1 Corinthians Chapter 1

1 Corinthians 1:1 (NASB)

1 Paul, called as an apostle of Jesus Christ by the will of God, and Sosthenes our brother,

1 Corinthians 1:2 (CJB)

2 To: God’s Messianic community in Corinth, consisting of those who have been set apart by Jesus the Messiah and called to be God’s holy people — along with everyone everywhere who calls on the name of our Lord Jesus the Messiah, their Lord as well as ours:

1 Corinthians 1:3 (NIV)

3 Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.

1 Corinthians 1:4 (CJB)

4 I thank my God always for you because of God’s love and kindness given to you through the Messiah Jesus,

1 Corinthians 1:5 (NIV)

5 For in him you have been enriched in every way–in all your speaking and in all your knowledge–

1 Corinthians 1:6 (NIV)

6 because our testimony about Christ was confirmed in you.

1 Corinthians 1:7 (NIV)

7 Therefore you do not lack any spiritual gift as you eagerly wait for our Lord Jesus Christ to be revealed.

1 Corinthians 1:8 (CJB)

8 He will enable you to hold out until the end and thus be blameless on the Day of our Lord Jesus the Messiah —

1 Corinthians 1:9 (CJB)

9 God is trustworthy: it was he who called you into fellowship with his Son, Jesus the Messiah, our Lord.

1 Corinthians 1:10 (NIV)

10 I appeal to you, brothers, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you agree with one another so that there may be no divisions among you and that you may be perfectly united in mind and thought.

1 Corinthians 1:11 (AMP)

11 For it has been made clear to me, my brethren, by those of Chloe’s household, that there are contentions and wrangling and factions among you.

1 Corinthians 1:12 (AMP)

12 What I mean is this, that each one of you [either] says, I belong to Paul, or I belong to Apollos, or I belong to Cephas (Peter), or I belong to Christ.

1 Corinthians 1:13 (AMP)

13 Is Christ (the Messiah) divided into parts? Was Paul crucified on behalf of you? Or were you baptized into the name of Paul?

1 Corinthians 1:14 (AMP)

14 I thank God that I did not baptize any of you except Crispus and Gaius,

1 Corinthians 1:15 (AMP)

15 Lest anyone should say that I baptized in my own name.

1 Corinthians 1:16 (NIV)

16 (Yes, I also baptized the household of Stephanas; beyond that, I don’t remember if I baptized anyone else.)

1 Corinthians 1:17 (AMP)

17 For Christ (the Messiah) sent me out not to baptize but [to evangelize by] preaching the glad tidings (the Gospel), and that not with verbal eloquence, lest the cross of Christ should be deprived of force and emptied of its power and rendered vain (fruitless, void of value, and of no effect).

1 Corinthians 1:18 (NIV)

18 For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.

1 Corinthians 1:19 (NKJV)

19 For it is written: “I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, And bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent.”

1 Corinthians 1:20 (NASB)

20 Where is the wise man? Where is the scribe? Where is the debater of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of the world?

1 Corinthians 1:21 (CJB)

21 For God’s wisdom ordained that the world, using its own wisdom, would not come to know him. Therefore God decided to use the “nonsense” of what we proclaim as his means of saving those who come to trust in it.

1 Corinthians 1:22 (NASB)

22 For indeed Jews ask for signs and Greeks search for wisdom;

1 Corinthians 1:23 (NIV)

23 but we preach Christ crucified: a stumbling block to Jews and foolishness to Gentiles,

1 Corinthians 1:24 (CJB)

24 but to those who are called, both Jews and Greeks, this same Messiah is God’s power and God’s wisdom!

1 Corinthians 1:25 (NIV)

25 For the foolishness of God is wiser than man’s wisdom, and the weakness of God is stronger than man’s strength.

1 Corinthians 1:26 (NIV)

26 Brothers, think of what you were when you were called. Not many of you were wise by human standards; not many were influential; not many were of noble birth.

1 Corinthians 1:27 (AMP)

27 [No] for God selected (deliberately chose) what in the world is foolish to put the wise to shame, and what the world calls weak to put the strong to shame.

1 Corinthians 1:28 (NKJV)

28 and the base things of the world and the things which are despised God has chosen, and the things which are not, to bring to nothing the things that are,

1 Corinthians 1:29 (NKJV)

29 that no flesh should glory in His presence.

1 Corinthians 1:30 (CJB)

30 It is his doing that you are united with the Messiah Yeshua. He has become wisdom for us from God, and righteousness and holiness and redemption as well!

1 Corinthians 1:31 (NKJV)

31 that, as it is written, “He who glories, let him glory in the LORD.”

1 Corinthians Chapter 2

1 Corinthians 2:1 (NIV)

1 When I came to you, brothers, I did not come with eloquence or superior wisdom as I proclaimed to you the testimony about God.

1 Corinthians 2:2 (NIV)

2 For I resolved to know nothing while I was with you except Jesus Christ and him crucified.

1 Corinthians 2:3 (NASB)

3 I was with you in weakness and in fear and in much trembling,

1 Corinthians 2:4 (NKJV)

4 And my speech and my preaching were not with persuasive words of human wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power,

1 Corinthians 2:5 (NASB)

5 so that your faith would not rest on the wisdom of men, but on the power of God.

1 Corinthians 2:6 (NKJV)

6 However, we speak wisdom among those who are mature, yet not the wisdom of this age, nor of the rulers of this age, who are coming to nothing.

1 Corinthians 2:7 (NASB)

7 but we speak God’s wisdom in a mystery, the hidden wisdom which God predestined before the ages to our glory;

1 Corinthians 2:8 (NASB)

8 the wisdom which none of the rulers of this age has understood; for if they had understood it they would not have crucified the Lord of glory;

1 Corinthians 2:9 (NKJV)

9 But as it is written: “Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, Nor have entered into the heart of man The things which God has prepared for those who love Him.”

1 Corinthians 2:10 (NKJV)

10 But God has revealed them to us through His Spirit. For the Spirit searches all things, yes, the deep things of God.

1 Corinthians 2:11 (CJB)

11 For who knows the inner workings of a person except the person’s own spirit inside him? So too no one knows the inner workings of God except God’s Spirit.

1 Corinthians 2:12 (NKJV)

12 Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, that we might know the things that have been freely given to us by God.

1 Corinthians 2:13 (NIV)

13 This is what we speak, not in words taught us by human wisdom but in words taught by the Spirit, expressing spiritual truths in spiritual words.

1 Corinthians 2:14 (NKJV)

14 But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.

1 Corinthians 2:15 (CJB)-M

15 But the person who has the Spirit can evaluate everything, while no one is in a position to evaluate him.

1 Corinthians 2:16 (AMP)

16 For who has known or understood the mind (the counsels and purposes) of the Lord so as to guide and instruct Him and give Him knowledge? But we have the mind of Christ (the Messiah) and do hold the thoughts (feelings and purposes) of His heart.

1 Corinthians Chapter 3

1 Corinthians 3:1 (NIV)

1 Brothers, I could not address you as spiritual but as worldly–mere infants in Christ.

1 Corinthians 3:2 (NIV)

2 I gave you milk, not solid food, for you were not yet ready for it. Indeed, you are still not ready.

1 Corinthians 3:3 (NKJV)

3 for you are still carnal. For where there are envy, strife, and divisions among you, are you not carnal and behaving like mere men?

1 Corinthians 3:4 (NKJV)

4 For when one says, “I am of Paul,” and another, “I am of Apollos,” are you not carnal?

1 Corinthians 3:5 (NKJV)

5 Who then is Paul, and who is Apollos, but ministers through whom you believed, as the Lord gave to each one?

1 Corinthians 3:6 (NIV)

6 I planted the seed, Apollos watered it, but God made it grow.

1 Corinthians 3:7 (NIV)

7 So neither he who plants nor he who waters is anything, but only God, who makes things grow.

1 Corinthians 3:8 (AMP)

8 He who plants and he who waters are equal (one in aim, of the same importance and esteem), yet each shall receive his own reward (wages), according to his own labor.

1 Corinthians 3:9 (AMP)

9 For we are fellow workmen (joint promoters, laborers together) with and for God; you are God’s garden and vineyard and field under cultivation, [you are] God’s building.

1 Corinthians 3:10 (AMP)

10 According to the grace (the special endowment for my task) of God bestowed on me, like a skillful architect and master builder I laid [the] foundation, and now another [man] is building upon it. But let each [man] be careful how he builds upon it,

1 Corinthians 3:11 (AMP)

11 For no other foundation can anyone lay than that which is [already] laid, which is Jesus Christ (the Messiah, the Anointed One).

1 Corinthians 3:12 (CJB)

12 Some will use gold, silver or precious stones in building on this foundation; while others will use wood, grass or straw.

1 Corinthians 3:13 (CJB)

13 But each one’s work will be shown for what it is; the Day will disclose it, because it will be revealed by fire — the fire will test the quality of each one’s work.

1 Corinthians 3:14 (CJB)

14 If the work someone has built on the foundation survives, he will receive a reward;

1 Corinthians 3:15 (AMP)

15 But if any person’s work is burned up [under the test], he will suffer the loss [of it all, losing his reward], though he himself will be saved, but only as [one who has passed] through fire.

1 Corinthians 3:16 (NKJV)

16 Do you not know that you are the temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you?

1 Corinthians 3:17 (NIV)

17 If anyone destroys God’s temple, God will destroy him; for God’s temple is sacred, and you are that temple.

1 Corinthians 3:18 (CJB)

18 Let no one fool himself. If someone among you thinks he is wise (by this world’s standards), let him become “foolish,” so that he may become really wise.

1 Corinthians 3:19 (NKJV)

19 For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, “He catches the wise in their own craftiness”;

1 Corinthians 3:20 (NIV)

20 and again, “The Lord knows that the thoughts of the wise are futile.”

1 Corinthians 3:21 (AMP)

21 So let no one exult proudly concerning men [boasting of having this or that man as a leader], for all things are yours,

1 Corinthians 3:22 (NASB)

22 whether Paul or Apollos or Cephas or the world or life or death or things present or things to come; all things belong to you,

1 Corinthians 3:23 (NASB)

23 and you belong to Christ; and Christ belongs to God.

1 Corinthians Chapter 4

1 Corinthians 4:1 (NASB)

1 Let a man regard us in this manner, as servants of Christ and stewards of the mysteries of God.

1 Corinthians 4:2 (NASB)

2 In this case, moreover, it is required of stewards that one be found trustworthy.

1 Corinthians 4:3 (NKJV)

3 But with me it is a very small thing that I should be judged by you or by a human court. In fact, I do not even judge myself.

1 Corinthians 4:4 (AMP)

4 I am not conscious of anything against myself, and I feel blameless; but I am not vindicated and acquitted before God on that account. It is the Lord [Himself] Who examines and judges me.

1 Corinthians 4:5 (NIV)

5 Therefore judge nothing before the appointed time; wait till the Lord comes. He will bring to light what is hidden in darkness and will expose the motives of men’s hearts. At that time each will receive his praise from God.

1 Corinthians 4:6 (AMP)

6 Now I have applied all this [about parties and factions] to myself and Apollos for your sakes, brethren, so that from what I have said of us [as illustrations], you may learn [to think of men in accordance with Scripture and] not to go beyond that which is written, that none of you may be puffed up and inflated with pride and boast in favor of one [minister and teacher] against another.

1 Corinthians 4:7 (7KB)

How can you be regarded as being superior (concerning the gift you which you possess)? What do you have that God has not given to you? If then everything you have is a gift from God, then why boast about it (as if were not a gift)?

1 Corinthians 4:8 (AMP)

8 [You behave as if] you are already filled and think you have enough [you are full and content, feeling no need of anything more]! Already you have become rich [in spiritual gifts and graces]! [Without any counsel or instruction from us, in your conceit], you have ascended your thrones and come into your kingdom without including us! And would that it were true and that you did reign, so that we might be sharing the kingdom with you!

1 Corinthians 4:9 (NIV)

9 For it seems to me that God has put us apostles on display at the end of the procession, like men condemned to die in the arena. We have been made a spectacle to the whole universe, to angels as well as to men.

1 Corinthians 4:10 (AMP)

10 We are [looked upon as] fools on account of Christ and for His sake, but you are [supposedly] so amazingly wise and prudent in Christ! We are weak, but you are [so very] strong! You are highly esteemed, but we are in disrepute and contempt!

1 Corinthians 4:11 (NASB)

11 To this present hour we are both hungry and thirsty, and are poorly clothed, and are roughly treated, and are homeless;

1 Corinthians 4:12 (CJB)

12 we exhaust ourselves working with our own hands for our living. When we are cursed, we keep on blessing; when we are persecuted, we go on putting up with it;

1 Corinthians 4:13 (NIV)

13 when we are slandered, we answer kindly. Up to this moment we have become the scum of the earth, the refuse of the world.

1 Corinthians 4:14 (NIV)

14 I am not writing this to shame you, but to warn you, as my dear children.

1 Corinthians 4:15 (NASB)

15 For if you were to have countless tutors in Christ, yet you would not have many fathers, for in Christ Jesus I became your father through the gospel.

1 Corinthians 4:16 (NIV)

16 Therefore I urge you to imitate me.

1 Corinthians 4:17 (NKJV)

17 For this reason I have sent Timothy to you, who is my beloved and faithful son in the Lord, who will remind you of my ways in Christ, as I teach everywhere in every church.

1 Corinthians 4:18 (AMP)

18 Some of you have become conceited and arrogant and pretentious, counting on my not coming to you.

1 Corinthians 4:19 (NIV)

19 But I will come to you very soon, if the Lord is willing, and then I will find out not only how these arrogant people are talking, but what power they have.

1 Corinthians 4:20 (NIV)

20 For the kingdom of God is not a matter of talk but of power.

1 Corinthians 4:21 (AMP)

21 Now which do you prefer? Shall I come to you with a rod of correction, or with love and in a spirit of gentleness?

1 Corinthians Chapter 5

1 Corinthians 5:1 (CJB)

1 It is actually being reported that there is sexual sin among you, and it is sexual sin of a kind that is condemned even by pagans—a man is living with his stepmother!

1 Corinthians 5:2 (CJB)

2 And you stay proud? Shouldn’t you rather have felt some sadness that would have led you to remove from your company the man who has done this thing?

1 Corinthians 5:3 (NIV)

3 Even though I am not physically present, I am with you in spirit. And I have already passed judgment on the one who did this, just as if I were present.

1 Corinthians 5:4 (NASB)

4 In the name of our Lord Jesus, when you are assembled, and I with you in spirit, with the power of our Lord Jesus,

1 Corinthians 5:5 (NASB)

5 I have decided to deliver such a one to Satan for the destruction of his flesh, so that his spirit may be saved in the day of the Lord Jesus.

1 Corinthians 5:6 (AMP)

6 [About the condition of your church] your boasting is not good [indeed, it is most unseemly and entirely out of place]. Do you not know that [just] a little leaven will ferment the whole lump [of dough]?

1 Corinthians 5:7 (AMP)

7 Purge (clean out) the old leaven that you may be fresh (new) dough, still uncontaminated [as you are], for Christ, our Passover [Lamb], has been sacrificed.

1 Corinthian 5:8 (NASB)

8 Therefore let us celebrate the feast, not with old leaven, nor with the leaven of malice and wickedness, but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.

1 Corinthians 5:9 (CJB)

9 In my earlier letter I wrote you not to associate with people who engage in sexual immorality.

1 Corinthians 5:10 (AMP)

10 Not [meaning of course that you must] altogether shun the immoral people of this world, or the greedy graspers and cheats and thieves or idolaters, since otherwise you would need to get out of the world and human society altogether!

1 Corinthians 5:11 (CJB)

11 No, what I wrote you was not to associate with anyone who is supposedly a brother but who also engages in sexual immorality, is greedy, worships idols, is abusive, gets drunk or steals. With such a person you shouldn’t even eat!

1 Corinthians 5:12 (CJB)

12 For what business is it of mine to judge outsiders? Isn’t it those who are part of the community that you should be judging?

1 Corinthians 5:13 (CJB)

13 God will judge those who are outside. Just expel the evildoer from among yourselves.

1 Corinthians Chapter 6

1 Corinthians 6:1 (CJB)

1 How dare one of you with a complaint against another go to court before pagan judges and not before God’s people?

1 Corinthians 6:2 (CJB)

2 Don’t you know that God’s people are going to judge the universe? If you are going to judge the universe, are you incompetent to judge these minor matters?

1 Corinthians 6:3 (NIV)

3 Do you not know that we will judge angels? How much more the things of this life!

1 Corinthians 6:4 (CJB)

4 So if you require judgments about matters of everyday life, why do you put them in front of men who have no standing in the Messianic Community?

1 Corinthians 6:5 (CJB)

5 I say, shame on you! Can it be that there isn’t one person among you wise enough to be able to settle a dispute between brothers?

1 Corinthians 6:6 (CJB)

6 Instead, a brother brings a lawsuit against another brother, and that before unbelievers!

1 Corinthians 6:7 (NIV)

7 The very fact that you have lawsuits among you means you have been completely defeated already. Why not rather be wronged? Why not rather be cheated?

1 Corinthians 6:8 (NASB)

8 On the contrary, you yourselves wrong and defraud. You do this even to your brethren.

1 Corinthians 6:9 (NIV2011)

9 Or do you not know that wrongdoers will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor men who have sex with men

1 Corinthians 6:10 (NIV)

10 nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God.

1 Corinthians 6:11 (CJB)

11 Some of you used to do these things. But you have cleansed yourselves, you have been set apart for God, you have come to be counted righteous through the power of the Lord Jesus the Messiah and the Spirit of our God.

1 Corinthians 6:12 (NASB)

12 All things are lawful for me, but not all things are profitable. All things are lawful for me, but I will not be mastered by anything.

1 Corinthians 6:13 (NIV)

13 “Food for the stomach and the stomach for food”–but God will destroy them both. The body is not meant for sexual immorality, but for the Lord, and the Lord for the body.

1 Corinthians 6:14 (CJB)

14 God raised up the Lord, and he will raise us up too by his power.

1 Corinthians 6:15 (NIV)

15 Do you not know that your bodies are members of Christ himself? Shall I then take the members of Christ and unite them with a prostitute? Never!

1 Corinthians 6:16 (AMP)

16 Or do you not know and realize that when a man joins himself to a prostitute, he becomes one body with her? The two, it is written, shall become one flesh.

1 Corinthians 6:17 (AMP)

17 But the person who is united to the Lord becomes one spirit with Him.

1 Corinthians 6:18 (NIV)

18 Flee from sexual immorality. All other sins a man commits are outside his body, but he who sins sexually sins against his own body.

1 Corinthians 6:19 (NASB)

19 Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and that you are not your own?

1 Corinthians 6:20 (NKJV)

20 For you were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God’s.

1 Corinthians Chapter 7

1 Corinthians 7:1 (CJB)

1 Now to deal with the questions you wrote about: “Is it good for a man to keep away from women?”

1 Corinthians 7:2 (CJB)

2 Well, because of the danger of sexual immorality, let each man have his own wife and each woman her own husband.

1 Corinthians 7:3 (CJB)

3 The husband should give his wife what she is entitled to in the marriage relationship, and the wife should do the same for her husband.

1 Corinthians 7:4 (NIV)

4 The wife’s body does not belong to her alone but also to her husband. In the same way, the husband’s body does not belong to him alone but also to his wife.

1 Corinthians 7:5 (AMP)

5 Do not refuse and deprive and defraud each other [of your due marital rights], except perhaps by mutual consent for a time, so that you may devote yourselves unhindered to prayer. But afterwards resume marital relations, lest Satan tempt you [to sin] through your lack of restraint of sexual desire.

1 Corinthians 7:6 (AMP)

6 But I am saying this more as a matter of permission and concession, not as a command or regulation.

1 Corinthians 7:7 (AMP)

7 I wish that all men were like I myself am [in this matter of self-control]. But each has his own special gift from God, one of this kind and one of another.

1 Corinthians 7:8 (CJB)

8 Now to the single people and the widows I say that it is fine if they remain unmarried like me;

1 Corinthians 7:9 (CJB)

9 but if they can’t exercise self-control, they should get married; because it is better to get married than to keep burning with sexual desire.

1 Corinthians 7:10 (NIV)

10 To the married I give this command (not I, but the Lord): A wife must not separate from her husband.

1 Corinthians 7:11 (NIV)

11 But if she does, she must remain unmarried or else be reconciled to her husband. And a husband must not divorce his wife.

1 Corinthians 7:12 (NIV)

12 To the rest I say this (I, not the Lord): If any brother has a wife who is not a believer and she is willing to live with him, he must not divorce her.

1 Corinthians 7:13 (NIV)

13 And if a woman has a husband who is not a believer and he is willing to live with her, she must not divorce him.

1 Corinthians 7:14 (NIV)

14 For the unbelieving husband has been sanctified through his wife, and the unbelieving wife has been sanctified through her believing husband. Otherwise your children would be unclean, but as it is, they are holy.

1 Corinthians 7:15 (CJB)

15 But if the unbelieving spouse separates himself, let him be separated. In circumstances like these, the brother or sister is not enslaved — God has called you to a life of peace.

1 Corinthians 7:16 (NIV)

16 How do you know, wife, whether you will save your husband? Or, how do you know, husband, whether you will save your wife?

1 Corinthians 7:17 (NIV)

17 Nevertheless, each one should retain the place in life that the Lord assigned to him and to which God has called him. This is the rule I lay down in all the churches.

1 Corinthians 7:18 (NIV)

18 Was a man already circumcised when he was called? He should not become uncircumcised. Was a man uncircumcised when he was called? He should not be circumcised.

1 Corinthians 7:19 (CJB)

19 Being circumcised means nothing, and being uncircumcised means nothing; what does mean something is keeping God’s commandments.

1 Corinthians 7:20 (NIV2011)

20 Each person should remain in the situation they were in when God called them.

1 Corinthians 7:21 (CJB)

21 Were you a slave when you were called? Well, don’t let it bother you; although if you can gain your freedom, take advantage of the opportunity.

1 Corinthians 7:22 (CJB)

22 For a person who was a slave when he was called is the Lord’s freedman; likewise, someone who was a free man when he was called is a slave of the Messiah.

1 Corinthians 7:23 (CJB)

23 You were bought at a price, so do not become slaves of other human beings.

1 Corinthians 7:24 (NASB)

24 Brethren, each one is to remain with God in that condition in which he was called.

1 Corinthians 7:25 (NASB)

25 Now concerning virgins I have no command of the Lord, but I give an opinion as one who by the mercy of the Lord is trustworthy.

1 Corinthians 7:26 (CJB)

26 I suppose that in a time of stress like the present it is good for a person to stay as he is.

1 Corinthians 7:27 (CJB)

27 That means that if a man has a wife, he should not seek to be free of her; and if he is unmarried, he should not look for a wife.

1 Corinthians 7:28 (CJB)

28 But if you marry you do not sin, and if a girl marries she does not sin. It is just that those who get married will have the normal problems of married life, and I would rather spare you.

1 Corinthians 7:29 (AMP)

29 I mean, brethren, the appointed time has been winding down and it has grown very short. From now on, let even those who have wives be as if they had none,

1 Corinthians 7:30 (NIV)

30 those who mourn, as if they did not; those who are happy, as if they were not; those who buy something, as if it were not theirs to keep;

1 Corinthians 7:31 (NIV)

31 those who use the things of the world, as if not engrossed in them. For this world in its present form is passing away.

1 Corinthians 7:32 (NIV)

32 I would like you to be free from concern. An unmarried man is concerned about the Lord’s affairs–how he can please the Lord.

1 Corinthians 7:33 (NIV)

33 But a married man is concerned about the affairs of this world–how he can please his wife–

1 Corinthians 7:34 (NIV)

34 and his interests are divided. An unmarried woman or virgin is concerned about the Lord’s affairs: Her aim is to be devoted to the Lord in both body and spirit. But a married woman is concerned about the affairs of this world–how she can please her husband.

1 Corinthians 7:35 (CJB)

35 I am telling you this for your own benefit, not to put restrictions on you — I am simply concerned that you live in a proper manner and serve the Lord with undivided devotion.

1 Corinthians 7:36 (NASB)

36 But if any man thinks that he is acting unbecomingly toward his virgin daughter, if she is past her youth, and if it must be so, let him do what he wishes, he does not sin; let her marry.

1 Corinthians 7:37 (NASB)

37 But he who stands firm in his heart, being under no constraint, but has authority over his own will, and has decided this in his own heart, to keep his own virgin daughter, he will do well.

1 Corinthians 7:38 (NASB)

38 So then both he who gives his own virgin daughter in marriage does well, and he who does not give her in marriage will do better.

1 Corinthians 7:39 (CJB)

39 A wife is bound to her husband as long as he lives, but if the husband dies she is free to marry anyone she wishes, provided he is a believer in the Lord.

1 Corinthians 7:40 (NASB)

40 But in my opinion she is happier if she remains as she is; and I think that I also have the Spirit of God.

1 Corinthians Chapter 8

1 Corinthians 8:1 (NIV)

1 Now about food sacrificed to idols: We know that we all possess knowledge. Knowledge puffs up, but love builds up.

1 Corinthians 8:2 (CJB)

2 The person who thinks he “knows” something doesn’t yet know in the way he ought to know.

1 Corinthians 8:3 (NASB)

3 but if anyone loves God, he is known by Him.

1 Corinthians 8:4 (AMP)

4 In this matter, then, of eating food offered to idols, we know that an idol is nothing (has no real existence) and that there is no God but one.

1 Corinthians 8:5 (NIV)

5 For even if there are so-called gods, whether in heaven or on earth (as indeed there are many “gods” and many “lords”),

1 Corinthians 8:6 (CJB)

6 yet for us there is one God, the Father, from whom all things come and for whom we exist; and one Lord, Yeshua the Messiah, through whom were created all things and through whom we have our being.

1 Corinthians 8:7 (AMP)

7 Nevertheless, not all [believers] possess this knowledge. But some, through being all their lives until now accustomed to [thinking of] idols [as real and living], still consider the food [offered to an idol] as that sacrificed to an [actual] god; and their weak consciences become defiled and injured if they eat [it].

1 Corinthians 8:8 (AMP)

8 Now food [itself] will not cause our acceptance by God nor commend us to Him. Eating [food offered to idols] gives us no advantage; neither do we come short or become any worse if we do not eat [it].

1 Corinthians 8:9 (NIV)

9 Be careful, however, that the exercise of your freedom does not become a stumbling block to the weak.

1 Corinthians 8:10 (HCSB)

10 For if someone sees you, the one who has this knowledge, dining in an idol’s temple, won’t his weak conscience be encouraged to eat food offered to idols?

1 Corinthians 8:11 (HCSB)

11 Then the weak person, the brother for whom Christ died, is ruined by your knowledge.

1 Corinthians 8:12 (HCSB)

12 Now when you sin like this against the brothers and wound their weak conscience, you are sinning against Christ.

1 Corinthians 8:13 (HCSB)

13 Therefore, if food causes my brother to fall, I will never again eat meat, so that I won’t cause my brother to fall.

1 Corinthians Chapter 9

1 Corinthians 9:1 (NIV)

1 Am I not free? Am I not an apostle? Have I not seen Jesus our Lord? Are you not the result of my work in the Lord?

1 Corinthians 9:2 (NIV)

2 Even though I may not be an apostle to others, surely I am to you! For you are the seal of my apostleship in the Lord.

1 Corinthians 9:3 (NIV)

3 This is my defense to those who sit in judgment on me.

1 Corinthians 9:4 (AMP)

4 Have we not the right to our food and drink [at the expense of the churches]?

1 Corinthians 9:5 (NASB)

5 Do we not have a right to take along a believing wife, even as the rest of the apostles and the brothers of the Lord and Cephas?

1 Corinthians 9:6 (AMP)

6 Or is it only Barnabas and I who have no right to refrain from doing manual labor for a livelihood [in order to go about the work of the ministry]?

1 Corinthians 9:7 (AMP)

7 [Consider this:] What soldier at any time serves at his own expense? Who plants a vineyard and does not eat any of the fruit of it? Who tends a flock and does not partake of the milk of the flock?

1 Corinthians 9:8 (AMP)

8 Do I say this only on human authority and as a man reasons? Does not the Law endorse the same principle?

1 Corinthians 9:9 (NIV)

9 For it is written in the Law of Moses: “Do not muzzle an ox while it is treading out the grain.” Is it about oxen that God is concerned?

1 Corinthians 9:10 (NASB)

10 Or is He speaking altogether for our sake? Yes, for our sake it was written, because the plowman ought to plow in hope, and the thresher to thresh in hope of sharing the crops.

1 Corinthians 9:11 (NASB)

11 If we sowed spiritual things in you, is it too much to ask if we reap material things from you?

1 Corinthians 9:12 (NIV)

12 If others have this right of support from you, shouldn’t we have it all the more? But we did not use this right. On the contrary, we put up with anything rather than hinder the gospel of Christ.

1 Corinthians 9:13 (CJB)

13 Don’t you know that those who work in the Temple get their food from the Temple, and those who serve at the altar get a share of the sacrifices offered there?

1 Corinthians 9:14 (NLT)-M

14 In the same way, the Lord [has commanded] that those who preach the Good News should be supported by those who benefit from it.

1 Corinthians 9:15 (CJB)

15 But I have not made use of any of these rights. Nor am I writing now to secure them for myself, for I would rather die than be deprived of my ground for boasting!

1 Corinthians 9:16 (NASB)

16 For if I preach the gospel, I have nothing to boast of, for I am under compulsion; for woe is me if I do not preach the gospel.

1 Corinthians 9:17 (NASB)

17 For if I do this voluntarily, I have a reward; but if against my will, I have a stewardship entrusted to me.

1 Corinthians 9:18 (NKJV)

18 What is my reward then? That when I preach the gospel, I may present the gospel of Christ without charge, that I may not abuse my authority in the gospel.

1 Corinthians 9:19 (AMP)

19 For although I am free in every way from anyone’s control, I have made myself a bond servant to everyone, so that I might gain the more [for Christ].

1 Corinthians 9:20 (NIV)

20 To the Jews I became like a Jew, to win the Jews. To those under the law I became like one under the law (though I myself am not under the law), so as to win those under the law.

1 Corinthians 9:21 (NIV)

21 To those not having the law I became like one not having the law (though I am not free from God’s law but am under Christ’s law), so as to win those not having the law.

1 Corinthians 9:22 (NIV)

22 To the weak I became weak, to win the weak. I have become all things to all men so that by all possible means I might save some.

1 Corinthians 9:23 (CJB)

23 But I do it all because of the rewards promised by the Good News, so that I may share in them along with the others who come to trust.

1 Corinthians 9:24 (NIV)

24 Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize.

1 Corinthians 9:25 (NIV)

25 Everyone who competes in the games goes into strict training. They do it to get a crown that will not last; but we do it to get a crown that will last forever.

1 Corinthians 9:26 (NIV)

26 Therefore I do not run like a man running aimlessly; I do not fight like a man beating the air.

1 Corinthians 9:27 (NASB)

27 but I discipline my body and make it my slave, so that, after I have preached to others, I myself will not be disqualified.

1 Corinthians Chapter 10

1 Corinthians 10:1 (CJB)

1 For, brothers, I don’t want you to miss the significance of what happened to our fathers. All of them were guided by the pillar of cloud, and they all passed through the sea,

1 Corinthians 10:2 (NIV)

2 They were all baptized into Moses in the cloud and in the sea.

1 Corinthians 10:3 (NIV)

3 They all ate the same spiritual food

1 Corinthians 10:4 (NIV)

4 and drank the same spiritual drink; for they drank from the spiritual rock that accompanied them, and that rock was Christ.

1 Corinthians 10:5 (CJB)

5 Yet with the majority of them God was not pleased, so their bodies were strewn across the desert.

1 Corinthians 10:6 (NASB)

6 Now these things happened as examples for us, so that we would not crave evil things as they also craved.

1 Corinthians 10:7 (NIV)

7 Do not be idolaters, as some of them were; as it is written: “The people sat down to eat and drink and got up to indulge in pagan revelry.”

1 Corinthians 10:8 (NIV)

8 We should not commit sexual immorality, as some of them did–and in one day twenty-three thousand of them died.

1 Corinthians 10:9 (NASB)

9 Nor let us try the Lord, as some of them did, and were destroyed by the serpents.

1 Corinthians 10:10 (NASB)

10 Nor grumble, as some of them did, and were destroyed by the destroyer.

1 Corinthians 10:11 (NASB)

11 Now these things happened to them as an example, and they were written for our instruction, upon whom the ends of the ages have come.

1 Corinthians 10:12 (NASB)

12 Therefore let him who thinks he stands take heed that he does not fall.

1 Corinthians 10:13 (NASB)

13 No temptation has overtaken you but such as is common to man; and God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will provide the way of escape also, so that you will be able to endure it.

1 Corinthians 10:14 (NASB)

14 Therefore, my beloved, flee from idolatry.

1 Corinthians 10:15 (AMP)

15 I am speaking as to intelligent (sensible) men. Think over and make up your minds [for yourselves] about what I say. [I appeal to your reason and your discernment in these matters.]

1 Corinthians 10:16 (AMP)

16 The cup of blessing [of wine at the Lord’s Supper] upon which we ask [God’s] blessing, does it not mean [that in drinking it] we participate in and share a fellowship (a communion) in the blood of Christ (the Messiah)? The bread which we break, does it not mean [that in eating it] we participate in and share a fellowship (a communion) in the body of Christ?

1 Corinthians 10:17 (AMP)

17 For we [no matter how] numerous we are, are one body, because we all partake of the one Bread [the One Whom the communion bread represents].

1 Corinthians 10:18 (AMP)

18 Consider those [physically] people of Israel. Are not those who eat the sacrifices partners of the altar [united in their worship of the same God]?

1 Corinthians 10:19 (CJB)

19 So, what am I saying? That food sacrificed to idols has any significance in itself? or that an idol has significance in itself?

1 Corinthians 10:20 (NIV)

20 No, but the sacrifices of pagans are offered to demons, not to God, and I do not want you to be participants with demons.

1 Corinthians 10:21 (CJB)

21 You can’t drink both a cup of the Lord and a cup of demons, you can’t partake in both a meal of the Lord and a meal of demons.

1 Corinthians 10:22 (NIV)

22 Are we trying to arouse the Lord’s jealousy? Are we stronger than he?

1 Corinthians 10:23 (NASB)

23 All things are lawful, but not all things are profitable. All things are lawful, but not all things edify.

1 Corinthians 10:24 (NASB)

24 Let no one seek his own good, but that of his neighbor.

1 Corinthians 10:25 (NASB)

25 Eat anything that is sold in the meat market without asking questions for conscience’ sake;

1 Corinthians 10:26 (AMP)

26 For the [whole] earth is the Lord’s and everything that is in it.

1 Corinthians 10:27 (NASB)

27 If one of the unbelievers invites you and you want to go, eat anything that is set before you without asking questions for conscience’ sake.

1 Corinthians 10:28 (NASB)

28 But if anyone says to you, “This is meat sacrificed to idols,” do not eat it, for the sake of the one who informed you, and for conscience’ sake;

1 Corinthians 10:29 (NASB)

29 I mean not your own conscience, but the other man’s; for why is my freedom judged by another’s conscience?

1 Corinthians 10:30 (NASB)

30 If I partake with thankfulness, why am I slandered concerning that for which I give thanks?

1 Corinthians 10:31 (NASB)

31 Whether, then, you eat or drink or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.

1 Corinthians 10:32 (NASB)

32 Give no offense either to Jews or to Greeks or to the church of God;

1 Corinthians 10:33 (NASB)

33 just as I also please all men in all things, not seeking my own profit but the profit of the many, so that they may be saved.

1 Corinthians Chapter 11

1 Corinthians 11:1 (NIV)

1 Follow my example, as I follow the example of Christ.

1 Corinthians 11:2 (CJB)

2 Now I praise you because you have remembered everything I told you and observe the traditions just the way I passed them on to you.

1 Corinthians 11:3 (NIV)

3 Now I want you to realize that the head of every man is Christ, and the head of the woman is man, and the head of Christ is God.

1 Corinthians 11:4 (NIV)

4 Every man who prays or prophesies with his head covered dishonors his head.

1 Corinthians 11:5 (NIV)

5 And every woman who prays or prophesies with her head uncovered dishonors her head–it is just as though her head were shaved.

1 Corinthians 11:6 (NIV)

6 If a woman does not cover her head, she should have her hair cut off; and if it is a disgrace for a woman to have her hair cut or shaved off, she should cover her head.

1 Corinthians 11:7 (NIV)

7 A man ought not to cover his head, since he is the image and glory of God; but the woman is the glory of man.

1 Corinthians 11:8 (NIV)

8 For man did not come from woman, but woman from man;

1 Corinthians 11:9 (NASB)

9 for indeed man was not created for the woman’s sake, but woman for the man’s sake.

1 Corinthians 11:10 (NASB)

10 Therefore the woman ought to have a symbol of authority on her head, because of the angels.

1 Corinthians 11:11 (NIV)

11 In the Lord, however, woman is not independent of man, nor is man independent of woman.

1 Corinthians 11:12 (NIV)

12 For as woman came from man, so also man is born of woman. But everything comes from God.

1 Corinthians 11:13 (NIV)

13 Judge for yourselves: Is it proper for a woman to pray to God with her head uncovered?

1 Corinthians 11:14 (NIV)

14 Does not the very nature of things teach you that if a man has long hair, it is a disgrace to him,

1 Corinthians 11:15 (NIV)

15 but that if a woman has long hair, it is her glory? For long hair is given to her as a covering.

1 Corinthians 11:16 (AMP)-M

16 Now if anyone is disposed to be argumentative and contentious about this, we hold to and recognize no other custom [in worship] other than this, nor do all the churches of God.

1 Corinthians 11:17 (CJB)

17 But in giving you this next instruction I do not praise you, because when you meet together it does more harm than good!

1 Corinthians 11:18 (NIV)

18 In the first place, I hear that when you come together as a church, there are divisions among you, and to some extent I believe it.

1 Corinthians 11:19 (CJB)

19 (granted that there must be some divisions among you in order to show who are the ones in the right).

1 Corinthians 11:20 (AMP)

20 So when you gather for your meetings, it is not the supper instituted by the Lord that you eat,

1 Corinthians 11:21 (NIV)

21 for as you eat, each of you goes ahead without waiting for anybody else. One remains hungry, another gets drunk.

1 Corinthians 11:22 (NIV)

22 Don’t you have homes to eat and drink in? Or do you despise the church of God and humiliate those who have nothing? What shall I say to you? Shall I praise you for this? Certainly not!

1 Corinthians 11:23 (NIV)

23 For I received from the Lord what I also passed on to you: The Lord Jesus, on the night he was betrayed, took bread,

1 Corinthians 11:24 (NIV)

24 and when he had given thanks, he broke it and said, “This is my body, which is for you; do this in remembrance of me.”

1 Corinthians 11:25 (NASB)

25 In the same way He took the cup also after supper, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in My blood; do this, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of Me.”

1 Corinthians 11:26 (NASB)

26 For as often as you eat this bread and drink the cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death until He comes.

1 Corinthians 11:27 (NIV)

27 Therefore, whoever eats the bread or drinks the cup of the Lord in an unworthy manner will be guilty of sinning against the body and blood of the Lord.

1 Corinthians 11:28 (NIV)

28 A man ought to examine himself before he eats of the bread and drinks of the cup.

1 Corinthians 11:29 (NKJV)

29 For he who eats and drinks in an unworthy manner eats and drinks judgment to himself, not discerning the Lord’s body.

1 Corinthians 11:30 (CJB)

30 This is why many among you are weak and sick, and some have died!

1 Corinthians 11:31 (CJB)

31 If we would examine ourselves, we would not come under judgment.

1 Corinthians 11:32 (NASB)

32 But when we are judged, we are disciplined by the Lord so that we will not be condemned along with the world.

1 Corinthians 11:33 (AMP)

33 So then, my brothers, when you gather together to eat [the Lord’s Supper], wait for one another.

1 Corinthians 11:34 (NKJV)

34 But if anyone is hungry, let him eat at home, lest you come together for judgment. And the rest I will set in order when I come.

1 Corinthians Chapter 12

1 Corinthians 12:1 (NKJV)

1 Now concerning spiritual gifts, brethren, I do not want you to be ignorant:

1 Corinthians 12:2 (NLT2)

2 You know that when you were still pagans, you were led astray and swept along in worshiping speechless idols.

1 Corinthians 12:3 (NKJV)

3 Therefore I make known to you that no one speaking by the Spirit of God calls Jesus accursed, and no one can say that Jesus is Lord except by the Holy Spirit.

1 Corinthians 12:4 (NLT2)

4 There are different kinds of spiritual gifts, but the same Spirit is the source of them all.

1 Corinthians 12:5 (NASB)

5 And there are varieties of ministries, and the same Lord.

1 Corinthians 12:6 (KJV)-M

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

1 Corinthians 12:7 (7KB)

7 But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to each one for the profit of all: [So that through the nine different gifts (found within the three categories of gifts) (the Revelation Gifts, the Power Gifts and the Inspiration Gifts) the needs of the Messianic community will be met.]

1 Corinthians 12:8 (7KB)

8 From the Revelation gifts, one is given (Knowing Forthcoming Events) and to another is given (Knowing Existing Facts) and to another is given the (Discerning of Human Hearts)

1 Corinthians 12:9 (7KB)

9 From the Power Gifts, one is given (Empowerment of Faith) and to another (Gifts of Healing Specific Diseases) and to another the (Operating of Three-Types of Miracles)-including -(Enablement of Divine Power, Suspension of Laws of Nature and Unusual Signs).

1 Corinthians 12:10 (7KB)

10 From the Inspiration Gifts, one is given the (Gift of Simple Exhortation) to others are given the (Three-Types of Tongues-including Foreign Tongues, Private Tongues and Public Tongues) and to another is given the (Interpretation of Public Tongues)

1 Corinthians 12:11 (NKJV)

11 But one and the same Spirit works all these things, distributing to each one individually as He wills.

1 Corinthians 12:12 (NASB)

12 For even as the body is one and yet has many members, and all the members of the body, though they are many, are one body, so also is Christ.

1 Corinthians 12:13 (NASB)

13 For by one Spirit we were all baptized into one body, whether Jews or Greeks, whether slaves or free, and we were all made to drink of one Spirit.

1 Corinthians 12:14 (NIV2011)

14 Even so the body is not made up of one part but of many.

1 Corinthians 12:15 (NIV)

15 If the foot should say, “Because I am not a hand, I do not belong to the body,” it would not for that reason cease to be part of the body.

1 Corinthians 12:16 (NIV)

16 And if the ear should say, “Because I am not an eye, I do not belong to the body,” it would not for that reason cease to be part of the body.

1 Corinthians 12:17 (NIV)

17 If the whole body were an eye, where would the sense of hearing be? If the whole body were an ear, where would the sense of smell be?

1 Corinthians 12:18 (NIV)

18 But in fact God has arranged the parts in the body, every one of them, just as he wanted them to be.

1 Corinthians 12:19 (AMP)

19 But if [the whole] were all a single organ, where would the body be?

1 Corinthians 12:20 (NIV)

20 As it is, there are many parts, but one body.

1 Corinthians 12:21 (NIV)

21 The eye cannot say to the hand, “I don’t need you!” And the head cannot say to the feet, “I don’t need you!”

1 Corinthians 12:22 (NIV)

22 On the contrary, those parts of the body that seem to be weaker are indispensable,

1 Corinthians 12:23 (NIV)

23 and the parts that we think are less honorable we treat with special honor. And the parts that are unpresentable are treated with special modesty,

1 Corinthians 12:24 (NIV)

24 while our presentable parts need no special treatment. But God has combined the members of the body and has given greater honor to the parts that lacked it,

1 Corinthians 12:25 (NIV)

25 so that there should be no division in the body, but that its parts should have equal concern for each other.

1 Corinthians 12:26 (NIV)

26 If one part suffers, every part suffers with it; if one part is honored, every part rejoices with it.

1 Corinthians 12:27 (NIV)

27 Now you are the body of Christ, and each one of you is a part of it.

1 Corinthians 12:28 (7KB)

28 And God has placed in the church first of all apostles, second prophets, third teachers, then Working of Miracles (which includes Enablement of Divine Power, Suspension of Laws of Nature and Unusual Signs), then gifts of healing specific diseases), of helping, of guidance, and of different kinds of tongues (which includes Private Tongues, Public Tongues and Foreign Tongues).

1 Corinthians 12:29 (NIV)-M

29 Are all apostles? Are all prophets? Are all teachers? Do all operate with working of miracles?

1 Corinthians 12:30 (NIV)-M

30 Do all have gifts of healing specific diseases)? Do all speak in public tongues? Do all interpret public tongues?

1 Corinthians 12:31 (NIV)

31 Now eagerly desire the greater gifts. And yet I will show you the most excellent way.

Corinthians Chapter 13

1 Corinthians 13:1 (NIV)

1 If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal.

1 Corinthians 13:2 (NIV)

2 If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but have not love, I am nothing.

1 Corinthians 13:3 (NASB)

3 And if I give all my possessions to feed the poor, and if I surrender my body to be burned, but do not have love, it profits me nothing.

1 Corinthians 13:4 (AMP)

4 Love endures long and is patient and kind; love never is envious nor boils over with jealousy, is not boastful or vainglorious, does not display itself haughtily.

1 Corinthians 13:5 (AMP)

5 It is not conceited (arrogant and inflated with pride); it is not rude (unmannerly) and does not act unbecomingly. Love (God’s love in us) does not insist on its own rights or its own way, for it is not self-seeking; it is not touchy or fretful or resentful; it takes no account of the evil done to it [it pays no attention to a suffered wrong].

1 Corinthians 13:6 (AMP)

6 It does not rejoice at injustice and unrighteousness, but rejoices when right and truth prevail.

1 Corinthians 13:7 (AMP)

7 Love bears up under anything and everything that comes, is ever ready to believe the best of every person, its hopes are fadeless under all circumstances, and it endures everything [without weakening].

1 Corinthians 13:8 (NASB)

8 Love never fails; but if there are gifts of prophecy, they will be done away; if there are tongues, they will cease; if there is knowledge, it will be done away.

1 Corinthians 13:9 (AMP)

9 For our knowledge is fragmentary (incomplete and imperfect), and our prophecy (our teaching) is fragmentary (incomplete and imperfect).

1 Corinthians 13:10 (AMP)

10 But when the complete and perfect (total) comes, the incomplete and imperfect will vanish away (become antiquated, void, and superseded).

1 Corinthians 13:11 (AMP)

11 When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child; now that I have become a man, I am done with childish ways and have put them aside.

1 Corinthians 13:12 (CJB)

12 For now we see obscurely in a mirror, but then it will be face to face. Now I know partly; then I will know fully, just as God has fully known me.

1 Corinthians 13:13 (NIV)

13 And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.

1 Corinthians Chapter 14

1 Corinthians 14:1 (NIV)

1 Follow the way of love and eagerly desire spiritual gifts, especially the gift of prophecy.

1 Corinthians 14:2 (NIV)

2 For anyone who speaks in a tongue does not speak to men but to God. Indeed, no one understands him; he utters mysteries with his spirit.

1 Corinthians 14:3 (7KB)

3 But those who operate in Simple Exhortation speak edification and exhortation and comfort to others.

1 Corinthians 14:4 (NIV)

4 He who speaks in a tongue edifies himself, but he who prophesies edifies the church.

1 Corinthians 14:5 (NKJV)

5 I wish you all spoke with tongues, but even more that you prophesied; for he who prophesies is greater than he who speaks with tongues, unless indeed he interprets, that the church may receive edification.

1 Corinthians 14:6 (NIV)

6 Now, brothers, if I come to you and speak in tongues, what good will I be to you, unless I bring you some revelation or knowledge or prophecy or word of instruction?

1 Corinthians 14:7 (NIV)

7 Even in the case of lifeless things that make sounds, such as the flute or harp, how will anyone know what tune is being played unless there is a distinction in the notes?

1 Corinthians 14:8 (AMP)

8 And if the war bugle gives an uncertain (indistinct) call, who will prepare for battle?

1 Corinthians 14:9 (NIV)

9 So it is with you. Unless you speak intelligible words with your tongue, how will anyone know what you are saying? You will just be speaking into the air.

1 Corinthians 14:10 (NIV)

10 Undoubtedly there are all sorts of languages in the world, yet none of them is without meaning.

1 Corinthians 14:11 (NIV)

11 If then I do not grasp the meaning of what someone is saying, I am a foreigner to the speaker, and he is a foreigner to me.

1 Corinthians 14:12 (CJB)

12 Likewise with you: since you eagerly seek the things of the Spirit, seek especially what will help in edifying the congregation.

1 Corinthians 14:13 (NIV)-M

13 For this reason anyone who speaks in a public tongue should pray that he may interpret what he says.

1 Corinthians 14:14 (NIV)

14 For if I pray in a tongue, my spirit prays, but my mind is unfruitful.

1 Corinthians 14:15 (NKJV)

15 What is the conclusion then? I will pray with the spirit, and I will also pray with the understanding. I will sing with the spirit, and I will also sing with the understanding.

1 Corinthians 14:16 (NKJV)

16 Otherwise, if you bless with the spirit, how will he who occupies the place of the uninformed say “Amen” at your giving of thanks, since he does not understand what you say?

1 Corinthians 14:17 (NIV)

17 You may be giving thanks well enough, but the other man is not edified.

1 Corinthians 14:18 (7KB)

18 I thank my God I speak with Private tongues more than you all;

1 Corinthians 14:19 (NIV)

19 But in the church I would rather speak five intelligible words to instruct others than ten thousand words in a tongue.

1 Corinthians 14:20 (NIV)

20 Brothers, stop thinking like children. In regard to evil be infants, but in your thinking be adults.

1 Corinthians 14:21 (NIV)

21 In the Law it is written: “Through men of strange tongues and through the lips of foreigners I will speak to this people, but even then they will not listen to me,” says the Lord.

1 Corinthians 14:22 (NASB)-M

22 So then (Foreign tongues) are for a sign, not to those who believe but to unbelievers; but the (Gift of Edification, Exhortation and Comfort) is for a sign, not to unbelievers but to those who believe.

1 Corinthians 14:23 (NASB)-M

23 Therefore if the whole church assembles together and all speak in Private Tongues, (without the benefit of the interpretation of public tongues) and ungifted men or unbelievers enter, will they not say that you are mad (when the unbeliever hears everyone babbling away in strange languages?)

1 Corinthians 14:24 (NASB)-M

24 But if a (Word of Knowing Existing Facts) is manifest when an unbeliever or an ungifted man enters, he is convicted before all, he is called to account in front of them all;

1 Corinthians 14:25(NASB)-M

25 as the secrets of his heart are disclosed; and so he will fall on his face and worship God, declaring that God is certainly among you.

1 Corinthians 14:26 (NIV)

26 What then shall we say, brothers? When you come together, everyone has a hymn, or a word of instruction, a revelation, a tongue or an interpretation. All of these must be done for the strengthening of the church.

1 Corinthians 14:27 (7KB)

27 If anyone speaks in a Public Tongue, let there be two or at the most three, each in turn, and let one interpret.

1 Corinthians 14:28 (NKJV)

28 But if there is no interpreter, let him keep silent in church, and let him speak to himself and to God.

1 Corinthians 14:29 (NLT2)

29 Let two or three people prophesy, and let the others evaluate what is said.

1 Corinthians 14:30 (NKJV)

30 But if anything is revealed to another who sits by, let the first keep silent.

1 Corinthians 14:31 (NASB)

31 For you can all prophesy one by one, so that all may learn and all may be exhorted;

1 Corinthians 14:32 (NLT2)

32 Remember that people who prophesy are in control of their spirit and can take turns.

1 Corinthians 14:33 (NIV)

33 For God is not a God of disorder but of peace. As in all the congregations of the saints,

1 Corinthians 14:34 (NKJV)

34 Let your women keep silent in the churches, for they are not permitted to speak; but they are to be submissive, as the law also says.

1 Corinthians 14:35 (AMP)

35 But if there is anything they want to learn, they should ask their own husbands at home, for it is disgraceful for a woman to talk in church [for her to usurp and exercise authority over men in the church].

1 Corinthians 14:36 (AMP)

36 What! Did the word of the Lord originate with you [Corinthians], or has it reached only you?

1 Corinthians 14:37 (NKJV)

37 If anyone thinks himself to be a prophet or spiritual, let him acknowledge that the things which I write to you are the commandments of the Lord.

1 Corinthians 14:38 (CJB)

38 But if someone doesn’t recognize this, then let him remain unrecognized.

1 Corinthians 14:39 (NKJV)

39 Therefore, brethren, desire earnestly to prophesy, and do not forbid to speak with tongues.

1 Corinthians 14:40 (NASB)

40 But all things must be done properly and in an orderly manner.

1 Corinthians Chapter 15

1 Corinthians 15:1 (NIV)

1 Now, brothers, I want to remind you of the gospel I preached to you, which you received and on which you have taken your stand.

1 Corinthians 15:2 (NIV)

2 By this gospel you are saved, if you hold firmly to the word I preached to you. Otherwise, you have believed in vain.

1 Corinthians 15:3 (NKJV)

3 For I delivered to you first of all that which I also received: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures,

1 Corinthians 15:4 (NASB)

4 and that He was buried, and that He was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures,

1 Corinthians 15:5 (AMP)

5 And [also] that He appeared to Cephas (Peter), then to the Twelve.

1 Corinthians 15:6 (AMP)

6 Then later He showed Himself to more than five hundred brethren at one time, the majority of whom are still alive, but some have fallen asleep [in death].

1 Corinthians 15:7 (NKJV)

7 After that He was seen by James, then by all the apostles.

1 Corinthians 15:8 (CJB)

8 and last of all he was seen by me, even though I was born at the wrong time.

1 Corinthians 15:9 (NIV)

9 For I am the least of the apostles and do not even deserve to be called an apostle, because I persecuted the church of God.

1 Corinthians 15:10 (NASB)

10 But by the grace of God I am what I am, and His grace toward me did not prove vain; but I labored even more than all of them, yet not I, but the grace of God with me.

1 Corinthians 15:11 (NIV)

11 Whether, then, it was I or they, this is what we preach, and this is what you believed.

1 Corinthians 15:12 (AMP)

12 But now if Christ (the Messiah) is preached as raised from the dead, how is it that some of you say that there is no resurrection of the dead?

1 Corinthians 15:13 (AMP)

13 But if there is no resurrection of the dead, then Christ has not risen;

1 Corinthians 15:14 (NKJV)

14 And if Christ is not risen, then our preaching is empty and your faith is also empty.

1 Corinthians 15:15 (NKJV)

15 Yes, and we are found false witnesses of God, because we have testified of God that He raised up Christ, whom He did not raise up–if in fact the dead do not rise.

1 Corinthians 15:16 (CJB)

16 For if the dead are not raised, then the Messiah has not been raised either;

1 Corinthians 15:17 (NASB)

17 and if Christ has not been raised, your faith is worthless; you are still in your sins.

1 Corinthians 15:18 (CJB)

18 Also, if this is the case, those who died in union with the Messiah are lost.

1 Corinthians 15:19 (NASB)

19 If we have hoped in Christ in this life only, we are of all men most to be pitied.

1 Corinthians 15:20 (NKJV)

20 But now Christ is risen from the dead, and has become the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep.

1 Corinthians 15:21 (AMP)

21 For since [it was] through a man that death [came into the world, it is] also through a Man that the resurrection of the dead [has come].

1 Corinthians 15:22 (NIV)

22 For as in Adam all die, so in Christ all will be made alive.

1 Corinthians 15:23 (NASB)

23 But each in his own order: Christ the first fruits, after that those who are Christ’s at His coming,

1 Corinthians 15:24 (NASB)

24 then comes the end, when He hands over the kingdom to the God and Father, when He has abolished all rule and all authority and power.

1 Corinthians 15:25 (NASB)

25 For He must reign until He has put all His enemies under His feet.

1 Corinthians 15:26 (NASB)

26 The last enemy that will be abolished is death.

1 Corinthians 15:27 (CJB)

27 for “He put everything in subjection under his feet.” But when it says that “everything” has been subjected, obviously the word does not include God, who is himself the one subjecting everything to the Messiah.

1 Corinthians 15:28 (CJB)

28 Now when everything has been subjected to the Son, then he will subject himself to God, who subjected everything to him; so that God may be everything in everyone.

1 Corinthians 15:29 (AMP)

29 Otherwise, what do people mean by being [themselves] baptized in behalf of the dead? If the dead are not raised at all, why are people baptized for them?

1 Corinthians 15:30 (AMP)

30 [For that matter], why do I live [dangerously as I do, running such risks that I am] in peril every hour?

1 Corinthians 15:31 (NKJV)

31 I affirm, by the boasting in you which I have in Christ Jesus our Lord, I die daily.

1 Corinthians 15:32 (CJB)

32 If my fighting with “wild beasts” in Ephesus was done merely on a human basis, what do I gain by it? If dead people are not raised, we might as well live by the saying, “Let’s eat and drink, for tomorrow we die!”

1 Corinthians 15:33 (NASB)

33 Do not be deceived: “Bad company corrupts good morals.”

1 Corinthians 15:34 (CJB)

34 Come to your senses! Live righteously and stop sinning! There are some people who lack knowledge of God — I say this to your shame.

1 Corinthians 15:35 (CJB)

35 But someone will ask, “In what manner are the dead raised? What sort of body do they have?”

1 Corinthians 15:36 (NIV)

36 How foolish! What you sow does not come to life unless it dies.

1 Corinthians 15:37 (CJB)

37 Also, what you sow is not the body that will be, but a bare seed of, say, wheat or something else;

1 Corinthians 15:38 (CJB)

38 but God gives it the body he intended for it; and to each kind of seed he gives its own body.

1 Corinthians 15:39 (CJB)

39 Not all living matter is the same living matter; on the contrary, there is one kind for human beings, another kind of living matter for animals, another for birds and another for fish.

1 Corinthians 15:40 (CJB)

40 Further, there are heavenly bodies and earthly bodies; but the beauty of heavenly bodies is one thing, while the beauty of earthly bodies is something else.

1 Corinthians 15:41 (CJB)

41 The sun has one kind of beauty, the moon another, the stars yet another; indeed, each star has its own individual kind of beauty.

1 Corinthians 15:42 (CJB)

42 So it is with the resurrection of the dead. When the body is “sown,” it decays; when it is raised, it cannot decay.

1 Corinthians 15:43 (NIV)

43 it is sown in dishonor, it is raised in glory; it is sown in weakness, it is raised in power;

1 Corinthians 15:44 (NIV)

44 it is sown a natural body, it is raised a spiritual body. If there is a natural body, there is also a spiritual body.

1 Corinthians 15:45 (NKJV)

45 And so it is written, “The first man Adam became a living being.” The last Adam became a life-giving spirit.

1 Corinthians 15:46 (NIV)

46 The spiritual did not come first, but the natural, and after that the spiritual.

1 Corinthians 15:47 (NIV)

47 The first man was of the dust of the earth, the second man from heaven.

1 Corinthians 15:48 (NIV)

48 As was the earthly man, so are those who are of the earth; and as is the man from heaven, so also are those who are of heaven.

1 Corinthians 15:49 (NIV)

49 And just as we have borne the likeness of the earthly man, so shall we bear the likeness of the man from heaven.

1 Corinthians 15:50 (CJB)

50 Let me say this, brothers: flesh and blood cannot share in the Kingdom of God, nor can something that decays share in what does not decay.

1 Corinthians 15:51 (CJB)

51 Look, I will tell you a secret — not all of us will die! But we will all be changed!

1 Corinthians 15:52 (NIV)

52 in a flash, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed.

1 Corinthians 15:53 (CJB)

53 For this material which can decay must be clothed with imperishability, this which is mortal must be clothed with immortality.

1 Corinthians 15:54 (NKJV)

54 So when this corruptible has put on incorruption, and this mortal has put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written: “Death is swallowed up in victory.”

1 Corinthians 15:55 (NKJV)

55 “O Death, where is your sting? O Hades, where is your victory?”

1 Corinthians 15:56 (NIV)

56 The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law.

1 Corinthians 15:57 (NKJV)

57 But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.

1 Corinthians 15:58 (NKJV)

58 Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your labor is not in vain in the Lord.

1 Corinthians Chapter 16

1 Corinthians 16:1 (NKJV)

1 Now concerning the collection for the saints, as I have given orders to the churches of Galatia, so you must do also:

1 Corinthians 16:2 (NIV)

2 On the first day of every week, each one of you should set aside a sum of money in keeping with his income, saving it up, so that when I come no collections will have to be made.

1 Corinthians 16:3 (NIV)

3 Then, when I arrive, I will give letters of introduction to the men you approve and send them with your gift to Jerusalem.

1 Corinthians 16:4 (AMP)

4 If it seems worthwhile that I should go too, they will accompany me.

1 Corinthians 16:5 (CJB)

5 I will visit you after I have gone through Macedonia, for I am intending to pass through Macedonia,

1 Corinthians 16:6 (AMP)

6 But it may be that I will stay with you [for a while], perhaps even spend the winter, so that you may bring me forward [on my journey] to wherever I may go.

1 Corinthians 16:7 (AMP)

7 For I am unwilling to see you right now [just] in passing, but I hope later to remain for some time with you, if the Lord permits.

1 Corinthians 16:8 (AMP)

8 I will remain in Ephesus [however] until Pentecost,

1 Corinthians 16:9 (NLT2)-M

9 There is a wide-open door for a great work [of ministry] here, although many oppose me.

1 Corinthians 16:10 (CJB)

10 If Timothy comes, see that he has nothing to be afraid of while he is with you; for he is doing the Lord’s work, just as I am.

1 Corinthians 16:11 (CJB)

11 So let no one treat him with disrespect. Help him on his way in peace, so that he will return to me, for the brothers and I are expecting him.

1 Corinthians 16:12 (CJB)

12 As for brother Apollos, I strongly urged him to go and visit you along with the other brothers; and although it was not at all his desire to come at this time, he will come when he has the opportunity.

1 Corinthians 16:13 (NIV)

13 Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith; be men of courage; be strong.

1 Corinthians 16:14 (NASB)

14 Let all that you do be done in love.

1 Corinthians 16:15 (CJB)

15 Now, brothers, you know that the household of Stephanas were the first people in Achaia to put their trust in the Messiah, and they have devoted themselves to serving God’s people.

1 Corinthians 16:16 (CJB)

16 I urge you to submit yourselves to people like these and to everyone who works and toils with them.

1 Corinthians 16:17 (CJB)

17 I am glad that Stephanas and Fortunatus and Achaicus are here, because they have helped make up for your not being here.

1 Corinthians 16:18 (CJB)

18 They have refreshed my spirit, just as they have yours. I want you to show appreciation for people like these.

1 Corinthians 16:19 (NIV)

19 The churches in the province of Asia send you greetings. Aquila and Priscilla greet you warmly in the Lord, and so does the church that meets at their house.

1 Corinthians 16:20 (NASB)

20 All the brethren greet you. Greet one another with a holy kiss.

1 Corinthians 16:21 (NIV)

21 I, Paul, write this greeting in my own hand.

1 Corinthians 16:22 (NKJV)

22 If anyone does not love the Lord Jesus Christ, let him be accursed. O Lord, come!

1 Corinthians 16:23 (AMP)

23 The grace (favor and spiritual blessing) of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you.

1 Corinthians 16:24 (NKJV)

24 My love be with you all in Christ Jesus. Amen.
