1 Corinthians 12:24

but our presentable members do not need this. Instead, God has blended together the body, giving greater honor to the lesser member,

NIV ©

while our presentable parts need no special treatment. But God has combined the members of the body and has given greater honour to the parts that lacked it,

NASB ©

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,

NLT ©

while other parts do not require this special care. So God has put the body together in such a way that extra honor and care are given to those parts that have less dignity.

MSG ©

If anything, you have more concern for the lower parts than the higher. If you had to choose, wouldn't you prefer good digestion to full-bodied hair?

BBE ©

But those parts of the body which are beautiful have no need of such care: and so the body has been joined together by God in such a way as to give more honour to those parts which had need of it;

NRSV ©

whereas our more respectable members do not need this. But God has so arranged the body, giving the greater honor to the inferior member,

NKJV ©

but our presentable parts have no need. But God composed the body, having given greater honor to that part which lacks it,
