1 Corinthians 3

1 Corinthians 3:1  
And the teaching I gave you, my brothers, was such as I was able to give, not to those who have the Spirit, but to those who are still in the flesh, even to children in Christ.

1 Corinthians 3:2  
I gave you milk and not meat, because you were, then, unable to take it, and even now you are not able;

1 Corinthians 3:3  
Because you are still in the flesh: for when there is envy and division among you, are you not still walking after the way of the flesh, even as natural men?

1 Corinthians 3:4  
For when one says, I am of Paul; and another says, I am of Apollos; are you not talking like natural men?

1 Corinthians 3:5  
What then is Apollos? and what is Paul? They are but servants who gave you the good news as God gave it to them.

1 Corinthians 3:6  
I did the planting, Apollos did the watering, but God gave the increase.

1 Corinthians 3:7  
So then the planter is nothing, and the waterer is nothing; but God who gives the increase.

1 Corinthians 3:8  
Now the planter and the waterer are working for the same end: but they will have their separate rewards in the measure of their work.

1 Corinthians 3:9  
For we are workers with God: you are God's planting, God's building.

1 Corinthians 3:10  
In the measure of the grace given to me, I, as a wise master-builder, have put the base in position, and another goes on building on it. But let every man take care what he puts on it.

1 Corinthians 3:11  
For there is no other base for the building but that which has been put down, which is Jesus Christ.

1 Corinthians 3:12  
But on the base a man may put gold, silver, stones of great price, wood, dry grass, cut stems;

1 Corinthians 3:13  
Every man's work will be made clear in that day, because it will be tested by fire; and the fire itself will make clear the quality of every man's work.

1 Corinthians 3:14  
If any man's work comes through the test, he will have a reward.

1 Corinthians 3:15  
If the fire puts an end to any man's work, it will be his loss: but he will get salvation himself, though as by fire.

1 Corinthians 3:16  
Do you not see that you are God's holy house, and that the Spirit of God has his place in you?

1 Corinthians 3:17  
If anyone makes the house of God unclean, God will put an end to him; for the house of God is holy, and you are his house.

1 Corinthians 3:18  
Let no man have a false idea. If any man seems to himself to be wise among you, let him become foolish, so that he may be wise.

1 Corinthians 3:19  
For the wisdom of this world is foolish before God. As it is said in the holy Writings, He who takes the wise in their secret designs:

1 Corinthians 3:20  
And again, The Lord has knowledge of the reasonings of the wise, that they are nothing.

1 Corinthians 3:21  
So let no one take pride in men. For all things are yours;

1 Corinthians 3:22  
Paul, or Apollos, or Cephas, or the world, or life, or death, or things present, or things to come; all are yours;

1 Corinthians 3:23  
And you are Christ's; and Christ is God's.
