1 Corinthians 12

CEBA 1 Brothers and sisters, I don't want you to be ignorant about spiritual gifts. NIV 1 Now about the gifts of the Spirit, brothers and sisters, I do not want you to be uninformed. CEBA 2 You know that when you were Gentiles you were often misled by false gods that can't even speak. NIV 2 You know that when you were pagans, somehow or other you were influenced and led astray to mute idols. CEBA 3 So I want to make it clear to you that no one says, "Jesus is cursed!" when speaking by God's Spirit, and no one can say, "Jesus is Lord," except by the Holy Spirit. NIV 3 Therefore I want you to know that no one who is speaking by the Spirit of God says, “Jesus be cursed,” and no one can say, “Jesus is Lord,” except by the Holy Spirit. CEBA 4 There are different spiritual gifts but the same Spirit; NIV 4 There are different kinds of gifts, but the same Spirit distributes them. CEBA 5 and there are different ministries and the same Lord; NIV 5 There are different kinds of service, but the same Lord. CEBA 6 and there are different activities but the same God who produces all of them in everyone. NIV 6 There are different kinds of working, but in all of them and in everyone it is the same God at work. CEBA 7 A demonstration of the Spirit is given to each person for the common good. NIV 7 Now to each one the manifestation of the Spirit is given for the common good. CEBA 8 A word of wisdom is given by the Spirit to one person, a word of knowledge to another according to the same Spirit, NIV 8 To one there is given through the Spirit a message of wisdom, to another a message of knowledge by means of the same Spirit, CEBA 9 faith to still another by the same Spirit, gifts of healing to another in the one Spirit, NIV 9 to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healing by that one Spirit, CEBA 10 performance of miracles to another, prophecy to another, the ability to tell spirits apart to another, different kinds of tongues to another, and the interpretation of the tongues to another. NIV 10 to another miraculous powers, to another prophecy, to another distinguishing between spirits, to another speaking in different kinds of tongues, and to still another the interpretation of tongues. CEBA 11 All these things are produced by the one and same Spirit who gives what he wants to each person. NIV 11 All these are the work of one and the same Spirit, and he distributes them to each one, just as he determines. CEBA 12 Christ is just like the human body—a body is a unit and has many parts; and all the parts of the body are one body, even though there are many. NIV 12 Just as a body, though one, has many parts, but all its many parts form one body, so it is with Christ. CEBA 13 We were all baptized by one Spirit into one body, whether Jew or Greek, or slave or free, and we all were given one Spirit to drink. NIV 13 For we were all baptized by one Spirit so as to form one body—whether Jews or Gentiles, slave or free—and we were all given the one Spirit to drink. CEBA 14 Certainly the body isn't one part but many. NIV 14 Even so the body is not made up of one part but of many. CEBA 15 If the foot says, "I'm not part of the body because I'm not a hand," does that mean it's not part of the body? NIV 15 Now if the foot should say, “Because I am not a hand, I do not belong to the body,” it would not for that reason stop being part of the body. CEBA 16 If the ear says, "I'm not part of the body because I'm not an eye," does that mean it's not part of the body? NIV 16 And if the ear should say, “Because I am not an eye, I do not belong to the body,” it would not for that reason stop being part of the body. CEBA 17 If the whole body were an eye, what would happen to the hearing? And if the whole body were an ear, what would happen to the sense of smell? NIV 17 If the whole body were an eye, where would the sense of hearing be? If the whole body were an ear, where would the sense of smell be? CEBA 18 But as it is, God has placed each one of the parts in the body just like he wanted. NIV 18 But in fact God has placed the parts in the body, every one of them, just as he wanted them to be. CEBA 19 If all were one and the same body part, what would happen to the body? NIV 19 If they were all one part, where would the body be? CEBA 20 But as it is, there are many parts but one body. NIV 20 As it is, there are many parts, but one body. CEBA 21 So the eye can't say to the hand, "I don't need you," or in turn, the head can't say to the feet, "I don't need you." NIV 21 The eye cannot say to the hand, “I don’t need you!” And the head cannot say to the feet, “I don’t need you!” CEBA 22 Instead, the parts of the body that people think are the weakest are the most necessary. NIV 22 On the contrary, those parts of the body that seem to be weaker are indispensable, CEBA 23 The parts of the body that we think are less honorable are the ones we honor the most. The private parts of our body that aren't presentable are the ones that are given the most dignity. NIV 23 and the parts that we think are less honorable we treat with special honor. And the parts that are unpresentable are treated with special modesty, CEBA 24 The parts of our body that are presentable don't need this. But God has put the body together, giving greater honor to the part with less honor NIV 24 while our presentable parts need no special treatment. But God has put the body together, giving greater honor to the parts that lacked it, CEBA 25 so that there won't be division in the body and so the parts might have mutual concern for each other. NIV 25 so that there should be no division in the body, but that its parts should have equal concern for each other. CEBA 26 If one part suffers, all the parts suffer with it; if one part gets the glory, all the parts celebrate with it. NIV 26 If one part suffers, every part suffers with it; if one part is honored, every part rejoices with it. CEBA 27 You are the body of Christ and parts of each other. NIV 27 Now you are the body of Christ, and each one of you is a part of it. CEBA 28 In the church, God has appointed first apostles, second prophets, third teachers, then miracles, then gifts of healing, the ability to help others, leadership skills, different kinds of tongues. NIV 28 And God has placed in the church first of all apostles, second prophets, third teachers, then miracles, then gifts of healing, of helping, of guidance, and of different kinds of tongues. CEBA 29 All aren't apostles, are they? All aren't prophets, are they? All aren't teachers, are they? All don't perform miracles, do they? NIV 29 Are all apostles? Are all prophets? Are all teachers? Do all work miracles? CEBA 30 All don't have gifts of healing, do they? All don't speak in different tongues, do they? All don't interpret, do they? NIV 30 Do all have gifts of healing? Do all speak in tongues ? Do all interpret? CEBA 31 Use your ambition to try to get the greater gifts. And I'm going to show you an even better way. NIV 31 Now eagerly desire the greater gifts. And yet I will show you the most excellent way.
