|1||And I, brethren, could not speak unto you as unto spiritual, but as unto carnal, even as unto babes in Christ.|
|2||I have fed you with milk, and not with ameat: for hitherto ye were not able to bear it, neither yet now are ye able.|
|3||For ye are yet carnal: for whereas there is among you envying, and strife, and divisions, are ye not carnal, and walk as men?|
|4||For while one saith, I am of Paul; and another, I am of Apollos; are ye not carnal?|
|5||Who then is Paul, and who is Apollos, but ministers by whom ye believed, even as the Lord gave to every man?|
|6||I have planted, Apollos watered; but God gave the increase.|
|7||So then neither is he that planteth any thing, neither he that watereth; but God that giveth the increase.|
|8||Now he that planteth and he that watereth are one: and every man shall receive his own reward according to his own labour.|
|9||For we are labourers together with God: ye are God's husbandry, ye are God's building.|
|10||According to the grace of God which is given unto me, as a wise masterbuilder, I have laid the foundation, and another buildeth thereon. But let every man take heed how he buildeth thereupon.|
For other 1foundation can 2no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ.
|12||Now if any man build upon this foundation gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, stubble;|
|13||Every man's work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man's work of what sort it is.|
|14||If any man's work abide which he hath built thereupon, he shall receive a reward.|
|15||If any man's work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire.|
|16||Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?|
|17||If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are.|
|18||Let no man deceive himself. If any man among you seemeth to be wise in this aworld, let him become a fool, that he may be wise.|
For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, 1He taketh the wise in their own craftiness.
1 Job 5:13
And again, 1The Lord knoweth the thoughts of the wise, that they are vain.
1 Psa 94:11
|21||Therefore let no man glory in men. For all things are your's;|
|22||Whether Paul, or Apollos, or Cephas, or the world, or life, or death, or things present, or things to come; all are your's;|
|23||And ye are Christ's; and Christ is God's.|
