The Webster Bible
1 Corinthians, Chapter 3

   1: And I, brethren, could not speak to you as to spiritual, but as to carnal, [even] as to babes in Christ.
   2: I have fed you with milk, and not with meat: for hitherto ye were not able [to bear it], neither yet now are ye able.
   3: For ye are yet carnal: for whereas [there is] among you envying, and strife, and divisions, are ye not carnal, and walk as men?
   4: For while one saith, I am of Paul; and another, I [am] of Apollos; are ye not carnal?
   5: Who then is Paul, and who [is] Apollos, but ministers by whom ye believed, even as the Lord gave to every man?
   6: I have planted, Apollos watered: but God hath given the increase.
   7: So then, neither is he that planteth any thing, neither he that watereth: but God that giveth the increase.
   8: Now he that planteth and he that watereth are one: and every man shall receive his own reward, according to his own labor.
   9: For we are laborers together with God: ye are God's husbandry, [ye are] God's building.
   10: According to the grace of God which is given to me, as a wise master-builder, I have laid the foundation, and another buildeth upon it. But let every man take heed how he buildeth upon it.
   11: For other foundation can no man lay than that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ.
   12: Now if any man buildeth upon this foundation, gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, stubble;
   13: Every man's work will be made manifest: for the day will declare it, because it will be revealed by fire; and the fire will try every man's work, of what sort it is.
   14: If any man's work abideth which he hath built upon it, he shall receive a reward.
   15: If any man's work shall be burned, he will suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire.
   16: Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and [that] the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?
   17: If any man defileth the temple of God, him will God destroy: for the temple of God is holy, which [temple] ye are.
   18: Let no man deceive himself. If any man among you seemeth to be wise in this world, let him become a fool, that he may be wise.
   19: For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, He taketh the wise in their own craftiness.
   20: And again, The Lord knoweth the thoughts of the wise, that they are vain.
   21: Therefore let no man glory 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 to come; all are yours;
   23: And ye are Christ's; and Christ [is] God's.
