1 Corinthians 12:1–27

Now aconcerning spiritual gifts, brethren, bI would not have you ignorant. Ye know that cye were Gentiles, dcarried away unto these edumb idols, even as ye were led. Wherefore I give you to understand, that fno man speaking by the Spirit of God calleth Jesus ||accursed: and that gno man can say that Jesus is the Lord, but by the Holy Ghost. Now hthere are diversities of gifts, but ithe same Spirit. And kthere are ldifferences of ||administrations, but ithe same Lord. And there are diversities of moperations, but it is ithe same God which worketh all in nall. oBut the manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man to profit withal. For to one is given by the Spirit the word of pwisdom; to another the word of qknowledge by the same Spirit; To another rfaith sby the same Spirit; to another tthe gifts of healing by the same Spirit; 10 To another the mworking of umiracles; to another xprophecy; to another ydiscerning of spirits; to another zdivers kinds of tongues; to another athe interpretation of tongues: 11 But all these worketh that one and the selfsame Spirit, aadividing to every man severally bas he will.

12 For cas the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of that one body, cbeing many, are one body: dso also is Christ. 13 For eby one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, fwhether we be Jews or Gentiles, fwhether we be bond or free; and ghave been all made to drink into hone Spirit. 14 For the body is not one member, but many. 15 If the foot shall say, Because I am not the hand, I am not of the body; is it therefore not of the body? 16 And if the ear shall say, Because I am not the eye, I am not of the body; is it therefore not of the body? 17 If the whole body were an eye, where were the hearing? If the whole were hearing, where were the smelling? 18 But now ihath God set the members every one of them in the body, bas jit hath pleased him. 19 And if they were all one member, where were the body? 20 But now are they cmany members, yet but one body. 21 And the eye cannot say unto the hand, I have no need of thee: nor again the head to the feet, I have no need of you. 22 Nay, much more those members of the body, which seem to be more feeble, are necessary: 23 And those members of the body, which we think to be less honourable, upon these we ||bestow more abundant honour; and our kuncomely parts have more abundant comeliness. 24 For our comely parts have no need: but God hath tempered the body together, having given more abundant honour to that part which lacked: 25 That there should be no ||schism in the body; but that the members should have the same care one for another. 26 And whether one member suffer, all the members suffer with it; or one member be honoured, all the members lrejoice with it. 27 Now dmye are the body of Christ, and nmembers oin particular.
