1 Corinthians 12
1 Corinthians 12:1
Now concerning spiritual things, brothers, I don’t want you to be ignorant.
1 Corinthians 12:2
You know that when you were heathen, you were led away to those mute idols, however you might be led.
1 Corinthians 12:3
Therefore I make known to you that no man speaking by Gods Spirit says, Yeshua is accursed. No one can say, Yeshua is Lord, but by the Holy Spirit.
1 Corinthians 12:4
Now there are various kinds of gifts, but the same Spirit.
1 Corinthians 12:5
There are various kinds of service, and the same Lord.
1 Corinthians 12:6
There are various kinds of workings, but the same God, who works all things in all.
1 Corinthians 12:7
But to each one is given the manifestation of the Spirit for the profit of all.
1 Corinthians 12:8
For to one is given through the Spirit the word of wisdom, and to another the word of knowledge, according to the same Spirit;
1 Corinthians 12:9
to another faith, by the same Spirit; and to another gifts of healings, by the same Spirit;
1 Corinthians 12:10
and to another workings of miracles; and to another prophecy; and to another discerning of spirits; to another different kinds of languages; and to another the interpretation of languages.
1 Corinthians 12:11
But the one and the same Spirit works all of these, distributing to each one separately as he desires.
1 Corinthians 12:12
For as the body is one, and has many members, and all the members of the body, being many, are one body; so also is Messiah.
1 Corinthians 12:13
For in one Spirit we were all immersed into one body, whether Jews or Greeks, whether bond or free; and were all given to drink into one Spirit.
1 Corinthians 12:14
For the body is not one member, but many.
1 Corinthians 12:15
If the foot would say, Because I’m not the hand, I’m not part of the body, it is not therefore not part of the body.
1 Corinthians 12:16
If the ear would say, Because I’m not the eye, I’m not part of the body, its not therefore not part of the body.
1 Corinthians 12:17
If the whole body were an eye, where would the hearing be? If the whole were hearing, where would the smelling be?
1 Corinthians 12:18
But now God has set the members, each one of them, in the body, just as he desired.
1 Corinthians 12:19
If they were all one member, where would the body be?
1 Corinthians 12:20
But now they are many members, but one body.
1 Corinthians 12:21
The eye can’t tell the hand, I have no need for you, or again the head to the feet, I have no need for you.
1 Corinthians 12:22
No, much rather, those members of the body which seem to be weaker are necessary.
1 Corinthians 12:23
Those parts of the body which we think to be less honorable, on those we bestow more abundant honor; and our unpresentable parts have more abundant propriety;
1 Corinthians 12:24
whereas our presentable parts have no such need. But God composed the body together, giving more abundant honor to the inferior part,
1 Corinthians 12:25
that there should be no division in the body, but that the members should have the same care for one another.
1 Corinthians 12:26
When one member suffers, all the members suffer with it. Or when one member is honored, all the members rejoice with it.
1 Corinthians 12:27
Now you are the body of Messiah, and members individually.
1 Corinthians 12:28
God has set some in the assembly: first emissaries, second prophets, third teachers, then miracle workers, then gifts of healings, helps, governments, and various kinds of languages.
1 Corinthians 12:29
Are all emissaries? Are all prophets? Are all teachers? Are all miracle workers?
1 Corinthians 12:30
Do all have gifts of healings? Do all speak with various languages? Do all interpret?
1 Corinthians 12:31
But earnestly desire the best gifts. Moreover, I show a most excellent way to you.
