Let a man so account of us, as of athe ministers of Christ, and bstewards of cthe mysteries of God. Moreover it is required in stewards, that a man be found dfaithful. But with me it is a very small thing that I should be ejudged of you, or of man’s judgment: yea, I ejudge not mine own self. For fI know nothing by myself; gyet am I not hereby justified: but he that ejudgeth me is the Lord. Therefore hjudge nothing before the time, until the Lord come, iwho both will bring to light the hidden things of darkness, and will make manifest the counsels of the hearts: and kthen shall every man have lpraise of God.

And these things, brethren, mI have nin a figure transferred to myself and to Apollos for your sakes; that ye might learn in us onot to think of men above that which is written, pthat no one of you qbe puffed up for one against another. For who rmaketh thee to differ from another? and swhat hast thou that thou didst not treceive? now if thou didst receive it, why dost thou glory, as if thou hadst not received it? Now ye are full, unow ye are rich, ye have reigned as kings without us: and xI would to God ye did reign, that we also might reign with you. For yI think that God hath set forth ||us the apostles last, zas it were appointed to death: for awe are made a spectacle unto the world, and to angels, and to men. 10 bWe are fools for Christ’s sake, but bbye are wise in Christ; cwe are weak, but ye are strong; ye are honourable, but we are despised. 11 Even unto this present hour we both dhunger, and dthirst, and deare naked, and fare buffeted, and have no certain dwellingplace; 12 And glabour, working with our own hands: hbeing reviled, we bless; ibeing persecuted, we suffer it: 13 Being defamed, we intreat: we are made jas the filth of the world, and are kthe offscouring of all things unto this day. 14 I write not these things to lshame you, but mas my beloved sons I warn you. 15 For though ye have ten thousand ninstructors in Christ, yet have ye not many fathers: for oin Christ Jesus I have begotten you through the gospel. 16 Wherefore I beseech you, pbe ye followers of me.
