1 Corinthians 1

Paul, called to be an apostle of A1YHWH B45haMashiach through the will of God (Elohim, יהוה (YHWH)), and Sosthenes our brother,

2 Unto the assembly of God (Elohim) which is at Corinth, to them that are sanctified in YHWH haMashiach, called to be the hoy ones, with all that in every place call upon the name of YHWH haMashiach our Lord (Adonai), both theirs and ours;

3 Grace be unto you, and peace, from God (Elohim, יהוה (YHWH)) our Father, and from Lord (Adonai) YHWH haMashiach.

4 I thank my God (Elohim) always on your behalf, for the grace of God (Elohim, יהוה (YHWH)) which is given you by YHWH haMashiach;

5 That in every thing you are enriched by Him, in all utterance, and in all knowledge;

6 Even as the testimony of the Messiah (haMashiach) was confirmed in you;

7 So that you come behind in no gift; waiting for the coming of our Lord (Adonai) YHWH haMashiach;

8 Who shall also confirm you unto the end, that you may be blameless in the day of our Lord (Adonai) YHWH haMashiach.

9 God (Elohim) is faithful, by whom you were called unto the fellowship of His B47Humanity, YHWH haMashiach our Lord (Adonai).

10 Now I beseech you, brethren, by the name of our Lord (Adonai) YHWH haMashiach, that you all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you; but that you be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment.

11 For it hath been declared unto me of you, my brethren, by them who are of the house of Chloe, that there are contentions among you.

12 Now this I say, that every one of you saith, “I am of Paul;” and “I of Apollos;” and “I of Cephas (Kefa);” and “I of the Messiah (haMashiach).”

13 Is the Messiah (haMashiach) divided? Was Paul crucified for you? Or were you baptized in the name of Paul?

14 I thank God (Elohim) that I baptized none of you, but Crispus and Gaius;

15 Lest any should say that I had baptized in mine own name.

16 And I baptized also the household of Stephanas; besides, I know not whether I baptized any other.

17 For the Messiah (haMashiach) sent me not to baptize, but to preach the gospel (good news); not with wisdom of words, lest the stake of the Messiah (haMashiach) should be made of none effect.

18 For the preaching of the stake is foolishness to them that perish; but unto us who are saved it is the power of God (Elohim, יהוה (YHWH)).

19 For it is written, “I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent.” – Isa. 29:14

20 Where is the wise? Where is the scribe? Where is the disputer of this world? Hath not God (Elohim) made foolish the wisdom of this world?

21 For after that in the wisdom of God (Elohim, יהוה (YHWH)) the world by wisdom knew not God (Elohim, יהוה (YHWH)), it pleased God (Elohim, יהוה (YHWH)) by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe.

22 For the Jews (Yehudim) require a sign, and the Greeks seek after wisdom;

23 But we preach the Messiah (haMashiach) crucified, unto the Jews (Yehudim) a stumblingblock, and unto the Greeks foolishness;

24 But unto them who are called, both Jews (Yehudim) and Greeks, the Messiah (haMashiach) the power of God (Elohim, יהוה (YHWH)), and the wisdom of God (Elohim, יהוה (YHWH)).

25 Because the foolishness of God (Elohim, יהוה (YHWH)) is wiser than men; and the weakness of God (Elohim, יהוה (YHWH)) is stronger than men.

26 For you see your calling, brethren, how that not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called;

27 But God (Elohim, יהוה (YHWH)) hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God (Elohim) hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty;

28 And base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God (Elohim, יהוה (YHWH)) chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are;

29 That no flesh should glory in His presence.

30 But of Him are you in the Messiah (haMashiach) YHWH, who of God (Elohim, יהוה (YHWH)) is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption;

31 That, according as it is written, “He that glorieth, let him glory in יהוה (YHWH). – Jer. 9:24
