Rotherham's Emphasized Bible

1 Corinthians 3

1 Corinthians 3:1 I, therefore, brethren, have not been able to speak unto you, as unto men of the Spirit, but as unto men of the flesh—as unto babes in Christ:—

Milk is fit for children.

1 Corinthians 3:2 With milk, have I fed you, not, with meat; for, not yet, have ye been able;—nay! not [yet] even now, are ye able,

Strife and division, arguments of a fleshly mind.

1 Corinthians 3:3 For ye are yet fleshly. For, whereas there are, among you, jealousy and strife, are ye not, fleshly, and, after the manner of men, walking? 1 Corinthians 3:4 For, as soon as one beginneth to say—I, indeed, am of Paul! and another—I, of Apollos! are ye not, men? 1 Corinthians 3:5 What then is Apollos? and, what is Paul? ministers through whom ye believed, and, each, as the Lord, gave to him. 1 Corinthians 3:6 I, planted, Apollos, watered,—but, God, caused to, grow.

He that planteth, and he that watereth, is nothing.

1 Corinthians 3:7 So that, [neither] is he that planteth anything, nor, he that watereth,—but, God, who causeth to, grow. 1 Corinthians 3:8 Moreover, he that planteth and he that watereth, are one:—howbeit, each one, his own reward, shall receive,—according to his own labour.

The ministers are God's fellowworkmen.

1 Corinthians 3:9 For we are, God's, fellow-workmen: ye are, God's, farm, God's building. 1 Corinthians 3:10 According to the favour of God which hath been given unto me, as a wise master-builder, I laid a foundation, whereas, another, is building thereon; but, let each one, see, how he buildeth thereon;

Christ the only foundation.

1 Corinthians 3:11 For, other foundation, can, no one, lay, than that which is lying, which is, Jesus Christ. 1 Corinthians 3:12 But, if anyone is building, upon the foundation—gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, straw, 1 Corinthians 3:13 Each one's work, shall be made, manifest; for, the day, will make it plain, because, by fire, is it to be revealed,—and, each one's work, of what sort it is, the fire itself will prove:— 1 Corinthians 3:14 If, anyone's work, shall abide, which he built, a reward, shall he receive,— 1 Corinthians 3:15 If, anyone's work, shall be burnt up, he shall suffer loss, but shall, himself, be saved—though, thus, as through fire.

Men the temples of God,

1 Corinthians 3:16 Know ye not that ye are a shrine of God, and that the Spirit of God within you doth dwell?

which must be kept holy.

1 Corinthians 3:17 If anyone doth mar the shrine of God, God, will mar him; for the shrine of God is holy,—and such are ye. 1 Corinthians 3:18 Let no one be deceiving himself:—if anyone imagineth himself to be wise among you, in this age, let him become foolish, that he may become wise;

The wisdom of this world is foolishness with God.

1 Corinthians 3:19 For, the wisdom of this world, is, foolishness with God; for it is written—He that taketh the wise in their knavery,— 1 Corinthians 3:20 And again—The Lord taketh note of the speculations of the wise, that they are vain. 1 Corinthians 3:21 So then, let, no one, be boasting in men; for, all things, are yours— 1 Corinthians 3:22 Whether Paul, or Apollos, or Cephas, or the world, or life, or death, or things present, or things to come, all, are, yours, 1 Corinthians 3:23 And, ye, are Christ's,—and, Christ, is, God's.
