1 Corinthians 16:11  2 Corinthians 1:11

11 Let no one therefore adespise him, but bsend him forward in cpeace that he may come to me; for I am awaiting him with the brothers.

12 And 1concerning our brother aApollos, 2I urged him many times to come to you with the brothers; yet it was 2not at all his desire to come now, but he bwill come when he has opportunity.

13 aWatch, 1bstand firm in the 2cfaith, be 3dfull-grown men, be estrong.

14 Let all your matters be done in 1alove.

15 Now I exhort you, brothers: You know the household of aStephanas, that it is the bfirstfruits of cAchaia, and they have set themselves to minister to the dsaints;

16 You also be asubject to such ones, and to everyone co-working and blaboring.

17 Now I rejoice at the coming of Stephanas and Fortunatus and Achaicus, because these have afilled up the lack caused by your absence;

18 For they 1arefreshed my 2bspirit and yours. cAcknowledge therefore such ones.

19 The achurches of bAsia greet you. cAquila and Prisca greet you much in the Lord, with the 1church, which is in their dhouse.

20 All the brothers greet you. Greet one another with a holy akiss.

21 1The greeting in my own ahand — Paul.

22 If anyone does not alove the Lord, let him be 1baccursed! 2The cLord comes!

23 The 1agrace of the Lord Jesus be with you.

24 My 1alove in Christ Jesus be with you all.


1 Paul, an aapostle of Christ Jesus through the 1will of God, and bTimothy the brother, to the 2cchurch of God which is 3in Corinth, 4with all the saints who are in the whole of 5dAchaia:

2 aGrace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.

3 aBlessed be the bGod and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of 1compassions and God of all 2ccomfort;

4 Who acomforts us in all our baffliction that we may be 1able to comfort those who are in every affliction through the ccomforting with which we ourselves are comforted by God.

5 For even as the 1asufferings of 2the Christ abound unto us, so through 2the Christ our comfort also abounds.

6 But whether we are aafflicted, it is for your comforting and salvation; or whether we are comforted, it is for your comforting, which operates in the endurance of the same sufferings which we also suffer.

7 And our hope for you is firm, knowing that as you are partakers of the asufferings, so also you are of the comfort.

8 For we do not want you to be aignorant, brothers, of our affliction which befell us in bAsia, that we were excessively 1cburdened, beyond ourpower, so that we 2ddespaired even of 3living.

9 1Indeed we ourselves had the 2response of adeath in ourselves, that we should bnot base our cconfidence on ourselves but don 3God, who eraises the dead;

10 Who has adelivered us out of so great a death, and 1will deliver us; in whom we have bhoped that He will also yet deliver us,

11 If you also 1help in this by apetition on our behalf, that for the 2gift to us through many, bthanks may be given by many 3persons on our behalf.

1 Corinthians 15:45  1 Corinthians 16:10

45 So also it is written, “The first man, aAdam, became a bliving 1soul”; the last Adam became a clife-giving 1Spirit.

46 But 1the spiritual is not first but 2the soulish, then the spiritual:

47 The first man is 1out of the aearth, earthy; the 2second man is 3out of bheaven.

48 As 1the earthy is, such are 2they also that are earthy; and as 3the heavenly is, such are 4they also that are aheavenly.

49 And even as we have borne the 1aimage of the earthy, we will also bear the 1bimage of the heavenly.

50 Now this I say, brothers, that 1aflesh and blood cannot inherit the bkingdom of God, neither does ccorruption inherit dincorruption.

51 Behold, I tell you a1mystery: We will not all 2bsleep, but we will all be 3cchanged,

52 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the 1last atrumpet; for the trumpet will sound, and the 2dead will be braised incorruptible, and 3we will be changed.

53 For 1this acorruptible must put on incorruption, and 1this bmortal must put on immortality.

54 And 1when this corruptible will put on incorruption and this mortal will put on immortality, then the word which is written will come to pass, a“Death has been bswallowed up 2unto 3cvictory.”

55 1Where, aO death, is your victory? Where, O death, is your bsting?

56 The 1sting of adeath is sin, and the 2power of bsin is the claw.

57 But athanks be to God who gives us the 1bvictory through our Lord Jesus Christ.

58 Therefore, my beloved brothers, be 1asteadfast, immovable, always abounding in the 2bwork of the Lord, knowing that your 3clabor is not din vain in the Lord.


1 Now concerning the 1acollection for the saints, 2just as I bdirected the cchurches of Galatia, so you also do.

2 On the 1afirst day of the week each one of you should lay aside in store to himself whatever he may have been prospered, that no collections be made when I come.

3 And when I arrive, whomever you approve, I will asend them with letters to carry your 1gift to bJerusalem;

4 And if it is fitting for me also to go, they will go with me.

5 Now I will acome to you when I pass through bMacedonia, for I will pass through Macedonia.

6 And perhaps I will stay with you, or even spend the awinter, that you may bsend me forward wherever I may go.

7 For I do not wish to see you now just in apassing, for I am hoping to remain with you for some time, if the Lord bpermits.

8 But I will remain in 1aEphesus until bPentecost,

9 For a adoor is opened to me, great and efficacious, and there are many bopposers.

10 Now if aTimothy comes, see that he is with you without fear; for he is working the bwork of the Lord, even as I am.

1 Corinthians 15:20  1 Corinthians 15:44

20 1But now Christ has been araised from the dead, the 2bfirstfruits of those who have fallen asleep.

21 For since through 1aman came death, through 2bman also came the cresurrection of the dead.

22 For just as in aAdam all 1die, so also in bChrist all will be 2cmade alive.

23 But each one in his own order: the 1afirstfruits, Christ; then 2bthose who are Christ’s at His ccoming;

24 Then the 1end, 2when He 3delivers up the akingdom to His God and Father, 2once He has abolished all brule and all authority and power.

25 For He must 1areign until God bputs all His enemies under His feet.

26 aDeath, the last enemy, is 1being abolished.

27 For 1He has asubjected all things under 2His feet. But when 1He says that all things are subjected, it is evident that all things are except 1Him who has subjected all things to 2Him.

28 And when all things have been asubjected to 1Him, then the 2Son Himself also will be subjected to 3Him who has subjected all things to 1Him, that bGod may be 4call in all.

29 1Otherwise what shall they who are 2baptized for the dead do? If the dead are actually anot raised, why then are they baptized for them?

30 Why also do we brave adanger every hour?

31 I protest by the 1aboasting in you, brothers, which I have 2in Christ Jesus our Lord, I 1bdie daily.

32 If 1after the manner of men I fought with 2wild beasts at aEphesus, what does it profit me? If the dead are bnot raised, 3let us ceat and drink, for tomorrow we die.

33 Do not be adeceived: 1Evil 2bcompanionships ccorrupt good morals.

34 1aAwake from the drunken stupor righteously and do not sin, for some of you 2are bignorant of God. I speak to your cshame.

35 But someone will say, How are the dead raised? And with what kind of body do they come?

36 Foolish man, 1what you sow is not made alive unless it adies;

37 And what you sow, you do not sow the body that will be, but a bare grain, perhaps of wheat or of some other of the rest.

38 But God gives it a 1body even as He willed, and to each of the seeds its own 1body.

39 1All aflesh is not the same flesh, but one is of bmen, and another flesh is of ccattle, and another is of dbirds, and another is of fish.

40 There are also heavenly bodies and earthly bodies; but the glory of the heavenly is one thing, and that of the earthly is another.

41 There is another glory of the asun, and another glory of the bmoon, and another glory of the cstars; for star differs from star in glory.

42 So aalso is the bresurrection of the dead. It is sown in ccorruption, it is draised in incorruption;

43 It is sown in dishonor, it is raised in aglory; it is sown in weakness, it is raised in power;

44 It is sown a 1asoulish body, it is raised a 1bspiritual cbody. If there is a soulish body, there is also a spiritual one.

1 Corinthians 14:33  1 Corinthians 15:19

33 For God is not a God of aconfusion but of 1peace. 2As in ball the 3churches of the csaints,

34 The awomen should be silent 1bin the churches, for they are not permitted to 2speak; but they should be csubject, even as the 3dlaw also says.

35 But if they desire to learn anything, they should ask their own husbands at home; for it is a shame for a woman to speak in the church.

36 Or was it from you that the word of God went forth? Or 1did it reach only to you?

37 If anyone thinks he is a 1aprophet or bspiritual, let him fully know the things which I write to you, that they are the 2ccommandment of the Lord.

38 But if anyone aignores this, let him ignore it.

39 So then, my brothers, 1adesire earnestly the bprophesying, and 1do not forbid the speaking in tongues.

40 But all things must be done 1becomingly and in 1aorder.



1 Now I make known to you, brothers, the 1agospel which I announced to you, which also you received, in which also you 2bstand,

2 Through which also you are 1being asaved, if you bhold fast the word which I announced to you as the gospel, unless you have believed cin vain.

3 For I delivered to you, first of all, that which also I areceived, that 1Christ bdied for our csins according to the 2dScriptures;

4 And that He was aburied, and that He has been braised on the cthird day according to the dScriptures;

5 And that He 1appeared to aCephas, then to the btwelve;

6 Then He appeared to over five hundred brothers at one time, of whom the majority remain until now, but some have fallen asleep;

7 Then He appeared to James, then to all the apostles;

8 And last of all He appeared to ame also, as it were to one born prematurely.

9 For I am the aleast of the apostles, who am not fit to be called an apostle, because I bpersecuted the cchurch of God.

10 But by the 1agrace of God I am what I am; and His bgrace unto me did not turn out to be cin vain, but, on the contrary, I dlabored more abundantly than all of them, yet 2not I but the grace of God which is with me.

11 Therefore whether it is I or they, so we preach and so you have believed.

12 But if Christ is proclaimed that He has been araised from the dead, how is it that some among you say that there is 1no resurrection of the dead?

13 But if there is no resurrection of the dead, neither has Christ been raised.

14 And if Christ has not been raised, then our proclamation is 1avain; your faith is 1bvain also.

15 And also we are found to be false witnesses of God because we have testified concerning God that He araised Christ, whom He did not raise, if indeed the dead are not raised.

16 For if the dead are not raised, neither has Christ been raised.

17 And if Christ has not been raised, your faith is 1futile; you are 2still in your asins.

18 Then also those who have 1afallen asleep in Christ have 2perished.

19 If it is 1only that we have ahoped in Christ in this life, we are of all men most miserable.

1 Corinthians 14:12  1 Corinthians 14:32

12 So also you, since you are zealous of 1aspirits, seek that you may 2excel for the 3bbuilding up of the church.

13 Therefore let him who speaks in a tongue pray that he may ainterpret.

14 For if I pray in a tongue, my 1aspirit prays, but my 1bmind is unfruitful.

15 What then? I will pray with the aspirit, and I will pray 1also 2with the mind; I will bsing with the spirit, and I will csing 1also 2with the mind.

16 Otherwise if you abless with the spirit, how shall he who fills the place of the 1unlearned in tongues say the 2bAmen at your giving of cthanks, since he does not know what you are saying?

17 For you give thanks well, but the other is not 1abuilt up.

18 I thank God, I speak in tongues more than all of you,

19 But in the church I would rather aspeak 1five words 2with my mind, that I might instruct others also, than 1ten thousand words in a tongue.

20 Brothers, do not be 1achildren in your 2understanding, but in bmalice be cbabes and in your 2understanding be 3dfull-grown.

21 In the 1alaw it is written, 2b“By those of other tongues and with the lips of others I will speak to this people; even so they will not listen to Me, says the Lord.”

22 So then tongues are for a 1sign, not to those who believe but to the unbelievers; but prophecy is for a sign not to the unbelievers but to those who believe.

23 If therefore the whole church acomes together in one place, and 1all speak in tongues, and some unlearned in tongues or unbelievers enter, will they not say that you are 2binsane?

24 But if 1aall prophesy and some unbeliever or unlearned person enters, he is 2convicted by all, he is 2examined by all;

25 The secrets of his aheart become manifest; and so bfalling on his face, he will worship 1God, declaring that indeed 1God is camong you.

26 What then, brothers? Whenever you acome together, each one 1has a bpsalm, has a cteaching, has a drevelation, has a etongue, has an finterpretation. Let all things be done for 2gbuilding up.

27 If anyone speaks in a tongue, it should be by atwo, or at the most three, and in turn, and one should interpret;

28 But if there is no interpreter, he should be silent ain the 1church, and speak to himself and to God.

29 And as to prophets, atwo or three should speak, and the others 1bdiscern.

30 But if something is revealed to another sitting by, the first should be silent.

31 For 1you can aall prophesy one by one that all may learn and all may be 2encouraged.

32 And the 1aspirits of prophets are bsubject to prophets;
