1 Corinthians Chapter 3

The Holy Bible, King James Version

3:1And I, brethren, could not speak unto you as unto spiritual, but as unto carnal, even as unto babes in Christ.

3:2I have fed you with milk, and not with meat: for hitherto ye were not able to bear it, neither yet now are ye able.

3:3For ye are yet carnal: for whereas there is among you envying, and strife, and divisions, are ye not carnal, and walk as men?

3:4For while one saith, I am of Paul; and another, I am of Apollos; are ye not carnal?

3:5Who then is Paul, and who is Apollos, but ministers by whom ye believed, even as the Lord gave to every man?

3:6I have planted, Apollos watered; but God gave the increase.

3:7So then neither is he that planteth any thing, neither he that watereth; but God that giveth the increase.

3:8Now he that planteth and he that watereth are one: and every man shall receive his own reward according to his own labour.

3:9For we are labourers together with God: ye are God's husbandry, ye are God's building.

3:10According to the grace of God which is given unto me, as a wise masterbuilder, I have laid the foundation, and another buildeth thereon. But let every man take heed how he buildeth thereupon.

3:11For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ.

3:12Now if any man build upon this foundation gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, stubble;

3:13Every man's work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man's work of what sort it is.

3:14If any man's work abide which he hath built thereupon, he shall receive a reward.

3:15If any man's work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire.

3:16Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?

3:17If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are.

3:18Let no man deceive himself. If any man among you seemeth to be wise in this world, let him become a fool, that he may be wise.

3:19For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, He taketh the wise in their own craftiness.

3:20And again, The Lord knoweth the thoughts of the wise, that they are vain.

3:21Therefore let no man glory in men. For all things are yours;

3:22Whether Paul, or Apollos, or Cephas, or the world, or life, or death, or things present, or things to come; all are yours;

3:23And ye are Christ's; and Christ is God's.
