Tools specific to 1Co 1:2

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 1:2

To the church of God which is at Corinth, to those who are sanctified in Christ Jesus, called to be saints, with all who in every place call on the name of Jesus Christ our Lord, both theirs and ours:

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 1:3

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

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 1:4

I thank my God always concerning you for the grace of God which was given to you by Christ Jesus,

Tools specific to 1Co 1:5

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 1:5

that you were enriched in everything by Him in all utterance and all knowledge,

Tools specific to 1Co 1:6

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 1:6

even as the testimony of Christ was confirmed in you,

Tools specific to 1Co 1:7

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 1:7

so that you come short in no gift, eagerly waiting for 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, that you may be blameless in the day of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Tools specific to 1Co 1:9

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 1:9

God is faithful, by whom you were called into the fellowship of His Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.

Tools specific to 1Co 1:10

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 1:10

Now I plead with you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that you all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment.

Tools specific to 1Co 1:11

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 1:11

For it has been declared to me concerning you, my brethren, by those of Chloe’s household, that there are contentions among you.

Tools specific to 1Co 1:12

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 1:12

Now I say this, that each of you says, “I am of Paul,” or “I am of Apollos,” or “I am of Cephas,” or “I am of Christ.”

Tools specific to 1Co 1:13

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 1:13

Is Christ divided? Was Paul crucified for you? Or were you baptized in the name of Paul?

Tools specific to 1Co 1:14

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 1:14

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

lest anyone should say that I had baptized in my own name.

Tools specific to 1Co 1:16

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 1:16

Yes, I also baptized the household of Stephanas. Besides, 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 with wisdom of words, lest the cross of Christ should be made of no effect.

Tools specific to 1Co 1:18

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 1:18

For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who 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 bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent.”
[fn]

Tools specific to 1Co 1:20

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 1:20

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

Tools specific to 1Co 1:21

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 1:21

For since, in the wisdom of God, the world through wisdom did not know God, it pleased God through the foolishness of the message preached to save those who believe.

Tools specific to 1Co 1:22

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 1:22

For Jews request a sign, and Greeks seek after wisdom;

Tools specific to 1Co 1:23

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 1:23

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

Tools specific to 1Co 1:24

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 1:24

but to those who are 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 you see your calling, brethren, that not many wise according to the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called.

Tools specific to 1Co 1:27

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 1:27

But God has chosen the foolish things of the world to put to shame the wise, and God has chosen the weak things of the world to put to shame the things which are mighty;

Tools specific to 1Co 1:28

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 1:28

and the base things of the world and the things which are despised God has chosen, and the things which are not, to bring to nothing the things that are,

Tools specific to 1Co 1:29

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 1:29

that no flesh should glory in His presence.

Tools specific to 1Co 1:30

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 1:30

But of Him you are in Christ Jesus, who became for us wisdom from God—and righteousness and sanctification and redemption—

Tools specific to 1Co 1:31

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 1:31

that, as it is written, “He who glories, let him glory in the LORD.”[fn]
