1 Corinthians 3 - AMP

2 I fed you with milk, not solid food, for you were not yet strong enough ; but even yet you are not strong enough , 3 For you are still of the flesh . For as long as envying and jealousy and wrangling and factions among you, are you not unspiritual and of the flesh, behaving yourselves after a human standard and like mere (unchanged) men? 4 For when one says, I belong to Paul, and another, I belong to Apollos, are you not ordinary (unchanged) men? 5 What then is Apollos? What is Paul? Ministering servants through whom you believed, even as the Lord appointed to each his task: 6 I planted, Apollos watered, but God was making it grow and gave the increase. 7 So neither he who plants is anything nor he who waters, but God Who makes it grow and become greater. 8 He who plants and he who waters are equal (one in aim, of the same importance and esteem), yet each shall receive his own reward (wages), according to his own labor. 9 For we are fellow workmen (joint promoters, laborers together) with and for God; you are God's Johann Bengel, Gnomon Novi Testamenti.garden and vineyard and field under cultivation, God's building. 10 According to the grace (the special endowment for my task) of God bestowed on me, like a skillful architect and master builder I laid foundation, and now another is building upon it. But let each be careful how he builds upon it, 11 For no other foundation can anyone lay than that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ (the Messiah, the Anointed One). 12 But if anyone builds upon the Foundation, whether it be with gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, straw, 13 The work of each will become known (shown for what it is); for the day will disclose and declare it, because it will be revealed with fire, and the fire will test and critically appraise the character and worth of the work each person has done. 14 If the work which any person has built on this Foundation survives , he will get his reward. 15 But if any person's work is burned up , he will suffer the loss , though he himself will be saved, but only as through fire. 16 Do you not discern and understand that you are God's temple (His sanctuary), and that God's Spirit has His permanent dwelling in you ? 17 If anyone The Cambridge Bible for Schools and Colleges.does hurt to God's temple or corrupts it or destroys it, God will The Cambridge Bible for Schools and Colleges.do hurt to him and bring him to the corruption of death and destroy him. For the temple of God is holy (sacred to Him) and that you are. 18 Let no person deceive himself. If anyone among you supposes that he is wise in this age, let him become a fool , that he may become wise. 19 For this world's wisdom is foolishness (absurdity and stupidity) with God, for it is written, He lays hold of the wise in their craftiness; 20 And again, The Lord knows the thoughts and reasonings of the wise and recognizes how futile they are. 21 So let no one exult proudly concerning men , for all things are yours, 22 Whether Paul or Apollos or Cephas (Peter), or the universe or life or death, or the immediate and Marvin Vincent, Word Studies.threatening present or the future--all are yours, 23 And you are Christ's, and Christ is God's.
