Shaul's First Letter to the Corinthians
1:1 Shaul, called to be an emissary of YaHuWSHuWaH haMashiyach through the will of YaHuWaH, and our brother Sosthenes, 1:2 to the assembly of YaHuWaH which is at Corinth; those who are Set-apart in haMashiyach YaHuWSHuWaH, called to be kodesh ones, with all who call on the Name of our Master YaHuWSHuWaH haMashiyach in every place, both theirs and ours: 1:3 favor to you and shalom from Master YaHuWaH our Father and the Master YaHuWSHuWaH haMashiyach.
1:4 I always thank YaHuWaH concerning you, for the favor of YaHuWaH which was given you in haMashiyach YaHuWSHuWaH; 1:5 that in everything you were enriched in Him, in all speech and all knowledge; 1:6 even as the witness of haMashiyach was confirmed in you: 1:7 so that you come behind in no gift; waiting for the revelation of our Master YaHuWSHuWaH haMashiyach; 1:8 Who will also confirm you until the end, blameless in the Day of our Master YaHuWSHuWaH haMashiyach. 1:9 YaHuWaH is faithful, through whom you were called into the fellowship of His Son, YaHuWSHuWaH haMashiyach, our Master. 1:10 Now I plead with you, brothers, by the Name of our Master, YaHuWSHuWaH haMashiyach, that you all agree and be of one Word (Miltha - Torah of YaHuWah), and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be perfected together in the same mind and in the same judgment. 1:11 For it has been reported to me concerning you, my brothers, by those who are from Chloe’s household, that there are contentions among you. 1:12 Now I mean this, that each one of you says, “I follow Shaul,” “I follow Apollos,” “I follow Kefa,” and, “I follow haMashiyach.” 1:13 Is haMashiyach divided? Was Shaul put on the stake for you? Or were you immersed into the name of Shaul? 1:14 I thank YaHuWaH that I immersed none of you, except Crispus and Gaius, 1:15 so that no one should say that I had immersed you into my own name. 1:16 (I also immersed the household of Stephanas; besides them, I don’t know whether I immersed any other.) 1:17 For haMashiyach sent me not to immerse, but to proclaim the Besorah—not in wisdom of words, so that the stake of haMashiyach wouldn’t be made void. 1:18 For the word of the stake is foolishness to those who are dying, but to us who are saved it is the Power of YaHuWaH. 1:19 For it is written, “I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, I will bring the discernment of the discerning to nothing.”
1:20 Where is the wise? Where is the scribe? Where is the Torah scholar of this world? Hasn’t YaHuWaH made foolish the wisdom of this world? 1:21 For seeing that in the wisdom of YaHuWaH, the world through its wisdom didn’t know YaHuWaH, it was YaHuWaH’s good pleasure through the foolishness of proclaiming to save those who believe. 1:22 For Yahuwdim ask for signs, Arameans seek after wisdom, 1:23 but we proclaim haMashiyach impaled; a stumbling block to Yahuwdim, and foolishness to Arameans, 1:24 but to those who are called, both Yahuwdim and Arameans, haMashiyach is the Power of YaHuWaH and the Wisdom of YaHuWaH. 1:25 Because the foolishness of YaHuWaH is wiser than men, and the weakness of YaHuWaH is stronger than men. 1:26 For you see your calling, brothers, that not many are wise according to the flesh, not many mighty, and not many noble; 1:27 but YaHuWaH chose the foolish things of the world that He might put to shame those who are wise. YaHuWaH chose the weak things of the world, that He might put to shame the things that are strong; 1:28 and YaHuWaH chose the lowly things of the world, and the things that are despised, and the things that are not, that He might bring to nothing the things that are: 1:29 that no flesh should boast before YaHuWaH. 1:30 But of Him, you are in haMashiyach YaHuWSHuWaH, Who was made to us Wisdom from YaHuWaH, and righteousness and Set-apartness, and redemption: 1:31 that, according as it is written, “He who boasts, let him boast in YaHuWaH.
2:1 When I came to you, brothers, I didn’t come with excellence of speech or of wisdom, proclaiming to you the witness of YaHuWaH. 2:2 For I determined not to know anything among you, except YaHuWSHuWaH haMashiyach, and Him impaled. 2:3 I was with you in weakness, in fear, and in much trembling. 2:4 My speech and my proclaiming were not in persuasive words of human wisdom, but in demonstration of the Ruwach and of Power, 2:5 that your persuasion wouldn’t stand in the wisdom of men, but in the Power of YaHuWaH. 2:6 We speak wisdom, however, among those who are full grown; yet a wisdom not of this world, nor of the rulers of this world, who are coming to nothing. 2:7 But we speak YaHuWaH’s wisdom in a secret, the wisdom that has been hidden, which YaHuWaH foreordained before the worlds for our esteem, 2:8 which none of the rulers of this world has known. For had they known it, they wouldn’t have impaled the Master of esteem. 2:9 But as it is written:
“Things which an eye didn’t see, and an ear didn’t hear, which didn’t enter into the heart of man, these YaHuWaH has prepared for those who love Him.” Yasha. 64:4
2:10 But to us, YaHuWaH revealed them through the Ruwach. For the Ruwach searches all things, yes, the deep things of YaHuWaH. 2:11 For who among men knows the things of a man, except the ruwach of the man, which is in him? Even so, no one knows the things of YaHuWaH, except YaHuWaH’s Ruwach. 2:12 But we received, not the ruwach of the world, but the Ruwach which is from YaHuWaH, that we might know the things that were freely given to us by YaHuWaH. 2:13 Which things also we speak, not in words which man’s wisdom teaches, but which the Ruwach haKadosh teaches, comparing ruwachual matters with ruwachual matters. 2:14 Now the natural man doesn’t receive the things of YaHuWaH’s Ruwach, for they are foolishness to him, and he can’t know them, because they are ruwachually discerned. 2:15 But he who is ruwachual discerns all things, and he himself is judged by no one. 2:16 “For who has known the mind of YaHuWaH, that he should instruct Him?”But we have Mashiyach’s mind.
3:1 Brothers, I couldn’t speak to you as to ruwachual ones, but as to fleshly ones, as to babies in haMashiyach. 3:2 I fed you with milk, not with meat; for you weren’t yet ready. Indeed, not even now are you ready, 3:3 for you are still fleshly. For insofar as there is jealousy, strife, and factions among you, aren’t you fleshly, and don’t you walk in the ways of men? 3:4 For when one says, “I follow Sha'ul,” and another, “I follow Apollos,” aren’t you fleshly? 3:5 Who then is Apollos, and who is Shaul, but servants through whom you believed; and each as YaHuWaH gave to him? 3:6 I planted. Apollos watered. But YaHuWaH gave the increase. 3:7 So then neither he who plants is anything, nor he who waters, but YaHuWaH Who gives the increase. 3:8 Now he who plants and he who waters are the same, but each will receive his own reward according to his own labor. 3:9 For we are YaHuWaH’s fellow workers. You are YaHuWaH’s farming, YaHuWaH’s building. 3:10 According to the favor of YaHuWaH which was given to me, as a wise master builder I laid a foundation, and another builds on it. But let each man be careful how he builds on it. 3:11 For no one can lay any other foundation than that which has been laid, which is YaHuWSHuWaH haMashiyach. 3:12 But if anyone builds on the foundation with gold, silver, costly stones, wood, hay, or stubble; 3:13 each man’s work will be revealed. For the Day will declare it, because it is revealed in fire; and the fire itself will test what sort of work each man’s work is. 3:14 If any man’s work remains which he built on it, he will receive a reward. 3:15 If any man’s work is burned, he will suffer loss, but he himself will be saved, but as through fire.
3:16 Don’t you know that you are a Dwelling Place of YaHuWaH, and that YaHuWaH’s Ruwach lives in you? 3:17 If anyone destroys the Dwelling Place of YaHuWaH, YaHuWaH will destroy him; for YaHuWaH’s Dwelling Place is Kodesh, which you are. 3:18 Let no one deceive himself. If anyone thinks 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 YaHuWaH. For it is written, “He has taken the wise in their craftiness.” 3:20 And again, “YaHuWaH knows the reasoning of the wise, that it is worthless.”3:21 Therefore let no one boast in men. For all things are yours, 3:22 whether Sha'ul, or Apollos, or Kefa, or the world, or life, or death, or things present, or things to come. All are yours, 3:23 and you are Mashiyach’s, and haMashiyach is YaHuWaH’s.
4:1 So let a man think of us as Mashiyach’s servants, and stewards of YaHuWaH’s secrets. 4:2 Here, moreover, it is required of stewards, that they be found faithful. 4:3 But with me it is a very small thing that I should be judged by you, or by man’s judgment. Yes, I don’t judge my own self. 4:4 For I know nothing against myself. Yet I am not declared right by this, but He Who judges me is Master YaHuWaH. 4:5 Therefore judge nothing before the time, until the Master YaHuWah comes, Who will both bring to light the hidden things of darkness, and reveal the counsels of the hearts. Then each man will get his praise from YaHuWaH.
4:6 Now these things, brothers, I have in a figure transferred to myself and Apollos for your sakes, that in us you might learn not to think beyond the things which are written, that none of you be puffed up against one another. 4:7 For who makes you different? And what do you have that you didn’t receive? But if you did receive it, why do you boast as if you had not received it? 4:8 You are already filled. You have already become rich. You have come to reign without us. Yes, and I wish that you did reign, that we also might reign with you. 4:9 For, I think that YaHuWaH has displayed us, the emissaries, last of all, like men sentenced to death. For we are made a spectacle to the world, both to Messengers and men. 4:10 We are fools for Mashiyach’s sake, but you are wise in haMashiyach. We are weak, but you are strong. You have esteem, but we have no esteem. 4:11 Even to this present hour we hunger, thirst, are naked, are beaten, and have no certain dwelling place. 4:12 We toil, working with our own hands. When people curse us, we bless. Being persecuted, we endure. 4:13 Being defamed, we entreat. We are made as the filth of the world, the dirt wiped off by all, even until now. 4:14 I don’t write these things to shame you, but to admonish you as my beloved children. 4:15 For though you have ten thousand tutors in haMashiyach, yet not many fathers. For in haMashiyach YaHuWSHuWaH, I became your father through the Besorah. 4:16 I beg you therefore, be imitators of me. 4:17 Because of this I have sent Timothy to you, who is my beloved and faithful child in YaHuWaH, who will remind you of my ways which are in haMashiyach, even as I teach everywhere in every assembly. 4:18 Now some are puffed up, as though I were not coming to you. 4:19 But I will come to you shortly, if YaHuWaH is willing. And I will know, not the word of those who are puffed up, but the Power. 4:20 For the Kingdom of YaHuWaH is not in word, but in Power. 4:21 What do you want? Shall I come to you with a rod, or in love and a ruwach of gentleness?
5:1 It is actually reported that there is sexual immorality among you, and such sexual immorality as is not even named among the gentiles, that one has his father’s wife. 5:2 You are puffed up, and didn’t rather mourn, that he who had done this deed might be removed from among you. 5:3 For I most certainly, as being absent in body but present in ruwach, have already, as though I were present, judged him who has done this thing. 5:4 In the name of our Master YaHuWSHuWaH haMashiyach, you being gathered together, and my ruwach, with the Power of our Master YaHuWSHuWaH haMashiyach, 5:5 are to deliver such a one to Satan for the destruction of the flesh, that the ruwach may be saved in the Day of the Master YaHuWSHuWaH.
5:6 Your boasting is not good. Don’t you know that a little yeast leavens the whole lump? 5:7 Purge out the old yeast, that you may be a new lump, even as you are unleavened. For indeed haMashiyach, our Pesach, has been offered in our place. 5:8 Therefore let us observe the festival [moed of Pesach], not with old yeast, neither with the yeast of malice and wickedness, but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth. 5:9 I wrote to you in my letter to have no company with sexual sinners; 5:10 yet not at all meaning with the sexual sinners of this world, or with the covetous and extortioners, or with idolaters; for then you would have to leave the world. 5:11 But as it is, I wrote to you not to associate with anyone who is called a brother who is a sexual sinner, or covetous, or an idolater, or a slanderer, or a drunkard, or an extortioner. Don’t even eat with such a person. 5:12 For what have I to do with also judging those who are outside? Don’t you judge those who are within? 5:13 But those who are outside, YaHuWaH judges. “Put away the wicked man from among yourselves.”
6:1 Dare any of you, having a matter against his neighbor, go to law before the unrighteous, and not before the kodesh ones? 6:2 Don’t you know that the kodesh ones will judge the world? And if the world is judged by you, are you unworthy to judge the smallest matters? 6:3 Don’t you know that we will judge Messengers? How much more, things that pertain to this life? 6:4 If then, you have to judge things pertaining to this life, do you set them to judge who are of no account in the assembly? 6:5 I say this to move you to shame. Isn’t there even one wise man among you who would be able to decide between his brothers? 6:6 But brother goes to law with brother, and that before unbelievers! 6:7 Therefore it is already altogether a defect in you, that you have lawsuits one with another. Why not rather be wronged? Why not rather be defrauded? 6:8 No, but you yourselves do wrong, and defraud, and that against your brothers. 6:9 Or don’t you know that the unrighteous will not inherit the Kingdom of YaHuWaH? Don’t be deceived. Neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor male prostitutes, nor homosexuals, 6:10 nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor slanderers, nor extortioners, will inherit the Kingdom of YaHuWaH. 6:11 Such were some of you, but you were washed. But you were set-apart. But you were declared right in the Name of the Master YaHuWSHuWaH, and in the Ruwach of YaHuWaH. 6:12 “All things are lawful for me,” but not all things are expedient. “All things are lawful for me,” but I will not be brought under the power of anything. 6:13 “Foods for the belly, and the belly for foods,” but YaHuWaH will bring to nothing both it and them. But the body is not for sexual immorality, but for YaHuWaH; and YaHuWaH for the body. 6:14 Now YaHuWaH raised up the Master haMashiyach, and will also raise us up by his Power. 6:15 Don’t you know that your bodies are members of haMashiyach? Shall I then take the members of haMashiyach, and make them members of a prostitute? May it never be! 6:16 Or don’t you know that he who is joined to a prostitute is one body? For, “The two,” says he, “will become one flesh.” 6:17 But he who is joined to YaHuWaH is one ruwach. 6:18 Flee sexual immorality! “Every sin that a man does is outside the body,” but he who commits sexual immorality sins against his own body. 6:19 Or don’t you know that your body is a Dwelling Place of the Ruwach haKadosh Which is in you, which you have from YaHuWaH? You are not your own, 6:20 for you were bought with a price. Therefore esteem YaHuWaH in your body and in your ruwach, which are YaHuWaH’s.
7:1 Now concerning the things about which you wrote to me: it is good for a man not to touch a woman. 7:2 But, because of sexual immoralities, let each man have his own wife, and let each woman have her own husband. 7:3 Let the husband render to his wife the affection owed her, and likewise also the wife to her husband. 7:4 The wife doesn’t have authority over her own body, but the husband. Likewise also the husband doesn’t have authority over his own body, but the wife. 7:5 Don’t deprive one another, unless it is by consent for a season, that you may give yourselves to fasting and prayer, and may be together again, that Satan doesn’t tempt you because of your lack of self-control.
7:6 But this I say by way of concession, not of commandment. 7:7 Yet I wish that all men were like me. However each man has his own gift from YaHuWaH, one of this kind, and another of that kind. 7:8 But I say to the unmarried and to widows, it is good for them if they remain even as I am. 7:9 But if they don’t have self-control, let them marry. For it’s better to marry than to burn. 7:10 But to the married I command—not I, but YaHuWaH—that the wife not leave her husband 7:11 (but if she departs, let her remain unmarried, or else be reconciled to her husband), and that the husband not leave his wife.
7:12 But to the rest I—not YaHuWaH—say, if any brother has an unbelieving wife, and she is content to live with him, let him not leave her. 7:13 The woman who has an unbelieving husband, and he is content to live with her, let her not leave her husband. 7:14 For the unbelieving husband is set-apart in the wife, and the unbelieving wife is set-apart in the husband. Otherwise your children would be unclean, but now they are kodesh. 7:15 Yet if the unbeliever departs, let there be separation. The brother or the sister is not under bondage in such cases, but YaHuWaH has called us in shalom. 7:16 For how do you know, wife, whether you will save your husband? Or how do you know, husband, whether you will save your wife? 7:17 Only, as YaHuWaH has distributed to each man, as YaHuWaH has called each, so let him walk. So I command in all the assemblies.
7:18 Was anyone called having been circumcised? Let him not become uncircumcised. Has anyone been called in uncircumcision? Let him not be circumcised. 7:19 Circumcision is nothing, and uncircumcision is nothing, but the keeping of the Commandments of YaHuWaH. 7:20 Let each man stay in that calling in which he was called. 7:21 Were you called being a bondservant? Don’t let that bother you, but if you get an opportunity to become free, use it. 7:22 For he who was called in YaHuWaH being a bondservant is YaHuWaH’s free man. Likewise he who was called being free is Mashiyach’s bondservant. 7:23 You were bought with a price. Don’t become bondservants of men. 7:24 Brothers, let each man, in whatever condition he was called, stay in that condition with YaHuWaH.
7:25 Now concerning virgins, I have no commandment from YaHuWaH, but I give my judgment as one who has obtained mercy from YaHuWaH to be trustworthy. 7:26 I think that it is good therefore, because of the distress that is on us, that it is good for a man to be as he is. 7:27 Are you bound to a wife? Don’t seek to be freed. Are you free from a wife? Don’t seek a wife. 7:28 But if you marry, you have not sinned. If a virgin marries, she has not sinned. Yet such will have oppression in the flesh, and I want to spare you. 7:29 But I say this, brothers: the time is short, that from now on, both those who have wives may be as though they had none; 7:30 and those who weep, as though they didn’t weep; and those who rejoice, as though they didn’t rejoice; and those who buy, as though they didn’t possess; 7:31 and those who use the world, as not using it to the fullest. For the mode of this world passes away. 7:32 But I desire to have you to be free from cares. He who is unmarried is concerned for the things of YaHuWaH, how he may please YaHuWaH; 7:33 but he who is married is concerned about the things of the world, how he may please his wife. 7:34 There is also a difference between a wife and a virgin. The unmarried woman cares about the things of YaHuWaH, that she may be kodesh both in body and in ruwach. But she who is married cares about the things of the world—how she may please her husband. 7:35 This I say for your own profit; not that I may ensnare you, but for that which is appropriate, and that you may attend to YaHuWaH without distraction. 7:36 But if any man thinks that he is behaving inappropriately toward his virgin, if she is past the flower of her age, and if need so requires, let him do what he desires. He doesn’t sin. Let them marry. 7:37 But he who stands steadfast in his heart, having no necessity, but has power over his own heart, to keep his own virgin, does well. 7:38 So then both he who gives his own virgin in marriage does well, and he who doesn’t give her in marriage does better. 7:39 A wife is bound by law for as long as her husband lives; but if the husband is dead, she is free to be married to whomever she desires, only in YaHuWaH. 7:40 But she is happier if she stays as she is, in my judgment, and I think that I also have YaHuWaH’s Ruwach.
8:1 Now concerning things offered to idols: We know that we all have knowledge. Knowledge puffs up, but love builds up. 8:2 But if anyone thinks that he knows anything, he doesn’t yet know as he ought to know. 8:3 But if anyone loves YaHuWaH, the same is known by Him. 8:4 Therefore concerning the eating of things offered to idols, we know that no idol is anything in the world, and that there is no other Aluahiym but One. 8:5 For though there are things that are called “gods,” whether in the heavens or on earth; as there are many “gods” and many “lords;” 8:6 yet to us there is but one Aluahiym, the Father, from Whom are all things, and we in Him; and one Master YaHuWaH, YaHuWSHuWaH haMashiyach, through Whom are all things, and we live through Him. 8:7 However, that knowledge isn’t in all men. But some, with consciousness of the idol until now, eat as of a thing offered to an idol, and their conscience, being weak, is defiled. 8:8 But food will not commend us to YaHuWaH. For neither, if we don’t eat, are we the worse; nor, if we eat, are we the better. 8:9 But be careful that by no means does this liberty of yours become a stumbling block to the weak. 8:10 For if a man sees you who have knowledge sitting in an idol’s place, won’t his conscience, if he is weak, be emboldened to eat things offered to idols? 8:11 And through your knowledge, he who is weak perishes, the brother for whose sake haMashiyach died. 8:12 Thus, sinning against the brothers, and wounding their conscience when it is weak, you sin against haMashiyach. 8:13 Therefore, if food causes my brother to stumble, I will eat no meat forevermore, that I don’t cause my brother to stumble.
9:1 Am I not free? Am I not an emissary? Haven’t I seen YaHuWSHuWaH haMashiyach, our Master? Aren’t you my work in YaHuWaH? 9:2 If to others I am not an emissary, yet at least I am to you; for you are the seal of my office of emissary in YaHuWaH. 9:3 My defense to those who examine me is this. 9:4 Have we no right to eat and to drink? 9:5 Have we no right to take along a wife who is a believer, even as the rest of the emissaries, and the brothers of the Master, and Kefa? 9:6 Or have only Barnabas and I no right to not work? 9:7 What soldier ever serves at his own expense? Who plants a vineyard, and doesn’t eat of its fruit? Or who feeds a flock, and doesn’t drink from the flock’s milk? 9:8 Do I speak these things according to the ways of men? Or doesn’t the Torah also say the same thing? 9:9 For it is written in the Torah of Moshe, “You shall not muzzle an ox while it treads out the grain.” Is it for the oxen that YaHuWaH cares, 9:10 or does he say it assuredly for our sake? Yes, it was written for our sake, because he who plows ought to plow in hope, and he who threshes in hope should partake of his hope. 9:11 If we sowed to you ruwachual things, is it a great thing if we reap your fleshly things? 9:12 If others partake of this right over you, don’t we yet more? Nevertheless we did not use this right, but we bear all things, that we may cause no hindrance to the Besorah of haMashiyach. 9:13 Don’t you know that those who serve around sacred things eat from the things of the Dwelling Place, and those who wait on the altar have their portion with the altar? 9:14 Even so YaHuWaH ordained that those who proclaim the Besorah should live from the Besorah. 9:15 But I have used none of these things, and I don’t write these things that it may be done so in my case; for I would rather die, than that anyone should make my boasting void. 9:16 For if I proclaim the Besorah, I have nothing to boast about; for necessity is laid on me; but woe is to me, if I don’t proclaim the Besorah. 9:17 For if I do this of my own will, I have a reward. But if not of my own will, I have a stewardship entrusted to me. 9:18 What then is my reward? That, when I proclaim the Besorah, I may present the Besorah of haMashiyach without charge, so as not to abuse my authority in the Besorah. 9:19 For though I was free from all, I brought myself under bondage to all, that I might gain the more. 9:20 To the Yahuwdim I became as a Yahuwdim, that I might gain Yahuwdim; to those who are under the Torah, as under the Torah, that I might gain those who are under the Torah; 9:21 to those who are without Torah, as without Torah (not being without Torah toward YaHuWaH, but under Torah toward haMashiyach), that I might win those who are without Torah. 9:22 To the weak I became as weak, that I might gain the weak. I have become all things to all men, that I may by all means save some. 9:23 Now I do this for the sake of the Besorah, that I may be a joint partaker of it. 9:24 Don’t you know that those who run in a race all run, but one receives the prize? Run like that, that you may win. 9:25 Every man who strives in the games exercises self-control in all things. Now they do it to receive a corruptible crown, but we an incorruptible. 9:26 I therefore run like that, as not uncertainly. I fight like that, as not beating the air, 9:27 but I beat my body and bring it into submission, lest by any means, after I have preached to others, I myself should be rejected.
10:1 Now I would not have you ignorant, brothers, that our fathers were all under the cloud, and all passed through the sea; 10:2 and were all immersed by Moshe in the cloud and in the sea; 10:3 and all ate the same ruwachual food; 10:4 and all drank the same ruwachual drink. For they drank of a ruwachual Rock that followed them, and the Rock was haMashiyach. 10:5 However with most of them, YaHuWaH was not well pleased, for they were overthrown in the wilderness. 10:6 Now these things were our examples, to the intent we should not lust after evil things, as they also lusted. 10:7 Neither be idolaters, as some of them were. As it is written, “The people sat down to eat and drink, and rose up to play.” 10:8 Neither let us commit sexual immorality, as some of them committed, and in one day twenty-three thousand fell. 10:9 Neither let us test haMashiyach, as some of them tested, and perished by the serpents. 10:10 Neither grumble, as some of them also grumbled, and perished by the destroyer. 10:11 Now all these things happened to them by way of example, and they were written for our admonition, on whom the ends of the ages have come. 10:12 Therefore let him who thinks he stands be careful that he doesn’t fall.
10:13 No temptation has taken you except what is common to man. YaHuWaH is trustworthy, Who will not allow you to be tempted above what you are able, but will with the temptation also make the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it. 10:14 Therefore, my beloved, flee from idolatry. 10:15 I speak as to wise men. Judge what I say. 10:16 The cup of blessing which we bless, isn’t it a sharing of the blood of haMashiyach? The bread which we break, isn’t it a sharing of the body of haMashiyach? 10:17 As therefore that bread is one, so we, who are many, are one body; for we all partake of that one bread. 10:18 Consider Yasra'el according to the flesh. Don’t those who eat the offerings participate in the altar?
10:19 What am I saying then? That a thing offered to idols is anything, or that an idol is anything? 10:20 But I say that the things which the Gentiles offer, they offer to demons, and not to YaHuWaH, and I don’t desire that you would have fellowship with demons. 10:21 You can’t both drink the cup of our Master YaHuWSHuWaH and the cup of demons. You can’t both partake of the table of our Master, and of the table of demons. 10:22 Or do we provoke Master YaHuWSHuWaH to jealousy as Yasra'el did? Are we stronger than He? 10:23 “All things are lawful for me,” but not all things are profitable. “All things are lawful for me,” but not all things build up. 10:24 Let no one seek his own, but each one his neighbor’s good. 10:25 Whatever is sold in the butcher shop, eat, asking no question for the sake of conscience, 10:26 for “the earth is YaHuWaH’s, and its fullness.” 10:27 But if one of those who don’t believe invites you to a meal, and you are inclined to go, eat whatever is set before you, asking no questions for the sake of conscience. 10:28 But if anyone says to you, “This was offered to idols,” don’t eat it for the sake of the one who told you, and for the sake of conscience. For “the earth is YaHuWaH’s, and all its fullness.” 10:29 Conscience, I say, not your own, but the other’s conscience. For why is my liberty judged by another conscience? 10:30 If I partake with thankfulness, why am I denounced for that for which I give thanks? 10:31 Whether therefore you eat, or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the esteem of YaHuWaH. 10:32 Give no occasions for stumbling, either to Yahuwdim, or to Arameans, or to the assembly of YaHuWaH; 10:33 even as I also please all men in all things, not seeking my own profit, but the profit of the many, that they may be saved.
11:1 Be imitators of me, even as I also am of haMashiyach. 11:2 Now I praise you, brothers, that you remember me in all things, and hold firm the precepts, even as I delivered them to you. 11:3 But I would have you know that the head of every man is haMashiyach, and the head of the woman is the man, and the head of haMashiyach is YaHuWaH. 11:4 Every man praying or prophesying, having his head covered, dishonors his head. 11:5 But every woman praying or prophesying with her head unveiled dishonors her head. For it is one and the same thing as if she were shaved. 11:6 For if a woman is not covered, let her also be shorn. But if it is shameful for a woman to be shorn or shaved, let her be covered. 11:7 For a man indeed ought not to have his head covered, because he is the image and esteem of YaHuWaH, but the woman is the esteem of the man. 11:8 For man is not from woman, but woman from man; 11:9 for neither was man created for the woman, but woman for the man. 11:10 For this cause the woman ought to have authority on her head, because of the Messengers.
11:11 Nevertheless, neither is the woman independent of the man, nor the man independent of the woman, in YaHuWaH. 11:12 For as woman came from man, so a man also comes through a woman; but all things are from YaHuWaH. 11:13 Judge for yourselves. Is it appropriate that a woman pray to YaHuWaH unveiled? 11:14 Doesn’t even nature itself teach you that if a man has long hair, it is a dishonor to him? 11:15 But if a woman has long hair, it is a esteem to her, for her hair is given to her for a covering. 11:16 But if any man seems to be contentious, we have no such custom, neither do YaHuWaH’s assemblies.
11:17 But in giving you this command, I don’t praise you, that you come together not for the better but for the worse. 11:18 For first of all, when you come together in the assembly, I hear that divisions exist among you, and I partly believe it. 11:19 For there also must be factions among you, that those who are approved may be revealed among you. 11:20 When therefore you assemble yourselves together, it is not the Master's supper that you eat. 11:21 For in your eating each one takes his own supper first. One is hungry, and another is drunken. 11:22 What, don’t you have houses to eat and to drink in? Or do you despise YaHuWaH’s assembly, and put them to shame who don’t have? What shall I tell you? Shall I praise you? In this I don’t praise you.
11:23 For I received from YaHuWaH that which also I delivered to you, that the Master YaHuWSHuWaH on the night in which He was betrayed took bread. 11:24 When He had given thanks, He broke it, and said, “Take, eat. This is My body, which is broken for you. Do this in memory of Me.” 11:25 In the same way He also took the cup, after supper, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in My blood. Do this, as often as you drink, in memory of Me.” 11:26 For as often as you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the Master’s death until He comes. 11:27 Therefore whoever eats this bread or drinks YaHuWaH’s cup in a way unworthy of YaHuWaH will be guilty of the body and the blood of YaHuWaH. (YaHuWaH has no blood or body except that of YaHuWSHuWaH) 11:28 But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of the bread, and drink of the cup. 11:29 For he who eats and drinks in an unworthy way eats and drinks judgment to himself, if he doesn’t discern YaHuWaH’s body (YaHuWSHuWaH/or possibly the Assembly). 11:30 For this cause many among you are weak and sickly, and not a few sleep. 11:31 For if we discerned ourselves, we wouldn’t be judged. 11:32 But when we are judged by our Master (YaHuWSHuWaH), we are really disciplined, that we may not be condemned with the world. 11:33 Therefore, my brothers, when you come together to eat, wait for one another. 11:34 But if anyone is hungry, let him eat at home, lest your coming together be for judgment. The rest I will set in order whenever I come.
12:1 Now concerning ruwachual things, brothers, I don’t want you to be ignorant. 12:2 You know that when you were heathen, you were led away to those mute idols, however you might be led. 12:3 Therefore I make known to you that no man speaking by YaHuWaH’s Ruwach says, “YaHuWSHuWaH is accursed.” No one can say, “YaHuWSHuWaH is Master YaHuWaH,” but by the Ruwach haKadosh. 12:4 Now there are various kinds of gifts, but the Ruwach is one.
12:5 There are many forms of ministrations; but Master YaHuWaH is one. 12:6 and there are many forms of power; but Aluahiym, Who works in all men, is one. 12:7 But to each man there is given a manifestation of the Ruwach, that it may help him. 12:8 For to one is given through the Ruwach the word of wisdom, and to another the word of knowledge, according to the same Ruwach; 12:9 to another persuasion, by the same Ruwach; and to another gifts of healing, by the same Ruwach; 12:10 and to another workings of miracles; and to another prophecy; and to another discerning of spirits; to another different kinds of languages; and to another the interpretation of languages. 12:11 But the one and the same Ruwach works all of these, distributing to each one separately as He desires.
12:12 For as the body is one, and has many members, and all the members of the body, being many, are one body; so also is haMashiyach. 12:13 For in one Ruwach we were all immersed into one body, whether Yahuwdim or Arameans, whether bond or free; and were all given to drink into one Ruwach. 12:14 For the body is not one member, but many. 12:15 If the foot would say, “Because I’m not the hand, I’m not part of the body,” it is not therefore not part of the body. 12:16 If the ear would say, “Because I’m not the eye, I’m not part of the body,” it’s not therefore not part of the body. 12:17 If the whole body were an eye, where would the hearing be? If the whole were hearing, where would the smelling be? 12:18 But now YaHuWaH has set the members, each one of them, in the body, just as he desired. 12:19 If they were all one member, where would the body be? 12:20 But now they are many members, but one body. 12:21 The eye can’t tell the hand, “I have no need for you,” or again the head to the feet, “I have no need for you.” 12:22 No, much rather, those members of the body which seem to be weaker are necessary. 12:23 Those parts of the body which we think to be less honorable, on those we bestow more abundant honor; and our unpresentable parts have more abundant propriety; 12:24 whereas our presentable parts have no such need. But YaHuWaH composed the body together, giving more abundant honor to the inferior part, 12:25 that there should be no division in the body, but that the members should have the same care for one another. 12:26 When one member suffers, all the members suffer with it. Or when one member is honored, all the members rejoice with it.
12:27 Now you are the body of haMashiyach, and members individually. 12:28 YaHuWaH has set some in the assembly: first emissaries, second prophets, third teachers, then workers of power, then gifts of healing, helps, governments, and various kinds of languages. 12:29 Are all emissaries? Are all prophets? Are all teachers? Are all workers of power? 12:30 Do all have gifts of healing? Do all speak with various languages? Do all interpret? 12:31 But earnestly desire the best gifts. Moreover, I show a most excellent way to you.
13:1 If I speak with the languages of men and of messengers, but don’t have love, I have become sounding brass, or a clanging cymbal. 13:2 If I have the gift of prophecy, and know all secrets and all knowledge; and if I have all persuasion, so as to remove mountains, but don’t have love, I am nothing. 13:3 If I dole out all my goods to feed the poor, and if I give my body so that I may boast, but don’t have love, it profits me nothing.
13:4 Love is patient and is kind; love doesn’t envy. Love doesn’t brag, is not proud, 13:5 doesn’t behave itself inappropriately, doesn’t seek its own way, is not provoked, takes no account of evil; 13:6 doesn’t rejoice in unrighteousness, but rejoices with the truth; 13:7 bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. 13:8 Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will be done away with. Where there are various languages, they will cease. Where there is knowledge, it will be done away with. 13:9 For we know in part, and we prophesy in part; 13:10 but when that which is complete has come, then that which is partial will be done away with. 13:11 When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I felt as a child, I thought as a child. Now that I have become a man, I have put away childish things. 13:12 For now we see in a mirror, dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part, but then I will know fully, even as I am also fully known. 13:13 But now persuasion, hope, and love remain—these three. The greatest of these is love.
14:1 Follow after love, and earnestly desire ruwachual gifts, but especially that you may prophesy. 14:2 For he who speaks in another language speaks not to men, but to YaHuWaH; for no one understands; but in the ruwach he speaks secrets. 14:3 But he who prophesies speaks to men for their edification, exhortation, and consolation. 14:4 He who speaks in another language edifies himself, but he who prophesies edifies the assembly. 14:5 Now I desire to have you all speak with other languages, but rather that you would prophesy. For he is greater who prophesies than he who speaks with other languages, unless he interprets, that the assembly may be built up.
14:6 But now, brothers, if I come to you speaking with other languages, what would I profit you, unless I speak to you either by way of revelation, or of knowledge, or of prophesying, or of teaching? 14:7 Even things without life, giving a voice, whether pipe or harp, if they didn’t give a distinction in the sounds, how would it be known what is piped or harped? 14:8 For if the shofar gave an uncertain sound, who would prepare himself for war? 14:9 So also you, unless you uttered by the tongue words easy to understand, how would it be known what is spoken? For you would be speaking into the air. 14:10 There are, it may be, so many kinds of sounds in the world, and none of them is without meaning. 14:11 If then I don’t know the meaning of the sound, I would be to him who speaks a foreigner, and he who speaks would be a foreigner to me. 14:12 So also you, since you are zealous for ruwachual gifts, seek that you may abound to the building up of the assembly. 14:13 Therefore let him who speaks in another language pray that he may interpret. 14:14 For if I pray in another language, my ruwach prays, but my understanding is unfruitful.
14:15 What is it then? I will pray with the Ruwach, and I will pray with the understanding also. I will sing with the Ruwach, and I will sing with the understanding also. 14:16 Otherwise if you bless with the Ruwach, how will he who fills the place of the unlearned say the “Amein” at your giving of thanks, seeing he doesn’t know what you say? 14:17 For you most certainly give thanks well, but the other person is not built up. 14:18 I thank YaHuWaH, I speak with other languages more than you all. 14:19 However in the assembly I would rather speak five words with my understanding, that I might instruct others also, than ten thousand words in another language.
14:20 Brothers, don’t be children in thoughts, yet in malice be babies, but in thoughts be mature men. 14:21 In the Torah it is written, “By men of strange languages and by the lips of strangers I will speak to this people. Not even thus will they hear Me, says YaHuWaH". 14:22 Therefore other languages are for a sign, not to those who believe, but to the unbelieving; but prophesying is for a sign, not to the unbelieving, but to those who believe. 14:23 If therefore the whole assembly is assembled together and all speak with other languages, and unlearned or unbelieving people come in, won’t they say, "These people are crazy? 14:24 But if all prophesy, and someone unbelieving or unlearned comes in, he is reproved by all, and he is judged by all. 14:25 And thus the secrets of his heart are revealed. So he will fall down on his face and worship YaHuWaH, declaring that YaHuWaH is among you indeed.
14:26 What is it then, brothers? When you come together, each one of you has a psalm, has a teaching, has a revelation, has another language, has an interpretation. Let all things be done to build each other up. 14:27 If any man speaks in another language, let it be two, or at the most three, and in turn; and let one interpret. 14:28 But if there is no interpreter, let him keep silent in the assembly, and let him speak to himself, and to YaHuWaH. 14:29 Let the prophets speak, two or three, and let the others discern. 14:30 But if a revelation is made to another sitting by, let the first keep silent. 14:31 For you all can prophesy one by one, that all may learn, and all may be exhorted. 14:32 The spirits of the prophets are subject to the prophets, 14:33 for YaHuWaH is not a Mighty Ones of confusion, but of shalom.
As in all the assemblies of the kodesh ones, 14:34 let your wives keep silent in the assemblies, for it has not been permitted for them to speak; but let them be in subjection, as the Torah also says. 14:35 If they desire to learn anything, let them ask tpheir own husbands at home, for it is shameful for a woman to chatter in the assembly. 14:36 What? Was it from you that the word of YaHuWaH went out? Or did it come to you alone? 14:37 If any man thinks himself to be a prophet, or ruwachual, let him recognize the things which I write to you, that they are the commandment of YaHuWaH. 14:38 But if anyone is ignorant, let him be ignorant. 14:39 Therefore, brothers, desire earnestly to prophesy, and don’t forbid speaking with other languages. 14:40 Let all things be done decently and in order.
15:1 Now I declare to you, brothers, the Besorah which I preached to you, which also you received, in which you also stand, 15:2 by which also you are saved, if you hold firmly the word which I preached to you—unless you believed in vain. 15:3 For I delivered to you first of all that which I also received: that haMashiyach died for our sins according to the Scriptures, 15:4 that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures, 15:5 and that he appeared to Kefa, then to the twelve. 15:6 Then he appeared to over five hundred brothers at once, most of whom remain until now, but some have also fallen asleep. 15:7 Then he appeared to Ya'aqob, then to all the emissaries, 15:8 and last of all, as to the child born at the wrong time, he appeared to me also. 15:9 For I am the least of the emissaries, who is not worthy to be called an emissary, because I persecuted the assembly of YaHuWaH. 15:10 But by the favor of YaHuWaH I am what I am. His favor which was bestowed on me was not futile, but I worked more than all of them; yet not I, but the favor of YaHuWaH which was with me. 15:11 Whether then it is I or they, so we proclaim, and so you believed.
15:12 Now if haMashiyach is preached, that He has been raised from the dead, how do some among you say that there is no resurrection of the dead? 15:13 But if there is no resurrection of the dead, neither has haMashiyach been raised. 15:14 If haMashiyach has not been raised, then our proclaiming is in vain, and your persuasion also is in vain. 15:15 Yes, we are found false witnesses of YaHuWaH, because we testified about YaHuWaH that He raised up haMashiyach, whom He didn’t raise up, if it is so that the dead are not raised. 15:16 For if the dead aren’t raised, neither has haMashiyach been raised. 15:17 If haMashiyach has not been raised, your persuasion is vain; you are still in your sins. 15:18 Then they also who are fallen asleep in haMashiyach have perished. 15:19 If we have only hoped in haMashiyach in this life, we are of all men most pitiable.
15:20 But now haMashiyach has been raised from the dead. He became the First Fruit of those who are asleep. 15:21 For since death came by man, the resurrection of the dead also came by man. 15:22 For as in Adam all die, so also in haMashiyach all will be made alive. 15:23 But each in his own order: haMashiyach the First Fruit, then those who are Mashiyach’s, at His coming. 15:24 And then will be the completion (of this phase), when He will deliver up the Kingdom to YaHuWaH, even the Father; when He [the Father] will have abolished all rule and all authority and power. 15:25 For He [haMashiyach] must reign until He [the Father] has put all His [Mashiyach's] enemies under His feet. 15:26 The last enemy that will be abolished is death. 15:27 For, “He [YaHuWaH] put all things in subjection under His [Mashiyach's] feet.” But when He [YaHuWaH] says, “All things are put in subjection,” it is evident that He [YaHuWaH] is excepted Who subjected all things to Him [haMashiyach]. 15:28 When all things have been subjected to Him [haMashiyach], then the Son will also Himself be subjected to Him [YaHuWaH] Who subjected all things to Him [haMashiyach], that YaHuWaH may be All in all. (in every way Supreme)
15:29 Or else what will they do who are immersed for the dead? If the dead aren’t raised at all, why then are they immersed for the dead? 15:30 Why do we also stand in jeopardy every hour? 15:31 I affirm, by the boasting in you which I have in haMashiyach YaHuWSHuWaH our Master, I die daily. 15:32 If I fought with animals at Ephesus for human purposes, what does it profit me? If the dead are not raised, then “let us eat and drink, for tomorrow we die.” 15:33 Don’t be deceived! “Evil companionships corrupt good morals.” 15:34 Wake up righteously, and don’t sin, for some have no knowledge of YaHuWaH. I say this to your shame. 15:35 But someone will say, “How are the dead raised?” and, “With what kind of body do they come?” 15:36 You foolish one, that which you yourself sow is not made alive unless it dies. 15:37 That which you sow, you don’t sow the body that will be, but a bare grain, maybe of wheat, or of some other kind. 15:38 But YaHuWaH gives it a body even as it pleased him, and to each seed a body of its own. 15:39 All flesh is not the same flesh, but there is one flesh of men, another flesh of animals, another of fish, and another of birds. 15:40 There are also celestial bodies, and terrestrial bodies; but the esteem of the celestial differs from that of the terrestrial. 15:41 There is one esteem of the sun, another esteem of the moon, and another esteem of the stars; for one star differs from another star in esteem. 15:42 So also is the resurrection of the dead. It is sown in corruption; it is raised in incorruption. 15:43 It is sown in dishonor; it is raised in esteem. It is sown in weakness; it is raised in power. 15:44 It is sown a natural body; it is raised a ruwachual body. There is a natural body and there is also a ruwachual body.
15:45 So also it is written, “The first man, Adam, became a living being.” The last Adam became a life-giving Ruwach. 15:46 However that which is ruwachual isn’t first, but that which is natural, then that which is ruwachual. 15:47 The first man is of the earth, made of dust. The second Man is Master YaHuWaH from heaven. 15:48 As is the one made of dust, such are those who are also made of dust; and as is the heavenly, such are they also that are heavenly. 15:49 As we have borne the image of the earthly, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly. 15:50 Now I say this, brothers, that flesh and blood can’t inherit the Kingdom of YaHuWaH; neither does corruption inherit incorruption.
15:51 Behold, I tell you a secret. We will not all sleep, but we will all be changed, 15:52 in a moment (indivisible atom of time), in the twinkling of an eye, at the last shofar [trump]. For the shofar will sound, and the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we will be changed. 15:53 For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. 15:54 But when this corruptible will have put on incorruption, and this mortal will have put on immortality, then what is written will happen:
“Death is swallowed up in victory.”15:55 “Death, where is your sting? Sheol, where is your victory?”
15:56 The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the Torah. 15:57 But thanks be to YaHuWaH, Who gives us the victory through our Master YaHuWSHuWaH haMashiyach. 15:58 Therefore, my beloved brothers, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in YaHuWaH’s work, because you know that your labor is not in vain in YaHuWaH.
16:1 Now concerning the collection for the kodesh ones, as I commanded the assemblies of Galatia, you do likewise. 16:2 On the first day of the week, let each one of you save [at home], as he may prosper, that no collections be made when I come. 16:3 When I arrive, I will send whoever you approve with letters to carry your gracious gift to Yahrushalum. 16:4 If it is appropriate for me to go also, they will go with me. 16:5 But I will come to you when I have passed through Macedonia, for I am passing through Macedonia. 16:6 But with you it may be that I will stay, or even winter, that you may send me on my journey wherever I go. 16:7 For I do not wish to see you now in passing, but I hope to stay a while with you, if YaHuWaH permits. 16:8 But I will stay at Ephesus until Shabu`ot [Festival of Weeks], 16:9 for a great and effective door has opened to me, and there are many adversaries. 16:10 Now if Timothy comes, see that he is with you without fear, for he does the work of YaHuWaH, as I also do. 16:11 Therefore let no one despise him. But set him forward on his journey in shalom, that he may come to me; for I expect him with the brothers.
16:12 Now concerning Apollos, the brother, I strongly urged him to come to you with the brothers; and it was not at all his desire to come now; but he will come when he has an opportunity.
16:13 Watch! Stand firm in the persuasion! Be courageous! Be strong! 16:14 Let all that you do be done in love.
16:15 Now I beg you, brothers (you know the house of Stephanas, that it is the first fruits of Achaia, and that they have set themselves to serve the kodesh ones), 16:16 that you also be in subjection to such, and to everyone who helps in the work and labors. 16:17 I rejoice at the coming of Stephanas, Fortunatus, and Achaicus; for that which was lacking on your part, they supplied. 16:18 For they refreshed my ruwach and yours. Therefore acknowledge those who are like that.
16:19 The assemblies of Asia greet you. Aquila and Priscilla greet you much in YaHuWaH, together with the assembly that is in their house. 16:20 All the brothers greet you. Greet one another with a kodesh kiss.
16:21 This greeting is by me, Sha'ul, with my own hand. 16:22 If any man doesn’t love the Master YaHuWSHuWaH haMashiyach, let him be accursed. Maran atha (Our Master comes)! 16:23 The favor of YaHuWaH YaHuWSHuWaH haMashiyach be with you. 16:24 My love to all of you in haMashiyach YaHuWSHuWaH. Amein.
