1:1 Paul called to be an apostle of Jesus Christ through the will of God,
and Sosthenes our brother,
1:2 Unto the church of God which is at Corinth, to them that are sanctified
in Christ Jesus, called to be saints, with all that in every place call upon
the name of Jesus Christ our Lord, both their's and our's:
1:3 Grace be unto you, and peace, from God our Father, and from the Lord
1:4 I thank my God always on your behalf, for the grace of God which is given
you by Jesus Christ;
1:5 That in every thing all of you are enriched by him, in all utterance,
(o. logos) and in all knowledge;
1:6 Even as the testimony of Christ was confirmed in you:
1:7 So that all of you come behind in no gift; waiting for the coming of
our Lord Jesus Christ:
1:8 Who shall also confirm you unto the end, that all of you may be blameless
in the day of our Lord Jesus Christ.
1:9 God is faithful, by whom all of you were called unto the fellowship of
his Son Jesus Christ our Lord.
1:10 Now I plead to you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ,
that all of you all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among
you; but that all of you be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in
the same judgment.
1:11 For it has been declared unto me of you, my brethren, by them which
are of the house of Chloe, that there are contentions among you.
1:12 Now this I say, that every one of you says, I am of Paul; and I of Apollos;
and I of Cephas; and I of Christ.
1:13 Is Christ divided? was Paul crucified for you? or were all of you baptized
in the name of Paul?
1:14 I thank God that I baptized none of you, but Crispus and Gaius;
1:15 Lest any should say that I had baptized in mine own name.
1:16 And I baptized also the household of Stephanas: besides, I know not
whether I baptized any other.
1:17 For Christ sent me not to baptize, but to preach the gospel: not with
wisdom of words, (o. logos) lest the cross of Christ should be made of no effect.
1:18 For the preaching (o. logos) of the cross is to them that perish foolishness;
but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.
1:19 For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring
to nothing the understanding of the prudent.
1:20 Where is the wise? where is the scribe? where is the disputer of this
world? has not God made foolish the wisdom of this world?
1:21 For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God,
it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe.
1:22 For the Jews require a sign, and the Greeks seek after wisdom:
1:23 But we preach Christ crucified, unto the Jews a stumbling block, and
unto the Greeks foolishness;
1:24 But unto them which are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power
of God, and the wisdom of God.
1:25 Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the weakness of
God is stronger than men.
1:26 For all of you see your calling, brethren, how that not many wise men
after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called:
1:27 But God has chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise;
and God has chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which
1:28 And base things of the world, and things which are despised, has God
chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to nothing things that are:
1:29 That no flesh should glory in his presence.
1:30 But of him are all of you in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us
wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption:
1:31 That, according as it is written, He that glories, let him glory in
