Book of Corinthians 1 - Chapter 1

Corinthians 1 1:1

Paul, called [to be] an apostle of Jesus Christ through the will of God, and Sosthenes [our] brother,

Corinthians 1 1:2

Unto the church of God which is at Corinth, to them that are sanctified in Christ Jesus, called [to be] saints, with all that in every place call upon the name of Jesus Christ our Lord, both theirs and ours:

Corinthians 1 1:3

Grace [be] unto you, and peace, from God our Father, and [from] the Lord Jesus Christ.

Corinthians 1 1:4

I thank my God always on your behalf, for the grace of God which is given you by Jesus Christ;

Corinthians 1 1:5

That in every thing ye are enriched by him, in all utterance, and [in] all knowledge;

Corinthians 1 1:6

Even as the testimony of Christ was confirmed in you:

Corinthians 1 1:7

So that ye come behind in no gift; waiting for the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ:

Corinthians 1 1:8

Who shall also confirm you unto the end, [that ye may be] blameless in the day of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Corinthians 1 1:9

God [is] faithful, by whom ye were called unto the fellowship of his Son Jesus Christ our Lord.

Corinthians 1 1:10

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.

Corinthians 1 1:11

For it hath been declared unto me of you, my brethren, by them [which are of the house] of Chloe, that there are contentions among you.

Corinthians 1 1:12

Now this I say, that every one of you saith, I am of Paul; and I of Apollos; and I of Cephas; and I of Christ.

Corinthians 1 1:13

Is Christ divided? was Paul crucified for you? or were ye baptized in the name of Paul?

Corinthians 1 1:14

I thank God that I baptized none of you, but Crispus and Gaius;

Corinthians 1 1:15

Lest any should say that I had baptized in mine own name.

Corinthians 1 1:16

And I baptized also the household of Stephanas: besides, I know not whether I baptized any other.

Corinthians 1 1:17

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.

Corinthians 1 1:18

For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.

Corinthians 1 1:19

For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent.

Corinthians 1 1:20

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?

Corinthians 1 1:21

For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe.

Corinthians 1 1:22

For the Jews require a sign, and the Greeks seek after wisdom:

Corinthians 1 1:23

But we preach Christ crucified, unto the Jews a stumblingblock, and unto the Greeks foolishness;

Corinthians 1 1:24

But unto them which are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God.

Corinthians 1 1:25

Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the weakness of God is stronger than men.

Corinthians 1 1:26

For ye see your calling, brethren, how that not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, [are called]:

Corinthians 1 1:27

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;

Corinthians 1 1:28

And base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, [yea], and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are:

Corinthians 1 1:29

That no flesh should glory in his presence.

Corinthians 1 1:30

But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption:

Corinthians 1 1:31

That, according as it is written, He that glorieth, let him glory in the Lord.
