Corinthians Chapter 3

1 And Ibrethrencould not speak unto you as unto spiritualbut as unto carnaleven as unto babes in Christ.

2 I have fed you with milkand not with meatfor hitherto yewere not able to bear itneither yet now are ye able.

3 For ye are yet carnalfor whereas there is among you envyingand strifeand divisionsare ye not carnaland walk as men

4 For while one saithI am of Pauland anotherI am ofApollosare ye not carnal

5 Who then is Pauland who is Apollosbut ministers by whom yebelievedeven as the Lord gave to every man

6 I have plantedApollos wateredbut God gave the increase.

7 So then neither is he that planteth any thingneither he thatwaterethbut God that giveth the increase.

8 Now he that planteth and he that watereth are oneand everyman shall receive his own reward according to his own labour.

9 For we are labourers together with Godye are God shusbandryye are God s building.

10 According to the grace of God which is given unto meas awise masterbuilderI have laid the foundationand anotherbuildeth thereon. But let every man take heed how he buildeththereupon.

11 For other foundation can no man lay than that is laidwhichis Jesus Christ.

12 Now if any man build upon this foundation goldsilverprecious stoneswoodhaystubble

13 Every man s work shall be made manifestfor the day shalldeclare itbecause it shall be revealed by fireand the fireshall try every man s work of what sort it is.

14 If any man s work abide which he hath built thereuponheshall receive a reward.

15 If any man s work shall be burnedhe shall suffer lossbuthe himself shall be savedyet so as by fire.

16 Know ye not that ye are the temple of Godand that the Spiritof God dwelleth in you

17 If any man defile the temple of Godhim shall God destroyfor the temple of God is holywhich temple ye are.

18 Let no man deceive himself. If any man among you seemeth to bewise in this worldlet him become a foolthat he may bewise.

19 For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For itis writtenHe taketh the wise in their own craftiness.

20 And againThe Lord knoweth the thoughts of the wisethatthey are vain.

21 Therefore let no man glory in men. For all things are your s

22 Whether Paulor Apollosor Cephasor the worldor lifeordeathor things presentor things to comeall are your s

23 And ye are Christ sand Christ is God s.
