1 Corinthians 12

1 Corinthians 12:1  
Now concerning spiritual gifts, brethren, I would not have you ignorant.

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

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

1 Corinthians 12:4  
Now there are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit.

1 Corinthians 12:5  
And there are differences of administrations, but the same Lord.

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

1 Corinthians 12:7  
But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man to profit withal.

1 Corinthians 12:8  
For to one is given by the Spirit the word of wisdom; to another the word of knowledge by the same Spirit;

1 Corinthians 12:9  
To another faith by the same Spirit; to another the gifts of healing by the same Spirit;

1 Corinthians 12:10  
To another the working of miracles; to another prophecy; to another discerning of spirits; to another divers kinds of tongues; to another the interpretation of tongues:

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

1 Corinthians 12:12  
For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of that one body, being many, are one body: so also is Christ.

1 Corinthians 12:13  
For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit.

1 Corinthians 12:14  
For the body is not one member, but many.

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

1 Corinthians 12:16  
And if the ear shall say, Because I am not the eye, I am not of the body; is it therefore not of the body?

1 Corinthians 12:17  
If the whole body were an eye, where were the hearing? If the whole were hearing, where were the smelling?

1 Corinthians 12:18  
But now hath God set the members every one of them in the body, as it hath pleased him.

1 Corinthians 12:19  
And if they were all one member, where were the body?

1 Corinthians 12:20  
But now are they many members, yet but one body.

1 Corinthians 12:21  
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.

1 Corinthians 12:22  
Nay, much more those members of the body, which seem to be more feeble, are necessary:

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

1 Corinthians 12:24  
For our comely parts have no need: but God hath tempered the body together, having given more abundant honour to that part which lacked:

1 Corinthians 12:25  
That there should be no schism in the body; but that the members should have the same care one for another.

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

1 Corinthians 12:27  
Now ye are the body of Christ, and members in particular.

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

1 Corinthians 12:29  
Are all apostles? are all prophets? are all teachers? are all workers of miracles?

1 Corinthians 12:30  
Have all the gifts of healing? do all speak with tongues? do all interpret?

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