1 AND I, my brethren, could not speak with you as with the spiritual, but as with the carnal, and as with babes in the Meshiha.
2 I have sustained you with milk, and have not given you meat; for as yet you could not, nor can you now, (bear it).
3 For as yet you are in the flesh. For while there are among you envy and contentions and divisions, are you not carnal, and walking in the flesh?
4 For while some of you say, I am of Paulos, and another, I am of Apollo, are you not carnal?
5 For who is Paulos, or who Apollo, but ministers by whom you have believed and each as the Lord gave to him?
6 I have planted, and Apollo watered, but Aloha made to increase.
7 He then who planteth is not any thing nor he who watereth; but Aloha who maketh to increase.
8 But he who planteth and he who watereth are one, (and) each according to his labour his recompence receiveth.
9 For with Aloha we work; and the work of Aloha and the edifice of Aloha are you.
10 And according to the grace of Aloha which is given to me, I have laid the foundation as a wise architect; but another hath built upon it.
11 But let every man beware how he buildeth upon it. For another foundation besides this which is laid no man can lay, (that, namely,) which is Jeshu the Meshiha.
12 And if any man build upon this foundation gold, or silver, or precious stones; or wood, or hay, or stubble;
13 the work of every one shall be revealed, for that day shall reveal it; for by the fire shall it be revealed, and the work of every man as it is the fire shall distinguish.
14 And he whose work which he builded shall abide, will receive his recompense;
15 and he whose work shall be burned, shall fail; but he (himself) shall be rescued, but so as from fire.
16 KNOW YOU not that you are the temple of Aloha, and (that) the Spirit of Aloha inhabiteth in you?
17 Whoso destroyeth the temple of Aloha, him will Aloha destroy for the temple of Aloha is holy, which you are.
18 Let no man deceive himself. Whoever among you supposeth himself wise in this world, let him become foolish, that he may be wise.
19 For the wisdom of this world is folly with Aloha; for it is written, He hath taken the wise in their own craftiness.
20 And again, The Lord knoweth the thoughts of the wise, that they are vain.
21 On this account let no one boast in men: for every thing is yours;
22 whether Paulos, or Apolo, or Kipha, or the world, or life, or death, or things standing, or things to be; every thing is yours,
23 and you are of the Meshiha, and the Meshiha of Aloha.
