The Whole Revised and Diligently Compared with
the Latin Vulgate by Bishop Richard Challoner
THE FIRST EPISTLE OF ST. PAUL TO THE CORINTHIANS
St. Paul, having planted the faithful in Corinth, where he had preached
a year and a half and converted a great many, went to Ephesus. After
being there three years, he wrote this first Epistle to the Corinthians
and sent it by the same persons, Stephanus, Fortunatus and Achaicus, who
had brought their letter to him. It was written about twenty-four years
after our Lord's Ascension and contains several matters appertaining to
faith and morals and also to ecclesiastical discipline.
1 Corinthians Chapter 1
He reproveth their dissensions about their teachers. The world was to be
saved by preaching of the cross, and not by human wisdom or eloquence.
1:1. Paul, called to be an apostle of Jesus Christ by the will of God,
and Sosthenes a brother,
1:2. To the church of God that is at Corinth, to them that are
sanctified in Christ Jesus, called to be saints, with all that invoke
the name of our Lord Jesus Christ in every place of theirs and ours.
1:3. Grace to you and peace, from God our father and from the Lord Jesus
1:4. I give thanks to my God always for you, for the grace of God that
is given you in Christ Jesus:
1:5. That in all things you are made rich in him, in all utterance and
in all knowledge;
1:6. As the testimony of Christ was confirmed in you,
1:7. So that nothing is wanting to you in any grace, waiting for the
manifestation of our Lord Jesus Christ.
1:8. Who also will confirm you unto the end without crime, in the days
of the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.
1:9. God is faithful: by whom you are called unto the fellowship of his
Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.
1:10. Now I beseech you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ,
that you all speak the same thing and that there be no schisms among
you: but that you be perfect in the same mind and in the same judgment.
1:11. For it hath been signified unto me, my brethren, of you, by them
that are of the house of Chloe, that there are contentions among you.
1:12. Now this I say, that every one of you saith: I indeed am of Paul;
and I am of Apollo; and I of Cephas; and I of Christ.
1:13. Is Christ divided? Was Paul then crucified for you? Or were you
baptized in the name of Paul?
1:14. I give God thanks, that I baptized none of you but Crispus and
1:15. Lest any should say that you were baptized in my name.
1:16. And I baptized also the household of Stephanus. Besides, I know
not whether I baptized any other.
1:17. For Christ sent me not to baptize, but to preach the gospel: not
in wisdom of speech, lest the cross of Christ should be made void.
1:18. For the word of the cross, to them indeed that perish, is
foolishness: but to them that are saved, that is, to us, it is the power
