The King James Version Bible

1 Corinthians 3:12-19

  1. Now if any man build upon this foundation gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, stubble;

  2. 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.

  3. If any man's work abide which he hath built thereupon, he shall receive a reward.

  4. If any man's work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire.

  5. Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?

  6. If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are.

  7. 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.

  8. For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, He taketh the wise in their own craftiness.
