1 Corinthians 3
1 Corinthians 3:1 And I coulde not speake vnto you brethre as vnto spretuall: but as vnto carnall even as it were vnto babes in Christ.
Milk is fit for children.
1 Corinthians 3:2 I gave you mylke to drinke and not meate. For ye then were not stronge no nether yet are.
Strife and division, arguments of a fleshly mind.
1 Corinthians 3:3 For ye are yet carnall. As longe verely as ther is amoge you envyige stryfe and dissencio: are ye not carnall and walke after ye manner of me? 1 Corinthians 3:4 As loge as one sayth I holde of Paul and another I am of Apollo are ye not carnall? 1 Corinthians 3:5 What is Paul? What thinge is Apollo? Only miministers are they by who ye beleved even as the Lorde gave every ma grace. 1 Corinthians 3:6 I have planted: Apollo watred: but god gave increace.
He that planteth, and he that watereth, is nothing.
1 Corinthians 3:7 So then nether is he that planteth eny thinge nether he yt watreth: but god which gave the increace. 1 Corinthians 3:8 He that planteth and he that watreth are nether better then the other. Every man yet shall receave his rewarde accordynge to his laboure.
The ministers are God's fellowworkmen.
1 Corinthians 3:9 We are goddis labourers ye are goddis husbandrye ye are goddis byldynge. 1 Corinthians 3:10 Accordynge to the grace of god geven vnto me as a wyse bylder have I layde the foundacio And another bylt thero But let every ma take hede how he bildeth apo.
Christ the only foundation.
1 Corinthians 3:11 For other foundacion can no man laye then yt which is layde which is Iesus Christ. 1 Corinthians 3:12 Yf eny man bilde on this foundacion golde silver precious stones tymber haye or stoble: 1 Corinthians 3:13 every mannes worke shall appere. For the daye shall declare it and it shalbe shewed in fyre. And ye fyre shall trye euery mannes worke what it is. 1 Corinthians 3:14 Yf eny mannes worke yt he hath bylt apon byde he shall receave a rewarde. 1 Corinthians 3:15 If eny manes worke burne he shall suffre losse: but he shalbe safe him selfe: neverthelesse yet as it were thorow fyre.
Men the temples of God,
1 Corinthians 3:16 Are ye not ware that ye are the temple of god and how that the sprete of god dwelleth in you?
which must be kept holy.
1 Corinthians 3:17 Yf eny man defyle the temple of god him shall god destroye. For the temple of god is holy which temple ye are. 1 Corinthians 3:18 Let no man deceave him silfe. Yf eny man seme wyse amonge you let him be a fole in this worlde that he maye be wyse.
The wisdom of this world is foolishness with God.
1 Corinthians 3:19 For ye wisdome of this worlde is folysshnes with god. For it is writte: he compaseth the wyse in their craftynes. 1 Corinthians 3:20 And agayne God knoweth the thoughtes of the wyse that they be vayne. 1 Corinthians 3:21 Therfore let no ma reioyce in men. For all thinges are youres 1 Corinthians 3:22 whether it be Paul other Apollo other Cephas: whether it be ye worlde other lyfe other deeth whether they be present thinges or thinges to come: all are youres 1 Corinthians 3:23 and ye are Christes and Christ is goddis.
