Paul, a called apostle of Christ Jesus through the will of God, and Sosthenes the brother,
To the church of God which is in Corinth, to those who have been sanctified in Christ Jesus, the called saints, with all those who call upon the name of our Lord Jesus Christ in every place, who is theirs and ours:
Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
I thank my God always concerning you based upon the grace of God which was given to you in Christ Jesus,
That in everything you were enriched in Him, in all utterance and all knowledge,
Even as the testimony of Christ was confirmed in you,
So that you do not lack in any gift, eagerly awaiting the revelation of our Lord Jesus Christ,
Who will also confirm you until the end unreprovable in the day of our Lord Jesus Christ.
God is faithful, through whom you were called into the fellowship of His Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.
Now I beseech you, brothers, through the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that you all speak the same thing and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be attuned in the same mind and in the same opinion.
For it has been made clear to me concerning you, my brothers, by those of the household of Chloe, that there are strifes among you.
Now I mean this, that each of you says, I am of Paul, and I of Apollos, and I of Cephas, and I of Christ.
Is Christ divided? Was Paul crucified for you? Or were you baptized into the name of Paul?
I thank God that I baptized none of you except Crispus and Gaius,
That no one may say that you were baptized into my name.
And I did baptize the household of Stephanas also; beyond that I do not know if I baptized any other.
For Christ did not send me to baptize but to announce the gospel, not in wisdom of speech that the cross of Christ may not be made void.
