1 Corinthians 12:1-31
1 Now concerning spiritual gifts, brethren, I would not have you ignorant.
Περὶ δὲ τῶν πνευματικῶν ἀδελφοί οὐ θέλω ὑμᾶς ἀγνοεῖν
2 Ye know that ye were Gentiles, carried away unto these dumb idols, even as ye were led.
Οἴδατε ὅτι ἔθνη ἦτε πρὸς τὰ εἴδωλα τὰ ἄφωνα ὡς ἂν ἤγεσθε ἀπαγόμενοι
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.
διὸ γνωρίζω ὑμῖν ὅτι οὐδεὶς ἐν πνεύματι θεοῦ λαλῶν λέγει Ἀνάθεμα Ἰησοῦν, καὶ οὐδεὶς δύναται εἰπεῖν Κύριον Ἰησοῦν, εἰ μὴ ἐν πνεύματι ἁγίῳ
4 Now there are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit.
Διαιρέσεις δὲ χαρισμάτων εἰσίν τὸ δὲ αὐτὸ πνεῦμα·
5 And there are differences of administrations, but the same Lord.
καὶ διαιρέσεις διακονιῶν εἰσιν καὶ ὁ αὐτὸς κύριος·
6 And there are diversities of operations, but it is the same God which worketh all in all.
καὶ διαιρέσεις ἐνεργημάτων εἰσίν ὁ δὲ αὐτὸς ἐστίν θεός ὁ ἐνεργῶν τὰ πάντα ἐν πᾶσιν
7 But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man to profit withal.
ἑκάστῳ δὲ δίδοται ἡ φανέρωσις τοῦ πνεύματος πρὸς τὸ συμφέρον
8 For to one is given by the Spirit the word of wisdom; to another the word of knowledge by the same Spirit;
ᾧ μὲν γὰρ διὰ τοῦ πνεύματος δίδοται λόγος σοφίας ἄλλῳ δὲ λόγος γνώσεως κατὰ τὸ αὐτὸ πνεῦμα
9 To another faith by the same Spirit; to another the gifts of healing by the same Spirit;
ἑτέρῳ δὲ πίστις ἐν τῷ αὐτῷ πνεύματι ἄλλῳ δὲ χαρίσματα ἰαμάτων ἐν τῷ αὐτῷ πνεύματι
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:
ἄλλῳ δὲ ἐνεργήματα δυνάμεων ἄλλῳ δὲ προφητεία ἄλλῳ δὲ διακρίσεις πνευμάτων ἑτέρῳ δὲ γένη γλωσσῶν ἄλλῳ δὲ ἑρμηνεία γλωσσῶν·
11 But all these worketh that one and the selfsame Spirit, dividing to every man severally as he will.
πάντα δὲ ταῦτα ἐνεργεῖ τὸ ἓν καὶ τὸ αὐτὸ πνεῦμα διαιροῦν ἰδίᾳ ἑκάστῳ καθὼς βούλεται
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.
Καθάπερ γὰρ τὸ σῶμα ἕν ἐστιν καὶ μέλη ἔχει πολλὰ πάντα δὲ τὰ μέλη τοῦ σώματος τοῦ ἑνός, πολλὰ ὄντα ἕν ἐστιν σῶμα οὕτως καὶ ὁ Χριστός·
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.
καὶ γὰρ ἐν ἑνὶ πνεύματι ἡμεῖς πάντες εἰς ἓν σῶμα ἐβαπτίσθημεν εἴτε Ἰουδαῖοι εἴτε Ἕλληνες εἴτε δοῦλοι εἴτε ἐλεύθεροι καὶ πάντες εἰς ἓν πνεῦμα ἐποτίσθημεν
14 For the body is not one member, but many.
καὶ γὰρ τὸ σῶμα οὐκ ἔστιν ἓν μέλος ἀλλὰ πολλά
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?
ἐὰν εἴπῃ ὁ πούς Ὅτι οὐκ εἰμὶ χείρ οὐκ εἰμὶ ἐκ τοῦ σώματος οὐ παρὰ τοῦτο οὐκ ἔστιν ἐκ τοῦ σώματος
16 And if the ear shall say, Because I am not the eye, I am not of the body; is it therefore not of the body?
καὶ ἐὰν εἴπῃ τὸ οὖς Ὅτι οὐκ εἰμὶ ὀφθαλμός οὐκ εἰμὶ ἐκ τοῦ σώματος οὐ παρὰ τοῦτο οὐκ ἔστιν ἐκ τοῦ σώματος·
17 If the whole body were an eye, where were the hearing? If the whole were hearing, where were the smelling?
εἰ ὅλον τὸ σῶμα ὀφθαλμός ποῦ ἡ ἀκοή εἰ ὅλον ἀκοή ποῦ ἡ ὄσφρησις
18 But now hath God set the members every one of them in the body, as it hath pleased him.
νυνὶ δὲ ὁ θεὸς ἔθετο τὰ μέλη ἓν ἕκαστον αὐτῶν ἐν τῷ σώματι καθὼς ἠθέλησεν
19 And if they were all one member, where were the body?
εἰ δὲ ἦν τὰ πάντα ἓν μέλος ποῦ τὸ σῶμα
20 But now are they many members, yet but one body.
νῦν δὲ πολλὰ μὲν μέλη ἓν δὲ σῶμα
21 And the eye cannot say unto the hand, I have no need of thee: nor again the head to the feet, I have no need of you.
οὐ δύναται δὲ ὀφθαλμὸς εἰπεῖν τῇ χειρί Χρείαν σου οὐκ ἔχω ἢ πάλιν ἡ κεφαλὴ τοῖς ποσίν Χρείαν ὑμῶν οὐκ ἔχω·
22 Nay, much more those members of the body, which seem to be more feeble, are necessary:
ἀλλὰ πολλῷ μᾶλλον τὰ δοκοῦντα μέλη τοῦ σώματος ἀσθενέστερα ὑπάρχειν ἀναγκαῖά ἐστιν
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.
καὶ ἃ δοκοῦμεν ἀτιμότερα εἶναι τοῦ σώματος τούτοις τιμὴν περισσοτέραν περιτίθεμεν καὶ τὰ ἀσχήμονα ἡμῶν εὐσχημοσύνην περισσοτέραν ἔχει
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.
τὰ δὲ εὐσχήμονα ἡμῶν οὐ χρείαν ἔχει ἀλλ' ὁ θεὸς συνεκέρασεν τὸ σῶμα τῷ ὑστερουντι περισσοτέραν δοὺς τιμήν
25 That there should be no schism in the body; but that the members should have the same care one for another.
ἵνα μὴ ᾖ σχίσμα ἐν τῷ σώματι ἀλλὰ τὸ αὐτὸ ὑπὲρ ἀλλήλων μεριμνῶσιν τὰ μέλη
26 And whether one member suffer, all the members suffer with it; or one member be honoured, all the members rejoice with it.
καὶ εἴτε πάσχει ἓν μέλος συμπάσχει πάντα τὰ μέλη· εἴτε δοξάζεται ἓν μέλος συγχαίρει πάντα τὰ μέλη
27 Now ye are the body of Christ, and members in particular.
Ὑμεῖς δέ ἐστε σῶμα Χριστοῦ καὶ μέλη ἐκ μέρους
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.
καὶ οὓς μὲν ἔθετο ὁ θεὸς ἐν τῇ ἐκκλησίᾳ πρῶτον ἀποστόλους δεύτερον προφήτας τρίτον διδασκάλους ἔπειτα δυνάμεις εἶτα χαρίσματα ἰαμάτων ἀντιλήψεις, κυβερνήσεις γένη γλωσσῶν
29 Are all apostles? are all prophets? are all teachers? are all workers of miracles?
μὴ πάντες ἀπόστολοι μὴ πάντες προφῆται μὴ πάντες διδάσκαλοι μὴ πάντες δυνάμεις
30 Have all the gifts of healing? do all speak with tongues? do all interpret?
μὴ πάντες χαρίσματα ἔχουσιν ἰαμάτων μὴ πάντες γλώσσαις λαλοῦσιν μὴ πάντες διερμηνεύουσιν
31 But covet earnestly the best gifts: and yet shew I unto you a more excellent way.
ζηλοῦτε δὲ τὰ χαρίσματα τὰ κρείττονα Καὶ ἔτι καθ' ὑπερβολὴν ὁδὸν ὑμῖν δείκνυμι
