5 What then is Apollos? And what is Paul? They are servants through whom you believed, and each has the role the Lord has given. 6 I planted, r Apollos watered, but God gave the growth. 7 So then neither the one who plants nor the one who waters is anything, but only God who gives the growth. 8 Now the one planting and the one watering are one in purpose, and each will receive his own reward according to his own labor. 9 For we are God’s coworkers. s You are God’s field, God’s building. t 10 According to God’s grace that was given to me, I have laid a foundation as a skilled master builder, and another builds on it. But each one must be careful how he builds on it. 11 For no one can lay any other foundation u than what has been laid down. That foundation is Jesus Christ. 12 If anyone builds on that foundation with gold, silver, v costly stones, w wood, hay, or straw, 13 each one’s work will become obvious, for the day x will disclose it, because it will be revealed by fire; y the fire will test the quality of each one’s work. z 14 If anyone’s work that he has built survives, he will receive a reward. 15 If anyone’s work is burned up, it will be lost, but he will be saved; a yet it will be like an escape through fire. b c
