1 Corinthians 12


Concerning the Divisions of the Spirituals

But concerning the spirituals, brethren, I do not want you to be ignorant. You know that when you were nations, [2to 3the 5idols 4voiceless 6even as 7you were led 1being led away]. Therefore I make known to you, that no one [2in 3spirit 4of God 1speaking] says, Jesus is anathema; and no one is able to say, Lord Jesus, except by [2spirit 1holy]. But [2divisions 3of favors 1there are], but the same spirit; and [2divisions 3of services 1there are], and the same Lord. And [2divisions 3of operations 1there are], [3the 1but 4same 2it is] God, the one operating all things in all. And to each is given the open display of the spirit for advantage. For indeed one through the spirit is given word of wisdom; and to another word of knowledge, according to the same spirit. And to another belief, in the same spirit; and to another favors of cures, in the same spirit; 10 and to another operations of powers; and to another prophecy; and to another distinction of spirits; and to another types of languages; and to another translation of languages. 11 But all these operate by the one and the same spirit, dividing privately to each as he wills.

One Body, Many Members

12 For just as the body is one, and [3members 1has 2many], but all the members of the [2body 1one], being many, are one body; so also the Christ. 13 For also in one spirit we all in one body were immersed, whether Jews, whether Greeks, whether slaves, whether free; and all into one spirit given to drink. 14 For also the body is not one member, but many. 15 If [3should say 1the 2foot] that, I am not a hand, I am not of the body; it is not because of this it is not of the body. 16 And if [3should say 1the 2ear] that, I am not an eye, I am not of the body; it is not because of this it is not of the body. 17 If all the body was an eye, where would be the hearing? If all was hearing, where would be the smelling? 18 But now God made the members, [2one 1each] of them in the body, as he wanted. 19 But if it was all were one member, where the body? 20 But now there are many members indeed, but one body. 21 [3is not 4able 1And 2the eye] to say to the hand, [2need 3of you 1I have no]; or again the head to the feet, [2need 3of you 1I have no]. 22 But more rather, the [4which seem 1members 2of the 3body 6weaker 5to be] are important; 23 and the ones which seem to be exceedingly without honor of the body, these [3honor 2more extra 1we invest]; and [2indecent parts 1our 5decency 4more extra 3have]; 24  but [2decent parts 1our 4no 5need 3have]. But God mixed together the body to the part lacking, [2more extra 1having given] honor, 25 that there might not be a split in the body, but [4the 5same 7for 8one another 3should have 6concern 1that the 2members]. 26 And whether [3suffers 1one 2member], [4suffer along 1all 2the 3members]; whether [3be glorified 1one 2member], [4rejoice along 1all 2the 3members]. 27 But you are the body of Christ, and members in turn. 28 And whom indeed [2appointed 1God] in the assembly, first apostles, second prophets, third teachers, thereupon works of power, then favors of cures, assistance, guidance, types of languages. 29 Not all are apostles. Not all are prophets. Not all are teachers. Not all are works of power. 30 Not all [2favors 1have] of cures. Not all [2languages 1speak]. Not all interpret. 31 But be zealous for the [2favors 1better]. And yet [3that exceeds 2a way 1I will show to you].
