1 Corinthians 3:1-9

CEB 1 Brothers and sisters, I couldn't talk to you like spiritual people but like unspiritual people, like babies in Christ. NRS 1 And so, brothers and sisters, I could not speak to you as spiritual people, but rather as people of the flesh, as infants in Christ. CEB 2 I gave you milk to drink instead of solid food, because you weren't up to it yet. NRS 2 I fed you with milk, not solid food, for you were not ready for solid food. Even now you are still not ready, CEB 3 Now you are still not up to it because you are still unspiritual. When jealousy and fighting exist between you, aren't you unspiritual and living by human standards? NRS 3 for you are still of the flesh. For as long as there is jealousy and quarreling among you, are you not of the flesh, and behaving according to human inclinations? CEB 4 When someone says, "I belong to Paul," and someone else says, "I belong to Apollos," aren't you acting like people without the Spirit? NRS 4 For when one says, "I belong to Paul," and another, "I belong to Apollos," are you not merely human? CEB 5 After all, what is Apollos? What is Paul? They are servants who helped you to believe. Each one had a role given to them by the Lord: NRS 5 What then is Apollos? What is Paul? Servants through whom you came to believe, as the Lord assigned to each. CEB 6 I planted, Apollos watered, but God made it grow. NRS 6 I planted, Apollos watered, but God gave the growth. CEB 7 Because of this, neither the one who plants nor the one who waters is anything, but the only one who is anything is God who makes it grow. NRS 7 So neither the one who plants nor the one who waters is anything, but only God who gives the growth. CEB 8 The one who plants and the one who waters work together, but each one will receive their own reward for their own labor. NRS 8 The one who plants and the one who waters have a common purpose, and each will receive wages according to the labor of each. CEB 9 We are God's coworkers, and you are God's field, God's building. NRS 9 For we are God's servants, working together; you are God's field, God's building.
