Notes on First Corinthians
From the Original 1599 Geneva Bible Notes

1Co 1:1

1:1 Paul, {1} called [to be] an {2} apostle of Jesus Christ through the will of God, and {3} Sosthenes [our] brother,

1Co 1:2

1:2 {4} Unto the church of God which is at Corinth, to them that are {5} sanctified in {a} Christ Jesus, {b} called [to be] saints, with all that in every place {c} call upon the name of Jesus Christ our Lord, both theirs and ours:

1Co 1:3

1:3 {6} Grace [be] unto you, and peace, from God our Father, and [from] the Lord Jesus Christ.

1Co 1:4

1:4 {7} I thank my God always on your behalf, for the grace of God which is given you by Jesus Christ;

1Co 1:5

1:5 That in every thing ye are enriched by him, {8} in {d} all utterance, and [in] all knowledge;

1Co 1:6

1:6 {9} Even as the testimony of Christ was {e} confirmed in you:

1Co 1:7

1:7 So that ye come behind in no gift; {10} waiting for the {f} coming of our Lord Jesus Christ:

1Co 1:8

1:8 {11} Who shall also confirm you unto the end, [that ye may be] {g} blameless in the day of our Lord Jesus Christ.

1Co 1:9

1:9 God [is] {h} faithful, by whom ye were called unto the fellowship of his Son Jesus Christ our Lord.

1Co 1:10

1:10 {12} Now I beseech you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that {13} ye all speak the same thing, and [that] there be no divisions among you; but [that] ye be {i} perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment.

1Co 1:11

1:11 {14} For it hath been declared unto me of you, my brethren, by them [which are of the house] of Chloe, that there are contentions among you.

1Co 1:12

1:12 Now {k} this I say, that every one of you saith, I am of Paul; and I of Apollos; and I of Cephas; and I of Christ.

1Co 1:13

1:13 {15} Is Christ divided? was {16} Paul crucified for you? or were ye {17} baptized in the name of Paul?

1Co 1:14

1:14 {18} I thank God that I baptized none of you, but Crispus and Gaius;

1Co 1:17

1:17 {19} For Christ sent me not to baptize, but to preach the gospel: {20} not with {l} wisdom of words, lest the {21} cross of Christ should be made of none effect.

1Co 1:18

1:18 For the {m} preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the {n} power of God.

1Co 1:19

1:19 {22} For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent.

1Co 1:20

1:20 Where [is] the wise? where [is] the {o} scribe? where [is] the {p} disputer of this world? hath not God made foolish the wisdom of this world?

1Co 1:21

1:21 {23} For after that in the {q} wisdom of God the {r} world by wisdom knew not God, {24} it pleased God by the {s} foolishness of preaching to save them that believe.

1Co 1:22

1:22 {25} For the Jews require a sign, and the Greeks seek after wisdom:

1Co 1:26

1:26 {26} For ye see your {t} calling, brethren, how that not many wise men {u} after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, [are called]:

1Co 1:28

1:28 And base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, [yea], and things which {x} are not, to bring to {y} nought things that are:

1Co 1:29

1:29 That no {z} flesh should glory in his presence.

1Co 1:30

1:30 But {a} of him are ye in Christ Jesus, {27} who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption:

1Co 1:31

1:31 That, according as it is written, {b} He that glorieth, let him glory in the Lord.

1Co 2:1

2:1 And {1} I, brethren, when I came to you, came not with excellency of speech or of wisdom, declaring unto you the {a} testimony of God.

1Co 2:2

2:2 For I {b} determined not to know any thing among you, save Jesus Christ, and him crucified.

1Co 2:3

2:3 And I was with you in {c} weakness, and in fear, and in much trembling.

1Co 2:4

2:4 And my speech and my preaching [was] not with enticing words of man's wisdom, {2} but in {d} demonstration of the Spirit and of power:

1Co 2:5

2:5 {3} That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God.

1Co 2:6

2:6 {4} Howbeit we speak wisdom among them that are {e} perfect: yet not the wisdom of this world, nor of the {f} princes of this world, that come to nought:

1Co 2:7

2:7 {5} But we speak the wisdom of God in a {g} mystery, [even] the hidden [wisdom], {6} which God ordained before the world unto our glory:

1Co 2:8

2:8 {7} Which none of the princes of this world knew: for had they known [it], they would not have crucified the {h} Lord of glory.

1Co 2:9

2:9 {8} But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the {i} heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.

1Co 2:10

2:10 {9} But God hath revealed [them] unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit {k} searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God.

1Co 2:11

2:11 {10} For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the {l} spirit of man which is in him? even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God.

1Co 2:12

2:12 Now we have received, not the {m} spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; {11} that we might {n} know the things that are freely given to us of God.

1Co 2:13

2:13 {12} Which things also we speak, not in the words which man's wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; {o} comparing spiritual things with spiritual.

1Co 2:14

2:14 {13} But the {p} natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know [them], because they are {q} spiritually discerned.

1Co 2:15

2:15 {14} But he that is spiritual {r} judgeth all things, yet {15} he himself is judged of {s} no man.

1Co 2:16

2:16 {16} For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may {t} instruct him? But we have {u} the mind of Christ.

1Co 3:1

3:1 And {1} I, brethren, could not speak unto you as unto spiritual, but as unto {a} carnal, [even] as unto babes in Christ.

1Co 3:2

3:2 I have fed you with milk, and not with {b} meat: for hitherto ye were not {c} able [to bear it], neither yet now are ye able.

1Co 3:3

3:3 For ye are yet carnal: for whereas [there is] among you envying, and strife, and divisions, are ye not carnal, and walk as {d} men?

1Co 3:5

3:5 {2} Who then is Paul, and who [is] Apollos, but ministers by whom ye believed, even as the Lord gave to every man?

1Co 3:6

3:6 {3} I have planted, Apollos watered; but God gave the increase.

1Co 3:9

3:9 For we are {e} labourers together with God: ye are God's husbandry, [ye are] God's building.

1Co 3:10

3:10 According to the grace of God which is given unto me, as a wise masterbuilder, I have laid the foundation, and another buildeth thereon. {4} But let every man take heed how he buildeth thereupon.

1Co 3:11

3:11 {5} For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ.

1Co 3:12

3:12 {6} Now if any man build upon this foundation gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, stubble;

1Co 3:13

3:13 {7} 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.

1Co 3:15

3:15 If any man's work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but {8} he himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire.

1Co 3:16

3:16 {9} Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and [that] the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?

1Co 3:17

3:17 If any man {f} defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which [temple] ye are.

1Co 3:18

3:18 {10} 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.

1Co 3:19

3:19 For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, He {g} taketh the wise in their own craftiness.

1Co 3:21

3:21 {11} Therefore let no man {h} glory in men. For all things are {i} yours;

1Co 3:22

3:22 Whether Paul, or Apollos, or Cephas, or the {12} world, or life, or death, or things present, or things to come; all are yours;

1Co 4:1

4:1 Let {1} a {a} man so account of us, as of the ministers of Christ, and stewards of the mysteries of God.

1Co 4:2

4:2 {2} Moreover it is required in stewards, that a man be found faithful.

1Co 4:3

4:3 {3} But with me it is a very small thing that I should be judged of you, {4} or of man's {b} judgment: yea, {5} I judge not mine own self.

1Co 4:4

4:4 For I know nothing by myself; yet am I not hereby justified: but he that judgeth me is the {c} Lord.

1Co 4:5

4:5 {6} Therefore judge nothing before the time, until the Lord come, who both will bring to light the hidden things of darkness, and will make manifest the counsels of the hearts: and then shall every man have {d} praise of God.

1Co 4:6

4:6 {7} And these things, brethren, I have in a figure transferred to myself and [to] Apollos for your sakes; that ye might learn {e} in us not to think [of men] above that which is written, that no one of you be puffed up for one against another.

1Co 4:7

4:7 {8} For who maketh thee to differ [from another]? and what hast thou that thou didst not receive? now if thou didst receive [it], why dost thou glory, as if {f} thou hadst not received [it]?

1Co 4:8

4:8 {9} Now ye are full, now ye are rich, ye have reigned as kings without us: and I would to God ye did reign, that we also might reign with you.

1Co 4:9

4:9 For I think that God hath set forth us the apostles last, as it were appointed to death: for we are made a {g} spectacle unto the world, and to angels, and to men.

1Co 4:13

4:13 Being defamed, we intreat: we are made as the {h} filth of the world, [and are] the offscouring of all things unto this day.

1Co 4:14

4:14 {10} I write not these things to shame you, but as my beloved sons I warn [you].

1Co 4:17

4:17 For this cause have I sent unto you Timotheus, who is my beloved son, and faithful in the Lord, who shall bring you into remembrance of my {i} ways which be in Christ, as I teach every where in every church.

1Co 4:18

4:18 {11} Now some are puffed up, as though I would not come to you.

1Co 4:19

4:19 But I will come to you shortly, if the Lord will, and will know, not the {k} speech of them which are puffed up, but the power.

1Co 4:21

4:21 {12} What will ye? shall I come unto you with a rod, or in love, and [in] the {l} spirit of meekness?

1Co 5:1

5:1 It is {1} reported commonly [that there is] fornication among you, and such fornication as is not so much as named among the Gentiles, that one should have his father's wife.

1Co 5:2

5:2 {2} And ye are puffed up, and have not rather mourned, that he that hath done this deed might be taken away from among you.

1Co 5:3

5:3 {3} For I verily, as absent in body, but present in {a} spirit, have judged already, as though I were present, [concerning] him that hath so done this deed,

1Co 5:4

5:4 In the {b} name of our Lord Jesus Christ, when ye are gathered together, and my spirit, {4} with the power of our Lord Jesus Christ,

1Co 5:5

5:5 {5} To {c} deliver such an one unto Satan for the {6} destruction of the flesh, that the spirit may be saved in the day of the Lord Jesus.

1Co 5:6

5:6 {7} Your glorying {d} [is] not good. Know ye not that a little leaven leaveneth the whole lump?

1Co 5:7

5:7 {8} Purge out therefore the old leaven, that ye may be a new {e} lump, as ye are unleavened. For even Christ our {f} passover is sacrificed for us:

1Co 5:8

5:8 Therefore let us keep the {g} feast, not with old leaven, neither with the leaven of malice and wickedness; but with the unleavened [bread] of sincerity and truth.

1Co 5:9

5:9 {9} I wrote unto you in an epistle not to company with fornicators:

1Co 5:10

5:10 Yet not {h} altogether with the fornicators of this world, or with the covetous, or extortioners, or with idolaters; for then must ye needs go out of the world.

1Co 5:12

5:12 {10} For what have I to do to judge them also that are without? do not ye judge them that are within?

1Co 6:1

6:1 Dare {1} {a} any of you, having a matter against another, go to law {b} before the unjust, {2} and not before the saints?

1Co 6:2

6:2 {3} Do ye not know that the saints shall judge the world? and if the world shall be judged by you, are ye unworthy to judge the smallest matters?

1Co 6:4

6:4 {4} If then ye have {c} judgments of things pertaining to this life, set them to judge who are {d} least esteemed in the church.

1Co 6:5

6:5 {5} I speak to your shame. Is it so, that there is not a wise man among you? no, not one that shall be able to judge between his brethren?

1Co 6:7

6:7 {6} Now therefore there is utterly a {e} fault among you, because ye go to law one with another. {7} Why do ye not rather take wrong? why do ye not rather [suffer yourselves to] be defrauded?

1Co 6:9

6:9 Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? {8} Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind,

1Co 6:11

6:11 And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the {f} name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.

1Co 6:12

6:12 {9} {g} All things are lawful unto me, but all things are not expedient: all things are lawful for me, but I will not be brought under the {h} power of any.

1Co 6:13

6:13 {10} Meats for the belly, and the belly for meats: but God shall destroy both it and them. Now the body [is] not for fornication, but for the Lord; and the Lord for the body.

1Co 6:15

6:15 {11} Know ye not that your bodies are the members of Christ? shall I then take the members of Christ, and make [them] the members of an harlot? God forbid.

1Co 6:16

6:16 {12} What? know ye not that he which is joined to an harlot is one body? for {i} two, saith he, shall be one flesh.

1Co 6:18

6:18 {13} Flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is without the body; but he that committeth fornication sinneth against his own body.

1Co 6:19

6:19 {14} What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost [which is] in you, which ye have of God, and {15} ye are not your own?

1Co 7:1

7:1 Now {1} concerning the things {a} whereof ye wrote unto me: [It is] {b} good for a man not to touch a woman.

1Co 7:3

7:3 {2} Let the husband render unto the wife {c} due benevolence: and likewise also the wife unto the husband.

1Co 7:4

7:4 {3} The wife hath not power of her own body, but the husband: and likewise also the husband hath not power of his own body, but the wife.

1Co 7:5

7:5 Defraud ye not one the other, {4} except [it be] with consent for a time, that ye may {d} give yourselves to fasting and prayer; and come together again, that Satan tempt you not for your incontinency.

1Co 7:6

7:6 {5} But I speak this by permission, [and] not of commandment.

1Co 7:7

7:7 For I {e} would that all men were even as I myself. But every man hath his proper gift of God, one after this manner, and another after that.

1Co 7:8

7:8 {6} I say therefore to the {f} unmarried and widows, It is good for them if they abide even as I.

1Co 7:9

7:9 But if they cannot contain, let them marry: for it is better to marry than to {g} burn.

1Co 7:10

7:10 {7} And unto the married I command, [yet] not I, but the Lord, Let not the wife depart from [her] husband:

1Co 7:12

7:12 {8} But to the rest speak I, not the Lord: If any brother hath a wife that believeth not, and she be pleased to dwell with him, let him not put her away.

1Co 7:14

7:14 {9} For the unbelieving husband is {h} sanctified by the {i} wife, and the unbelieving wife is sanctified by the {k} husband: else were your children unclean; but now are they {l} holy.

1Co 7:15

7:15 {10} But if the unbelieving depart, let him depart. A brother or a sister is not under bondage in {m} such [cases]: {11} but God hath called us to peace.

1Co 7:17

7:17 {12} But as God hath distributed to every man, as the Lord hath {n} called every one, so let him walk. And so ordain I in all churches.

1Co 7:18

7:18 {13} Is any man called being circumcised? let him not {o} become uncircumcised. Is any called in uncircumcision? let him not be circumcised.

1Co 7:21

7:21 Art thou called [being] a servant? {p} care not for it: but if thou mayest be made free, use [it] rather.

1Co 7:22

7:22 For he that is called in the {q} Lord, [being] a servant, is the Lord's freeman: likewise also he that is called, [being] free, is Christ's servant.

1Co 7:23

7:23 {14} Ye are bought with a price; be not ye the servants of men.

1Co 7:24

7:24 {15} Brethren, let every man, wherein he is called, therein abide with {r} God.

1Co 7:25

7:25 {16} Now concerning virgins I have no commandment of the Lord: yet I give my {s} judgment, as {t} one that hath obtained mercy of the Lord to be faithful.

1Co 7:26

7:26 I suppose therefore that {u} this is good for the {x} present distress, [I say], that [it is] good for a man so to be.

1Co 7:28

7:28 But and if thou marry, thou hast not sinned; and if a virgin marry, she hath not sinned. Nevertheless such shall have trouble in the {y} flesh: but I {z} spare you.

1Co 7:29

7:29 But this I say, brethren, the time [is] {a} short: it remaineth, that both they that have wives be as though they had none;

1Co 7:30

7:30 And they that {b} weep, as though they wept not; and they that rejoice, as though they rejoiced not; and they that buy, as though they possessed not;

1Co 7:31

7:31 And they that use this {c} world, as not abusing [it]: for the {d} fashion of this world passeth away.

1Co 7:33

7:33 But he that is married {e} careth for the things that are of the world, how he may please [his] wife.

1Co 7:34

7:34 There is difference [also] between a wife and a virgin. The unmarried woman careth for the things of the Lord, that she may be holy both in body and in {f} spirit: but she that is married careth for the things of the world, how she may please [her] husband.

1Co 7:35

7:35 And this I speak for your own {g} profit; not that I may cast a snare upon you, but for that which is comely, and that ye may attend upon the Lord without distraction.

1Co 7:36

7:36 {17} But if any man think that he behaveth himself uncomely toward his virgin, if she pass the flower of [her] age, and need so require, let him do what he will, he {h} sinneth not: let them marry.

1Co 7:37

7:37 Nevertheless he that standeth stedfast in his {i} heart, having no {k} necessity, but hath power over his own will, and hath so decreed in his heart that he will keep his virgin, doeth well.

1Co 7:38

7:38 So then he that giveth [her] in marriage doeth well; but he that giveth [her] not in marriage doeth {l} better.

1Co 7:39

7:39 {18} The wife is bound by the {m} law as long as her husband liveth; but if her husband be dead, she is at liberty to be married to whom she will; only in the {n} Lord.

1Co 8:1

8:1 Now {1} as touching things offered unto idols, we know that we {a} all have knowledge. Knowledge {b} puffeth up, but charity {c} edifieth.

1Co 8:4

8:4 {2} As concerning therefore the eating of those things that are offered in sacrifice unto {d} idols, we know that an idol [is] {e} nothing in the world, and that [there is] none other God but one.

1Co 8:6

8:6 But to us [there is but] one God, the Father, {f} of whom [are] all things, and we {g} in him; and {h} one Lord Jesus Christ, {i} by whom [are] all things, and we by him.

1Co 8:7

8:7 {3} Howbeit [there is] not in every man that knowledge: for {4} some with {k} conscience of the idol unto this hour eat [it] as a thing offered unto an idol; and their conscience being weak is defiled.

1Co 8:8

8:8 {5} But meat commendeth us not to God: for neither, if we eat, are we the better; neither, if we eat not, are we the worse.

1Co 8:10

8:10 {6} For if any man see thee which hast knowledge sit at meat in the idol's temple, shall not the conscience of him which is weak be emboldened to eat those things which are offered to idols;

1Co 8:11

8:11 {7} And through thy knowledge shall the weak brother perish, for whom Christ died?

1Co 8:12

8:12 {8} But when ye sin so against the brethren, and wound their weak conscience, ye sin against Christ.

1Co 8:13

8:13 {9} Wherefore, if meat make my brother to offend, I will eat no flesh while the world standeth, lest I make my brother to offend.

1Co 9:1

9:1 Am {1} I not an apostle? am I not free? {2} have I not seen Jesus Christ our Lord? are not ye {a} my work in the Lord?

1Co 9:2

9:2 If I be not an apostle unto others, yet doubtless I am to you: for the {b} seal of mine apostleship are ye in the Lord.

1Co 9:3

9:3 {3} Mine answer to them that do {c} examine me is this,

1Co 9:4

9:4 {4} Have we not power to {d} eat and to drink?

1Co 9:5

9:5 Have we not power to lead about a {e} sister, a wife, as well as other apostles, and [as] the brethren of the Lord, and Cephas?

1Co 9:6

9:6 Or I only and Barnabas, have not we power to {f} forbear working?

1Co 9:7

9:7 {5} Who {g} goeth a warfare any time at his own charges? who planteth a vineyard, and eateth not of the fruit thereof? or who feedeth a flock, and eateth not of the milk of the flock?

1Co 9:8

9:8 {6} Say I these things {h} as a man? or saith not the law the same also?

1Co 9:9

9:9 For it is written in the law of Moses, Thou shalt not muzzle the mouth of the ox that treadeth out the corn. Doth God take care for {i} oxen?

1Co 9:11

9:11 {7} If we have sown unto you spiritual things, [is it] a great thing if we shall reap your carnal things?

1Co 9:12

9:12 {8} If others be partakers of [this] {k} power over you, [are] not we rather? Nevertheless we have not used this power; but suffer all things, lest we should hinder the gospel of Christ.

1Co 9:13

9:13 {9} Do ye not know that they which minister about holy things live [of the {l} things] of the temple? and they which wait at the altar are {m} partakers with the altar?

1Co 9:14

9:14 Even so hath the Lord ordained that they which preach the gospel should live {n} of the gospel.

1Co 9:15

9:15 But I have used none of these things: {10} neither have I written these things, that it should be so done unto me: for [it were] better for me to die, than that any man should make my glorying void.

1Co 9:18

9:18 What is my reward then? [Verily] that, when I preach the gospel, I may make the gospel of Christ {o} without charge, that I abuse not my power in the gospel.

1Co 9:20

9:20 And unto the Jews I became as a Jew, that I might gain the Jews; to them that are under the {p} law, as under the law, that I might gain them that are under the law;

1Co 9:22

9:22 To the weak became I as weak, that I might gain the weak: I am made all things to {q} all [men], that I might by all means save some.

1Co 9:23

9:23 And this I do for the gospel's sake, that I might be partaker thereof with {r} [you].

1Co 9:24

9:24 {11} Know ye not that they which run in a race run all, but one receiveth the prize? So run, that ye may obtain.

1Co 9:25

9:25 And every man that striveth for the mastery is {s} temperate in all things. Now they [do it] to obtain a corruptible crown; but we an incorruptible.

1Co 9:27

9:27 But I keep under my {t} body, and bring [it] into subjection: lest that by any means, when I have preached to others, I myself should be {u} a castaway.

1Co 10:1

10:1 Moreover, {1} brethren, I would not that ye should be ignorant, how that all our {a} fathers were under the cloud, and all passed through the sea;

1Co 10:2

10:2 {2} And were all {b} baptized unto {c} Moses in the cloud and in the sea;

1Co 10:3

10:3 And did all eat the {d} same spiritual {e} meat;

1Co 10:4

10:4 And did all drink the same spiritual drink: for they drank of that spiritual Rock that {f} followed them: and that Rock was {g} Christ.

1Co 10:6

10:6 {3} Now these things were our {h} examples, to the intent we should not lust after evil things, as they also lusted.

1Co 10:9

10:9 Neither let us tempt {i} Christ, as some of them also tempted, and were destroyed of serpents.

1Co 10:11

10:11 Now all these things happened unto them for ensamples: and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the {k} ends of the world are come.

1Co 10:12

10:12 {4} Wherefore let him that thinketh he standeth take heed lest he fall.

1Co 10:13

10:13 There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to {l} man: but God [is] faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also {m} make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear [it].

1Co 10:15

10:15 {5} I speak as to wise men; judge ye what I say.

1Co 10:16

10:16 The cup of {n} blessing which we bless, is it not the {o} communion of the blood of Christ? The bread which we break, is it not the communion of the body of Christ?

1Co 10:18

10:18 Behold Israel after the {p} flesh: are not they which eat of the sacrifices {q} partakers of the altar?

1Co 10:20

10:20 But I [say], that the things which the Gentiles sacrifice, they sacrifice to devils, and not to God: and I would not that ye should have {r} fellowship with devils.

1Co 10:21

10:21 Ye cannot drink the cup of the Lord, and the {s} cup of devils: ye cannot be partakers of the Lord's table, and of the table of devils.

1Co 10:23

10:23 {6} {t} All things are lawful for me, but all things are not expedient: all things are lawful for me, but all things edify not.

1Co 10:25

10:25 {7} Whatsoever is sold in the {u} shambles, [that] eat, asking no question for conscience sake:

1Co 10:26

10:26 For the earth [is] the Lord's, and the {x} fulness thereof.

1Co 10:29

10:29 Conscience, I say, not thine own, but of the other: {8} for why is my liberty judged of another [man's] conscience?

1Co 10:30

10:30 For if I by {y} grace be a partaker, why am I evil spoken of for that for which I give thanks?

1Co 10:31

10:31 {9} Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God.

1Co 11:2

11:2 {1} Now I praise you, brethren, that ye remember me in all things, and keep the ordinances, as I delivered [them] to you.

1Co 11:3

11:3 {2} But I would have you know, that the head of every man is Christ; and the head of the woman [is] the man; and the {a} head of Christ [is] God.

1Co 11:4

11:4 {3} Every {b} man praying or prophesying, having [his] head covered, dishonoureth his head.

1Co 11:5

11:5 {4} But every woman that prayeth or prophesieth with [her] head uncovered dishonoureth her head: {5} for that is even all one as if she were shaven.

1Co 11:7

11:7 {6} For a man indeed ought not to cover [his] head, forasmuch as he is the image and glory of God: but the woman is the glory of the man.

1Co 11:8

11:8 {7} For the man is not of the woman; but the woman of the man.

1Co 11:9

11:9 {8} Neither was the man created for the woman; but the woman for the man.

1Co 11:10

11:10 {9} For this cause ought the woman to have {c} power on [her] head because of the {10} angels.

1Co 11:11

11:11 {11} Nevertheless neither is the man without the woman, neither the woman without the man, {d} in the Lord.

1Co 11:13

11:13 {12} Judge in yourselves: is it comely that a woman pray unto God uncovered?

1Co 11:15

11:15 But if a woman have long hair, it is a glory to her: for [her] hair is given her for a {e} covering.

1Co 11:16

11:16 {13} But if any man seem to be contentious, we have no such custom, neither the churches of God.

1Co 11:17

11:17 {14} Now in this that I declare [unto you] I praise [you] not, that ye come together not for the better, but for the worse.

1Co 11:18

11:18 {15} For first of all, when ye come together in the church, I hear that there be divisions among you; and I partly believe it.

1Co 11:19

11:19 {16} For there must be also heresies among you, that they which are {f} approved may be made manifest among you.

1Co 11:20

11:20 When ye come together therefore into one place, [this] is {g} not to eat the Lord's supper.

1Co 11:21

11:21 For in eating every one taketh {h} before [other] his own supper: and one is hungry, and another is drunken.

1Co 11:22

11:22 {17} What? have ye not houses to eat and to drink in? or despise ye the church of God, and shame them that have not? What shall I say to you? shall I praise you in this? I praise [you] not.

1Co 11:23

11:23 {18} For I have received of the Lord that which also I delivered unto you, That the Lord Jesus the [same] night in which he was betrayed took bread:

1Co 11:24

11:24 And when he had given thanks, he brake [it], and said, Take, eat: this is my body, which is {i} broken for you: this do in remembrance of me.

1Co 11:27

11:27 {19} Wherefore whosoever shall eat this bread, and drink [this] cup of the Lord, {k} unworthily, shall be guilty of the body and blood of the Lord.

1Co 11:28

11:28 {20} But let {l} a man examine himself, and so let him eat of [that] bread, and drink of [that] cup.

1Co 11:29

11:29 For he that eateth and drinketh unworthily, eateth and drinketh damnation to himself, not {m} discerning the Lord's body.

1Co 11:30

11:30 {21} For this cause many [are] weak and sickly among you, and many sleep.

1Co 11:31

11:31 For if we would {n} judge ourselves, we should not be judged.

1Co 11:33

11:33 {22} Wherefore, my brethren, when ye come together to eat, tarry one for another.

1Co 11:34

11:34 {23} And if any man hunger, let him eat at home; that ye come not together unto condemnation. {24} And the rest will I set in order when I come.

1Co 12:1

12:1 Now {1} concerning spiritual [gifts], brethren, I would not have you {a} ignorant.

1Co 12:2

12:2 {2} Ye know that ye were {b} Gentiles, carried away unto these dumb idols, even as ye were led.

1Co 12:3

12:3 {3} Wherefore I give you to understand, that no man speaking by the Spirit of God calleth Jesus {c} accursed: and [that] no man can say that Jesus is the Lord, but by the Holy Ghost.

1Co 12:4

12:4 {4} Now there are diversities of gifts, but the {d} same Spirit.

1Co 12:6

12:6 And there are diversities of {e} operations, but it is the same God which worketh all in all.

1Co 12:7

12:7 But the manifestation of the Spirit is {f} given to every man to {g} profit withal.

1Co 12:8

12:8 {5} For to one is given by the Spirit the word of {h} wisdom; to another the word of knowledge by the same Spirit;

1Co 12:10

12:10 To another the {i} working of miracles; to another {k} prophecy; to another {l} discerning of spirits; to another [divers] kinds of tongues; to another the interpretation of tongues:

1Co 12:11

12:11 But all these worketh that one and the selfsame Spirit, dividing to every man severally {6} as he will.

1Co 12:12

12:12 {7} For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of that one body, being many, are one body: {8} so also [is] {m} Christ.

1Co 12:13

12:13 For by one Spirit are we all baptized into {n} one body, whether [we be] Jews or Gentiles, whether [we be] bond or free; and have been all made to {o} drink into one Spirit.

1Co 12:14

12:14 {9} For the body is not one member, but many.

1Co 12:15

12:15 {10} If the foot shall say, Because I am not the hand, I am not of the body; is it therefore not of the body?

1Co 12:17

12:17 {11} If the whole body [were] an eye, where [were] the hearing? If the whole [were] hearing, where [were] the smelling?

1Co 12:21

12:21 {12} 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.

1Co 12:22

12:22 Nay, much more those members of the body, which seem to be {p} more feeble, are necessary:

1Co 12:23

12:23 And those [members] of the body, which we think to be less honourable, upon these we bestow more abundant {q} honour; and our uncomely [parts] have more abundant comeliness.

1Co 12:25

12:25 That there should be no schism in the body; but [that] the members should have the same {r} care one for another.

1Co 12:26

12:26 {13} And whether one member suffer, all the members suffer with it; or one member be honoured, all the members rejoice with it.

1Co 12:27

12:27 Now ye are the body of Christ, and members in {s} particular.

1Co 12:28

12:28 And God hath set some in the church, first apostles, secondarily prophets, thirdly teachers, after that miracles, then gifts of healings, {t} helps, {u} governments, diversities of tongues.

1Co 12:31

12:31 {14} But covet earnestly the best gifts: and yet shew I unto you a more excellent way.

1Co 13:1

13:1 Though {1} I speak with the tongues of men and of {a} angels, and have not charity, I am become [as] sounding brass, or a {b} tinkling cymbal.

1Co 13:2

13:2 And though I have [the gift of] prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all {c} faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing.

1Co 13:4

13:4 {2} Charity {d} suffereth long, [and] is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up,

1Co 13:5

13:5 Doth {e} not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil;

1Co 13:6

13:6 Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but {f} rejoiceth in the truth;

1Co 13:8

13:8 {3} Charity never faileth: but whether [there be] prophecies, they shall fail; whether [there be] tongues, they shall cease; whether [there be] {g} knowledge, it shall vanish away.

1Co 13:9

13:9 {4} For we know in {h} part, and we prophesy in part.

1Co 13:11

13:11 {5} When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things.

1Co 13:12

13:12 {6} For {i} now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.

1Co 13:13

13:13 {7} And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these [is] charity.

1Co 14:1

14:1 Follow {1} after charity, and desire spiritual [gifts], but rather that ye may {a} prophesy.

1Co 14:2

14:2 {2} For he that speaketh in an [unknown] {b} tongue speaketh not unto men, but unto God: for no man understandeth [him]; howbeit in the {c} spirit he speaketh mysteries.

1Co 14:3

14:3 But he that prophesieth speaketh unto men [to] {d} edification, and exhortation, and comfort.

1Co 14:4

14:4 He that speaketh in an [unknown] tongue edifieth himself; but he that prophesieth edifieth the {e} church.

1Co 14:7

14:7 {3} And even things without life giving sound, whether pipe or harp, except they give a distinction in the sounds, how shall it be known what is piped or harped?

1Co 14:9

14:9 So likewise ye, except ye utter by the tongue words {f} easy to be understood, how shall it be known what is spoken? for ye shall speak into the air.

1Co 14:10

14:10 {4} There are, it may be, so many kinds of voices in the world, and none of them [is] without signification.

1Co 14:11

14:11 Therefore if I know not the meaning of the voice, I shall be unto him that speaketh a barbarian, and he that {g} speaketh [shall be] a barbarian unto me.

1Co 14:12

14:12 {5} Even so ye, forasmuch as ye are zealous of spiritual [gifts], seek that ye may excel to the edifying of the church.

1Co 14:13

14:13 Wherefore let him that speaketh in an [unknown] tongue {h} pray that he may interpret.

1Co 14:14

14:14 {6} For {i} if I pray in an [unknown] tongue, my {k} spirit prayeth, but my understanding is {l} unfruitful.

1Co 14:15

14:15 What is it then? I will pray with the spirit, and I will pray with the {m} understanding also: I will sing with the spirit, and I will sing with the understanding also.

1Co 14:16

14:16 {7} Else when thou shalt bless with the {n} spirit, how shall he that {o} occupieth the room of the unlearned say {p} Amen at thy giving of thanks, seeing he understandeth not what thou sayest?

1Co 14:18

14:18 {8} I thank my God, I speak with tongues more than ye all:

1Co 14:19

14:19 Yet in the church I had rather speak {q} five words with my understanding, that [by my voice] I might teach others also, than ten thousand words in an [unknown] tongue.

1Co 14:20

14:20 {9} Brethren, be not children in understanding: howbeit in malice be ye children, but in understanding be men.

1Co 14:21

14:21 In the {r} law it is written, With [men of] other tongues and other lips will I speak unto this people; and yet for all that will they not hear me, saith the Lord.

1Co 14:22

14:22 {10} Wherefore tongues are for a sign, not to them that believe, but to them that believe not: but prophesying [serveth] not for them that believe not, but for them which believe.

1Co 14:23

14:23 {11} If therefore the whole church be come together into one place, and all speak with tongues, and there come in [those that are] {s} unlearned, or unbelievers, will they not say that ye are mad?

1Co 14:26

14:26 {12} How is it then, brethren? when ye come together, every one of you hath a psalm, hath a doctrine, hath a tongue, hath a revelation, hath an interpretation. Let all things be done unto edifying.

1Co 14:27

14:27 {13} If any man speak in an [unknown] tongue, [let it be] by two, or at the most [by] three, and [that] by course; and let one interpret.

1Co 14:29

14:29 {14} Let the prophets speak two or three, and let the other judge.

1Co 14:32

14:32 And the {t} spirits of the prophets are subject to the prophets.

1Co 14:34

14:34 {15} Let your women keep silence in the churches: for it is not permitted unto them to speak; but [they are commanded] to be under obedience, as also saith the law.

1Co 14:36

14:36 {16} What? came the word of God out from you? or came it unto you only?

1Co 14:37

14:37 If any man think himself to be a prophet, or {u} spiritual, let him acknowledge that the things that I write unto you are the commandments of the Lord.

1Co 14:38

14:38 {17} But if any man be ignorant, let him be ignorant.

1Co 14:39

14:39 {18} Wherefore, brethren, covet to prophesy, and forbid not to speak with tongues.

1Co 15:1

15:1 Moreover, {1} brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye {a} stand;

1Co 15:2

15:2 By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, {b} unless ye have believed in vain.

1Co 15:5

15:5 And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the {c} twelve:

1Co 15:6

15:6 After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at {d} once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep.

1Co 15:8

15:8 {2} And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time.

1Co 15:12

15:12 {3} Now if Christ be preached that he rose from the dead, how say some among you that there is no resurrection of the dead?

1Co 15:13

15:13 {4} But if there be no resurrection of the dead, then is Christ not risen:

1Co 15:14

15:14 {5} And if Christ be not risen, then [is] our preaching vain, and your faith [is] also vain.

1Co 15:16

15:16 {6} For if the dead rise not, then is not Christ raised:

1Co 15:17

15:17 And if Christ be not raised, your faith [is] vain; {7} ye are {e} yet in your sins.

1Co 15:18

15:18 {8} Then they also which are fallen asleep in Christ are perished.

1Co 15:19

15:19 {9} If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men most miserable.

1Co 15:20

15:20 {10} But now is Christ risen from the dead, {11} [and] become the {f} firstfruits of them that slept.

1Co 15:21

15:21 {12} For since by man [came] death, by man [came] also the resurrection of the dead.

1Co 15:22

15:22 For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be {g} made alive.

1Co 15:23

15:23 {13} But every man in his own order: Christ the firstfruits; afterward they that are Christ's at his coming.

1Co 15:24

15:24 {14} Then [cometh] the {h} end, when he shall have delivered up the kingdom to God, even the Father; when he shall have put down {i} all rule and all authority and power.

1Co 15:25

15:25 For he must reign, till he hath put all enemies {k} under his feet.

1Co 15:26

15:26 The {l} last enemy [that] shall be destroyed [is] death.

1Co 15:28

15:28 And when all things shall be subdued unto him, {m} then shall the Son also himself be subject unto him that put all things under him, that {n} God may be all in all.

1Co 15:29

15:29 {15} Else what shall they do which are baptized {o} for the dead, if the dead rise not at all? why are they then baptized for the dead?

1Co 15:30

15:30 {16} And why stand we in jeopardy every hour?

1Co 15:31

15:31 I protest by your {p} rejoicing which I have in Christ Jesus our Lord, I die daily.

1Co 15:32

15:32 {17} If {q} after the manner of men I have fought with beasts at Ephesus, what advantageth it me, if the dead rise not? {18} let us {r} eat and drink; for to morrow we die.

1Co 15:33

15:33 {19} Be not deceived: evil communications corrupt good manners.

1Co 15:35

15:35 {20} But some [man] will say, How are the dead raised up? and with what body do they come?

1Co 15:36

15:36 {21} [Thou] fool, that which thou sowest is not quickened, except it die:

1Co 15:38

15:38 {22} But God giveth it a body as it hath pleased him, and to every seed his own body.

1Co 15:42

15:42 {23} So also [is] the resurrection of the dead. It is {s} sown in corruption; it is raised in incorruption:

1Co 15:43

15:43 It is sown in {t} dishonour; it is raised in glory: it is sown in weakness; it is raised in {u} power:

1Co 15:44

15:44 {24} It is sown a natural body; it is raised a spiritual body. There is a natural body, and there is a spiritual body.

1Co 15:45

15:45 {25} And so it is written, The {x} first man Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam [was made] a {y} quickening spirit.

1Co 15:46

15:46 {26} Howbeit that [was] not first which is spiritual, but that which is natural; and afterward that which is spiritual.

1Co 15:47

15:47 The first man [is] of the earth, {z} earthy: the second man [is] the Lord from {a} heaven.

1Co 15:48

15:48 {27} As [is] the earthy, such [are] they also that are earthy: and as [is] the heavenly, such [are] they also that are heavenly.

1Co 15:49

15:49 And as we have borne the {b} image of the earthy, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly.

1Co 15:50

15:50 {28} Now this I say, brethren, that {c} flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption.

1Co 15:51

15:51 {29} Behold, I shew you a {d} mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed,

1Co 15:52

15:52 In {e} a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.

1Co 15:58

15:58 {30} Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the {f} Lord.

1Co 16:1

16:1 Now concerning {1} the collection for the saints, as I have given order to the churches of Galatia, even so do ye.

1Co 16:2

16:2 Upon the {a} first [day] of the week let every one of you lay by him in store, as [God] hath {b} prospered him, that there be no gatherings when I come.

1Co 16:3

16:3 And when I come, whomsoever ye shall approve by [your] {c} letters, them will I send to bring your liberality unto Jerusalem.

1Co 16:4

16:4 {2} And if it be meet that I go also, they shall go with me.

1Co 16:9

16:9 For a great door and {d} effectual is opened unto me, and [there are] many adversaries.

1Co 16:10

16:10 Now if Timotheus come, see that he may be with you {e} without fear: for he worketh the work of the Lord, as I also [do].

1Co 16:11

16:11 Let no man therefore despise him: but conduct him forth {f} in peace, that he may come unto me: for I look for him with the brethren.

1Co 16:15

16:15 I beseech you, brethren, (ye know the house of {g} Stephanas, that it is the firstfruits of Achaia, and [that] they have {h} addicted themselves to the ministry of the saints,)

1Co 16:16

16:16 That ye {i} submit yourselves unto such, and to every one that helpeth with [us], and laboureth.

1Co 16:18

16:18 For they have refreshed my {k} spirit and yours: therefore {l} acknowledge ye them that are such.

1Co 16:22

16:22 If any man love not the Lord Jesus Christ, let him be Anathema {m} Maranatha.
