1 Corinthians, Chapter 3

3:1 And I, brothers, could not speak to you+ as to spiritual, but as to carnal, as to juveniles in Christ.
3:2 I fed you+ with milk, not with meat; for you+ were not yet able [to bear it]: no, not even now are you+ able;
3:3 for you+ are yet carnal: for whereas there is among you+ jealousy and strife, are you+ not carnal, and do you+ not walk after the manner of men?
3:4 For when one says, I am of Paul; and another, I am of Apollos; are you+ not men?
3:5 What then is Apollos? And what is Paul? Servants through whom you+ believed; and to each as the Lord gave.
3:6 I planted, Apollos watered; but God gave the increase.
3:7 So then neither is he who plants anything, neither he who waters; but God who gives the increase.
3:8 Now he who plants and he who waters are one: but each will receive his own reward according to his own labor.
3:9 For we are God's coworkers: you+ are God's husbandry, God's building.
3:10 According to the grace of God which was given to me, as a wise masterbuilder I laid a foundation; and another builds on it. But let each take heed how he builds on it.
3:11 For another foundation can no man lay than that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ.
3:12 But if any man builds on the foundation gold, silver, costly stones, wood, hay, stubble;
3:13 each man's work will be made manifest: for the day will declare it, because it is revealed in fire; and the fire itself will prove each man's work of what sort it is.
3:14 If any man's work that he built on it stays, he will receive a reward.
3:15 If any man's work will be burned, he will suffer loss: but he himself will be saved; yet so as through fire.
3:16 Don't you+ know that you+ are a temple of God, and [that] the Spirit of God dwells in you+?
3:17 If any man destroys the temple of God, him will God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, and such are you+.
3:18 Let no man deceive himself. If any man thinks that he is wise among you+ in this age, let him become a fool, that he may become wise.
3:19 For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, He who takes the wise in their craftiness:
3:20 and again, The Lord knows the reasonings of the wise, that they are useless.
3:21 Therefore let no one glory in men. For all things are yours+;
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+;
3:23 and you+ are Christ's; and Christ is God's.
