1 Corinthians 4 (WEBP)

[1] So let a man think of us as Christ’s servants and stewards of God’s mysteries.
[2] Here, moreover, it is required of stewards that they be found faithful.
[3] But with me it is a very small thing that I should be judged by you, or by a human court. Yes, I don’t even judge my own self.
[4] For I know nothing against myself. Yet I am not justified by this, but he who judges me is the Lord.
[5] Therefore judge nothing before the time, until the Lord comes, who will both bring to light the hidden things of darkness and reveal the counsels of the hearts. Then each man will get his praise from God.
[6] Now these things, brothers, I have in a figure transferred to myself and Apollos for your sakes, that in us you might learn not to think beyond the things which are written, that none of you be puffed up against one another.
[7] For who makes you different? And what do you have that you didn’t receive? But if you did receive it, why do you boast as if you had not received it?
[8] You are already filled. You have already become rich. You have come to reign without us. Yes, and I wish that you did reign, that we also might reign with you!
[9] For I think that God has displayed us, the apostles, last of all, like men sentenced to death. For we are made a spectacle to the world, both to angels and men.
[10] We are fools for Christ’s sake, but you are wise in Christ. We are weak, but you are strong. You have honor, but we have dishonor.
[11] Even to this present hour we hunger, thirst, are naked, are beaten, and have no certain dwelling place.
[12] We toil, working with our own hands. When people curse us, we bless. Being persecuted, we endure.
[13] Being defamed, we entreat. We are made as the filth of the world, the dirt wiped off by all, even until now.
[14] I don’t write these things to shame you, but to admonish you as my beloved children.
[15] For though you have ten thousand tutors in Christ, you don’t have many fathers. For in Christ Jesus, I became your father through the Good News.
[16] I beg you therefore, be imitators of me.
[17] Because of this I have sent Timothy to you, who is my beloved and faithful child in the Lord, who will remind you of my ways which are in Christ, even as I teach everywhere in every assembly.
[18] Now some are puffed up, as though I were not coming to you.
[19] But I will come to you shortly, if the Lord is willing. And I will know, not the word of those who are puffed up, but the power.
[20] For God’s Kingdom is not in word, but in power.
[21] What do you want? Shall I come to you with a rod, or in love and a spirit of gentleness?

King James w/Strong’s #s

1 Corinthians 4 (KJVS)

[1] Let G3049 a man G444 so G3779 account G3049 (PresMidPasDepImpr) of us G2248, as G5613 of the ministers G5257 of Christ G5547, and G2532 stewards G3623 of the mysteries G3466 of God G2316.
[2] G3739 G1161 Moreover G3063 it is required G2212 (PresPasInd) in G1722 stewards G3623, that G2443 a man G5100 be found G2147 (AorPasSubj) faithful G4103.
[3] But G1161 with me G1698 it is G2076 (PresInd) a very small thing G1519 G1646 that G2443 I should be judged G350 (AorPasSubj) of G5259 you G5216, or G2228 of G5259 man’s G442 judgment G2250: yea G235, I judge G350 (PresActInd) not G3761 mine own self G1683.
[4] For G1063 I know G4894 (PerfActInd) nothing G3762 by myself G1683; yet G235 am I G1344 not G3756 hereby G1722 G5129 justified G1344 (PerfPasInd): but G1161 he that judgeth G350 (PresActPtc) me G3165 is G2076 (PresInd) the Lord G2962.
[5] Therefore G5620 judge G2919 (PresActImpr) nothing G3361 G5100 before G4253 the time G2540, until G2193 G302 the Lord G2962 come G2064 (Aor2ActSubj), who G3739 both G2532 will bring to light G5461 (FutActInd) the hidden things G2927 of darkness G4655, and G2532 will make manifest G5319 (FutActInd) the counsels G1012 of the hearts G2588: and G2532 then G5119 shall every man G1538 have G1096 (FutMidDepInd) praise G1868 of G575 God G2316.
[6] And G1161 these things G5023, brethren G80, I have in a figure transferred G3345 (AorActInd) to G1519 myself G1683 and G2532 [to] Apollos G625 for G1223 your sakes G5209; that G2443 ye might learn G3129 (Aor2ActSubj) in G1722 us G2254 not G3361 to think G5426 (PresActInf) [of men] above G5228 that G2443 which G3739 is written G1125 (PerfPasInd), that no G3363 one G1520 of you be puffed up G5448 (PresPasSubj) for G5228 one G1520 against G2596 another G2087.
[7] For G1063 who G5101 maketh G1252 thee G4571 to differ G1252 (PresActInd) [from another]? and G1161 what G5101 hast thou G2192 (PresActInd) that G3739 thou didst G2983 not G3756 receive G2983 (Aor2ActInd)? G1161 now if G1499 thou didst receive G2983 (Aor2ActInd) [it], why G5101 dost thou glory G2744 (PresMidPasDepInd), as G5613 if thou hadst G2983 not G3361 received G2983 (Aor2ActPtc) [it]?
[8] Now G2235 ye are G2075 (PresInd) full G2880 (PerfPasPtc), now G2235 ye are rich G4147 (AorActInd), ye have reigned as kings G936 (AorActInd) without G5565 us G2257: and G2532 I would to God G3785 G1065 ye did reign G936 (AorActInd), that G2443 we G2249 also G2532 might reign with G4821 (AorActSubj) you G5213.
[9] For G1063 I think G1380 (PresActInd) that G3754 God G2316 hath set forth G584 (AorActInd) us G2248 the apostles G652 last G2078, as G5613 it were appointed to death G1935: for G3754 we are made G1096 (AorPasDepInd) a spectacle G2302 unto the world G2889, and G2532 to angels G32, and G2532 to men G444.
[10] We G2249 [are] fools G3474 for G1223 Christ’s G5547 sake G1223, but G1161 ye G5210 [are] wise G5429 in G1722 Christ G5547; we G2249 [are] weak G772, but G1161 ye G5210 [are] strong G2478; ye G5210 [are] honourable G1741, but G1161 we G2249 [are] despised G820.
[11] Even G891 unto this present G737 hour G5610 we G3983 both G2532 hunger G3983 (PresActInd), and G2532 thirst G1372 (PresActSubj), and G2532 are naked G1130 (PresActInd), and G2532 are buffeted G2852 (PresPasInd), and G2532 have no certain dwellingplace G790 (PresActInd);
[12] And G2532 labour G2872 (PresActInd), working G2038 (PresMidPasDepPtc) with our own G2398 hands G5495: being reviled G3058 (PresPasPtc), we bless G2127 (PresActInd); being persecuted G1377 (PresPasPtc), we suffer it G430 (PresMidPasDepInd):
[13] Being defamed G987 (PresPasPtc), we intreat G3870 (PresActInd): we are made G1096 (AorPasDepInd) as G5613 the filth G4027 of the world G2889, [and are] the offscouring G4067 of all things G3956 unto G2193 this day G737.
[14] I write G1125 (PresActInd) not G3756 these things G5023 to shame G1788 (PresActPtc) you G5209, but G235 as G5613 my G3450 beloved G27 sons G5043 I warn G3560 (PresActInd) [you].
[15] For G1063 though G1437 ye have G2192 (PresActSubj) ten thousand G3463 instructors G3807 in G1722 Christ G5547, yet G235 [have ye] not G3756 many G4183 fathers G3962: for G1063 in G1722 Christ G5547 Jesus G2424 I G1473 have begotten G1080 (AorActInd) you G5209 through G1223 the gospel G2098.
[16] Wherefore G3767 I beseech G3870 (PresActInd) you G5209, be ye G1096 (PresMidPasDepImpr) followers G3402 of me G3450.
[17] For G1223 this G5124 cause G1223 have I sent G3992 (AorActInd) unto you G5213 Timotheus G5095, who G3739 is G2076 (PresInd) my G3450 beloved G27 son G5043, and G2532 faithful G4103 in G1722 the Lord G2962, who G3739 shall bring G363 you G5209 into remembrance G363 (FutActInd) of my G3450 ways G3598 which G3588 be in G1722 Christ G5547, as G2531 I teach G1321 (PresActInd) every where G3837 in G1722 every G3956 church G1577.
[18] Now G1161 some G5100 are puffed up G5448 (AorPasInd), as though G5613 I G3450 would G2064 not G3361 come G2064 (PresMidPasDepPtc) to G4314 you G5209.
[19] But G1161 I will come G2064 (FutMidDepInd) to G4314 you G5209 shortly G5030, if G1437 the Lord G2962 will G2309 (AorActSubj), and G2532 will know G1097 (FutMidDepInd), not G3756 the speech G3056 of them which are puffed up G5448 (PerfPasPtc), but G235 the power G1411.
[20] For G1063 the kingdom G932 of God G2316 [is] not G3756 in G1722 word G3056, but G235 in G1722 power G1411.
[21] What G5101 will ye G2309 (PresActInd)? shall I come G2064 (Aor2ActSubj) unto G4314 you G5209 with G1722 a rod G4464, or G2228 in G1722 love G26, and G5037 [in] the spirit G4151 of meekness G4236?

Young’s Literal Translation

1 Corinthians 4 (YLT)

[1] Let a man so reckon us as officers of Christ, and stewards of the secrets of God,
[2] and as to the rest, it is required in the stewards that one may be found faithful,
[3] and to me it is for a very little thing that by you I may be judged, or by man’s day, but not even myself do I judge,
[4] for of nothing to myself have I been conscious, but not in this have I been declared right-and he who is discerning me is the Lord:
[5] so, then, nothing before the time judge ye, till the Lord may come, who will both bring to light the hidden things of the darkness, and will manifest the counsels of the hearts, and then the praise shall come to each from God.
[6] And these things, brethren, I did transfer to myself and to Apollos because of you, that in us ye may learn not to think above that which hath been written, that ye may not be puffed up one for one against the other,
[7] for who doth make thee to differ? and what hast thou, that thou didst not receive? and if thou didst also receive, why dost thou glory as not having received?
[8] Already ye are having been filled, already ye were rich, apart from us ye did reign, and I would also ye did reign, that we also with you may reign together,
[9] for I think that God did set forth us the apostles last-as appointed to death, because a spectacle we became to the world, and messengers, and men;
[10] we are fools because of Christ, and ye wise in Christ; we are ailing, and ye strong; ye glorious, and we dishonoured;
[11] unto the present hour we both hunger, and thirst, and are naked, and are buffeted, and wander about,
[12] and labour, working with our own hands; being reviled, we bless; being persecuted, we suffer;
[13] being spoken evil of, we entreat; as filth of the world we did become-of all things an offscouring-till now.
[14] Not as putting you to shame do I write these things, but as my beloved children I do admonish,
[15] for if a myriad of child-conductors ye may have in Christ, yet not many fathers; for in Christ Jesus, through the good news, I-I did beget you;
[16] I call upon you, therefore, become ye followers of me;
[17] because of this I sent to you Timotheus, who is my child, beloved and faithful in the Lord, who shall remind you of my ways in Christ, according as everywhere in every assembly I teach.
[18] And as if I were not coming unto you certain were puffed up;
[19] but I will come quickly unto you, if the Lord may will, and I will know not the word of those puffed up, but the power;
[20] for not in word is the reign of God, but in power?
[21] what do ye wish? with a rod shall I come unto you, or in love, with a spirit also of meekness?
