1:10Now I beseech you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you; but that ye be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment.
1:11For it hath been declared unto me of you, my brethren, by them which are of the house of Chloe, that there are contentions among you.
1:12Now this I say, that every one of you saith, I am of Paul; and I of Apollos; and I of Cephas; and I of Christ.
1:13Is Christ divided? was Paul crucified for you? or were ye baptized in the name of Paul?
1:14I thank God that I baptized none of you, but Crispus and Gaius;
1:15Lest any should say that I had baptized in mine own name.
1:16And I baptized also the household of Stephanas: besides, I know not whether I baptized any other.
1:17For Christ sent me not to baptize, but to preach the gospel: not with wisdom of words, lest the cross of Christ should be made of none effect.
1:18For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.
1:19For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent.
1:20Where is the wise? where is the scribe? where is the disputer of this world? hath not God made foolish the wisdom of this world?
1:21For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe.
