Unchecked Copy Box1Co 4:1 - Let a man so reckon us as officers of Christ, and stewards of the secrets of God,
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 4:2 - and as to the rest, it is required in the stewards that one may be found faithful,
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 4:3 - and to me it is for a very little thing that by you I may be judged, or by man's day, but not even myself do I judge,
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 4:4 - for of nothing to myself have I been conscious, but not in this have I been declared right -- and he who is discerning me is the Lord:
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 4:5 - so, then, nothing before the time judge ye, till the Lord may come, who will both bring to light the hidden things of the darkness, and will manifest the counsels of the hearts, and then the praise shall come to each from God.
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 4:6 - And these things, brethren, I did transfer to myself and to Apollos because of you, that in us ye may learn not to think above that which hath been written, that ye may not be puffed up one for one against the other,
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 4:7 - for who doth make thee to differ? and what hast thou, that thou didst not receive? and if thou didst also receive, why dost thou glory as not having received?
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 4:8 - Already ye are having been filled, already ye were rich, apart from us ye did reign, and I would also ye did reign, that we also with you may reign together,
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 4:9 - for I think that God did set forth us the apostles last -- as appointed to death, because a spectacle we became to the world, and messengers, and men;
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 4:10 - we are fools because of Christ, and ye wise in Christ; we are ailing, and ye strong; ye glorious, and we dishonoured;
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 4:11 - unto the present hour we both hunger, and thirst, and are naked, and are buffeted, and wander about,
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 4:12 - and labour, working with our own hands; being reviled, we bless; being persecuted, we suffer;
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 4:13 - being spoken evil of, we entreat; as filth of the world we did become -- of all things an offscouring -- till now.
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 4:14 - Not as putting you to shame do I write these things, but as my beloved children I do admonish,
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 4:15 - for if a myriad of child-conductors ye may have in Christ, yet not many fathers; for in Christ Jesus, through the good news, I -- I did beget you;
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 4:16 - I call upon you, therefore, become ye followers of me;
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 4:17 - because of this I sent to you Timotheus, who is my child, beloved and faithful in the Lord, who shall remind you of my ways in Christ, according as everywhere in every assembly I teach.
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 4:18 - And as if I were not coming unto you certain were puffed up;
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 4:19 - but I will come quickly unto you, if the Lord may will, and I will know not the word of those puffed up, but the power;
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 4:20 - for not in word is the reign of God, but in power?
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 4:21 - what do ye wish? with a rod shall I come unto you, or in love, with a spirit also of meekness?
