The Use of Spiritual Gifts

1 Now concerning spiritual R454 gifts, brethren, I R455 do not want you to be unaware. 2 You R456 know that when you were pagans, you were led R457 astray to the mute R458 idols, however you were led. 3 Therefore I make known to you that no one speaking by R459 F126 the Spirit of God says, "Jesus is accursed"; R460 F127 and no one can say, "Jesus is Lord," R461 except by R459 F126 the Holy Spirit.

4 Now there are varieties R462 of gifts, but the same Spirit. 5 And there are varieties of ministries, and the same Lord. 6 There are varieties of effects, but the same God R463 who works all things in all persons. 7 But to each one is given the manifestation of the Spirit for R464 the common good. 8 For to one is given the word of wisdom R465 through the Spirit, and to another the word of knowledge R466 according to the same Spirit; 9 to another faith R467 by F128 the same Spirit, and to another gifts R468 of healing F129 by F128 the one Spirit, 10 and to another the effecting F130 of miracles, R469 F131 and to another prophecy, R470 and to another the distinguishing R471 F132 of spirits, to another various kinds R472 of tongues, and to another the interpretation R473 of tongues. 11 But one and the same Spirit works all these things, distributing R474 to each one individually just as He wills.

12 For even as R475 the body is one and yet has many members, and all the members of the body, though they are many, are one body, so R476 also is Christ. 13 For by R477 F133 one Spirit we were all baptized into one body, whether Jews R478 or Greeks, whether slaves or free, and we were all made to drink R479 of one Spirit.

14 For the R480 body is not one member, but many. 15 If the foot says, "Because I am not a hand, I am not a part of the body," it is not for this reason any F134 the less a part of the body. 16 And if the ear says, "Because I am not an eye, I am not a part of the body," it is not for this reason any F135 the less a part of the body. 17 If the whole body were an eye, where would the hearing be? If the whole were hearing, where would the sense of smell be? 18 But now God has placed R481 the members, each one of them, in the body, just R482 as He desired. 19 If they were all one member, where would the body be? 20 But now there R483 are many members, but one body. 21 And the eye cannot say to the hand, "I have no need of you"; or again the head to the feet, "I have no need of you." 22 On the contrary, it F136 is much truer that the members of the body which seem to be weaker are necessary; 23 and those members of the body which we deem F137 less honorable, on F138 these we bestow more abundant honor, and our less presentable members become much more presentable, 24 whereas our more presentable members have no need of it. But God has so composed the body, giving more abundant honor to that member which lacked, 25 so that there may be no division F139 in the body, but that the members may have the same care for one another. 26 And if one member suffers, all the members suffer with it; if one member is honored, F140 all the members rejoice with it.

27 Now you are Christ's R484 body, and individually R485 members of it. 28 And God has appointed R486 F141 in the R487 church, first apostles, R488 second prophets, R489 third teachers, R490 then miracles, R491 F142 then gifts R492 of healings, helps, administrations, R493 various kinds R494 of tongues. 29 All are not apostles, are they? All are not prophets, are they? All are not teachers, are they? All are not workers of miracles, F143 are they? 30 All do not have gifts of healings, do they? All do not speak with tongues, do they? All do not interpret, R495 do they? 31 But earnestly R496 desire the greater gifts.

And I show you a still more excellent way.
