Unchecked Copy Box1Co 3:1 - And I, brethren, was not able to speak to you as to spiritual, but as to fleshly -- as to babes in Christ;
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 3:2 - with milk I fed you, and not with meat, for ye were not yet able, but not even yet are ye now able,
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 3:3 - for yet ye are fleshly, for where there is among you envying, and strife, and divisions, are ye not fleshly, and in the manner of men do walk?
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 3:4 - for when one may say, 'I, indeed, am of Paul;' and another, 'I -- of Apollos;' are ye not fleshly?
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 3:5 - Who, then, is Paul, and who Apollos, but ministrants through whom ye did believe, and to each as the Lord gave?
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 3:6 - I planted, Apollos watered, but God was giving growth;
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 3:7 - so that neither is he who is planting anything, nor he who is watering, but He who is giving growth -- God;
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 3:8 - and he who is planting and he who is watering are one, and each his own reward shall receive, according to his own labour,
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 3:9 - for of God we are fellow-workmen; God's tillage, God's building ye are.
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 3:10 - According to the grace of God that was given to me, as a wise master-builder, a foundation I have laid, and another doth build on it,
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 3:11 - for other foundation no one is able to lay except that which is laid, which is Jesus the Christ;
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 3:12 - and if any one doth build upon this foundation gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, straw --
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 3:13 - of each the work shall become manifest, for the day shall declare it, because in fire it is revealed, and the work of each, what kind it is, the fire shall prove;
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 3:14 - if of any one the work doth remain that he built on it, a wage he shall receive;
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 3:15 - if of any the work is burned up, he shall suffer loss; and himself shall be saved, but so as through fire.
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 3:16 - have ye not known that ye are a sanctuary of God, and the Spirit of God doth dwell in you?
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 3:17 - if any one the sanctuary of God doth waste, him shall God waste; for the sanctuary of God is holy, the which ye are.
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 3:18 - Let no one deceive himself; if any one doth seem to be wise among you in this age -- let him become a fool, that he may become wise,
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 3:19 - for the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God, for it hath been written, 'Who is taking the wise in their craftiness;'
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 3:20 - and again, 'The Lord doth know the reasonings of the wise, that they are vain.'
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 3:21 - So then, let no one glory in men, for all things are yours,
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 3:22 - whether Paul, or Apollos, or Cephas, or the world, or life, or death, or things present, or things about to be -- all are yours,
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 3:23 - and ye are Christ's, and Christ is God's.
