3:1 And I, brethren, could not speak unto you as unto spiritual, but as unto carnal, as unto babes in Christ.
3:2 I fed you with milk, not with meat; for ye were not yet able `to bear it': nay, not even now are ye able;
3:3 for ye are yet carnal: for whereas there is among you jealousy and strife, are ye not carnal, and do ye not walk after the manner of men?
3:4 For when one saith, I am of Paul; and another, I am of Apollos; are ye not men?
3:5 What then is Apollos? and what is Paul? Ministers through whom ye believed; and each as the Lord gave to him.
3:6 I planted, Apollos watered; but God gave the increase.
3:7 So then neither is he that planteth anything, neither he that watereth; but God that giveth the increase.
3:8 Now he that planteth and he that watereth are one: but each shall receive his own reward according to his own labor.
3:9 For we are God's fellow-workers: ye are God's husbandry, God's building.
3:10 According to the grace of God which was given unto me, as a wise masterbuilder I laid a foundation; and another buildeth thereon. But let each man take heed how he buildeth thereon.
3:11 For other foundation can no man lay than that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ.
3:12 But if any man buildeth on the foundation gold, silver, costly stones, wood, hay, stubble;
3:13 each man's work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it is revealed in fire; and the fire itself shall prove each man's work of what sort it is.
3:14 If any man's work shall abide which he built thereon, he shall receive a reward.
3:15 If any man's work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved; yet so as through fire.
3:16 Know ye not that ye are a temple of God, and `that' the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?
3:17 If any man destroyeth the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, and such are ye.
3:18 Let no man deceive himself. If any man thinketh that he is wise among you in this world, let him become a fool, that he may become wise.
3:19 For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, He that taketh the wise in their craftiness:
3:20 and again, The Lord knoweth the reasonings of the wise that they are vain.
3:21 Wherefore let no one glory in men. For all things are yours;
3:22 whether Paul, or Apollos, or Cephas, or the world, or life, or death, or things present, or things to come; all are yours;
3:23 and ye are Christ's; and Christ is God's.
