For we are (A)God's fellow workers. You are God's field, (B)God's building.

10 (C)According to the grace of God given to me, like a skilled[a] master builder I laid a (D)foundation, and (E)someone else is building upon it. Let each one take care how he builds upon it. 11 For no one can lay a (F)foundation other (G)than that which is laid, (H)which is Jesus Christ. 12 Now if anyone builds on the foundation with gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, straw— 13 (I)each one's work will become manifest, for the Day will disclose it, because it will be revealed (J)by fire, and (K)the fire will test what sort of work each one has done. 14 If the work that anyone has built on the foundation survives, (L)he will receive a reward. 15 If anyone's work is burned up, he will suffer loss, though he himself will be saved, (M)but only as through fire.

16 (N)Do you not know that you[b] are God's temple and that God's Spirit dwells in you? 17 If anyone destroys God's temple, God will destroy him. For (O)God's temple is holy, and you are that temple.
