First Corinthians 1


1:1 Paul, called [to be] an apostle of Jesus Christ through the
 will of God, and Sosthenes [our] brother,
1:2 To the church of God which is at Corinth, to them that are
 sanctified in Christ Jesus, called [to be] saints, with all
 that in every place call upon the name of Jesus Christ our
 Lord, both theirs and ours.
1:3 Grace [be] to you, and peace from God our Father, and [from]
 the Lord Jesus Christ.
1:4 I thank my God always on your behalf, for the grace of God
 which is given you by Jesus Christ;
1:5 That in every thing ye are enriched by him, in all
 utterance, and [in] all knowledge;
1:6 Even as the testimony of Christ was confirmed in you:
1:7 So that ye come behind in no gift; waiting for the coming of
 our Lord Jesus Christ:
1:8 Who will also confirm you to the end, [that ye may be]
 blameless in the day of our Lord Jesus Christ.
1:9 God [is] faithful, by whom ye were called to the fellowship
 of his Son Jesus Christ our Lord.
1:10 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 same mind, and in the same judgment.
1:11 For it hath been declared to me concerning you, my
 brethren, by them [who are of the house] of Chloe, that there
 are contentions among you.
1:12 Now this I say, that every one of you saith, I am of Paul;
 and I of Apollos; and I of Cephas; and I of Christ.
1:13 Is Christ divided? was Paul crucified for you? or were ye
 baptized in the name of Paul?
1:14 I thank God that I baptized none of you, but Crispus and
 Gaius;
1:15 Lest any should say that I had baptized in my own name.
1:16 And I baptized also the household of Stephanas; besides, I
 know not whether I baptized any other.
1:17 For Christ hath not sent me to baptize, but to preach the
 gospel: not with wisdom of words, lest the cross of Christ
 should be made of no effect.
1:18 For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish,
 foolishness; but to us who are saved, it is the power of God.
1:19 For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise,
 and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent.
1:20 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?
1:21 For when 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.
1:22 For the Jews require a sign, and the Greeks seek wisdom:
1:23 But we preach Christ crucified, to the Jews a
 stumbling-block, and to the Greeks foolishness;
1:24 But to them who are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ
 the power of God, and the wisdom of God.
1:25 Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the
 weakness of God is stronger than men.
1:26 For ye see your calling, brethren, that not many wise men
 after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble [are called]:
1:27 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 which are mighty;
1:28 And base things of the world, and things which are
 despised, hath God chosen, and things which are not, to bring
 to naught things that are:
1:29 That no flesh should glory in his presence.
1:30 But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who from God is made to
 us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and
 redemption:
1:31 That, according as it is written, He that glorieth, let him
 glory in the Lord.
