23 man another's wealth. Whatsoever is sold in the shambles, that eat, asking no 26 question for conscience' sake: for the earth is the Lord's, and the fulness thereof. 27 If any of them that believe not bid you to a feast, and ye be disposed to go ; 28 whatsoever is set before you, eat, asking no question for conscience sake. But

if any man say unto you, This is offered in sacrifice unto idols, eat not for his

sake that showed it, and for conscience' sake: for the earth is the Lord's, and 29 the fulness thereof: conscience, I say, not thine own, but of the other: for why 30 is my liberty judged of another man's conscience? For if I by 'grace be a 31 partaker, why am I evil spoken of for that for which I give thanks? Whether 32 therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God. Give

none offence, neither to the Jews, nor to the 2 Gentiles, nor to the church of 33 God: even as I please all men in all things, not seeking mine own profit, but 11 the profit of many, that they may be saved. Be ye followers of me, even as I

NOW I praise you, brethren, that ye remember me in all things, and keep 3 the 3 ordinances, as I delivered them to you. But I would have you know, that

the head of every man is Christ; and the head of the woman is the man; and 4 the head of Christ is God. Every man praying or prophesying, having his head 5 covered, dishonoureth his head. But every woman that prayeth or prophesieth

with her head uncovered dishonoureth her head : for that is even all one as if she 6 were shaven. For if the woman be not covered, let her also be shorn : but if it 7 be a shame for a woman to be shorn or shaven, let her be covered. For a man

indeed ought not to cover his head, forasmuch as he is the image and glory of 8 God: but the woman is the glory of the man. For the man is not of the 9 woman; but the woman of the man. Neither was the man created for the 10 woman; but the woman for the man. For this cause ought the woman to have 11 4 power on her head because of the angels. Nevertheless neither is the man 12 without the woman, neither the woman without the man, in the Lord. For as

the woman is of the man, even so is the man also by the woman; but all things of God.

Judge in yourselves : is it comely that a woman pray unto God uncovered? 14 Doth not even nature itself teach you, that, if a man have long hair, it is a 15 shame unto him ? But if a woman have long hair, it is a glory to her : for her

hair is given her for a 5 covering. 16

But if any man seem to be contentious, we have no such custom, neither the churches of God. 17 NOW in this that I declare unto you I praise you not, that ye come together 18 not for the better, but for the worse. For first of all, when ye come together

in the church, I hear that there be 6 divisions among you; and I partly believe 19 it. For there must be also 7 heresies among you, that they which are approved may be made manifest among you.

When ye come together therefore into one place, this is not to eat the Lord's 21 supper. "For in cating every one taketh before other his own supper: and one 22 is hungry, and another is drunken. What! have ye not houses to eat and to drink

in? or despise ye the church of God, and shame 9 them that have not? What

shall I say to you? shall I praise you in this? I praise you not. 23 For I have received of the Lord, that which also I delivered unto you, That 24 the Lord Jesus the same night in which he was betrayed took bread: and when

he had given thanks, he brake it, and said, Take, eat : this is my body, which is 25 broken for you: this do 10 in remembrance of me. After the same manner also

he took the cup, when he had supped, saying, This cup is the new testament in 26 my blood : this do ye, as oft as ye drink it, in remembrance of me. For as

often as ye eat this bread, and drink this cup, "l ye do show the Lord's death till he come.

Wherefore whosoever shall eat this bread, and drink this cup of the Lord, 28 unworthily, shall be guilty of the body and blood of the Lord. But let a man 29 examine himself, and so let him eat of that bread, and drink of that cup. For

he that eateth and drinketh unworthily, eateth and drinketh ! damnation to 30 himself, not discerning the Lord's body. For this cause many are weak and 31 sickly among you, and many sleep. For if we would judge ourselves, we should 32 pot be judged. But when we are judged, we are chastened of the Lord, that 33 we should not be condemned with the world. Wherefore, my brethren, when 34 ye come together to eat, tarry one for another. And if any man hunger, let him

eat at home; that ye come not together unto a condemnation. And the rest

will I set in order when I come. 12 ,

Ye know that ye were Gentiles, carried away unto these dumb idols, even as ye 3 were led. Wherefore I give you to understand, that no man speaking by the

Spirit of God calleth Jesus s'accursed, and that no man can say that Jesus is

the Lord, but by the Holy Ghost. 4,5

Now there are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit. And there are dif6 ferences of + administrations, but the same Lord. And there are diversities of 7 operations, but it is the same God which worketh all in all. But the manifestation 8 of the Spirit is given to every man to profit withal. For to one is given by the

Spirit the word of wisdom; to another the word of knowledge by the same 9 Spirit; to another faith by the same Spirit; to another the gifts of healing by 10 the same Spirit; to another the working of miracles; to another prophecy; to

another discerning of spirits; to another divers kinds of tongues; to another 11 the interpretation of tongues: but all these worketh that one and the seifsame

Spirit, dividing to every man severally as he will. 19 For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of that 13 one body, being many, are one body: so also is Christ. For by one Spirit are

we all baptized into one body, whether we be Jews or 5 Gentiles, whether we be bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit.

For the body is not one member, but many. If the foot shall say, Because I 16 am not the hand, I am not of the body; is it therefore not of the body? And

if the ear shall say, Because I am not the eye, I am not of the body; is it 17 therefore not of the body? If the whole body were an eye, where were the 18 hearing? If the whole were hearing, where were the smelling? But now hath

God set the members every one of them in the body, as it hath pleased him. 19, 20 And if they were all one member, where were the body? But now are they 21 many members, yet but one body. And the eye cannot say unto the hand, I

have no need of thee: nor again the head to the feet, I have no need of you. 29 Nay, much more those members of the body, which seem to be more feeble, are 23 necessary: and those members of the body, which we think to be less honour.

able, upon these we bestow more abundant honour; and our uncomely parts 24 have more abundant comeliness. For our comely parts have no need : but

God hath tempered the body together, having given more abundant honour to 25 that part which lacked : that there should be no 7 schism in the body; but that -96 the members should have the same care one for another. And whether one

member suffer, all the members suffer with it; or one member be honoured, all 27 the members rejoice with it. Now ye are the body of Christ, and members in

particular. 28 And God hath set some in the church, first apostles, secondarily prophets,

thirdly teachers, after that miracles, then gifts of healings, helps, governments, 29 8 diversities of tongues. Are all apostles ? are all prophets are all teachers? are 30 all I workers of miracles? have all the gifts of healing ? do all speak with tongues? do all interpret ?

But covet earnestly the best gifts: and yet show I unto you a more excellent 13 way.---Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not cha

rity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal. And though I have 2 the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though

I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am 3 nothing. And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity, it profiteth me nothing.

Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth uot; charity 18 raunteth not 5 itself, is not puffed up, doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is

6 not easily provoked, thinketh no evil; rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth lin 7 the truth; beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.

Charity never faileth: but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail ; whether

there be tongues, they shall cease ; whether ihere be knowledge, it shal) vanish 9, 10 away. For we know in part, and we prophesy in part. But when that which is 11 perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done away. When I was a

child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when 12 I became a man, I put away childish things. For now we see through a glass,

S darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even

as also I am known. 13 And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is

charity. 14 FOLLOW after charity, and desire spiritual gifts, but rather that ye may pro

phesy. -For he that speaketh in an unknown tongue speaketh not unto men, but 2 unto God : for no man understandeth him ; howbeit in the spirit he speaketh 3 mysteries. But he that prophesieth speaketh unto men to edification, and exhort4 ation, and comfort. He that speaketh in an unknown tongue edifieth himself ; 5 but he that prophesieth edifieth the church. I would that ye all spake with tongues,

but rather that ye prophesied : for greater is he that prophesieth than he that speaketh with tongues, except he interpret, that the church may receive edifying.

Now, brethren, if I come unto you speaking with tongues, what shall I profit you, except I shall speak to you either by revelation, or by knowledge, or by pro7 phesying, or by doctrine? And even things without life giving sound, whether

pipe or harp, except they give a distinction in the 5 sounds, how shall it be known 8 what is piped or harped? For if the trumpet give an uncertain sound, who shall 9 prepare himself to the battle? So likewise ye, except ye utter by the tongue words

6 easy to be understood, how shall it be known what is spoken? for ye shall speak 10 into the air. There are, it may be, so many kinds of voices in the world, and 11 none of them is without signification. Therefore if I know not the meaning of

the voice, I shall be unto him that speaketh a barbarian, and he that speaketh

shall be a barbarian unto me. 12 Even so ye, forasmuch as ye are zealous 7of spiritual gifts, seek that ye may 13 excel to the edifying of the church. Wherefore let him that speaketh in an un14 known tongue pray that he may interpret. For if I pray in an unknown tongue, 15 my spirit prayeth, but my understanding is unfruitful. What is it then? I will

pray with ihe spirit, and I will pray with the understanding also : I will sing with 16 the spirit, and I will sing with the understanding also. Else when thou shalt

bless with the spirit, how shall he that occupieth the room of the unlearned say

Amen at thy giving of thanks, seeing he understandeth not what thou sayest? 17, 18 For thou verily givest thanks well, but the other is not edified. I thank my God, 19 I speak with tongues more than ye all: yet in the church I had rather speak five

words with my understanding, that by my voice I might teach others also, than ten

thousand words in an unknown tongue. 20 Brethren, be not children in understanding: howbeit in malice be ye children, 21 but in understanding be 8 men. In the law it is written, With men of other tongues

and other lips will I speak unto this people; and yet for all that will they not 22 hear me, saith the Lord. Wherefore tongues are for a sign, not to them that be

lieve, but to them that believe not : but prophesying serveth not for them that believe not, but for them which believe.

If therefore the whole church be come together into one place, and all speak with tongues, and there come in those that are unlearned, or unbelievers, will they 24 not say that ye are mad ? But if all prophesy, and there come in one that be25 lieveth not, or one unlearned, he is convinced of all, he is judged of all: and thus

are the secrets of his heart made manifest : and so falling down on his face he will worship God, and report that God is in you of a truth.

How is it then, brethren? when ye come together, every one of you hath a psalm, hath a doctrine, hath a tongue, hath a revelation, hath an interpretation. 27 Let all things be done unto edifying. If any man speak in an unknown tongue,

let it be by two, or at the most by three, and that by course; and let one interpret.

28 But if there be no interpreter, let him keep silence in the church; and let him 29 speak to himself, and to God. Let the prophets speak two or three, and let the 30 other judge. If any thing be revealed to another that sitteth by, let the first hold

31 his peace. For ye may all prophesy one by one, that all may learn, and all may 32, 33 be comforted. And the spirits of the prophets are subject to the prophets. For

God is not the author of 'confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints.

Let your women keep silence in the churches : for it is not permitted unto them to speak ; but they are commanded to be under obedience, as also saith the law. 35 And if they will learn any thing, let them ask their husbands at home, for it is 36 a shame for women to speak in the church. -What! came the word of God out from you? or came it unto you only?

If any man think himself to be a prophet, or spiritual, let him acknowledge 38 that the things that I write unto you are the commandments of the Lord. But 39 if any man be ignorant, let him be ignorant. Wherefore, brethren, covet to pro40 phesy, and forbid not to speak with tongues. Let all things be done decently and 15 I the

unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; by which also ye 2 are saved, if ye 2 keep in memory s what I preached unto you, unless ye have be3 lieved in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all thai which I also received, 4 how that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures; and that he was 5 buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the Scriptures: and that 6 he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: after that, he was seen of above fire

hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, 7 but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the 8 apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of 4 one born out of due 9 time. For I am the least of the apostles, that am not meet to be called an apose 10 tle, because I persecuted the church of God. But by the grace of God I am

what I am : and his grace which was bestowed upon me was not in vain; but I

laboured more abundantly than they all: yet not 1, but the grace of God which 11 was with me. Therefore whether it were 1 or they, so we preach, and so ye be

lieved. 12 Now if Christ be preached that he rose from the dead, how say some among 13 you that there is no resurrection of the dead? But if there be no resurrection 14 of the dead, then is Christ not risen: and if Christ be not risen, then is our preach15 ing vain, and your faith is also vain. Yea, and we are found false witnesses of

God; because we have testified of God that he raised up Christ: whom he raised 16 not up, if so be that the dead rise not. For if the dead rise not, then is not Christ

17 raised: and if Christ be not raised, your faith is vain ; ye are yet in your sins. 18,19 Then they also which are fallen asleep in Christ are perished. Itin this life only

we have hope in Christ, we are of all men most miserable.

But now is Christ risen from the dead, and become the firstfruits of them that 21 slept. For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the 22, 23 dead. For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive. But

every man in his own order : Christ the firstfruits; afterward they that are Christ's 24 at his coming. Then cometh the end, when he shall have delivered up the king,

dom to God, even the Father; when he shall have put down all rule and all 25 authority and power. For he must reign, till he hath put all enemies under his 26, 27 feet. The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death. For he bath put all things

under his feet. But when he saith, All things are put under him,it is manifest 28 that he is excepted, which did put all things under him. And when all things

shall be subdued unto him, then shall the Son also himself be subject unto him

that put all things under him, that God may be all in all. 29 Else what shall they do which are baptized for the dead, if the dead rise not at 30 all? why are they then baptized for the dead? And why stand we in jeopardy 31 every hour? I protest by 5 your rejoicing which I have in Christ Jesus our Lord, 32 I dié daily. It after the manner of men I have fought with beasts at Ephesus,

what advantageth it me, if the dead rise not? let us eat and drink; for to-morrow 33, 34 we die. Be not deceived : evil communications corrupt good manners. Awake

to righteousness, and sin not ; for some have not the knowledge of God: I speak
this to your shame.

35 But some man will say, How are the dead raised up? and with what body do 36 they come? Thou fool, that which thou sowest is not quickened, except it die : 37 and that which thou sowest, thou sowest not that body that shall be, but bare grain, 38 it may chance of wheat, or of some other grain : but God giveth it a body as it 39 hath pleased him, and to every seed his own body. All flesh is not the same fesh:

but there is one kind of flesh of men, another Alesh of beasts, another of fishes, 40 and another of birds. There are also celestial bodies, and bodies terrestrial : but

the glory of the celestial is one, and the glory of the terrestrial is another. There 41 is one glory of the sun, and another glory of the moon, and another glory of the

stars: for one star differeth from another star in glory. 42 So also is the resurrection of the dead. It is sown in corruption; it is raised 43 in incorruption : it is sown in dishonour; it is raised in glory: it is sown in weak44 ness ; it is raised in power : it is sown a natural body; it is raised a spiritual body. 45 There is a natural body, and there is a spiritual body. And so it is written, The

first man Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam was made a quickening 46 spirit. Howbeit that was not first which is spiritual, but that which is natural; 47 and afterward that which is spiritual. The first man is of the earth, earthy: the 48 second man is the Lord from heaven. As is the earthy, such are they also that are 49 earthy: and as is the heavenly, such are they also that are heavenly. And as we

have borne the image of the earthy, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly.

Now this I say, brethren, that Hesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of 51 God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption. Behold, I show you a mys52 tery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, in a moment, in the

twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead 53 shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. For this corruptible must

put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. 54 So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall

have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, 55 Death is swallowed up in victory. O death, where is thy sting? 'grave, where 56 is thy victory? The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law. 57 But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. 58 Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in

the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the

Lord. 16

NOW concerning the collection for the saints, as I have given order to the churches of Galatia, even so do ye. Upon the first day of the week let every one 2 of you lay by him in store, as God hath prospered him, that there be no gather3 ings when I come. And when I come, whomsoever ye shall approve by your 4 letters, them will I send to bring your ? liberality unto Jerusalem. And if it be

meet that I go also, they shall go with me. 5 Now I will come unto you, when I shall pass through Macedonia : for I do 6 pass through Macedonia. And it may be that I will abide, yea, and winter with 7 you, that ye may bring me on my journey whithersoever I go. For I will not see

you now by the way, but I trust to tarry a while with you, if the Lord permit. 8, 9 But I will tarry at Ephesus until Pentecost. For a great door and effectual is

opened unto me, and ihere are many adversaries. 10 Now if Timotheus come, see that he may be with you without fear: for he 11 worketh the work of the Lord, as I also do. "Let no man therefore despise him:

but conduct him forth in peace, that he may come unto me: for I look for him 12 with the brethren. As touching our brother Apollos, I greatly desired him to

come unto you with the brethren : but his will was not at all to come at this time:

:

but he will come when he shall have convenient time. 13, 14 Watch ye, stand fast in the faith, quit you like men, be strong. Let all your

things be done with charity. 15 I beseech you, brethren, (ye know the house of Stephanas, that it is the firstfruits

of Achaia, and that they have addicted themselves to the ministry of the saints,) 16 that ye submit yourselves unto such, and to every one that helpeth with us, and 17 laboureth. I am glad of the coming of Stephanas and Fortunatus and Achaicus: 18 for that which was lacking on your part they have supplied. For they have re

freshed my spirit and yours: therefore acknowledge ye them that are such.
