1 CORINTHIANS - Chapter 3

1 - And I, brethren, could not speak unto you as unto spiritual, but as unto carnal, even as unto babes in Christ.
2 - I have fed you with milk, and not with meat: for 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 envying, and strife, and divisions, are ye not carnal, and walk as men?
4 - For while one saith, I am of Paul; and another, I am of Apollos; are ye not carnal?
5 - Who then is Paul, and who is Apollos, but ministers by whom ye believed, even as the Lord gave to every man?
6 - I have planted, Apollos watered; but God gave the increase.
7 - So then neither 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: and every man shall receive his own reward according to his own labour.
9 - For we are labourers together with God: ye are God's husbandry, ye are God's building.
10 - According to the grace of God which is given unto me, as a wise masterbuilder, I have laid the foundation, and another buildeth thereon. But let every man take heed how he buildeth thereupon.
11 - For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ.
12 - Now if any man build upon this foundation gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, stubble;
13 - Every man's work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man's work of what sort it is.
14 - If any man's work abide which he hath built thereupon, he shall receive a reward.
15 - If any man's work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire.
16 - Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the 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 - Let no man deceive himself. If any man among you seemeth to be wise in this world, let him become a fool, that he may be wise.
19 - For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, He taketh the wise in their own craftiness.
20 - And again, The Lord knoweth the thoughts of the wise, that they are vain.
21 - Therefore let no man glory in men. For all things are your's;
22 - Whether Paul, or Apollos, or Cephas, or the world, or life, or death, or things present, or things to come; all are your's;
23 - And ye are Christ's; and Christ is God's.
