Spiritual Gifts

1Now concerning the spiritual gifts, brethren, I do not wish you to be ignorant. 2Ye know that ye were gentiles, carried away to the dumb idols, as ye were led. 3Wherefore, I make known to you that no one speaking in the Spirit of God, says, "Jesus is accursed"; and no one can say, "Jesus is Lord," except in the Holy Spirit.

4Now there are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit. 5And there are diversities of ministries, and the same Lord. 6And there are diversities of workings, but the same God, Who worketh all things in all. 7And to each one is given the manifestation of the Spirit for profiting. 8For to one, indeed, is given through the Spirit a word of wisdom; and to another, a word of knowledge, according to the same Spirit; 9to another, faith, in the same Spirit; and to another, gifts of healings, in the one Spirit; 10and to another, workings of mighty deeds; and to another, prophecy; and to another, discerning of spirits; to another, various kinds of tongues; and to another, interpretation of tongues. 11But all these worketh the one and the same Spirit, distributing to each one, severally, even as He willeth.

The Body of Christ

12For, as the body is one, and has many members, and all the members of the body, being many, are one body; so also is the Christ; 13for, indeed, in one Spirit were we all immersed into one body, whether Jews or Greeks, whether bond or free; and were all made to drink of one Spirit.

14For the body also is not one member, but many. 15If the foot should say, "Because I am not a hand, I am not of the body"; it is not, therefore, not of the body. 16And, if the ear should say, "Because I am not an eye, I am not of the body"; it is not, therefore, not of the body. 17If the whole body were an eye, where were the hearing? If the whole body were hearing, where were the smelling? 18But, as it is, God did set the members, each one of them in the body, even as He willed. 19And, if they were all one member, where were the body? 20But now they are many members, but one body. 21And the eye cannot say to the hand, "I have no need of you"; nor again the head to the feet, "I have no need of you." 22But much more the members of the body which seem to be more feeble, are necessary; 23and those members which we think to be less honorable, upon these we bestow more abundant honor; and our uncomely parts have more abundant comeliness; 24but our comely parts have no need. But God attempered the body, giving the more abundant honor to that which lacked; 25that there might be no schism in the body, but that the members might have the same care, one for another. 26And whether one member suffers, all the members suffer with it; or one is honored, all the members rejoice with it.

The Greater Gifts

27Now ye are Christ's body, and severally members thereof.

28And God, indeed, set some in the assembly: first, apostles; second, prophets; third, teachers; after that, miracles; then, gifts of healings, helps, governments, various kinds of tongues. 29Are all apostles? Are all prophets? Are all teachers? Are all workers of miracles? 30Do all have gifts of healings? Do all speak with tongues? Do all interpret? 31But desire earnestly the greater gifts; and a still more excellent way I show you.
