1 Corinthians 14:1-25

RSVA 1 Make love your aim, and earnestly desire the spiritual gifts, especially that you may prophesy. NIV 1 Follow the way of love and eagerly desire gifts of the Spirit, especially prophecy. RSVA 2 For one who speaks in a tongue speaks not to men but to God; for no one understands him, but he utters mysteries in the Spirit. NIV 2 For anyone who speaks in a tongue does not speak to people but to God. Indeed, no one understands them; they utter mysteries by the Spirit. RSVA 3 On the other hand, he who prophesies speaks to men for their upbuilding and encouragement and consolation. NIV 3 But the one who prophesies speaks to people for their strengthening, encouraging and comfort. RSVA 4 He who speaks in a tongue edifies himself, but he who prophesies edifies the church. NIV 4 Anyone who speaks in a tongue edifies themselves, but the one who prophesies edifies the church. RSVA 5 Now I want you all to speak in tongues, but even more to prophesy. He who prophesies is greater than he who speaks in tongues, unless some one interprets, so that the church may be edified. NIV 5 I would like every one of you to speak in tongues, but I would rather have you prophesy. The one who prophesies is greater than the one who speaks in tongues, unless someone interprets, so that the church may be edified. RSVA 6 Now, brethren, if I come to you speaking in tongues, how shall I benefit you unless I bring you some revelation or knowledge or prophecy or teaching? NIV 6 Now, brothers and sisters, if I come to you and speak in tongues, what good will I be to you, unless I bring you some revelation or knowledge or prophecy or word of instruction? RSVA 7 If even lifeless instruments, such as the flute or the harp, do not give distinct notes, how will any one know what is played? NIV 7 Even in the case of lifeless things that make sounds, such as the pipe or harp, how will anyone know what tune is being played unless there is a distinction in the notes? RSVA 8 And if the bugle gives an indistinct sound, who will get ready for battle? NIV 8 Again, if the trumpet does not sound a clear call, who will get ready for battle? RSVA 9 So with yourselves; if you in a tongue utter speech that is not intelligible, how will any one know what is said? For you will be speaking into the air. NIV 9 So it is with you. Unless you speak intelligible words with your tongue, how will anyone know what you are saying? You will just be speaking into the air. RSVA 10 There are doubtless many different languages in the world, and none is without meaning; NIV 10 Undoubtedly there are all sorts of languages in the world, yet none of them is without meaning. RSVA 11 but if I do not know the meaning of the language, I shall be a foreigner to the speaker and the speaker a foreigner to me. NIV 11 If then I do not grasp the meaning of what someone is saying, I am a foreigner to the speaker, and the speaker is a foreigner to me. RSVA 12 So with yourselves; since you are eager for manifestations of the Spirit, strive to excel in building up the church. NIV 12 So it is with you. Since you are eager for gifts of the Spirit, try to excel in those that build up the church. RSVA 13 Therefore, he who speaks in a tongue should pray for the power to interpret. NIV 13 For this reason the one who speaks in a tongue should pray that they may interpret what they say. RSVA 14 For if I pray in a tongue, my spirit prays but my mind is unfruitful. NIV 14 For if I pray in a tongue, my spirit prays, but my mind is unfruitful. RSVA 15 What am I to do? I will pray with the spirit and I will pray with the mind also; I will sing with the spirit and I will sing with the mind also. NIV 15 So what shall I do? I will pray with my spirit, but I will also pray with my understanding; I will sing with my spirit, but I will also sing with my understanding. RSVA 16 Otherwise, if you bless with the spirit, how can any one in the position of an outsider say the "Amen" to your thanksgiving when he does not know what you are saying? NIV 16 Otherwise when you are praising God in the Spirit, how can someone else, who is now put in the position of an inquirer, say “Amen” to your thanksgiving, since they do not know what you are saying? RSVA 17 For you may give thanks well enough, but the other man is not edified. NIV 17 You are giving thanks well enough, but no one else is edified. RSVA 18 I thank God that I speak in tongues more than you all; NIV 18 I thank God that I speak in tongues more than all of you. RSVA 19 nevertheless, in church I would rather speak five words with my mind, in order to instruct others, than ten thousand words in a tongue. NIV 19 But in the church I would rather speak five intelligible words to instruct others than ten thousand words in a tongue. RSVA 20 Brethren, do not be children in your thinking; be babes in evil, but in thinking be mature. NIV 20 Brothers and sisters, stop thinking like children. In regard to evil be infants, but in your thinking be adults. RSVA 21 In the law it is written, "By men of strange tongues and by the lips of foreigners will I speak to this people, and even then they will not listen to me, says the Lord." NIV 21 In the Law it is written: “With other tongues and through the lips of foreigners I will speak to this people, but even then they will not listen to me, says the Lord.” RSVA 22 Thus, tongues are a sign not for believers but for unbelievers, while prophecy is not for unbelievers but for believers. NIV 22 Tongues, then, are a sign, not for believers but for unbelievers; prophecy, however, is not for unbelievers but for believers. RSVA 23 If, therefore, the whole church assembles and all speak in tongues, and outsiders or unbelievers enter, will they not say that you are mad? NIV 23 So if the whole church comes together and everyone speaks in tongues, and inquirers or unbelievers come in, will they not say that you are out of your mind? RSVA 24 But if all prophesy, and an unbeliever or outsider enters, he is convicted by all, he is called to account by all, NIV 24 But if an unbeliever or an inquirer comes in while everyone is prophesying, they are convicted of sin and are brought under judgment by all, RSVA 25 the secrets of his heart are disclosed; and so, falling on his face, he will worship God and declare that God is really among you. NIV 25 as the secrets of their hearts are laid bare. So they will fall down and worship God, exclaiming, “God is really among you!”
