1 BUT concerning spirituals, my brethren, I wish you to know
2 that you were Heathens, and unto idols which have no voice you were led without discernment .
3 I therefore make known to you, that there is no man who by the Spirit of Aloha speaketh, and saith that Jeshu is accursed; and no man also can say that Jeshu is THE LORD unless by the Spirit of Holiness.
4 Now, there are distributions of gifts, but one is the Spirit;
5 and there are distributions of ministries, but one is the Lord;
6 and distributions of powers, but one is Aloha, who worketh all in every man.
7 But to each is given (such) a revelation of the Spirit as is profitable to him.
8 To one is given by the Spirit the word of wisdom, but to another the word of knowledge by the same Spirit;
9 and to another, faith by the same Spirit; and to another, the gifts of healing by the same Spirit;
10 but to another, powers; to another, prophecy; to another, the discernment of spirits; but to another, kinds of tongues; and to another, the interpretation of tongues.
11 But all these one Spirit effecteth, and divideth unto every man as he willeth.
12 For, as the body is one, and in it are many members, but all the members of the body, though many, are one body; so also is the Meshiha.
13 For we all by one Spirit into one body are baptized; whether Jihudoyee or Aramoyee; whether servants or sons of freedom; and all of us have imbibed one Spirit.
14 For the body also is not one member, but many.
15 For if the foot should say, Because I am not the hand, I am not of the body itself, would it therefore not be of the body itself?
16 And if the ear should say, Because I am not the eye, I am not of the body itself, would it therefore not be of the body itself?
17 For if the whole body were the eye, where would be the hearing? And if the whole were hearing, where would be the smelling?
18 But now hath Aloha set all the members severally in the body as he willed.
19 But if all were one member, where would be the body?
20 But now the members are many, but the body one.
21 The eye is not able to say to the hand, Thou art not needful to me; nor is the hand able to say to the feet, You are not needful to me.
22 But those members which are considered to be feeble, of them is the more especial need;
23 and those which we consider contemptible in the body, to these the more we increase the honour; and on those which are of shame we bestow the greater decoration.
24 But those members that are honourable in us have no need of adornment: but Aloha hath contempered the body, and given the more honour to the member which is inconsiderable;
25 that there should be no divisions in the body, but all the members equally one of the other should have care:
26 as that when one member shall be diseased, all may suffer; and if one member be glorified, all the members may be glorified.
27 But you are the body of the Meshiha, and members in your place.
28 FOR Aloha hath placed in the church, first, apostles; after them, prophets; after them, teachers; after them, workers of miracles; after them, gifts of healing, and helpers, and leaders, and kinds of tongues.
29 Are all apostles? Are all prophets? Are all teachers? Are all workers of miracles?
30 Have all the gifts of healing? Do all speak with tongues, or do all interpret?
31 But if you are emulous of great gifts, I will yet show you a way more admirable.
