The Treasury of Scripture Knowledge

Chapter Overview
 
1Spiritual gifts,
4are diverse,
7yet all to profit withal.
8And to that end are diversely bestowed;
12that by the like proportion, as the members of a natural body tend all to the mutual decency,
22service,
26and succour of the same body;
27so we should do for one another, to make up the mystical body of Christ.
