First Corinthians 12

12:1 Now concerning spiritual [gifts], brethren, I would not
 have you ignorant.
12:2 Ye know that ye were Gentiles, carried away to these dumb
 idols, even as ye 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 Spirit.
12:4 Now there are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit.
12:5 And there are differences of administrations, but the same
12:6 And there are diversities of operations, but it is the same
 God who worketh all in all.
12:7 But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man
 for profit.
12:8 For to one is given by the Spirit the word of wisdom; to
 another, the word of knowledge by the same Spirit;
12:9 To another, faith by the same Spirit; to another, the gifts
 of healing 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 languages; to another, the interpretation of languages:
12:11 But all these worketh that one and the same Spirit,
 dividing to every man severally as he will.
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.
12:13 For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body,
 whether Jews or Gentiles, whether bond or free; and have been
 all made to drink into one Spirit.
12:14 For 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?
12:16 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?
12:17 If the whole body [were] an eye, where [were] the hearing?
 If the whole [were] hearing, where [were] the smelling?
12:18 But now hath God set the members every one of them in the
 body, as it hath pleased him.
12:19 And if they were all one member, where [were] the body?
12:20 But now [are they] many members, yet but one body.
12:21 And the eye cannot say to the hand, I have no need of
 thee: 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:
12:23 And those [members] of the body, which we think to be less
 honorable, upon these we bestow more abundant honor; and our
 uncomely [parts] have more abundant comeliness.
12:24 For our comely [parts] have no need: but God hath tempered
 the body together, having given more abundant honor to that
 [part] which lacked:
12:25 That there should be no schism in the body; but [that] the
 members should have the same care one for another.
12:26 And thus if one member suffers all the members suffer with
 it; or, if one member is honored, all the members rejoice with
12:27 Now ye are the body of Christ, and members in particular.
12:28 And God hath set some in the church, first apostles,
 secondly prophets, thirdly teachers, next miracles, then gifts
 of healings, helps, governments, diversities of languages.
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 in languages?
 do all interpret?
12:31 But covet earnestly the best gifts. And yet I show to you
 a more excellent way.
