1 Corinthians 12
The Use of Spiritual Gifts1 Now concerning a spiritual gifts, brethren b I do not want you to be unaware. 2 c You know that when you were pagans, you were d led astray to the e mute idols, however you were led. 3 Therefore I make known to you that no one speaking ▼ , g by the Spirit of God says, “Jesus is ▼
▼ Gr anathema, i accursed”; and no one can say, “Jesus is j Lord,” except ▼ , l by the Holy Spirit. 4 Now there are m varieties of gifts, but the same Spirit. 5 And there are varieties of ministries, and the same Lord. 6 There are varieties of effects, but the same n God who works all things in all persons. 7 But to each one is given the manifestation of the Spirit o for the common good. 8 For to one is given the word of p wisdom through the Spirit, and to another the word of q knowledge according to the same Spirit; 9 to another r faith ▼ by the same Spirit, and to another t gifts of ▼
▼ Lit healingshealing ▼ by the one Spirit, 10 and to another the ▼
▼ Lit effectseffecting of ▼ , y miracles, and to another z prophecy, and to another the ▼
▼ Lit distinguishings, ab distinguishing of spirits, to another various ac kinds of tongues, and to another the ad interpretation of tongues. 11 But one and the same Spirit works all these things ae distributing to each one individually just as He wills. 12 For even af as the body is one and yet has many members, and all the members of the body, though they are many, are one body ag so also is Christ. 13 For ▼ , ai by one Spirit we were all baptized into one body, whether aj Jews or Greeks, whether slaves or free, and we were all made to ak drink of one Spirit. 14 For al the body is not one member, but many. 15 If the foot says, “Because I am not a hand, I am not a part of the body,” it is not for this reason ▼
▼ Lit not a partany the less a part of the body. 16 And if the ear says, “Because I am not an eye, I am not a part of the body,” it is not for this reason ▼
▼ Lit not a partany the less a part of the body. 17 If the whole body were an eye, where would the hearing be? If the whole were hearing, where would the sense of smell be? 18 But now God has ao placed the members, each one of them, in the body ap just as He desired. 19 If they were all one member, where would the body be? 20 But now aq there are many members, but one body. 21 And the eye cannot say to the hand, “I have no need of you”; or again the head to the feet, “I have no need of you.” 22 On the contrary ▼
▼ Lit to a much greater degree the membersit is much truer that the members of the body which seem to be weaker are necessary; 23 and those members of the body which we ▼
▼ Or think to bedeem less honorable, ▼
▼ Or these we clothe withon these we bestow more abundant honor, and our less presentable members become much more presentable, 24 whereas our more presentable members have no need of it. But God has so composed the body, giving more abundant honor to that member which lacked, 25 so that there may be no ▼
▼ Lit schismdivision in the body, but that the members may have the same care for one another. 26 And if one member suffers, all the members suffer with it; if one member is ▼
▼ Lit glorifiedhonored, all the members rejoice with it. 27 Now you are aw Christ’s body, and ax individually members of it. 28 And God has ▼
▼ Lit set some in, az appointed in ba the church, first bb apostles, second bc prophets, third bd teachers, then ▼ , bf miracles, then bg gifts of healings, helps bh administrations, various bi kinds of tongues. 29 All are not apostles, are they? All are not prophets, are they? All are not teachers, are they? All are not workers of ▼ miracles, are they? 30 All do not have gifts of healings, do they? All do not speak with tongues, do they? All do not bk interpret, do they? 31 But bl earnestly desire the greater gifts. And I show you a still more excellent way.
