3 And I, brethren, could not speak unto you as unto abspiritual, but as unto accarnal, even as unto dbabes in Christ. 2 I have fed you with emilk, and not with meat: ffor hitherto ye were not able to bear it, neither yet now are ye able. 3 For ye are yet carnal: for whereas there is among you genvying, and ghstrife, and ||divisions, are ye not carnal, and walk †as men? 4 For iwhile one saith, I am of Paul; and another, I am of jApollos; are ye not carnal?
5 Who then is Paul, and who is jApollos, but kministers by whom lye believed, meven as the Lord gave to every man? 6 nI have planted, joApollos watered; pbut God gave the increase. 7 So then qneither is he that planteth any thing, neither he that watereth; but God that giveth the increase. 8 Now he that planteth and he that watereth are one: rand every man shall receive his own reward according to his own labour. 9 For swe are labourers together with God: ye are God’s ||husbandry, ye are tGod’s building. 10 uAccording to the grace of God which is given unto me, as a wise masterbuilder, xI have laid the foundation, and another buildeth thereon. But let every man take heed how he buildeth thereupon. 11 For yother foundation can no man lay than that is laid, zwhich is Jesus Christ. 12 Now if any man build upon this foundation gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, stubble; 13 aEvery man’s work shall be made manifest: for bthe day cshall declare it, because dit †shall be revealed eby fire; and ethe fire shall ftry every man’s work of what sort it is. 14 If any man’s work abide which he hath built thereupon, ahe shall receive a reward. 15 If any man’s work shall be burned, ghe shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved; yet so as ehby fire. 16 iKnow ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that jthe Spirit of God dwelleth in you? 17 If any man ||defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are. 18 kLet no man deceive himself. lIf any man among you seemeth to be wise in mthis world, let him become a fool, that he may be wise. 19 For nthe wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, oHe taketh the wise in their own pcraftiness. 20 And again, qThe Lord knoweth the thoughts of the wise, that they are vain. 21 Therefore rlet no man glory sin men. For tall things are yours; 22 Whether Paul, or uApollos, or uCephas, or the world, or life, or death, or xthings present, or things to come; all are yours; 23 And yye are Christ’s; and zChrist is God’s.
