3:1 And I, brethren, could not speak to you as unto spiritual, but as unto carnal. As unto little ones in Christ.
3:2 I gave you milk to drink, not meat; for you were not able as yet. But neither indeed are you now able; for you are yet carnal.
3:3 For, whereas there is among you envying and contention, are you not carnal, and walk according to man ?
3:4 For while one saith, I indeed am of Paul; and another, I am of Apollo; are you not men ? What then is Apollo, and what is Paul?
3:5 The ministers of him whom you have believed; and to every one as the Lord hath given.
3:6 I have planted, Apollo watered, but God gave the increase.
3:7 Therefore, neither he that planteth is any thing, nor he that watereth; but God that giveth the increase.
3:8 Now he that planteth, and he that watereth, ate one. And every man shall receive his own reward, according to his own labour.
3:9 For we are God's coadjutors: you are God's husbandry; you are God's building.
3:10 According to the grace of God that is given to me, as a wise architect, I have laid the foundation; and another buildeth thereon. But let every man take heed how he buildeth thereupon.
3:11 For other foundation no man can lay, but that which is laid; which is Christ Jesus.
3:12 Now if any man build upon this foundation, gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, stubble:
3:13 Every man's work shall be manifest; for the day of the Lord shall declare it, because it shall be revealed in fire; and the fire shall try every man's work, of what sort it is.
3:14 If any man's work abide, which he hath built thereupon, he shall receive a reward.
3:15 If any man's work burn, he shall suffer loss; but he himself shall be saved, yet so as by fire.
3:16 Know you not, that you are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you ?
3:17 But if any man violate the temple of God, him shall God destroy. For the temple of God is holy, which you are.
3:18 Let no man deceive himself: if any man among you seem to be wise in this world, let him become a fool, that he may be wise.
3:19 For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written: I will catch the wise in their own craftiness.
3:20 And again: The Lord knoweth the thoughts of the wise, that they are vain.
3:21 Let no man therefore glory in men.
3:22 For all things are yours, whether it be Paul, or Apollo, or Cephas, or the world, or life, or death, or things present, or things to some; for all are yours;
3:23 And you are Christ's; and Christ is God's.
