Paul's 1st Letter to the Corinthians

1 Kor 1

1:1 Paul, kalt til apostel av Jesus Kristus ved Guds vilje; og Sosthenes, en bror:
1:2 til Guds kirke som er i Korint, til de helliget i Kristus Jesus, kalt til å være hellige med alle som påkaller navnet på vår Herre Jesus Kristus i hvert sted i deres og vår.
1:3 Nåde og fred til deg fra Gud vår Far og fra Herren Jesus Kristus.
1:4 Jeg takker min Gud kontinuerlig for deg på grunn av den Guds nåde som er gitt dere i Kristus Jesus.
1:5 Ved at nåden, i alle ting, du har blitt rike på ham, i hvert ord og all kunnskap.
1:6 Og så, vitnesbyrdet om Kristus har blitt styrket i deg.
1:7 På denne måten, ingenting mangler til deg på noen nåde, som du avvente åpenbaring av vår Herre Jesus Kristus.
1:8 Og han, også, vil styrke deg, helt til slutten, uten skyld, inntil den dagen i advent vår Herre Jesus Kristus.
1:9 Gud er trofast. gjennom ham, du har blitt kalt inn i samfunnet med sin Sønn, Jesus Kristus, vår Herre.
1:10 Og så, jeg ber deg, Brødrene, 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 er av Paul;” “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 sendte meg for å døpe, men å evangelisere: ikke gjennom visdom av ordene, for at ikke Kristi kors blir tom.
1:18 For ordet om korset er absolutt dårskap for dem som går fortapt. Men til de som har blitt lagret, det er, til oss, det er Guds kraft.
1:19 For det har blitt skrevet: "Jeg vil omkomme visdom, og jeg vil avvise dømmekraft av forsvarlig. "
1:20 Hvor er den kloke? Hvor er de skriftlærde? Hvor er sannhetssøkere i denne alderen? Har ikke Gud gjort verdens visdom til denne verden til dårskap?
1:21 For verden ikke visste Gud gjennom visdom, og så, i Guds visdom, det behaget Gud å oppnå frelse troende, ved den dårskap vår forkynnelse.
1:22 For jødene ber om tegn, og grekere søker visdom.
1:23 Men vi forkynner Kristus korsfestet. Sikkert, for jødene, Dette er en skandale, og for hedningene, dette er dårskap.
1:24 Men til dem som har blitt kalt, Jøder så vel som grekere, Kristus er den dyd av Gud og Guds visdom.
1:25 For hva er vel en dårskap for Gud anses klok av menn, og det som er svakheten til Gud anses som sterk av menn.
1:26 Så ta vare på yrke, Brødrene. For ikke mange er klok i kjødet, Ikke mange er kraftig, Ikke mange er edel.
1:27 Men Gud har utvalgt det tåpelig av verden, slik at han kan de vise til skamme. Og Gud har utvalgt det svake i verden, slik at han kan forvirre den sterke.
1:28 Og Gud har valgt den gemen og forakte av verden, de som er ingenting, slik at han kan redusere til noe som er noe.
1:29 Så da, ingenting som er av kjød skal rose i hans øyne.
1:30 Men du er av ham i Kristus Jesus, som ble gjort av Gud til å være vår visdom og rettferdighet og helliggjørelse og forløsning.
1:31 Og så, på samme måten, det var skrevet: "Den som fryder, skal rose sig i Herren. "

1 Kor 2

2:1 Og så, Brødrene, da jeg kom til deg, annonsere for deg vitnesbyrdet om Kristus, Jeg hadde ikke med opphøyede ord eller opphøyde visdom.
2:2 For jeg ikke dømme meg selv til å vite noe blant dere, bortsett fra Jesus Kristus, og ham korsfestet.
2:3 Og jeg var hos eder i skrøpelighet, og i frykt, og med mye beven.
2:4 Og mine ord og forkynnelse var ikke overbevisende ord menneskelig visdom, men var en manifestasjon av Ånden og av dyd,
2:5 slik at din tro ikke ville være basert på menneskers visdom, men på grunn av Guds.
2:6 Nå, we do speak wisdom among the perfect, men 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 But God has revealed these things to us through his Spirit. For the Spirit searches all things, even the depths of God.
2:11 And who can know the things that are of a man, except the spirit which is within that man? Så også, no one knows the things which are of God, except the Spirit of God.
2:12 But we have not received the spirit of this world, but the Spirit who is of God, so that we may understand the things that have been given to us by God.
2:13 And we are also speaking of these things, not in the learned words of human wisdom, but in the doctrine of the Spirit, bringing spiritual things together with spiritual things.
2:14 But the animal nature of man does not perceive these things that are of the Spirit of God. For it is foolishness to him, and he is not able to understand it, because it must be examined spiritually.
2:15 But the spiritual nature of man judges all things, and he himself may be judged by no man.
2:16 For hvem har kjent Herrens sinn, so that he may instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ.

1 Kor 3

3:1 Og så, Brødrene, Jeg var ikke i stand til å snakke til deg som om de som er åndelig, men snarere som om de som er kjødelige. For du er som spedbarn i Kristus.
3:2 Jeg ga deg melk å drikke, ikke fast føde. For du var ennå ikke i stand. og ja, selv nå, du ikke er i stand; for du er fortsatt kjødelige.
3:3 Og siden det er fortsatt misunnelse og strid blant dere, er du ikke kjødelige, og er du ikke gå etter mann?
3:4 For hvis man sier, "Sikkert, Jeg er av Paul,"Mens en annen sier, "Jeg er fra Apollo,"Er du ikke menn? Men hva er Apollo, og hva er Paulus?
3:5 Vi er bare ministrene i ham som du har trodd, akkurat som Herren har gitt til hver av dere.
3:6 jeg plantet, Apollo vannes, men Gud ga vekst.
3:7 Og så, verken han som planter, eller den som vanner, er noe, men bare Gud, som gir vekst.
3:8 Nå som han planter, og den som vanner, er en. Men hver skal få sin skikkelig belønning, i henhold til hans arbeid.
3:9 For vi er Guds assistenter. Du er Guds dyrking; du er Guds bygging.
3:10 Ifølge Guds nåde, som har blitt gitt til meg, Jeg har lagt grunnlaget som en klok arkitekt. Men en annen bygger på det. Så da, la hver og en være forsiktig med hvordan han bygger på det.
3:11 For ingen er i stand til å legge noen annen grunnvoll, i stedet for det som er lagt, som er Kristus Jesus.
3:12 But if anyone builds upon this foundation, whether gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, or stubble,
3:13 each one’s work shall be made manifest. For the day of the Lord shall declare it, because it will be revealed by fire. And this fire will test each one’s work, as to what kind it is.
3:14 If anyone’s work, which he has built upon it, remains, then he will receive a reward.
3:15 If anyone’s work is burned up, he will suffer its loss, but he himself will still be saved, but only as through fire.
3:16 Vet dere ikke at dere er Guds tempel, og at Guds Ånd bor i deg?
3:17 Men hvis noen bryter Guds tempel, Gud vil ødelegge ham. For Guds tempel er hellig, og du er som Temple.
3:18 La ingen bedra seg selv. Hvis noen av dere synes å være klok i denne alderen, la ham bli tåpelig, slik at han kan bli virkelig vis.
3:19 For denne verdens visdom er dårskap for Gud. Og slik har det vært skrevet: "Jeg vil fange de vise i deres egen astuteness."
3:20 Og igjen: «Herren kjenner de vises tanker, at de er tomme. "
3:21 Og så, la ingen sig av mennesker.
3:22 For alt er ditt: enten det er Paulus, eller Apollo, eller Kefas, eller verden, eller livet, eller død, eller den foreliggende, eller fremtiden. Ja, alt er ditt.
3:23 Men du er Kristi, og Kristus er Guds.

1 Kor 4

4:1 Tilsvarende, la mannen anser oss for å være Kristi tjenere og ledsagere av Guds mysterier.
4:2 Her og nå, det er nødvendig for deltagere som hver enkelt bli funnet å være trofast.
4:3 Men som for meg, det er en liten ting å bli dømt av deg, eller i en alder av menneskeheten. Og det gjør heller ikke dømmer jeg meg selv.
4:4 For jeg har ingenting på min samvittighet. Men jeg er ikke rettferdiggjøres av dette. For Herren er den som dømmer meg.
4:5 Og så, ikke velger å dømme før tiden, inntil Herren kommer tilbake. Han vil belyse de skjulte tingene i mørket, og han vil åpenbare avgjørelser av hjerter. Og så hver og en skal ha ros av Gud.
4:6 Og så, Brødrene, Jeg har presentert disse tingene i meg selv og i Apollo, for deres skyld, slik at du kan lære, gjennom oss, at ingen skal blåses mot en person og for en annen, ikke utover det som har blitt skrevet.
4:7 For det som skiller deg fra en annen? Og hva gjør du som du ikke har mottatt? Men hvis du har mottatt det, hvorfor gjør du ære, som om du ikke hadde fått det?
4:8 Så, nå du har fylt, og nå har du gjort rike, som om å regjere uten oss? Men jeg skulle ønske at du ville regjere, slik at vi, også, kan regjere med deg!
4:9 For jeg tror at Gud har gitt oss som den siste apostlene, som de som bestemt for døden. For vi har blitt gjort om til et skuespill for verden, og for Angels, og for menn.
4:10 Så vi er idioter fordi Kristi, men du er kresne i Kristus? Vi er svake, men du er sterk? Du er edel, men vi er gemen?
4:11 Selv i denne stund, vi hungrer og tørster, og vi er nakne og gjentatte ganger slått, og vi er ustø.
4:12 Og vi arbeidskraft, arbeider med våre egne hender. Vi baktalte, og så vi velsigne. Vi lide og tåle forfølgelse.
4:13 Vi er forbannet, og så vi ber. Vi er blitt som avfall av denne verden, som bor på alt, selv før nå.
4:14 Jeg skriver ikke dette for å forvirre deg, men for å påminne deg, som mine kjære sønner.
4:15 For du kan ha ti tusen instruktører i Kristus, men ikke så mange fedre. For i Kristus Jesus, ved evangeliet, Jeg har født deg.
4:16 Derfor, jeg ber deg, be imitators of me, just as I am of Christ.
4:17 Av denne grunn, 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 Over alt annet, Det blir sagt at det er hor blant dere, selv hor av en slik type som ikke er blant hedningene, slik at noen ville ha kona til sin far.
5:2 Og likevel er du oppblåst, og du har ikke i stedet blitt bedrøvet, slik at den som har gjort dette ville bli tatt bort fra din midte.
5:3 Sikkert, men fraværende i kroppen, Jeg er til stede i ånden. Dermed, Jeg har allerede dømt, som om jeg var til stede, ham som har gjort dette.
5:4 I navnet til vår Herre Jesus Kristus, du har samlet sammen med min ånd, i kraft av vår Herre Jesus,
5:5 å overlate en slik en som denne til Satan, for kjødets ødeleggelse, slik at ånden kan bli frelst i dag vår Herre Jesus Kristus.
5:6 Det er ikke bra for deg å ære. Vet dere ikke at en liten surdeig ødelegger hele massen?
5:7 Rens ut den gamle surdeig, slik at du kan bli den nye brødet, for du er usyrede. for Kristus, vår påske, har nå blitt immolated.
5:8 Og så, la oss fryde, ikke med gammel surdeig, ikke med surdeig av ondskap, men med usyret brød oppriktighet og sannhet.
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 noen av dere, å ha en tvist mot en annen, ville våge å bli dømt før skammelig, og ikke før de hellige?
6:2 Eller vet dere ikke at de hellige fra denne alderen skal dømme det? Og hvis verden er å bli dømt av deg, er du uverdig, da, å dømme selv de minste saker?
6:3 Vet dere ikke at vi skal dømme engler? Hvor mye mer ting i denne alderen?
6:4 Derfor, hvis du har saker å bedømme om denne alders, hvorfor ikke utnevne de som er mest forakte i Kirken å dømme disse tingene!
6:5 Men jeg snakker slik til skamme dere. Er det ingen av dere kloke nok, slik at han kan være i stand til å dømme mellom sine brødre?
6:6 I stedet, bror hevder mot bror i retten, og dette før utro!
6:7 Nå er det sikkert et lovbrudd blant dere, hinsides alt annet, når du har rettssaker mot hverandre. Skulle du ikke aksepterer skade stedet? Skulle du ikke tåle å bli lurt i stedet?
6:8 Men du gjør skade og juks, og dette mot brødrene!
6:9 Vet dere ikke at skammelig ikke vil eie Guds rike? Ikke velger å vandre på villspor. For verken utuktige, eller tjenere avgudsdyrkelse, eller ekteskapsbrytere,
6:10 heller ikke feminin, eller menn som sover med menn, eller tyver, heller ikke den gjerrige, heller ikke beruset, eller baktalere, heller ikke den griske skal eie Guds rike.
6:11 Og noen av dere var sånn. Men du har blitt frifunnet, men dere er blitt helliget, men du har vært berettiget: alt i navnet til vår Herre Jesus Kristus og i vår Guds Ånd.
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 Truly, 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? Så da, should I take a part of Christ and make it a part of a harlot? La 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 sa, “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 måte 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 Når det gjelder resten, Jeg snakker, 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 derimot, 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. Tilsvar, 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 Nå, 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. Likevel, such as these will have the tribulation of the flesh. But I would spare you from this.
7:29 Og så, this is what I say, Brødrene: 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. Og så, 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 Dessuten, 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 Og så, 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, også, 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 nå, 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 grunn av dette, 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, ja, for our sake? These things were written specifically for us, because he who plows, ought to plow in hope, and he who threshes, også, 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, også, 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 om jeg forkynner evangeliet, det er ikke ære for meg. For en plikt har blitt lagt på meg. Og ve meg, hvis jeg ikke forkynner evangeliet.
9:17 For gjør jeg dette frivillig, Jeg har en belønning. Men hvis jeg gjør dette motvillig, dispensasjon er gitt til meg.
9:18 Og hva, da, ville være min lønn? Så, når forkynne evangeliet, Jeg skal gi evangeliet uten å ta, slik at jeg ikke kan misbruke min rett i evangeliet.
9:19 For da jeg var en fri mann for alle, Jeg gjorde meg til tjener for alle, slik at jeg kan få enda mer.
9:20 Og så, for jødene, 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 For de svake, Jeg ble svak, slik at jeg kunne vinne de svake. Til alle, Jeg ble tatt, slik at jeg kan lagre alle.
9:23 Og jeg gjør alt for å få til evangeliet, slik at jeg kan bli sin partner.
9:24 Vet dere ikke at, av de som løper på rennebanen, alle sammen, sikkert, er løpere, men bare en oppnår den premie. Tilsvar, du må kjøre, slik at du kan oppnå.
9:25 Og en som konkurrerer i en konkurranse avstår fra alle ting. Og de gjør dette, selvfølgelig, slik at de kan oppnå en forgjengelig krans. Men vi gjør dette, slik at vi kan oppnå det som er uforgjengelig.
9:26 Og så kjører jeg, men ikke med usikkerhet. Og så jeg kjempe, men ikke ved veivet i luften.
9:27 I stedet, Jeg tukte kroppen min, slik som å omdirigere den i trelldom. Ellers, Jeg skulle forkynne evangeliet til andre, men blir selv en utstøtt.

1 Kor 10

10:1 For jeg vil ikke at dere skal være uvitende, Brødrene, 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. Og så, 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 Og så, do not take part in idolatry, as some of them did, akkurat som det ble 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 Og så, 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 grunn av dette, 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, etter kjødet. Are not those who eat from the sacrifices partakers of the altar?
10:19 Hva er neste? 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, slik at de kan bli frelst.

1 Kor 11

11:1 Bli etterlignere av meg, as I also am of Christ.
11:2 Now I praise you, Brødrene, 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. Likevel 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 Sikkert, 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 ja, 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 Likevel 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, ja, if a man grows his hair long, it is a disgrace for him?
11:15 Likevel 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 Now I caution you, without praising, about this: that you assemble together, and not for better, but for worse.
11:18 Først av alt, ja, I hear that when you assemble together in the church, there are schisms among you. And I believe this, in part.
11:19 For there must also be heresies, so that those who have been tested may be made manifest among you.
11:20 Og så, when you assemble together as one, it is no longer in order to eat the Lord’s supper.
11:21 For each one first takes his own supper to eat. And as a result, one person is hungry, while another is inebriated.
11:22 Do you not have houses, in which to eat and drink? Or do you have such contempt for the Church of God that you would confound those who do not have such contempt? What should I say to you? Should I praise you? I am not praising you in this.
11:23 For I have received from the Lord what I have also delivered to you: that the Lord Jesus, on the same night that he was handed over, took bread,
11:24 og gi takk, han brøt det, og sa: “Take and eat. This is my body, which shall be given up for you. Do this in remembrance of me.”
11:25 Similarly also, the cup, after he had eaten supper, sier: “This cup is the new covenant in my blood. gjør dette, så ofte som du drikker det, in remembrance of me.”
11:26 For whenever you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the death of the Lord, until he returns.
11:27 Og så, 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, på denne måten, 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 et 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 Og så, mine brødre, when you assemble together to eat, be attentive to one another.
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, Brødrene.
12:2 You know that when you were Gentiles, you approached mute idols, doing what you were led to do.
12:3 På grunn av dette, Jeg vil at dere skal vite at ingen som taler i Guds Ånd ytrer en forbannelse mot Jesus. Og ingen kan si at Jesus er Herre, bortsett fra i den Hellige Ånd.
12:4 Truly, Det finnes forskjellige gunst, men Ånden er den samme.
12:5 Og det er ulike departementer, men Herren er den samme.
12:6 Og det er ulike verker, men den samme Gud, som jobber alt i alle.
12:7 derimot, manifestasjon av Ånden er gitt til hver enkelt mot hva som er gunstig.
12:8 Sikkert, 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 akkurat som kroppen er en, og likevel har mange deler, slik at alle deler av kroppen, om de er mange, er bare én kropp. Så også med Kristus.
12:13 og ja, i én Ånd, ble vi alle døpt til å være ett legeme, enten vi er jøder eller grekere, enten tjener eller fri. Og vi drakk i én Ånd.
12:14 For kroppen, også, 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, ja, 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, og så, those parts which are less presentable end up with more abundant respect.
12:24 derimot, 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 Og så, 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 Nå er du Kristi legeme, og deler som alle deler.
12:28 og ja, Gud har opprettet en viss orden i Kirken: første apostlene, andre Prophets, tredje lærere, neste mirakel-arbeidere, og deretter nåde healing, av å hjelpe andre, av styrende, av ulike typer språk, og av tolkningen av ord.
12:29 Er alle apostler? Er alle profeter? Er alle lærere?
12:30 Er alle arbeidere av mirakler? Har alle har nåde healing? Gjør alt taler i tunger? Gjør alt tolke?
12:31 Men vær ivrige for bedre karismer. Og jeg vise deg en enda mer utmerket måte.

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, håp, and charity. 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, but to God. 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 nå, Brødrene, 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 Av denne grunn, også, 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 Hva er neste? 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, sier Herren. "
14:22 Og så, 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. Og så, falling to his face, he would adore God, proclaiming that God is truly among you.
14:26 Hva er neste, Brødrene? 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 But then, 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 Og så, Brødrene, 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 gjøre kjent for deg, Brødrene, Evangeliet som jeg forkynte for dere, som du også mottatt, og på hvilken du står.
15:2 Ved evangeliet, også, du blir frelst, hvis du holder til forståelsen at jeg forkynte dere, så dere ikke tror forgjeves.
15:3 For jeg ga til deg, først av alt, det jeg også fått: at Kristus døde for våre synder, etter skriftene;
15:4 og at han ble begravet; og at han sto opp igjen på den tredje dagen, etter skriftene;
15:5 og at han ble sett av Kefas, og etter at av de elleve.
15:6 Neste ble han sett av mer enn fem hundre brødre på én gang, mange av dem er fortsatt, til den nåværende tids, selv om noen har sovnet.
15:7 Neste, Han ble sett av James, deretter av alle apostlene.
15:8 Og sist av alle, Han ble sett også av meg, som om jeg var en som er født på feil tid.
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 Nå hvis Kristus forkynnes, at han sto opp igjen fra de døde, hvordan er det at noen blant dere si at det er noen oppstandelse fra de døde?
15:13 For hvis det er noen oppstandelse fra de døde, da Kristus har ikke steget.
15:14 Og hvis Kristus ikke er stått opp, da er vårt budskap er ubrukelig, og deres tro er også ubrukelig.
15:15 Da, også, vi ville bli funnet å være falske vitner om Gud, fordi vi ville ha gitt vitnesbyrd mot Gud, sa at han hadde reist opp Kristus, når han ikke hadde reist ham opp, om, ja, de døde ikke stiger igjen.
15:16 For dersom de døde ikke stiger igjen, da verken har Kristus stått opp.
15:17 Men hvis Kristus ikke er stått opp, så din tro er forgjeves; for du vil fortsatt være i deres synder.
15:18 Da, også, dem som har sovnet inn i Kristus ville ha omkommet.
15:19 Hvis vi har håp til Kristus for dette livet bare, så vi er mer elendig enn alle mennesker.
15:20 Men nå er Kristus stått opp fra de døde, som førstegrøden av dem som sover.
15:21 For sikkert, døden kom ved et menneske. Og så, oppstandelsen fra de døde kom ved et menneske
15:22 Og akkurat som alle dør i Adam, så også i Kristus alle vil bli brakt til liv,
15:23 men hver og en i sin orden: Kristus, som førstegrøde, og neste, de som er Kristi, som har trodd på hans advent.
15:24 Etterpå er slutten, når han over riket til Gud Faderen skal ha overlevert, når han vil ha tømt all makt, og myndighet, og makt.
15:25 For er det nødvendig for ham å regjere, før han har satt alle sine fiender under sine føtter.
15:26 Endelig, fienden kalles døden skal bli ødelagt. For han har utsatt alt under hans føtter. Og selv om han sier,
15:27 "Alle ting er blitt utsatt for ham,"Uten tvil er han ikke inkludere den som har utsatt 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, Brødrene: you whom I have in Christ Jesus our Lord.
15:32 Om, 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 være årvåken, 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 noen kan si, “Hvordan gjør de døde opp igjen?”eller, “Hva slags kropp har de tilbake med?"
15:36 hvor tåpelig! Det du sår kan ikke bringes tilbake til livet, med mindre det første dør.
15:37 Og det du sår er ikke kroppen som skal være i fremtiden, men et nakent korn, slik som hvete, eller av et annet slag.
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 oppstandelsen fra de døde. Hva blir sådd i korrupsjon skal stige til uforgjengelighet.
15:43 Hva blir sådd i vanære skal stige til ære. Hva blir sådd i svakhet skal stige til makten.
15:44 Hva blir sådd med et dyr Organet skal stige med en åndelig kropp. Hvis det er en dyrekropp, Det er også en åndelig.
15:45 Akkurat som det ble skrevet at den første mannen, Adam, ble gjort med en levende sjel, så skal den siste Adam gjøres med en ånd brakt tilbake til livet.
15:46 Så hva er, først, ikke åndelig, men dyr, neste blir åndelig.
15:47 Den første mannen, være jordiske, var av jorden; den andre mannen, være himmelsk, vil være av himmelen.
15:48 Slike ting som er som jorden er jordisk; og slike ting som er som himmelen er himmelsk.
15:49 Og så, akkurat som vi har båret bildet av hva som er jordisk, la oss også bære bildet av hva som er himmelsk.
15:50 Now I say this, Brødrene, because flesh and blood is not able to possess the kingdom of God; neither will what is corrupt possess what is incorrupt.
15:51 Skue, I tell you a mystery. Sikkert, 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 død, where is your sting?"
15:56 Now the sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law.
15:57 Men Gud være takk, who has given us victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
15:58 Og så, 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 være årvåken. 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, Brødrene: 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 hverandre med et hellig kyss.
16:21 This is a greeting from my own hand, Paul.
16:22 If anyone does not love our Lord Jesus Christ, han være forbannet! Maran Atha.
16:23 Måtte nåde vår Herre Jesus Kristus være med dere alle.
16:24 My charity is with all of you in Christ Jesus. Amen.
