1 Corinthians: Chapter 12

(1Co 12:1 KJV)  Now concerning spiritual gifts, brethren, I would not have you ignorant.


(1Co 12:2 KJV)  Ye know that ye were Gentiles, carried away unto these dumb idols, even as ye were led.


(1Co 12:3 KJV)  Wherefore I give you to understand, that no man speaking by the Spirit of God calleth Jesus accursed: and that no man can say that Jesus is the Lord, but by the Holy Ghost.


(1Co 12:4 KJV)  Now there are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit.


(1Co 12:5 KJV)  And there are differences of administrations, but the same Lord.


(1Co 12:6 KJV)  And there are diversities of operations, but it is the same God which worketh all in all.


(1Co 12:7 KJV)  But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man to profit withal.


(1Co 12:8 KJV)  For to one is given by the Spirit the word of wisdom; to another the word of knowledge by the same Spirit;


(1Co 12:9 KJV)  To another faith by the same Spirit; to another the gifts of healing by the same Spirit;


(1Co 12:10 KJV)  To another the working of miracles; to another prophecy; to another discerning of spirits; to another divers kinds of tongues; to another the interpretation of tongues:


(1Co 12:11 KJV)  But all these worketh that one and the selfsame Spirit, dividing to every man severally as he will.


(1Co 12:12 KJV)  For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of that one body, being many, are one body: so also is Christ.


(1Co 12:13 KJV)  For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit.


(1Co 12:14 KJV)  For the body is not one member, but many.


(1Co 12:15 KJV)  If the foot shall say, Because I am not the hand, I am not of the body; is it therefore not of the body?


(1Co 12:16 KJV)  And if the ear shall say, Because I am not the eye, I am not of the body; is it therefore not of the body?


(1Co 12:17 KJV)  If the whole body were an eye, where were the hearing? If the whole were hearing, where were the smelling?


(1Co 12:18 KJV)  But now hath God set the members every one of them in the body, as it hath pleased him.


(1Co 12:19 KJV)  And if they were all one member, where were the body?


(1Co 12:20 KJV)  But now are they many members, yet but one body.


(1Co 12:21 KJV)  And the eye cannot say unto the hand, I have no need of thee: nor again the head to the feet, I have no need of you.


(1Co 12:22 KJV)  Nay, much more those members of the body, which seem to be more feeble, are necessary:


(1Co 12:23 KJV)  And those members of the body, which we think to be less honourable, upon these we bestow more abundant honour; and our uncomely parts have more abundant comeliness.


(1Co 12:24 KJV)  For our comely parts have no need: but God hath tempered the body together, having given more abundant honour to that part which lacked:


(1Co 12:25 KJV)  That there should be no schism in the body; but that the members should have the same care one for another.


(1Co 12:26 KJV)  And whether one member suffer, all the members suffer with it; or one member be honoured, all the members rejoice with it.


(1Co 12:27 KJV)  Now ye are the body of Christ, and members in particular.


(1Co 12:28 KJV)  And God hath set some in the church, first apostles, secondarily prophets, thirdly teachers, after that miracles, then gifts of healings, helps, governments, diversities of tongues.


(1Co 12:29 KJV)  Are all apostles? are all prophets? are all teachers? are all workers of miracles?


(1Co 12:30 KJV)  Have all the gifts of healing? do all speak with tongues? do all interpret?


(1Co 12:31 KJV)  But covet earnestly the best gifts: and yet shew I unto you a more excellent way.
