NASB — 1 Corinthians 12 — KJV

The Use of Spiritual Gifts

1 Now concerning aspiritual [gifts], brethren, bI do not want you to be unaware. 2 aYou know that when you were pagans, [you were] bled astray to the cmute idols, however you were led. 3 Therefore I make known to you that no one speaking Iaby the Spirit of God says, “Jesus is IIbaccursed”; and no one can say, “Jesus is cLord,” except Iaby the Holy Spirit.

[3] IOr in IIGr anathema aMt 22:43; 1 Jn 4:2f; Rv 1:10 bRo 9:3 cJn 13:13; Ro 10:9

4 ¶ Now there are avarieties of gifts, but the same Spirit. 5 And there are varieties of ministries, and the same Lord. 6 There are varieties of effects, but the same aGod who works all things in all [persons]. 7 But to each one is given the manifestation of the Spirit afor the common good. 8 For to one is given the word of awisdom through the Spirit, and to another the word of bknowledge according to the same Spirit; 9 to another afaith Iby the same Spirit, and to another bgifts of IIhealing Iby the one Spirit, 10 and to another the Ieffecting of IIamiracles, and to another bprophecy, and to another the IIIcdistinguishing of spirits, to another [various] dkinds of tongues, and to another the einterpretation of tongues. 11 But one and the same Spirit works all these things, adistributing to each one individually just as He wills.

12 ¶ For even aas the body is one and [yet] has many members, and all the members of the body, though they are many, are one body, bso also is Christ. 13 For Iaby one Spirit we were all baptized into one body, whether bJews or Greeks, whether slaves or free, and we were all made to cdrink of one Spirit.

14 ¶ For athe body is not one member, but many. 15 If the foot says, “Because I am not a hand, I am not [a part] of the body,” it is not for this reason Iany the less [a part] of the body. 16 And if the ear says, “Because I am not an eye, I am not [a part] of the body,” it is not for this reason Iany the less [a part] of the body. 17 If the whole body were an eye, where would the hearing be? If the whole were hearing, where would the sense of smell be? 18 But now God has aplaced the members, each one of them, in the body, bjust as He desired. 19 If they were all one member, where would the body be? 20 But now athere are many members, but one body. 21 And the eye cannot say to the hand, “I have no need of you”; or again the head to the feet, “I have no need of you.” 22 On the contrary, Iit is much truer that the members of the body which seem to be weaker are necessary; 23 and those [members] of the body which we Ideem less honorable, IIon these we bestow more abundant honor, and our less presentable members become much more presentable, 24 whereas our more presentable members have no need [of it]. But God has [so] composed the body, giving more abundant honor to that [member] which lacked, 25 so that there may be no Idivision in the body, but [that] the members may have the same care for one another. 26 And if one member suffers, all the members suffer with it; if [one] member is Ihonored, all the members rejoice with it.

27 ¶ Now you are aChrist’s body, and bindividually members of it. 28 And God has Iaappointed in bthe church, first capostles, second dprophets, third eteachers, then IIfmiracles, then ggifts of healings, helps, hadministrations, [various] ikinds of tongues. 29 All are not apostles, are they? All are not prophets, are they? All are not teachers, are they? All are not [workers of] Imiracles, are they? 30 All do not have gifts of healings, do they? All do not speak with tongues, do they? All do not ainterpret, do they? 31 But aearnestly desire the greater gifts.

¶ And I show you a still more excellent way.

Spiritual gifts

1 ¶ Now concerning spiritual [gifts], brethren, I would not have you ignorant. 2 Ye know that ye were Gentiles, carried away unto these dumb idols, even as ye were led. 3 Wherefore I give you to understand, that no man speaking by the Spirit of God calleth Jesus accursed: and [that] no man can say that Jesus is the Lord, but by the Holy Ghost.

4 Now there are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit. 5 And there are differences of administrations, but the same Lord. 6 And there are diversities of operations, but it is the same God which worketh all in all.

And to that end are diversely bestowed:

8 For to one is given by the Spirit the word of wisdom; to another the word of knowledge by the same Spirit; 9 To another faith by the same Spirit; to another the gifts of healing by the same Spirit; 10 To another the working of miracles; to another prophecy; to another discerning of spirits; to another [divers] kinds of tongues; to another the interpretation of tongues: 11 But all these worketh that one and the selfsame Spirit, dividing to every man severally as he will.

that by the like proportion, as the members of a natural body,

12 For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of that one body, being many, are one body: so also [is] Christ. 13 For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether [we be] Jews or Gentiles, whether [we be] bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit. 14 For the body is not one member, but many. 15 If the foot shall say, Because I am not the hand, I am not of the body; is it therefore not of the body?

service,

22 Nay, much more those members of the body, which seem to be more feeble, are necessary: 23 And those [members] of the body, which we think to be less honourable, upon these we bestow more abundant honour; and our uncomely [parts] have more abundant comeliness. 24 For our comely [parts] have no need: but God hath tempered the body together, having given more abundant honour to that [part] which lacked: 25 That there should be no schism in the body; but [that] the members should have the same care one for another.

so we should do one for another, to make up the mystical body of Christ.

27 Now ye are the body of Christ, and members in particular. 28 And God hath set some in the church, first apostles, secondarily prophets, thirdly teachers, after that miracles, then gifts of healings, helps, governments, diversities of tongues. 29 [Are] all apostles? [are] all prophets? [are] all teachers? [are] all workers of miracles? 30 Have all the gifts of healing? do all speak with tongues? do all interpret? 31 But covet earnestly the best gifts: and yet shew I unto you a more excellent way.
