The Use of Spiritual Gifts

12 Now concerning spiritual gifts, brethren, I do not want you to be unaware. You know that when you were pagans, you were led astray to the mute idols, however you were led. Therefore I make known to you that no one speaking [a]by the Spirit of God says, “Jesus is [b]accursed”; and no one can say, “Jesus is Lord,” except [c]by the Holy Spirit.

Now there are varieties of gifts, but the same Spirit. And there are varieties of ministries, and the same Lord. There are varieties of effects, but the same God who works all things in all persons. But to each one is given the manifestation of the Spirit for the common good. For to one is given the word of wisdom through the Spirit, and to another the word of knowledge according to the same Spirit; to another faith [d]by the same Spirit, and to another gifts of [e]healing [f]by the one Spirit, 10 and to another the [g]effecting of [h]miracles, and to another prophecy, and to another the [i]distinguishing of spirits, to another various kinds of tongues, and to another the interpretation of tongues. 11 But one and the same Spirit works all these things, distributing to each one individually just as He wills.

12 For even as the body is one and yet has many members, and all the members of the body, though they are many, are one body, so also is Christ. 13 For [j]by one Spirit we were all baptized into one body, whether Jews or Greeks, whether slaves or free, and we were all made to drink of one Spirit.

14 For the body is not one member, but many. 15 If the foot says, “Because I am not a hand, I am not a part of the body,” it is not for this reason [k]any the less a part of the body. 16 And if the ear says, “Because I am not an eye, I am not a part of the body,” it is not for this reason [l]any the less a part of the body. 17 If the whole body were an eye, where would the hearing be? If the whole were hearing, where would the sense of smell be? 18 But now God has placed the members, each one of them, in the body, just as He desired. 19 If they were all one member, where would the body be? 20 But now there are many members, but one body. 21 And the eye cannot say to the hand, “I have no need of you”; or again the head to the feet, “I have no need of you.” 22 On the contrary, [m]it is much truer that the members of the body which seem to be weaker are necessary; 23 and those members of the body which we [n]deem less honorable, [o]on these we bestow more abundant honor, and our less presentable members become much more presentable, 24 whereas our more presentable members have no need of it. But God has so composed the body, giving more abundant honor to that member which lacked, 25 so that there may be no [p]division in the body, but that the members may have the same care for one another. 26 And if one member suffers, all the members suffer with it; if one member is [q]honored, all the members rejoice with it.

27 Now you are Christ’s body, and individually members of it. 28 And God has [r]appointed in the church, first apostles, second prophets, third teachers, then [s]miracles, then gifts of healings, helps, administrations, various kinds of tongues. 29 All are not apostles, are they? All are not prophets, are they? All are not teachers, are they? All are not workers of [t]miracles, are they? 30 All do not have gifts of healings, do they? All do not speak with tongues, do they? All do not interpret, do they? 31 But earnestly desire the greater gifts.

And I show you a still more excellent way.

1 Corinthians 12 New International Version (NIV)

Concerning Spiritual Gifts

12 Now about the gifts of the Spirit, brothers and sisters, I do not want you to be uninformed. You know that when you were pagans, somehow or other you were influenced and led astray to mute idols. Therefore I want you to know that no one who is speaking by the Spirit of God says, “Jesus be cursed,” and no one can say, “Jesus is Lord,” except by the Holy Spirit.

There are different kinds of gifts, but the same Spirit distributes them. There are different kinds of service, but the same Lord. There are different kinds of working, but in all of them and in everyone it is the same God at work.

Now to each one the manifestation of the Spirit is given for the common good. To one there is given through the Spirit a message of wisdom, to another a message of knowledge by means of the same Spirit, to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healing by that one Spirit, 10 to another miraculous powers, to another prophecy, to another distinguishing between spirits, to another speaking in different kinds of tongues,[a] and to still another the interpretation of tongues.[b] 11 All these are the work of one and the same Spirit, and he distributes them to each one, just as he determines.

Unity and Diversity in the Body

12 Just as a body, though one, has many parts, but all its many parts form one body, so it is with Christ. 13 For we were all baptized by[c] one Spirit so as to form one body—whether Jews or Gentiles, slave or free—and we were all given the one Spirit to drink. 14 Even so the body is not made up of one part but of many.

15 Now if the foot should say, “Because I am not a hand, I do not belong to the body,” it would not for that reason stop being part of the body. 16 And if the ear should say, “Because I am not an eye, I do not belong to the body,” it would not for that reason stop being part of the body. 17 If the whole body were an eye, where would the sense of hearing be? If the whole body were an ear, where would the sense of smell be? 18 But in fact God has placed the parts in the body, every one of them, just as he wanted them to be. 19 If they were all one part, where would the body be? 20 As it is, there are many parts, but one body.

21 The eye cannot say to the hand, “I don’t need you!” And the head cannot say to the feet, “I don’t need you!” 22 On the contrary, those parts of the body that seem to be weaker are indispensable, 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, 24 while our presentable parts need no special treatment. But God has put the body together, giving greater honor to the parts that lacked it, 25 so that there should be no division in the body, but that its parts should have equal concern for each other. 26 If one part suffers, every part suffers with it; if one part is honored, every part rejoices with it.

27 Now you are the body of Christ, and each one of you is a part of it. 28 And God has placed in the church first of all apostles, second prophets, third teachers, then miracles, then gifts of healing, of helping, of guidance, and of different kinds of tongues. 29 Are all apostles? Are all prophets? Are all teachers? Do all work miracles? 30 Do all have gifts of healing? Do all speak in tongues[d]? Do all interpret? 31 Now eagerly desire the greater gifts.

Love Is Indispensable

And yet I will show you the most excellent way.

The Use of Spiritual Gifts

12 Now about the spiritual gifts [the special endowments given by the Holy Spirit], brothers and sisters, I do not want you to be uninformed. You know that when you were pagans, you were led off after speechless idols; however you were led off [whether by impulse or habit]. Therefore I want you to know that no one speaking by the [power and influence of the] Spirit of God can say, “Jesus be cursed,” and no one can say, “Jesus is [my] Lord,” except by [the power and influence of] the Holy Spirit.

Now there are [distinctive] varieties of spiritual gifts [special abilities given by the grace and extraordinary power of the Holy Spirit operating in believers], but it is the same Spirit [who grants them and empowers believers]. And there are [distinctive] varieties of ministries and service, but it is the same Lord [who is served]. And there are [distinctive] ways of working [to accomplish things], but it is the same God who produces all things in all believers [inspiring, energizing, and empowering them]. But to each one is given the manifestation of the Spirit [the spiritual illumination and the enabling of the Holy Spirit] for the common good. To one is given through the [Holy] Spirit [the power to speak] the message of wisdom, and to another [the power to express] the word of knowledge and understanding according to the same Spirit; to another [wonder-working] faith [is given] by the same [Holy] Spirit, and to another the [extraordinary] gifts of healings by the one Spirit; 10 and to another the working of [a]miracles, and to another prophecy [foretelling the future, speaking a new message from God to the people], and to another discernment of spirits [the ability to distinguish sound, godly doctrine from the deceptive doctrine of man-made religions and cults], to another various kinds of [unknown] tongues, and to another interpretation of tongues. 11 All these things [the gifts, the achievements, the abilities, the empowering] are brought about by one and the same [Holy] Spirit, distributing to each one individually just as He chooses.

12 For just as the body is one and yet has many parts, and all the parts, though many, form [only] one body, so [b]it is with Christ. 13 For by one [Holy] Spirit we were all baptized into one body, [spiritually transformed—united together] whether Jews or Greeks (Gentiles), slaves or free, and we were all made to drink of one [Holy] Spirit [since the same Holy Spirit fills each life].

14 For the [human] body does not consist of one part, but of many [limbs and organs]. 15 If the foot says, “Because I am not a hand, I am not a part of the body,” is it not on the contrary still a part of the body? 16 If the ear says, “Because I am not an eye, I am not a part of the body,” is it not on the contrary still a part of the body? 17 If the whole body were an eye, where would the hearing be? If the whole [body] were an ear, where would the sense of smell be? 18 But now [as things really are], God has placed and arranged the parts in the body, each one of them, just as He willed and saw fit [with the best balance of function]. 19 If they all were a single organ, where would [the rest of] the body be? 20 But now [as things really are] there are many parts [different limbs and organs], but a single body. 21 The eye cannot say to the hand, “I have no need of you,” nor again the head to the feet, “I have no need of you.” 22 But quite the contrary, the parts of the body that seem to be weaker are [absolutely] necessary; 23 and as for those parts of the body which we consider less honorable, these we treat with greater honor; and our less presentable parts are treated with greater modesty, 24 while our more presentable parts do not require it. But God has combined the [whole] body, giving greater honor to that part which lacks it, 25 so that there would be no division or discord in the body [that is, lack of adaptation of the parts to each other], but that the parts may have the same concern for one another. 26 And if one member suffers, all the parts share the suffering; if one member is honored, all rejoice with it.

27 Now you [collectively] are Christ’s body, and individually [you are] members of it [each with his own special purpose and function]. 28 So God has appointed and placed in the church [for His own use]: first apostles [chosen by Christ], second prophets [those who foretell the future, those who speak a new message from God to the people], third teachers, then those who work miracles, then those with the gifts of healings, the helpers, the administrators, and speakers in various kinds of [unknown] tongues. 29 Are all apostles? Are all prophets? Are all teachers? Are all workers of miracles? 30 Do all have gifts of healing? Do all speak with tongues? Do all interpret? 31 But earnestly desire and strive for the greater gifts [if acquiring them is going to be your goal].

And yet I will show you a still more excellent way [one of the choicest graces and the highest of them all: unselfish love].

Acerca da diversidade de dons espirituais

12 Acerca dos dons espirituais, não quero, irmãos, que sejais ignorantes. Vós bem sabeis que éreis gentios, levados aos ídolos mudos, conforme éreis guiados. Portanto, vos quero fazer compreender que ninguém que fala pelo Espírito de Deus diz: Jesus é anátema! E ninguém pode dizer que Jesus é o Senhor, senão pelo Espírito Santo.

Ora, há diversidade de dons, mas o Espírito é o mesmo. E há diversidade de ministérios, mas o Senhor é o mesmo. E há diversidade de operações, mas é o mesmo Deus que opera tudo em todos. Mas a manifestação do Espírito é dada a cada um para o que for útil. Porque a um, pelo Espírito, é dada a palavra da sabedoria; e a outro, pelo mesmo Espírito, a palavra da ciência; e a outro, pelo mesmo Espírito, a fé; e a outro, pelo mesmo Espírito, os dons de curar; 10 e a outro, a operação de maravilhas; e a outro, a profecia; e a outro, o dom de discernir os espíritos; e a outro, a variedade de línguas; e a outro, a interpretação das línguas. 11 Mas um só e o mesmo Espírito opera todas essas coisas, repartindo particularmente a cada um como quer.

A unidade dos membros do corpo

12 Porque, assim como o corpo é um e tem muitos membros, e todos os membros, sendo muitos, são um corpo, assim é Cristo também. 13 Pois todos nós fomos batizados em um Espírito, formando um corpo, quer judeus, quer gregos, quer servos, quer livres, e todos temos bebido de um Espírito. 14 Porque também o corpo não é um membro, mas muitos. 15 Se o pé disser: Porque não sou mão, não sou do corpo; não será por isso do corpo? 16 E, se a orelha disser: Porque não sou olho, não sou do corpo; não será por isso do corpo? 17 Se todo o corpo fosse olho, onde estaria o ouvido? Se todo fosse ouvido, onde estaria o olfato? 18 Mas, agora, Deus colocou os membros no corpo, cada um deles como quis. 19 E, se todos fossem um membro, onde estaria o corpo? 20 Agora, pois, há muitos membros, mas um corpo. 21 E o olho não pode dizer à mão: Não tenho necessidade de ti; nem ainda a cabeça, aos pés: Não tenho necessidade de vós. 22 Antes, os membros do corpo que parecem ser os mais fracos são necessários. 23 E os que reputamos serem menos honrosos no corpo, a esses honramos muito mais; e aos que em nós são menos decorosos damos muito mais honra. 24 Porque os que em nós são mais honestos não têm necessidade disso, mas Deus assim formou o corpo, dando muito mais honra ao que tinha falta dela, 25 para que não haja divisão no corpo, mas, antes, tenham os membros igual cuidado uns dos outros. 26 De maneira que, se um membro padece, todos os membros padecem com ele; e, se um membro é honrado, todos os membros se regozijam com ele.

27 Ora, vós sois o corpo de Cristo e seus membros em particular. 28 E a uns pôs Deus na igreja, primeiramente, apóstolos, em segundo lugar, profetas, em terceiro, doutores, depois, milagres, depois, dons de curar, socorros, governos, variedades de línguas. 29 Porventura, são todos apóstolos? São todos profetas? São todos doutores? São todos operadores de milagres? 30 Têm todos o dom de curar? Falam todos diversas línguas? Interpretam todos? 31 Portanto, procurai com zelo os melhores dons; e eu vos mostrarei um caminho ainda mais excelente.

1 Coríntios 12 Nova Versão Internacional (NVI-PT)

Os Dons Espirituais

12 Irmãos, quanto aos dons espirituais[a], não quero que vocês sejam ignorantes. Vocês sabem que, quando eram pagãos, de uma forma ou de outra eram fortemente atraídos e levados para os ídolos mudos. Por isso, eu lhes afirmo que ninguém que fala pelo Espírito de Deus diz: “Jesus seja amaldiçoado”; e ninguém pode dizer: “Jesus é Senhor”, a não ser pelo Espírito Santo.

Há diferentes tipos de dons, mas o Espírito é o mesmo. Há diferentes tipos de ministérios, mas o Senhor é o mesmo. Há diferentes formas de atuação, mas é o mesmo Deus quem efetua tudo em todos.

A cada um, porém, é dada a manifestação do Espírito, visando ao bem comum. Pelo Espírito, a um é dada a palavra de sabedoria; a outro, pelo mesmo Espírito, a palavra de conhecimento; a outro, fé, pelo mesmo Espírito; a outro, dons de curar, pelo único Espírito; 10 a outro, poder para operar milagres; a outro, profecia; a outro, discernimento de espíritos; a outro, variedade de línguas; e ainda a outro, interpretação de línguas. 11 Todas essas coisas, porém, são realizadas pelo mesmo e único Espírito, e ele as distribui individualmente, a cada um, como quer.

Diversidade na Unidade

12 Ora, assim como o corpo é uma unidade, embora tenha muitos membros, e todos os membros, mesmo sendo muitos, formam um só corpo, assim também com respeito a Cristo. 13 Pois em um só corpo todos nós fomos batizados em[b] um único Espírito: quer judeus, quer gregos, quer escravos, quer livres. E a todos nós foi dado beber de um único Espírito.

14 O corpo não é feito de um só membro, mas de muitos. 15 Se o pé disser: “Porque não sou mão, não pertenço ao corpo”, nem por isso deixa de fazer parte do corpo. 16 E se o ouvido disser: “Porque não sou olho, não pertenço ao corpo”, nem por isso deixa de fazer parte do corpo. 17 Se todo o corpo fosse olho, onde estaria a audição? Se todo o corpo fosse ouvido, onde estaria o olfato? 18 De fato, Deus dispôs cada um dos membros no corpo, segundo a sua vontade. 19 Se todos fossem um só membro, onde estaria o corpo? 20 Assim, há muitos membros, mas um só corpo.

21 O olho não pode dizer à mão: “Não preciso de você!” Nem a cabeça pode dizer aos pés: “Não preciso de vocês!” 22 Ao contrário, os membros do corpo que parecem mais fracos são indispensáveis, 23 e os membros que pensamos serem menos honrosos, tratamos com especial honra. E os membros que em nós são indecorosos são tratados com decoro especial, 24 enquanto os que em nós são decorosos não precisam ser tratados de maneira especial. Mas Deus estruturou o corpo dando maior honra aos membros que dela tinham falta, 25 a fim de que não haja divisão no corpo, mas, sim, que todos os membros tenham igual cuidado uns pelos outros. 26 Quando um membro sofre, todos os outros sofrem com ele; quando um membro é honrado, todos os outros se alegram com ele.

27 Ora, vocês são o corpo de Cristo, e cada um de vocês, individualmente, é membro desse corpo. 28 Assim, na igreja, Deus estabeleceu primeiramente apóstolos; em segundo lugar, profetas; em terceiro lugar, mestres; depois os que realizam milagres, os que têm dons de curar, os que têm dom de prestar ajuda, os que têm dons de administração e os que falam diversas línguas. 29 São todos apóstolos? São todos profetas? São todos mestres? Têm todos o dom de realizar milagres? 30 Têm todos o dons de curar? Falam todos em línguas? Todos interpretam? 31 Entretanto, busquem[c] com dedicação os melhores dons.

O Amor

Passo agora a mostrar-lhes um caminho ainda mais excelente.
