Tools specific to 1Co 1:1

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 1:1

Paul, called as an apostle of Jesus Christ [fn]by the will of God, and Sosthenes our brother,

Tools specific to 1Co 1:2

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 1:2

To the church of God which is at Corinth, to those who have been sanctified in Christ Jesus, [fn]saints by calling, with all who in every place call on the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, their Lord and ours:

Tools specific to 1Co 1:3

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 1:3

Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.

Tools specific to 1Co 1:4

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 1:4

I thank [fn]my God always concerning you for the grace of God which was given you in Christ Jesus,

Tools specific to 1Co 1:5

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 1:5

that in everything you were enriched in Him, in all speech and all knowledge,

Tools specific to 1Co 1:6

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 1:6

even as the testimony concerning Christ was confirmed [fn]in you,

Tools specific to 1Co 1:7

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 1:7

so that you are not lacking in any gift, awaiting eagerly the revelation of our Lord Jesus Christ,

Tools specific to 1Co 1:8

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 1:8

who will also confirm you to the end, blameless in the day of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Tools specific to 1Co 1:9

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 1:9

God is faithful, through whom you were called into fellowship with His Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.

Tools specific to 1Co 1:10

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 1:10

Now I exhort you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that you all [fn]agree and that there be no [fn]divisions among you, but that you be [fn]made complete in the same mind and in the same judgment.

Tools specific to 1Co 1:11

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 1:11

For I have been informed concerning you, my brethren, by Chloe’s people, that there are quarrels among you.

Tools specific to 1Co 1:12

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 1:12

Now I mean this, that each one of you is saying, “I am of Paul,” and “I of Apollos,” and “I of Cephas,” and “I of Christ.”

Tools specific to 1Co 1:13

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 1:13

[fn]Has Christ been divided? Paul was not crucified for you, was he? Or were you baptized [fn]in the name of Paul?

Tools specific to 1Co 1:14

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 1:14

[fn]I thank God that I baptized none of you except Crispus and Gaius,

Tools specific to 1Co 1:15

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 1:15

so that no one would say you were baptized [fn]in my name.

Tools specific to 1Co 1:16

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 1:16

Now I did baptize also the household of Stephanas; beyond that, I do not know whether I baptized any other.

Tools specific to 1Co 1:17

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 1:17

For Christ did not send me to baptize, but to preach the gospel, not in [fn]cleverness of speech, so that the cross of Christ would not be made void.

Tools specific to 1Co 1:18

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 1:18

For the word of the cross is foolishness to those who [fn]are perishing, but to us who [fn]are being saved it is the power of God.

Tools specific to 1Co 1:19

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 1:19

For it is written,
“I WILL DESTROY THE WISDOM OF THE WISE,
AND THE CLEVERNESS OF THE CLEVER I WILL SET ASIDE.”

Tools specific to 1Co 1:20

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 1:20

Where is the wise man? Where is the scribe? Where is the debater of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of the world?

Tools specific to 1Co 1:21

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 1:21

For since in the wisdom of God the world through its wisdom did not come to know God, God was well-pleased through the foolishness of the [fn]message preached to save those who believe.

Tools specific to 1Co 1:22

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 1:22

For indeed Jews ask for [fn]signs and Greeks search for wisdom;

Tools specific to 1Co 1:23

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 1:23

but we preach [fn]Christ crucified, to Jews a stumbling block and to Gentiles foolishness,

Tools specific to 1Co 1:24

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 1:24

but to those who are the called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God.

Tools specific to 1Co 1:25

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 1:25

Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men, and the weakness of God is stronger than men.

Tools specific to 1Co 1:26

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 1:26

For [fn]consider your calling, brethren, that there were not many wise according to [fn]the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble;

Tools specific to 1Co 1:27

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 1:27

but God has chosen the foolish things of the world to shame the wise, and God has chosen the weak things of the world to shame the things which are strong,

Tools specific to 1Co 1:28

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 1:28

and the base things of the world and the despised God has chosen, the things that are not, so that He may nullify the things that are,

Tools specific to 1Co 1:29

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 1:29

so that no [fn]man may boast before God.

Tools specific to 1Co 1:30

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 1:30

But [fn]by His doing you are in Christ Jesus, who became to us wisdom from God, [fn]and righteousness and sanctification, and redemption,

Tools specific to 1Co 1:31

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 1:31

so that, just as it is written, “LET HIM WHO BOASTS, BOAST IN THE LORD.”
