Romans 15:2

2 a  Let each of us please his neighbor for his good, to build him up.

1 Corinthians 10:33

33just as b  I try to please everyone in everything I do, c  not seeking my own advantage, but that of many, that they may be saved.

1 Corinthians 14:12-17

12So with yourselves, since you are eager for manifestations of the Spirit, strive to excel in building up the church.

13Therefore, one who speaks in a tongue should pray that he may interpret. 14For if I pray in a tongue, my spirit prays but my mind is unfruitful. 15What am I to do? I will pray with my spirit, but I will pray with my mind also; d  I will sing praise with my spirit, but I will e  sing with my mind also. 16Otherwise, if you give thanks with your spirit, how can anyone in the position of an outsider
Or  of him that is without gifts
say g  Amento h  your thanksgiving when he does not know what you are saying?
17For you may be giving thanks well enough, but the other person is not being built up.

1 Corinthians 14:26

Orderly Worship

26What then, brothers? When you come together, each one has i  a hymn j  a lesson k  a revelation l  a tongue, or m  an interpretation. n  Let all things be done for building up.

Ephesians 4:29

29 o  Let no corrupting talk come out of your mouths, but only such as is good for building up, as fits the occasion, that it may give p  grace to those who hear.

1 Thessalonians 5:11-12

11Therefore encourage one another and build one another up, just as you are doing.

Final Instructions and Benediction

12We ask you, brothers, q  to respect those who labor among you and r  are over you in the Lord and admonish you,

1 Timothy 1:4

4nor s  to devote themselves to myths and endless t  genealogies, which promote u  speculations rather than the stewardship
Or good order
from God that is by faith.
