5 c One man esteemeth one day above another: another esteemetli every day alike. Let every man be II fully persuaded in his own mind.

6 He that'' regardcth the day, regardeth it unto the Lord; and ho that regardeth not the day, to the Lord lie doth not regard it. He that eateth, eateth to the Lord, for she giveth God thanks; and lie that eateth not, to the Lord he eateth not, and giveth God thanks,

7 For ' none of us liveth to himself, and no man dieth to himself.

S For whether we live, we live unto the Lord; and whether we die, we die unto the Lord: whether we live therefore, or die, we are the Lord's.

9 For I to this end Christ both died, and rose, and revived, that he might be k Lord both of the | dead and living.

10 But why dost thou judge thy brother? or why dost thou set at nought thy brother? for'we shall all stand before the judgment seat of Christ.

11 For it is written, ■ji* I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God.

12 So then "every one of us shall give account of himself to God.

IS Let us not therefore judge one another any more: but judge this rather, that °no man put a stumblingbloek or an occasion to fall in his brother's way.

14 I know, and am persuaded by the Lord Jesus, P that there -in nothing t unclean of itself: but i to him that esteemeth any thing to be t unclean, to him it Is unclean.

15 But if thy brother be grieved with thy meat, now walkest thou not tcharitably. rDestroy not him with thy meat, for whom Christ died.

16 s Let not then your good be evil spoken of:

17 1 For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost.

18 For he that in these things servcth Christ "is acceptable to God, and approved of men.

19 *Let us therefore follow after the things which make for peace,

and things wherewith y one may edify another.

20 zFor meat destroy not the work of God. ^All things indeed are pure; b but it is evil for that man who eateth with offence.

21 It is good neither to eat 0flesh, nor to drink wine, nor any thing whereby thy brother stumbleth, or is offended, or is made weak.

22 Hast thou faith? have it to thyself before God. "Happy is he that condemneth not himself in that thing which he alloweth.

23 And he that I doubteth is damned if he eat, because lie eateth not of faith: for • whatsoever is not of faith is siu.

CHAPTER XV.

1 The strong must bear with the weal:. 2 We

winy vnt olease ourselves, 3 for Christ (lid not to, 7 tntt receive one the other, m (brist did us alt, 8 both Jews 9 and Gentiles. 15 l'aid excuseth his writing, 28 and ]>romiaeth to sec them, 30 and requestcth their prut/era.

WE athen that are strong ought to hear the h infirmities of the weak, and not to please ourselves.

2 cLet every one of us please his neighbour for his good J to edification.

3 e For even Christ, pleased not himself; but, as it is written, 'The reproaches of them that reproached thee fell on me.

4 For s whatsoever things were written aforetime were written for our learning, that we through patience and comfort of the Scriptures might have hope.

5 t Now the God of patience and consolation grant you to he likeminded one toward another II according to Christ Jesus:

0 That ye may 'with one mind and one mouth glorify God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.

7 Wherefore kreceive ye one another,1 as Christ also received us, to the glory of God.

8 Now I say that mJesus Christ was a minister of the circumcision for the truth of God, "to confirm the promises made unto the fathers:

9 And "that the. Gentiles might glorify God for his mercy; as it la written, PFor this cause I will confess to thee among the Gentiles, and sing unto thy name.

THE FIRST EPISTLE OF PAUL THE APOSTLE TO THE

CORINTHIANS.

[ocr errors][ocr errors][ocr errors]

CHAPTER I.

After his salutation and thank-fairing, 10/je exhortcth them to nnitit, and 12 reproreth their dissensions. 18 God destroyeth the wisdom of the wise, 21 bii the foolishness of preaching, and L*f> eailtth not the wise, might*, and noble, but 27, i>8 the foolish, weak, and men of no account.

PAUL, "called to be an apostle of Jesus Christ b through the will of God, and cSostheues our brother,

2 Unto the church of God which is at Corinth, dto them that "are sanctified in Christ Jesus, 'called to be saints, with all that in every place call upon the name of Jesus Christ hour Lord, both theirs and ours:

3 k Grace be unto you, and peace, from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ.

l lI 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, "> in all utterance, and in all knowledge;

6 Even as n the testimony of Christ was confirmed in you:

7 So that ye come behind in no gift; "waiting for the teaming of our Lord Jesus Christ:

8 PWho shall also confirm you unto the end, i that ye may be blameless in the day of our Lord Jesus Christ.

9 'God is faithful, by whom ye were called unto 'the 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 tdivisions among you; but that ye be perfectly joined together in the same 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, "that every one of you saith, I am of Paul;

and I of * Apollos; and I of 1 Cephas; and I of Christ.

13 2Is 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 aCrispus and b Gaius;

15 Lest any should say that I had baptized in mine own name.

10 And I baptized also the household of 0 Stephanas: besides, I know not whether I baptized any other.

17 For Christ sent me not to baptize, but to preach the gospel : dnot with wisdom of I words, lest t he cross of Christ should be made of none effect.

18 For the preaching of the cross is to e them that perish, 'foolishness; but unto us e which are saved, it is the •> power of God.

19 For it is written, > I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent.

20 * Where is the wise? where is the scribe? where is the disputer of this world? hath not God made foolish the wisdom of this world?

21 tn For 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 0 Jews require a sign, and the Greeks seek after wisdom:

23 But we preach Christ crucified, "unto the Jews a stumblingblock, and unto the Greeks p foolishness;

24 But unto them which are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ ithe power of God, and rthe wisdom of God.

25 Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the weakness of God is stronger than men.

20 For ye see your calling,

manner of his preaching.

[ocr errors][merged small][ocr errors][ocr errors][ocr errors][ocr errors][ocr errors][ocr errors][ocr errors]

brethren, how that 8 not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called:

27 But 'God 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

I which are mighty;

28 And base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, yea, and "things which are not, * to 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 z wisdom, and a righteousness, 'and b sanctiflcation, and 0 redemption:

31 That, according as it is written, dHe that glorieth, let him

j glory in the Lord.

CHAPTER II.

Be declareth that his preaching, I though it bring tint excellency of speech, or of A human wisdom; yet consistetk in the 4,5 power of God; and go Jar ejrelht/i 0 the wisdom qr'this world, and 9 human now, as that 14 the natural man cannot understand it.

AND I, brethren, when I came to you, aeame not with excellency of speech or of wisdom, declaring unto you bthe testimony of God.

2 Fori determined not to know any thing among you, c save Jesus Christ, and him crucified.

3 And dI was with you ein weakness, and in fear, and in much trembling.

4 And my speech and my preaching 1 was not with I enticing words of man's wisdom, Vbnt in demonstration of the Spirit and of power:

5 That your faith should not t stand in the wisdom of men, but Mn the power of God.

6 Howbeit we speak wisdom among them "that are perfect: yet not k the wisdom of this world, nor of the princes of this world, 1 that come to nought:

7 But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, m which God ordained before the world unto our glory;

8 Which none of the princes of , this world knew: for "had they

] known it, they would not have i crucified the Lord of glory.

9 But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.

10 But i God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit seareheth all things, yea, the deep things of God.

11 For what~inan knoweth the things of a man, rsave the spirit of man which is in him? "even be the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God.

12 Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but *the Spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God.

13 Which things also we speak, not in the words which man's wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual.

14 x But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: >'for they are foolishness unto him: z neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.

15 aBut he that is spiritual

1 judgeth all things, yet he himself is H judged of no man.

16 °For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he tmay instruct him? c But we have the mind of Christ.

CHAPTER in.

2 Milk is fit for children. 3 strife and division, arguments of a fleshly mind. 7 He that planteth, and he that ivatereth, is nothing. 9 The ministers are God's fellow workmen. 11 Christ the onhl foundation, in Men the temples of God, which 17 must be kept holy. 19 The wisdom of this world is foolishness with God.

AND I, brethren, could not speak unto you as unto spiritual, but as unto "carnal, even as unto c babes in Christ.

2 I have fed you with dmilk, and not with meat: "for hitherto ye were not able to bear it, neitheryet now are ye able.

3 For ye are yet carnal: for

f whereas there is among you I envying, and strife, and I divi- | sions, are ye not carnal, and walk i t as men?
