The Darby Bible
1 Corinthians, Chapter 3

   1: And I, brethren, have not been able to speak to you as to spiritual, but as to fleshly; as to babes in Christ.
   2: I have given you milk to drink, not meat, for ye have not yet been able, nor indeed are ye yet able;
   3: for ye are yet carnal. For whereas [there are] among you emulation and strife, are ye not carnal, and walk according to man?
   4: For when one says, I am of Paul, and another, I of Apollos, are ye not men?
   5: Who then is Apollos, and who Paul? Ministering servants, through whom ye have believed, and as the Lord has given to each.
   6: I have planted; Apollos watered; but God has given the increase.
   7: So that neither the planter is anything, nor the waterer; but God the giver of the increase.
   8: But the planter and the waterer are one; but each shall receive his own reward according to his own labour.
   9: For we are God's fellow-workmen; ye are God's husbandry, God's building.
   10: According to the grace of God which has been given to me, as a wise architect, I have laid the foundation, but another builds upon it. But let each see how he builds upon it.
   11: For other foundation can no man lay besides that which [is] laid, which is Jesus Christ.
   12: Now if any one build upon [this] foundation, gold, silver, precious stones, wood, grass, straw,
   13: the work of each shall be made manifest; for the day shall declare [it], because it is revealed in fire; and the fire shall try the work of each what it is.
   14: If the work of any one which he has built upon [the foundation] shall abide, he shall receive a reward.
   15: If the work of any one shall be consumed, he shall suffer loss, but he shall be saved, but so as through [the] fire.
   16: Do ye not know that ye are [the] temple of God, and [that] the Spirit of God dwells in you?
   17: If any one corrupt the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, and such are ye.
   18: Let no one deceive himself: if any one thinks himself to be wise among you in this world, let him become foolish, that he may be wise.
   19: For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God; for it is written, He who takes the wise in their craftiness.
   20: And again, [The] Lord knows the reasonings of the wise that they are vain.
   21: So that let no one boast in men; for all things are yours.
   22: Whether Paul, or Apollos, or Cephas, or [the] world, or life, or death, or things present, or things coming, all are yours;
   23: and ye [are] Christ's, and Christ [is] God's.
