Nthawi zonse ndimayamika Mulungu chifukwa cha inu chifukwa cha chisomo chake chopatsidwa kwa inu mwa Khristu Yesu. Pakuti mwa Iye mwalemekezedwa mʼnjira iliyonse, mʼkuyankhula kwanu konse ndi mʼkudziwa kwanu konse, chifukwa umboni wathu pa za Khristu unatsimikizidwa mwa inu. Choncho inu simusowa mphatso yauzimu iliyonse pamene mukudikira mofunitsitsa kuti Ambuye athu Yesu Khristu avumbulutsidwe. Adzakulimbikitsani mpaka kumapeto kuti mudzakhale wopanda mlandu pa tsiku lobwera Ambuye athu Yesu Khristu. Mulungu amene wakuyitanani inu mu chiyanjano ndi Mwana wake Yesu Khristu Ambuye athu ngokhulupirika.

Kugawikana mu Mpingo

10 Ndidandaulira inu, abale, mʼdzina la Ambuye athu Yesu Khristu kuti nonsenu muvomerezane wina ndi mnzake kuti pasakhale kugawikana pakati panu ndi kuti mukhale amodzi kwenikweni mu nzeru ndi mʼmaganizo. 11 Abale anga, ena a ku nyumba ya Kloe andidziwitsa kuti pali mkangano pakati panu. 12 Chimene ndikutanthauza ndi ichi: wina amati, “Ndimatsatira Paulo,” wina, “Ndimatsatira Apolo,” wina, “Ndimatsatira Kefa,” winanso, “Ndimatsatira Khristu.”

13 Kodi Khristu wagawikana? Kodi Paulo anapachikidwa pa mtanda chifukwa cha inu? Kodi munabatizidwa mʼdzina la Paulo? 14 Ine ndikuyamika kuti sindinabatizepo mmodzi mwa inu kupatula Krispo ndi Gayo, 15 mwakuti palibe amene anganene kuti anabatizidwa mʼdzina langa. 16 (Inde, ine ndinabatizanso a mʼbanja la Stefano, koma sindikumbukira ngati ndinabatizanso wina aliyense). 17 Pakuti Khristu sananditume ine kudzabatiza, koma kudzalalikira Uthenga Wabwino, osati ndi mawu anzeru za umunthu, kuopa kuti mtanda wa Khristu ungakhale wopanda mphamvu.

Khristu ndiye Nzeru ndi Mphamvu za Mulungu

18 Pakuti uthenga wa mtanda ndi chopusa kwa iwo amene akuwonongeka, koma kwa ife amene tikupulumutsidwa uthengawu ndi mphamvu ya Mulungu. 19 Pakuti kwalembedwa kuti,

“Ine ndidzawononga nzeru za anthu anzeru;
    luntha la anthu aluntha Ine ndidzalinyoza.”

20 Munthu wanzeru ali kuti? Munthu wozama ndi maphunziro ali kuti? Munthu wodziwa zakuya zamakono ali kuti? Kodi Mulungu sanazipusitse nzeru za dziko lapansi? 21 Tsono poti mwa nzeru za Mulungu dziko lapansi mu nzeru zake silinamudziwe Iye, Mulungu amakondweretsedwa kuti kudzera mu chopusa cha zomwe zinalalikidwa apulumutse iwo amene akhulupirira. 22 Ayuda amafuna zizindikiro zodabwitsa ndipo Agriki amafunafuna nzeru, 23 koma ife timalalikira Khristu wopachikidwa. Chitsa chokhumudwitsa kwa Ayuda ndi chopusa kwa a mitundu ina. 24 Koma kwa iwo amene Mulungu anawayitana, Ayuda ndi Agriki omwe, Khristu ndi mphamvu ya Mulungu ndi nzeru za Mulungu. 25 Pakuti za Mulungu zooneka ngati zopusa, ndi za nzeru kuposa nzeru za munthu, ndipo za Mulungu zooneka ngati zofowoka, zili ndi mphamvu kuposa mphamvu za munthu.

26 Abale taganizirani mmene munalili musanayitanidwe. Si ambiri a inu munali a nzeru, si ambiri a inu munali a mphamvu zamakopedwe. Si ambiri a inu munali obadwa pa ulemerero. 27 Koma Mulungu anasankha zinthu zopusa za dziko lapansi kuti achititse manyazi anzeru. Mulungu anasankha zinthu zofowoka za dziko lapansi kuti achititse manyazi amphamvu. 28 Anasankha zinthu zapansipansi ndi zopeputsidwa za dziko la pansi lino, zinthu zimene kulibe, kuti asukulutse zimene zilipo, 29 kuti munthu asanyade pamaso pa Mulungu. 30 Nʼchifukwa cha Iye kuti inu muli mwa Khristu Yesu, amene wakhala nzeru ya kwa Mulungu, kwa ife, kunena kuti kulungama kwathu, chiyero ndi chipulumutso. 31 Choncho poti zinalembedwa kuti, “Ngati munthu akufuna kunyadira, anyadire mwa Ambuye.”

King James Version

1 Corinthians 1

1Paul called to be an apostle of Jesus Christ through the will of God, and Sosthenes our brother,

Unto the church of God which is at Corinth, to them that are sanctified in Christ Jesus, called to be saints, with all that in every place call upon the name of Jesus Christ our Lord, both their's and our's:

Grace be unto you, and peace, from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ.

I thank my God always on your behalf, for the grace of God which is given you by Jesus Christ;

That in every thing ye are enriched by him, in all utterance, and in all knowledge;

Even as the testimony of Christ was confirmed in you:

So that ye come behind in no gift; waiting for the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ:

Who shall also confirm you unto the end, that ye may be blameless in the day of our Lord Jesus Christ.

God is faithful, by whom ye were called unto the fellowship of his Son Jesus Christ our Lord.

10 Now 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.

11 For 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.

12 Now 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.

13 Is Christ divided? was Paul crucified for you? or were ye baptized in the name of Paul?

14 I thank God 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 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.

18 For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.

19 For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent.

20 Where is the wise? where is the scribe? where is the disputer of this world? hath not God made foolish the wisdom of this world?

21 For 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.

22 For the Jews require a sign, and the Greeks seek after wisdom:

23 But we preach Christ crucified, unto the Jews a stumblingblock, and unto the Greeks foolishness;

24 But unto them which are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God.

25 Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the weakness of God is stronger than men.

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

27 But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God 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 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 ye in Christ Jesus, who of God 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 the Lord.
