1 Corinthians 1

1 Paul, called to be an apostle of Jesus Christ through the will of God, and aSosthenes our brother, 2 Unto the church of God which is at Corinth, to them that eare sanctified in Christ Jesus, dcalled to be saints, with all that in every place call upon the name of Jesus Christ cour Lord, bboth theirs and ours: 3 Grace be unto you, and peace, from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ.

4 I thank my God always on your behalf, for the grace of God which is given you by Jesus Christ; 5 That in every thing ye are enriched by him, fin all utterance, and in all knowledge; 6 Even as gthe testimony of Christ was confirmed in you: 7 So that ye come behind in no gift; waiting for the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ: 8 iWho shall also confirm you unto the end, hthat ye may be blameless in the day of our Lord Jesus Christ. 9 kGod is faithful, by whom ye were called unto jthe fellowship of his Son Jesus Christ our Lord.

10 Now I beseech you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you; but that ye be perfectly joined together in the lsame mind and in the same judgment. 11 For it hath been declared unto me of you, my brethren, by them which are of the house of Chloe, that there are contentions among you. 12 Now this I say, mthat every one of you saith, I am of Paul; and I of nApollos; and I of oCephas; and I of Christ. 13 pIs Christ divided? was Paul crucified for you? or were ye baptized in the name of Paul? 14 I thank God that I baptized none of you, but qCrispus rand Gaius; 15 Lest any should say that I had baptized in mine own name. 16 And I baptized also the household of sStephanas: besides, I know not whether I baptized any other. 17 tFor Christ sent me not to baptize, but to preach the gospel: not with wisdom of words, lest the cross of Christ should be made of none effect.

18 For the preaching of the cross is to wthem that perish vfoolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the upower of God. 19 For it is written, xI will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent. 20 yWhere is the wise? where is the scribe? where is the disputer of this world? hath znot God made foolish the wisdom of this world? 21 aFor after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe. 22 For the bJews require a sign, and the Greeks seek after wisdom: 23 But we preach Christ crucified, cunto the Jews a stumblingblock, and unto the Greeks foolishness; 24 But unto them which are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ dthe power of God, and ethe wisdom of God. 25 fBecause the foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the weakness of God is stronger than men.

26 For ye see your calling, brethren, how that gnot many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called: 27 But hGod hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty; 28 And base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, yea, and ithings which are not, jto bring to nought things that are: 29 That no flesh should glory in his presence. 30 But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption: 31 That, according as it is written, kHe that glorieth, let him glory in the Lord.
