Paul, called [to be] an apostle of Jesus Christ through the will of God, and Sosthenes [our] brother, (1:1)

Unto the church of God which is at Corinth, to them that are sanctified in Christ Jesus, called [to be] saints, with all that in every place call upon the name of Jesus Christ our Lord, both theirs and ours: (1:2)

Grace [be] unto you, and peace, from God our Father, and [from] the Lord Jesus Christ (1:3)

I thank my God always on your behalf, for the grace of God which is given you by Jesus Christ; (1:4)

That in every thing ye are enriched by him, in all utterance, and [in] all knowledge; (1:5)

Even as the testimony of Christ was confirmed in you: (1:6)

So that ye come behind in no gift; waiting for the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ: (1:7)

Who shall also confirm you unto the end, [that ye may be] blameless in the day of our Lord Jesus Christ (1:8)

God [is] faithful, by whom ye were called unto the fellowship of his Son Jesus Christ our Lord (1:9)

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. (1:10) 66

For it hath been declared unto me of you, my brethren, by them [which are of the house] of Chloe, that there are contentions among you (1:11)

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 (1:12)

Is Christ divided? was Paul crucified for you? or were ye baptized in the name of Paul? (1:13)

I thank God that I baptized none of you, but Crispus and Gaius; (1:14)

Lest any should say that I had baptized in mine own name (1:15)

And I baptized also the household of Stephanas: besides, I know not whether I baptized any other (1:16)

For Christ sent me not to baptize, but to preach the gospel: not with wisdom of words, lest the cross of Christ should be made of none effect (1:17)

For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God (1:18)

For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent (1:19)

Where [is] the wise? where [is] the scribe? where [is] the disputer of this world? hath not God made foolish the wisdom of this world? (1:20)

For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe (1:21)

For the Jews require a sign, and the Greeks seek after wisdom: (1:22)

But we preach Christ crucified, unto the Jews a stumblingblock, and unto the Greeks foolishness; (1:23)

But unto them which are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God (1:24)

Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the weakness of God is stronger than men (1:25)

For ye see your calling, brethren, how that not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, [are called]: (1:26)

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; (1:27)

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: (1:28)

That no flesh should glory in his presence (1:29)

But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption: (1:30)

That, according as it is written, He that glorieth, let him glory in the Lord (1:31)
