1 Corinthians 3

3:1 And I, brethren, was not able to speak to you as to spiritual, but as to fleshly--as to babes in Christ; 3:2 with milk I fed you, and not with meat, for ye were not yet able, but not even yet are ye now able, 3:3 for yet ye are fleshly, for where [there is] among you envying, and strife, and divisions, are ye not fleshly, and in the manner of men do walk 3:4 for when one may say, `I, indeed, am of Paul;' and another, `I--of Apollos;' are ye not fleshly  3:5 Who, then, is Paul, and who Apollos, but ministrants through whom ye did believe, and to each as the Lord gave 3:6 I planted, Apollos watered, but God was giving growth; 3:7 so that neither is he who is planting anything, nor he who is watering, but He who is giving growth--God; 3:8 and he who is planting and he who is watering are one, and each his own reward shall receive, according to his own labour, 3:9 for of God we are fellow-workmen; God's tillage, God's building ye are. 3:10 According to the grace of God that was given to me, as a wise master-builder, a foundation I have laid, and another doth build on [it] ,  3:11 for other foundation no one is able to lay except that which is laid, which is Jesus the Christ; 3:12 and if any one doth build upon this foundation gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, straw-- 3:13 of each the work shall become manifest, for the day shall declare [it] , because in fire it is revealed, and the work of each, what kind it is, the fire shall prove; 3:14 if of any one the work doth remain that he built on [it] , a wage he shall receive; 3:15 if of any the work is burned up, he shall suffer loss; and himself shall be saved, but so as through fire.  3:16 have ye not known that ye are a sanctuary of God, and the Spirit of God doth dwell in you 3:17 if any one the sanctuary of God doth waste, him shall God waste; for the sanctuary of God is holy, the which ye are.  3:18 Let no one deceive himself; if any one doth seem to be wise among you in this age--let him become a fool, that he may become wise, 3:19 for the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God, for it hath been written, `Who is taking the wise in their craftiness;' 3:20 and again, `The Lord doth know the reasonings of the wise, that they are vain.'  3:21 So then, let no one glory in men, for all things are yours, 3:22 whether Paul, or Apollos, or Cephas, or the world, or life, or death, or things present, or things about to be--all are yours, 3:23 and ye [are] Christ's, and Christ [is] God's.
