1 Corinthians 4
Servants of Christ1So [4us 1let 3consider 2a man] as servants of Christ, and managers of the mysteries of God! 2But remaining, it is sought in the managers that [3trustworthy 1one 2should be found]. 3But to me [2a least thing 1it is 3that 5by 6you 4I should be examined], or by a human's day. But not even myself do I examine. 4For nothing by myself am I fully conscious; but not in this have I been justified; but the one examining me is the Lord. 5So that [2not 4before 5its time 3anything 1judge]! until whenever [3should come 1the 2Lord], who both will give light to the hidden things of the darkness, and will make manifest the counsels of the hearts. And then the high praise shall be to each from God.
Paul Questions Motives6And these things, brethren, I changed appearance to myself and Apollos on account of you, that in us you should learn not [2above 3what 4has been written 1to think], that not one over one you be inflated against the other. 7For who scrutinizes you? And what do you have which you have not received? And if also you received, why do you boast as not having received? 8[2already 3satisfied 1Are you]? [2already 1Are you] enriched? [2apart from 3us 1Do you reign]? And I ought indeed that you reigned, that also we with you should have reigned together. 9For I think that God [2us 3apostles 4last 1exhibited] as condemned to death, for [2a theater 1we became] to the world, and to angels, and to men. 10We are moronish on account of Christ, but you are skilled in Christ; we are weak, but you are strong; you are honorable, but we are without honor.
Afflictions of the Apostles11As far as the present hour we both hunger, and thirst, and are naked, and are buffeted, and unsettled; 12and we tire working with our own hands. Being reviled, we bless; being persecuted, we endure; 13being blasphemed, we appeal; as the rubbish of the world, we were of all the sweepings until now. 14Not shaming you do I write these things, but as [3children 1my 2beloved] I admonish you. 15For if [2ten thousand 3instructors 1you should have] in Christ, but not many fathers. For in Christ Jesus through the good news I engendered you. 16I appeal to you then, [2mimics 3of me 1become]! 17On account of this I send to you Timothy, who is [3child 1my 2beloved], and trustworthy in the Lord, who shall remind you of my ways -- the ones in Christ, as everywhere in every assembly I teach. 18[2as to 4not 5coming 1And 3my] to you, some were inflated. 19But I shall come quickly to you, if the Lord should want, and I will know, not the word of the ones being inflated, but the power. 20For not [4in 5word 1is the 2kingdom 3of God], but in power. 21What do you want? [2with 3a rod 1Should I come] to you, or in love and a spirit of gentleness?
