I CORINTHIANS · Chapter 3
3:1 And I, brethren, could not speak unto you as unto spiritual, but
as unto carnal, even as unto babes in Christ.
3:2 I have fed you with milk, and not with food: for until now all of you were not able to bear it, neither yet now are all of you able.
3:3 For all of you are yet carnal: for whereas there is among you envying, and strife, and divisions, are all of you not carnal, and walk as men?
3:4 For while one says, I am of Paul; and another, I am of Apollos; are all of you not carnal?
3:5 Who then is Paul, and who is Apollos, but ministers by whom all of you believed, even as the Lord gave to every man?
3:6 I have planted, Apollos watered; but God gave the increase.
3:7 So then neither is he that plants any thing, neither he that waters; but God that gives the increase.
3:8 Now he that plants and he that waters are one: and every man shall receive his own reward according to his own labour.
3:9 For we are labourers together with God: all of you are God's farming, all of you are God's building.
3:10 According to the grace of God which is given unto me, as a wise architect, I have laid the foundation, and another builds thereon. But let every man take heed how he builds thereupon.
3:11 For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ.
3:12 Now if any man build upon this foundation gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, stubble;
3:13 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.
3:14 If any man's work abide which he has built thereupon, he shall receive a reward.
3:15 If any man's work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire.
3:16 Know all of you not that all of you are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwells in you?
3:17 If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple all of you are.
3:18 Let no man deceive himself. If any man among you seems to be wise in this world, let him become a fool, that he may be wise.
3:19 For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, He takes the wise in their own craftiness.
3:20 And again, The Lord knows the thoughts of the wise, that they are vain.
3:21 Therefore let no man glory in men. For all things are your's;
3:22 Whether Paul, or Apollos, or Cephas, or the world, or life, or death, or things present, or things to come; all are your's;
3:23 And all of you are Christ's; and Christ is God's.
