1 Corinthians 12
1 Corinthians 12:1 Concernynge spirituall thinges (brethren) I wolde not haue you ignoraunt. 1 Corinthians 12:2 Ye knowe þt ye were gentyls, & went youre wayes vnto domme ymages, euen as ye were led. 1 Corinthians 12:3 Wherfore I declare vnto you, that no man speakyng by the sprete of God, defyeth Iesus. Also no man can saye that Iesus is the Lorde, but by the holy ghost.
1 Corinthians 12:4 Ther are diuersites of gyftes, yet but one sprete. 1 Corinthians 12:5 And ther are differences of administracyons, and yet but one Lorde. 1 Corinthians 12:6 And ther are dyuers maners of operacyons, and yet but one God whych worcketh all in all.
yet all to profit withal.
1 Corinthians 12:7 The gyfte of the sprete is geuen to euery man, to edifye withall,
And to that end are diversely bestowed:
1 Corinthians 12:8 For to one is geuen thorow the spirite the vtteraunce of wisdome. To another is geuen the vttraunce of knowledge by the same sprete. 1 Corinthians 12:9 To another is geuen fayth, by the same sprete. To another the gyftes of healinge by the same sprete. 1 Corinthians 12:10 To another power to do miracles. To another prophesye. To another iudgement to discerne spretes. To another diuers tonges. To another the interpretacyon of tonges: 1 Corinthians 12:11 But these all worketh euen the selfe same sprete, diuidynge to euery man a seuerall gyfte, euen as he wyll.
that by the like proportion, as the members of a natural body,
1 Corinthians 12:12 For as the body is one, and hath many membres, and all the membres of one body though they be many, yet are but one bodye, euen so is Christ. 1 Corinthians 12:13 For by one sprete are we all baptysed to make one body, whether we be Iewes or Gentyls, whether we be bonde or fre, and haue all droncke of one sprete. 1 Corinthians 12:14 For the body is not one member, but many. 1 Corinthians 12:15 If the fote saye: I am not the hande, I am not of the body: is he therfore not of the body?
tend all to the mutual decency,
1 Corinthians 12:16 And yf the eare saye, I am not the eye, I am not of the body: is he therfore not of the body? 1 Corinthians 12:17 If all the body were an eye, where were then the eare? If all were hearynge: where were the smellynge? 1 Corinthians 12:18 But nowe hath God set the membres euery one seuerally in the body as it hath pleased him. 1 Corinthians 12:19 If they were all one member: where were þe bodye? 1 Corinthians 12:20 Nowe are there many membres, yet but one body. 1 Corinthians 12:21 And the eye can not saye vnto the hande: I haue no nede of the. Agayne, the heed can not saye to the fete: I haue no nede of you.
1 Corinthians 12:22 Yee rather a great deale those membres of the body which seme to be more feble, are necessary. 1 Corinthians 12:23 And vpon those membres of the body which we thinke leest honest, put we more honestye on. And oure vngoodlye partes haue more beautye on. 1 Corinthians 12:24 For oure honest membres nede it not: But God hath so disposed the body, & hath geuen the more honoure to that parte whych lacked, 1 Corinthians 12:25 lest there shulde be eny stryfe in the body: but that the membres shuld indifferently care one for another. And yf one member suffer, all suffer with him.
and succour of the same body;
1 Corinthians 12:26 yf one member be had in honour, all membres be glad also.
so we should do one for another, to make up the mystical body of Christ.
1 Corinthians 12:27 Ye are the body of Christ, and membres one of another. 1 Corinthians 12:28 And God hath also ordeyned in the congregacyon, fyrst Apostles, secondarely prophetes, thrydly teachers, then them that do myracles: after that, the gyftes of healyng, helpers, gouerners, diuersitye of tonges. 1 Corinthians 12:29 Are all Apostles? Are all Prophetes? Are all teachers? Are all doars of miracles? 1 Corinthians 12:30 Haue all þe gyftes of healinge? Do all speake with tonges? Do all interprete? 1 Corinthians 12:31 Couet after the best gyftes. And yet shewe I vnto you a more excellent waye.
