1 Corinthians 3 (WEBP)

[1] Brothers, I couldn’t speak to you as to spiritual, but as to fleshly, as to babies in Christ.
[2] I fed you with milk, not with solid food, for you weren’t yet ready. Indeed, you aren’t ready even now,
[3] for you are still fleshly. For insofar as there is jealousy, strife, and factions among you, aren’t you fleshly, and don’t you walk in the ways of men?
[4] For when one says, “I follow Paul,” and another, “I follow Apollos,” aren’t you fleshly?
[5] Who then is Apollos, and who is Paul, but servants through whom you believed, and each as the Lord gave to him?
[6] I planted. Apollos watered. But God gave the increase.
[7] So then neither he who plants is anything, nor he who waters, but God who gives the increase.
[8] Now he who plants and he who waters are the same, but each will receive his own reward according to his own labor.
[9] For we are God’s fellow workers. You are God’s farming, God’s building.
[10] According to the grace of God which was given to me, as a wise master builder I laid a foundation, and another builds on it. But let each man be careful how he builds on it.
[11] For no one can lay any other foundation than that which has been laid, which is Jesus Christ.
[12] But if anyone builds on the foundation with gold, silver, costly stones, wood, hay, or straw,
[13] each man’s work will be revealed. For the Day will declare it, because it is revealed in fire; and the fire itself will test what sort of work each man’s work is.
[14] If any man’s work remains which he built on it, he will receive a reward.
[15] If any man’s work is burned, he will suffer loss, but he himself will be saved, but as through fire.
[16] Don’t you know that you are God’s temple and that God’s Spirit lives in you?
[17] If anyone destroys God’s temple, God will destroy him; for God’s temple is holy, which you are.
[18] Let no one deceive himself. If anyone thinks that he is wise among you in this world, let him become a fool that he may become wise.
[19] For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, “He has taken the wise in their craftiness.”
[20] And again, “The Lord knows the reasoning of the wise, that it is worthless.”
[21] Therefore let no one boast in men. For all things are yours,
[22] whether Paul, or Apollos, or Cephas, or the world, or life, or death, or things present, or things to come. All are yours,
[23] and you are Christ’s, and Christ is God’s.

King James w/Strong’s #s

1 Corinthians 3 (KJVS)

[1] And I , brethren , could () not speak () unto you as unto spiritual , but as unto carnal , [even] as unto babes in Christ .
[2] I have fed () you with milk , and not with meat : for hitherto ye were not able () [to bear it], neither yet now are ye able ().
[3] For ye are () yet carnal : for whereas [there is] among you envying , and strife , and divisions , are ye () not carnal , and walk () as men ?
[4] For while one saith (), I am () of Paul ; and another , I [am] of Apollos ; are ye (PresInd) not carnal ?
[5] Who then is () Paul , and who [is] Apollos , but ministers by whom ye believed (), even as the Lord gave () to every man ?
[6] I have planted (), Apollos watered (); but God gave the increase ().
[7] So then neither is () he that planteth () any thing , neither he that watereth (); but God that giveth the increase ().
[8] Now he that planteth () and he that watereth () are () one : and every man shall receive () his own reward according to his own labour .
[9] For we are () labourers together with God : ye are () God’s husbandry , [ye are] God’s building .
[10] According to the grace of God which is given () unto me , as a wise masterbuilder , I have laid () the foundation , and another buildeth () thereon. But let every man take heed () how he buildeth () thereupon.
[11] For other foundation can () no man lay () than that is laid (), which is () Jesus Christ .
[12] Now if any man build () upon this foundation gold , silver , precious stones , wood , hay , stubble ;
[13] Every man’s work shall be made () manifest : for the day shall declare () it, because it shall be revealed () by fire ; and the fire shall try () every man’s work of what sort it is ().
[14] If any man’s work abide () which he hath built () thereupon, he shall receive () a reward .
[15] If any man’s work shall be burned (), he shall suffer loss (): but he himself shall be saved (); yet so as by fire .
[16] Know ye () not that ye are () the temple of God , and [that] the Spirit of God dwelleth () in you ?
[17] If any man defile () the temple of God , him shall God destroy (); for the temple of God is () holy , which [temple] ye are ().
[18] Let no man deceive () himself . If any man among you seemeth () to be () wise in this world , let him become () a fool , that he may be () wise .
[19] For the wisdom of this world is () foolishness with God . For it is written (), He taketh () the wise in their own craftiness .
[20] And again , The Lord knoweth () the thoughts of the wise , that they are () vain .
[21] Therefore let no man glory () in men . For all things are () yours ;
[22] Whether Paul , or Apollos , or Cephas , or the world , or life , or death , or things present (), or things to come (); all are () yours ;
[23] And ye are Christ’s ; and Christ [is] God’s .

Young’s Literal Translation

1 Corinthians 3 (YLT)

[1] And I, brethren, was not able to speak to you as to spiritual, but as to fleshly-as to babes in Christ;
[2] with milk I fed you, and not with meat, for ye were not yet able, but not even yet are ye now able,
[3] for yet ye are fleshly, for where there is among you envying, and strife, and divisions, are ye not fleshly, and in the manner of men do walk?
[4] for when one may say, ‘I, indeed, am of Paul;’ and another, ‘I-of Apollos;’ are ye not fleshly?
[5] Who, then, is Paul, and who Apollos, but ministrants through whom ye did believe, and to each as the Lord gave?
[6] I planted, Apollos watered, but God was giving growth;
[7] so that neither is he who is planting anything, nor he who is watering, but He who is giving growth-God;
[8] and he who is planting and he who is watering are one, and each his own reward shall receive, according to his own labour,
[9] for of God we are fellow-workmen; God’s tillage, God’s building ye are.
[10] According to the grace of God that was given to me, as a wise master-builder, a foundation I have laid, and another doth build on it,
[11] for other foundation no one is able to lay except that which is laid, which is Jesus the Christ;
[12] and if any one doth build upon this foundation gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, straw-
[13] of each the work shall become manifest, for the day shall declare it, because in fire it is revealed, and the work of each, what kind it is, the fire shall prove;
[14] if of any one the work doth remain that he built on it, a wage he shall receive;
[15] if of any the work is burned up, he shall suffer loss; and himself shall be saved, but so as through fire.
[16] Have ye not known that ye are a sanctuary of God, and the Spirit of God doth dwell in you?
[17] if any one the sanctuary of God doth waste, him shall God waste; for the sanctuary of God is holy, the which ye are.
[18] Let no one deceive himself; if any one doth seem to be wise among you in this age-let him become a fool, that he may become wise,
[19] for the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God, for it hath been written, ‘Who is taking the wise in their craftiness;’
[20] and again, ‘The Lord doth know the reasonings of the wise, that they are vain.’
[21] So then, let no one glory in men, for all things are yours,
[22] whether Paul, or Apollos, or Cephas, or the world, or life, or death, or things present, or things about to be-all are yours,
[23] and ye are Christ’s, and Christ is God’s.
