Now concerning spiritual gifts, brethren, I do not want you to be ignorant:

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 12:2

You know that[fn] you were Gentiles, carried away to these dumb idols, however you were led.

Tools specific to 1Co 12:3

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 12:3

Therefore I make known to you that no one speaking by the Spirit of God calls Jesus accursed, and no one can say that Jesus is Lord except by the Holy Spirit.

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 12:4

There are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit.

And there are diversities of activities, but it is the same God who works all in all.

Tools specific to 1Co 12:7

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 12:7

But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to each one for the profit of all:

Tools specific to 1Co 12:8

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 12:8

for to one is given the word of wisdom through the Spirit, to another the word of knowledge through the same Spirit,

Tools specific to 1Co 12:9

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 12:9

to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healings by the same[fn] Spirit,

Tools specific to 1Co 12:10

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 12:10

to another the working of miracles, to another prophecy, to another discerning of spirits, to another different kinds of tongues, to another the interpretation of tongues.

Tools specific to 1Co 12:11

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 12:11

But one and the same Spirit works all these things, distributing to each one individually as He wills.

Tools specific to 1Co 12:12

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 12:12

For as the body is one and has many members, but all the members of that one body, being many, are one body, so also is Christ.

Tools specific to 1Co 12:13

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 12:13

For by one Spirit we were all baptized into one body—whether Jews or Greeks, whether slaves or free—and have all been made to drink into[fn] one Spirit.

Tools specific to 1Co 12:14

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 12:14

For in fact the body is not one member but many.

Tools specific to 1Co 12:15

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 12:15

If the foot should say, “Because I am not a hand, I am not of the body,” is it therefore not of the body?

Tools specific to 1Co 12:16

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 12:16

And if the ear should say, “Because I am not an eye, I am not of the body,” is it therefore not of the body?

Tools specific to 1Co 12:17

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 12:17

If the whole body were an eye, where would be the hearing? If the whole were hearing, where would be the smelling?

Tools specific to 1Co 12:18

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 12:18

But now God has set the members, each one of them, in the body just as He pleased.

Tools specific to 1Co 12:19

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 12:19

And if they were all one member, where would the body be?

Tools specific to 1Co 12:20

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 12:20

But now indeed there are many members, yet one body.

Tools specific to 1Co 12:21

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 12:21

And the eye cannot say to the hand, “I have no need of you”; nor again the head to the feet, “I have no need of you.”

Tools specific to 1Co 12:22

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 12:22

No, much rather, those members of the body which seem to be weaker are necessary.

Tools specific to 1Co 12:23

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 12:23

And those members of the body which we think to be less honorable, on these we bestow greater honor; and our unpresentable parts have greater modesty,

Tools specific to 1Co 12:24

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 12:24

but our presentable parts have no need. But God composed the body, having given greater honor to that part which lacks it,

Tools specific to 1Co 12:25

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 12:25

that there should be no schism in the body, but that the members should have the same care for one another.

Tools specific to 1Co 12:26

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 12:26

And if one member suffers, all the members suffer with it; or if one member is honored, all the members rejoice with it.

Tools specific to 1Co 12:27

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 12:27

Now you are the body of Christ, and members individually.

Tools specific to 1Co 12:28

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 12:28

And God has appointed these in the church: first apostles, second prophets, third teachers, after that miracles, then gifts of healings, helps, administrations, varieties of tongues.

Tools specific to 1Co 12:29

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 12:29

Are all apostles? Are all prophets? Are all teachers? Are all workers of miracles?

Tools specific to 1Co 12:30

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 12:30

Do all have gifts of healings? Do all speak with tongues? Do all interpret?

Tools specific to 1Co 12:31

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 12:31

But earnestly desire the best[fn] gifts. And yet I show you a more excellent way.
