If any man's work burn, he shall suffer loss; but he himself shall be

4 verses 16-21 have been omitted from the Mass
Wherefore I beseech you, be ye followers of me, as I also am of Christ.
this cause have I sent to you Timothy, who is my dearest son and
faithful in the Lord; who will put you in mind of my ways, which are in
Christ Jesus; as I teach everywhere in every church. 
I would not come to you, so some are puffed up. 
will come to you shortly, if the Lord will: and will know, not the
speech of them that are puffed up, but the power. 
the kingdom of God is not in speech, but in power. 
will you? shall I come to you with a rod; or in charity, and in the
spirit of meekness?
5 verses 9-13 have been omitted from the Mass
to you in an epistle, not to keep company with fornicators. 
not with the fornicators of this world, or with the covetous, or the
extortioners, or the servers of idols; otherwise you must needs go out
of this world. 
now I have written to you, not to keep company, if any man that is
named a brother, be a fornicator, or covetous, or a server of idols, or
a railer, or a drunkard, or an extortioner: with such a one, not so
much as to eat. 
what have I to do to judge them that are without? Do not you judge them
that are within? 
them that are without, God will judge. Put away the evil one from among

things are lawful to me, but I will not be brought under the power of
Meat for the belly, and the belly for the meats; but God shall destroy
both it and them:
I then take the members of Christ, and make them the members of an
harlot? God forbid. 
know you not, that he who is joined to a harlot, is made one body? For
they shall be, saith he, two in one flesh.
7 verses 1-24, 36-40 have been omitted from
concerning the thing whereof you wrote to me: It is good for a man not
to touch a woman. 
fear of fornication, let every man have his own wife, and let
every woman have her own husband.

give yourselves to prayer; and return together again, lest Satan tempt
you for your incontinency.

gift from God; one after this manner, and another after that.

continue, even as I. 
they do not contain themselves, let them marry. For it is better to
marry than to be burnt. 
them that are married, not I but the Lord commandeth, that the wife
depart not from her husband. 
if she depart, that she remain unmarried, or be reconciled to her
husband. And let not the husband put away his wife.
the rest I speak, not the Lord. If any brother hath a wife that
believeth not, and she consent to dwell with him, let him not put her
And if any woman hath a husband that believeth not, and he consent to
dwell with her, let her not put away her husband. 
the unbelieving husband is sanctified by the believing wife;
and the unbelieving wife is sanctified by the believing husband:
otherwise your children should be unclean; but now they are holy.
the unbeliever depart, let him depart. For a brother or sister is not
under servitude in such cases. But God hath called us in peace. 
how knowest thou, O wife, whether thou shalt save thy husband? Or how
knowest thou, O man, whether thou shalt save thy wife?

man called, being circumcised? let him not procure uncircumcision. Is
any man called in uncircumcision? let him not be circumcised. 
Circumcision is nothing, and uncircumcision is nothing: but the
observance of the commandments of God. 
every man abide in the same calling in which he was called. 
thou called, being a bondman? care not for it; but if thou mayest be
made free, use it rather. 
that is called in the Lord, being a bondman, is the freeman of the
Lord. Likewise he that is called, being free, is the bondman of Christ.

any man think that he seemeth dishonoured, with regard to his virgin,

he will; he sinneth not, if she marry.  For he

Therefore, both he that giveth his virgin in marriage, doth well; and
he that giveth her not, doth better.
woman is bound by the law as long as her husband liveth; but if her
husband die, she is at liberty: let her marry to whom she will; only in
the Lord. 
But more blessed shall she be, if she so remain, according to my
counsel; and I think that I also have the spirit of God.

myself was not under the law,) that I might gain them that were under

law, (whereas I was not without the law of God, but was in the law of
Christ,) that I might gain them that were without the law.
10 verses 7-9, 13, 22b-30 have been omitted

down to eat and drink, and rose up to play. 
let us commit fornication, as some of them committed fornication, and
there fell in one day three and twenty thousand.

no man seek his own, but that which is another's. 
Whatsoever is sold in the shambles, eat; asking no question for
conscience' sake. 
earth is the Lord's, and the fulness thereof. 
any of them that believe not, invite you, and you will be willing to
go; eat of any thing that is set before you, asking no question for
conscience' sake. 
if any man say: This has been sacrificed to idols, do not eat of it for
his sake that told it, and for conscience' sake. 
Conscience, I say, not thy own, but the other's. For why is my liberty
judged by another man's conscience? 
partake with thanksgiving, why am I evil spoken of, for that for which
I give thanks?
11 verses 2-16, 27-34 have been omitted from the
praise you, brethren, that in all things you are mindful of me: and
keep my ordinances as I have delivered them to you.
would have you know, that the head of every man is Christ; and the head
of the woman is the man; and the head of Christ is God. 
man praying or prophesying with his head covered, disgraceth his head. 
every woman praying or prophesying with her head not covered,
disgraceth her head: for it is all one as if she were shaven. 
a woman be not covered, let her be shorn. But if it be a shame to a
woman to be shorn or made bald, let her cover her head.
indeed ought not to cover his head, because he is the image and glory
of God; but the woman is the glory of the man. 
man is not of the woman, but the woman of the man. 
man was not created for the woman, but the woman for the man. 
Therefore ought the woman to have a power over her head,
because of the angels. 
yet neither is the man without the woman, nor the woman without the
man, in the Lord. 
as the woman is of the man, so also is the man by the woman: but all
things of God.
yourselves judge: doth it become a woman, to pray unto God uncovered? 
not even nature itself teach you, that a man indeed, if he nourish his
hair, it is a shame unto him? 
if a woman nourish her hair, it is a glory to her; for her hair is
given to her for a covering. 
if any man seem to be contentious, we have no such custom, nor the
church of God.
Therefore whosoever shall eat this bread, or drink the chalice
of the Lord unworthily, shall be guilty of the body and of the
blood of the Lord. 
let a man prove himself: and so let him eat of that bread, and drink
of the chalice. 
he that eateth and drinketh unworthily, eateth and drinketh judgment to
himself, not discerning the body of the Lord. 
Therefore are there many infirm and weak among you, and many sleep. 
if we would judge ourselves, we should not be judged. 
whilst we are judged, we are chastised by the Lord, that we be not
condemned with this world. 
Wherefore, my brethren, when you come together to eat, wait for one
If any man be hungry, let him eat at home; that you come not together

12 verses 1-3a have been omitted from the Mass

God: for no man heareth. Yet by the Spirit he speaketh mysteries. 
that prophesieth, speaketh to men unto edification, and exhortation,

He that speaketh in a tongue, edifieth himself: but he that
prophesieth, edifieth the church. 
would have you all to speak with tongues, but rather to prophesy. For
greater is he that prophesieth, than he that speaketh with tongues:
unless perhaps he interpret, that the church may receive edification.
now, brethren, if I come to you speaking with tongues, what shall I
profit you, unless I speak to you either in revelation, or in
knowledge, or in prophecy, or in doctrine?

abound unto the edifying of the church.

Wherefore tongues are for a sign, not to believers, but to unbelievers;
but prophecies not to unbelievers, but to believers.

with tongues, and there come in unlearned persons or infidels, will

unlearned person, he is convinced of all, he is judged of all. 
secrets of his heart are made manifest; and so, falling down on his

is it then, brethren? When you come together, every one of you hath a
psalm, hath a doctrine, hath a revelation, hath a tongue, hath an
interpretation: let all things be done to edification. 
any speak with a tongue, let it be by two, or at the most by three, and
