10 Now (A)I urge you, (B)brothers and sisters, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that you all [a]agree and that there be no [b](C)divisions among you, but that you be [c]made complete in (D)the same mind and in the same judgment. 11 For I have been informed concerning you, my brothers and sisters, by Chloe’s people, that there are quarrels among you. 12 Now I mean this, that (E)each one of you is saying, “I am [d]with Paul,” [e]or “I am [f]with (F)Apollos,” [g]or “I am [h]with [i](G)Cephas,” [j]or “I am [k]with Christ.” 13 [l]Has Christ been divided? Paul was not crucified for you, was he? Or were you (H)baptized [m]in the name of Paul? 14 I am thankful that I (I)baptized none of you except (J)Crispus and (K)Gaius, 15 so that no one would say you were baptized [n]in my name! 16 But I did baptize the (L)household of Stephanas also; beyond that, I do not know if I baptized anyone else. 17 (M)For Christ did not send me to baptize, but to preach the gospel, (N)not with [o]cleverness of speech, so that the cross of Christ would not be made of no effect.
