Book 46 1 Corinthians Chapter 001
|001:001||Paul called to be an apostle of Jesus Christ through the will|
of God, and Sosthenes our brother,
|001:002||Unto the church of God which is at Corinth, to them that are|
sanctified in Christ Jesus, called to be saints, with all that
in every place call upon the name of Jesus Christ our Lord,
both their's and our's:
|001:003||Grace be unto you, and peace, from God our Father, and from|
the Lord Jesus Christ.
|001:004||I thank my God always on your behalf, for the grace of God|
which is given you by Jesus Christ;
|001:005||That in every thing ye are enriched by him, in all utterance,|
and in all knowledge;
|001:006||Even as the testimony of Christ was confirmed in you:|
|001:007||So that ye come behind in no gift; waiting for the coming of|
our Lord Jesus Christ:
|001:008||Who shall also confirm you unto the end, that ye may be|
blameless in the day of our Lord Jesus Christ.
|001:009||God is faithful, by whom ye were called unto the fellowship of|
his Son Jesus Christ our Lord.
|001:010||Now I beseech you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus|
Christ, that ye all speak the same thing, and that there be no
divisions among you; but that ye be perfectly joined together
in the same mind and in the same judgment.
|001:011||For it hath been declared unto me of you, my brethren, by them|
which are of the house of Chloe, that there are contentions
|001:012||Now this I say, that every one of you saith, I am of Paul; and|
I of Apollos; and I of Cephas; and I of Christ.
|001:013||Is Christ divided? was Paul crucified for you? or were ye|
baptized in the name of Paul?
|001:014||I thank God that I baptized none of you, but Crispus and|
|001:015||Lest any should say that I had baptized in mine own name.|
|001:016||And I baptized also the household of Stephanas: besides, I|
know not whether I baptized any other.
|001:017||For Christ sent me not to baptize, but to preach the gospel:|
not with wisdom of words, lest the cross of Christ should be
made of none effect.
|001:018||For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish|
foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of
|001:019||For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and|
will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent.
|001:020||Where is the wise? where is the scribe? where is the disputer|
of this world? hath not God made foolish the wisdom of this
|001:021||For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew|
not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to
save them that believe.
|001:022||For the Jews require a sign, and the Greeks seek after wisdom:|
|001:023||But we preach Christ crucified, unto the Jews a|
stumblingblock, and unto the Greeks foolishness;
|001:024||But unto them which are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ|
the power of God, and the wisdom of God.
|001:025||Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the|
weakness of God is stronger than men.
|001:026||For ye see your calling, brethren, how that not many wise men|
after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called:
|001:027||But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to|
confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the
world to confound the things which are mighty;
|001:028||And base things of the world, and things which are despised,|
hath God chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to
nought things that are:
|001:029||That no flesh should glory in his presence.|
|001:030||But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us|
wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption:
|001:031||That, according as it is written, He that glorieth, let him|
glory in the Lord.
