1 Corinthians 14

Follow
<1377> (5720)
after charity
<26>_,
and
<1161>
desire
<2206> (5720)
spiritual
<4152>
[gifts], but
<1161>
rather
<3123>
that
<2443>
ye may prophesy
<4395> (5725)_.
For
<1063>
he that speaketh
<2980> (5723)
in an [unknown] tongue
<1100>
speaketh
<2980> (5719)
not
<3756>
unto men
<444>_,
but
<235>
unto God
<2316>_:
for
<1063>
no man
<3762>
understandeth
<191> (5719)
[him]; howbeit
<1161>
in the spirit
<4151>
he speaketh
<2980> (5719)
mysteries
<3466>_.
{understandeth: Gr. heareth}
But
<1161>
he that prophesieth
<4395> (5723)
speaketh
<2980> (5719)
unto men
<444>
[to] edification
<3619>_,
and
<2532>
exhortation
<3874>_,
and
<2532>
comfort
<3889>_.
He that speaketh
<2980> (5723)
in an [unknown] tongue
<1100>
edifieth
<3618> (5719)
himself
<1438>_;
but
<1161>
he that prophesieth
<4395> (5723)
edifieth
<3618> (5719)
the church
<1577>_.
<1161>@ I would
<2309> (5719)
that ye
<5209>
all
<3956>
spake
<2980> (5721)
with tongues
<1100>_,
but
<1161>
rather
<3123>
that
<2443>
ye prophesied
<4395> (5725)_:
for
<1063>
greater
<3187>
[is] he that prophesieth
<4395> (5723)
than
<2228>
he that speaketh
<2980> (5723)
with tongues
<1100>_,
except
<1622> <1508>
he interpret
<1329> (5725)_,
that
<2443>
the church
<1577>
may receive
<2983> (5632)
edifying
<3619>_.
<1161>@ Now
<3570>_,
brethren
<80>_,
if
<1437>
I come
<2064> (5632)
unto
<4314>
you
<5209>
speaking
<2980> (5723)
with tongues
<1100>_,
what
<5101>
shall I profit
<5623> (5692)
you
<5209>_,
except
<3362>
I shall speak
<2980> (5661)
to you
<5213>
either
<2228>
by
<1722>
revelation
<602>_,
or
<2228>
by
<1722>
knowledge
<1108>_,
or
<2228>
by
<1722>
prophesying
<4394>_,
or
<2228>
by
<1722>
doctrine
<1322>_?
And even
<3676>
things without life
<895>
giving
<1325> (5723)
sound
<5456>_,
whether
<1535>
pipe
<836>
or
<1535>
harp
<2788>_,
except
<3362>
they give
<1325> (5632)
a distinction
<1293>
in the sounds
<5353>_,
how
<4459>
shall it be known
<1097> (5701)
what is piped
<832> (5746)
or
<2228>
harped
<2789> (5746)_?
{sounds: or, tunes}
For
<1063> <2532>
if
<1437>
the trumpet
<4536>
give
<1325> (5632)
an uncertain
<82>
sound
<5456>_,
who
<5101>
shall prepare himself
<3903> (5695)
to
<1519>
the battle
<4171>_?
So
<3779>
likewise
<2532>
ye
<5210>_,
except
<3362>
ye utter
<1325> (5632)
by
<1223>
the tongue
<1100>
words
<3056>
easy to be understood
<2154>_,
how
<4459>
shall it be known
<1097> (5701)
what is spoken
<2980> (5746)_?
for
<1063>
ye shall
<2071> (5704)
speak
<2980> (5723)
into
<1519>
the air
<109>_.
{easy...: Gr. significant}
<1487>@ There are
<2076> (5748)_,
it may be
<5177> (5630)_,
so many
<5118>
kinds
<1085>
of voices
<5456>
in
<1722>
the world
<2889>_,
and
<2532>
none of them
<3762>
[is] without signification
<880> (5625) <846>_.
Therefore
<3767>
if
<3362> (0)
I know
<1492> (5762)
not
<3362>
the meaning
<1411>
of the voice
<5456>_,
I shall be
<2071> (5704)
unto him that speaketh
<2980> (5723)
a barbarian
<915>_,
and
<2532>
he that speaketh
<2980> (5723)
[shall be] a barbarian
<915>
unto
<1722>
me
<1698>_.
Even
<2532>
so
<3779>
ye
<5210>_,
forasmuch as
<1893>
ye are
<2075> (5748)
zealous
<2207>
of spiritual
<4151>
[gifts], seek
<2212> (5720)
that
<2443>
ye may excel
<4052> (5725)
to
<4314>
the edifying
<3619>
of the church
<1577>_.
{of spiritual gifts: Gr. of spirits}
Wherefore
<1355>
let him that speaketh
<2980> (5723)
in an [unknown] tongue
<1100>
pray
<4336> (5737)
that
<2443>
he may interpret
<1329> (5725)_.
For
<1063>
if
<1437>
I pray
<4336> (5741)
in an [unknown] tongue
<1100>_,
my
<3450>
spirit
<4151>
prayeth
<4336> (5736)_,
but
<1161>
my
<3450>
understanding
<3563>
is
<2076> (5748)
unfruitful
<175>_.
What
<5101>
is it
<2076> (5748)
then
<3767>_?
I will pray
<4336> (5695)
with the spirit
<4151>_,
and
<1161>
I will pray
<4336> (5695)
with the understanding
<3563>
also
<2532>_:
I will sing
<5567> (5692)
with the spirit
<4151>_,
and
<1161>
I will sing
<5567> (5692)
with the understanding
<3563>
also
<2532>_.
Else
<1893>
when
<1437>
thou shalt bless
<2127> (5661)
with the spirit
<4151>_,
how
<4459>
shall he that occupieth
<378> (5723)
the room
<5117>
of the unlearned
<2399>
say
<2046> (5692)
Amen
<281>
at
<1909>
thy
<4674>
giving of thanks
<2169>_,
seeing
<1894>
he understandeth
<1492> (5758)
not
<3756>
what
<5101>
thou sayest
<3004> (5719)_?
For
<1063>
thou
<4771>
verily
<3303>
givest thanks
<2168> (5719)
well
<2573>_,
but
<235>
the other
<2087>
is
<3618> (0)
not
<3756>
edified
<3618> (5743)_.
I thank
<2168> (5719)
my
<3450>
God
<2316>_,
I speak
<2980> (5723)
with tongues
<1100>
more than
<3123>
ye
<5216>
all
<3956>_:
Yet
<235>
in
<1722>
the church
<1577>
I had rather
<2309> (5719)
speak
<2980> (5658)
five
<4002>
words
<3056>
with
<1223>
my
<3450>
understanding
<3563>_,
that
<2443>
[by my voice] I might teach
<2727> (5661)
others
<243>
also
<2532>_,
than
<2228>
ten thousand
<3463>
words
<3056>
in
<1722>
an [unknown] tongue
<1100>_.
Brethren
<80>_,
be
<1096> (5737)
not
<3361>
children
<3813>
in understanding
<5424>_:
howbeit
<235>
in malice
<2549>
be ye children
<3515> (5720)_,
but
<1161>
in understanding
<5424>
be
<1096> (5737)
men
<5046>_.
{men: Gr. perfect, or, of a ripe age}
In
<1722>
the law
<3551>
it is written
<1125> (5769)_,

<3754>
With
<1722>
[men of] other tongues
<2084>
and
<2532>
other
<1722> <2087>
lips
<5491>
will I speak
<2980> (5692)
unto this
<5129>
people
<2992>_;
and
<2532>
yet for all
<3779>
that will they
<1522> (0)
not
<3761>
hear
<1522> (5695)
me
<3450>_,
saith
<3004> (5719)
the Lord
<2962>_.
Wherefore
<5620>
tongues
<1100>
are
<1526> (5748)
for
<1519>
a sign
<4592>_,
not
<3756>
to them that believe
<4100> (5723)_,
but
<235>
to them that believe not
<571>_:
but
<1161>
prophesying
<4394>
[serveth] not
<3756>
for them that believe not
<571>_,
but
<235>
for them which believe
<4100> (5723)_.
If
<1437>
therefore
<3767>
the whole
<3650>
church
<1577>
be come together
<4905> (5632)
into
<1909>
one place
<846>_,
and
<2532>
all
<3956>
speak
<2980> (5725)
with tongues
<1100>_,
and
<1161>
there come in
<1525> (5632)
[those that are] unlearned
<2399>_,
or
<2228>
unbelievers
<571>_,
will they
<2046> (0)
not
<3756>
say
<2046> (5692)
that
<3754>
ye are mad
<3105> (5736)_?
But
<1161>
if
<1437>
all
<3956>
prophesy
<4395> (5725)_,
and
<1161>
there come in
<1525> (5632)
one
<5100>
that believeth not
<571>_,
or
<2228>
[one] unlearned
<2399>_,
he is convinced
<1651> (5743)
of
<5259>
all
<3956>_,
he is judged
<350> (5743)
of
<5259>
all
<3956>_:
And
<2532>
thus
<3779>
are
<1096> (0)
the secrets
<2927>
of his
<846>
heart
<2588>
made
<1096> (5736)
manifest
<5318>_;
and
<2532>
so
<3779>
falling down
<4098> (5631)
on
<1909>
[his] face
<4383>
he will worship
<4352> (5692)
God
<2316>_,
and report
<518> (5723)
that
<3754>
God
<2316>
is
<2076> (5748)
in
<1722>
you
<5213>
of a truth
<3689>_.
How
<5101>
is it
<2076> (5748)
then
<3767>_,
brethren
<80>_?
when
<3752>
ye come together
<4905> (5741)_,
every one
<1538>
of you
<5216>
hath
<2192> (5719)
a psalm
<5568>_,
hath
<2192> (5719)
a doctrine
<1322>_,
hath
<2192> (5719)
a tongue
<1100>_,
hath
<2192> (5719)
a revelation
<602>_,
hath
<2192> (5719)
an interpretation
<2058>_.
Let
<1096> (0)
all things
<3956>
be done
<1096> (5634)
unto
<4314>
edifying
<3619>_.
If
<1535>
any man
<5100>
speak
<2980> (5719)
in an [unknown] tongue
<1100>_,
[let it be] by
<2596>
two
<1417>_,
or
<2228>
at the most
<4118>
[by] three
<5140>_,
and
<2532>
[that] by
<303>
course
<3313>_;
and
<2532>
let
<1329> (0)
one
<1520>
interpret
<1329> (5720)_.
{two...: by two or three sentences separately}
But
<1161>
if
<3362> (0)
there be
<5600> (5753)
no
<3362>
interpreter
<1328>_,
let him keep silence
<4601> (5720)
in
<1722>
the church
<1577>_;
and
<1161>
let him speak
<2980> (5720)
to himself
<1438>_,
and
<2532>
to God
<2316>_.
<1161>@ Let
<2980> (0)
the prophets
<4396>
speak
<2980> (5720)
two
<1417>
or
<2228>
three
<5140>_,
and
<2532>
let
<1252> (0)
the other
<243>
judge
<1252> (5720)_.
If
<1161> <1437>
[any thing] be revealed
<601> (5686)
to another
<243>
that sitteth by
<2521> (5740)_,
let
<4601> (0)
the first
<4413>
hold his peace
<4601> (5720)_.
For
<1063>
ye may
<1410> (5736)
all
<3956>
prophesy
<4395> (5721)
one by one
<2596> <1520>_,
that
<2443>
all
<3956>
may learn
<3129> (5725)_,
and
<2532>
all
<3956>
may be comforted
<3870> (5747)_.
And
<2532>
the spirits
<4151>
of the prophets
<4396>
are subject
<5293> (5743)
to the prophets
<4396>_.
For
<1063>
God
<2316>
is
<2076> (5748)
not
<3756>
[the author] of confusion
<181>_,
but
<235>
of peace
<1515>_,
as
<5613>
in
<1722>
all
<3956>
churches
<1577>
of the saints
<40>_.
{confusion: Gr. tumult, or, unquietness}
Let
<4601> (0)
your
<5216>
women
<1135>
keep silence
<4601> (5720)
in
<1722>
the churches
<1577>_:
for
<1063>
it is
<2010> (0)
not
<3756>
permitted
<2010> (5769)
unto them
<846>
to speak
<2980> (5721)_;
but
<235>
[they are commanded] to be under obedience
<5293> (5733)_,
as
<2531>
also
<2532>
saith
<3004> (5719)
the law
<3551>_.
And
<1161>
if
<1487>
they will
<2309> (5719)
learn
<3129> (5629)
any thing
<5100>_,
let them ask
<1905> (5720)
their
<2398>
husbands
<435>
at
<1722>
home
<3624>_:
for
<1063>
it is
<2076> (5748)
a shame
<149>
for women
<1135>
to speak
<2980> (5721)
in
<1722>
the church
<1577>_.
What
<2228>_?
came
<1831> (0)
the word
<3056>
of God
<2316>
out
<1831> (5627)
from
<575>
you
<5216>_?
or
<2228>
came it
<2658> (5656)
unto
<1519>
you
<5209>
only
<3441>_?
If any man
<1536>
think himself
<1380> (5719)
to be
<1511> (5750)
a prophet
<4396>_,
or
<2228>
spiritual
<4152>_,
let him acknowledge
<1921> (5720)
that
<3754>
the things
<3739>
that I write
<1125> (5719)
unto you
<5213>
are
<1526> (5748)
the commandments
<1785>
of the Lord
<2962>_.
But
<1161>
if any man
<1536>
be ignorant
<50> (5719)_,
let him be ignorant
<50> (5720)_.
Wherefore
<5620>_,
brethren
<80>_,
covet
<2206> (5720)
to prophesy
<4395> (5721)_,
and
<2532>
forbid
<2967> (5720)
not
<3361>
to speak
<2980> (5721)
with tongues
<1100>_.
Let
<1096> (0)
all things
<3956>
be done
<1096> (5737)
decently
<2156>
and
<2532>
in
<2596>
order
<5010>_.
