1st Corinthians 1

1
CHAPTER 1
1Paul, called apostle of Jesus Christ, by the will of God, and Sosthenes, brother,
2to the church of God that is at Corinth, to them that be hallowed in Christ Jesus, and called saints, with all that inwardly call [or in-call] the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, in each place of them and of ours,
3grace to you and peace of God, our Father, and of the Lord Jesus Christ.
4I do thankings to my God ever-more for you, in the grace of God that is given to you in Christ Jesus.
5For in all things ye be made rich in him, in each word, and in each knowing, [or science],
6as the witnessing of Christ is confirmed in you;
7so that nothing fail to you in any grace, that abide the showing [or the revelation] of our Lord Jesus Christ;
8which also shall confirm you into the end without crime, [or great sin], in the day of the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.
9A true God [or Forsooth God is true], by whom ye be called into the fellowship of his Son Jesus Christ our Lord.
10But, brethren, I beseech you, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye all say the same thing, and that dissensions, [or schisms, or divisions, or discords], be not among you; but be ye perfect in the same wit, and in the same knowing.
11For, my brethren, it is told to me of them that be at Chloe’s, that strives be among you.
12And I say that, that each of you saith, For I am of Paul, and I am of Apollos, and I am of Cephas, [that is, Peter], but I am of Christ.
13Whether Christ is parted? whether Paul was crucified for you, either ye be baptized in the name of Paul?
14I do thankings to my God, that I baptized none of you, but Crispus and Gaius;
15lest any man say, that ye be baptized in my name.
16And I baptized also the house of Stephanas, but I know not, that I baptized any other.
17For Christ sent me not to baptize, but to preach the gospel [or to evangelize]; not in wisdom of word, that the cross of Christ be not voided away.
18For the word of the cross is folly to them that perish; but to them that be made safe, that is to say, to us, it is the virtue of God.
19For it is written, I shall destroy the wisdom of wise men, and I shall reprove the prudence of prudent men.
20Where is the wise man? where is the wise lawyer? [or where is the writer, or the man of law?] where is the purchaser of this world? Whether God hath not made the wisdom of this world fond? [or foolish?]
21For the world, in wisdom of God, knew not God by wisdom, [or For why for in the wisdom of God, the world knew not God by wisdom], it pleased to God, by [the] folly of preaching, to make them safe that believed.
22For Jews seek signs, and Greeks seek wisdom;
23but we preach Christ crucified, to the Jews cause of stumbling, and to heathen men folly;
24but to those Jews and Greeks that be called, we preach Christ the virtue of God, and the wisdom of God.
25For that that is folly thing of God, is wiser than men; and that that is the feeble, [or frail], thing of God, is stronger than men.
26But, brethren, see ye your calling; for not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble.
27But God chose those things that be fond [or foolish] of the world, to confound wise men; and God chose the feeble, [or frail], things of the world, to confound the strong things;
28and God chose the unnoble things and despisable things of the world, and those things that be not, to destroy those things that be;
29that each man have not glory in his sight.
30But of him ye be in Christ Jesus, which is made of God to us wisdom, and rightwiseness, and holiness, and again-buying;
31that, as it is written, He that glorieth, have glory in the Lord.

1 Corinthians 1

1
1Paul, called to be an apostle of Jesus Christ through the will of God, and Sosthenes our brother, 2unto 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 their's and our's: 3grace be unto you, and peace, from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ.
4I thank my God always on your behalf, for the grace of God which is given you by Jesus Christ; 5that in every thing ye are enriched by him, in all utterance, and in all knowledge; 6even as the testimony of Christ was confirmed in you: 7so that ye come behind in no gift; waiting for the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ: 8who shall also confirm you unto the end, that ye may be blameless in the day of our Lord Jesus Christ. 9God is faithful, by whom ye were called unto the fellowship of his Son Jesus Christ our Lord.
Divisions in the Church
10Now 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. 11For 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. 12Now 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. 13Is Christ divided? was Paul crucified for you? or were ye baptized in the name of Paul? 14I thank God that I baptized none of you, but Crispus and Gaius; 15lest any should say that I had baptized in mine own name. 16And I baptized also the household of Stephanas: besides, I know not whether I baptized any other. 17For 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.
18For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God. 19For it is written,
I will destroy the wisdom of the wise,
And will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent.
20Where is the wise? where is the scribe? where is the disputer of this world? hath not God made foolish the wisdom of this world?
21For 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. 22For the Jews require a sign, and the Greeks seek after wisdom: 23but we preach Christ crucified, unto the Jews a stumblingblock, and unto the Greeks foolishness; 24but unto them which are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God. 25Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the weakness of God is stronger than men.
26For ye see your calling, brethren, how that not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called: 27but 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; 28and 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: 29that no flesh should glory in his presence. 30But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption: 31that, according as it is written, He that glorieth, let him glory in the Lord.
