1 Corinthians 12

Spiritual gifts

1 Corinthians 12:1 Now concerning spiritual things, my brethren, I would not have you ignorant. 1 Corinthians 12:2 You know that when you were heathens, you went to dumb idols, according as you were led. 1 Corinthians 12:3 Wherefore, I give you to understand that no man, speaking by the Spirit of God, saith Anathema to Jesus. And no man can say The Lord Jesus, but by the Holy Ghost.

are divers,

1 Corinthians 12:4 Now there are diversities of graces, but the same Spirit. 1 Corinthians 12:5 And there are diversities of ministries. but the same Lord. 1 Corinthians 12:6 And there are diversities of operations, but the same God, who worketh all in all.

yet all to profit withal.

1 Corinthians 12:7 And the manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man unto profit.

And to that end are diversely bestowed:

1 Corinthians 12:8 To one indeed, by the Spirit, is given the word of wisdom: and to another, the word of knowledge, according to the same Spirit: 1 Corinthians 12:9 To another, faith in the same spirit: to another, the grace of healing in one Spirit: 1 Corinthians 12:10 To another the working of miracles: to another, prophecy: to another, the discerning of spirits: to another, diverse kinds of tongues: to another, interpretation of speeches. 1 Corinthians 12:11 But all these things, one and the same Spirit worketh, dividing to every one according as he will.

that by the like proportion, as the members of a natural body,

1 Corinthians 12:12 For as the body is one and hath many members; and all the members of the body, whereas they are many, yet are one body: So also is Christ. 1 Corinthians 12:13 For in one Spirit were we all baptized into one body, whether Jews or Gentiles, whether bond or free: and in one Spirit we have all been made to drink. 1 Corinthians 12:14 For the body also is not one member, but many. 1 Corinthians 12:15 If the foot should say: Because I am not the hand, I am not of the body: Is it therefore not of the Body?

tend all to the mutual decency,

1 Corinthians 12:16 And if the ear should say: Because I am not the eye, I am not of the body: Is it therefore not of the body? 1 Corinthians 12:17 If the whole body were the eye, where would be the hearing? If the whole were hearing, where would be the smelling? 1 Corinthians 12:18 But now God hath set the members, every one of them, in the body as it hath pleased him. 1 Corinthians 12:19 And if they all were one member, where would be the body? 1 Corinthians 12:20 But now there are many members indeed, yet one body. 1 Corinthians 12:21 And the eye cannot say to the hand: I need not thy help. Nor again the head to the feet: I have no need of you.


1 Corinthians 12:22 Yea, much, more those that seem to be the more feeble members of the body are more necessary 1 Corinthians 12:23 And such as we think to be the less honourable members of the body, about these we put more abundant honour: and those that are our uncomely parts have more abundant comeliness. 1 Corinthians 12:24 But our comely parts have no need: but God hath tempered the body together, giving to that which wanted the more abundant honour. 1 Corinthians 12:25 That there might be no schism in the body: but the members might be mutually careful one for another.

and succour of the same body;

1 Corinthians 12:26 And if one member suffer any thing, all the members suffer with it: or if one member glory, all the members rejoice with it.

so we should do one for another, to make up the mystical body of Christ.

1 Corinthians 12:27 Now you are the body of Christ and members of member. 1 Corinthians 12:28 And God indeed hath set some in the church; first apostles, secondly prophets, thirdly doctors: after that miracles: then the graces of healings, helps, governments, kinds of tongues, interpretations of speeches. 1 Corinthians 12:29 Are all apostles? Are all prophets? Are all doctors? 1 Corinthians 12:30 Are all workers of miracles? Have all the grace of healing? Do all speak with tongues? Do all interpret? 1 Corinthians 12:31 But be zealous for the better gifts. And I shew unto you yet a more excellent way.
