Chapter 3

Foundations for Living

1 And I, brethren, could not speak to you as to aspiritual men, but as to bmen of flesh, as to cinfants in Christ. 2 I gave you amilk to drink, not solid food; for you bwere not yet able to receive it. Indeed, even now you are not yet able, 3 for you are still fleshly. For since there is ajealousy and strife among you, are you not fleshly, and are you not walking 1blike mere men? 4 For when aone says, “I am of Paul,” and another, “I am of Apollos,” are you not mere bmen?

5 What then is Apollos? And what is Paul? aServants through whom you believed, even bas the Lord gave opportunity to each one. 6 aI planted, bApollos watered, but cGod was causing the growth. 7 So then neither the one who plants nor the one who waters is anything, but God who causes the growth. 8 Now he who plants and he who waters are one; but each will areceive his own 1reward according to his own labor. 9 For we are God’s afellow workers; you are God’s 1bfield, God’s cbuilding.

10 According to athe grace of God which was given to me, like a wise master builder bI laid a foundation, and canother is building on it. But each man must be careful how he builds on it. 11 For no man can lay a afoundation other than the one which is laid, which is Jesus Christ. 12 Now if any man builds on the foundation with gold, silver, 1precious stones, wood, hay, straw, 13 aeach man’s work will become evident; for bthe day will show it because it is to be revealed with fire, and the fire itself will test 1the quality of each man’s work. 14 If any man’s work which he has built on it remains, he will areceive a reward. 15 If any man’s work is burned up, he will suffer loss; but he himself will be saved, yet aso as through fire.

16 aDo you not know that byou are a 1temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you? 17 If any man destroys the 1temple of God, God will destroy him, for the 1temple of God is holy, and 2that is what you are.

18 aLet no man deceive himself. bIf any man among you thinks that he is wise in cthis age, he must become foolish, so that he may become wise. 19 For athe wisdom of this world is foolishness before God. For it is written, “He is bthe one who catches the wise in their craftiness”; 20 and again, “aThe Lord knows the reasonings of the wise, that they are useless.” 21 So then alet no one boast in men. For ball things belong to you, 22 awhether Paul or Apollos or Cephas or the world or blife or death or things present or things to come; all things belong to you, 23 and ayou belong to Christ; and bChrist belongs to God.

About New American Standard Bible: 1995 Update

The New American Standard Bible, long considered a favorite study Bible by serious students of the Scriptures, has been completely revised and updated in this new 1995 translation. Preserving the Lockman Foundation's standard of creating a literal translation of the original Greek, Hebrew, and Aramaic manuscripts, the 1995 NASB provides a literal translation that is very readable. Formalized language and outdated words and phrases have been replaced with their contemporary counterparts. In short, the 1995 NASB is a Bible translation that is very conducive to word-by-word study and is also able to be read (and understood) by the whole family.
