1 Corinthians 3

And I, my Brethren, could not talk with you, as with spiritual persons, but as with the carnal, as with babes in Messiah. I gave you milk, and did not give you solid food: for ye were not then able to receive it; and even now, ye are not able. For ye are still in the flesh. For, as there are among you envying, and contention, and parties, are ye not carnal, and walking in the flesh? For, while one of you saith, I am of Paul; and another saith, I am of Apollos; are ye not carnal? For, who is Paul, or who is Apollos, but the ministers by whom ye believed, each one as the Lord gave to him? I planted, and Apollos watered; but God produced the growth. Not therefore he that planted, is to be accounted of, nor he that watered, but God who produced the growth. And he that planted, and he that watered are on a par; each receiveth his reward, according to his labor. For we labor with God: and ye are God's husbandry, and God's edifice. 10 According to the grace of God which was given me, I laid the foundation like a wise architect; and another buildeth on it. But let each one see, how he buildeth on it. 11 For any other foundation can no man lay, different from that which is laid, which is Jesus Messiah. 12 And if any one buildeth on this foundation, either gold, or silver, or precious stones, or wood, or hay, or stubble; 13 the work of each will be exposed to view; for the day will expose it; because it is to be tested by fire; and the fire will disclose the work of each, of what sort it is. 14 And that builder whose work shall endure, will receive his reward. 15 And he, whose work shall burn up, will suffer loss; yet himself will escape; but it will be, as from the fire. 16 Know ye not, that ye are the temple of God? and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you? 17 Whoever shall mar the temple of God, God will mar him: for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are. 18 Let no one deceive himself. Whoever among you thinketh that he is wise in this world, let him become a fool, that he may be wise. 19 For the wisdom of this world is fatuity with God: for it is written, He catcheth the wise in their own craftiness. 20 And again: The Lord knoweth the devices of the wise, that they are vain. 21 Wherefore, let no one glory in men: for all things are yours; 22 whether Paul, or Apollos, or Cephas, or the world, or life, or death, or things present, or things to come; all things are yours: 23 and ye are Messiah's, and Messiah is God's.
