1 Corinthians 3

1And I could not speake vnto you, brethren, as vnto spirituall men, but as vnto carnall, euen as vnto babes in Christ.

2I gaue you milke to drinke, and not meat: for yee were not yet able to beare it, neither yet nowe are yee able.

3For yee are yet carnall: for whereas there is among you enuying, and strife, and diuisions, are ye not carnall, and walke as men?

4For when one sayeth, I am Pauls, and another, I am Apollos, are yee not carnall?

5Who is Paul then? and who is Apollos, but the ministers by whome yee beleeued, and as the Lord gaue to euery man?

6I haue planted, Apollos watred, but God gaue the increase.

7So then, neither is hee that planteth any thing, neither hee that watreth, but God that giueth the increase.

8And he that planteth, and he that watreth, are one, and euery man shall receiue his wages, according to his labour.

9For we together are Gods labourers: yee are Gods husbandrie, and Gods building.

10According to the grace of God giuen to mee, as a skilfull master builder, I haue laide the foundation, and another buildeth thereon: but let euery man take heede how he buildeth vpon it.

11For other foundation can no man laie, then that which is laied, which is Iesus Christ.

12And if any man builde on this foundation, golde, siluer, precious stones, timber, haye, or stubble,

13Euery mans worke shalbe made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shalbe reueiled by the fire: and the fire shall trie euery mans worke of what sort it is.

14If any mans worke, that he hath built vpon, abide, he shall receiue wages.

15If any mans worke burne, he shall lose, but he shalbe saued himselfe: neuerthelesse yet as it were by the fire.

16Knowe ye not that ye are the Temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?

17If any man destroy the Temple of God, him shall God destroy: for the Temple of God is holy, which ye are.

18Let no man deceiue himselfe: If any man among you seeme to be wise in this world, let him be a foole, that he may be wise.

19For the wisdome of this worlde is foolishnesse with God: for it is written, He catcheth the wise in their owne craftinesse.

20And againe, The Lord knoweth that the thoughtes of the wise be vaine.

21Therefore let no man reioyce in men: for all things are yours.

22Whether it be Paul, or Apollos, or Cephas, or the world, or life, or death: whether they be things present, or thinges to come, euen all are yours,

23And ye Christes, and Christ Gods.
