Paul's 1st Letter to the Corinthians

1 Kor 1

1:1 Paul, kaldet som apostel af Jesus Kristus ved Guds vilje; og Sosthenes, en bror:
1:2 til Guds kirke, som er i Korinth, til dem helligede i Kristus Jesus, kaldet til at være hellige med alle, der påberåber navn vor Herre Jesus Kristus i hvert sted af deres og af vores.
1:3 Grace og fred til dig fra Gud vor Fader og den Herre Jesus Kristus.
1:4 Jeg takker min Gud kontinuerligt for dig på grund af Guds nåde, der er blevet givet til dig i Kristus Jesus.
1:5 Ved at nåden, i alle ting, du er blevet velhavende i ham, i hvert ord og i al viden.
1:6 Også, vidnesbyrdet om Kristus er blevet styrket i dig.
1:7 På denne måde, intet mangler til dig på nogen nåde, som du venter åbenbaringen af ​​vor Herres Jesu Kristi.
1:8 Og han, for, vil styrke dig, selv indtil udgangen, uden skyld, indtil den dag af fremkomsten af ​​vor Herres Jesu Kristi.
1:9 Gud er trofast. Gennem ham, du er blevet kaldt ind i Samfund med hans Søn, Jesus Kristus, vor Herre.
1:10 Også, jeg beder dig, brødre, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that every one of you speak in the same way, and that there be no schisms among you. So may you become perfect, with the same mind and with the same judgment.
1:11 For it has been indicated to me, about you, mine brødre, by those who are with Chloes, that there are contentions among you.
1:12 Now I say this because each of you is saying: "Sikkert, Jeg hører Paulus;” “But I am of Apollo;” “Truly, I am of Cephas;” as well as: “I am of Christ.”
1:13 Has Christ been divided? Was Paul crucified for you? Or were you baptized in the name of Paul?
1:14 I give thanks to God that I have baptized none of you, except Crispus and Gaius,
1:15 lest anyone say that you have been baptized in my name.
1:16 And I also baptized the household of Stephanus. Other than these, I do not recall if I baptized any others.
1:17 For Kristus ikke sende mig for at døbe, men at evangelisere: ikke gennem visdom ord, lest Kristi kors bliver tom.
1:18 For ord korset er helt sikkert dårskab for dem, der omkom. Men til dem, der er blevet gemt, det er, til os, det er Guds kraft.
1:19 For det er blevet skrevet: "Jeg vil omkomme visdom den kloge, og jeg vil forkaste dømmekraft af forsigtig. "
1:20 Hvor er de kloge? Hvor er de skriftkloge? Hvor er sandhedssøgere i denne alder? Har ikke Gud skabte visdom denne verden i tåbelighed?
1:21 For verden ikke vidste Gud gennem visdom, også, i Guds visdom, det behagede Gud at opnå frelse troende, gennem Dårskab vores forkyndelse.
1:22 For jøderne beder om tegn, og grækerne søge visdom.
1:23 Men vi prædiker Kristus som korsfæstet. Bestemt, til jøderne, dette er en skandale, og for Hedningerne, dette er tåbelighed.
1:24 Men til dem, der er blevet kaldt, Jøder samt grækere, Kristus er den kraft af Gud og Guds visdom.
1:25 For hvad er dårskab for Gud anses klogt af mænd, og det, som er svaghed for Gud anses stærk af mænd.
1:26 Så tage sig af dit kald, brødre. For ikke mange er kloge efter kødet, ikke mange er kraftige, ikke mange er ædle.
1:27 Men Gud har valgt det tåbelige i verden, så han kan forvirre de kloge. Og Gud har valgt de svage i verden, så han kan forvirre den stærke.
1:28 Og Gud har valgt det uædle og foragtelige af verden, dem, der er ikke noget, så han kan reducere til ingenting dem, der er noget.
1:29 Altsaa, intet, der er af kødet at rose i hans øjne.
1:30 Men du er af ham i Kristus Jesus, der blev gjort af Gud til at være vores visdom og retfærdighed og helliggørelse og forløsning.
1:31 Også, på samme måde, det blev skrevet: "Hvem herligheder, at rose i Herren. "

1 Kor 2

2:1 Også, brødre, da jeg kom til dig, annoncerer for dig vidnesbyrd om Kristus, Jeg ikke bringe ophøjede ord eller ophøjede visdom.
2:2 For jeg ikke dømme mig at vide noget iblandt jer, undtagen Jesus Kristus, og ham korsfæstet.
2:3 Og jeg var med dig i svaghed, og i frygt, og med megen Bæven.
2:4 Og mine ord og prædiken var ikke de overbevisende ord menneskelig visdom, men var en manifestation af Ånden og dyd,
2:5 så din tro ikke vil være baseret på visdom mænd, men på den kraft af Guds.
2:6 Nu, we do speak wisdom among the perfect, endnu virkelig, this is not the wisdom of this age, nor that of the leaders of this age, which shall be reduced to nothing.
2:7 I stedet, we speak of the wisdom of God in a mystery which has been hidden, which God predestined before this age for our glory,
2:8 something that none of the leaders of this world have known. For if they had known it, they would never have crucified the Lord of glory.
2:9 But this is just as it has been written: “The eye has not seen, and the ear has not heard, nor has it entered into the heart of man, what things God has prepared for those who love him.”
2:10 Men Gud har åbenbaret disse ting til os gennem sin Ånd. For Ånden ransager alle ting, selv de dybder Guds.
2:11 Og hvem kan vide det, som er af en mand, undtagen den ånd, der ligger inden for den mand? Så også, ingen kender de ting, som er af Gud, undtagen Guds Ånd.
2:12 Men vi har ikke modtaget ånden i denne verden, men Ånden, som er af Gud, så vi kan forstå de ting, der er blevet givet til os af Gud.
2:13 Og vi er også tale om disse ting, ikke i de lærde ord menneskelig visdom, men i læren om Åndens, bringe åndelige ting sammen med åndelige ting.
2:14 Men dyret menneskets natur ikke opfatter disse ting, der er af Guds Ånd. For det er dårskab for ham, og han er ikke i stand til at forstå det, fordi det skal undersøges åndeligt.
2:15 Men menneskets åndelige natur dømmer alle ting, og han selv kan blive bedømt af ingen mand.
2:16 For hvem har kendt Herrens Sind, så han kan instruere ham? Men vi har Kristi sind.

1 Kor 3

3:1 Også, brødre, Jeg var ikke i stand til at tale til dig, som om at dem, der er åndelig, men snarere som om at dem, der er kødelige. For du er ligesom spædbørn i Kristus.
3:2 Jeg gav dig mælk at drikke, ikke fast føde. For du ikke var endnu i stand. og faktisk, selv nu, du ikke er i stand; for du er stadig kødelige.
3:3 Og da der stadig misundelse og strid blandt jer, er du ikke kødelige, og er du ikke vandre efter mand?
3:4 For hvis man siger, "Sikkert, Jeg hører Paulus,", Mens en anden siger, "Jeg er af Apollo,"Er du ikke mænd? Men hvad er Apollo, og hvad er Paulus?
3:5 Vi er kun ministrene fra ham i hvem du har troet, lige som Herren har givet til hver enkelt af jer.
3:6 jeg plantede, Apollo vandes, men Gud gav vækst.
3:7 Også, hverken han der planter, heller ikke den, som vander, er noget, men kun Gud, der giver væksten.
3:8 Nu er han der planter, og den, som vander, er en. Men hver skal få sin rette belønning, i henhold til hans arbejde.
3:9 For vi er Guds assistenter. Du er Guds dyrkning; du er Guds byggeri.
3:10 Ifølge Guds nåde, som er blevet givet til mig, Jeg har lagt fundamentet som en klog arkitekt. Men en anden bygger på det. Altsaa, lad hver man være forsigtig med, hvordan han bygger det.
3:11 For ingen er i stand til at lægge nogen anden fundament, i stedet for det, der er blevet lagt, som er Kristus Jesus.
3:12 Men hvis nogen bygger på dette fundament, om guld, sølv, ædelsten, træ, der, eller stubbe,
3:13 hver ens arbejde skal gøres manifest. For Herrens dag skal erklære den, fordi det vil blive afsløret af brand. Og denne ild vil teste hver enkelt arbejde, som til hvilken slags det er.
3:14 Hvis nogen arbejde, som han har bygget på det, rester, så vil han modtage en belønning.
3:15 Hvis nogen arbejde er brændt op, han vil lide sit tab, men han selv vil stadig blive gemt, men kun som gennem ild.
3:16 Ved du ikke, at du er Guds tempel, og at Guds ånd bor i dig?
3:17 Men hvis nogen overtræder Guds tempel, Gud vil ødelægge ham. For Guds tempel er helligt, og du er at Temple.
3:18 Lad ingen bedrage sig selv. Hvis nogen blandt jer synes at være kloge i denne alder, lad ham blive tåbelig, så han kan være virkelig klog.
3:19 For visdom denne verden er tåbelighed med Gud. Og så er det blevet skrevet: "Jeg vil fange den kloge i deres egen skarpsindighed."
3:20 Og igen: "Herren kender de Tanker, at de er forgæves. "
3:21 Også, lad ingen herlighed hos mænd.
3:22 For alle er dit: om Paul, eller Apollo, eller Kefas, eller verden, eller livet, eller død, eller af nærværende, eller fremtiden. Ja, alt er dit.
3:23 Men du er Kristi, og Kristus er Guds.

1 Kor 4

4:1 Derfor, lad mennesket anser os for at være Kristi tjenere og ledsagere i Guds hemmeligheder.
4:2 Her og nu, det er nødvendigt af ledsagere, at hver enkelt findes at være trofast.
4:3 Men som for mig, det er sådan en lille ting at blive dømt af dig, eller ved en alder af menneskeheden. Og heller ikke jeg dømmer mig selv.
4:4 For jeg har ikke noget på min samvittighed. Men jeg er ikke begrundet i dette. For Herren er den, som dømmer mig.
4:5 Også, vælger ikke at dømme før tiden, indtil Herren vender tilbage. Han vil belyse de skjulte ting af mørket, og han vil gøre åbenbare beslutninger hjerter. Og så hver skal have ros fra Gud.
4:6 Også, brødre, Jeg har præsenteret disse ting i mig selv og i Apollo, for eders Skyld, så du kan lære, gennem os, at ingen skal pumpes op mod en person, og for en anden, ikke ud over, hvad der er skrevet.
4:7 For hvad der adskiller dig fra en anden? Og hvad har du at du ikke har modtaget? Men hvis du har modtaget det, hvorfor har du herlighed, som om du ikke havde fået det?
4:8 Så, nu du er blevet fyldt, og nu har du været gjort velhavende, som om at regere uden os? Men jeg ville ønske, at du ville regere, så vi, for, kan regere med dig!
4:9 For jeg tror, ​​at Gud har præsenteret os som sidste apostle, som der er bestemt til døden. For vi er blevet gjort til et skue for verden, og for Angels, og for mænd.
4:10 Så vi er tåber, fordi Kristi, men du er kræsne i Kristus? Vi er svage, men du er stærk? Du er ædle, men vi er uværdig?
4:11 Selv til denne meget time, Vi hungrer og tørster, og vi er nøgne og gentagne gange slået, og vi er usikker.
4:12 Og vi arbejdskraft, arbejder med vores egne hænder. Vi er bagtalt, og så vi velsigne. Vi lider og udholde forfølgelse.
4:13 Vi er forbandet, og så vi beder. Vi er blevet som affaldet af denne verden, ligesom bopæl af alt, selv indtil nu.
4:14 Jeg skriver ikke disse ting for at forvirre dig, men for at formane dig, som mine kæreste sønner.
4:15 For du måske har ti tusinde instruktører i Kristus, men ikke så mange fædre. For i Kristus Jesus, gennem evangeliet, Jeg har født dig.
4:16 Derfor, jeg beder dig, be imitators of me, just as I am of Christ.
4:17 Af denne grund, I have sent you Timothy, who is my dearest son, and who is faithful in the Lord. He will remind you of my ways, which are in Christ Jesus, just as I teach everywhere, in every church.
4:18 Certain persons have become inflated in thinking that I would not return to you.
4:19 But I will return to you soon, if the Lord is willing. And I will consider, not the words of those who are inflated, but the virtue.
4:20 For the kingdom of God is not in words, but in virtue.
4:21 What would you prefer? Should I return to you with a rod, or with charity and a spirit of meekness?

1 Kor 5

5:1 Frem for alt andet, det bliver sagt, at der er hor blandt jer, selv utugt af en sådan art, der ikke er blandt hedningerne, så at nogen ville have hustru sin far.
5:2 Og alligevel er du oppustet, og du har i stedet ikke er bedrøvet, så han der har gjort denne ting vil blive taget væk fra din midte.
5:3 Bestemt, selvom fraværende i kroppen, Jeg er til stede i ånden. Dermed, Jeg har allerede dømt, som om jeg var til stede, ham, der har gjort dette.
5:4 På vegne af vor Herres Jesu Kristi, du er blevet samlet med min ånd, i kraft af vor Herre Jesus,
5:5 at aflevere sådan en som denne til Satan, for ødelæggelsen af ​​kødet, så ånden kan frelses i dag vor Herres Jesu Kristi.
5:6 Det er ikke godt for dig til herlighed. Ved du ikke, at en liden Surdejg korrumperer hele massen?
5:7 Rens den gamle surdej, så du kan blive den nye brød, for du er usyrede. For Kristus, vores påsken, er nu blevet immolated.
5:8 Også, lad os fest, ikke med den gamle surdej, ikke med surdej af ondskab og ondskab, men med usyrede Brød oprigtighed og sandhed.
5:9 As I have written to you in an epistle: “Do not associate with fornicators,"
5:10 certainly not with the fornicators of this world, nor with the greedy, nor with robbers, nor with the servants of idolatry. Ellers, you ought to depart from this world.
5:11 But now I have written to you: do not associate with anyone who is called a brother and yet is a fornicator, or greedy, or a servant of idolatry, or a slanderer, or inebriated, or a robber. With such a one as this, do not even take food.
5:12 For what have I to do with judging those who are outside? But do not even you yourselves judge those who are inside?
5:13 For those who are outside, God will judge. But send this evil person away from yourselves.

1 Kor 6

6:1 Hvordan er det at nogen af ​​jer, have et tvist mod en anden, ville vove at blive dømt før uretfærdige, og ikke før de hellige?
6:2 Eller ved du ikke, at de hellige fra denne alder skal bedømme det? Og hvis verden skal dømmes af dig, er du uværdig, derefter, at dømme selv de mindste sager?
6:3 Ved du ikke, at vi skal dømme engle? Hvor meget mere de ting i denne alder?
6:4 Derfor, hvis du har spørgsmål dømme om denne alder, hvorfor ikke udpege dem, der er mest foragtelige i Kirken til at dømme disse ting!
6:5 Men jeg taler, så skam dig. Er der ingen blandt jer kloge nok, så han kunne være i stand til at bedømme mellem sine brødre?
6:6 I stedet, broder har gjort mod broder i retten, og dette før utro!
6:7 Nu er der sikkert en lovovertrædelse blandt jer, ud over alt andet, når du har retssager mod hinanden. Skulle du ikke acceptere skade i stedet? Skulle du ikke udholde at blive snydt i stedet?
6:8 Men du gør det skade og snyd, og dette mod brødre!
6:9 Ved du ikke, at uretfærdige ikke vil besidde Guds rige? Må ikke vælge at vandre på afveje. For hverken utugtige, heller tjenere afgudsdyrkelse, eller ægteskabsbrydere,
6:10 eller den feminine, heller mænd, der sover med mænd, eller tyve, eller den gerrige, eller beruset, eller sladderagtige, eller griske skal have Guds rige.
6:11 Og nogle af jer var ligesom dette. Men du er blevet frikendt, men du er blevet helliggjort, men du har været berettiget: alle i navnet på vor Herre Jesus Kristus og i Ånden vor Guds.
6:12 All is lawful to me, but not all is expedient. All is lawful to me, but I will not be driven back by the authority of anyone.
6:13 Food is for the stomach, and the stomach is for food. But God shall destroy both the stomach and food. And the body is not for fornication, but rather for the Lord; and the Lord is for the body.
6:14 Sandelig, God has raised up the Lord, and he will raise us up by his power.
6:15 Do you not know that your bodies are a part of Christ? Altsaa, should I take a part of Christ and make it a part of a harlot? Lad det ikke være så!
6:16 And do you not know that whoever is joined to a harlot becomes one body? “For the two," han sagde, “shall be as one flesh.”
6:17 But whoever is joined to the Lord is one spirit.
6:18 Flee from fornication. Every sin whatsoever that a man commits is outside of the body, but whoever fornicates, sins against his own body.
6:19 Or do you not know that your bodies are the Temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have from God, and that you are not your own?
6:20 For you have been bought at a great price. Glorify and carry God in your body.

1 Kor 7

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 Men, because of fornication, let each man have his own wife, and let each woman have her own husband.
7:3 A husband should fulfill his obligation to his wife, and a wife should also act similarly toward her husband.
7:4 It is not the wife, but the husband, who has power over her body. Men, på samme måde også, it is not the husband, but the wife, who has power over his body.
7:5 Så, do not fail in your obligations to one another, except perhaps by consent, for a limited time, so that you may empty yourselves for prayer. Og så, return together again, lest Satan tempt you by means of your abstinence.
7:6 But I am saying this, neither as an indulgence, nor as a commandment.
7:7 For I would prefer it if you were all like myself. But each person has his proper gift from God: one in this way, yet another in that way.
7:8 But I say to the unmarried and to widows: It is good for them, if they would remain as they are, just as I also am.
7:9 But if they cannot restrain themselves, they should marry. For it is better to marry, than to be burned.
7:10 But to those who have been joined in matrimony, it is not I who commands you, but the Lord: a wife is not to separate from her husband.
7:11 But if she has separated from him, she must remain unmarried, or be reconciled to her husband. And a husband should not divorce his wife.
7:12 Vedrørende resten, I am speaking, not the Lord. If any brother has an unbelieving wife, and she consents to live with him, he should not divorce her.
7:13 And if any woman has an unbelieving husband, and he consents to live with her, she should not divorce her husband.
7:14 For the unbelieving husband has been sanctified through the believing wife, and the unbelieving wife has been sanctified through the believing husband. Ellers, your children would be unclean, whereas instead they are holy.
7:15 But if the unbeliever departs, let him depart. For a brother or sister cannot be made subject to servitude in this way. For God has called us to peace.
7:16 And 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 Men, let each one walk just as the Lord has distributed to him, each one just as God has called him. And thus do I teach in all the churches.
7:18 Has any circumcised man been called? Let him not cover his circumcision. Has any uncircumcised man been called? Let him not be circumcised.
7:19 Circumcision is nothing, and uncircumcision is nothing; there is only the observance of the commandments of God.
7:20 Let each and every one remain in the same calling to which he was called.
7:21 Are you a servant who has been called? Do not be concerned about it. But if you ever have the ability to be free, make use of it.
7:22 For any servant who has been called in the Lord is free in the Lord. Tilsvarende, any free person who has been called is a servant in Christ.
7:23 You have been bought with a price. Do not be willing to become the servants of men.
7:24 Brothers, let each one, in whatever state he was called, remain in that state with God.
7:25 Nu, concerning virgins, I have no commandment from the Lord. But I give counsel, as one who has obtained the mercy of the Lord, so as to be faithful.
7:26 Derfor, I consider this to be good, because of the present necessity: that it is good for a man to be such as I am.
7:27 Are you bound to a wife? Do not seek to be freed. Are you free of a wife? Do not seek a wife.
7:28 But if you take a wife, you have not sinned. And if a virgin has married, she has not sinned. Ikke desto mindre, such as these will have the tribulation of the flesh. But I would spare you from this.
7:29 Også, this is what I say, brødre: The time is short. What remains of it is such that: those who have wives should be as if they had none;
7:30 and those who weep, as though they were not weeping; and those who rejoice, as if they were not rejoicing; and those who buy, as if they possessed nothing;
7:31 and those who use the things of this world, as if they were not using them. For the figure of this world is passing away.
7:32 But I would prefer you to be without worry. Whoever is without a wife is worried about the things of the Lord, as to how he may please God.
7:33 But whoever is with a wife is worried about the things of the world, as to how he may please his wife. Også, he is divided.
7:34 And the unmarried woman and the virgin think about the things that are of the Lord, so that she may be holy in body and in spirit. But she who is married thinks about the things that are of the world, as to how she may please her husband.
7:35 Endvidere, I am saying this for your own benefit, not in order to cast a snare over you, but toward whatever is honest and whatever may provide you with the ability to be without hindrance, so as to worship the Lord.
7:36 But if any man considers himself to seem dishonorable, concerning a virgin who is of adult age, and so it ought to be, he may do as he wills. If he marries her, he does not sin.
7:37 But if he has decided firmly in his heart, and he does not have any obligation, but only the power of his free will, and if he has judged this in his heart, to let her remain a virgin, he does well.
7:38 Også, he who joins with his virgin in matrimony does well, and he who does not join with her does better.
7:39 A woman is bound under the law for as long as her husband lives. But if her husband has died, she is free. She may marry whomever she wishes, but only in the Lord.
7:40 But she will be more blessed, if she remains in this state, in accord with my counsel. And I think that I, for, have the Spirit of God.

1 Kor 8

8:1 Now concerning those things that are sacrificed to idols: we know that we all have knowledge. Knowledge puffs up, but charity builds up.
8:2 But if anyone considers himself to know anything, he does not yet know in the way that he ought to know.
8:3 For if anyone loves God, he is known by him.
8:4 But as to the foods that are immolated to idols, we know that an idol in the world is nothing, and that no one is God, except One.
8:5 For although there are things that are called gods, whether in heaven or on earth, (if one even considers there to be many gods and many lords)
8:6 yet we know that there is only one God, the Father, from whom all things are, and in whom we are, and one Lord Jesus Christ, through whom all things are, and by whom we are.
8:7 But knowledge is not in everyone. For some persons, selv nu, with consent to an idol, eat what has been sacrificed to an idol. And their conscience, being infirm, becomes polluted.
8:8 Yet food does not commend us to God. For if we eat, we will not have more, and if we do not eat, we will not have less.
8:9 But be careful not to let your liberty become a cause of sin to those who are weak.
8:10 For if anyone sees someone with knowledge sitting down to eat in idolatry, will not his own conscience, being infirm, be emboldened to eat what has been sacrificed to idols?
8:11 And should an infirm brother perish by your knowledge, even though Christ died for him?
8:12 So when you sin in this way against the brothers, and you harm their weakened conscience, then you sin against Christ.
8:13 På grund af det, if food leads my brother to sin, I will never eat meat, lest I lead my brother to sin.

1 Kor 9

9:1 Am I not free? Am I not an Apostle? Have I not seen Christ Jesus our Lord? Are you not my work in the Lord?
9:2 And if I am not an Apostle to others, yet still I am to you. For you are the seal of my Apostleship in the Lord.
9:3 My defense with those who question me is this:
9:4 Do we not have the authority to eat and to drink?
9:5 Do we not have the authority to travel around with a woman who is a sister, just as do the other Apostles, and the brothers of the Lord, and Cephas?
9:6 Or is it only myself and Barnabas who do not have the authority to act in this way?
9:7 Who has ever served as a soldier and paid his own stipend? Who plants a vineyard and does not eat from its produce? Who pastures a flock and does not drink from the milk of the flock?
9:8 Am I saying these things according to man? Or does the law not also say these things?
9:9 For it is written in the law of Moses: “You shall not bind the mouth of an ox, while it is treading out the grain.” Is God here concerned with the oxen?
9:10 Or is he saying this, faktisk, for our sake? These things were written specifically for us, because he who plows, ought to plow in hope, and he who threshes, for, in hope of receiving the produce.
9:11 If we have sown spiritual things in you, is it important if we harvest from your worldly things?
9:12 If others are sharers in this authority over you, why are we not more entitled? And yet we have not used this authority. I stedet, we bear all things, lest we give any hindrance to the Gospel of Christ.
9:13 Do you not know that those who work in the holy place eat the things that are for the holy place, and that those who serve at the altar also share with the altar?
9:14 Så, for, has the Lord ordained that those who announce the Gospel should live by the Gospel.
9:15 Yet I have used none of these things. And I have not written so that these things may be done for me. For it is better for me to die, rather than to let anyone empty out my glory.
9:16 For hvis jeg forkynde evangeliet, Det er ikke herlighed for mig. For en forpligtelse er blevet lagt på mig. Og ve mig, hvis jeg ikke forkynde evangeliet.
9:17 For hvis jeg gør det frivilligt, Jeg har en belønning. Men hvis jeg gør dette modvilligt, dispensation er givet til mig.
9:18 Og hvad, derefter, ville være min belønning? Så, når forkynde evangeliet, Jeg skulle give evangeliet uden at tage, så jeg kan ikke misbruge min autoritet i Evangeliet.
9:19 For da jeg var en fri mand for alle, Jeg gjorde mig Tjener alle, så jeg kunne vinde endnu mere.
9:20 Også, til jøderne, I became like a Jew, so that I might gain the Jews.
9:21 To those who are under the law, I became as if I were under the law, (though I was not under the law) so that I might gain those who were under the law. To those who were without the law, I became as if I were without the law, (though I was not without the law of God, being in the law of Christ) so that I might gain those who were without the law.
9:22 Til de svage, Jeg blev svag, så jeg kunde vinde de svage. Til alle, Jeg blev alle, så jeg kunne redde alle.
9:23 Og jeg gør alt for at skabe evangeliet, så jeg kan blive sin partner.
9:24 Ved du ikke, at, af dem, der kører i et løb, allesammen, sikkert, er løbere, men kun én opnår prisen. Tilsvarende, du skal køre, så du kan opnå.
9:25 Og en, der konkurrerer i en konkurrence afholder sig fra alle ting. Og de gør det, selvfølgelig, således at de kan opnå en forgængelige krone. Men vi gør det, så vi kan opnå, hvad der er ubestikkelig.
9:26 Og så kører jeg, men ikke med usikkerhed. Og så jeg kæmper, men ikke ved flailing i luften.
9:27 I stedet, Jeg tugte min krop, således at omdirigere det til trældom. Ellers, Jeg kunne prædike for andre, men bliver selv en udstødt.

1 Kor 10

10:1 For jeg vil ikke have dig til at være uvidende, brødre, that our fathers were all under the cloud, and they all went across the sea.
10:2 And in Moses, they all were baptized, in the cloud and in the sea.
10:3 And they all ate of the same spiritual food.
10:4 And they all drank of the same spiritual drink. Også, they all were drinking of the spiritual rock seeking to obtain them; and that rock was Christ.
10:5 But with most of them, God was not well-pleased. For they were struck down in the desert.
10:6 Now these things were done as an example for us, so that we might not desire evil things, just as they desired.
10:7 Også, do not take part in idolatry, as some of them did, ligesom det blev skrevet: “The people sat down to eat and to drink, and then they rose up to amuse themselves.”
10:8 And let us not commit fornication, as some of them fornicated, and so twenty-three thousand fell on one day.
10:9 And let us not tempt Christ, as some of them tempted, and so they perished by serpents.
10:10 And you should not murmur, as some of them murmured, and so they perished by the destroyer.
10:11 Now all of these things happened to them as an example, and so they have been written for our correction, because the final age has fallen upon us.
10:12 Også, whosoever considers himself to be standing, let him be careful not to fall.
10:13 Temptation should not take hold of you, except what is human. For God is faithful, and he will not permit you to be tempted beyond your ability. I stedet, he will effect his Providence, even during temptation, so that you may be able to bear it.
10:14 På grund af det, most beloved of mine, flee from the worship of idols.
10:15 Since I am speaking to those who are prudent, judge what I say for yourselves.
10:16 The cup of benediction that we bless, is it not a communion in the Blood of Christ? And the bread that we break, is it not a participation in the Body of the Lord?
10:17 Through the one bread, vi, though many, are one body: all of us who are partakers of the one bread.
10:18 Consider Israel, efter kødet. Are not those who eat from the sacrifices partakers of the altar?
10:19 Hvad er næste? Should I say that what is immolated to idols is anything? Or that the idol is anything?
10:20 But the things that the Gentiles immolate, they immolate to demons, og ikke til Gud. And I do not want you to become partakers with demons.
10:21 You cannot drink the cup of the Lord, and the cup of demons. You cannot be partakers of the table of the Lord, and partakers of the table of demons.
10:22 Or should we provoke the Lord to jealousy? Are we stronger than he is? All is lawful to me, but not all is expedient.
10:23 All is lawful to me, but not all is edifying.
10:24 Let no one seek for himself, but for others.
10:25 Whatever is sold in the market, you may eat, without asking questions for the sake of conscience.
10:26 “The earth and all its fullness belong to the Lord.”
10:27 If you are invited by any unbelievers, and you are willing to go, you may eat whatever is set before you, without asking questions for the sake of conscience.
10:28 But if anyone says, “This has been sacrificed to idols,” do not eat it, for the sake of the one who told you, and for the sake of conscience.
10:29 But I am referring to the conscience of the other person, not to yours. For why should my liberty be judged by the conscience of another?
10:30 If I partake with thanksgiving, why should I be slandered over that for which I give thanks?
10:31 Derfor, whether you eat or drink, or whatever else you may do, do everything for the glory of God.
10:32 Be without offense toward the Jews, and toward the Gentiles, and toward the Church of God,
10:33 just as I also, i alle ting, please everyone, not seeking what is best for myself, but what is best for many others, så de kan blive frelst.

1 Kor 11

11:1 Vær efterfølge mig, as I also am of Christ.
11:2 Now I praise you, brødre, because you are mindful of me in everything, in such a way as to hold to my precepts as I have handed them down to you.
11:3 So I want you to know that the head of every man is Christ. But the head of woman is man. Alligevel virkelig, the head of Christ is God.
11:4 Every man praying or prophesying with his head covered disgraces his head.
11:5 But every woman praying or prophesying with her head not covered disgraces her head. For it is the same as if her head were shaven.
11:6 So if a woman is not veiled, let her hair be cut off. Truly then, if it is a disgrace for a woman to have her hair cut off, or to have her head shaven, then she should cover her head.
11:7 Bestemt, a man ought not to cover his head, for he is the image and glory of God. But woman is the glory of man.
11:8 For man is not of woman, but woman is of man.
11:9 og faktisk, man was not created for woman, but woman was created for man.
11:10 Derfor, a woman ought to have a sign of authority on her head, because of the Angels.
11:11 Alligevel virkelig, man would not exist without woman, nor would woman exist without man, i Herren.
11:12 For just as woman came into existence from man, so also does man exist through woman. But all things are from God.
11:13 Judge for yourselves. Is it proper for a woman to pray to God unveiled?
11:14 Does not even nature herself teach you that, faktisk, if a man grows his hair long, it is a disgrace for him?
11:15 Alligevel virkelig, if a woman grows her hair long, it is a glory for her, because her hair has been given to her as a covering.
11:16 But if anyone has a mind to be contentious, we have no such custom, nor does the Church of God.
11:17 Nu jeg advare dig, uden at rose, om dette: at du samler sammen, og ikke til bedre, men værre.
11:18 Først og fremmest, faktisk, Jeg hører, at når du samler sammen i kirken, der er splittelser blandt jer. Og jeg mener, at dette, delvis.
11:19 For der skal også være kætterier, så de, der er blevet testet, kan gøres manifest blandt jer.
11:20 Også, når du samler sammen som én, er det ikke længere for at spise Herrens aftensmad.
11:21 For hver første tager sin egen aftensmad at spise. Og som et resultat, én person er sulten, mens en anden er beruset.
11:22 Har du ikke huse, til at spise og drikke? Eller har du en sådan foragt for Guds Kirke, som du ville forvirre dem, der ikke har en sådan foragt? Hvad skal jeg sige til dig? Skal jeg rose dig? Jeg er ikke rose dig i denne.
11:23 For jeg har modtaget fra Herren, hvad jeg også har leveret til dig: at Herren Jesus, på samme nat, at han blev udleveret, tog brød,
11:24 og takkede, han brød det, og nævnte: "Tag og spise. Dette er mit legeme, der skal gives op for dig. Gør dette til ihukommelse af mig. "
11:25 ligeledes også, koppen, efter at han havde spist aftensmad, siger: "Dette bæger er den nye pagt i mit blod. Gør dette, så ofte som du drikker det, til ihukommelse af mig. "
11:26 For hver gang du æde dette Brød og drikke dette bæger, du forkynder Herrens Død, indtil han vender tilbage.
11:27 Også, whoever eats this bread, or drinks from the cup of the Lord, unworthily, shall be liable of the body and blood of the Lord.
11:28 But let a man examine himself, og, in this way, let him eat from that bread, and drink from that cup.
11:29 For whoever eats and drinks unworthily, eats and drinks a sentence against himself, not discerning it to be the body of the Lord.
11:30 Som resultat, many are weak and sick among you, and many have fallen asleep.
11:31 But if we ourselves were discerning, then certainly we would not be judged.
11:32 Yet when we are judged, we are being corrected by the Lord, so that we might not be condemned along with this world.
11:33 Også, mine brødre, når du samler sammen for at spise, være opmærksomme på hinanden.
11:34 If anyone is hungry, let him eat at home, so that you may not assemble together unto judgment. As for the rest, I will set it in order when I arrive.

1 Kor 12

12:1 Now concerning spiritual things, I do not want you to be ignorant, brødre.
12:2 You know that when you were Gentiles, you approached mute idols, doing what you were led to do.
12:3 På grund af det, Jeg ville have dig vide, at ingen taler i Guds ånd udstøder en forbandelse imod Jesus. Og ingen er i stand til at sige, at Jesus er Herre, undtagen i Helligånden.
12:4 Sandelig, der er forskellige nådegaver, men den samme Ånd.
12:5 Og der er forskellige ministerier, men den samme Herre.
12:6 Og der er forskellige værker, men den samme Gud, der arbejder alt i alle.
12:7 Men, manifestation af Ånden er givet til hver enkelt mod hvad der er gavnligt.
12:8 Bestemt, to one, through the Spirit, is given words of wisdom; but to another, according to the same Spirit, words of knowledge;
12:9 to another, in the same Spirit, tro; to another, i én ånd, the gift of healing;
12:10 to another, miraculous works; to another, prophecy; to another, the discernment of spirits; to another, different kinds of languages; to another, the interpretation of words.
12:11 But one and the same Spirit works all these things, distributing to each one according to his will.
12:12 For ligesom legemet er en, og alligevel har mange dele, så alle dele af kroppen, selvom de er mange, er kun ét organ. Så også er Kristus.
12:13 og faktisk, i én Ånd, vi var alle døbte i ét legeme, om jøder eller hedninger, hvorvidt tjener eller gratis. Og vi alle drak i én Ånd.
12:14 For kroppen, for, er ikke en del, men mange.
12:15 If the foot were to say, “Because I am not the hand, I am not of the body,” would it then not be of the body?
12:16 And if the ear were to say, “Because I am not the eye, I am not of the body,” would it then not be of the body?
12:17 If the whole body were the eye, how would it hear? If the whole were hearing, how would it smell?
12:18 Men i stedet, God has placed the parts, each one of them, in the body, just as it has pleased him.
12:19 So if they were all one part, how would it be a body?
12:20 Men i stedet, there are many parts, faktisk, yet one body.
12:21 And the eye cannot say to the hand, “I have no need for your works.” And again, the head cannot say to the feet, “You are of no use to me.”
12:22 Faktisk, so much more necessary are those parts of the body which seem to be weaker.
12:23 And though we consider certain parts of the body to be less noble, we surround these with more abundant dignity, også, those parts which are less presentable end up with more abundant respect.
12:24 Men, our presentable parts have no such need, since God has tempered the body together, distributing the more abundant honor to that which has the need,
12:25 so that there might be no schism in the body, but instead the parts themselves might take care of one another.
12:26 Også, if one part suffers anything, all the parts suffer with it. Eller, if one part finds glory, all the parts rejoice with it.
12:27 Nu du er Kristi legeme, og dele ligesom en del.
12:28 og faktisk, Gud har etableret en vis orden i Kirken: første apostle, andet profeter, tredje Lærere, næste mirakel-arbejdere, og derefter nåde healing, hjælpe andre, af styrende, af forskellige slags sprog, og om fortolkningen af ​​ord.
12:29 Er alle apostle? Er alle profeter? Er alle lærere?
12:30 Er alle arbejdere mirakler? Har alle har nåde healing? Gør alle taler i tunger? Må alle tolke?
12:31 Men vær nidkær for de bedre karismer. Og jeg afsløre for dig en endnu mere fremragende måde.

1 Kor 13

13:1 If I were to speak in the language of men, or of Angels, yet not have charity, I would be like a clanging bell or a crashing cymbal.
13:2 And if I have prophecy, and learn every mystery, and obtain all knowledge, and possess all faith, so that I could move mountains, yet not have charity, then I am nothing.
13:3 And if I distribute all my goods in order to feed the poor, and if I hand over my body to be burned, yet not have charity, it offers me nothing.
13:4 Charity is patient, is kind. Charity does not envy, does not act wrongly, is not inflated.
13:5 Charity is not ambitious, does not seek for itself, is not provoked to anger, devises no evil.
13:6 Charity does not rejoice over iniquity, but rejoices in truth.
13:7 Charity suffers all, believes all, hopes all, endures all.
13:8 Charity is never torn away, even if prophecies pass away, or languages cease, or knowledge is destroyed.
13:9 For we know only in part, and we prophesy only in part.
13:10 But when the perfect arrives, the imperfect passes away.
13:11 When I was a child, I spoke like a child, I understood like a child, I thought like a child. But when I became a man, I put aside the things of a child.
13:12 Now we see through a glass darkly. But then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part, but then I shall know, even as I am known.
13:13 But for now, these three continue: tro, håb, og velgørenhed. And the greatest of these is charity.

1 Kor 14

14:1 Pursue charity. Be zealous for spiritual things, but only so that you may prophesy.
14:2 For whoever speaks in tongues, speaks not to men, men til Gud. For no one understands. Yet by the Spirit, he speaks mysteries.
14:3 But whoever prophesies speaks to men for edification and exhortation and consolation.
14:4 Whoever speaks in tongues edifies himself. But whoever prophesies edifies the Church.
14:5 Now I want you all to speak in tongues, but more so to prophesy. For he who prophesies is greater than he who speaks in tongues, unless perhaps he interprets, so that the Church may receive edification.
14:6 Men nu, brødre, if I were to come to you speaking in tongues, how would it benefit you, unless instead I speak to you in revelation, or in knowledge, or in prophecy, or in doctrine?
14:7 Even those things that are without a soul can make sounds, whether it is a wind or a stringed instrument. But unless they present a distinction within the sounds, how will it be known which is from the pipe and which is from the string?
14:8 For eksempel, if the trumpet made an uncertain sound, who would prepare himself for battle?
14:9 So it is with you also, for unless you utter with the tongue in plain speech, how will it be known what is said? For then you would be speaking into the air.
14:10 Consider that there are so many different kinds of languages in this world, and yet none is without a voice.
14:11 Derfor, if I do not understand the nature of the voice, then I shall be like a foreigner to the one with whom I am speaking; and he who is speaking will be like a foreigner to me.
14:12 So it is with you also. And since you are zealous for what is spiritual, seek the edification of the Church, so that you may abound.
14:13 Af denne grund, for, whoever speaks in tongues, let him pray for the interpretation.
14:14 Så, if I pray in tongues, my spirit prays, but my mind is without fruit.
14:15 Hvad er næste? I should pray with the spirit, and also pray with the mind. I should sing psalms with the spirit, and also recite psalms with the mind.
14:16 Ellers, if you have blessed only with the spirit, how can someone, in a state of ignorance, add an “Amen” to your blessing? For he does not know what you are saying.
14:17 In this case, sikkert, you give thanks well, but the other person is not edified.
14:18 I thank my God that I speak in tongues for all of you.
14:19 But in the Church, I prefer to speak five words from my mind, so that I may instruct others also, rather than ten thousand words in tongues.
14:20 Brothers, do not choose to have the minds of children. I stedet, be free of malice like infants, but be mature in your minds.
14:21 It is written in the law: “I will speak to this people with other tongues and other lips, and even so, they will not heed me, siger Herren. "
14:22 Også, tongues are a sign, not for believers, but for unbelievers; and prophecies are not for unbelievers, but for believers.
14:23 If then, the entire Church were to gather together as one, and if all were to speak in tongues, and then ignorant or unbelieving persons were to enter, would they not say that you were insane?
14:24 But if everyone prophesies, and one who is ignorant or unbelieving enters, he may be convinced by it all, because he understands it all.
14:25 The secrets of his heart are then made manifest. Også, falling to his face, he would adore God, proclaiming that God is truly among you.
14:26 Hvad er næste, brødre? When you gather together, each one of you may have a psalm, or a doctrine, or a revelation, or a language, or an interpretation, but let everything be done for edification.
14:27 If anyone is speaking in tongues, let there be only two, or at most three, and then in turn, and let someone interpret.
14:28 But if there is no one to interpret, he should remain silent in the church, then he may speak when he is alone with God.
14:29 And let the prophets speak, two or three, and let the others discern.
14:30 Men derefter, if something is revealed to another who is sitting, let the first one become silent.
14:31 For you are all able to prophesy one at a time, so that all may learn and all may be encouraged.
14:32 For the spirits of the prophets are subject to the prophets.
14:33 And God is not of dissension, but of peace, just as I also teach in all the churches of the saints.
14:34 Women should be silent in the churches. For it is not permitted for them to speak; men i stedet, they should be subordinate, as the law also says.
14:35 And if they want to learn anything, let them ask their husbands at home. For it is disgraceful for a woman to speak in church.
14:36 So now, did the Word of God proceed from you? Or was it sent to you alone?
14:37 If anyone seems to be a prophet or a spiritual person, he should understand these things which I am writing to you, that these things are the commandments of the Lord.
14:38 If anyone does not recognize these things, he should not be recognized.
14:39 Også, brødre, be zealous to prophesy, and do not prohibit speaking in tongues.
14:40 But let everything be done respectfully and according to proper order.

1 Kor 15

15:1 Og så jeg kundgør eder, brødre, Evangeliet, som jeg forkyndte jer, som du også har modtaget, og hvor du står.
15:2 Ved evangeliet, for, du er ved at blive gemt, hvis du holder til den forståelse, at jeg prædikede for dig, lest du mener forgæves.
15:3 For jeg afleveret til dig, først og fremmest, hvad jeg modtog også: at Kristus døde for vore synder, ifølge Skrifterne;
15:4 og at han blev begravet; og at han genopstod på tredjedagen, ifølge Skrifterne;
15:5 og at han blev set af Kefas, og efter at der ved elleve.
15:6 Næste blev han set af over fem hundrede brødre på én gang, hvoraf mange stadig, selv til nutiden, selv om nogle er faldet i søvn.
15:7 Næste, Han blev set af James, så ved alle apostlene.
15:8 Og sidst af alt, han også blev set af mig, som om jeg var en person er født på det forkerte tidspunkt.
15:9 For I am the least of the Apostles. I am not worthy to be called an Apostle, because I persecuted the Church of God.
15:10 Men, ved Guds nåde, I am what I am. And his grace in me has not been empty, since I have labored more abundantly than all of them. Yet it is not I, but the grace of God within me.
15:11 For whether it is I or they: so we preach, and so you have believed.
15:12 Nu, hvis Kristus forkyndes, at han genopstod fra de døde, hvordan er det, at nogle blandt jer sige, at der ikke er nogen opstandelse fra de døde?
15:13 For hvis der ikke er dødes opstandelse, så Kristus ikke steget.
15:14 Og hvis Kristus ikke opstanden, så er vores prædiken er ubrugelig, og din tro er også ubrugelig.
15:15 Derefter, for, vi ville blive anset for at være falske Vidner om Gud, fordi vi ville have givet vidnesbyrd imod Gud, at sige, at han havde oprejste Kristus, når han ikke havde rejst ham op, hvis, faktisk, de døde ikke stiger igen.
15:16 For hvis de døde ikke stiger igen, så hverken har Kristus opstanden.
15:17 Men hvis Kristus ikke opstanden, så vil din tro er forgæves; for du vil stadig være i jeres synder.
15:18 Derefter, for, dem, der er faldet i søvn i Kristus ville være omkommet.
15:19 Hvis vi har håb i Kristus for dette liv kun, så er vi mere elendige end alle mænd.
15:20 Men nu Kristus er steget fra de døde, som den første-frugterne af dem, der sover.
15:21 For sikkert, Døden kom gennem en mand. Også, den dødes opstandelse kom gennem en mand
15:22 Og ligesom alle dør i Adam, så også i Kristus alle vil blive bragt til live,
15:23 men hver enkelt i sin rigtige rækkefølge: Kristus, som den første-frugter, og næste, dem, der er Kristi, som har troet på hans advent.
15:24 Bagefter er slutningen, når han vil have overdraget Riget til Gud Fader, når han vil have tømt al fyrstendømme, og myndighed, og magt.
15:25 For det er nødvendigt for ham at regere, indtil han har sat alle sine fjender under hans fødder.
15:26 Endelig, fjenden kaldet døden, skal destrueres. For han har udsat alt under hans fødder. Og selv om han siger,
15:27 "Alle ting har været udsat for ham,"Uden tvivl er han ikke den ene, der har udsat alle ting til ham.
15:28 And when all things will have been subjected to him, then even the Son himself will be subjected to the One who subjected all things to him, so that God may be all in all.
15:29 Ellers, what will those who are being baptized for the dead do, if the dead do not rise again at all? Why then are they being baptized for them?
15:30 Why also do we endure trials every hour?
15:31 Daily I die, by means of your boasting, brødre: you whom I have in Christ Jesus our Lord.
15:32 Hvis, according to man, I fought with the beasts at Ephesus, how would that benefit me, if the dead do not rise again? “Let us eat and drink, for tomorrow we shall die.”
15:33 Do not be led astray. Evil communication corrupts good morals.
15:34 Vær på vagt, you just ones, and do not be willing to sin. For certain persons have an ignorance of God. I say this to you with respect.
15:35 Men nogen kan sige, "Hvordan de døde rejse igen?" eller, "Hvilken type organ skal de vende tilbage med?"
15:36 Hvor tåbeligt! Hvad du sår, kan ikke bringes tilbage til livet, medmindre det første dør.
15:37 Og hvad du sår er ikke kroppen, der vil være i fremtiden, men et nøgent korn, såsom af hvede, eller af en anden korn.
15:38 For God gives it a body according to his will, and according to each seed’s proper body.
15:39 Not all flesh is the same flesh. But one is indeed of men, another truly is of beasts, another is of birds, and another is of fish.
15:40 Også, there are heavenly bodies and earthly bodies. But while the one, sikkert, has the glory of heaven, the other has the glory of earth.
15:41 One has the brightness of the sun, another the brightness of the moon, and another the brightness of the stars. For even star differs from star in brightness.
15:42 Så det er også med den dødes opstandelse. Hvad er sået i korruption, skal stige til uforgængelighed.
15:43 Hvad er sået i vanære, skal stige til herlighed. Hvad er sået i svaghed, skal stige til magten.
15:44 Hvad er tilsået med et dyr organ skal stige med et åndeligt legeme. Hvis der er en dyrekrop, der er også et åndeligt.
15:45 Ligesom det blev skrevet, at den første mand, Adam, blev lavet med en levende sjæl, så skal den sidste Adam ske med en ånd bragt tilbage til livet.
15:46 Så hvad er, ved første, ikke åndelig, men dyr, næste bliver åndelig.
15:47 Den første mand, være jordisk, var af jorden; den anden mand, være himmelsk, vil være af himlen.
15:48 Sådanne ting som er ligesom jorden er jordiske; og sådanne ting som er ligesom himlen er himmelsk.
15:49 Også, ligesom vi har båret billedet af, hvad der er jordisk, Lad os også bære billedet af, hvad der er himmelsk.
15:50 Now I say this, brødre, because flesh and blood is not able to possess the kingdom of God; neither will what is corrupt possess what is incorrupt.
15:51 Se, I tell you a mystery. Bestemt, we shall all rise again, but we shall not all be transformed:
15:52 in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will rise up, incorruptible. And we shall be transformed.
15:53 Dermed, it is necessary for this corruptibility to be clothed with incorruptibility, and for this mortality to be clothed with immortality.
15:54 And when this mortality has been clothed with immortality, then the word that was written shall occur: “Death is swallowed up in victory.”
15:55 “O death, where is your victory? O death, where is your sting?"
15:56 Now the sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law.
15:57 But thanks be to God, who has given us victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
15:58 Også, my beloved brothers, be steadfast and unmovable, abounding always in the work of the Lord, knowing that your labor is not useless in the Lord.

1 Kor 16

16:1 Now concerning the collections which are made for the saints: just as I have arranged for the churches of Galatia, so should it also be done with you.
16:2 On the first day of the week, the Sabbath, let each one of you take from himself, setting aside what will be well-pleasing to him, so that when I arrive, the collections will not have to be made then.
16:3 And when I am present, whomever you shall approve through letters, these I shall send to bear your gifts to Jerusalem.
16:4 And if it is fitting for me to go too, they shall go with me.
16:5 Now I will visit you after I have passed through Macedonia. For I will pass through Macedonia.
16:6 And perhaps I will stay with you, and even spend the winter, so that you may lead me on my way, whenever I depart.
16:7 For I am not willing to see you now only in passing, since I hope that I may remain with you for some length of time, if the Lord permits.
16:8 But I must remain at Ephesus, even until Pentecost.
16:9 For a door, great and unavoidable, has opened to me, as well as many adversaries.
16:10 Now if Timothy arrives, see to it that he may be among you without fear. For he is doing the work of the Lord, just as I also do.
16:11 Derfor, let no one despise him. I stedet, lead him on his way in peace, so that he may come to me. For I am awaiting him with the brothers.
16:12 But concerning our brother, Apollo, I am letting you know that I pleaded with him greatly to go to you with the brothers, and clearly it was not his will to go at this time. But he will arrive when there is a space of time for him.
16:13 Vær på vagt. Stand with faith. Act manfully and be strengthened.
16:14 Let all that is yours be immersed in charity.
16:15 And I beg you, brødre: You know the house of Stephanus, and of Fortunatus, and of Achaicus, that they are the first-fruits of Achaia, and that they have dedicated themselves to the ministry of the saints.
16:16 So you should be subject also to persons such as this, as well as to all who are cooperating and working with them.
16:17 Now I rejoice in the presence of Stephanus and Fortunatus and Achaicus, because what was lacking in you, they have supplied.
16:18 For they have refreshed my spirit and yours. Derfor, recognize persons such as this.
16:19 The churches of Asia greet you. Aquila and Priscilla greet you greatly in the Lord, with the church of their household, where I also am a guest.
16:20 All the brothers greet you. Hils hinanden med et helligt Kys.
16:21 This is a greeting from my own hand, Paul.
