1 Corinthians 12:23

23 And those members of the body which we think to be less honorable, upon these we bestow more abundant honor; and our uncomely parts have more abundant comeliness.

1 Corinthians 12:23X

23 and those parts of the body, which we think to be less honorable, upon these we bestow more abundant honor; and our uncomely parts have more abundant comeliness;

1 Corinthians 12:23X

23 And those [parts] of the body which we consider rather ignoble are [the very parts] which we invest with additional honor, and our unseemly parts and those unsuitable for exposure are treated with seemliness (modesty and decorum),

1 Corinthians 12:23X

23 The parts of the body that we think are less honorable are the ones we honor the most. The private parts of our body that aren’t presentable are the ones that are given the most dignity.

1 Corinthians 12:23X

23 and upon body parts which we consider less dignified we bestow greater dignity; and the parts that aren’t attractive are the ones we make as attractive as we can,

1 Corinthians 12:23X

23 We take special care to dress up some parts of our bodies. We are modest about our personal parts,

1 Corinthians 12:23X

23 and those [parts] of the body which we esteem to be the more void of honour, these we clothe with more abundant honour; and our uncomely [parts] have more abundant comeliness;

1 Corinthians 12:23X

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 12:23X

23 And the parts that we think are not worth very much are the parts we give the most care to. And we give special care to the parts of the body that we don’t want to show.

1 Corinthians 12:23X

23 and on those parts of the body that we think less honorable we bestow the greater honor, and our unpresentable parts are treated with greater modesty,

1 Corinthians 12:23X

23 and on those parts of the body that we think less honourable we bestow the greater honour, and our unpresentable parts are treated with greater modesty,

1 Corinthians 12:23X

23 And the parts of the body we think are less ·deserving [honorable] are the parts to which we give ·the most [special; greater] honor. We ·give special respect to [or treat with special modesty] the parts ·we want to hide [that are shameful/unpresentable].

1 Corinthians 12:23X

23 And upon those members of the body, which we think most unhonest, put we more honesty on: and our uncomely parts have more comeliness on.

1 Corinthians 12:23X

23 The parts of the body that we think are less honorable are the ones we give special honor. So our unpresentable parts are made more presentable.

1 Corinthians 12:23X

23 and those parts that we think aren't worth very much are the ones which we treat with greater care; while the parts of the body which don't look very nice are treated with special modesty,

1 Corinthians 12:23X

23 And those parts of the body that we think to be less honorable, we clothe these with greater honor, and our unpresentable parts have a better presentation.

1 Corinthians 12:23X

14-26 Now the body is not one member but many. If the foot should say, “Because I am not a hand I don’t belong to the body,” does that alter the fact that the foot is a part of the body? Of if the ear should say, “Because I am not an eye I don’t belong to the body,” does that mean that the ear really is no part of the body? After all, if the body were all one eye, for example, where would be the sense of hearing? Or if it were all one ear, where would be the sense of smell? But God has arranged all the parts in the one body according to his design. For if everything were concentrated in one part, how could there be a body at all? The fact is there are many parts, but only one body. So that the eye cannot say to the hand, “I don’t need you!” nor, again, can the head say to the feet, “I don’t need you!” On the contrary, those parts of the body which have no obvious function are the more essential to health: and to those parts of the body which seem to us to be less deserving of notice we have to allow the highest honour of function. The parts which do not look beautiful have a deeper beauty in the work they do, while the parts which look beautiful may not be at all essential to life! But God has harmonised the whole body by giving importance of function to the parts which lack apparent importance, that the body should work together as a whole with all the members in sympathetic relationship with one another. So it happens that if one member suffers all the other members suffer with it, and if one member is honoured all the members share a common joy.

1 Corinthians 12:23X

23 and those members of the body which we think to be more vile, these we dress with more abundant honour; and those in us who are more indecent have more honesty.

1 Corinthians 12:23X

23 And those members of the body, which we think to be less honourable, upon these we bestow more abundant honour; and our uncomely parts have more abundant comeliness.

1 Corinthians 12:23X

23 and those members of the body, which we think to be less honourable, upon these we bestow more abundant honour; and our uncomely parts have more abundant comeliness.

1 Corinthians 12:23X

23 and the parts of the body which we think to be less honorable, these we clothe with more abundant honor, and our unpresentable parts come to have more abundant presentability,

1 Corinthians 12:23X

23 Yes, we are especially glad to have some parts that seem rather odd! And we carefully protect from the eyes of others those parts that should not be seen,

1 Corinthians 12:23X

19-24 But I also want you to think about how this keeps your significance from getting blown up into self-importance. For no matter how significant you are, it is only because of what you are a part of. An enormous eye or a gigantic hand wouldn’t be a body, but a monster. What we have is one body with many parts, each its proper size and in its proper place. No part is important on its own. Can you imagine Eye telling Hand, “Get lost; I don’t need you”? Or, Head telling Foot, “You’re fired; your job has been phased out”? As a matter of fact, in practice it works the other way—the “lower” the part, the more basic, and therefore necessary. You can live without an eye, for instance, but not without a stomach. When it’s a part of your own body you are concerned with, it makes no difference whether the part is visible or clothed, higher or lower. You give it dignity and honor just as it is, without comparisons. If anything, you have more concern for the lower parts than the higher. If you had to choose, wouldn’t you prefer good digestion to full-bodied hair?

1 Corinthians 12:23X

23 and kai those members houtos of the ho body sōma that hos we consider dokeō less honorable atimos we clothe with peritithēmi greater perissoteros honor timē, and kai · ho our hēmeis unpresentable aschēmōn members are treated with echō greater perissoteros modesty euschēmosynē,

1 Corinthians 12:23X

23 The parts of the body that we think are less honorable are the ones we give special honor. So our unpresentable parts are made more presentable.

1 Corinthians 12:23X

23 and those members of the body which we deem less honorable, on these we bestow more abundant honor, and our less presentable members become much more presentable,

1 Corinthians 12:23X

23 And the parts of the body we think are less deserving are the parts to which we give the most honor. We give special respect to the parts we want to hide.

1 Corinthians 12:23X

23 and those members we consider less honorable we clothe with greater honor, and our unpresentable members are clothed with dignity,

1 Corinthians 12:23X

23 The parts that we think are less important we treat with special honor. The private parts aren’t shown. But they are treated with special care.

1 Corinthians 12:23X

23 and the parts that we think are less honorable we treat with special honor. And the parts that are unpresentable are treated with special modesty,

1 Corinthians 12:23X

23 and the parts that we think are less honourable we treat with special honour. And the parts that are unpresentable are treated with special modesty,

1 Corinthians 12:23X

23 And those members of the body which we think to be less honorable, on these we bestow greater honor; and our unpresentable parts have greater modesty,

1 Corinthians 12:23X

23 We take good care of and cover with clothes the parts of the body that look less important. The parts which do not look beautiful have an important work to do.

1 Corinthians 12:23X

23 And the parts we regard as less honorable are those we clothe with the greatest care. So we carefully protect those parts that should not be seen,

1 Corinthians 12:23X

23 and those members of the body that we think less honorable we clothe with greater honor, and our less respectable members are treated with greater respect;

1 Corinthians 12:23X

23 and those members of the body that we think less honourable we clothe with greater honour, and our less respectable members are treated with greater respect;

1 Corinthians 12:23X

23 and those members of the body that we think less honourable we clothe with greater honour, and our less respectable members are treated with greater respect;

1 Corinthians 12:23X

23 and those members of the body that we think less honorable we clothe with greater honor, and our less respectable members are treated with greater respect;

1 Corinthians 12:23X

23 And those evarim of the body which we presume to be dishonorable, on these we clothe with even more honor, and our parts with lesser kibbud (respect, honor) are treated with greater.

Kehillah in Corinth I 12:23X

23 and those parts of the body which we think less honorable we invest with the greater honor, and our unpresentable parts are treated with greater modesty,

1 Corinthians 12:23X

23 and those parts of the body which we think less honorable we invest with the greater honor, and our unpresentable parts are treated with greater modesty,

1 Corinthians 12:23X

23 the body parts that seem less important we treat as some of the most valuable; and those unfit, untamed, unpresentable members we treat with an even greater modesty.

1 Corinthians 12:23X

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 12:23X

23 And we look after some parts of our body more than others because they need it. The parts of our body that are not so fine in one way are made more fine in other ways. But the parts which are fine already do not need to be made fine. God made the body and has given more care to the parts that need it.

1 Corinthians 12:23X

23 and those that we guess to be the unworthier members of the body, to them we give more honour; and those members that be unseemly, have more seemliness.

1 Corinthians 12:23X

23 and those that we think to be less honourable of the body, around these we put more abundant honour, and our unseemly things have seemliness more abundant,
