046:012:001
Now concerning spiritual gifts,
brethren,
I would not have you ignorant.


046:012:002
Ye know that ye were Gentiles,
carried away unto these dumb idols,
even as ye were led.


046:012:003
Wherefore I give you to understand,
that no man speaking by the Spirit of God calleth Jesus accursed:
and that no man can say that Jesus is the Lord,
but by the Holy Ghost.


046:012:004
Now there are diversities of gifts,
but the same Spirit.


046:012:005
And there are differences of administrations,
but the same Lord.


046:012:006
And there are diversities of operations,
but it is the same God which worketh all in all.


046:012:007
But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man to profit withal.


046:012:008
For to one is given by the Spirit the word of wisdom;
to another the word of knowledge by the same Spirit;


046:012:009
To another faith by the same Spirit;
to another the gifts of healing by the same Spirit;


046:012:010
To another the working of miracles;
to another prophecy;
to another discerning of spirits;
to another divers kinds of tongues;
to another the interpretation of tongues:


046:012:011
But all these worketh that one and the selfsame Spirit,
dividing to every man severally as he will.


046:012:012
For as the body is one,
and hath many members,
and all the members of that one body,
being many,
are one body:
so also is Christ.


046:012:013
For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body,
whether we be Jews or Gentiles,
whether we be bond or free;
and have been all made to drink into one Spirit.


046:012:014
For the body is not one member,
but many.


046:012:015
If the foot shall say,
Because I am not the hand,
I am not of the body;
is it therefore not of the body?


046:012:016
And if the ear shall say,
Because I am not the eye,
I am not of the body;
is it therefore not of the body?


046:012:017
If the whole body were an eye,
where were the hearing?
If the whole were hearing,
where were the smelling?


046:012:018
But now hath God set the members every one of them in the body,
as it hath pleased him.


046:012:019
And if they were all one member,
where were the body?


046:012:020
But now are they many members,
yet but one body.


046:012:021
And the eye cannot say unto the hand,
I have no need of thee:
nor again the head to the feet,
I have no need of you.


046:012:022
Nay,
much more those members of the body,
which seem to be more feeble,
are necessary:


046:012:023
And those members of the body,
which we think to be less honourable,
upon these we bestow more abundant honour;
and our uncomely parts have more abundant comeliness.


046:012:024
For our comely parts have no need:
but God hath tempered the body together,
having given more abundant honour to that part which lacked.


046:012:025
That there should be no schism in the body;
but that the members should have the same care one for another.


046:012:026
And whether one member suffer,
all the members suffer with it;
or one member be honoured,
all the members rejoice with it.


046:012:027
Now ye are the body of Christ,
and members in particular.


046:012:028
And God hath set some in the church,
first apostles,
secondarily prophets,
thirdly teachers,
after that miracles,
then gifts of healings,
helps,
governments,
diversities of tongues.


046:012:029
Are all apostles?
are all prophets?
are all teachers?
are all workers of miracles?


046:012:030
Have all the gifts of healing?
do all speak with tongues?
do all interpret?


046:012:031
But covet earnestly the best gifts:
and yet shew I unto you a more excellent way.
