12:1 Now concerning spiritual [gifts], brethren, I would not have you ignorant.
12:1 Now concerning spiritual gifts, brethren, I do not want you to be ignorant:

12:2 Ye know that ye were Gentiles, carried away unto these dumb idols, even as ye were led.
12:2 You know that you were Gentiles, carried away to these dumb idols, however you were led.

12:3 Wherefore I give you to understand, that no man speaking by the Spirit of God calleth Jesus accursed: and [that] no man can say that Jesus is the Lord, but by the Holy Ghost.
12:3 Therefore I make known to you that no one speaking by the Spirit of God calls Jesus accursed, and no one can say that Jesus is Lord except by the Holy Spirit.

12:4 Now there are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit.
12:4 There are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit.

12:5 And there are differences of administrations, but the same Lord.
12:5 There are differences of ministries, but the same Lord.

12:6 And there are diversities of operations, but it is the same God which worketh all in all.
12:6 And there are diversities of activities, but it is the same God who works all in all.

12:7 But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man to profit withal.
12:7 But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to each one for the profit of all:

12:8 For to one is given by the Spirit the word of wisdom; to another the word of knowledge by the same Spirit;
12:8 for to one is given the word of wisdom through the Spirit, to another the word of knowledge through the same Spirit,

12:9 To another faith by the same Spirit; to another the gifts of healing by the same Spirit;
12:9 to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healings by the same Spirit,

12:10 To another the working of miracles; to another prophecy; to another discerning of spirits; to another [divers] kinds of tongues; to another the interpretation of tongues:
12:10 to another the working of miracles, to another prophecy, to another discerning of spirits, to another different kinds of tongues, to another the interpretation of tongues.

12:11 But all these worketh that one and the selfsame Spirit, dividing to every man severally as he will.
12:11 But one and the same Spirit works all these things, distributing to each one individually as He wills.

12:12 For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of that one body, being many, are one body: so also [is] Christ.
12:12 For as the body is one and has many members, but all the members of that one body, being many, are one body, so also is Christ.

12:13 For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether [we be] Jews or Gentiles, whether [we be] bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit.
12:13 For by one Spirit we were all baptized into one body--whether Jews or Greeks, whether slaves or free--and have all been made to drink into one Spirit.

12:14 For the body is not one member, but many.
12:14 For in fact the body is not one member but many.

12:15 If the foot shall say, Because I am not the hand, I am not of the body; is it therefore not of the body?
12:15 If the foot should say, "Because I am not a hand, I am not of the body," is it therefore not of the body?

12:16 And if the ear shall say, Because I am not the eye, I am not of the body; is it therefore not of the body?
12:16 And if the ear should say, "Because I am not an eye, I am not of the body," is it therefore not of the body?

12:17 If the whole body [were] an eye, where [were] the hearing? If the whole [were] hearing, where [were] the smelling?
12:17 If the whole body were an eye, where would be the hearing? If the whole were hearing, where would be the smelling?

12:18 But now hath God set the members every one of them in the body, as it hath pleased him.
12:18 But now God has set the members, each one of them, in the body just as He pleased.

12:19 And if they were all one member, where [were] the body?
12:19 And if they were all one member, where would the body be?

12:20 But now [are they] many members, yet but one body.
12:20 But now indeed there are many members, yet one body.

12:21 And the eye cannot say unto the hand, I have no need of thee: nor again the head to the feet, I have no need of you.
12:21 And the eye cannot say to the hand, "I have no need of you"; nor again the head to the feet, "I have no need of you."

12:22 Nay, much more those members of the body, which seem to be more feeble, are necessary:
12:22 No, much rather, those members of the body which seem to be weaker are necessary.

12:23 And those [members] of the body, which we think to be less honourable, upon these we bestow more abundant honour; and our uncomely [parts] have more abundant comeliness.
12:23 And those members of the body which we think to be less honorable, on these we bestow greater honor; and our unpresentable parts have greater modesty,

12:24 For our comely [parts] have no need: but God hath tempered the body together, having given more abundant honour to that [part] which lacked:
12:24 but our presentable parts have no need. But God composed the body, having given greater honor to that part which lacks it,

12:25 That there should be no schism in the body; but [that] the members should have the same care one for another.
12:25 that there should be no schism in the body, but that the members should have the same care for one another.

12:26 And whether one member suffer, all the members suffer with it; or one member be honoured, all the members rejoice with it.
12:26 And if one member suffers, all the members suffer with it; or if one member is honored, all the members rejoice with it.

12:27 Now ye are the body of Christ, and members in particular.
12:27 Now you are the body of Christ, and members individually.

12:28 And God hath set some in the church, first apostles, secondarily prophets, thirdly teachers, after that miracles, then gifts of healings, helps, governments, diversities of tongues.
12:28 And God has appointed these in the church: first apostles, second prophets, third teachers, after that miracles, then gifts of healings, helps, administrations, varieties of tongues.

12:29 [Are] all apostles? [are] all prophets? [are] all teachers? [are] all workers of miracles?
12:29 Are all apostles? Are all prophets? Are all teachers? Are all workers of miracles?

12:30 Have all the gifts of healing? do all speak with tongues? do all interpret?
12:30 Do all have gifts of healings? Do all speak with tongues? Do all interpret?

12:31 But covet earnestly the best gifts: and yet shew I unto you a more excellent way.
12:31 But earnestly desire the best gifts. And yet I show you a more excellent way.
