1 Corinthians 12
1 Corinthians 12:1 In spirituall thinges brethren I wolde not have you ignoraunt. 1 Corinthians 12:2 Ye knowe that ye were gentyls and went youre wayes vnto domme ydoles even as ye were ledde. 1 Corinthians 12:3 Wherfore I declare vnto you that no man speakynge in the sprete of god defieth Iesus. Also no man can saye that Iesus is the lorde: but by the holy goost.
1 Corinthians 12:4 Ther are diversities of gyftes verely yet but one sprete. 1 Corinthians 12:5 And ther are differences of administracions and yet but one lorde. 1 Corinthians 12:6 And ther are divers maners of operacions and yet but one God which worketh all thinges that are wrought in all creatures.
yet all to profit withal.
1 Corinthians 12:7 The gyftes of ye sprete are geven to every man to proffit ye congregacion.
And to that end are diversely bestowed:
1 Corinthians 12:8 To one is geven thorow the spirite the vtteraunce of wisdome? To another is geven the vtteraunce of knowledge by ye same sprete. 1 Corinthians 12:9 To another is geuen fayth by ye same sprete. To another ye gyftes of healynge by the same sprete. 1 Corinthians 12:10 To another power to do myracles. To another prophesie? To another iudgement of spretes. To another divers tonges. To another the interpretacion of toges. 1 Corinthians 12:11 And these all worketh eve ye silfe same sprete devydynge to every man severall gyftes even as he will.
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 mebres and all the membres of one body though they be many yet are but one body: even so is Christ. 1 Corinthians 12:13 For in one sprete are we all baptysed to make one body whether we be Iewes or getyls whether we be bonde or fre: and have all dronke of one sprete. 1 Corinthians 12:14 For the body is not one member but many. 1 Corinthians 12:15 Yf the fote saye: I am not the honde therfore I am not of the body: is he therfore not of ye body:
tend all to the mutual decency,
1 Corinthians 12:16 And if ye eare saye I am not the eye: therfore 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 now hath god disposed the membres every one of them in the body at his awne pleasure. 1 Corinthians 12:19 If they were all one member: where were the body? 1 Corinthians 12:20 Now are ther many membres yet but one body. 1 Corinthians 12:21 And the eye can not saye vnto the honde I have no nede of the: nor ye heed also to the fete. I have no nede of you.
1 Corinthians 12:22 Ye rather a greate deale those mebres of the body which seme to be most feble are most necessary. 1 Corinthians 12:23 And apo those mebres of yt body which we thinke lest honest put we most honestie on. And oure vngodly parties have most beauty on. 1 Corinthians 12:24 For oure honest members nede it not. But God hath so disposed the body ad hath geven most honoure to that parte which laked 1 Corinthians 12:25 lest there shuld be eny stryfe in the body: but that the members shuld indifferetly care one for another.
and succour of the same body;
1 Corinthians 12:26 And yf one member suffer all suffer with him: yf one member be had in honoure all members 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 members one of another. 1 Corinthians 12:28 And God hath also ordeyned in the congregacion fyrst the Apostels secodarely prophetes thyrdly teachers then the that do miracles: after that the gyftes of healynge helpers governers diversite of tonges. 1 Corinthians 12:29 Are all Apostles? Are all Prophetes? Are all teachers? Are all doars of miracles? 1 Corinthians 12:30 Have all the gyftes of healinge? Do all speake wt tonges? Do all interprete? 1 Corinthians 12:31 Covet after ye best giftes. Amd yet shewe I vnto you a moare excellent waye.
