KJV 1COR4 with Strong's Hebrew/Greek1COR3.htm 1COR5.htm
4:1 Let [G3049] a man [G444] so [G3779] account [G3049] of us [G2248] , as [G5613] of the ministers [G5257] of Christ [G5547] , and [G2532] stewards [G3623] of the mysteries [G3466] of God [G2316] .
4:2 [G3739] [G1161] Moreover [G3063] it is required [G2212] in [G1722] stewards [G3623] , that [G2443] a man [G5100] be found [G2147] faithful [G4103] .
4:3 But [G1161] with me [G1698] it is [G2076] a very small thing [G1519] [G1646] that [G2443] I should be judged [G350] of [G5259] you [G5216] , or [G2228] of [G5259] man's [G442] judgment [G2250] : yea [G235] , I judge [G350] not [G3761] mine own self [G1683] .(judgment: Gr. day)
4:4 For [G1063] I know [G4894] nothing [G3762] by myself [G1683] ; yet [G235] am I [G1344] not [G3756] hereby [G1722] [G5129] justified [G1344] : but [G1161] he that judgeth [G350] me [G3165] is [G2076] the Lord [G2962] .(know: or, I am not conscious of any fault)
4:5 Therefore [G5620] judge [G2919] nothing [G3361] [G5100] before [G4253] the time [G2540] , until [G2193] [G302] the Lord [G2962] come [G2064] , who [G3739] both [G2532] will bring to light [G5461] the hidden things [G2927] of darkness [G4655] , and [G2532] will make manifest [G5319] the counsels [G1012] of the hearts [G2588] : and [G2532] then [G5119] shall every man [G1538] have [G1096] praise [G1868] of [G575] God [G2316] .
4:6 And [G1161] these things [G5023] , brethren [G80] , I have in a figure transferred [G3345] to [G1519] myself [G1683] and [G2532] [to] Apollos [G625] for [G1223] your sakes [G5209] ; that [G2443] ye might learn [G3129] in [G1722] us [G2254] not [G3361] to think [G5426] [of men] above [G5228] that [G2443] which [G3739] is written [G1125] , that no [G3363] one [G1520] of you be puffed up [G5448] for [G5228] one [G1520] against [G2596] another [G2087] .
4:7 For [G1063] who [G5101] maketh [G1252] thee [G4571] to differ [G1252] [from another]? and [G1161] what [G5101] hast thou [G2192] that [G3739] thou didst [G2983] not [G3756] receive [G2983] ? [G1161] now if [G1499] thou didst receive [G2983] [it], why [G5101] dost thou glory [G2744] , as [G5613] if thou hadst [G2983] not [G3361] received [G2983] [it]?(maketh: Gr. distinguisheth thee)
4:8 Now [G2235] ye are [G2075] full [G2880] , now [G2235] ye are rich [G4147] , ye have reigned as kings [G936] without [G5565] us [G2257] : and [G2532] I would to God [G3785] [G1065] ye did reign [G936] , that [G2443] we [G2249] also [G2532] might reign with [G4821] you [G5213] .
4:9 For [G1063] I think [G1380] that [G3754] God [G2316] hath set forth [G584] us [G2248] the apostles [G652] last [G2078] , as [G5613] it were appointed to death [G1935] : for [G3754] we are made [G1096] a spectacle [G2302] unto the world [G2889] , and [G2532] to angels [G32] , and [G2532] to men [G444] .(spectacle: Gr. theatre)
4:10 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] .
4:11 Even [G891] unto this present [G737] hour [G5610] we [G3983] both [G2532] hunger [G3983] , and [G2532] thirst [G1372] , and [G2532] are naked [G1130] , and [G2532] are buffeted [G2852] , and [G2532] have no certain dwellingplace [G790] ;
4:12 And [G2532] labour [G2872] , working [G2038] with our own [G2398] hands [G5495] : being reviled [G3058] , we bless [G2127] ; being persecuted [G1377] , we suffer it [G430] :
4:13 Being defamed [G987] , we intreat [G3870] : we are made [G1096] as [G5613] the filth [G4027] of the world [G2889] , [and are] the offscouring [G4067] of all things [G3956] unto [G2193] this day [G737] .
4:14 I write [G1125] not [G3756] these things [G5023] to shame [G1788] you [G5209] , but [G235] as [G5613] my [G3450] beloved [G27] sons [G5043] I warn [G3560] [you].
4:15 For [G1063] though [G1437] ye have [G2192] 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] you [G5209] through [G1223] the gospel [G2098] .
4:16 Wherefore [G3767] I beseech [G3870] you [G5209] , be ye [G1096] followers [G3402] of me [G3450] .
4:17 For [G1223] this [G5124] cause [G1223] have I sent [G3992] unto you [G5213] Timotheus [G5095] , who [G3739] is [G2076] 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] of my [G3450] ways [G3598] which [G3588] be in [G1722] Christ [G5547] , as [G2531] I teach [G1321] every where [G3837] in [G1722] every [G3956] church [G1577] .
4:18 Now [G1161] some [G5100] are puffed up [G5448] , as though [G5613] I [G3450] would [G2064] not [G3361] come [G2064] to [G4314] you [G5209] .
4:19 But [G1161] I will come [G2064] to [G4314] you [G5209] shortly [G5030] , if [G1437] the Lord [G2962] will [G2309] , and [G2532] will know [G1097] , not [G3756] the speech [G3056] of them which are puffed up [G5448] , but [G235] the power [G1411] .
4:20 For [G1063] the kingdom [G932] of God [G2316] [is] not [G3756] in [G1722] word [G3056] , but [G235] in [G1722] power [G1411] .
4:21 What [G5101] will ye [G2309] ? shall I come [G2064] unto [G4314] you [G5209] with [G1722] a rod [G4464] , or [G2228] in [G1722] love [G26] , and [G5037] [in] the spirit [G4151] of meekness [G4236] ?
