1 ↓Follow after charity , and desire spiritual [gifts], but rather that ye may prophesy .
2 For he that speaketh in an [unknown] tongue speaketh not unto men , but unto God : for no man understandeth [him]; howbeit in the spirit he speaketh mysteries . understandeth: Gr. heareth}
3 But he that prophesieth speaketh unto men [to] edification , and exhortation , and comfort .
4 He that speaketh in an [unknown] tongue edifieth himself ; but he that prophesieth edifieth the church .
5 I would that ye all spake with tongues , but rather that ye prophesied : for greater [is] he that prophesieth than he that speaketh with tongues , except he interpret , that the church may receive edifying .
6 Now , brethren , if I come unto you speaking with tongues , what shall I profit you , except I shall speak to you either by revelation , or by knowledge , or by prophesying , or by doctrine ?
7 And even things without life giving sound , whether pipe or harp , except they give a distinction in the sounds , how shall it be known what is piped or harped ? sounds: or, tunes}
8 For if the trumpet give an uncertain sound , who shall prepare himself to the battle ?
9 So likewise ye , except ye utter by the tongue words easy to be understood , how shall it be known what is spoken ? for ye shall speak into the air . easy...: Gr. significant}
10 There are , it may be , so many kinds of voices in the world , and none of them [is] without signification .
11 Therefore if I know not the meaning of the voice , I shall be unto him that speaketh a barbarian , and he that speaketh [shall be] a barbarian unto me .
12 Even so ye , forasmuch as ye are zealous of spiritual [gifts], seek that ye may excel to the edifying of the church . of spiritual gifts: Gr. of spirits}
13 Wherefore let him that speaketh in an [unknown] tongue pray that he may interpret .
14 For if I pray in an [unknown] tongue , my spirit prayeth , but my understanding is unfruitful .
15 What is it then ? I will pray with the spirit , and I will pray with the understanding also : I will sing with the spirit , and I will sing with the understanding also .
16 Else when thou shalt bless with the spirit , how shall he that occupieth the room of the unlearned say Amen at thy giving of thanks , seeing he understandeth not what thou sayest ?
17 For thou verily givest thanks well , but the other is not edified .
18 I thank my God , I speak with tongues more than ye all :
19 Yet in the church I had rather speak five words with my understanding , that [by my voice] I might teach others also , than ten thousand words in an [unknown] tongue .
20 Brethren , be not children in understanding : howbeit in malice be ye children , but in understanding be men . men: Gr. perfect, or, of a ripe age}
21 In the law it is written , With [men of] other tongues and other lips will I speak unto this people ; and yet for all that will they not hear me , saith the Lord .
22 Wherefore tongues are for a sign , not to them that believe , but to them that believe not : but prophesying [serveth] not for them that believe not , but for them which believe .
23 If therefore the whole church be come together into one place , and all speak with tongues , and there come in [those that are] unlearned , or unbelievers , will they not say that ye are mad ?
24 But if all prophesy , and there come in one that believeth not , or [one] unlearned , he is convinced of all , he is judged of all :
25 And thus are the secrets of his heart made manifest ; and so falling down on [his] face he will worship God , and report that God is in you of a truth .
26 How is it then , brethren ? when ye come together , every one of you hath a psalm , hath a doctrine , hath a tongue , hath a revelation , hath an interpretation . Let all things be done unto edifying .
27 If any man speak in an [unknown] tongue , [let it be] by two , or at the most [by] three , and [that] by course ; and let one interpret . two...: by two or three sentences separately}
28 But if there be no interpreter , let him keep silence in the church ; and let him speak to himself , and to God .
29 Let the prophets speak two or three , and let the other judge .
30 If [any thing] be revealed to another that sitteth by , let the first hold his peace .
31 For ye may all prophesy one by one , that all may learn , and all may be comforted .
32 And the spirits of the prophets are subject to the prophets .
33 For God is not [the author] of confusion , but of peace , as in all churches of the saints . confusion: Gr. tumult, or, unquietness}
34 Let your women keep silence in the churches : for it is not permitted unto them to speak ; but [they are commanded] to be under obedience , as also saith the law .
35 And if they will learn any thing , let them ask their husbands at home : for it is a shame for women to speak in the church .
36 What ? came the word of God out from you ? or came it unto you only ?
37 If any man think himself to be a prophet , or spiritual , let him acknowledge that the things that I write unto you are the commandments of the Lord .
38 But if any man be ignorant , let him be ignorant .
39 Wherefore , brethren , covet to prophesy , and forbid not to speak with tongues .
40 Let all things be done decently and in order .
