Tyndale New Testament
1Paul by vocation an apostle of Iesus Christ thorow the will of god, and brother Sostenes.
2Unto the congregation of God which is at Corinthum. To them that are sanctified in Jesus Christ, saints by calling, with all that call on the name of our Lord Iesus Christ in every place, both of theirs and of ours.
3Grace be with you and peace from God our father, and from the Lord Iesus Christ.
4I thank my god always on your behalf for the faveour of god which is given you by Iesus Christ, 5that in all things ye are made rich by him, in all speach and in all knowledge 6(even as the testimony of Iesus Christ was confirmed in you,) 7so that ye are behind in no gift, and wait for the appearing of our Lord Iesus Christ 8which shall strength you unto the end, that ye may be blameless in the day of our Lord Iesus Christ. 9God is faithful, by whom ye are called unto the fellowship of his son Iesus Christ our Lord.
10I beseech you brethren in the name of our Lord Iesus Christ, that ye all speak one thing, and that there be no dissension among you: but be ye perfect in one mind, and one meaning: 11It is shewed unto me (my brethren) of you by them that are of the house of Cloe, that there is strife among you, 12I speak of that which everyone of you sayth: I hold of Paul, Another sayth: I hold of Apollo: Another saith: I hold of Cephas: and another saith I hold of Christ. 13Is Christ divided? was Paul crucified for you? other were ye baptised in the name of Paul? 14I thank god that I christened none of you, but Crispus and Gaius, 15lest any should say that I in mine own name had baptised. 16I baptised also the house of Stephana. Furthermore know I not whether I baptised any man or no. 17For Christ sent me not to baptise, but to preach the gospell, not with wisdom of words, lest the cross of Christ should have been made of none effect.
18For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness: but unto us which are saved, it is the power of God.
19For it is written: I will destroy the wisdom of the wise and will cast away the understanding of the prudent.
20Where is the wise man? where is the scribe? where is the searcher of this world? Hath not god made the wisdom of this world foolishness? 21For when the world thorow wisdom knew not god, in the wisdom of god: it pleased god throwe foolishness of preaching to save them that believe. 22For the jews require a sign, and the greeks seek after wisdom. 23But we preach Christ crucified, unto the jews an occasion of falling and unto the greeks foolishness: 24but unto them which are called both of Jews and greeks we preach Christ the power of god, and the wisdom of god. 25For Godly foolishness is wiser than men: And godly weakness is stronger than are men.
26Brethren look on your calling how that not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many of high degree are called: 27But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world, to confound the wise. And hath chosen the weak things of the world, to confound things which are mighty. 28And vile things of the world, and things which are despised, hath god chosen yea and things of no reputation, for to bring to nought things of reputation, 29that no flesh should rejoice in his presence. 30And unto him pertain ye, in Christ Iesu, which of god is made unto us wisdom, and also righteousness, and sanctifying, and redemption. 31That according as it is written: he which rejoiceth, should rejoice in the Lord.
