CHAPTER 1

CHAPTER 1

1 Paul, an apostle, called of Jesus Christ through the will of God; and Sosthenes our brother,

1 Paul called to be an apostle of Jesus Christ through the will of God, and Sosthenes our brother,

4 I thank my God always on your behalf, for the grace of God which is given you of Jesus Christ; 

4 I thank my God always on your behalf, for the grace of God which is given you by Jesus Christ;

5 That in everything ye are enriched of him, in all utterance, and in all knowledge; 

5 That in every thing ye are enriched by him, in all utterance, and in all knowledge;

10 Now I beseech you, brethren, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you; but that ye be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment. 

10 Now I beseech you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you; but that ye be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment.

12 Now this I say, that many of you saith, I am of Paul; and I of Apollos; and I of Cephas; and I of Christ. 

12 Now this I say, that every one of you saith, I am of Paul; and I of Apollos; and I of Cephas; and I of Christ.

24 But unto them who believe, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God. 

24 But unto them which are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God.

26 For ye see your calling, brethren, how that not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are chosen; 

26 For ye see your calling, brethren, how that not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called:

27 For God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty; 

27 But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty;

28 And base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to naught things that are mighty; 

28 And base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are:

CHAPTER 2

CHAPTER 2

11 For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? even so the things of God knoweth no man, except he has the Spirit of God. 

11 For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God.

CHAPTER 3

CHAPTER 3

2 I have fed you with milk, and not with meat; for hitherto ye were not able to receive it, neither yet now are ye able. 

2 I have fed you with milk, and not with meat: for hitherto ye were not able to bear it, neither yet now are ye able.

15 If any man's work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss; but he himself may be saved; yet so as by fire. 

15 If any man's work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire.

CHAPTER 4

CHAPTER 4

2 Moreover it is required of stewards, that a man be found faithful.

2 Moreover it is required in stewards, that a man be found faithful.

4 For though I know nothing against myself; yet I am not hereby justified; but he who judgeth me is the Lord. 

4 For I know nothing by myself; yet am I not hereby justified: but he that judgeth me is the Lord.

5 Therefore I judge nothing before the time, until the Lord come, who both will bring to light the hidden things of darkness, and will make manifest the counsels of the hearts; and then shall every man have praise of God. 

5 Therefore judge nothing before the time, until the Lord come, who both will bring to light the hidden things of darkness, and will make manifest the counsels of the hearts: and then shall every man have praise of God.

CHAPTER 5

CHAPTER 5

3 For verily, as absent in body but present in spirit, I have judged already him who hath so done this deed, as though I were present. 

3 For I verily, as absent in body, but present in spirit, have judged already, as though I were present, concerning him that hath so done this deed,

4 In the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, when ye are gathered together, and have the Spirit, with the power of our Lord Jesus Christ,

4 In the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, when ye are gathered together, and my spirit, with the power of our Lord Jesus Christ,

5 To deliver such a one unto Satan for the destruction of the flesh, that the spirit may be saved in the day of the Lord Jesus. 

5 To deliver such an one unto Satan for the destruction of the flesh, that the spirit may be saved in the day of the Lord Jesus.

12 For what have I to do to judge them also that are without? do not they judge them that are within? 

12 For what have I to do to judge them also that are without? do not ye judge them that are within?

CHAPTER 6

CHAPTER 6

12 All these things are not lawful unto me, and all these things are not expedient. All things are not lawful for me, therefore I will not be brought under the power of any. 

12 All things are lawful unto me, but all things are not expedient: all things are lawful for me, but I will not be brought under the power of any.

18 Flee fornication. Every sin that a man committeth is against the body of Christ, and he who committeth fornication sinneth against his own body. 

18 Flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is without the body; but he that committeth fornication sinneth against his own body.

CHAPTER 7

CHAPTER 7

1 Now concerning the things whereof ye wrote unto me, saying, It is good for a man not to touch a woman. 

1 Now concerning the things whereof ye wrote unto me: It is good for a man not to touch a woman.

2 Nevertheless, I say, to avoid fornication, let every man have his own wife, and let every woman have her own husband. 

2 Nevertheless, to avoid fornication, let every man have his own wife, and let every woman have her own husband.

5 Depart ye not one from the other, except it be with consent for a time, that ye may give yourselves to fasting and prayer; and come together again, that Satan tempt you not for your incontinency. 

5 Defraud ye not one the other, except it be with consent for a time, that ye may give yourselves to fasting and prayer; and come together again, that Satan tempt you not for your incontinency.

6 And now what I speak is by permission, and not by commandment.

6 But I speak this by permission, and not of commandment.

7 For I would that all men were even as myself. But every man hath his proper gift of God, one after this manner, and another after that. 

7 For I would that all men were even as I myself. But every man hath his proper gift of God, one after this manner, and another after that.

9 But if they cannot abide, let them marry; for it is better to marry than that any should commit sin. 

9 But if they cannot contain, let them marry: for it is better to marry than to burn.

11 But if she depart, let her remain unmarried, or be reconciled to her husband; but let not the husband put away his wife. 

11 But and if she depart, let her remain unmarried, or be reconciled to her husband: and let not the husband put away his wife.

26 I suppose therefore that this is good for the present distress, for a man so to remain that he may do greater good. 

26 I suppose therefore that this is good for the present distress, I say, that it is good for a man so to be.

28 But if thou marry, thou hast not sinned; and if a virgin marry, she hath not sinned. Nevertheless, such shall have trouble in the flesh. For I spare you not.

28 But and if thou marry, thou hast not sinned; and if a virgin marry, she hath not sinned. Nevertheless such shall have trouble in the flesh: but I spare you.

29 But I speak unto you who are called unto the ministry. For this I say, brethren, the time that remaineth is but short, that ye shall be sent forth unto the ministry. Even they who have wives, shall be as though they had none; for ye are called and chosen to do the Lord's work. 

29 But this I say, brethren, the time is short: it remaineth, that both they that have wives be as though they had none;

30 And it shall be with them who weep, as though they wept not; and them who rejoice, as though they rejoiced not, and them who buy, as though they possessed not; 

30 And they that weep, as though they wept not; and they that rejoice, as though they rejoiced not; and they that buy, as though they possessed not;

31 And them who use this world, as not using it; for the fashion of this world passeth away. 

31 And they that use this world, as not abusing it: for the fashion of this world passeth away.

32 But I would, brethren, that ye magnify your calling. I would have you without carefulness. For he who is unmarried, careth for the things that belong to the Lord, how he may please the Lord; therefore he prevaileth. 

32 But I would have you without carefulness. He that is unmarried careth for the things that belong to the Lord, how he may please the Lord:

33 But he who is married, careth for the things that are of the world, how he may please his wife; therefore there is a difference, for he is hindered. 

33 But he that is married careth for the things that are of the world, how he may please his wife.

34 There is a difference also, between a wife and a virgin. The unmarried woman careth for the things of the Lord, that she may be holy both in body and in spirit; but she that is married careth for the things of the world, how she may please her husband. 

34 There is difference also between a wife and a virgin. The unmarried woman careth for the things of the Lord, that she may be holy both in body and in spirit: but she that is married careth for the things of the world, how she may please her husband.

36 But if any man think that he behaveth himself uncomely toward his virgin whom he hath expoused, if she pass the flower of age, and need so require, let him do what he hath promised, he sinneth not; let them marry. 

36 But if any man think that he behaveth himself uncomely toward his virgin, if she pass the flower of her age, and need so require, let him do what he will, he sinneth not: let them marry.

38 So then he that giveth himself in marriage doeth well; but he that giveth himself not in marriage doeth better. 

38 So then he that giveth her in marriage doeth well; but he that giveth her not in marriage doeth better.

CHAPTER 8

4 As concerning therefore the eating of those things which are in the world offered in sacrifice unto idols, we know that an idol is nothing, and that there is nothing, and that there is none other God but one. 

4 As concerning therefore the eating of those things that are offered in sacrifice unto idols, we know that an idol is nothing in the world, and that there is none other God but one.

CHAPTER 9

CHAPTER 9

24 Know ye not that they which run in a race all run, but only one receiveth the prize? So run, that ye may obtain. 

24 Know ye not that they which run in a race run all, but one receiveth the prize? So run, that ye may obtain.

CHAPTER 10

CHAPTER 10

8 Neither let us commit fornication, as some of them committed, and fell in one day three and twenty thousand. 

8 Neither let us commit fornication, as some of them committed, and fell in one day three and twenty thousand.

11 Now, all these things happened unto them for ensamples; and they were written for our admonition also, and for an admonition for those upon whom the end of the world shall come. 

11 Now all these things happened unto them for ensamples: and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come.

23 All things are not lawful for me, for all things are not expedient? all things are not lawful, for all things edify not. 

23 All things are lawful for me, but all things are not expedient: all things are lawful for me, but all things edify not.

24 Let no man seek therefore his own, but every man another's good.

24 Let no man seek his own, but every man another's wealth.

27 If any of them that believe not bid you to a feast, and ye be disposed to eat; whatsoever is set before you, eat, asking no questions for conscience' sake. 

27 If any of them that believe not bid you to a feast, and ye be disposed to go; whatsoever is set before you, eat, asking no question for conscience sake.

33 Even as I please all men in all things, not seeking mine own profit, but of the many, that they may be saved. 

33 Even as I please all men in all things, not seeking mine own profit, but the profit of many, that they may be saved.

CHAPTER 11

CHAPTER 11

5 But every woman that prayeth or prophesieth with her head uncovered dishonoreth her head; for that is even all one as if she were shaven. 

5 But every woman that prayeth or prophesieth with her head uncovered dishonoureth her head: for that is even all one as if she were shaven.

6 For if the woman be not covered, let her also be shorn; but if it be a shame for a woman to be shorn or shaven, let her be covered. 

6 For if the woman be not covered, let her also be shorn: but if it be a shame for a woman to be shorn or shaven, let her be covered.

10 For this cause ought the woman to have a covering on her head because of the angels. 

10 For this cause ought the woman to have power on her head because of the angels.

19 For there must be also divisions among you, that they which are approved may be made manifest among you. 

19 For there must be also heresies among you, that they which are approved may be made manifest among you.

20 When ye come together into one place, is it not to eat the Lord's supper? 

20 When ye come together therefore into one place, this is not to eat the Lord's supper.

21 But in eating everyone taketh before his own supper; and one is hungry, and another is drunken. 

21 For in eating every one taketh before other his own supper: and one is hungry, and another is drunken.

29 For he that eateth and drinketh unworthily, eateth and drinketh condemnation to himself, not discerning the Lord's body. 

29 For he that eateth and drinketh unworthily, eateth and drinketh damnation to himself, not discerning the Lord's body.

CHAPTER 12

CHAPTER 12

1 Now concerning spiritual things, brethren, I would not have you ignorant. 

1 Now concerning spiritual gifts, brethren, I would not have you ignorant.

31 I say unto you, Nay; for I have shown unto you a more excellent way, therefore covet earnestly the best gifts. 

31 But covet earnestly the best gifts: and yet shew I unto you a more excellent way.

CHAPTER 14

CHAPTER 14

2 For he that speaketh in another tongue speaketh not unto men, but unto God; for no man understandeth him; howbeit in the spirit he speaketh mysteries. 

2 For he that speaketh in an unknown tongue speaketh not unto men, but unto God: for no man understandeth him; howbeit in the spirit he speaketh mysteries.

4 He that speaketh in another tongue edifieth himself; but he that prophesieth edifieth the church. 

4 He that speaketh in an unknown tongue edifieth himself; but he that prophesieth edifieth the church.

13 Wherefore let him that speaketh in another tongue pray that he may interpret.

13 Wherefore let him that speaketh in an unknown tongue pray that he may interpret.

14 For if I pray in another tongue, my spirit prayeth, but my understanding is unfruitful. 

14 For if I pray in an unknown tongue, my spirit prayeth, but my understanding is unfruitful.

19 Yet in the church I had rather speak five words with my understanding, that by my voice I might teach others also, than ten thousand words in another tongue. 

19 Yet in the church I had rather speak five words with my understanding, that by my voice I might teach others also, than ten thousand words in an unknown tongue.

27 If any man speak in another tongue, let it be by two, or at the most by three, and that by course; and let one interpret. 

27 If any man speak in an unknown tongue, let it be by two, or at the most by three, and that by course; and let one interpret.

34 Let your women keep silence in the churches; for it is not permitted unto them to rule; but to be under obedience, as also saith the law. 

34 Let your women keep silence in the churches: for it is not permitted unto them to speak; but they are commanded to be under obedience, as also saith the law.

35 And if they will learn anything, let them ask their husbands at home; for it is a shame for women to rule in the church. 

35 And if they will learn any thing, let them ask their husbands at home: for it is a shame for women to speak in the church.

CHAPTER 15

CHAPTER 15

10 But by the grace of God I am what I am; and his grace which was bestowed upon me was not in vain; for I labored more abundantly than they all; yet not I, but the grace of God which was with me. 

10 But by the grace of God I am what I am: and his grace which was bestowed upon me was not in vain; but I laboured more abundantly than they all: yet not I, but the grace of God which was with me.

24 Afterward cometh the end, when he shall have delivered up the kingdom to God, even the Father; when he shall have put down all rule, and all authority and power. 

24 Then cometh the end, when he shall have delivered up the kingdom to God, even the Father; when he shall have put down all rule and all authority and power.

26 The last enemy, death, shall be destroyed.

26 The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death.

27 For he saith, When it is manifest that he hath put all things under his feet, and that all things are put under, he is excepted of the Father who did put all things under him. 

27 For he hath put all things under his feet. But when he saith, all things are put under him, it is manifest that he is excepted, which did put all things under him.

31 I protest unto you the resurrection of the dead; and this is my rejoicing which I have in Christ Jesus our Lord daily, though I die. 

31 I protest by your rejoicing which I have in Christ Jesus our Lord, I die daily.

37 And that which thou sowest, thou sowest not that body which shall be, but grain, it may be of wheat, or some other; 

37 And that which thou sowest, thou sowest not that body that shall be, but bare grain, it may chance of wheat, or of some other grain:

40 Also celestial bodies, and bodies terrestrial, and bodies telestial; but the glory of the celestial, one; and the terrestrial, another; and the telestial, another. 

40 There are also celestial bodies, and bodies terrestrial: but the glory of the celestial is one, and the glory of the terrestrial is another.

46 Howbeit, that which is natural first, and not that which is spiritual; but afterwards, that which is spiritual; 

46 Howbeit that was not first which is spiritual, but that which is natural; and afterward that which is spiritual.

52 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the sound of the last trump; for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. 

52 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.
