1:5 5 For in all things ye be made rich in him, in each word, and in each knowing [and in each knowing, or science] , 5 that in all things {points} ye are made rich by him, in all speech [learning] {every word} and in all knowledge {manner of knowledge} 5 That in all things ye are made rich in him, in all kind of speech, and in all knowledge: 5 That in every thing ye are enriched by him, in all utterance, and in all knowledge;
1:6 6 as the witnessing of Christ is confirmed in you; 6 (even as the testimony of Jesus Christ was confirmed in you,) 6 As the testimony of Jesus Christ hath been confirmed in you: 6 Even as the testimony of Christ was confirmed in you:
1:7 7 so that nothing fail to you in any grace, that abide the showing of our Lord Jesus Christ [abiding the revelation, or showing, of our Lord Jesus Christ] ; 7 so that ye are behind in no gift, {want nothing in any gift} and wait for the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ 7 So that ye are not destitute of any gift: waiting for the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ. 7 So that ye come behind in no gift; waiting for the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ: [coming: Gr. revelation]
1:8 8 which also shall confirm you into the end without crime [which also shall confirm you till into the end without crime, or great sin] , in the day of the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. 8 which shall strength you unto the end, that ye may be blameless in the day (of the coming) of our Lord Jesus Christ. 8 Who shall also confirm you unto the end, that ye may be blameless, in the day of our Lord Jesus Christ. 8 Who shall also confirm you to the end, that ye may be blameless in the day of our Lord Jesus Christ.
1:9 9 A true God [Forsooth God is true] , by whom ye be called into the fellowship of his Son Jesus Christ our Lord. 9 [For] God is faithful, by whom ye are called unto the fellowship of his son Jesus Christ our Lord. 9 God is faithful, by whom ye are called unto the fellowship of his Son Jesus Christ our Lord. 9 God is faithful, by whom ye were called to the fellowship of his Son Jesus Christ our Lord.
1:10 10 But, brethren, I beseech you, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye all say the same thing, and that dissensions be not among you [and that schisms, or divisions, dissensions, or discords, be not among you] ; but be ye perfect in the same wit, and in the same knowing. 10 I beseech you brethren in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye all speak one thing, and that there be no dissension among you: but be ye perfect [knit together] in one mind, and one meaning: 10 Now I beseech you, brethren, by the Name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye all speak one thing, and that there be no dissensions among you: but be ye knit together in one mind, and in one judgement. 10 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. [divisions: Gr. schisms]
1:11 11 For, my brethren, it is told to me of them that be at Chloe's, that strives be among you. 11 It is shewed unto me (my brethren) of you by them that are of the house of Cloe, that there is strife among you; 11 For it hath been declared unto me, my brethren, of you by them that are of the house of Chloe, that there are contentions among you. 11 For it hath been declared to me concerning you, my brethren, by them who are of the house of Chloe, that there are contentions among you.
1:12 12 And I say that, that each of you saith, For I am of Paul, and I am of Apollos, and I am of Cephas, but I am of Christ. [Forsooth I say this thing, that each of you saith, Forsooth I am of Paul, forsooth I of Apollos, truly I of Cephas, that is, Peter, forsooth I of Christ.] 12 I speak of that which everyone of you sayth: [And this is it that I mean: how that commonly among you, one sayeth:] I hold of Paul; Another sayth: I hold of Apollo: Another [the third] saith: I hold of Cephas: and another saith [the fourth that] I hold of Christ. 12 Now this I say, that every one of you saith, I am Paul's, and I am Apollos', and I am Cephas', and I am Christ's. 12 Now this I say, that each one of you saith, I am of Paul; and I of Apollos; and I of Cephas; and I of Christ.
1:13 13 Whether Christ is parted? whether Paul was crucified for you, either ye be baptized in the name of Paul [or be ye baptized in the name of Paul] ? 13 Is Christ divided? was Paul crucified for you? other [either] were ye baptised in the name of Paul? 13 Is Christ divided? was Paul crucified for you? either were ye baptized into the name of Paul? 13 Is Christ divided? was Paul crucified for you? or were ye baptized in the name of Paul?
1:14 14 I do thankings to my God [I do thankings to God] , that I baptized none of you, but Crispus and Gaius; 14 I thank God that I christened {have baptised} none of you, but Crispus and Gaius, 14 I thank God, that I baptized none of you, but Crispus, and Gaius, 14 I thank God that I baptized none of you, but Crispus and Gaius;
1:15 15 lest any man say, that ye be baptized in my name. 15 lest any should say that I in mine own name had baptised. 15 Lest any should say, that I had baptized into mine own name. 15 Lest any should say that I had baptized in my own name.
1:16 16 And I baptized also the house of Stephanas, but I know not, that I baptized any other [if I baptized any other] . 16 I baptised also the house of Stephana. Furthermore know I not whether I baptised any man (of you) or no. 16 I baptized also the household of Stephanas: furthermore know I not, whether I baptized any other. 16 And I baptized also the household of Stephanas: besides, I know not whether I baptized any other.
1:17 17 For Christ sent me not to baptize, but to preach the gospel; not in wisdom of word, that the cross of Christ be not voided away. 17 For Christ sent me not to baptise, but to preach the gospel, [gospell] not with wisdom of words, lest the cross of Christ should have been made of none effect. 17 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. 17 For Christ hath not sent me to baptize, but to preach the gospel: not with wisdom of words, lest the cross of Christ should be made of no effect. [words: or, speech]
1:18 18 For the word of the cross is folly to them that perish; but to them that be made safe, that is to say, to us, it is the virtue of God. 18 For the preaching {word} of the cross is to them that perish foolishness: but unto us which are saved, it is the power of God. 18 For that [the] preaching of the cross is to them that perish, foolishness: but unto us, which are saved, it is the power of God. 18 For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but to us who are saved it is the power of God.
1:19 19 For it is written, I shall destroy the wisdom of wise men [I shall lose the wisdom of wise men] , and I shall reprove the prudence of prudent men. 19 For it is written: I will destroy the wisdom of the wise and will cast away the understanding of the prudent. 19 For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will cast away the understanding of the prudent. 19 For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent.
1:20 20 Where is the wise man? where is the wise lawyer [where is the writer, or man of law] ? where is the purchaser of this world? Whether God hath not made the wisdom of this world fond [Whether God hath not made the wisdom of this world foolish] ? 20 Where is the wise man? where is the scribe? where is the searcher {disputers} of this world? Hath not God made the wisdom of this world foolishness? 20 Where is the wise? Where is the Scribe? Where is the disputer of this world? Hath not God made the wisdom of this world foolishness? 20 Where is the wise? where is the scribe? where is the disputer of this world? hath not God made foolish the wisdom of this world?
1:21 21 For the world in wisdom of God knew not God by wisdom [For why for in the wisdom of God the world knew not God by wisdom] , it pleased to God, by [the] folly of preaching, to make them safe that believed. 21 For when the world thorow wisdom knew not God, in the wisdom of God: it pleased God thorow foolishness of preaching to save them that believe. 21 For seeing the world by wisdom knew not God in the wisdom of GOD, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe: 21 For when 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.
1:22 22 For Jews seek signs, and Greeks seek wisdom; 22 For the jews require a sign, {tokens} and the greeks seek {ask} after wisdom. 22 Seeing also that the Jews require a sign, and the Grecians seek after wisdom. 22 For the Jews require a sign, and the Greeks seek wisdom:
1:23 23 but we preach Christ crucified, to Jews cause of stumbling [to Jews soothly offence] , and to heathen men folly; 23 But we preach Christ crucified, unto the jews an occasion of falling and unto the greeks foolishness: 23 But we preach Christ crucified: unto the Jews, even a stumblingblock, and unto the Grecians, foolishness: 23 But we preach Christ crucified, to the Jews a stumblingblock, and to the Greeks foolishness;
1:24 24 but to those Jews and Greeks that be called, we preach Christ the virtue of God and the wisdom of God. [forsooth to them called, Jews and Greeks, Christ the virtue of God, and the wisdom of God.] 24 but unto them which are called both of jews and greeks we preach Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God. 24 But unto them which are called, both of the Jews and Grecians, we preach Christ, the power of God, and the wisdom of God. 24 But to them who are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God.
1:25 25 For that that is folly thing of God, is wiser than men; and that that is the feeble thing of God [and that that is the sick thing, or frail, of God] , is stronger than men. 25 For Godly foolishness [the foolishness of God] is wiser than men: And Godly weakness [the weakness of God] is stronger than are men. 25 For the foolishness of God is wiser than men, and the weakness of God is stronger than men. 25 Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the weakness of God is stronger than men.
1:26 26 But, brethren, see ye your calling [Forsooth, see ye your calling, brethren] ; for not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble. 26 Brethren look on your calling how that not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many of high degree are called: 26 For brethren, you see your calling, how that not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble are called. 26 For ye see your calling, brethren, that not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called:
1:27 27 But God chose those things that be fond of the world, to confound wise men; and God chose the feeble things of the world, to confound the strong things; [But God chose those things that be foolish of the world, that he confound wise men; and God chose the sick things, or frail, of the world, that he confound the strong things;] 27 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 things which are mighty. 27 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 mighty things, 27 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;
1:28 28 and God chose the unnoble things and despisable things of the world, and those things that be not, to destroy those things that be; 28 And vile things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen yea and things of no reputation, for to bring to nought things of reputation, 28 And vile things of the world and things which are despised, hath God chosen, and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are, 28 And base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are:
1:29 29 that each man have not glory in his sight. [that each flesh, or man, glory not in his sight.] 29 that no flesh should rejoice in his presence. 29 That no flesh should rejoice in his presence. 29 That no flesh should glory in his presence.
1:30 30 But of him ye be in Christ Jesus, which is made of God to us wisdom, and rightwiseness, and holiness, and again-buying; 30 And unto him pertain ye, in Christ Jesu, which of God is made unto us wisdom, and also righteousness, and sanctifying, and redemption. 30 But ye are of him in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption, 30 But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who from God is made to us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption:
1:31 31 that, as it is written, He that glorieth, have glory in the Lord [He that glorieth, glory in the Lord] . 31 That according as it is written: he which rejoiceth, should rejoice in the Lord. 31 That, according as it is written, He that rejoiceth, let him rejoice in the Lord. 31 That, according as it is written, He that glorieth, let him glory in the Lord.
2:1 1 And I, brethren, when I came to you, came not in the highness of word, either of wisdom [or of wisdom] , telling to you the witnessing of Christ. 1 And I brethren when I came to you, came not in gloriousness of {in hye words} words or of wisdom, shewing unto you the testimony of God. {preaching of Christ} 1 And I, brethren, when I came to you, came not with excellency of words, or of wisdom, shewing unto you the testimony of God. 1 And I, brethren, when I came to you, came not with excellency of speech or of wisdom, declaring to you the testimony of God.
2:2 2 For I deemed not [in] me to know any thing among you, but Christ Jesus, and him crucified. 2 Neither shewed I myself that I knew any thing among you save {save onely} Jesus Christ, even the same that was crucified. 2 For I esteemed not to know anything among you, save Jesus Christ, and him crucified. 2 For I determined not to know any thing among you, except Jesus Christ, and him crucified.
2:3 3 And I in frailty, and dread, and in much trembling, was among you; [And I in sickness, and dread, and much trembling, was with you;] 3 And I was among you in weakness, and in fear, and in much trembling. 3 And I was among you in weakness, and in fear, and in much trembling. 3 And I was with you in weakness, and in fear, and in much trembling.
2:4 4 and my word and my preaching was not in subtly stirring words of man's wisdom, but in showing of Spirit and of virtue; 4 And my words, and my preaching were not with enticing words of man's wisdom: but in shewing of the spirit and of power, 4 Neither stood my word, and my preaching in the enticing speech of man's wisdom, but in plain evidence of the Spirit and of power, 4 And my speech and my preaching was not with enticing words of man's wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power: [enticing: or, persuasible]
2:5 5 that your faith be not in the wisdom of men, but in the virtue of God. 5 that your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men: but in the power of God. 5 That your faith should not be in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God. 5 That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God. [stand: Gr. be]
2:6 6 For we speak wisdom among perfect men, but not wisdom of this world, neither of princes of this world, that be destroyed; 6 We speak that which [That we speak of] is wisdom among them that are perfect: not the wisdom of this world neither of the rulers of this world (which goeth to nought,) 6 And we speak wisdom among them that are perfect: not the wisdom of this world, neither of the princes of this world, which come to nought. 6 However we speak wisdom among them that are perfect: yet not the wisdom of this world, nor of the princes of this world, that come to nought:
2:7 7 but we speak the wisdom of God in mystery, which wisdom is hid; which wisdom God before-ordained before worlds into our glory [the which God before-ordained before worlds into our glory] , 7 but we speak the wisdom of God, which is in secret and lieth hid, which God ordained before the world unto our glory: 7 But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hid wisdom, which God had determined before the world, unto our glory. 7 But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world to our glory:
2:8 8 which none of the princes of this world knew; for if they had known, they should never have crucified the Lord of glory. 8 which wisdom none of the rulers of the world knew. For had they known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory: 8 Which none of the princes of this world hath known: for had they known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory. 8 Which none of the princes of this world knew: for had they known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory.
2:9 9 But as it is written, That eye saw not, nor ear heard, neither it ascended into the heart of man, what things God arrayed to them that love him [what things God made ready before to them that love him] ; 9 but as it is written: The eye hath not seen, and the ear hath not heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him. 9 But as it is written, The things which eye hath not seen, neither ear hath heard, neither came into man's heart, are, which God hath prepared for them that love him. 9 But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.
2:10 10 but God showed to us by his Spirit. For why the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God. 10 But God hath opened them unto us by his spirit. For the spirit searcheth all things, yea the bottom of God's [Goddes] secrets. {even the deepness of the God head} 10 But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God. 10 But God hath revealed them to us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, even, the deep things of God.
2:11 11 And who of men knoweth, what things be of man, but the spirit of man that is in him? So [and] what things be of God, no man knoweth, but the Spirit of God. 11 For what man knoweth the things of a man: save the spirit of a man which is within him? Even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the spirit of God. 11 For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of a man, which is in him? even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the spirit of God. 11 For what man knoweth the things of a man, except the spirit of man which is in him? even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God.
2:12 12 And we have not received the spirit of this world, but the Spirit that is of God, that we know what things be given to us of God. 12 And we have not received the spirit of the world: but the spirit which cometh of God, for to know the things that are given to us of God, 12 Now we have received not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit, which is of God, that we might know the things that are given to us of God. 12 Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God; that we may know the things that are freely given to us by God.
2:13 13 Which things we speak also, not in wise words of man's wisdom, but in the doctrine of the Spirit, and make a likeness of spiritual things to ghostly men. [The which things we speak, not in taught words of manís wisdom, but in doctrine of the Spirit, comparisoning spiritual things to ghostly men.] 13 which things also we speak, not in the cunning words of man's wisdom, but with the cunning words of the holy ghost, making spiritual comparisons of spiritual things. {and judge spiritual matters spiritually} 13 Which things also we speak, not in the words which man's wisdom teacheth, but which the holy Ghost teacheth, comparing spiritual things with spiritual things. 13 Which things also we speak, not in the words which man's wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Spirit teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual.
2:14 14 For a beastly man perceiveth not those things that be of the Spirit of God; for it is folly to him, and he may not understand, for it is examined ghostly [for it is examined, or assayed, ghostly] . 14 For the natural man perceiveth not the things of the spirit of God: For they are but foolishness unto him. Neither can he perceive them because he is spiritually examined: {can not perceive it: for it must be spiritually discerned} 14 But the natural man perceiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned. 14 But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness to him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.
2:15 15 But a spiritual man deemeth all things, and he is deemed of no man. 15 but he that is spiritual discusseth all things: yet he himself is judged of no man. 15 But he that is spiritual, discerneth all things: yet he himself is judged of no man. 15 But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged by no man. [judgeth: or, discerneth] [judged: or, discerned]
2:16 16 As it is written, And who knew the wit of the Lord, or who taught him? And we have the wit of Christ. 16 For who knoweth the mind of the Lord, other who shall inform him? but we understand the mind of Christ. 16 For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he might instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ. 16 For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ. [may: Gr. shall]
3:1 1 And I, brethren, might not speak to you as to spiritual men, but as to fleshly men [but as to fleshly] ; as to little children in Christ, 1 And I could not speak unto you brethren as unto spiritual: but as unto carnal, even as it were unto babes in Christ. 1 And I could not speak unto you, brethren, as unto spiritual men, but as unto carnal, even as unto babes in Christ. 1 And I, brethren, could not speak to you as to spiritual, but as to carnal, even as to babes in Christ.
3:2 2 I gave to you milk to drink, not meat; for ye might not yet understand, neither ye be able to now [but neither now soothly ye be able] , 2 I gave you milk to drink and not meat. For ye then were not strong, no neither yet are strong. 2 I gave you milk to drink, and not meat: for ye were not yet able to bear it, neither yet now are ye able. 2 I have fed you with milk, and not with meat: for until now ye were not able to bear it, neither yet now are ye able.
3:3 3 for yet ye be fleshly. For while envy and strife is among you, whether ye be not fleshly, and ye go after man? 3 For ye are yet carnal. As long verily as there is among you envying, strife and dissension: are ye not carnal, and walk after the manner of men? 3 For ye are yet carnal: for whereas there is among you envying, and strife, and divisions, are ye not carnal, and walk as men? 3 For ye are yet carnal: for though there is among you envying, and strife, and divisions, are ye not carnal, and walk as men? [divisions: or, factions] [as men: Gr. according to man?]
3:4 4 For when some saith, I am of Paul, and another, But I am of Apollos [another forsooth, I am of Apollos] , whether ye be not [fleshly] men? 4 As long as one saith: I hold of Paul, and another, I am of Apollo, are ye not carnal? 4 For when one saith, I am Paul's, and another, I am Apollos', are ye not carnal? 4 For while one saith, I am of Paul; and another, I am of Apollos; are ye not carnal?
3:5 5 What therefore is Apollos, and what Paul? They be ministers of him, to whom ye have believed; and to each man as God hath given. 5 What is Paul? what thing is Apollo? but [Only] ministers [are they] by whom ye believed even as the Lord gave every man grace. 5 Who is Paul then? and who is Apollos, but the ministers by whom ye believed, and as the Lord gave to every man? 5 Who then is Paul, and who is Apollos, but ministers by whom ye believed, even as the Lord gave to every man?
3:6 6 I planted, Apollos moisted [Apollos watered, or moisted] , but God gave increasing. 6 I have planted: Apollo watered: but God gave increase. 6 I have planted, Apollos watered, but God gave the increase. 6 I have planted, Apollos watered; but God hath given the increase.
3:7 7 Therefore [And so] neither he that planteth is any thing, neither he that moisteth, but God that giveth increasing. 7 So then, neither is he that planteth any thing, neither he that watereth: but God which gave the increase. 7 So then, neither is he that planteth anything, neither he that watereth, but God that giveth the increase. 7 So then neither is he that planteth any thing, neither he that watereth; but God that giveth the increase.
3:8 8 And he that planteth, and he that moisteth, be one; and each shall take his own meed, after his travail. 8 He that planteth, and he that watereth, are neither better than the other. Every man yet shall receive his reward according to his labour. 8 And he that planteth, and he that watereth, are one, and every man shall receive his wages, according to his labor. 8 Now he that planteth and he that watereth are one: and every man shall receive his own reward according to his own labour.
3:9 9 For we be the helpers of God; ye be the earth-tilling of God, ye be the building of God. 9 We are God's [goddis] laborers: ye are God's [goddis] husbandry, ye are God's [goddis] building. 9 For we together are God's laborers: ye are God's husbandry, and God's building. 9 For we are labourers together with God: ye are God's field, ye are God's building. [husbandry: or, tillage]
3:10 10 After the grace of God that is given to me, as a wise master carpenter I setted the foundament [I set the foundament] ; and another buildeth above. But each man see, how he buildeth above [how and what things he buildeth upon] . 10 According to the grace of God given unto me, as a wise builder have I laid the foundation, [And] another hath built thereon: but let every man take heed how he buildeth upon. 10 According to the grace of God given to me, as a skilful master builder, I have laid the foundation, and another buildeth thereon: but let every man take heed how he buildeth upon it. 10 According to the grace of God which is given to me, as a wise masterbuilder, I have laid the foundation, and another buildeth upon it. But let every man take heed how he buildeth upon it.
3:11 11 For no man may set another foundament, except that that is set [besides that that is set] , which is Christ Jesus. 11 For other foundation can no man lay, than that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ. 11 For other foundation can no man lay, than that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ. 11 For other foundation can no man lay than that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ.
3:12 12 For if any man buildeth over this foundament, gold, silver, precious stones, sticks, hay, or stubble, [Forsooth if any man build upon this foundament, gold, silver, precious stones, sticks, hay, stubble,] 12 If any man build on this foundation, gold, silver, precious stones, timber, hay, or stubble: 12 And if any man build on this foundation, gold, silver, precious stones, timber, hay, or stubble, 12 Now if any man buildeth upon this foundation gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, stubble;
3:13 13 every man's work shall be open; for the day of the Lord shall declare, for it shall be showed in fire; the fire shall prove the work of each man, what manner work it is [what manner it is] . 13 every man's work shall appear. For the day shall declare it, and it shall be shewed in fire, and the fire shall try every man's work what it is. 13 Every man's work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by the fire: and the fire shall try every man's work of what sort it is. 13 Every man's work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man's work of what sort it is.

3:15 15 If any man's work burn, he shall suffer harm [If any manís work shall burn, he shall suffer impairing] ; but he shall be safe, so nevertheless as by fire. 15 If any man's work burn, he shall suffer loss: but he shall be safe himself: nevertheless yet as it were thorow fire. 15 If any man's work burn, he shall lose, but he shall be saved [safe] himself: nevertheless yet as it were by the fire. 15 If any man's work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire.

3:17 17 And if any [man] defouleth the temple of God, God shall destroy him [God shall lose him] ; for the temple of God is holy, which ye be. 17 If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy.

3:19 19 For the wisdom of this world is folly with God; for it is written, I shall catch wise men in their fell wisdom [I shall catch wise men in their fell wisdom, or subtle guile] ; 19 For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written: he compasseth the wise in their craftiness. 19 For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God: for it is written, He catcheth the wise in their own craftiness. 19 For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God.

3:20 20 and again, The Lord knoweth the thoughts of wise men, for those be vain [for they be vain] . 20 And again, God knoweth the thoughts of the wise that they be vain. 20 And again, The Lord knoweth that the thoughts of the wise be vain. 20 And again, The Lord knoweth the thoughts of the wise, that they are vain.
3:21 21 Therefore no man have glory in men [And so no man glory in men] . For all things be yours, 21 Therefore let no man rejoice in men. For all things are yours, 21 Therefore let no man rejoice in men: for all things are yours. 21 Therefore let no man glory in men. For all things are yours;
3:22 22 either Paul, either Apollos, either Cephas, either the world, either life, either death, either things present, either things to coming [either things to come] ; for all things be yours, 22 whether it be Paul, other [either] Apollo, either Cephas: whether it be the world, either [or] life, either death, whether they be present things or things to come: all are yours, 22 Whether it be Paul, or Apollos, or Cephas, or the world, or life, or death: whether they be things present, or things to come, even all are yours, 22 Whether Paul, or Apollos, or Cephas, or the world, or life, or death, or things present, or things to come; all are yours;

4:1 1 So a man guess us [So a man guess, or deem, us] , as ministers of Christ, and dispensers of the mysteries of God. 1 Let men this wise esteem us, even as the ministers of Christ, and disposers {stewards} of the secrets of God. 1 Let a man so think of us, as of the ministers of Christ, and disposers of the secrets of God: 1 Let a man so account of us, as of the ministers of Christ, and stewards of the mysteries of God.
4:2 2 Now it is sought here among the dispensers, that a man be found true. 2 Furthermore it is required of the disposers {stewards} that they be found faithful. 2 And as for the rest, it is required of the disposers, that every man be found faithful. 2 Moreover it is required in stewards, that a man be found faithful.
4:3 3 And to me it is for the least thing, that I be deemed of you, or of man's day; but neither I deem myself. 3 With me is it but a very small thing, that I should be judged of you, either of man's day. No I judge not mine own self. 3 As touching me, I pass very little to be judged of you, or of man's judgement: no, I judge not mine own self. 3 But with me it is a very small thing that I should be judged by you, or by man's judgment: yea, I judge not my own self. [judgment: Gr. day]
4:4 4 For I am nothing over-trusting to myself, but not in this thing I am justified [Soothly I am nothing guilty to myself, but not in this thing am I justified] ; for he that deemeth me, is the Lord. 4 I know nought by myself: yet am I not thereby justified. It is the Lord that judgeth me. 4 For I know nothing by myself, yet am I not thereby justified: but he that judgeth me, is the Lord. 4 For I know nothing against myself; yet am I not hereby justified: but he that judgeth me is the Lord. [know: or, I am not conscious of any fault]
4:5 5 Therefore do not ye deem before the time, till that the Lord come, which shall lighten [alighten] the hid things of darknesses, and shall show the counsels of hearts; and then praising shall be to each man of God. 5 Therefore judge nothing before the time, until the Lord come, which will lighten things that are hid in darkness: and open the counsels of the hearts. And then shall every man have praise of God. 5 Therefore judge nothing before the time, until the Lord come, who will lighten things that are hid in darkness, and make the counsels of the hearts manifest: and then shall every man have praise of God. 5 Therefore judge nothing before the time, until the Lord shall come, who will both bring to light the hidden things of darkness, and will reveal the counsels of the hearts: and then shall every man have praise from God.
4:6 6 And, brethren, I have transfigured these things into me and into Apollos, for you; that in us ye learn, lest over that it is written, one against another be blown with pride for another. [+Soothly, brethren, this thing I have transfigured into me and into Apollos for you; that in us ye learn, lest over that that is written, one against another be in-blown with pride for another man.] 6 These things brethren I have described in mine own person, and Apollos: for your sakes, that ye might learn by us that no man count of himself beyond that which is above written: that one swell not against another for any man's cause. 6 Now these things, brethren, I have figuratively applied unto mine own self and Apollos, for your sakes, that ye might learn by us, that no man presume above that which is written, that one swell not against another for any man's cause. 6 And these things, brethren, I have in a figure transferred to myself and to Apollos for your sakes; that ye may learn in us not to think of men above that which is written, that no one of you on account of one may be puffed up against another.
4:7 7 Who deemeth thee? And what hast thou, that thou hast not received? And if thou hast received, what gloriest thou, as thou haddest not received? 7 For who preferreth thee? What hast thou, that thou hast not received? if thou have received it: why rejoicest {boastest} thou as though thou hadst [haddest] not received it? 7 For who separateth thee? and what hast thou, that thou hast not received? if thou hast received it, why rejoicest thou, as though thou hadst not received it? 7 For who maketh thee to differ from another? and what hast thou that thou didst not receive? now if thou didst receive it, why dost thou glory, as if thou hadst not received it? [maketh...: Gr. distinguisheth thee]
4:8 8 Now ye be filled [Now ye be full-filled] , now ye be made rich; ye reign without us; and I would that ye reign, that also we reign with you. 8 Now ye are full: now ye are made rich: ye reign as kings without us: and I would to God ye did reign, that we might reign with you. 8 Now ye are full: now ye are made rich: ye reign as kings without us, and would to God ye did reign, that we also might reign with you. 8 Now ye are full, now ye are rich, ye have reigned as kings without us: and I wish ye did reign, that we also might reign with you.
4:9 9 And I guess, that God showed us the last apostles, as those that be sent to the death [Soothly I ween, that God showed us the last apostles, as made ready to death] ; for we be made a spectacle to the world, and to angels, and to men. 9 Me thinketh that God hath shewed [set forth] us which are apostles, for the hindmost [lowest] of all, as it were men appointed to death. For we are a gazingstock unto the world, and to the angels, and to men, 9 For I think that God hath set forth us the last Apostles, as men appointed to death: for we are made a gazingstock unto the world, and to the Angels, and to men. 9 For I think that God hath set forth us the apostles last, as it were appointed to death: for we are made a spectacle to the world, and to angels, and to men. [spectacle: Gr. theatre]
4:10 10 We fools for Christ, but ye prudent in Christ; we frail [we sick] , but ye strong; ye noble, but we unnoble. 10 we are fools for Christ's [Christes] sake, and ye are wise thorow Christ: we are weak, and ye are strong. Ye are honorable, and we are despised. 10 We are fools for Christ's sake, and ye are wise in Christ: we are weak, and ye are strong: ye are honorable, and we are despised. 10 We are fools for Christ's sake, but ye are wise in Christ; we are weak, but ye are strong; ye are honourable, but we are despised.
4:11 11 Till into this hour we hunger, and thirst, and be naked, and be smitten with buffets, and we be unstable [and we be unstable, moving from place to place] , 11 Even unto this day we hunger and thirst, and are naked, and are buffeted with fists, and have no certain dwelling place, 11 Unto this hour we both hunger, and thirst, and are naked, and are buffeted, and have no certain dwelling place, 11 Even to this present hour we both hunger, and thirst, and are naked, and are buffeted, and have no certain dwellingplace;
4:12 12 and we travail working with our hands; we be cursed, and we bless; we suffer persecution, and we abide long [and we sustain, or abide long] ; 12 and labour working with our own hands. We are reviled, and yet we bless. We are persecuted, and suffer it. 12 And labor, working with our own hands: we are reviled, and yet we bless: we are persecuted, and suffer it. 12 And labour, working with our own hands: being reviled, we bless; being persecuted, we endure it:
4:13 13 we be blasphemed, and we beseech; as cleansings of this world we be made the out-casting [we be made the parings, or out-castings,] of all things till yet. 13 We are evil spoken of, and we pray. We are made as it were the filthiness {become as it were very outsweepings} of the world, the offscouring of all things, even unto this time. 13 We are evil spoken of, and we pray: we are made as the filth of the world, the offscouring of all things, unto this time. 13 Being defamed, we entreat: we are made as the filth of the world, the offscouring of all things to this day.
4:14 14 I write not these things, that I confound you, but I warn you as my most dear-worthy sons. 14 I write not these things to shame you: but as my beloved sons {dear children} I warn you. 14 I write not these things to shame you, but as my beloved children I admonish you. 14 I write not these things to shame you, but as my beloved sons I warn you.
4:15 15 For why if ye have ten thousand of under-masters in Christ, but not many fathers; for in Christ Jesus I have engendered you by the gospel [for why in Christ Jesus I have gendered you by the gospel] . 15 For though ye have ten thousand instructors in Christ: yet have ye not many fathers. In Christ Jesu, I have begotten you thorow the gospel. [gospell] 15 For though ye have ten thousand instructors in Christ, yet have ye not many fathers: for in Christ Jesus I have begotten you through the Gospel. 15 For though ye have ten thousand instructors in Christ, yet have ye not many fathers: for in Christ Jesus I have begotten you through the gospel.
4:16 16 Therefore, brethren, I pray you [Therefore I pray you] , be ye followers of me, as I of Christ. 16 Wherefore I desire {exhort} you to counterfeit [follow] me. (as I follow Christ) 16 Wherefore, I pray you, be ye followers of me. 16 Therefore I beseech you, be ye followers of me.

4:18 18 As though I should not come to you, so some be blown with pride [so some be in-blown with pride] ; 18 Some swell {are puft up} as though I would come no more at you: 18 Some are puffed up as though I would not come unto [to] you. 18 Now some are puffed up, as though I would not come to you.
4:19 19 but I shall come to you soon, if God will; and I shall know not the word of them that be blown with pride [that be in-blown with pride] , but the virtue. 19 but I will come to you shortly, if God will, and will know, not the words of them which swell, {that are puft up} but the power. 19 But I will come to you shortly, if the Lord will, and will know, not the words [speech] of them which are puffed up, but the power. 19 But I will come to you shortly, if the Lord will, and will know, not the speech of them who are puffed up, but the power.

4:21 21 What will ye? Shall I come to you in a rod, or in charity, and in a spirit of mildness? 21 What will ye?

5:1 1 Yet all manner of fornication is heard among you, and such fornication, which is not among heathen men, so that some man have the wife of his father [so that one man have the wife of his father] . 1 There goeth a common saying {report} that there is fornication {whoredom} among you, and such fornication {whoredom} as is not once named among the gentiles: {heathen} that one should have his father's wife. 1 It is heard certainly that there is fornication among you: and such fornication as is not once named among the Gentiles, that one should have his father's wife. 1 It is reported commonly that there is immorality among you, and such immorality as is not so much as named among the Gentiles, that one should have his father's wife.
5:2 2 And ye be swollen with pride [And ye be blown with pride] , and not more had wailing, that he that did this work, be taken away from the middle of you. 2 And ye swell {are puft up} and have not rather sorrowed, that he which hath done this deed might be put from among you. 2 And ye are puffed up and have not rather sorrowed, that he which hath done this deed, might be put from among you. 2 And ye are puffed up, and have not rather mourned, that he who hath done this deed might be taken away from among you.

5:6 6 Your glorying is not good. Know ye not, that a little sourdough impaireth all the gobbet [that a little sourdough corrupteth all the gobbet] ? 6 Your rejoicing is not good. Know ye not that a little leaven sowereth the whole lump of dough? 6 Your rejoicing is not good: know ye not that a little leaven, leaveneth the whole lump? 6 Your boasting is not good. Know ye not that a little leaven leaveneth the whole lump?
5:7 7 Cleanse ye out the old sourdough, that ye be new sprinkling together, as ye be therf. For Christ offered is our pask. [Cleanse ye out old sourdough, that ye be new sprinkling together, as ye be therf, or without souring. Forsooth Christ is offered our pask.] 7 Purge therefore the old leaven, that ye may be new dough as ye are sweet bread. For Christ our ester lamb is offered up for us. 7 Purge out therefore the old leaven, that ye may be a new lump, as ye are unleavened: for Christ our Passover is sacrificed for us. 7 Therefore purge out the old leaven, that ye may be a new lump, as ye are unleavened. For even Christ our passover is sacrificed for us: [is sacrificed; or, is slain]
5:8 8 Therefore eat we, not in old sourdough, neither in sourdough of malice and waywardness, but in therf things of clearness and of truth [of clearness and truth] . 8 Therefore let us keep holyday, not with old leaven, neither with the leaven of maliciousness and wickedness but with the sweet bread of pureness and truth. 8 Therefore let us keep the feast, not with old leaven, neither in the leaven of maliciousness and wickedness: but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth. 8 Therefore let us keep the feast, not with old leaven, neither with the leaven of malice and wickedness; but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.

5:9 9 I wrote to you in an epistle, that ye be not mixed with lechers, [I wrote to you in an epistle, that ye be not mingled, or commune not, with lechers,] 9 I wrote unto you in the [an] pistel {Epistle} that ye should not company with fornicators. {have nothing to do with whoremongers} 9 I wrote unto you in an epistle, that ye should not company together with fornicators, 9 I wrote to you in my epistle not to associate with immoral people:
5:10 10 not with lechers of this world, nor with covetous men, nor raveners, nor with men serving to maumets [+soothly not with lechers of this world, or with covetous men, or raveners, or with men serving to idols] , else ye should have gone out of this world. 10 And I meant not at all of the fornicators {whoremongers} of this world, either of the covetous, or of extortioners, either of [the] idolaters: {that worhsip images} for then must ye needs have gone out of the world: 10 And not altogether with the fornicators of this world, or with the covetous, or with extortioners, or with idolaters: for then ye must go out of the world. 10 Yet not altogether with immoral people of this world, or with the covetous, or extortioners, or with idolaters; for then ye must needs go out of the world.
5:11 11 But now I have written to you, that ye be not mixed [Now soothly I wrote to you, to be not mingled, or commune not with such] . If he that is named a brother among you, and is a lecher, or covetous, or serving to idols, or a curser, or full of drunkenness, or a ravener, to take no meat with such [with such neither to take meat] . 11 but now I have written [write] unto you that ye company not together. If any that is called a brother, be a fornicator, or covetous, or a worshipper of images, either a railer, either a drunkard, or an extortioner: with him that is such see [that] ye eat not. 11 But now I have written unto you, that ye company not together: if any that is called a brother, be a fornicator, or covetous, or an idolater, or a railer, or a drunkard, or an extortioner, with such one eat not. 11 But now I have written to you not to keep company, if any man that is called a brother is an immoral person, or covetous, or an idolater, or a railer, or a drunkard, or an extortioner; with such a person no not to eat.
5:12 12 For what is it to me to deem of them that be withoutforth? Whether ye deem not of things that be withinforth? [Forsooth what to me to deem of them that be withoutforth. Whether ye deem not of them that be withinforth?] 12 For what have I to do to judge them which are without? Do ye not judge them that are within? 12 For what have I to do, to judge them also which are without? do ye not judge them that are within? 12 For what have I to do to judge them also that are outside the church? do ye not judge them that are within?
5:13 13 For God shall deem them that be withoutforth. Do ye away evil from yourselves. 13 Them that are without, God shall judge. Put away from among you that evil person. 13 But God judgeth them that are without. Put away therefore from among yourselves that wicked man. 13 But them that are outside God judgeth. Therefore put away from among yourselves that wicked person.
6:1 1 Dare any of you that hath a cause against another, be deemed at wicked men, and not at holy men? [Dare any of you, having a cause against another, be deemed at wicked men, and not at saints, or holy men?] 1 How dare one of you having business with another, go to law under the wicked? and not rather under the saints? 1 Dare any of you, having business against another, be judged under the unjust, and not under the Saints? 1 Dare any of you, having a matter against another, go to law before the unjust, and not before the saints?
6:2 2 Whether ye know not, that saints shall deem this world? And if the world shall be deemed by you, be ye unworthy to deem the least things? 2 Do ye not know that the saints shall judge the world? If the world shall be judged by {off} you: are ye not good enough to judge small trifles. {matters} 2 Do ye not know, that the Saints shall judge the world? If the world then shall be judged by you, are ye unworthy to judge the smallest matters? 2 Do ye not know that the saints shall judge the world? and if the world shall be judged by you, are ye unworthy to judge the smallest matters?
6:3 3 Know ye not, that we shall deem angels? how much more worldly things? 3 Know ye not how that we shall judge the angels? How much more may we judge things that pertain to the life? {temporal life?} 3 Know ye not that we shall judge the Angels? how much more, things that pertain to this life? 3 Know ye not that we shall judge angels? how much more things that pertain to this life?
6:4 4 Therefore if ye have worldly dooms, ordain ye those contemptible men [ordain ye those contemptible men, or of little reputation] , that be in the church, to deem. 4 If ye have judgements of worldly {temporal} matters, take them which are despised in the congregation, and make them judges. 4 If then ye have judgements of things pertaining to this life, set up them which are least esteemed in the Church. 4 If then ye have judgments of things pertaining to this life, set them to judge who are least esteemed in the church.
6:5 5 I say to make you ashamed. So there is not any wise man, that may deem betwixt a brother and his brother; [I say to your shame. So there is not any wise man, that may deem between a brother and his brother;] 5 This I say to your shame. Is there utterly no wise man among you? what not one at all? that can judge between brother and brother? 5 I speak it to your shame. Is it so that there is not a wise man among you? [you,] no not one, that can judge between his brethren? 5 I speak to your shame. Is it so, that there is not a wise man among you? no, not one that shall be able to judge between his brethren?
6:6 6 but brother with brother striveth in doom, and that among unfaithful men. 6 but one brother goeth to law with another: and that under {before} the unbelievers? 6 But a brother goeth to law with a brother, and that under the infidels. 6 But brother goeth to law with brother, and that before unbelievers.
6:7 7 And now trespass is always among you [Now forsooth trespass is all-gates in you] , for ye have dooms among you. Why rather take ye not wrong? why rather suffer ye not deceit [why not more suffer ye fraud, or deceit] ? 7 Now therefore there is utterly a fault among you, because ye go to law one with another. Why rather suffer ye not wrong? why rather suffer ye not yourselves to be robbed? {defrauded} 7 Now therefore there is altogether infirmity in you, in that [is utterly a fault among you, because] ye go to law one with another: why rather suffer ye not wrong? why rather sustain ye not harm? [wrong?] 7 Now therefore there is utterly a fault among you, because ye go to law one with another. Why do ye not rather take wrong? why do ye not rather allow yourselves to be defrauded?
6:8 8 But also ye do wrong, and do fraud [and defraud] , and that to brethren. 8 Nay ye yourselves do wrong, and rob: {defraud} and that the brethren. 8 Nay, ye yourselves do wrong, and do harm, and that to your brethren. 8 But, ye do wrong, and defraud, and that your brethren.
6:9 9 Whether ye know not, that wicked men shall not wield the kingdom of God? Do not ye err; neither lechers, neither men that serve maumets [neither men serving to idols] , neither adulterers, neither lechers against kind, neither they that do lechery with men, 9 Do ye not remember how that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived. For neither fornicators, {breakers of wedlock} neither worshippers of images, neither whoremongers, neither weaklings, neither abusers of themselves with mankind, 9 Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor wantons, nor buggers, [buggerers,] 9 Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind,
6:10 10 neither thieves, neither avaricious men [neither covetous men, or niggards] , neither men full of drunkenness, neither cursers, neither raveners, shall wield the kingdom of God. 10 neither thieves, neither the covetous, neither drunkards, neither cursed speakers, neither pillers, {extortioners} shall inherit the kingdom of God. 10 Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor railers, nor extortioners shall inherit the kingdom of God. 10 Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.
6:11 11 And ye were sometime these things [And these things ye were sometime] ; but ye be washed, but ye be hallowed, but ye be justified in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, and in the Spirit of our God. 11 And such were ye verily: but ye are washed: ye are sanctified: ye are justified {made righteous} by the name of the Lord Jesus: And by the spirit of our God. 11 And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the Name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God. 11 And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.
6:12 12 All things be leaveful to me, but not all things be speedful. All things be leaveful to me, but I shall not be brought down under any man's power. 12 All things are lawful unto me: but all things are not profitable. I may do all things: but I will be brought under no man's power. 12 All things are lawful unto me, but all things are not profitable. I may do all things, but I will not be brought under the power of anything. 12 All things are lawful to me, but all things are not expedient: all things are lawful for me, but I will not be brought under the power of any. [expedient: or, profitable]
6:13 13 Meat to the womb, and the womb to meats; and God shall destroy both this and that. And the body not to fornication, but to the Lord, and the Lord to the body. 13 Meats are ordained for the belly, and the belly for meats: but God shall destroy both him [it] and them. Let not the body be applied unto fornication, {whoredom} but unto the Lord, and the Lord unto the body. 13 Meats are ordained for the belly, and the belly for the meats: but God shall destroy both it, and them. Now the body is not for fornication, but for the Lord, and the Lord for the body. 13 Food is for the stomach, and the stomach is for food: but God shall destroy both it and them. Now the body is not for immorality, but for the Lord; and the Lord for the body. [Meats: not flesh only, but food of any kind]
6:14 14 For God raised the Lord, and shall raise us by his virtue. 14 God hath raised up the Lord, and shall raise us up by his power. 14 And God hath also raised up the Lord, and shall raise us up by his power. 14 And God hath both raised up the Lord, and will also raise up us by his own power.
6:15 15 Know ye not, that your bodies be members of Christ? Shall I then take the members of Christ, and shall I make them the members of a whore? God forbid [Far be it] . 15 Other [Ether] remember ye not, that your bodies are the members of Christ? Shall I now take the members of Christe, and make them the members of an harlot? God forbid. 15 Know ye not, that your bodies are the members of Christ? shall I then take the members of Christ, and make them the members of an harlot? God forbid. 15 Know ye not that your bodies are the members of Christ? shall I then take the members of Christ, and make them the members of an harlot? By no means.
6:16 16 Whether ye know not, that he that cleaveth to a whore, is made one body? For he saith, There shall be twain in one flesh [There shall be two in one flesh] . 16 Do ye not understand {Or do ye not know} that he which coupleth himself with an harlot, is become one body? For two (saith he) shall be one flesh: 16 Do ye not know, that he which coupleth himself with an harlot, is one body? for two, saith he, shall be one flesh. 16 What? know ye not that he who is joined to an harlot is one body? for two, saith he, shall be one flesh.
6:17 17 And he that cleaveth to the Lord, is one spirit. 17 but he that is joined {cleaveth} unto the Lord is one spirit. 17 But he that is joined unto the Lord, is one spirit. 17 But he that is joined to the Lord is one spirit.
6:18 18 Flee ye fornication; all sin whatever sin a man doeth [all sin whatever a man shall do] , is without the body; but he that doeth fornication, sinneth against his body. 18 Flee fornication. {whoredom} All sins that a man doth, are without the body. But he that is a fornicator, sinneth against his own body. 18 Flee fornication: every sin that a man doeth, is without the body: but he that committeth fornication, sinneth against his own body. 18 Flee immorality. Every sin that a man doeth is outside the body; but he that committeth immorality sinneth against his own body.
6:19 19 Whether ye know not, that your members be the temple of the Holy Ghost, that is in you, whom ye have of God, and ye be not your own? 19 [Ether] Know ye not how that your bodies are the temple of the holy ghost, which is in you, whom he have of God, and how that ye are not your own? 19 Know ye not, that your body is the temple of the holy Ghost, which is in you, whom ye have of God? and ye are not your own. 19 What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, which ye have from God, and ye are not your own?
6:20 20 For ye be bought with great price. Glorify ye, and bear ye God in your body. 20 For ye are dearly bought. Therefore glorify {Praise} ye God in your bodies and in your spirits, for they are God's. [goddis] 20 For ye are bought for a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit: for they are God's. 20 For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's.
7:1 1 But of those things that ye have written to me, it is good to a man to touch not a woman [it is good to a man for to not touch a woman] . 1 As concerning the things whereof ye wrote unto me: It is good for a man, not to touch a woman. 1 Now concerning the things whereof ye wrote unto me, It were good for a man not to touch a woman. 1 Now concerning the things of which ye wrote to me: It is good for a man not to touch a woman.
7:2 2 But for fornication each man have his own wife, and each woman have her own husband. 2 Nevertheless to avoid fornication, {whoredom} let every man have his wife: and let every woman have her husband. 2 Nevertheless, to avoid fornication, let every man have his wife, and let every woman have her own husband. 2 Nevertheless, to avoid immorality, let every man have his own wife, and let every woman have her own husband.
7:3 3 The husband yield debt to the wife, and also the wife to the husband. 3 Let the man give unto the wife due benevolence. Likewise also the wife unto the man. 3 Let the husband give unto the wife due benevolence, and likewise also the wife unto the husband. 3 Let the husband render to the wife her due benevolence: and likewise also the wife to the husband.
7:4 4 The woman hath not power of her body, but the husband; [also forsooth] and the husband hath not power of his body, but the woman [but the wife] . 4 The wife hath not power over her own body: but the husband: And likewise the man hath not power over his own body: but the wife. 4 The wife hath not the power of her own body, but the husband: and likewise also the husband hath not the power of his own body, but the wife. 4 The wife hath not power of her own body, but the husband: and likewise also the husband hath not power of his own body, but the wife.
7:5 5 Do not ye defraud each to other [Do not defraud together] , but peradventure of consent for a time, that ye give attention to prayer; and again turn again to the same thing, lest Satan tempt you for your uncontinence. 5 Withdraw not your selves one from another except it be with consent for a time, for to give yourselves to fasting and prayer, and afterward come again to the same thing, lest Satan tempt you for your incontinency. 5 Defraud not one another, except it be with consent for a time, that ye may give yourselves to fasting and prayer, and again come together that Satan tempt you not for your incontinency. 5 Defraud ye not one the other, except it be with consent for a time, that ye may give yourselves to fasting and prayer; and come together again, that Satan may not tempt you for your lack of self-control.
7:6 6 But I say this thing as giving leave, not by commandment. [+Forsooth I say this thing by indulgence, not after commandment.] 6 This I say of favour, not of commandment. 6 But I speak this by permission, not by commandment. 6 But I speak this by permission, and not as a commandment.
7:7 7 For I will, that all men be as myself. But each man hath his proper gift of God; one thus, and another thus. 7 For I would that all men were as I my self am: but every man hath his proper gift of God, one after this manner, another after that. 7 For I would that all men were even as I myself am: but every man hath his proper gift of God, one after this manner, and another after that. 7 For I would that all men were as I myself. But every man hath his proper gift from God, one after this manner, and another after that.
7:8 8 But I say to them, that be not wedded, and to widows [and widows] , it is good to them, if they dwell so as I. 8 I say unto the unmarried men, and widows: it is good for them if they abide even as I do: 8 Therefore I say unto the unmarried, and unto the widows, It is good for them if they abide even as I do. 8 I say therefore to the unmarried and widows, It is good for them if they remain even as I.
7:9 9 And if they contain not themselves, be they wedded; for it is better to be wedded, than to be burnt. 9 but and if they cannot abstain, let them marry. For it is better to marry than to burn. 9 But if they can not abstain, let them marry: for it is better to marry than to burn. 9 But if they cannot control themselves, let them marry: for it is better to marry than to burn.
7:10 10 But to them that be joined in matrimony, I command, not I, but the Lord, that the wife depart not from the husband; 10 Unto the married command not I, but the Lord: that the wife separate not herself from the man. 10 And unto the married I command, not I, but the Lord, Let not the wife depart from her husband. 10 And to the married I command, yet not I, but the Lord, Let not the wife depart from her husband:
7:11 11 and that if she departeth, that she dwell unwedded, or be reconciled to her husband; and the husband forsake not the wife. 11 If she separate herself, let her remain unmarried, or be reconciled unto her husband again. And let not the husband put away his wife from him. 11 But and if she depart, let her remain unmarried, or be reconciled unto her husband, and let not the husband put away his wife. 11 But if she shall depart, let her remain unmarried, or be reconciled to her husband: and let not the husband put away his wife.
7:12 12 But to others I say, not the Lord. If any brother hath an unfaithful wife, and she consenteth to dwell with him, leave he her not [If any brother have an unfaithful, or heathen, wife, and she consent for to dwell with him, leave he, or forsake, her not] . 12 To the remnant speak I, and not the Lord: if any brother have a wife that believeth not, if she be content to dwell with him, let him not put her away. 12 But to the remnant I speak, and not the Lord, If any brother have a wife, that believeth not, if she be content to dwell with him, let him not forsake her. 12 But to the rest I speak, not the Lord: If any brother hath a wife that believeth not, and she is pleased to dwell with him, let him not put her away.
7:13 13 And if any woman hath an unfaithful husband [And if the woman hath an husband unfaithful] , and this consenteth to dwell with her, leave she not the husband. 13 And the woman which hath to her husband an infidel, if he consent {unbelieving husband, and he is content} to dwell with her, let her not put him away. 13 And the woman which hath an husband that believeth not, if he be content to dwell with her, let her not forsake him. 13 And the woman who hath an husband that believeth not, and if he is pleased to dwell with her, let her not leave him.
7:14 14 For the unfaithful husband is hallowed by the faithful woman, and the unfaithful woman is hallowed by the faithful husband. Else your children were unclean, but now they be holy. 14 For the unbelieving husband is sanctified by the wife: and the unbelieving wife is sanctified by the husband. Or else were your children unclean: but now are they pure. {holy} 14 For the unbelieving husband is sanctified to [by] the wife, and the unbelieving wife is sanctified to [by] the husband, else were your children unclean: but now are they holy. 14 For the unbelieving husband is sanctified by the wife, and the unbelieving wife is sanctified by the husband: else were your children unclean; but now are they holy.
7:15 15 That if the unfaithful departeth, depart he. For why the brother or sister is not subject to servage in such; for God hath called us in peace. 15 But and if the unbelieving depart, let him depart. A brother or a sister is not in subjection to such. {bond in such cases} God hath called us in peace. 15 But if the unbelieving depart, let him depart: a brother or a sister is not in subjection in such things: but God hath called us in peace. 15 But if the unbelieving departeth, let him depart. A brother or a sister is not under bondage in such cases: but God hath called us to peace. [to peace: Gr. in peace]
7:16 16 And whereof knowest thou, woman, if thou shalt make the man safe; or whereof knowest thou, man, if thou shalt make the woman safe? 16 For how knowest thou o woman, whether thou shalt save thy husband or not? [whether thou shalt save that man or no?] Other how knowest thou o man, whether thou shalt save the wife or not? [whether thou shalt save that woman or no?] 16 For what knowest thou, O wife, whether [whither] thou shalt save thine husband? Or what knowest thou, O man, whether [whither] thou shalt save thy wife? 16 For how knowest thou, O wife, whether thou shalt save thy husband? or how knowest thou, O man, whether thou shalt save thy wife? [how: Gr. what]
7:17 17 But as the Lord hath parted to each, and as God hath called each man, so go he, as I teach in all churches. [+No but as the Lord hath parted to each, as God hath called each man, so go he, and as I teach in all churches.] 17 but even as God hath distributed to every man. As the Lord hath called every person, so let him walk: and so ordain I in all congregations. 17 But as God hath distributed to every man, as the Lord hath called every one, so let him walk: and so ordain I in all Churches. 17 But as God hath distributed to every man, as the Lord hath called every one, so let him walk. And so I ordain in all churches.
7:18 18 A man circumcised is called, bring he not to prepuce. A man is called in prepuce, be he not circumcised. 18 If any man be called being circumcised, let him add nothing thereto. If any be called uncircumcised: let him not be circumcised. 18 Is any man called being circumcised? let him not gather his uncircumcision: is any called uncircumcised? let him not be circumcised. 18 Is any man called being circumcised? let him not become uncircumcised. Is any called in uncircumcision? let him not become circumcised.
7:19 19 Circumcision is nought, and prepuce is nought, but the keeping of the commandments of God. 19 Circumcision is nothing, uncircumcision is nothing: but the keeping of the commandments of God is altogether. 19 Circumcision is nothing, and uncircumcision is nothing, but the keeping of the commandments of God. 19 Circumcision is nothing, and uncircumcision is nothing, but the keeping of the commandments of God.
7:20 20 Each man in what calling he is called, in that dwell he. 20 Let every man abide in the same state wherein he was called. 20 Let every man abide in the same vocation wherein he was called. 20 Let every man remain in the same calling in which he was called.
7:21 21 Thou servant art called, be it no charge to thee [Thou a servant art called, be it not charge to thee] ; but if thou mayest be made free, use it rather. 21 Art thou called a servant? care not for it. Nevertheless if thou mayst be free, use it rather. 21 Art thou called being a servant? care not for it: but if yet thou mayest be free, use it rather. 21 Art thou called being a servant? care not for it: but if thou mayest be made free, use it rather.
7:22 22 He that is a servant, and is called in the Lord, is a free man of the Lord. Also [and] he that is a free man, and is called, is the servant of Christ. 22 For he that is called in the Lord being a servant, is the Lord's freeman. Likewise he that is called being free, is Christ's [Christes] servant. 22 For he that is called in the Lord, being. a servant, is the Lord's freeman: likewise also he that is called being free, is Christ's servant. 22 For he that is called in the Lord, being a servant, is the Lord's freeman: likewise also he that is called, being free, is Christ's servant. [freeman: Gr. made free]
7:23 23 With price ye be bought; do not ye be made servants of men. 23 Ye are dearly bought, be not men's servants. 23 Ye are bought with a price: be not the servants of men. 23 Ye are bought with a price; be not ye the servants of men.
7:24 24 Therefore each man in what thing he is called a brother, dwell he in this with God. [Each man therefore in what calling he is called, in that dwell he with God.] 24 Brethren let every man wherein he is called, therein abide with God. 24 Brethren, let every man, wherein he was called, therein abide with God. 24 Brethren, let every man, in the state in which he is called, continue in it with God.
7:25 25 But of virgins I have no commandment of God; but I give counsel, as he that hath gotten mercy of the Lord, that I be true. 25 As concerning virgins, I have no commandment of the Lord: yet give I counsel as one that hath obtained [mercy] of the Lord to be faithful. 25 Now concerning virgins, I have no commandment of the Lord: but I give mine advise, as one that hath obtained mercy of the Lord to be faithful. 25 Now concerning virgins I have no commandment of the Lord: yet I give my judgment, as one that hath obtained mercy from the Lord to be faithful.
7:26 26 Therefore I guess, that this thing is good for the present need; for it is good to a man to be so [for it is good for a man to be so] . 26 I suppose that it is good for the present necessity. For it is good for a man so to be. 26 I suppose then this to be good for the present necessity: I mean that it is good for a man so to be. 26 I suppose therefore that this is good for the present distress, I say, that it is good for a man so to be. [distress: or, necessity]
7:27 27 Thou art bound to a wife, do not thou seek unbinding; thou art unbound from a wife, do not thou seek a wife. 27 Art thou bound unto a wife? seek not to be loosed. [lowsed] Art thou loosed [lowsed] from a wife? seek not a wife. 27 Art thou bound unto a wife? seek not to be loosed: art thou loosed from a wife? seek not a wife. 27 Art thou bound to a wife? seek not to be loosed. Art thou loosed from a wife? seek not a wife.
7:28 28 But if thou hast taken a wife, thou hast not sinned; and if a maiden is wedded, she sinned not; nevertheless such shall have tribulation of flesh. But I spare you. 28 But and if thou take a wife, thou hast not sinned. [sinnest not.] Likewise if a virgin marry, she hath not sinned: [sinneth not.] nevertheless such shall have trouble in their flesh: but I favor [saver] you. 28 But if thou takest a wife, thou sinnest not: and if a virgin marry, she sinneth not: nevertheless, such shall have trouble in the flesh: but I spare you. 28 But if thou marry, thou hast not sinned; and if a virgin marry, she hath not sinned. Nevertheless such shall have trouble in the flesh: but I spare you.
7:29 29 Therefore, brethren [And so, brethren] , I say this thing, The time is short. Another is this, that they that have wives, be as though they had none; 29 This say I brethren, the time is short. It remaineth that {Furthermore this is the meaning, that} they which have wives, be as though they had none: 29 And this I say, brethren, because the time is short, hereafter that both they which have wives, be as though they had none: 29 But this I say, brethren, the time is short: it remaineth, that both they that have wives be as though they had none;
7:30 30 and they that weep, as they wept not; and they that joy, as they joyed not; and they that buy, as they had not; 30 and they that weep, be as though they wept not: and they that rejoice, be as though they rejoiced not: And they that buy, be as though they possessed not: 30 And they that weep, as though they wept not: and they that rejoice, as though they rejoiced not: and they that buy, as though they possessed not: 30 And they that weep, as though they wept not; and they that rejoice, as though they rejoiced not; and they that buy, as though they possessed not;
7:31 31 and they that use this world, as they that use [it] not. For why the figure of this world passeth. [+and they that use this world, as not using. Forsooth the figure, or fairness, or prosperity, of this world passeth.] 31 And they that use this world, be as though they used it not: For the fashion of this world goeth {passeth} away. 31 And they that use this world, as though they used it not: for the fashion of this world goeth away. 31 And they that use this world, as not abusing it: for the fashion of this world passeth away.
7:32 32 But I will, that ye be without busyness [Forsooth I will you to be without busyness] , for he that is without wife, is busy what things be of the Lord, how he shall please God. 32 I would have you without care, the single man careth for the things of the Lord, how he may please the Lord: 32 And I would have you without care. The unmarried careth for the things of the Lord, how he may please the Lord. 32 But I would have you without care. He that is unmarried careth for the things that belong to the Lord, how he may please the Lord: [that belong...: Gr. of the Lord]
7:33 33 But he that is with a wife, is busy what things be of the world, how he shall please the wife [how he shall please his wife] , and he is parted. 33 but he that hath married, careth for the things of the world, how he may please his wife. {and is devided} 33 But he that is married, careth for the things of the world, how he may please his wife. 33 But he that is married careth for the things that are of the world, how he may please his wife.
7:34 34 And a woman unwedded and [a] maiden thinketh what things be of the Lord, that she be holy in body and spirit. But she that is wedded, thinketh what things be of the world, how she shall please the husband [how she shall please her husband] . 34 There is difference between a virgin and a wife. The single woman careth for the things of the Lord, that she may be pure {holy} both in body and also in spirit: but she that is married, careth for the things of the world, how she may please her husband. 34 There is difference also between a virgin and a wife: the unmarried woman careth for the things of the Lord, that she may be holy, both in body and in spirit: but she that is married, careth for the things of the world, how she may please her husband. 34 There is a difference also between a wife and a virgin. The unmarried woman careth for the things of the Lord, that she may be holy both in body and in spirit: but she that is married careth for the things of the world, how she may please her husband.
7:35 35 And I say these things to your profit, not that I cast to you a snare, but to that that is seemly, and that giveth easiness, without hindering to make prayers to the Lord. [Soothly I say these things to your profit, not that I cast to you a snare, but to that that is honest, and that giveth facility, or easiness, without letting to beseech to the Lord.] 35 This speak I for your profit, not to tangle you in a snare: but for that which is honest and comely unto you; And that ye may quietly cleave unto the Lord without separation. {hinderance} 35 And this I speak for your own commodity, not to tangle you in a snare, but that ye follow that, which is honest, and that ye may cleave fast unto the Lord without separation. 35 And this I speak for your own profit; not that I may cast a snare upon you, but for that which is seemly, and that ye may attend upon the Lord without distraction.
7:36 36 And if any man guesseth himself to be seen foul on his virgin, that she is full waxen [that she is well old] , and so it behooveth to be done, do she that that she will [+do she what she will/do her keeper what she will/do she that he will] ; she sinneth not, if she be wedded [+s/he sinneth not, if s/he be wedded] . 36 If any man think that it is uncomely for his virgin if she pass the time of marriage, and if so need require, let him do what he listeth, he sinneth not: let them be coupled in marriage. 36 But if any man think that it is uncomely for his virgin, if she pass the flower of her age, and need so require, let him do what he will, he sinneth not: let them be married. 36 But if any man thinketh that he behaveth himself unseemly toward his virgin, if she hath passed the flower of her age, and need so requireth, let him do what he will, he sinneth not: let them marry.
7:37 37 For he that ordained stably in his heart [For why he that ordained stably, or steadfast, in his heart] , not having need, but having power of his will, and hath deemed in his heart this thing, to keep his virgin [for to keep his virginity] , doeth well. 37 Nevertheless, he that purposeth surely in his heart, having none need: but hath power over his own will: and hath so decreed {determine} in his heart that he will keep his virgin, doth well. 37 Nevertheless, he that standeth firm in his heart, that he hath no need, but hath power over his own will, and hath so decreed in his heart, that he will keep his virgin, he doeth well. 37 Nevertheless he that standeth steadfast in his heart, having no necessity, but hath power over his own will, and hath so decreed in his heart that he will keep his virgin, doeth well.
7:38 38 Therefore he that joineth his virgin in matrimony, doeth well; and he that joineth not, doeth better. 38 So then he that joineth his virgin in marriage doth well. And [But] he that joineth not his virgin in marriage doth better. 38 So then he that giveth her to marriage, doeth well, but he that giveth her not to marriage, doeth better. 38 So then he that giveth her in marriage doeth well; but he that giveth her not in marriage doeth better.
7:39 39 The woman is bound to the law, as long time as her husband liveth; and if her husband is dead, she is delivered from the law of the husband [she is delivered from the law] , be she wedded to whom she will, only in the Lord. 39 The wife is bound to the law as long as her husband liveth. If her husband sleep, she is at liberty to marry with whom she will only in the Lord. 39 The wife is bound by the Law, as long as her husband liveth: but if her husband be dead, she is at liberty to marry with whom she will, only in the Lord. 39 The wife is bound by the law as long as her husband liveth; but if her husband is dead, she is at liberty to be married to whom she will; only in the Lord.
7:40 40 But she shall be more blessed, if she dwelleth thus [if she shall thus dwell] , after my counsel; and I ween, that I have the Spirit of God. 40 But she is happier if she so abide, in my judgement. And I think verily that I have the spirit of God. 40 But she is more blessed, if she so abide, in my judgement: and I think that I have also the Spirit of God. 40 But she is happier if she so remain, after my judgment: and I think also that I have the Spirit of God.
8:1 1 But of these things that be sacrificed to idols, we know, for all we have knowing. But knowing bloweth, charity edifieth [Soothly science, or knowing, in-bloweth with pride, charity edifieth] . 1 To speak of things dedicated unto idols, {As touching things offered unto Idols} we are sure that we all have knowledge. Knowledge maketh a man swell: but love edifieth. 1 And as touching things sacrificed unto idols, we know that we all have knowledge: knowledge puffeth up, but love edifieth. 1 Now as concerning things offered to idols, we know that we all have knowledge. Knowledge puffeth up, but charity edifieth.
8:2 2 But if any man guesseth [Forsooth if any man guess, or deem] , that he knoweth any thing, he hath not yet known how it behooveth him to know. 2 If any man think that he knoweth any thing, he knoweth nothing yet as he ought to know. 2 Now, if any man think that he knoweth anything, he knoweth nothing yet as he ought to know. 2 And if any man thinketh that he knoweth any thing, he knoweth nothing yet as he ought to know.
8:3 3 And if any man loveth God, this is known of him. 3 But if any man love God, the same is known of him. 3 But if any man love God, the same is known of him. 3 But if any man loveth God, the same is known by him.
8:4 4 But of meats that be offered to idols, we know, that an idol is nothing in the world, and that there is no God but one. 4 To speak of meat dedicated unto idols, we are sure that there is none idol {So are we sure now concerning the meats offered unto Idols, that an Idol is nothing} in the world: and that there is none other God but one. 4 Concerning therefore the eating of things [therefore meat] sacrificed unto idols, we know that an idol is nothing in the world, and that there is none other God but one. 4 Therefore as concerning the eating of those things that are offered in sacrifice to idols, we know that an idol is nothing in the world, and that there is no other God but one.
8:5 5 For though there be some that be said gods [For why though there be that be said gods] , either in heaven, either in earth, as there be many gods, and many lords; 5 And though there be that are called gods, whether in heaven or in earth (as there be gods many and lords many) 5 For though there be that are called gods, whether in heaven, or in earth (as there be many gods, and many lords) 5 For though there are that are called gods, whether in heaven or upon earth, (as there are gods many, and lords many,)
8:6 6 nevertheless to us is one God, the Father, of whom be all things, and we in him; and one Lord Jesus Christ, by whom be all things, and we by him. 6 but [yet] unto us is there [but] one God, which is the father, of whom are all things, and we in him: and one Lord Jesus Christ, by whom are all things, and we by him. 6 Yet unto us there is but one God, which is that [the] Father, of whom are all things, and we in him: and one Lord Jesus Christ, by whom are all things, and we by him. 6 Yet to us there is but one God, the Father, from whom are all things, and we in him; and one Lord Jesus Christ, by whom are all things, and we by him. [in: or, for]
8:7 7 But not in all men is knowing. For some men with conscience of idol till now eat as thing offered to idols; and their conscience is defouled, for it is frail [when it is sick] . 7 But every man hath not knowledge. For some suppose that there is an idol, until this hour, and eat as of a thing offered unto the idol, and so their consciences being yet weak are defiled. 7 But every man hath not that knowledge: for many [some] having conscience of the idol, until this hour, eat as a thing sacrificed unto the idol, and so their conscience being weak, is defiled. 7 But there is not in every man that knowledge: for some with conscience of the idol to this hour eat it as a thing offered to an idol; and their conscience being weak is defiled.
8:8 8 [Forsooth] Meat commendeth us not to God; for neither we shall fail, if we eat not, neither if we eat, we shall have plenty [we shall abound, or have plenty] . 8 Meat maketh us not acceptable to God: Neither if we eat are we the better: Neither if we eat not are we the worse. {less} 8 But meat maketh not us acceptable to God, for neither if we eat, have we the more: neither if we eat not, have we the less. 8 But food commendeth us not to God: for neither, if we eat, are we the better; neither, if we eat not, are we the worse. [are we the better: or, have we the more] [are we the worse: or, have we the less]
8:9 9 But see ye, lest peradventure this your leave be made hurting to frail men. [See ye forsooth, lest peradventure this your license, or leave, be made hurting, or offence, to sick men, or frail.] 9 But take heed that your liberty cause not the weak to fall. {be not an occasion of falling unto the weak} 9 But take heed lest by any means this power of yours be an occasion of falling, to them that are weak. 9 But take heed lest by any means this liberty of yours should become a stumblingblock to them that are weak. [liberty: or, power]
8:10 10 For if any man shall see him, that hath knowing, eating in a place where idols be worshipped, whether his conscience, since it is frail [since it is sick] , shall not be edified to eat things offered to idols? 10 For if some man see thee which hast knowledge sit at meat in the idol's temple shall not the conscience of him which is weak be boldened {occasioned} to eat those things which are offered unto the idol? 10 For if any man see thee which hast knowledge, sit at table in the idol's temple, shall not the conscience of him which is weak, be boldened to eat those things which are sacrificed to idols? 10 For if any man shall see thee who hast knowledge sit eating in the idol's temple, shall not the conscience of him who is weak be emboldened to eat those things which are offered to idols; [emboldened: Gr. edified]
8:11 11 And the frail brother [And the sick brother] , for whom Christ died, shall perish in thy knowing. 11 And so thorow thy knowledge shall the weak brother perish for whom Christ died. 11 And through thy knowledge shall the weak brother perish, for whom Christ died. 11 And through thy knowledge shall the weak brother perish, for whom Christ died?
8:12 12 For thus ye sinning against brethren, and smiting their frail conscience [and smiting their sick conscience] , sin against Christ. 12 When we [ye] sin so against the brethren and wound their weak consciences, we [ye] sin against Christ. 12 Now when ye sin so against the brethren, and wound their weak conscience, ye sin against Christ. 12 But when ye thus sin against the brethren, and wound their weak conscience, ye sin against Christ.
8:13 13 Wherefore if meat causeth my brother to stumble, I shall never eat flesh, lest I cause my brother to stumble. [Wherefore if meat causeth my brother to offend, I shall not eat flesh into without end, lest I cause my brother to offend.] 13 Wherefore if meat hurt {offend} my brother, I will eat no flesh while the world standeth, because I will not hurt {lest i offend} my brother. 13 Wherefore if meat offend my brother, I will eat no flesh while the world standeth, that I may not offend my brother. 13 Therefore, if food maketh my brother to stumble, I will eat no flesh while the world standeth, lest I make my brother to stumble.
9:1 1 Whether I am not free? Am I not apostle? Whether I saw not Jesus Christ, our Lord? Whether ye be not my work in the Lord? 1 Am I not an apostle? am I not free? have I not seen Jesus Christ our Lord? Are not ye my work in the Lord. 1 Am I not an Apostle? am I not free? have I not seen Jesus Christ our Lord? are ye not my work in the Lord? 1 Am I not an apostle? am I not free? have I not seen Jesus Christ our Lord? are ye not my work in the Lord?
9:2 2 And though to others I am not apostle, but nevertheless to you I am; for ye be the little sign of mine apostlehood [for why ye be the signal, or little sign, of mine apostlehood] in the Lord. 2 If I be not an apostle unto other, yet am I unto you. For the seal of mine apostleship are ye in the Lord. 2 If I be not an Apostle unto other, yet doubtless I am unto you: for ye are the seal of mine Apostleship in the Lord. 2 If I am not an apostle to others, yet doubtless I am to you: for ye are the seal of my apostleship in the Lord.
9:3 3 My defence to them that ask me, that is. [My defence to them that ask me, is this] . 3 Mine answer to them that ask me, is this: 3 My defense to them that examine me, is this, 3 My answer to them that examine me is this,
9:4 4 Whether we have not power to eat and drink? 4 Have we not power to eat and to drink? 4 Have we not power to eat and to drink? 4 Have we no right to eat and to drink?
9:5 5 Whether we have not power to lead about a woman, a sister, as also other apostles, and brethren of the Lord, and Cephas? 5 Either have we not power to lead about a sister to wife as well as other apostles, and as the brethren of the Lord, and Cephas? 5 Or have we not power to lead about a wife being a sister, as well as the rest of the Apostles, and as the brethren of the Lord, and Cephas? 5 Have we no right to lead about a sister, a wife, as well as other apostles, and as the brethren of the Lord, and Cephas? [wife: or, woman]
9:6 6 Or I alone and Barnabas have not power to work these things? 6 Either only I and Barnabas have not power this to do? 6 Or I only and Barnabas, have not we power not to work? 6 Or I only and Barnabas, have we no right to forbear working?
9:7 7 Who travaileth any time with his own wages? Who planteth a vineyard, and eateth not of his fruit? Who keepeth a flock, and eateth not of the milk of the flock? [+Who fighteth, or holdeth knighthood, any time with his own soldiers? Who planteth a vineyard, and eateth not of the fruits? Who feedeth a flock, and eateth not of the milk of the flock?] 7 Who goeth a warfare any time at his own cost? {upon his own wages?} who planteth a vineyard and eateth not of the fruit? {fruit thereof?} or who feedeth a flock and eateth not of the milk? 7 Who goeth a warfare any time at his own cost? who planteth a vineyard, and eateth not of the fruit thereof? or who feedeth a flock, and eateth not of the milk of the flock? 7 Who goeth to war at any time at his own expense? who planteth a vineyard, and eateth not of its fruit? or who feedeth a flock, and eateth not of the milk of the flock?
9:8 8 Whether after man I say these things? whether also the law saith not these things? 8 Say I these things after the manner of men? or sayth not the law the same also? 8 Say I these things according to man? saith not the Law the same also? 8 Do I say these things as a man? or saith not the law the same also?
9:9 9 For it is written in the law of Moses, Thou shalt not bind [up] the mouth of the ox that thresheth. Whether of oxen is charge to God? 9 For it is written in the law of Moses: Thou shall not muzzle [mosell] the mouth of the ox that treadeth out the corn. Doth God take thought for oxen? 9 For it is written in the Law of Moses, Thou shalt not muzzle [mussel] the mouth of the ox that treadeth out the corn: doeth God take care for oxen? 9 For it is written in the law of Moses, Thou shalt not muzzle the mouth of the ox that treadeth out the grain. Doth God take care for oxen?
9:10 10 Whether for us he saith these things? For why those be written for us [For why for us they be written] ; for he that ploweth, oweth to plow in hope, and he that thresheth, in hope to take fruits. 10 Either {Or} saith he it not all together for our sakes? For our sakes no doubt this is written: that he which eareth should ear in {upon} hope: and that he which thresheth in {upon} hope, should {that he might} be partaker of his hope. 10 Either saith he it not altogether for our sakes? For our sakes no doubt it is written, that he which eareth, should ear in hope, and that he that thresheth in hope, should be partaker of his hope. 10 Or saith he this altogether for our sakes? For our sakes, no doubt, this is written: that he that ploweth should plow in hope; and that he that thresheth in hope should be partaker of his hope.
9:11 11 If we sow spiritual things to you, is it great, if we reap your fleshly things? 11 If we sow unto you spiritual things: is it a great thing if we reap your carnal things? 11 If we have sown unto you spiritual things, is it a great thing if we reap your carnal things? 11 If we have sown to you spiritual things, is it a great thing if we shall reap your carnal things?
9:12 12 If others be partners of your power, why not rather we? But we use not this power, but we suffer all things, that we give no hindering [that we give no letting] to the evangel of Christ. 12 If other be partakers of this power over you? wherefore are not we rather. Nevertheless we have not used this power: but suffer all things lest we should hinder the gospel [gospell] of Christ. 12 If others with you be partakers of this power, are not we rather? nevertheless, we have not used this power: but suffer all things, that we should not hinder the Gospel of Christ. 12 If others are partakers of this right over you, are not we rather? Nevertheless we have not used this right; but endure all things, lest we should hinder the gospel of Christ.
9:13 13 Know ye not, that they that work in the temple, eat those things that be of the temple [Know ye not, that they that work in the sanctuary, eat those things that be of the sanctuary] , and they that serve to the altar, be partners of the altar? 13 Do ye not understand how that they which minister in the temple: have their finding {living} of the temple? And they which wait at the altar are partakers with {enjoy} the altar? 13 Do ye not know, that they which minister about the holy things, eat of the things of the Temple? and they which wait at the altar, are partakers with the altar? 13 Do ye not know that they who minister about holy things live from the things of the temple? and they who wait at the altar are partakers with the altar? [live: or, feed]
9:14 14 So [and] the Lord ordained to them that tell the gospel, to live of the gospel. 14 Even so also did the Lord ordain, that they which preach the gospel, [gospell] should live of the gospel: [gospell] 14 So also hath the Lord ordained, that they which preach the Gospel, should live of the Gospel. 14 Even so hath the Lord ordained that they who preach the gospel should live by the gospel.
9:15 15 But I used none of these things; and I wrote not these things, that they be done so in me; for it is good rather for me to die, than that any man should make my rejoicing void [than that any man void my glory] . 15 But I have used none of these things. Neither wrote I these things that it should be so done unto me. [For] It were better for me to die than any man should take this rejoicing from me. 15 But I have used none of these things: neither wrote I these things, that it should be so done unto me: for it were better for me to die, than that any man should make my rejoicing vain. 15 But I have used none of these things: neither have I written these things, that it should be so done to me: for it were better for me to die, than that any man should make my glorying void.
9:16 16 For if I preach the gospel, glory is not to me, for need-like I must do it [+forsooth need lieth to me (forsooth need lieth before me)/forsooth need nigheth to me] ; for woe to me, if I preach not the gospel. 16 In that I preach the gospel [gospell] I have nothing to rejoice of. {I need not boast my self} For necessity is put unto me. {for I must needs do it} Woe is it unto me if I preach not the gospel. [gospell] 16 For though I preach the Gospel, I have nothing to rejoice of: for necessity is laid upon me, and woe is unto me, if I preach not the Gospel. 16 For though I preach the gospel, I have nothing to boast of: for necessity is laid upon me; and, woe is to me, if I preach not the gospel!
9:17 17 But if I do this thing willfully, I have meed; but if against my will, dispensing is betaken to me. [Forsooth if I willing do this thing, I have meed; soothly if against my will, dispensation is betaken to me.] 17 If I do it with a good will, I have a reward. [But] If I do it against my will, an office is committed unto me. 17 For if I do it willingly, I have a reward, but if I do it against my will, notwithstanding the dispensation is committed unto me. 17 For if I do this thing willingly, I have a reward: but if against my will, a dispensation of the gospel is committed to me.
9:18 18 What then is my meed? That I preaching the gospel, put the gospel without others' cost, that I use not my power in the gospel. [+What therefore is my hire, or meed? That I preach the gospel, put the gospel without expense, either taking of sustenance therefore, that I mis-use not my power in the gospel.] 18 What is my reward then? Verily that when I preach the gospel, [gospell] I make the gospel [gospell] of Christ free, that I misuse not mine authority {abuse not my liberty} in the gospel. 18 What is my reward then? verily that when I preach the Gospel, I make the Gospel of Christ free, that I abuse not mine authority in the Gospel. 18 What is my reward then? Verily that, when I preach the gospel, I may make the gospel of Christ without charge, that I may not abuse my right in the gospel.
9:19 19 For why when I was free of all men, I made me servant of all men, to win the more men [that I should win more men] . 19 For though I be free from all men, yet have I made myself servant unto all men, that I might win the more. 19 For though I be free from all men, yet have I made myself servant unto all men, that I might win the more. 19 For though I am free from all men, yet I have made myself servant to all, that I might gain the more.
9:20 20 And to Jews I am made as a Jew, to win the Jews [that I should win Jews] ; to them that be under the law, as I were under the law, when I was not under the law, to win them that were under the law [that I should win them that were under the law] ; 20 And unto the jews, I became as a jew, to win the jews. To them that were under the law, was I made as though I had been under the law, to win them that were under the law. (when I was not under the law) 20 And unto the Jews, I become as a Jew, that I may win the Jews: to them that are under the Law, as though I were under the Law, that I may win them that are under the Law: 20 And to the Jews I became as a Jew, that I might gain the Jews; to them that are under the law, as under the law, that I might gain them that are under the law;
9:21 21 to them that were without law, as I were without law, when I was not without [the] law of God, but I was in the law of Christ, to win them that were without law [that I should win them that were without law] . 21 To them that were without law, became I as though I had been without law (when I was not without law as pertaining to God, but under a law as concerning Christ) to win them that were without law. 21 To them that are without Law, as though I were without Law, (when I am not without Law as pertaining to God, but am in the Law through Christ) that I may win them that are without Law: 21 To them that are without law, as without law, (being not without law to God, but under the law to Christ,) that I might gain them that are without law.
9:22 22 I am made frail to frail men, to win frail men; to all men I am made all things, to make all men safe. [I am made sick to sick men, that I should win sick men; to all men I am made all things, that I should make all men safe.] 22 To the weak became I as weak, to win the weak. In all thing I fashioned myself to all men, to save at the leastway some. 22 To the weak I become as weak, that I may win the weak: I am made all things to all men, that I might by all means save some. 22 To the weak I became as weak, that I might gain the weak: I have become all things to all men, that I might by all means save some.
9:23 23 But I do all things for the gospel, that I [should] be made partner of it. 23 And this I do for the Gospel's sake, that I might have my part thereof. 23 And this I do for the Gospel's sake, that I might be partaker thereof with you. 23 And this I do for the gospel's sake, that I may be a partaker of it with you.
9:24 24 Know ye not, that they that run in a furlong, all run, but one taketh the prize? So run ye, that ye catch. 24 Perceive ye not how that they which run in a course, run all, yet but one receiveth the reward? So run that ye may obtain. 24 Know ye not, that they which run in a race, run all, yet one receiveth the prize? So run that ye may obtain. 24 Know ye not that they who run in a race all run, but one receiveth the prize? So run, that ye may obtain.
9:25 25 Each man that striveth in fight, abstaineth him from all things; and they [forsooth] , that they take a corruptible crown, but we an uncorrupt. 25 Every man that proveth masteries abstaineth from all things. And they do it to obtain a corruptible crown: but we to obtain an everlasting [uncorruptible] crown: 25 And every man that proveth masteries, abstaineth from all things: and they do it to obtain a corruptible crown: but we for an incorruptible. 25 And every man that striveth for the mastery is temperate in all things. Now they do it to obtain a corruptible crown; but we an incorruptible.
9:26 26 Therefore I run so, not as to an uncertain thing; thus I fight, not as beating the air; 26 I therefore so run, not as at an uncertain thing. So fight I, not as one that beateth the air: 26 I therefore so run, not as uncertainly: so fight I, not as one that beateth the air. 26 I therefore so run, not as uncertainly; so I fight, not as one that beateth the air:
9:27 27 but I chastise my body, and bring it into servage; lest peradventure when I preach to others [lest peradventure when I have preached to others] , I myself be made reprovable. 27 but I tame my body and bring him [it] into subjection, lest after that I have preached to other, I myself should be a castaway. 27 But I beat down my body, and bring it into subjection, lest by any means after that I have preached to other, I myself should be reproved. 27 But I keep under my body, and bring it into subjection: lest by any means, when I have preached to others, I myself should be a castaway.
10:1 1 Brethren, I will not, that ye not know [Soothly, brethren, I will not you to unknow] , that all our fathers were under [a] cloud, and all passed the sea; 1 Brethren I would not that ye should be ignorant of this, how that our fathers were all under a cloud, and all passed thorow the sea, 1 Moreover, brethren, I would not that ye should be ignorant, that all our fathers were under that [the] cloud, and all passed through that [the] sea, 1 Moreover, brethren, I would not that ye should be ignorant, that all our fathers were under the cloud, and all passed through the sea;
10:2 2 and all were baptized in Moses, in the cloud and in the sea; 2 and were all baptised under Moses in the cloud and in the sea: 2 And were all baptized unto Moses, in that [the] cloud, and in that [the] sea, 2 And were all baptized to Moses in the cloud and in the sea;
10:3 3 and all ate the same spiritual meat, 3 and did all eat of one spiritual meat, 3 And did all eat the same spiritual meat, 3 And all ate the same spiritual food;
10:4 4 and all drank the same spiritual drink; and they drank of the spiritual stone following them [forsooth they drank of the spiritual stone following them] ; and the stone was Christ. 4 and did all drink of one manner of spiritual drink. And they drank of that spiritual rock that followed them, which rock was Christ. 4 And did all drink the same spiritual drink (for they drank of the spiritual Rock that followed them: and the Rock was Christ) 4 And all drank the same spiritual drink: for they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them: and that Rock was Christ. [followed...: or, went with them]
10:5 5 But not in full many of them it was well pleasant to God; for why they were cast down in [the] desert. 5 But in many of them had God no delight. For they were overthrown {smitten down} in the wilderness. 5 But with many of them God was not pleased: for they were overthrown in the wilderness. 5 But with many of them God was not well pleased: for they were overthrown in the wilderness.
10:6 6 But these things were done in figure of us, that we be not coveters of evil things, as [and] they coveted. 6 These are examples to us that we should not lust after evil things, as they lusted. 6 Now these things are our ensamples, [these are ensamples to us,] to the intent that we should not lust after evil things as they also lusted. 6 Now these things were our examples, to the intent we should not lust after evil things, as they also lusted. [our...: Gr. our figures]
10:7 7 Neither be ye made idolaters, as some of them; as it is written, The people sat to eat and drink, and they rose up to play [and they have risen up to play] . 7 Neither be ye worshippers of images as were some of them according as it is written: The people sat down to eat and drink, and rose up again to play. 7 Neither be ye idolaters as were some of them, as it is written, The people sat down to eat and drink, and rose up to play. 7 Neither be ye idolaters, as were some of them; as it is written, The people sat down to eat and drink, and rose up to play.
10:8 8 Neither do we fornication, as some of them did fornication, and three and twenty thousand were dead in one day [and three and twenty thousand fell, or died, in one day] . 8 Neither let us commit fornication {whoredom} as some of them committed fornication, {whoredom} and were destroyed {fell} in one day twenty three thousand. 8 Neither let us commit fornication, as some of them committed fornication, and fell in one day three and twenty thousand. 8 Neither let us commit immorality, as some of them committed, and fell in one day three and twenty thousand.
10:9 9 Neither tempt we Christ, as some of them tempted, and perished of serpents. 9 Neither let us tempt Christ, as some of them tempted and were destroyed of serpents. 9 Neither let us tempt Christ, as some of them also tempted him, and were destroyed of serpents. 9 Neither let us tempt Christ, as some of them also tempted, and were destroyed by serpents.
10:10 10 Neither grumble ye, as some of them grumbled, and they perished of a destroyer. [Neither grutch ye, as some of them grutched, and they perished of the waster, or destroyer.] 10 Neither murmur ye as some of them murmured, and were destroyed of the destroyer. 10 Neither murmur ye, as some of them also murmured, and were destroyed of the destroyer. 10 Neither murmur ye, as some of them also murmured, and were destroyed by the destroyer.
10:11 11 And all these things fell to them in figure; but they be written to our amending, into whom the ends of the worlds be come [soothly they be written to our correction, or amending, into whom the ends of the world have come] . 11 All these things happened upon them for ensamples, and were written to put us in remembrance, {to warn us} whom the ends of the world are come upon. 11 Now all these things came unto them for ensamples, [ensamples] and were written to admonish us, upon whom the ends of the world are come. 11 Now all these things happened to them for examples: and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come. [ensamples: or, types]
10:12 12 Therefore he that guesseth him(self), that he standeth, see he, that he fall not. [And so he that guesseth him to stand, see, that he fall not.] 12 Wherefore let him that thinketh he standeth, take heed lest he fall. 12 Wherefore, let him that thinketh he standeth, take heed lest he fall. 12 Therefore let him that thinketh he standeth take heed lest he fall.
10:13 13 Temptation take not you, but man's temptation; for God is true, which shall not suffer you to be tempted above that that ye be able; but he shall make with temptation also purveyance, that ye be able to suffer [that ye may sustain] . 13 There hath none other temptation taken you, {yet no temptation overtaken you} but such as followeth the nature of man. God is faithful, which shall not suffer you to be tempted above your strength: but shall in the midst of the temptation make a way to escape out. {that ye may bear it} 13 There hath no temptation taken you, but such as appertain [appertaineth] to man: and God is faithful, which will not suffer you to be tempted above that you be able, but will even give the issue with the temptation, that ye may be able to bear it. 13 There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted above what ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it. [common...: or, moderate]
10:14 14 Wherefore, ye most dear-worthy to me, flee ye from the worshipping of maumets [flee from worshipping of idols] . 14 Wherefore my dear beloved, flee from worshipping of idols. 14 Wherefore my beloved, flee from idolatry. 14 Therefore, my dearly beloved, flee from idolatry.
10:15 15 As to prudent men I speak, deem ye yourselves that thing that I say. 15 I speak as unto them which have discretion, judge ye what I say. 15 I speak as unto them which have understanding: judge ye what I say. 15 I speak as to wise men; judge ye what I say.
10:16 16 Whether the cup of blessing which we bless, is not the communing of Christ's blood? and whether the bread which we break, is not the part taking of the body of the Lord? [The cup of blessing which we bless, whether it is not the communing of Christís blood? and the bread which we break, whether it is not the dealing, or part taking, of the body of the Lord?] 16 Is not the cup of blessing which we bless, {thanksgiving wherewith we give thanks} partaking of the blood of Christ? is not the bread which we break, partaking of the body of Christ? 16 The cup of blessing which we bless, is it not the communion of the blood of Christ? The bread which we break, is it not the communion of the body of Christ? 16 The cup of blessing which we bless, is it not the communion of the blood of Christ? The bread which we break, is it not the communion of the body of Christ?
10:17 17 For we many be one bread and one body, all we that take part of one bread and of one cup. 17 because that we (though we be many) yet are one bread, and one body inasmuch as we all are partakers of one bread. (and of one cup) 17 For we that are many, are one bread and one body, because we all are partakers of one bread. 17 For we being many are one bread, and one body: for we are all partakers of that one bread.
10:18 18 See ye Israel after the flesh, whether they that eat sacrifices, be not partners of the altar? 18 Behold Israel which walketh carnally. {after the flesh} Are not they which eat of the sacrifice, partakers of the altar? 18 Behold Israel, which is after the flesh: are not they which eat of the sacrifices partakers of the altar? 18 Behold Israel after the flesh: are not they who eat of the sacrifices partakers of the altar?
10:19 19 What therefore say I, that a thing that is offered to idols is any thing, or that the idol is any thing? 19 What say I then? that the image {Idoll} is anything? or that it which is offered to images {the Idoll} is anything? 19 What say I then? that the idol is anything? or that that which is sacrificed to idols, is anything? 19 What then do I say? that the idol is any thing, or that which is offered in sacrifice to idols is any thing?
10:20 20 But those things that heathen men offer, they offer to devils, and not to God. But I will not, that ye be made fellows of fiends; 20 Nay, but I say, that those [these] things which the gentiles {Heathen} offer, they offer to devils, and not to God. And I would not that ye should have fellowship with the devils. 20 Nay, but that these things which the Gentiles sacrifice, they sacrifice to devils, and not unto God: and I would not that ye should have fellowship with the devils. 20 But I say, that the things which the Gentiles sacrifice, they sacrifice to demons, and not to God: and I would not that ye should have fellowship with demons.
10:21 21 for ye be not able to drink the cup of the Lord [for ye may not drink the cup of the Lord] , and the cup of fiends; ye be not able to be partners of the board of the Lord [ye may not be partners of the board of the Lord] , and of the board of fiends. 21 Ye cannot drink of the cup of the Lord, and of the cup of the devils. Ye can not be partakers of the Lord's table, and of the table of devils. 21 Ye can not drink the cup of the Lord, and the cup of the devils. Ye can not be partakers of the Lord's table, and of the table of the devils. 21 Ye cannot drink the cup of the Lord, and the cup of demons: ye cannot be partakers of the Lord's table, and of the table of demons.
10:22 22 Whether we have envy to the Lord? whether we be stronger than he? 22 Other [Either] shall we provoke the Lord? other [Or] are we stronger than he? 22 Do we provoke the Lord to anger? are we stronger than he? 22 Do we provoke the Lord to jealousy? are we stronger than he?
10:23 23 All things be leaveful to me, but not all things be speedful. All things be leaveful to me, but not all things edify. 23 All things are lawful unto me, but all things are not expedient. {I may do all things, but all things are not profitable} All things are lawful, [to me] but all things edify not. 23 All things are lawful for me, but all things are not expedient: all things are lawful for me, but all things edify not. 23 All things are lawful for me, but all things are not expedient: all things are lawful for me, but all things edify not.
10:24 24 No man seek that thing that is his own, but that thing that is of another. 24 Let no man seek his own profit: but let every man seek his neighbors [seek another's] wealth. 24 Let no man seek his own, but every man another's wealth. 24 Let no man seek his own, but every man another's good.
10:25 25 All thing that is sold in the butchery, eat ye, asking nothing for conscience. 25 Whatsoever is sold in the market, that eat, and ask no questions for conscience sake. 25 Whatsoever is sold in the shambles, eat ye, and ask no question for conscience sake. 25 Whatever is sold in the meat market, that eat, asking no question for conscience sake:
10:26 26 The earth and the plenty of it, is the Lord's. 26 For the earth is the Lord's, [lordis] and all that therein is. 26 For the earth is the Lord's, and all that therein is. 26 For the earth is the Lord's, and all it containeth.
10:27 27 If any of heathen men call you to supper [Forsooth if any of unfaithful, or heathen men, calleth you to supper] , and ye will go, all thing that is set to you, eat ye, asking nothing for conscience. 27 If any of them which believe not bid you to a feast, and if ye be disposed to go, whatsoever is set before you eat, asking no question for conscience sake; 27 If any of them which believe not, call you to a feast, and if ye will go, whatsoever is set before you, eat, asking no question for conscience sake. 27 If any of them that believe not bid you to a feast, and ye are disposed to go; whatever is set before you, eat, asking no question for conscience sake.
10:28 28 But if any man saith [If any man soothly say to you] , This thing is offered to idols, do not ye eat, for him that showed [this thing] , and for conscience; 28 but and if any man say unto you: this is dedicated {offered} unto idols, eat not of it for his sake that shewed it, and for hurting of conscience: the earth is the Lord's and all that therein is. 28 But if any man say unto you, This is sacrificed unto idols, eat it not, because of him that shewed it, and for the conscience (for the earth is the Lord's, and all that therein is) 28 But if any man shall say to you, This is offered in sacrifice to idols, eat not for his sake that showed it, and for conscience sake: for the earth is the Lord's, and all it containeth:
10:29 29 and I say not, thy conscience, but of another [manís] . But whereto is my freedom deemed of another man's conscience [Soothly whereto is my liberty, or freedom, deemed of another manís conscience] ? 29 Conscience I say, not thine: but the conscience of that other. [For] Why should my liberty be judged of another man's conscience? 29 And the conscience, I say, not thine, but of that other: for why should my liberty be condemned of another man's conscience? 29 Conscience, I say, not thy own, but of the other: for why is my liberty judged by another man's conscience?
10:30 30 Therefore if I take part with grace, what am I blasphemed, for that that I do thankings [for that that I do graces, or thankings] ? 30 For if I take my part with thanks: {thanksgiving} why am I evil spoken of for that thing wherefore I give thanks? 30 For if I through God's benefit be partaker, why am I evil spoken of, for that wherefore I give thanks? 30 For if I by grace am a partaker, why am I evil spoken of for that for which I give thanks? [grace: or, thanksgiving]
10:31 31 Therefore whether ye eat, or drink, or do any other thing, do ye all things to the glory of God. 31 Whether therefore ye eat or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the praise of God. 31 Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God. 31 Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatever ye do, do all to the glory of God.
10:32 32 Be ye without offence to Jews, and to heathen men, and to the church of God; 32 See that ye give none occasion of evil, {falling} neither to the jews, nor yet to the gentiles, neither to the congregation of God: 32 Give none offence, neither to the Jews, nor to the Grecians, nor to the Church of God: 32 Give no offence, neither to the Jews, nor to the Gentiles, nor to the church of God: [Gentiles: Gr. Greeks]
10:33 33 as [and] I by all things please to all men, not seeking that that is profitable to me [not seeking what is profitable to me] , but that that is profitable to many men, that they be made safe. 33 even as I please all men in all things not seeking mine own profit, but the profit of many, that they might be saved. 33 Even as I please all men in all things, not seeking mine own profit, but the profit of many, that they might be saved. 33 Even as I please all men in all things, not seeking my own profit, but the profit of many, that they may be saved.
11:1 1 Be ye my followers, as [and] I am of Christ. [Be ye followers of me, as and I of Christ.] 1 Follow me as I do Christ. 1 Be ye the followers of me, even as I am of Christ. 1 Be ye followers of me, even as I also am of Christ.
11:2 2 And, brethren, I praise you, that by all things ye be mindful of me; and as I betook to you my commandments, ye hold [and as I betook to you my commandments, ye keep] . 2 I commend you brethren that ye remember me in all things, and keep the ordinances which I gave [even as I delivered them] to you. 2 Now brethren, I commend you, that ye remember all my things, and keep the ordinances, as I delivered them to you. 2 Now I praise you, brethren, that ye remember me in all things, and keep the ordinances, as I delivered them to you. [ordinances: or, traditions]
11:3 3 But I will that ye know, that Christ is [the] head of each man; but the head of the woman is the man; and the head of Christ is God. 3 I would ye knew {But I certify you} that Christ is the head of every man; and the woman's head is the man; and Christ's [Christes] head is God. [And the man is the womans head. And God is Christes head.] 3 But I will that ye know, that Christ is the head of every man: and the man is the woman's head: and God is Christ's head. 3 But I would have you know, that the head of every man is Christ; and the head of the woman is the man; and the head of Christ is God.
11:4 4 Each man praying, or prophesying, when his head is covered, defouleth his head. 4 Every man praying or prophesying having any thing on his head, shameth his head. 4 Every man praying or prophesying having anything on his head, dishonoreth his head. 4 Every man praying or prophesying, having his head covered, dishonoureth his head.
11:5 5 But each woman praying, or prophesying, when her head is not covered, defouleth her head; for it is one, as if she were polled [as if she be made bald, polled, or clipped] . 5 Every woman that prayeth or prophesieth bare headed, {uncovered head} dishonesteth her head. For it is even all one, and the very same thing even as though she were shaven. 5 But every woman that prayeth or prophesieth bareheaded, dishonoreth her head: for it is even one very thing, as though she were shaven. 5 But every woman that prayeth or prophesieth with her head uncovered dishonoureth her head: for that is even all one as if she were shaved.
11:6 6 And if a woman be not covered [For if a woman be not veiled, or covered] , be she polled; and if it is foul thing to a woman to be polled, or to be made bald, cover she her head. 6 If the woman be not covered, let her also be shaven. [shorn.] If it be shame for a woman to be shaven or shorn, let her cover her head. 6 Therefore if the woman be not covered, let her also be shorn: and if it be shame for a woman to be shorn or shaven, let her be covered. 6 For if the woman is not covered, let her also be shorn: but if it is a shame for a woman to be shorn or shaved, let her be covered.
11:7 7 But a man shall not cover his head, for he is the image and glory of God; but a woman is the glory of man. 7 A man ought not to cover his head, forasmuch as he is the image and glory of God. The woman is the glory of the man. 7 For a man ought not to cover his head: for as much as he is the image and glory of God: but the woman is the glory of the man. 7 For a man indeed ought not to cover his head, forasmuch as he is the image and glory of God: but the woman is the glory of the man.
11:8 8 For a man is not of the woman, but the woman of the man. 8 For the man is not of the woman, but the woman of the man. 8 For the man is not of the woman, but the woman of the man. 8 For the man is not from the woman; but the woman from the man.
11:9 9 And the man is not made for the woman, but the woman for the man. 9 Neither was the man created for the woman's sake: but the woman for the man's sake. 9 For the man was not created for the woman's sake: but the woman for the man's sake. 9 Neither was the man created for the woman; but the woman for the man.
11:10 10 Therefore the woman shall have a covering on her head, also for angels. 10 For this cause ought the woman to have power in [on] her head, for the angels' sake. [sakes] 10 Therefore ought the woman to have power on her head, because of the Angels. 10 For this cause ought the woman to have authority on her head because of the angels. [power: that is a covering in sign that she is under the power of her husband]
11:11 11 Nevertheless neither the man is without the woman, neither the woman is without [the] man, in the Lord. 11 Nevertheless, neither is the man without the woman, neither the woman without the man in the Lord. 11 Nevertheless, neither is the man without the woman, neither the woman without the man in the Lord. 11 Nevertheless neither is the man without the woman, neither the woman without the man, in the Lord.
11:12 12 For why as the woman is of the man, so [and] the man is by the woman; but all things be of God. 12 For as the woman is of the man, even so is the man by the woman: but all is of God. 12 For as the woman is of the man, so is the man also by the woman: but all things are of God. 12 For as the woman is from the man, even so is the man also by the woman; but all things from God.
11:13 13 Deem ye yourselves; beseemeth it a woman not covered on the head to pray to God? [Ye yourselves deem; becometh, or beseemeth, it a woman not veiled, or covered, to pray to God?] 13 Judge in yourselves whether it be comely that a woman pray unto God bareheaded. 13 Judge in yourselves, Is it comely that a woman pray unto God uncovered? 13 Judge in yourselves: is it seemly that a woman should pray to God uncovered?
11:14 14 Neither the nature itself teacheth us [that] , for if a man nourish long hair, it is shame to him; [Neither the kind itself teacheth us that, for if a man nourish long hair, it is evil fame to him;] 14 Or else doth not nature teach you, that it is a shame for a man, if he have long hair: 14 Doeth not nature itself teach you, that if a man have long hair, it is a shame unto him? 14 Doth not even nature itself teach you, that, if a man hath long hair, it is a shame to him?
11:15 15 but if a woman nourish long hair, it is glory to her, for hairs be given to her for covering. 15 and a praise to a woman if she have long hair? For her hair is given her to cover her withal. 15 But if a woman have long hair, it is a praise unto her: for her hair is given her for a covering. 15 But if a woman hath long hair, it is a glory to her: for her hair is given her for a covering. [covering: or, veil]
11:16 16 But if any man is seen to be full of strife, we have none such custom, neither the church of God. 16 If there be any man among you that lusteth to strive, let him know that we have no such customs, neither the congregations of God. 16 But if any man lust to be contentious, we have no such custom, neither the Churches of God. 16 But if any man seemeth to be contentious, we have no such custom, neither the churches of God.
11:17 17 But this thing I command, not praising, that ye come together not into the better, but into the worse. 17 This I warn you of, and commend not that ye come together after a worse manner, and not after a better. [not after a better manner but after a worse.] 17 Now in this that I declare, I praise you not, that ye come together, not with profit, but with hurt. 17 Now in this that I declare to you I praise you not, that ye come together not for the better, but for the worse.
11:18 18 First for when ye come together into the church, I hear that dissensions be, and in part I believe [I hear that partings, or dissensions, be, and of part I believe] . 18 First of all when ye come together in the congregation, I hear that there is dissension among you: And I partly believe it. 18 For first of all, when ye come together in the Church, I hear that there are dissentions among you: and I believe it to be true in some part. 18 For first of all, when ye come together in the church, I hear that there are divisions among you; and I partly believe it. [divisions: or, schisms]
11:19 19 For it behooveth heresies to be, that they that be approved, be openly known in you. [+For why it behooveth heresies to be, that they the which be proved, be made known to you.] 19 For there must be sects among you, that they which among you are perfect might be known. 19 For there must be heresies even among you, that they which are approved among you, might be known. 19 For there must be also heresies among you, that they who are approved may be become evident among you. [heresies: or, sects]
11:20 20 Therefore when ye come together into one, now it is not to eat the Lord's supper; 20 When ye come together in one place, a man cannot eat the Lord's supper. 20 When ye come together therefore into one place, this is not to eat the Lord's Supper. 20 When therefore ye come together in one place, this is not to eat the Lord's supper. [this...: or, ye cannot eat]
11:21 21 for why each man before taketh his supper to eat, and one is hungry, and another is drunken. 21 For every man beginneth afore to eat his own supper. And one is hungry, and another is drunken. 21 For every man when they should eat, taketh his own supper afore, and one is hungry, and another is drunken. 21 For in eating every one taketh before another his own supper: and one is hungry, and another is drunk.
11:22 22 Whether ye have not houses [for] to eat and drink, or ye despise the church of God, and confound them that have none? What shall I say to you? I praise you, but herein I praise you not. [+Whether ye have not houses for to eat and drink, or ye despise the church of God, and confound, or shame, them that have not? What shall I say to you? I praise you; in this thing I praise you not.] 22 Have ye not houses to eat and to drink in? Or else despise ye the congregation of God? and shame them that have not? what shall I say unto you? shall I praise you? in this praise I you not. 22 Have ye not houses to eat and to drink in? despise ye the Church of God, and shame them that have not? what shall I say to you? shall I praise you in this? I praise you not. 22 What? have ye not houses to eat and to drink in? or despise ye the church of God, and shame them that have not? What shall I say to you? shall I praise you in this? I praise you not. [have not: or, are poor?]
11:23 23 For I have taken of the Lord that thing, which [and] I have betaken to you. For the Lord Jesus, in what night he was betrayed, took bread, 23 That which I gave [I delivered] unto you I received of the Lord. For the Lord Jesus the same night in the which he was betrayed, took bread: 23 For I have received of the Lord that which I also have delivered unto you, to wit, That the Lord Jesus in the night when [that] he was betrayed, took bread: 23 For I have received from the Lord that which also I delivered to you, That the Lord Jesus the same night in which he was betrayed took bread:
11:24 24 and did thankings, and brake, and said [and doing graces, or thanks, he brake, and said] , Take ye, and eat ye; this is my body, which shall be betrayed for you; do ye this thing into my mind. 24 and thanked and brake, and said: Take ye, and eat ye this is my body which is broken for you. This do ye in the remembrance of me. 24 And when he had given thanks, he brake it, and said, Take, eat: this is my body, which is broken for you: this do ye in remembrance of me. 24 And when he had given thanks, he broke it, and said, Take, eat: this is my body, which is broken for you: this do in remembrance of me. [in...: or, for a remembrance]
11:25 25 Also the cup, after that he had supped, and said [Also and he took the cup, after he had supped, saying] , This cup is the new testament in my blood; do ye this thing, as oft as ye shall drink [it] , into my mind. 25 After the same manner he took the cup when supper was done saying: This cup is the new testament in my blood, this do as oft as ye drink it, in the remembrance of me. 25 After the same manner also he took the cup, when he had supped, saying, This cup is the New Testament in my blood: this do as oft as ye drink it, in remembrance of me. 25 After the same manner also he took the cup, when he had supped, saying, This cup is the new testament in my blood: this do ye, as often as ye drink it, in remembrance of me.
11:26 26 For as oft as ye shall eat this bread, and drink this cup, ye shall tell the death of the Lord, till that he come [ye shall show the death of the Lord, till he come] . 26 For as often as ye shall eat this bread, and drink this cup, ye shall shew the Lord's death, till he come. 26 For as often as ye shall eat this bread, and drink this cup, ye shew the Lord's death til he come. 26 For as often as ye eat this bread, and drink this cup, ye do show the Lord's death till he shall come. [ye do...: or, shew ye]
11:27 27 Therefore whoever eateth the bread, or drinketh the cup of the Lord unworthily, he shall be guilty of the body and of the blood of the Lord. [And so whoever shall eat the bread, or drink the cup of the Lord unworthily, he shall be guilty of the body and blood of the Lord.] 27 Wherefore whosoever shall eat of this bread, or drink of the cup unworthily, shall be guilty of the body and blood of the Lord. 27 Wherefore, whosoever shall eat this bread, and drink the cup of the Lord unworthily, shall be guilty of the body and blood of the Lord. 27 Therefore whoever shall eat this bread, and drink this cup of the Lord, unworthily, shall be guilty of the body and blood of the Lord.
11:28 28 But prove a man himself, and so eat he of that bread, and drink he of the cup [and drink of the cup] . 28 Let a man therefore examine himself, and so let him eat of the bread and drink of the cup. 28 Let every [a] man therefore examine himself, and so let him eat of this bread, and drink of this cup. 28 But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of that bread, and drink of that cup.
11:29 29 For he that eateth and drinketh unworthily, eateth and drinketh doom to him [self] [eateth and drinketh doom, or damnation, to himself] , not wisely deeming the body of the Lord. 29 For he that eateth or drinketh unworthily, eateth and drinketh his own damnation, because he maketh no difference of the Lord's [lordis] body. 29 For he that eateth and drinketh unworthily, eateth and drinketh his own damnation, because he discerneth not the Lord's body. 29 For he that eateth and drinketh unworthily, eateth and drinketh judgment to himself, not discerning the Lord's body. [damnation: or, judgment]
11:30 30 Therefore among you many be sick and feeble, and many sleep. [+Therefore among you many be sick and unstrong, or feeble, and many sleep, or die.] 30 For this cause many are weak and sick among you, and many sleep. 30 For this cause many are weak, and sick among you, and many sleep. 30 For this cause many are weak and sickly among you, and many sleep.
11:31 31 And if we deemed wisely us selves [For if we deemed wisely ourselves] , we should not be deemed; 31 If we had truly judged ourselves, we should not have been judged. 31 For if we would judge ourselves, we should not be judged. 31 For if we would judge ourselves, we should not be judged.
11:32 32 but while we be deemed of the Lord, we be chastised, that we be not condemned with this world. 32 [But] When we are judged of the Lord we are chastened, because we should not be damned with the world. 32 But when we are judged, we are chastened of the Lord, because we should not be condemned with the world. 32 But when we are judged, we are chastened by the Lord, that we should not be condemned with the world.
11:33 33 Therefore, my brethren, when ye come together to eat, abide ye together. 33 Wherefore my brethren, when ye come together [togedder] to eat, tarry one for another. 33 Wherefore, my brethren, when ye come together to eat, tarry one for another. 33 Therefore, my brethren, when ye come together to eat, tarry one for another.
11:34 34 If any man hungereth [If any man hunger] , eat he at home, that ye come not together into doom. And I shall dispose other things, when I come. 34 If any man hunger, let him eat at home, that ye come not together unto condemnation. Other things will I set in order when I come. 34 And if any man be hungry, let him eat at home, that ye come not together unto condemnation. Other things will I set in order when I come. 34 And if any man is hungry, let him eat at home; that ye come not together to judgment. And the rest will I set in order when I come. [condemnation: or, judgment]
12:1 1 But of spiritual things, brethren, I will not that ye not know [I will not you to unknow] . 1 In spiritual things brethren I would not have you ignorant. 1 Now concerning spiritual gifts, brethren, I would not have you ignorant. 1 Now concerning spiritual gifts, brethren, I would not have you ignorant.
12:2 2 For ye know, that when ye were heathen men, how ye were led going to dumb maumets. [Soothly ye know, for when ye were heathen men, as ye were led going to dumb simulacra.] 2 Ye know that ye were gentiles, {Heithen} and went your ways unto dumb idols, even as ye were led. 2 Ye know that ye were Gentiles, and were carried away unto the dumb Idols, as ye were led. 2 Ye know that ye were Gentiles, carried away to these dumb idols, even as ye were led.
12:3 3 Therefore I make known to you, that no man speaking in the Spirit of God, saith parting from Jesus; and no man may say the Lord Jesus [is] , but in the Holy Ghost. 3 Wherefore I declare unto you that no man speaking in {thorow} the spirit of God defieth Jesus. Also no man can say that Jesus is the Lord: but by the holy ghost. 3 Wherefore, I declare unto you, that no man speaking by the Spirit of God calleth Jesus execrable: also no man can say that Jesus is the Lord, but by the holy Ghost. 3 Therefore I give you to understand, that no man speaking by the Spirit of God calleth Jesus accursed: and that no man can say that Jesus is the Lord, but by the Holy Spirit. [accursed: or, anathema]
12:4 4 And diverse graces there be, but it is all one Spirit [but the same Spirit is] ; 4 There are diversities of gifts verily, yet but one spirit. 4 Now there are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit. 4 Now there are varieties of gifts, but the same Spirit.
12:5 5 and diverse services there be, but it is all one Lord; [and partings of servings be, but the same Lord is;] 5 And there are differences of administrations, and yet but one Lord. 5 And there are diversities of administrations, but the same Lord, 5 And there are varieties of administrations, but the same Lord. [administrations: or, ministries]
12:6 6 and diverse workings there be, but it is all one God [and partings of workings be, but the same God is] , that worketh all things in all things. 6 And there are divers manners of operations, and yet but one God, which worketh all things that are wrought in all creatures. 6 And there are diversities of operations, but God is the same which worketh all in all. 6 And there are varieties of operations, but it is the same God who worketh all in all.
12:7 7 And to each man the showing of Spirit is given to profit. 7 The gifts of the spirit are given to every man to profit the congregation. 7 But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man, to profit withal. 7 But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man for profit of all.
12:8 8 And the word of wisdom is given to one by Spirit [To another forsooth by Spirit the word of wisdom is given] ; to another the word of knowing, by the same Spirit; 8 To one [won] is given [through the spirit] the utterance of wisdom: to another is given the utterance of knowledge by {according to} the same spirit: 8 For to one is given by the Spirit the word of wisdom: and to another the word of knowledge, by the same Spirit: 8 For to one is given by the Spirit the word of wisdom; to another the word of knowledge by the same Spirit;
12:9 9 faith to another, in the same Spirit; to another, grace of healings [+grace of healths/grace of heals] , in one Spirit; 9 to another is given faith, by the same spirit. To another the gifts of healing, by the same spirit. 9 And to another is given faith by the same Spirit: and to another the gifts of healing, by the same Spirit: 9 To another faith by the same Spirit; to another the gifts of healing by the same Spirit;
12:10 10 to another, the working of works of power; to another, prophecy; to another, very knowing of spirits; to another, kinds of languages; to another, expounding of words. [to another, the working of virtues; to another, prophecy; to another, discretion, or very knowing, of spirits; to another, kinds of tongues, or languages; to another, interpreting, or expounding, of words.] 10 To another power to do miracles: To another prophecy; To another judgement of spirits; {judgement to discern spirits} To another divers tongues: To another the interpretation of tongues: 10 And to another the operations of great works: and to another, prophecy: and to another, the discerning of spirits: and to another, diversities of tongues: and to another, the interpretation of tongues. 10 To another the working of miracles; to another prophecy; to another discerning of spirits; to another various kinds of tongues; to another the interpretation of tongues:
12:11 11 And one and the same Spirit worketh all these things [Forsooth all these things one and the same Spirit worketh] , parting to each by themselves as he will. 11 and these all worketh even the self same spirit, dividing to every man several gifts even as he will. {These all doth the same onely spirit work, and distributeth unto every man, according as he will} 11 And all these things worketh one and [worketh even] the selfsame Spirit, distributing to every man severally as he will. 11 But all these worketh that one and the very same Spirit, dividing to every man individually as he will.
12:12 12 For as there is one body, and hath many members, and all the members of the body when those be many [when they be many] , be one body, so also Christ. 12 For as the body is one, and hath many members, and {nevertheless} all the members of one body though they be many, yet are but one body: even so is Christ. 12 For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of the body, which is one, though they be many, yet are but one body: even so is Christ. 12 For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of that one body, being many, are one body: so also is Christ.
12:13 13 For in one Spirit all we be baptized into one body, either Jews, either heathen, either servants, either free; and all we be filled with drink in one Spirit. [And soothly in one Spirit all we be baptized into one body, either Jews, or heathen, or servants, or free; and all we have drunk in one Spirit.] 13 For in one spirit are we all baptised to make one body, whether we be jews or gentiles: whether we be bond or free, and have all drunk of one spirit. 13 For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether we be Jews, or Grecians, whether we be bond, or free, and have been all made to drink into one Spirit. 13 For by one Spirit were we all baptized into one body, whether Jews or Gentiles, whether bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit. [Gentiles: Gr. Greeks]
12:14 14 For the body is not one member, but many. 14 For the body is not one member, but many. 14 For the body also is not one member, but many. 14 For the body is not one member, but many.
12:15 15 If the foot shall say, For I am not the hand, I am not of the body; not therefore it is not of the body [not therefore is it not of the body(?)] . 15 If the foot say: I am not the hand, therefore I am not {a member} of the body: is he therefore not {a member} of the body? 15 If the foot would say, Because I am not the hand, I am not of the body, is it therefore not of the body? 15 If the foot shall say, Because I am not the hand, I am not of the body; is it therefore not of the body?
12:16 16 And if the ear saith [And if the ear shall say] , For I am not the eye, I am not of the body; not therefore it is not of the body [not therefore is it not of the body(?)] . 16 and if the ear say I am not the eye: therefore I am not {a member} of the body: is he therefore not {a member} of the body? 16 And if the ear would say, Because I am not the eye, I am not of the body, is it therefore not of the body? 16 And if the ear shall say, Because I am not the eye, I am not of the body; is it therefore not of the body?
12:17 17 If all the body is the eye [If all the body were the eye] , where is [the] hearing? and if all the body is hearing, where is [the] smelling? 17 if all the body were an eye: where were then the ear? if all were hearing: where were the {where then the} smelling? 17 If the whole body were an eye, where were the hearing? If the whole were hearing, where were the smelling? 17 If the whole body were an eye, where were the hearing? If the whole were hearing, where were the smelling?
12:18 18 But now God hath set members, and each of them in the body, as he would. 18 But now hath God disposed {set} the members, every one of them {one severally} in the body, at his own pleasure. 18 But now hath God disposed the members every one of them in the body at his own pleasure. 18 But now hath God set the members every one of them in the body, as it hath pleased him.
12:19 19 And if all were one member, where were the body? 19 If they were all one member: where were the body? 19 For if they were all one member, where were the body? 19 And if they were all one member, where were the body?
12:20 20 But now there be many members, but one body. 20 Now are there many members, yet but one body. 20 But now are there many members, yet but one body. 20 But now are they many members, yet but one body.
12:21 21 And the eye may not say to the hand [Forsooth the eye shall not be able to say to the hand] , I have no need to thy works; or again the head to the feet, Ye be not necessary to me. 21 And the eye cannot say unto the hand: I have no need of thee: nor the head also to the feet: I have no need of you. 21 And the eye can not say unto the hand, I have no need of thee: nor the head again to the feet, I have no need of you. 21 And the eye cannot say to the hand, I have no need of thee: nor again the head to the feet, I have no need of you.
12:22 22 But much more those that be seen to be the lower members of the body [But much more those that be seen to be more sick, or lower, members of the body] , be more needful; 22 Yea rather a great deal those members of the body which seem to be most feeble, are most necessary. 22 Yea, much rather those members of the body, which seem to be more feeble, are necessary. 22 Nay, much more those members of the body, which seem to be more feeble, are necessary:
12:23 23 and those that we guess to be the unworthier members of the body, to them we give more honour; and those members that be unseemly, have more seemliness. [+and to them that we guess to be unnobler members of the body, we give more honour about; and those members that be unhonest, have more honesty.] 23 And upon those members of that body which we think least honest, put we most honesty on. And our ungoodly {uncomely} parts [?later editions have:ungodly parties] have most beauty on. 23 And upon those members of the body, which we think most unhonest, put we more honesty on: and our uncomely parts have more comeliness on. 23 And those members of the body, which we think to be less honourable, upon these we bestow more abundant honour; and our uncomely parts have more abundant comeliness. [bestow: or, put on]
12:24 24 For our seemly members have need of none; but God tempered the body, giving more honour to it, to whom it failed, [Forsooth our honest members of none have need; but God tempered the body, giving more worship to it, to whom it failed,] 24 For our honest members need it not: but God hath so disposed {measured} the body, and hath given most honour to that part which lacked, {member which had need} 24 For our comely parts need it not: but God hath tempered the body together, and hath given the more honor to that part which lacked, 24 For our comely parts have no need: but God hath tempered the body together, having given more abundant honour to that part which lacked:
12:25 25 that debate be not in the body, but that the members be busy into the same thing each for other [but that the members be busy into the same thing for each other] . 25 lest there should be any strife in the body: but that the members should indifferently care for one another. 25 Lest there should be any division in the body: but that the members should have the same care one for another. 25 That there should be no schism in the body; but that the members should have the same care one for another. [schism: or, division]
12:26 26 And if one member suffereth any thing [And if one member suffer any thing] , all members suffer therewith; either if one member joyeth [either if one member glorieth] , all members joy together. 26 And if one member suffer all suffer with him: if one member be had in honour, all members be glad also. 26 Therefore if one member suffer, all suffer with it: if one member be had in honor, all the members rejoice with it. 26 And if one member suffer, all the members suffer with it; or if one member is honoured, all the members rejoice with it.
12:27 27 And ye be the body of Christ, and members of member. [Forsooth ye be the body of Christ, and members of members.] 27 Ye are the body of Christ, and members one of another. 27 Now ye are the body of Christ, and members for your part. 27 Now ye are the body of Christ, and members in particular.
12:28 28 But God set some men in the church, first apostles, the second time prophets [And soothly God put some in the church, first apostles, the second prophets] , the third teachers, afterward works of power, afterward graces of healings, helpings, governings, kinds of languages, interpretations of words. 28 And God hath also ordained in the congregation, first the apostles, secondarily prophets, thirdly teachers, then them that do {doers of} miracles, after that, the gifts of healing, helpers, governors, diversity of tongues. 28 And God hath ordained some in the Church: as first Apostles, secondly Prophets, thirdly teachers, then them that do miracles: after that, the gifts of healing, helpers, governors, diversity of tongues. 28 And God hath set some in the church, first apostles, second prophets, third teachers, then miracles, then gifts of healings, helps, governments, various kinds of tongues. [diversities: or, kinds]
12:29 29 Whether all [be] apostles? whether all [be] prophets? Whether all teachers? whether all works of power? 29 Are all apostles? are all prophets? Are all teachers? are all doers of miracles? 29 Are all Apostles? are all Prophets? are all teachers? 29 Are all apostles? are all prophets? are all teachers? are all workers of miracles? [workers...: or, powers?]
12:30 30 whether all have grace of healings? whether all speak with languages? whether all expound [whether all interpret, or expound] ? 30 have all the gifts of healing? Do all speak with tongues? do all interpret? 30 Are all doers of miracles? Have all the gifts of healing? Do all speak with tongues? Do all interpret? 30 Have all the gifts of healing? do all speak with tongues? do all interpret?
12:31 31 But follow ye the better ghostly gifts. And yet I show to you a more excellent way. 31 Covet after the best gifts. And yet shew I unto you a more excellent way. 31 But desire you the best gifts, and I will yet shew you a more excellent way. 31 But covet earnestly the best gifts: and yet I show to you a more excellent way.
13:1 1 If I speak with tongues of men and of angels, and I have not charity, I am made as brass sounding, or a cymbal tinkling. 1 Though I spake with the tongues of men and angels, and yet had no love, I were even as sounding brass: and [or] as a tinkling cymbal. 1 Though I speak with the tongues of men and Angels, and have not love, I am as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal. 1 Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal.
13:2 2 And if I have prophecy, and know all mysteries, and all knowing [and all knowing, or science] , and if I have all faith, so that I move hills from their place [so that I bear over hills from one place to another] , and I have not charity, I am nought. 2 And though I could prophesy, and understood all secrets, and all knowledge: yea, if I had all faith so that I could move mountains out of their places, and yet had no love, I were nothing. 2 And though I had the gift of prophecy, and knew all secrets and all knowledge, yea, if I had all faith, so that I could remove mountains and had not love, I were nothing. 2 And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing.
13:3 3 And if I part all my goods into the meats of poor men, and if I betake my body, so that I burn, and if I have not charity, it profiteth to me nothing. 3 And though I bestowed all my goods to feed the poor, and though I gave my body even that I burned, and yet had no love, it profiteth me nothing. 3 And though I feed the poor with all my goods, and though I give my body, that I be burned, and have not love, it profiteth me nothing. 3 And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity, it profiteth me nothing.
13:4 4 Charity is patient, it is benign; charity envieth not, it doeth not wickedly, it is not blown [it is not in-blown with pride] , 4 Love suffereth long, {is patient} and is courteous. Love envieth not. Love doth not frowardly, swelleth not, {is not puft up} 4 Love suffereth long: it is bountiful: love envieth not: love doeth not boast itself: it is not puffed up: 4 Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up, [vaunteth...: or, is not rash]
13:5 5 it is not covetous [of worships] , it seeketh not those things that be his own [it seeketh not those things that be her own] , it is not stirred to wrath, it thinketh not evil, 5 dealeth not dishonestly, seeketh not her own, is not provoked to anger, thinketh not evil 5 It doeth no uncomely thing: [It disdaineth not:] it seeketh not her own things: it is not provoked to anger: it thinketh not evil: 5 Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not its own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil;
13:6 6 it joyeth not on wickedness, but it joyeth together to truth; [it joyeth not in wickedness, forsooth it joyeth together with truth;] 6 rejoiceth not in {over} iniquity: but rejoiceth in the truth, 6 It rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth: 6 Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth; [in the truth: or, with the truth]
13:7 7 it suffereth all things, it believeth all things, it hopeth all things, it sustaineth all things. 7 suffereth {beareth} all things, believeth all things hopeth all things, endureth in {suffereth} all things. 7 It suffereth all things: it believeth all things: it hopeth all things: it endureth all things. 7 Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.
13:8 8 Charity falleth never down, whether prophecies shall be voided, either languages shall cease, either science shall be destroyed [whether prophecies shall be voided, or languages shall cease, or science shall be destroyed] . 8 Though that prophesying fail, or tongues shall cease, or knowledge vanish away: {knowledge perish} yet love falleth never away. 8 Love doeth never fall away, though that prophesyings be abolished, or the tongues cease, or knowledge vanish away. 8 Charity never faileth: but whether there are prophecies, they shall be done away; whether there are tongues, they shall cease; whether there is knowledge, it shall vanish away. [fail: Gr. vanish away]
13:9 9 For a part we know, and a part we prophesy; [For of part we know, and of part we prophesy;] 9 For our knowledge is unperfect, and our prophesying is unperfect: 9 For we know in part, and we prophesy in part. 9 For we know in part, and we prophesy in part.
13:10 10 but when that shall come that is perfect, that thing that is of part shall be voided. 10 but when that which is perfect is come: then that which is unperfect shall be done away. 10 But when that which is perfect, is come, then that which is in part, shall be abolished. 10 But when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done away. [done away: Gr. vanish away]
13:11 11 When I was a little child, I spake as a little child, I understood as a little child, I thought as a little child; but when I was made a man, I voided those things that were of a little child. 11 When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I imagined as a child: but as soon as I was a man I put away childishness. 11 When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things. 11 When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things. [thought: or, reasoned] [put away: Gr. vanish away]
13:12 12 And we see now [Forsooth we see now] by a mirror in darkness, but then face to face; now I know of part, but then I shall know, as [and] I am known. 12 Now we see in {thorow} a glass even in a dark speaking: but then shall we see face to face. Now I know unperfectly: but then shall I know even as I am known. 12 For now we see through a glass darkly: but then shall we see face to face. Now I know in part: but then shall I know even as I am known. 12 For now we see in a mirror, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known. [darkly: Gr. in a riddle]
13:13 13 And now dwelleth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the most of these is charity. 13 Now abideth faith, hope, and love, even these three: but the chief {greatest} of these is love. 13 And now abideth faith, hope and love, even these three: but the chiefest of these is love. 13 And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity.
14:1 1 Follow ye charity, love ye spiritual things, but more that ye prophesy. 1 Labour for love, and covet spiritual gifts: and most chiefly for to prophesy. 1 Follow after love, and covet spiritual gifts, and rather that ye may prophesy. 1 Follow after charity, and desire spiritual gifts, but rather that ye may prophesy.
14:2 2 And he that speaketh in tongue, speaketh not to men, but to God; for no man heareth. But the Spirit speaketh mysteries. 2 For he that speaketh with tongues speaketh not unto men, but unto God. [For] No man heareth him: For [Howbeit] in the spirit he speaketh mysteries. 2 For he that speaketh a strange tongue, speaketh not unto men, but unto God: for no man heareth him: howbeit in the spirit he speaketh secret things. 2 For he that speaketh in an unknown tongue speaketh not to men, but to God: for no man understandeth him; yet in the spirit he speaketh mysteries. [understandeth: Gr. heareth]
14:3 3 For he that prophesieth, speaketh to men to edification, and admonishing, and comforting. 3 But he that prophesieth speaketh unto men, for their [to] edifying, [to exhortation] and [to] comfort. 3 But he that prophesieth, speaketh unto men to edifying, and to exhortation, and to comfort. 3 But he that prophesieth speaketh to men to edification, and exhortation, and comfort.
14:4 4 He that speaketh in tongue, edifieth himself; but he that prophesieth, edifieth the church of God. 4 He that speaketh with tongues, profiteth himself: he that prophesieth edifieth the congregation. 4 He that speaketh strange language, edifieth himself: but he that prophesieth, edifieth the Church. 4 He that speaketh in an unknown tongue edifieth himself; but he that prophesieth edifieth the church.
14:5 5 And I will, that all ye speak in tongues, but more that ye prophesy. For he that prophesieth, is more than he that speaketh in languages; but peradventure he expound, that the church take edification. [+Forsooth I will you all to speak in tongues, but more that ye prophesy. For why he that prophesieth, is more than he that speaketh with tongues, or languages; but peradventure he interpret, or declare, that the church take edification.] 5 I would that ye all spake with tongues: but rather that ye prophesied. For greater is he that prophesieth, than he that speaketh with tongues, except he expound it also, that the congregation may have edifying. 5 I would that ye all spake strange languages, but rather that ye prophesied: for greater is he that prophesieth, than he that speaketh divers tongues, except he expound it, that the Church may receive edification. 5 I would that ye all spoke with tongues, but rather that ye prophesied: for greater is he that prophesieth than he that speaketh with tongues, except he interpret, that the church may receive edifying.
14:6 6 But now, brethren, if I come to you, and speak in tongues, what shall I profit to you, but if I speak to you either in revelation, either in science, either in prophecy, either in teaching? [+Now forsooth, brethren, if I come to you, speaking with tongues, what shall I profit/what shall it profit to you, but if I shall speak to you either in revelation, or in science, or in prophecy, or in teaching?] 6 Now brethren if I come unto you speaking with tongues: what shall I profit you? except I speak unto [to] you, either by revelation, or knowledge, or prophesying, or doctrine. 6 And now, brethren, if I come unto you speaking divers tongues, what shall I profit you, except I speak to you, either by revelation, or by knowledge, or by prophesying, or by doctrine? 6 Now, brethren, if I come to you speaking with tongues, what shall I profit you, except I shall speak to you either by revelation, or by knowledge, or by prophesying, or by doctrine?
14:7 7 For those things that be without soul, and giveth voices, either pipe, either harp, but those give distinction of soundings, how shall it be known that that is sung, either that that is trumpeted. [+Nevertheless those things that be without soul, or life, giving voices, either pipe, or harp, but if they shall give distinction of soundings, how shall it be known, that is sung, or that that is harped.] 7 Moreover when things without life give sound: whether it be a pipe, or an harp: except they make a distinction in the sounds: how shall it be known what is piped or harped? 7 Moreover things without life which give a sound, whether it be a pipe or an harp, except they make a distinction in the sounds, how shall it be known what is piped or harped? 7 And even things without life giving sound, whether pipe or harp, except they give a distinction in the sounds, how shall it be known what is piped or harped? [sounds: or, tunes]
14:8 8 For if a trumpet give an uncertain sound [For why if the trump give uncertain voice] , who shall make himself ready to battle? 8 And also if the trumpet give an uncertain voice, {sound} who shall prepare himself to fight? {the battle} 8 And also if the trumpet give an uncertain sound, who shall prepare himself to battle? 8 For if the trumpet shall give an uncertain sound, who shall prepare himself for battle?
14:9 9 So [and] but ye give an open word by tongue, how shall that that is said be known? For ye shall be speaking in vain [+For ye shall be speaking in the air/Soothly ye shall be speaking into the airs, or firmament,] . 9 Even so likewise when ye speak with tongues, except ye speak words that have signification, {plain words} how shall it be understood {known} what is spoken? For ye shall but speak in the air. 9 So likewise you, by the tongue, except ye utter words that have signification, how shall it be understood [understand] what is spoken? for ye shall speak in the air. 9 So likewise ye, except ye utter by the tongue words easy to be understood, how shall it be known what is spoken? for ye shall speak into the air. [easy...: Gr. significant]
14:10 10 There be many kinds of languages in this world, and nothing is without voice. [as so many kinds of tongues, or languages, be in this world, and nothing is without voice.] 10 Many kinds of voices are in the world, and none of them are {is} without signification. 10 There are so many kinds of voices (as it cometh to pass) in the world, and none of them is dumb. 10 There are, it may be, so many kinds of voices in the world, and none of them is without signification.
14:11 11 But if I know not the virtue of a voice [Therefore if I know not the virtue of voice] , I shall be to him, to whom I shall speak, a barbaric; and he that speaketh to me, shall be a barbaric. 11 If I know not what the voice meaneth, I shall be unto him that speaketh an alien: and he that speaketh shall be an alien unto me. 11 Except I know then the power of the voice, I shall be unto him that speaketh a barbarian, and he that speaketh, shall be a barbarian unto me. 11 Therefore if I know not the meaning of the voice, I shall be to him that speaketh a barbarian, and he that speaketh shall be a barbarian to me.
14:12 12 So ye, for ye be lovers of spirits, seek ye that ye be plenteous to edification of the church. [+So and ye, for ye be lovers of spirits, that is, of ghostly gifts, to the edification of the church seek that ye be plenteous.] 12 Even so ye (forasmuch as ye covet spiritual gifts) seek that ye may have plenty unto the edifying of the congregation. 12 Even so, forasmuch as ye covet spiritual gifts, seek that ye may excel unto the edifying of the Church. 12 Even so ye, forasmuch as ye are zealous of spiritual gifts, seek that ye may excel to the edifying of the church. [of spiritual gifts: Gr. of spirits]
14:13 13 And therefore he that speaketh in language, pray, that he expound. [And therefore he that speaketh in tongue, pray, that he interpret, or expound.] 13 Wherefore let him that speaketh with tongues, pray that he may interpret also. 13 Wherefore, let him that speaketh a strange tongue, pray, that he may interpret. 13 Therefore let him that speaketh in an unknown tongue pray that he may interpret.
14:14 14 For if I pray in tongue, my spirit prayeth; mine understanding is without fruit. [For why if I pray in tongue, my spirit prayeth; forsooth my mind, or reason, is without fruit.] 14 If I pray with tongues, my spirit prayeth: but my mind is without fruit. {my understanding bringeth no man fruit} 14 For if I pray in a strange tongue, my spirit prayeth: but mine understanding is without fruit. 14 For if I pray in an unknown tongue, my spirit prayeth, but my understanding is unfruitful.
14:15 15 What then? I shall pray in spirit, I shall pray [and] in mind; I shall say psalm in spirit, I shall say psalm also in mind. 15 What is it then? {Namely thus:} I will pray with my [the] spirit, and will pray with my [the] mind {understanding} also. I will sing {sing Psalms} with my [the] spirit, and will sing with my [the] mind also. {the understanding also} 15 What is it then? I will pray with the spirit, but I will pray with the understanding also: I will sing with the spirit, but I will sing with the understanding also. 15 What is it then? I will pray with the spirit, and I will pray with the understanding also: I will sing with the spirit, and I will sing with the understanding also.
14:16 16 For if thou blessest in spirit, who filleth the place of an unlearned man, how shall he say Amen on thy blessing, for he knoweth not, what thou sayest? [+For why if thou shalt bless in spirit, who filleth the place of an idiot, or unlearned man, how shall he say Amen upon thy blessing, for he knoweth not, what thou sayest?] 16 For else when thou blessest {givest thanks} with the spirit, how shall he that occupieth the room of the unlearned say amen at thy giving of thanks? seeing he understandeth not {knoweth not} what thou sayest? 16 Else, when thou blessest with the spirit, how shall he that occupieth the room of the unlearned, say Amen, at thy giving of thanks, seeing he knoweth not what thou sayest? 16 Else when thou shalt bless with the spirit, how shall he that occupieth the place of the unlearned say Amen at thy giving of thanks, seeing he understandeth not what thou sayest?
14:17 17 For thou [soothly] doest well thankings, but another man is not edified. [For why thou soothly doest well graces, or thankings, but another is not edified.] 17 Thou verily givest thanks well: but the other is not edified. 17 For thou verily givest thanks well, but the other is not edified. 17 For thou verily givest thanks well, but the other is not edified.
14:18 18 I thank my God, for I speak in the language of all you; [I do graces to my God, for I speak in the tongue of all you;] 18 I thank my God, I speak with tongues more than ye all. 18 I thank my God, I speak languages more than ye all. 18 I thank my God, I speak with tongues more than ye all:
14:19 19 but in the church I will speak five words in my wit, that also I teach other men, than ten thousand words in tongue [than ten thousands of words in tongue not understood] . 19 Yet had I lever in the congregation to speak five words with my mind to the information of other, {my understanding that I may enform other also} [others] rather than ten thousand words with the tongue. 19 Yet had I rather in the Church to speak five words with mine understanding, that I might also instruct others, than ten thousand words in a strange tongue. 19 Yet in the church I had rather speak five words with my understanding, that by my voice I may teach others also, than ten thousand words in an unknown tongue.
14:20 20 Brethren, do not ye be made children in wits, but in malice be ye children; but in wits be ye perfect. 20 Brethren, be not children in wit: {understanding} [Howbeit] as concerning maliciousness be children: but in wit {understanding} be perfect. 20 Brethren, be not children in understanding, but as concerning maliciousness be children, but in understanding be of a ripe age. 20 Brethren, be not children in understanding: yet in malice be ye children, but in understanding be men. [men: Gr. perfect, or, of a ripe age]
14:21 21 For in the law it is written, That in other tongues and other lips I shall speak to this people, and neither so they shall hear me, saith the Lord. 21 In the law it is written, with other tongues, and with other lips will I speak unto this people, and yet for all that will they not hear me saith the Lord. 21 In the Law it is written, By men of other tongues, and by other languages will I speak unto this people: yet so shall they not hear me, saith the Lord. 21 In the law it is written, With men of other tongues and other lips will I speak to this people; and yet for all that will they not hear me, saith the Lord.
14:22 22 Therefore languages be into token, not to faithful men, but to men out of the faith; but prophecies be not to men out of the faith, but to faithful men. 22 Wherefore tongues are for a sign, {token} not to them that believe: but to them that believe not. Contrariwise prophesying serveth not for them that believe not: but for them which believe. 22 Wherefore strange tongues are for a sign, not to them that believe, but to them that believe not: but prophesying serveth not for them that believe not, but for them which believe. 22 Therefore tongues are for a sign, not to them that believe, but to them that believe not: but prophesying serveth not for them that believe not, but for them who believe.
14:23 23 Therefore if all the church come together into one, and all men speak in tongues, if unlearned men, either men out of the faith enter, whether they shall not say [soothly if idiots enter, or men out of the faith, whether they say not] , What be ye mad? 23 If therefore when all the congregation is come together, and all speak with tongues, there come in they that are unlearned, or they which believe not: will they not say that ye are out of your wits? 23 If therefore when the whole Church is come together in one, and all speak strange tongues, there come in they that are unlearned, or they which believe not, will they not say, that ye are out of your wits? 23 If therefore the whole church is assembled in one place, and all speak with tongues, and there come in those that are unlearned, or unbelievers, will they not say that ye are mad?
14:24 24 But if all men prophesy, if any unfaithful man or unlearned man enter [Forsooth if all men prophecy, forsooth if any unfaithful man or idiot enter] , he is convicted of all, he is wisely deemed of all. 24 But and if all prophesy, and there come in one that believeth not, or one unlearned, he is reproved [rebuked] of all men, and is judged of every man: 24 But if all prophesy, and there come in one that believeth not, or one unlearned, he is rebuked of all men, and is judged of all, 24 But if all prophesy, and there come in one that believeth not, or one unlearned, he is convicted by all, he is judged by all:
14:25 25 For the hid things of his heart be known, and so he shall fall down on the face, and shall worship God [+and so he falling down on the face, shall worship God] , and show verily that God is in you. 25 and so are the secrets of his heart opened: and then [so] falleth he down on his face, and worshippeth God, and saith that God is with you indeed. {and knowledging, that of a truth God is in you} 25 And so are the secrets of his heart made manifest, and so he will fall down on his face and worship God, and say plainly that God is in you indeed. 25 And thus are the secrets of his heart made known; and so falling down on his face he will worship God, and report that God is in you in truth.
14:26 26 What then, brethren? When ye come together, each of you hath a psalm, he hath teaching, he hath apocalypse, he hath tongue, he hath expounding; all things be they done to edification. [Therefore, brethren, what is? When ye come together, each of you hath a psalm, he hath teaching, he hath apocalypse, or revelation, he hath tongue, he hath interpreting, or expounding; be all things done to edification.] 26 How is it then brethren? when ye come together every man hath his song, {psalm} hath his doctrine, hath his tongue, hath his revelation, hath his interpretation: Let all things be [done] unto edifying. 26 What is to be done then, brethren? when ye come together, according as every one of you hath a Psalm, or hath doctrine, or hath a tongue, or hath revelation, or hath interpretation, let all things be done unto edifying. 26 How is it then, brethren? when ye are assembled, each one of you hath a psalm, hath a doctrine, hath a tongue, hath a revelation, hath an interpretation. Let all things be done for edification.
14:27 27 Whether a man speaketh in tongue, by two men, either three at the most [+Whether a man speak in tongue, be this done by two men/after two, or as much three] , and by parts, that one interpret. 27 If any man speak with tongues, let it be two at once: or at the most three at once: and that by course, {one after another} and let another interpret it: 27 If any man speak a strange tongue, let it be by two, or at the most, by three, and that by course, and let one interpret. 27 If any man speaketh in an unknown tongue, let it be by two, or at the most by three, and that by course; and let one interpret. [two...: by two or three sentences separately]
14:28 28 But if there be not an interpreter, be he still in the church, and speak he to himself and to God. 28 But if there be no interpreter, let him keep silence in the congregation, and let him speak to himself, and to God. 28 But if there be no interpreter, let him keep silence in the Church, which speaketh languages, and let him speak to himself, and to God. 28 But if there is no interpreter, let him keep silence in the church; and let him speak to himself, and to God.
14:29 29 Prophets twain or three say [Soothly prophets two or three say] , and others wisely deem. 29 Let the prophets speak two at once, or three at once, and let other judge. 29 Let the Prophets speak two, or three, and let the other judge. 29 Let the prophets speak two or three, and let the others judge.
14:30 30 But if any thing be showed to a sitter, the former be still. [That if any thing shall be showed to one sitting, be the former still.] 30 If any revelation be made to another that sitteth by, let the first hold his peace. 30 And if anything be revealed to another that sitteth by, let the first hold his peace. 30 If any thing is revealed to another that sitteth by, let the first hold his peace.
14:31 31 For ye may all prophesy [For ye be able to prophesy all] , each by himself, that all men learn, and all admonish. 31 For ye may all prophesy one by one, {one after another} that all may learn, and all may have comfort. 31 For ye may all prophesy one by one, that all may learn, and all may have comfort. 31 For ye may all prophesy one by one, that all may learn, and all may be comforted.
14:32 32 And the spirits of prophets be subject to prophets; 32 For the spirits of the prophets are in the power of {are subject unto} the prophets. 32 And the spirits of the Prophets are subject to the Prophets. 32 And the spirits of the prophets are subject to the prophets.
14:33 33 for why God is not of dissension, but of peace; as I teach in all churches of holy men. 33 For God is not causer of strife: {is not a God of discention} but of peace, as (i teach) he is in all other congregations of the saints. 33 For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as we see in all the Churches of the Saints. 33 For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints. [confusion: Gr. tumult, or, unquietness]
14:34 34 Women in churches be still; for it is not suffered to them to speak, but to be subject, as the law saith. 34 Let your wives keep silence in the congregations. For it is not permitted unto them to speak: but let them be under obedience, as saith the law: 34 Let your women keep silence in the Churches: for it is not permitted unto them to speak: but they ought to be subject, as also the Law saith. 34 Let your women keep silence in the churches: for it is not permitted to them to speak; but they are commanded to be under obedience, as also saith the law.
14:35 35 But if they will any thing learn, ask they their husbands at home; for it is foul thing to a woman to speak in the church. 35 if they will learn any thing, let them ask their husbands at home. For it is a shame for {it becometh not} women to speak in the congregation. 35 And if they will learn anything, let them ask their husbands at home: for it is a shame for women to speak in the Church. 35 And if they will learn any thing, let them ask their husbands at home: for it is a shame for women to speak in the church.
14:36 36 Whether the word of God came forth of you, or to you alone it came? 36 Sprang the word of God from you? Either came it unto you only? 36 Came the word of God out from you? Either came it unto you only? 36 What? came the word of God out from you? or came it to you only?
14:37 37 If any man is seen to be a prophet, or spiritual, know he those things that I write to you, for those be the commandments of the Lord [know he the things that I write to you, for they be the commandments of the Lord] . 37 If any man think himself a prophet either spiritual: let him understand, {know} what things I write unto you. For they are the commandments of the Lord. 37 If any man think himself to be a Prophet, or spiritual, let him acknowledge, that the things, that I write unto you, are the commandments of the Lord. 37 If any man thinketh himself to be a prophet, or spiritual, let him acknowledge that the things that I write to you are the commandments of the Lord.
14:38 38 And if any man not knoweth [Forsooth if any man unknoweth] , he shall be unknowing. 38 But and if any man be ignorant, let him be ignorant. 38 And if any man be ignorant, let him be ignorant. 38 But if any man is ignorant, let him be ignorant.
14:39 39 Therefore, brethren, love ye to prophesy, and do not ye forbid to speak in tongues. 39 Wherefore brethren covet to prophesy, and forbid not to speak with tongues. 39 Wherefore, brethren, covet to prophesy, and forbid not to speak languages. 39 Therefore, brethren, covet to prophesy, and forbid not to speak with tongues.
14:40 40 But be all things done seemly [Forsooth be all things done honestly] , and by due order in you. 40 [And] Let all things be done honestly and in order. (among you) 40 Let all things be done honestly, and by order. 40 Let all things be done decently and in order.
15:1 1 Soothly, brethren, I make the gospel known to you, which I have preached to you, which also ye have taken, in which [and] ye stand, 1 Brethren as pertaining to the gospel [gospell] which I preached unto you, which ye have also accepted, and in the which ye continue: {stand} 1 Moreover brethren, I declare unto you the Gospel, which I preached unto you, which ye have also received, and wherein ye continue, 1 Moreover, brethren, I declare to you the gospel which I preached to you, which also ye have received, and in which ye stand;
15:2 2 by which also ye shall be saved [by which and ye be saved] ; by which reason I have preached to you, if ye hold, if ye have not believed idly. 2 by the which also ye are saved, I do you to wit after what manner I preached unto you, if ye keep it, except ye have believed in vain. 2 And whereby ye are saved, if ye keep in memory, after what manner I preached it unto you, except ye have believed in vain. 2 By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached to you, unless ye have believed in vain. [keep...: or, hold fast] [what: Gr. by what speech]
15:3 3 For I betook to you at the beginning that thing which also I have received; that Christ was dead for our sins, by the scriptures; [+For I betook to you in the first that thing which also I took; that Christ was dead for our sins, after the scriptures;] 3 For first of all I delivered unto you that which I received: how that Christ died for our sins, agreeing {according} to the scriptures: 3 For first of all, I delivered unto you that which I received, how that Christ died for our sins, according to the Scriptures, 3 For I delivered to you first of all that which I also received, that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures;
15:4 4 and that he was buried, and that he rose again in the third day, after [the] scriptures; 4 and that he was buried, and that he arose again the third day according to the scriptures: 4 And that he was buried, and that he arose the third day, according to the Scriptures, 4 And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:
15:5 5 and that he was seen to Cephas, and after these things to eleven; 5 and that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve; 5 And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve. 5 And that he was seen by Cephas, then by the twelve:
15:6 6 afterward he was seen to more than five hundred brethren together, of which many live yet, but some be dead [+of which many dwell till to yet/dwell to now, forsooth some have slept, or died] ; 6 After that he was seen of more than five hundred brethren at once: of which many remain unto this day, and many are fallen asleep. 6 After that, he was seen of more than five hundred brethren at once: whereof many remain unto this present, and some also are asleep. 6 After that, he was seen by more than five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain to this present, but some have fallen asleep.
15:7 7 afterward he was seen to James, and afterward to all the apostles. 7 After that appeared he to James, then to all the apostles. 7 After that, he was seen of James: then of all the Apostles. 7 After that, he was seen by James; then by all the apostles.
15:8 8 And last of all he was seen also to me, as to a dead born child [as to a mis-born child] . 8 And last of all he was seen of me, as of one that was born out of due time. 8 And last of all he was seen also of me, as of one born out of due time. 8 And last of all he was seen by me also, as by one born out of due time. [one...: or, an abortive]
15:9 9 For I am the least of the apostles, that am not worthy to be called apostle, for I pursued the church of God. 9 For I am the least of all the apostles, which am not worthy to be called an apostle, because I persecuted the congregation of God: 9 For I am the least of the Apostles, which am not meet to be called an Apostle, because I persecuted the Church of God. 9 For I am the least of the apostles, who am not worthy to be called an apostle, because I persecuted the church of God.
15:10 10 But by the grace of God I am that thing that I am; and his grace was not void in me [and his grace was not void, or idle, in me] . For I travailed more plenteously than all they [But I travailed more plenteously than all they] ; but not I, but the grace of God with me. 10 But by the favour [grace] of God I am that I am. And his favour [grace] which is in me was not in vain: but I laboured more abundantly than they all, [yet] not I, but the favour [grace] of God which is with me. 10 But by the grace of God, I am that I am: and his grace which is in me, was not in vain: but I labored more abundantly than they all: yet not I, but the grace of God which is with me. 10 But by the grace of God I am what I am: and his grace which was bestowed upon me was not in vain; but I laboured more abundantly than they all: yet not I, but the grace of God which was with me.
15:11 11 But whether I, or they, so we have preached, and so ye have believed. 11 Whether it were I or they, so have we preach, and so have ye believed. 11 Wherefore, whether it were I, or they, so we preach, and so have ye believed. 11 Therefore whether it was I or they, so we preach, and so ye believed.
15:12 12 And if Christ is preached, that he rose again from death [from dead] , how say some men among you [how say some in you] , that the again-rising of dead men is not? 12 If Christ be preached how that he rose from death: [the dead:] how say some that are among you, that there is no resurrection of the dead? 12 Now if it be preached, that Christ is risen from the dead, how say some among you, that there is no resurrection of the dead? 12 Now if Christ is preached that he rose from the dead, how say some among you that there is no resurrection of the dead?
15:13 13 And if the again-rising of dead men is not, neither Christ rose again from death [neither Christ rose again] . 13 If there be no rising again {resurrection} of death: [the dead:] then is Christ not risen. 13 For if there be no resurrection of the dead, then is Christ not risen: 13 But if there is no resurrection of the dead, then is Christ not risen:
15:14 14 And if Christ rose not, our preaching is vain, our faith is vain. 14 If Christ be not risen, then is our preaching vain, and your faith is also in vain. 14 And if Christ be not risen, then is our preaching vain, and your faith is also vain. 14 And if Christ is not risen, then is our preaching vain, and your faith is also vain.
15:15 15 [Forsooth] And we be found false witnesses of God, for we have said witnessing against God, that he raised Christ, whom he raised not, if dead men rise not again. 15 Yea, and we are found false witnesses of God. For we have testified against [of] god how that he raised up Christ, whom he raised not up, if it be so that the dead rise not up again. 15 And we are found also false witnesses of God: for we have testified of God, that he hath raised up Christ: whom he hath not raised up, if so be the dead be not raised. 15 And indeed, we are found false witnesses of God; because we have testified concerning God that he raised up Christ: whom he raised not, if in fact the dead rise not.
15:16 16 For why if dead men rise not again, neither Christ rose again; 16 For if the dead rise not again, then is Christ not risen again. 16 For if the dead be not raised, then is Christ not raised. 16 For if the dead rise not, then is not Christ raised:
15:17 17 and if Christ rose not again, our faith is vain; and yet ye be in your sins. 17 If it be so that Christ rose not, then is your faith in vain, and yet are ye in your sins. 17 And if Christ be not raised, your faith is vain: ye are yet in your sins. 17 And if Christ is not raised, your faith is vain; ye are yet in your sins.
15:18 18 And then they that have died in Christ, have perished. [Therefore and they that slept, or died, in Christ, have perished.] 18 And [thereto] they which are fallen asleep in Christ, are perished. 18 And so they which are asleep in Christ, are perished. 18 Then they also who have fallen asleep in Christ have perished.
15:19 19 If in this life only we be hoping in Christ, we be more wretches than all men. 19 If in this life only we believe {hope} on Christ, then are we of all men the miserablest. 19 If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men the most miserable. 19 If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men most miserable.
15:20 20 But now Christ hath risen again from death, the first fruit of dead men; [Now forsooth Christ rose again, from dead, the first fruits of sleeping men;] 20 [But] Now is Christ risen from death, [the dead] and is become the first fruits of them that slept. 20 But now is Christ risen from the dead, and was made the firstfruits of them that slept. 20 But now is Christ risen from the dead, and become the firstfruits of them that slept.
15:21 21 for death was by a man, and by a man is again-rising from death. [for soothly by a man death, and by a man again-rising of dead.] 21 For by a man came death, and by a man came resurrection of death. [the dead.] 21 For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead. 21 For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead.
15:22 22 And as in Adam all men die, so [and] in Christ all men shall be quickened. 22 For as by Adam all die: even so by Christ, shall all be made alive, 22 For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive, 22 For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive.
15:23 23 But each man in his order; the first fruit, Christ [first fruits, Christ] , afterward they that be of Christ, that believed in the coming of Christ; 23 and every man in his own order: The first is Christ, then they that are {belong unto} Christ's [Christis] at his coming. {when he commeth} 23 But every man in his own order: the firstfruits is Christ, afterward, they that are of Christ, at his coming shall rise again. 23 But every man in his own order: Christ the firstfruits; afterward they that are Christ's at his coming.
15:24 24 afterward an end, when he shall betake the kingdom to God and to the Father, when he shall void all princehood, and power, and virtue. 24 Then cometh the end, when he hath delivered up the kingdom to God the father, when he hath put down all rule, authority, {and all superiority} and power. 24 Then shall be the end, when he hath delivered up the kingdom to God, even the Father, when he hath put down all rule, and all authority and power. 24 Then cometh the end, when he shall have delivered up the kingdom to God, even the Father; when he shall have put down all rule and all authority and power.
15:25 25 But it behooveth him to reign, till he put all his enemies under his feet. 25 For he must rule [reign] till he have put all his enemies under his feet. 25 For he must reign til he hath put all his enemies under his feet. 25 For he must reign, till he hath put all enemies under his feet.
15:26 26 And at the last, death the enemy shall be destroyed; [Forsooth at the last, the enemy death shall be destroyed;] 26 The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death. 26 The last enemy that shall be destroyed, is death. 26 The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death.
15:27 27 for he hath made subject all things under his feet. And when he saith, all things be subject to him, without doubt except him that subjected all things to him. 27 For he hath put all things under his feet. But when he saith, all things are put under him, it is manifest, that he is excepted, which did put all things under him. 27 For he hath put down all things under his feet. (And when he saith that all things are subdued to him, it is manifest that he is excepted, which did put down all things under him.) 27 For he hath put all things under his feet. But when he saith all things are put under him, it is evident that he is excepted, who did put all things under him.
15:28 28 And when all things [shall] be subjected to him, then the Son himself shall be subject to him, that made all things subject to him [that subjected all things to him] , that God be all things in all things. 28 When all things are subdued unto him: then shall the son also himself be subject unto him that put all things under him, that God may be all in all things. 28 And when all things shall be subdued unto him, then shall the Son also himself be subject unto him, that did subdue all things under him, that God may be all in all. 28 And when all things shall be subdued to him, then shall the Son also himself be subject to him that put all things under him, that God may be all in all.
15:29 29 Else what shall they do, that be baptized for dead men, if in no wise dead men rise again [if in all manner dead men rise not again] ? whereto [also] be they baptized for them? 29 Other [Either] else what do they which are baptised over the dead, if the dead rise not at all? why are they [then] baptised over the dead? 29 Else what shall they do which are baptized for dead? if the dead rise not at all, why are they then baptized for dead? 29 Else what shall they do who are baptized for the dead, if the dead rise not at all? why are they then baptized for the dead?
15:30 30 And whereto be we in peril every hour? 30 [Yea] And why stand we in jeopardy every hour? 30 Why are we also in jeopardy every hour? 30 And why stand we in jeopardy every hour?
15:31 31 Each day I die for your glory, brethren, which glory I have in Christ Jesus our Lord. 31 by our rejoicing which I have in Christ Jesu our Lord, I die daily. 31 By your rejoicing which I have in Christ Jesus our Lord, I die daily. 31 I protest by your rejoicing which I have in Christ Jesus our Lord, I die daily. [your: some read, our]
15:32 32 If after man I have fought to beasts at Ephesus [If after man I have fought to beasts, or against beasts, at Ephesus] , what profiteth it to me, if dead men rise not again? Eat we, and drink we, for we shall die to morrow [Eat we, and drink we, to morrow forsooth we shall die] . 32 That I have fought with beasts at Ephesus after the manner of men, what advantageth {helpeth} it me, if the dead rise not again? Let us eat and drink, tomorrow we shall die. 32 If I have fought with beasts at Ephesus after the manner of men, what advantageth it me, if the dead be not raised up? let us eat and drink: for tomorrow we shall die. 32 If after the manner of men I have fought with beasts at Ephesus, what advantage is it to me, if the dead rise not? let us eat and drink; for to morrow we die. [after...: or, to speak after the manner of men]
15:33 33 Do not ye be deceived; for evil speeches destroy good conduct. [Do not ye be deceived; forsooth evil speeches corrupt, or destroy, good conduct, or virtues.] 33 Be not deceived: malicious {evil} speakings corrupt good manners. 33 Be not deceived: evil speakings corrupt good manners. 33 Be not deceived: evil company corrupteth good habits.
15:34 34 Awake ye, just men, and do not ye do sin; for some men have ignorance of God, but to reverence I speak to you. [Wake ye, just, and do not ye sin; forsooth some have ignorance of God, to reverence I speak to you.] 34 Awake truly out of sleep, {right up} and sin not. For some have not the knowledge of God. I speak this unto your rebuke. 34 Awake to live righteously, and sin not: for some have not the knowledge of God, I speak this to your shame. 34 Awake to righteousness, and sin not; for some have not the knowledge of God: I speak this to your shame.
15:35 35 But some man saith, How shall dead men rise again, or in what manner body shall they come? 35 But some man will {might} say: how shall the dead arise? with what {what manner of} body shall they come? [in] 35 But some man will say, How are the dead raised up? and with what body come they forth? 35 But some man will say, How are the dead raised? and with what body do they come?
15:36 36 [O!] unwise man, that thing that thou sowest, is not quickened, but it die first; 36 Thou fool, that which thou sowest, is not quickened except it die. 36 O fool, that which thou sowest, is not quickened, except it die. 36 Thou fool, that which thou sowest is not made alive, except it die:
15:37 37 and that thing that thou sowest, thou sowest not the body that is to come, but a naked corn, as of wheat, or of some other seeds; 37 And what sowest thou? Thou sowest not that body that shall be: but bare corn (I mean either of wheat, or of some other) 37 And that which thou sowest, thou sowest not that body that shall be, but bare corn as it falleth, of wheat, or of some other. 37 And that which thou sowest, thou sowest not that body that shall be, but bare grain, perhaps of wheat, or of some other grain:
15:38 38 and God giveth to it a body, as he will, and to each of seeds a proper body. 38 and God giveth it a body at his pleasure, to every seed a several body. {will, and unto every one of the seeds his own body} 38 But God giveth it a body at his pleasure, even to every seed his own body, 38 But God giveth it a body as it hath pleased him, and to every seed its own body.
15:39 39 Not each flesh is the same flesh, but one is of men, another is of beasts, another is of birds, another is of fishes. 39 All flesh is not one manner of flesh: but there is one manner flesh of men, another manner flesh of beasts, another manner flesh of fishes, and another of birds. 39 All flesh is not the same flesh, but there is one flesh of men, and another flesh of beasts, and another of fishes, and another of birds. 39 All flesh is not the same flesh: but there is one kind of flesh of men, another flesh of beasts, another of fishes, and another of birds.
15:40 40 And there be heavenly bodies, and there be earthly bodies [and earthly bodies] ; but one glory is of heavenly bodies, and another is of earthly [bodies] . 40 There are celestial {heavenly} bodies, and there are bodies terrestrial: {earthly bodies} But the glory of the celestial is one, and the glory of the terrestrial is another. {but the heavenly have one glory, and the earthly another} 40 There are also heavenly bodies, and earthly bodies: but the glory of the heavenly is one, and the glory of the earthly is another. 40 There are also celestial bodies, and bodies terrestrial: but the glory of the celestial is one, and the glory of the terrestrial is another.

For one star differeth from another in glory. {for one star excelleth another in clearness} 41 There is another glory of the sun, and another glory of the moon, and another glory of the stars: for one star differeth from another star in glory. 41 There is one glory of the sun, and another glory of the moon, and another glory of the stars: for one star differeth from another star in glory.
15:42 42 And so the again-rising of dead men. It is sown in corruption, it shall rise in uncorruption; 42 So is the resurrection of the dead. It is sown in corruption, and riseth {shall rise} in incorruption. 42 So also is the resurrection of the dead. The body is sown in corruption, and is raised in incorruption. 42 So also is the resurrection of the dead. It is sown in corruption; it is raised in incorruption:
15:43 43 it is sown in unnobleness [it is sown in unnobility] , it shall rise in glory; it is sown in infirmity, it shall rise in virtue; 43 It is sown in dishonour, and riseth in honour. {glory} It is sown in weakness, and riseth in power. 43 It is sown in dishonor, and is raised in glory: it is sown in weakness, and is raised in power. 43 It is sown in dishonour; it is raised in glory: it is sown in weakness; it is raised in power:
15:44 44 it is sown a beastly body, it shall rise a spiritual body. If there is a beastly body, there is also a spiritual body; 44 It is sown a natural body, and riseth a spiritual body. There is a natural body and there is a spiritual body. 44 It is sown a natural body, and is raised a spiritual body: there is a natural body, and there is a spiritual body. 44 It is sown a natural body; it is raised a spiritual body. There is a natural body, and there is a spiritual body.
15:45 45 as it is written, The first man Adam was made into a soul living, the last Adam into a spirit quickening. 45 As it is written: The first man Adam was made a living soul: and the last Adam was made a quickening spirit: 45 As it is also written, The first man Adam was made a living soul: and the last Adam was made a quickening Spirit. 45 And so it is written, The first man Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam was made a living spirit.
15:46 46 But the first is not that that is spiritual [But not first was that body that is spiritual] , but that that is beast-like, afterward that that is spiritual. 46 but [Howbeit] that is not first which is spiritual: but that which is natural, and then that which is spiritual. 46 Howbeit that was not first made which is spiritual: but that which is natural, and afterward that which is spiritual. 46 However that was not first which is spiritual, but that which is natural; and afterward that which is spiritual.
15:47 47 The first man of earth is earthly; the second man of heaven is heavenly [the second man of heaven is heaven-like] . 47 The first man is of the earth, earthy: The second man is from heaven, heavenly. [the second man is the Lorde from heaven.] 47 The first man is of the earth, earthly: the second man is the Lord from heaven. 47 The first man is from the earth, earthy: the second man is the Lord from heaven.
15:48 48 Such as the earthly man is, such be [and] the earthly men; and such as the heavenly man is, such be also the heavenly men. 48 As is the earthy, such are they that are earthy: And as is the heavenly, such are they that are heavenly. 48 As is the earthly, such are they that are earthly: and as is the heavenly, such are they also that are heavenly. 48 As is the earthy, such are they also that are earthy: and as is the heavenly, such are they also that are heavenly.
15:49 49 Therefore as we have borne the image of the earthly man, bear we also the image of the heavenly man [bear we and the image of the heavenly] . 49 And as we have born the image of the earthy, so shall we bear the image of the heavenly. 49 And as we have borne the image of the earthly, so shall we bear the image of the heavenly. 49 And as we have borne the image of the earthy, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly.
15:50 50 Brethren, I say this thing, that flesh and blood be not able to wield the kingdom of God, neither corruption shall wield uncorruption. [Brethren, I say this thing, that flesh and blood may not wield the kingdom of God, neither corruption shall wield incorruption.] 50 This say I brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God. Neither doth corruption inherit uncorruption. 50 This say I, brethren, that flesh and blood can not inherit the kingdom of God, neither doeth corruption inherit incorruption. 50 Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption.
15:51 51 Lo! I say to you private of holy things [Lo! I say to you mystery, or private, of holy things] . And all we shall rise again, but not all we shall be changed; 51 Behold I shew a mystery unto you: we shall not all sleep: but we shall all be changed, 51 Behold, I shew you a secret thing, We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, 51 Behold, I show you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed,
15:52 52 in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, in the last trump; for the trumpet shall sound, and dead men shall rise again, without corruption [forsooth the trump shall sing, and dead men shall rise again, incorrupt] , and we shall be changed. 52 and that in a moment, {suddenly} and in the twinkling of an eye, at the sound {time} of the last trumpet. For the trumpet shall blow, and the dead shall rise incorruptible: And we shall be changed. 52 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye at the last trumpet: for the trumpet shall blow, and the dead shall be raised up incorruptible, and we shall be changed. 52 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.
15:53 53 For it behooveth this corruptible thing to clothe uncorruption, and this deadly thing to put away undeadliness. [For it behooveth this corruptible thing for to clothe incorruption, and this deadly thing for to cloth undeadliness.] 53 For this corruptible must put on incorruptibility: and this mortal must put on immortality. 53 For this corruptible must put on incorruption: and this mortal must put on immortality. 53 For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.
15:54 54 But when this deadly thing shall clothe undeadliness, then shall the word be done, that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory [+then shall be made, or fulfilled, the word that is written, Death is sopped up in victory] . 54 When this corruptible hath put on incorruptibility: and this mortal hath put on immortality: then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written: Death is consumed into victory. {then shall the word be fulfilled that is written: Death is swallowed up in victory.} 54 So when this corruptible hath put on incorruption, and this mortal hath put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up into victory. 54 So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory.
15:55 55 Death, where is thy victory? Death, where is thy prick? 55 Death where is thy sting? Hell where is thy victory? 55 O death, where is thy sting? [!] O grave where is thy victory? [!] 55 O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory? [grave: or, hell]
15:56 56 But the prick of death is sin; and the virtue of sin is the law. 56 The sting of death is sin. [:and] The strength of sin is the law: 56 The sting of death is sin: and the strength of sin is the Law. 56 The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law.
15:57 57 But do we thankings to God [Forsooth thankings to God] , that gave to us victory by our Lord Jesus Christ. 57 But thanks be unto God, which hath given us victory thorow our Lord Jesus Christ. 57 But thanks be unto God, which hath given us victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. 57 But thanks be to God, who giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
