Appeal to Unity

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.

The Wisdom of God

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 R67 HIM WHO BOASTS, BOAST IN THE LORD."
