1 Corinthians 11599 Geneva Bible (GNV)
The First Epistle of Paul to the Corinthians
1 After the salutation, 10 which in effect is an exhortation. 12 He reprehendeth the Corinthians’ sects and divisions, 17 and calleth them from pride to humility: 20 For overthrowing all worldly wisdom. 23, 25 he advanceth only the preaching of the cross.
2 [d]Unto the Church of God, which is at Corinth, to them that are [e]sanctified in [f]Christ Jesus, Saints by [g]calling, with all that [h]call on the Name of our Lord Jesus Christ in every place, both their Lord, and ours:
3 [i]Grace be with you, and peace from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ.
4 [j]I thank my God always on your behalf for the grace of God, which is given you in Jesus Christ.
9 God is [s]faithful, by whom ye are called unto the fellowship of his son Jesus Christ our Lord.
10 [t]Now I beseech you, brethren, by the Name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that [u]ye all speak one thing, and that there be no dissensions among you: but be ye [v]knit together in one mind, and in one judgment.
11 [w]For it hath been declared unto me, my brethren, of you by them that are of the house of Chloe, that there are contentions among you.
12 Now [x]this I say, that every one of you saith, I am Paul’s, and I am Apollos’s, and I am Cephas’s and I am Christ’s.
14 [ab]I thank God, that I baptized none of you, but Crispus, and Gaius,
15 Lest any should say, that I had baptized into mine own name.
16 I baptized also the household of Stephanas: furthermore know I not, whether I baptized any other.
19 [ai]For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will cast away the understanding of the prudent.
22 [aq]Seeing also that the Jews require a sign, and the Grecians seek after wisdom.
23 But we preach Christ crucified: unto the Jews, even a stumbling block, and unto the Grecians, foolishness:
24 But unto them which are called, both of the Jews and Grecians, we preach Christ, the power of God, and the wisdom of God.
25 For the foolishness of God is wiser than men, and the weakness of God is stronger than men.
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 mighty things,
29 That no [aw]flesh should rejoice in his presence.
31 That, according as it is written, [az]He that rejoiceth, let him rejoice in the Lord.
