Corinthians 1 12

Book of Corinthians 1 - Chapter 12

Corinthians 1 12:1

Now concerning spiritual [gifts], brethren, I would not have you ignorant.

Corinthians 1 12:2

Ye know that ye were Gentiles, carried away unto these dumb idols, even as ye were led.

Corinthians 1 12:3

Wherefore 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 Ghost.

Corinthians 1 12:4

Now there are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit.

Corinthians 1 12:5

And there are differences of administrations, but the same Lord.

Corinthians 1 12:6

And there are diversities of operations, but it is the same God which worketh all in all.

Corinthians 1 12:7

But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man to profit withal.

Corinthians 1 12:8

For to one is given by the Spirit the word of wisdom; to another the word of knowledge by the same Spirit;

Corinthians 1 12:9

To another faith by the same Spirit; to another the gifts of healing by the same Spirit;

Corinthians 1 12:10

To another the working of miracles; to another prophecy; to another discerning of spirits; to another [divers] kinds of tongues; to another the interpretation of tongues:

Corinthians 1 12:11

But all these worketh that one and the selfsame Spirit, dividing to every man severally as he will.

Corinthians 1 12:12

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.

Corinthians 1 12:13

For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether [we be] Jews or Gentiles, whether [we be] bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit.

Corinthians 1 12:14

For the body is not one member, but many.

Corinthians 1 12:15

If the foot shall say, Because I am not the hand, I am not of the body; is it therefore not of the body?

Corinthians 1 12:16

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?

Corinthians 1 12:17

If the whole body [were] an eye, where [were] the hearing? If the whole [were] hearing, where [were] the smelling?

Corinthians 1 12:18

But now hath God set the members every one of them in the body, as it hath pleased him.

Corinthians 1 12:19

And if they were all one member, where [were] the body?

Corinthians 1 12:20

But now [are they] many members, yet but one body.

Corinthians 1 12:21

And the eye cannot say unto the hand, I have no need of thee: nor again the head to the feet, I have no need of you.

Corinthians 1 12:22

Nay, much more those members of the body, which seem to be more feeble, are necessary:

Corinthians 1 12:23

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.

Corinthians 1 12:24

For our comely [parts] have no need: but God hath tempered the body together, having given more abundant honour to that [part] which lacked:

Corinthians 1 12:25

That there should be no schism in the body; but [that] the members should have the same care one for another.

Corinthians 1 12:26

And whether one member suffer, all the members suffer with it; or one member be honoured, all the members rejoice with it.

Corinthians 1 12:27

Now ye are the body of Christ, and members in particular.

Corinthians 1 12:28

And God hath set some in the church, first apostles, secondarily prophets, thirdly teachers, after that miracles, then gifts of healings, helps, governments, diversities of tongues.

Corinthians 1 12:29

[Are] all apostles? [are] all prophets? [are] all teachers? [are] all workers of miracles?

Corinthians 1 12:30

Have all the gifts of healing? do all speak with tongues? do all interpret?

Corinthians 1 12:31

But covet earnestly the best gifts: and yet show I unto you a more excellent way.
