27 And ye be the body of Christ, and members of member. [Forsooth ye be the body of Christ, and members of members.]

28 But God set some men in the church, first apostles, the second time prophets [And soothly God put some in the church, first apostles, the second prophets], the third teachers, afterward works of power, afterward graces of healings, helpings, governings, kinds of languages, interpretations of words.

29 Whether all [be] apostles? whether all [be] prophets? Whether all teachers? whether all works of power?

30 whether all have grace of healings? whether all speak with languages? whether all expound [whether all interpret, or expound]?

31 But follow ye the better ghostly gifts. And yet I show to you a more excellent way.

Are all prophets? Are all teachers? Do all work miracles? 30 Do all have the gifts of healing? Do all speak with tongues? Do all interpret? 31 Covet the best gifts. And yet, I show you a more excellent way.
