Prophecy a Superior Gift
1 aPursue love, yet bdesire earnestly cspiritual gifts, but especially that you may dprophesy.
2 For one who aspeaks in a tongue does not speak to men but to God; for no one 1understands, but 2in his spirit he speaks bmysteries.
3 But one who prophesies speaks to men for aedification and bexhortation and consolation.
4 One who aspeaks in a tongue bedifies himself; but one who cprophesies bedifies the church.
5 Now I wish that you all aspoke in tongues, but beven more that you would prophesy; and greater is one who prophesies than one who aspeaks in tongues, unless he interprets, so that the church may receive cedifying.
