1:1-31 - Study Chapter  - Click for Chapter Audio

1 Paul, called R1 as an apostle of Jesus Christ by F1 the R2 will of God, and Sosthenes R3 our brother, R4 2 To the R5 church of God which is at Corinth, R6 to those who have been sanctified in Christ Jesus, saints F2 by R7 calling, with all who in every place call R8 on the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, their Lord and ours: 3 Grace R9 to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. 4 I R10 thank my F3 God always concerning you for the grace of God which was given you in Christ Jesus, 5 that in everything you were enriched R11 in Him, in all speech R12 and all R12 knowledge, 6 even as the R13 testimony concerning Christ was confirmed in F4 you, 7 so that you are not lacking in any gift, awaiting R14 eagerly the revelation of our Lord Jesus Christ, 8 who R15 will also confirm you to the end, blameless in the R16 day of our Lord Jesus Christ. 9 God R17 is faithful, through whom you were called R18 into fellowship R19 with His Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.

10 Now I R20 exhort you, brethren, R21 by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that you all agree F5 and that there be no divisions R22 F6 among you, but that you be made F7 complete in the R23 same mind and in the same judgment. 11 For I have been informed concerning you, my brethren, by Chloe's people, that there are quarrels among you. 12 Now I mean this, that each R24 one of you is saying, "I am of Paul," and "I of Apollos," R25 and "I of Cephas," R26 and "I of Christ." 13 Has F8 Christ been divided? Paul was not crucified for you, was he? Or were you baptized R27 in F9 the name of Paul?

14 I F10 thank God that I baptized R28 none of you except Crispus R28 and Gaius, R29 15 so that no one would say you were baptized in F11 my name. 16 Now I did baptize also the household R30 of Stephanas; beyond that, I do not know whether I baptized any other.

17 For R31 Christ did not send me to baptize, but to preach the gospel, not R32 in cleverness F12 of speech, so that the cross of Christ would not be made void. 18 For the word of the cross is foolishness R33 to those R34 who are F13 perishing, but to us who are F14 being saved it is the R35 power of God. 19 For it is written, "I R36 WILL DESTROY THE WISDOM OF THE WISE, AND THE CLEVERNESS OF THE CLEVER I WILL SET ASIDE." 20 Where R37 is the wise man? Where is the scribe? Where is the debater of this R38 age? Has not God made R39 foolish the wisdom of the R40 world? 21 For since in the wisdom of God the R41 world through its wisdom did not come to know God, God R42 was well-pleased through the foolishness R43 of the message F15 preached to save R44 those who believe. 22 For indeed Jews R45 ask for signs F16 and Greeks search for wisdom; 23 but we preach Christ R46 F17 crucified, to R47 Jews a stumbling block and to Gentiles foolishness, R48 24 but to those who are the R49 called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the R50 power of God and the R51 wisdom of God. 25 Because the foolishness R52 of God is wiser than men, and the R53 weakness of God is stronger than men. 26 For consider F18 your calling, R54 brethren, that there were not R55 many wise according to the F19 flesh, not many mighty, not many noble; 27 but God R56 has chosen the foolish things of the R57 world to shame the wise, and God has chosen the weak things of the R57 world to shame the things which are strong, 28 and the base things of the R58 world and the despised God has chosen, the R59 things that are not, so that He may nullify R60 the things that are, 29 so that no R61 man F20 may boast before God. 30 But by F21 His doing you are in Christ R62 Jesus, who became to us wisdom R63 from God, and F22 righteousness R64 and sanctification, R65 and redemption, R66 31 so that, just as it is written, "LET HIM WHO BOASTS, BOAST IN THE LORD."

2:1-16 - Study Chapter  - Click for Chapter Audio

1 And when I came to you, brethren, I did R68 not come with superiority of speech or of wisdom, proclaiming to you the R69 testimony F23 of God. 2 For I determined to know nothing among you except Jesus R70 Christ, and Him crucified. 3 I was with you in weakness R71 and in fear R72 and in much trembling, 4 and my message F24 and my preaching were not R73 in persuasive words of wisdom, but in demonstration of the R74 Spirit and of power, 5 so that your faith would not rest F25 on the wisdom of men, but on the R75 power of God.

6 Yet we do speak wisdom among those who are mature; R76 a wisdom, however, not of this R77 age nor of the rulers of this R77 age, who are passing R78 away; 7 but we speak God's wisdom in a mystery, R79 the hidden wisdom which God predestined R80 before the ages R81 to our glory; 8 the wisdom which R82 none of the rulers of this R83 age has understood; for if they had understood it they would not have crucified the R84 Lord of glory; 9 but just as it is written, "THINGS WHICH EYE HAS NOT SEEN AND EAR HAS NOT HEARD, AND which HAVE NOT ENTERED THE HEART OF MAN, ALL THAT GOD HAS PREPARED FOR THOSE WHO LOVE HIM." 10 For R86 F26 to us God revealed them through R87 the Spirit; for the Spirit searches all things, even the depths R88 of God. 11 For who among men knows the thoughts of a man except the spirit R89 of the man which is in him? Even so the thoughts of God no one knows except the Spirit of God. 12 Now we have R90 received, not the spirit of the R91 world, but the Spirit who is from God, so that we may know the things freely given to us by God, 13 which things we also speak, not R92 in words taught by human wisdom, but in those taught by the Spirit, combining F27 spiritual thoughts with spiritual words. 14 But a F28 natural R93 man does R94 not accept the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness R95 to him; and he cannot understand them, because they are spiritually appraised. F29 15 But he who is spiritual R96 appraises all things, yet he himself is appraised by no one. 16 For WHO HAS KNOWN THE MIND OF THE LORD, THAT HE WILL INSTRUCT HIM? But we R98 have the mind of Christ.

3:1-23 - Study Chapter  - Click for Chapter Audio

1 And I, brethren, could not speak to you as to spiritual R99 men, but as to men R100 of flesh, as to infants R101 in Christ. 2 I gave you milk R102 to drink, not solid food; for you were R103 not yet able to receive it. Indeed, even now you are not yet able, 3 for you are still fleshly. For since there is jealousy R104 and strife among you, are you not fleshly, and are you not walking like R105 F30 mere men? 4 For when one R106 says, "I am of Paul," and another, "I am of Apollos," are you not mere men? R107

5 What then is Apollos? And what is Paul? Servants R108 through whom you believed, even as R109 the Lord gave opportunity to each one. 6 I R110 planted, Apollos R111 watered, but God R112 was causing the growth. 7 So then neither the one who plants nor the one who waters is anything, but God who causes the growth. 8 Now he who plants and he who waters are one; but each will receive R113 his own reward F31 according to his own labor. 9 For we are God's fellow R114 workers; you are God's field, R115 F32 God's building. R116 10 According to the R117 grace of God which was given to me, like a wise master builder I R118 laid a foundation, and another R119 is building on it. But each man must be careful how he builds on it.

11 For no man can lay a foundation R120 other than the one which is laid, which is Jesus Christ. 12 Now if any man builds on the foundation with gold, silver, precious F33 stones, wood, hay, straw, 13 each R121 man's work will become evident; for the R122 day will show it because it is to be revealed with fire, and the fire itself will test the F34 quality of each man's work. 14 If any man's work which he has built on it remains, he will receive R123 a reward. 15 If any man's work is burned up, he will suffer loss; but he himself will be saved, yet so R124 as through fire.

16 Do R125 you not know that you R126 are a temple F35 of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you? 17 If any man destroys the temple F36 of God, God will destroy him, for the temple F36 of God is holy, and that F37 is what you are.

18 Let R127 no man deceive himself. If R128 any man among you thinks that he is wise in this R129 age, he must become foolish, so that he may become wise. 19 For the R130 wisdom of this world is foolishness before God. For it is written, "He is THE ONE WHO CATCHES THE WISE IN THEIR CRAFTINESS"; 20 and again, "THE LORD KNOWS THE REASONINGS of the wise, THAT THEY ARE USELESS."

21 So then let R133 no one boast in men. For all R134 things belong to you, 22 whether R135 Paul or Apollos or Cephas or the world or life R136 or death or things present or things to come; all things belong to you, 23 and you R137 belong to Christ; and Christ R138 belongs to God.

4:1-21 - Study Chapter  - Click for Chapter Audio

1 Let a man regard us in this manner, as servants R139 of Christ and stewards R140 of the R141 mysteries of God. 2 In this case, moreover, it is required of F38 stewards that one be found trustworthy. 3 But to me it is a very small thing that I may be examined by you, or by any human court; F39 in fact, I do not even examine myself. 4 For I am R142 conscious of nothing against myself, yet I am not by this acquitted; R143 but the one who examines me is the Lord. 5 Therefore do R144 not go on passing F40 judgment before the F41 time, but wait until R145 the Lord comes who will both bring R146 to light the things hidden in the darkness and disclose the motives of men's hearts; and then each man's praise R147 will come to him from God. 6 Now these things, brethren, I have figuratively applied to myself and Apollos for your sakes, so that in us you may learn not to exceed what R148 is written, so that no one of you will become R149 arrogant F42 in R150 behalf of one against the other.

7 For who regards you as superior? What R151 do you have that you did not receive? And if you did receive it, why do you boast as if you had not received it? 8 You are already R152 filled, you have already become rich, you have become kings without us; and indeed, I wish that you had become kings so that we also might reign with you. 9 For, I think, God has exhibited us apostles last of all, as men condemned R153 to death; because we have R154 become a spectacle to the world, both F43 to angels and to men. 10 We are fools R155 for Christ's sake, but you R156 are prudent in Christ; we R157 are weak, but you are strong; you are distinguished, but we are without honor. 11 To this present hour we are both hungry R158 and thirsty, and are poorly clothed, and are roughly treated, and are homeless; 12 and we toil, working R159 with our own hands; when we are reviled, R160 we bless; when we are persecuted, R161 we endure; 13 when we are slandered, we try to conciliate; F44 we have become R162 as the scum of the world, the dregs of all things, even until now.

14 I do not write these things to shame R163 you, but to admonish you as my beloved children. R164 15 For if you were to have countless tutors R165 in Christ, yet you would not have many fathers, for in Christ R166 Jesus I became R167 your father through the gospel. R168 16 Therefore I exhort you, be imitators R169 of me.

17 For this reason I have R170 sent to you Timothy, R171 who is my beloved R172 and faithful child in the Lord, and he will remind you of my ways which are in Christ, just R173 as I teach everywhere in every church. 18 Now some have become arrogant, R174 F45 as though I were not coming R175 to you. 19 But I will R176 come to you soon, if R177 the Lord wills, and I shall find out, not the words F46 of those who are arrogant R178 but their power. 20 For the kingdom of God does not R179 consist in words F47 but in power. 21 What do you desire? Shall R180 I come to you with a rod, or with love and a spirit of gentleness?

1 It is actually reported that there is immorality among you, and immorality of such a kind as does not exist even among the Gentiles, that someone has his R181 father's wife. 2 You F48 have R182 become arrogant F49 and have F48 not mourned R183 instead, so that the one who had done this deed would be removed R184 from your midst. 3 For I, on my part, though absent R185 in body but present in spirit, have already judged him who has so committed this, as though I were present. 4 In R186 the name of our Lord Jesus, when you are assembled, and I F50 with you in spirit, with R187 the power of our Lord Jesus, 5 I have decided to deliver R188 such a one to Satan R189 for the destruction of his flesh, so that his spirit may be saved in the R190 day of the Lord Jesus. F51 6 Your R191 boasting is not good. Do R192 you not know that a R193 little leaven leavens the whole lump of dough?

7 Clean out the old leaven so that you may be a new lump, just as you are in fact unleavened. For Christ our Passover R194 also has been sacrificed. 8 Therefore let us celebrate the feast, not R195 with old leaven, nor with the leaven of malice and wickedness, but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.

9 I wrote you in my letter not R196 to associate with immoral people; 10 I did not at all mean with the immoral people of this world, or with the covetous and swindlers, or with idolaters, R197 for then you would have to go out of the world. 11 But actually, F52 I wrote to you not to associate with F53 any so-called brother R198 if he is an immoral person, or covetous, or an R199 idolater, or a reviler, or a drunkard, or a swindler--not even to eat with such a one. 12 For what have I to do with judging outsiders? R200 Do R201 you not judge those who are within the church? 13 But those who are outside, God judges. F54 REMOVE THE WICKED MAN FROM AMONG YOURSELVES.

1 Does any one of you, when he has a case F55 against his neighbor, dare to go to law before the unrighteous and not R203 before the saints? F56 2 Or do R204 you not know that the R205 saints F57 will judge the R206 world? If the world is judged by you, are you not competent to constitute F58 the smallest law courts? 3 Do R207 you not know that we will judge angels? How much more matters of this life? 4 So if you have law courts dealing with matters of this life, do F59 you appoint them as judges who are of no account in the church? 5 I R208 say this to your shame. Is it so, that there is not among you one wise man who will be able to decide between his brethren, R209 6 but brother goes to law with brother, and that before unbelievers? R210 7 Actually, then, it is already a defeat for you, that you have lawsuits with one another. Why R211 not rather be wronged? Why not rather be defrauded? 8 On the contrary, you yourselves wrong and defraud. You do this even to your brethren. R212

9 Or do R213 you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit R214 the kingdom of God? Do R215 not be deceived; neither R216 fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, F60 nor homosexuals, 10 nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, will inherit R217 the kingdom of God. 11 Such R218 were some of you; but you were washed, R219 but you were sanctified, R220 but you were justified R221 in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and in the Spirit of our God.

12 All R222 things are lawful for me, but not all things are profitable. All things are lawful for me, but I will not be mastered by anything. 13 Food R223 is for the stomach F61 and the stomach F61 is for food, but God will do R224 away with both of F62 them. Yet the body is not for immorality, but for R225 the Lord, and the R226 Lord is for the body. 14 Now God has not only raised R227 the Lord, but will R228 also raise us up through His power. 15 Do R229 you not know that your R230 bodies are members of Christ? Shall I then take away the members of Christ and make them members of a prostitute? May R231 it never be! 16 Or do R232 you not know that the one who joins himself to a prostitute is one body with her? For He says, "THE TWO SHALL BECOME ONE FLESH." 17 But the one who joins himself to the Lord is one R234 spirit with Him. 18 Flee R235 immorality. Every other sin that a man commits is outside the body, but the immoral F63 man sins against his own body. 19 Or do R236 you not know that your R237 body is a temple F64 of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, F65 and that you R238 are not your own? 20 For you R239 have been bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your R240 body.

1 Now concerning the things about which you wrote, it is good R241 for a man not to touch a woman. 2 But because of immoralities, each man is to have his own wife, and each woman is to have her own husband. 3 The husband must fulfill F66 his duty to his wife, and likewise also the wife to her husband. 4 The wife does not have authority over her own body, but the husband does; and likewise also the husband does not have authority over his own body, but the wife does. 5 Stop R242 depriving one another, except by agreement for a time, so that you may devote yourselves to prayer, and come F67 together again so that Satan R243 will not tempt you because of your lack of self-control. 6 But this I say by way of concession, not R244 of command. 7 Yet F68 I wish that all men were even R245 as I myself am. However, each R246 man has his own gift from God, one in this manner, and another in that. 8 But I say to the unmarried and to widows that it is good R247 for them if they remain even R248 as I. 9 But if they do not have self-control, let R249 them marry; for it is better to marry than to burn with passion.

10 But to the married I give instructions, not R250 I, but the Lord, that the wife should not leave F69 her husband 11 (but if she does leave, she must remain unmarried, or else be reconciled to her husband), and that the husband should not divorce F70 his wife. 12 But to the rest I R251 say, not the Lord, that if any brother has a wife who is an unbeliever, and she consents to live with him, he must not divorce F71 her. 13 And a woman who has an unbelieving husband, and he consents to live with her, she must not send F72 her husband away. 14 For the unbelieving husband is sanctified through his wife, and the unbelieving wife is sanctified through her F73 believing husband; for otherwise your children are unclean, but now they are holy. R252 15 Yet if the unbelieving one leaves, let him leave; the brother or the sister is not under bondage in such cases, but God has called us F74 to R253 F75 peace. 16 For how do you know, O wife, whether you will save R254 your husband? Or how do you know, O husband, whether you will save your wife?

17 Only, as R255 the Lord has assigned to each one, as God has called each, in this manner let him walk. And so R256 I direct in all R257 the churches. 18 Was any man called when he was already circumcised? He is not to become uncircumcised. Has anyone been called in uncircumcision? He R258 is not to be circumcised. 19 Circumcision R259 is nothing, and uncircumcision is nothing, but what matters is the R260 keeping of the commandments of God. 20 Each R261 man must remain in that condition F76 in which he was called. 21 Were you called while a slave? Do F77 not worry about it; but if you are able also to become free, rather do F78 that. 22 For he who was called in the Lord while a slave, is the R262 Lord's freedman; likewise he who was called while free, is Christ's R263 slave. 23 You R264 were bought with a price; do not become slaves of men. 24 Brethren, each R265 one is to remain with God in that condition in which he was called.

25 Now concerning virgins I have no R266 command of the Lord, but I give an opinion as one who by R267 F79 the mercy of the Lord is trustworthy. 26 I think then that this is good in view of the present F80 distress, R268 that it R269 is good for a man to F81 remain as he is. 27 Are you bound to a wife? Do not seek to be released. Are you released from a wife? Do not seek a wife. 28 But if you marry, you have not sinned; and if a virgin marries, she has not sinned. Yet such will have trouble F82 in this life, and I am trying to spare you. 29 But this I say, brethren, the R270 time has been shortened, so that from now on those who have wives should be as though they had none; 30 and those who weep, as though they did not weep; and those who rejoice, as though they did not rejoice; and those who buy, as though they did not possess; 31 and those who use the world, as though they did not make R271 full use of it; for the R272 form of this world is passing away. 32 But I want you to be free from concern. One who is unmarried R273 is concerned about the things of the Lord, how he may please the Lord; 33 but one who is married is concerned about the things of the world, how he may please his wife, 34 and his interests are divided. The woman who is unmarried, and the virgin, is concerned about the things of the Lord, that she may be holy both in body and spirit; but one who is married is concerned about the things of the world, how she may please her husband. 35 This I say for your own benefit; not to put a restraint upon you, but to F83 promote what is appropriate and to secure undistracted devotion to the Lord.

36 But if any man thinks that he is acting unbecomingly toward his virgin daughter, if she is past her youth, and if it must be so, let him do what he wishes, he does not sin; let her F84 marry. 37 But he who stands firm in his heart, being F85 under no constraint, but has authority over F86 his own will, and has decided this in his own heart, to keep his own virgin daughter, he will do well. 38 So then both he who gives his own virgin daughter in marriage does well, and he who does not give her in marriage will do better.

39 A R274 wife is bound as long as her husband lives; but if her husband is F87 dead, she is free to be married to whom she wishes, only in R275 the Lord. 40 But in R276 my opinion she is happier if she remains as she is; and I think that I also have the Spirit of God.

1 Now concerning things R277 sacrificed to idols, we know that we all have knowledge. R278 Knowledge makes R279 F88 arrogant, but love edifies. R280 2 If R281 anyone supposes that he knows anything, he has not yet known R282 as he ought to know; 3 but if anyone loves God, he is R283 known by Him.

4 Therefore concerning the eating of things R284 sacrificed to idols, we know that there F89 is no R285 such thing as an idol in the world, and that there R286 is no God but one. 5 For even if there R287 are so-called gods whether in heaven or on earth, as indeed there are many gods and many lords, 6 yet for us there R288 is but one God, the R289 Father, from R290 whom are all things and we exist for Him; and one R291 Lord, Jesus Christ, by R292 whom are all things, and we exist through Him.

7 However not all men have R293 this knowledge; but some, R294 being accustomed to the idol until now, eat food as if it were sacrificed to an idol; and their conscience being weak is defiled. 8 But food R295 will not commend F90 us to God; we are neither the F91 worse if we do not eat, nor the F92 better if we do eat. 9 But take R296 care that this liberty F93 of yours does not somehow become a stumbling block to the weak. R297 10 For if someone sees you, who have knowledge, R298 dining in an idol's temple, will not his conscience, if he is weak, be strengthened to eat things R299 sacrificed to idols? 11 For through your R300 knowledge he who is weak is R301 ruined, the brother for whose sake Christ died. 12 And R302 so, by sinning against the brethren and wounding their conscience when it is weak, you sin against R303 Christ. 13 Therefore, if R304 food causes my brother to stumble, I will never eat meat again, so that I will not cause my brother to stumble.

1 Am I not free? R305 Am I not an apostle? R306 Have I not seen R307 Jesus our Lord? Are you not my R308 work in the Lord? 2 If to others I am not an apostle, at least I am to you; for you are the seal R309 of my apostleship R310 in the Lord.

3 My defense to those who examine me is this: 4 Do R311 F94 we not have a right to eat and drink? 5 Do R312 F95 we not have a right to take along a believing F96 wife, even as the rest of the apostles and the brothers R313 of the Lord and Cephas? R314 6 Or do only Barnabas R315 F97 and I not have a right to refrain from working? 7 Who at any time serves as R316 a soldier at his own expense? Who plants R317 a vineyard and does not eat the fruit of it? Or who tends a flock and does not use F98 the milk of the flock? 8 I am not speaking these things according R318 to human F99 judgment, am I? Or does not the Law also say these things? 9 For it is written in the Law of Moses, "YOU SHALL NOT MUZZLE THE OX WHILE HE IS THRESHING." God is not concerned about oxen, R320 is He? 10 Or is He speaking altogether for our sake? Yes, for R321 our sake it was written, because the R322 plowman ought to plow in hope, and the thresher to thresh in hope of sharing the crops. 11 If R323 we sowed spiritual things in you, is it too much if we reap material things from you? 12 If others share the right over you, do we not more? Nevertheless, we did R324 not use this right, but we endure all things so R325 that we will cause no hindrance to the gospel R326 of Christ. 13 Do R327 you not know that those who perform R328 sacred services eat the food of the temple, and those who attend regularly to the altar have their share from F100 the altar? 14 So also the R329 Lord directed those who proclaim the gospel R330 to get R331 their living from the gospel.

15 But I have used R332 none of these things. And I am not writing these things so that it will be done so in my case; for it would be better for me to die than have any man make my R333 boast an empty one. 16 For if I preach the gospel, I have nothing to boast of, for I R334 am under compulsion; for woe is me if I do not preach the R335 gospel. 17 For if I do this voluntarily, I have a reward; R336 but if against my will, I have a stewardship R337 entrusted to me. 18 What then is my reward? R338 That, when I preach the gospel, I may offer the gospel without R339 charge, so as not R340 to make full use of my right in the gospel.

19 For though I am free R341 from all men, I have made myself a R342 slave to all, so that I may win R343 more. 20 To R344 the Jews I became as a Jew, so that I might win Jews; to those who are under the F101 Law, as under the F101 Law though not R345 being myself under the F101 Law, so that I might win those who are under the F101 Law; 21 to those who are without R346 law, as R347 without law, though not being without the law of God but under R348 the law of Christ, so that I might win those who are without law. 22 To the weak R349 I became weak, that I might win the weak; I have become all R350 things to all men, so R351 that I may by all means save some. 23 I do all things for the sake of the gospel, so that I may become a fellow partaker of it.

24 Do R352 you not know that those who run in a race all run, but only one receives the R353 prize? Run R354 in such a way that you may win. 25 Everyone who competes R355 in the games exercises self-control in all things. They then do it to receive a perishable wreath, R356 but we an imperishable. 26 Therefore I run R357 in such a way, as not without aim; I box in such a way, as not beating R358 the air; 27 but I discipline F102 my R359 body and make it my slave, so that, after I have preached to others, I myself will not be disqualified.

1 For I R360 do not want you to be unaware, brethren, that our fathers were all under R361 the cloud and all passed R362 through the sea; 2 and all were baptized R363 into Moses in the cloud and in the sea; 3 and all ate R364 the same spiritual food; 4 and all drank R365 the same spiritual drink, for they were drinking from a spiritual rock which followed them; and the rock was Christ. F103 5 Nevertheless, with most of them God was not well-pleased; for they R366 were laid low in the wilderness.

6 Now these things happened as examples R367 for us, so that we would not crave evil things as they R368 also craved. 7 Do not be idolaters, R369 as some of them were; as it is written, "THE PEOPLE SAT DOWN TO EAT AND DRINK, AND STOOD UP TO PLAY." 8 Nor let us act immorally, as some R372 of them did, F104 and twenty-three R373 thousand fell in one day. 9 Nor let us try the Lord, as some R374 of them did, F105 and were destroyed by the serpents. 10 Nor grumble, R375 as some of them did, F106 and were R376 destroyed by the destroyer. R377 11 Now these things happened to them as an example, R378 and they R379 were written for our instruction, upon whom the R380 ends of the ages have come. 12 Therefore let him who thinks R381 he stands take heed that he does not fall. 13 No temptation has overtaken you but such as is common to man; and God R382 is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted R383 beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will provide the way of escape also, so that you will be able to endure it. 14 Therefore, my beloved, R384 flee from idolatry. R385

15 I speak as to wise men; you judge what I say. 16 Is not the cup R386 of blessing which we bless a sharing in the blood of Christ? Is not the bread R387 F107 which we break a sharing in the body of Christ? 17 Since there is one bread, F108 we who R388 are many are one body; for we all partake of the one bread. F108 18 Look at the F109 nation Israel; R389 are not those who eat R390 the sacrifices sharers in the altar? 19 What do I mean then? That a thing sacrificed to idols is anything, or that R391 an idol is anything? 20 No, but I say that the things which the Gentiles sacrifice, they sacrifice R392 to demons and not to God; and I do not want you to become sharers in demons. 21 You R393 cannot drink the cup of the Lord and the cup of demons; you cannot partake of the table of the Lord and the R394 table of demons. 22 Or do we provoke R395 the Lord to jealousy? We are not stronger R396 than He, are we?

23 All R397 things are lawful, but not all things are profitable. All things are lawful, but not all things edify. R398 24 Let no one seek R399 his own good, but that of his neighbor. F110 25 Eat R400 anything that is sold in the meat market without asking questions for conscience' sake; 26 FOR THE EARTH IS THE LORD'S, AND ALL IT CONTAINS. 27 If one R402 of the unbelievers invites you and you want to go, eat R403 anything that is set before you without asking questions for conscience' sake. 28 But if R404 anyone says to you, "This is meat sacrificed to idols," do not eat it, for the sake of the one who informed you, and for conscience' sake; 29 I mean not your own conscience, but the other man's; for why R405 is my freedom judged by another's conscience? 30 If I partake with thankfulness, why R406 am I slandered concerning that for which I give R407 thanks? 31 Whether, then, you eat or drink or whatever R408 you do, do all to the glory of God. 32 Give R409 no offense either to Jews or to Greeks or to the R410 church of God; 33 just as I also please R411 all men in all things, not R412 seeking my own profit but the profit of the many, so R413 that they may be saved.

1 Be R414 imitators of me, just as I also am of Christ. 2 Now I R415 praise you because you remember R416 me in everything and hold R417 firmly to the traditions, just as I delivered them to you. 3 But I want you to understand that Christ F112 is the head R418 of every man, and the R419 man is the head of a woman, and God is the head R420 of Christ. F112 4 Every man who has something on his head while praying or prophesying R421 disgraces his head. 5 But every woman R422 who has her head uncovered while praying or prophesying disgraces her head, for she is one and the same as the woman whose F113 head is shaved. R423 6 For if a woman does not cover her F114 head, let her also have F115 her hair cut off; but if it is disgraceful for a woman to have F115 her hair cut off or her F114 head shaved, let her cover her F114 head. 7 For a man ought not to have his head covered, since he is the image R424 and glory of God; but the woman is the glory of man. 8 For man R425 does F116 not originate from woman, but woman from man; 9 for indeed man was not created for the woman's sake, but woman R426 for the man's sake. 10 Therefore the woman ought to have a symbol of authority on her head, because of the angels. 11 However, in the Lord, neither is woman independent F117 of man, nor is man independent F117 of woman. 12 For as the woman originates F118 from the man, so also the man has his birth through the woman; and all R427 things originate F119 from R428 God. 13 Judge R429 for F120 yourselves: is it proper for a woman to pray to God with her head uncovered?
