1 Corinthians 1

Appeal to Unity

1Paul, called as an apostle of Jesus Christ [a]by the will of God, and Sosthenes our brother,

To the church of God which is at Corinth, to those who have been sanctified in Christ Jesus, [b]saints by calling, with all who in every place call on the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, their Lord and ours:

Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.

I thank [c]my God always concerning you for the grace of God which was given you in Christ Jesus, that in everything you were enriched in Him, in all speech and all knowledge, even as the testimony concerning Christ was confirmed [d]in you, so that you are not lacking in any gift, awaiting eagerly the revelation of our Lord Jesus Christ, who will also confirm you to the end, blameless in the day of our Lord Jesus Christ. God is faithful, through whom you were called into fellowship with His Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.

10 Now I exhort you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that you all [e]agree and that there be no [f]divisions among you, but that you be [g]made complete in the same mind and in the same judgment. 11 For I have been informed concerning you, my brethren, by Chloe’s people, that there are quarrels among you. 12 Now I mean this, that each one of you is saying, “I am of Paul,” and “I of Apollos,” and “I of Cephas,” and “I of Christ.” 13 [h]Has Christ been divided? Paul was not crucified for you, was he? Or were you baptized [i]in the name of Paul? 14 [j]I thank God that I baptized none of you except Crispus and Gaius, 15 so that no one would say you were baptized [k]in my name. 16 Now I did baptize also the household of Stephanas; beyond that, I do not know whether I baptized any other. 17 For Christ did not send me to baptize, but to preach the gospel, not in [l]cleverness of speech, so that the cross of Christ would not be made void.

The Wisdom of God

18 For the word of the cross is foolishness to those who [m]are perishing, but to us who [n]are being saved it is the power of God. 19 For it is written,

“I will destroy the wisdom of the wise,
And the cleverness of the clever I will set aside.”

20 Where is the wise man? Where is the scribe? Where is the debater of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of the world? 21 For since in the wisdom of God the world through its wisdom did not come to know God, God was well-pleased through the foolishness of the [o]message preached to save those who believe. 22 For indeed Jews ask for [p]signs and Greeks search for wisdom; 23 but we preach [q]Christ crucified, to Jews a stumbling block and to Gentiles foolishness, 24 but to those who are the 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 [r]consider your calling, brethren, that there were not many wise according to [s]the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble; 27 but God has chosen the foolish things of the world to shame the wise, and God has chosen the weak things of the world to shame the things which are strong, 28 and the base things of the world and the despised God has chosen, the things that are not, so that He may nullify the things that are, 29 so that no [t]man may boast before God. 30 But [u]by His doing you are in Christ Jesus, who became to us wisdom from God, [v]and righteousness and sanctification, and redemption, 31 so that, just as it is written, “Let him who boasts, boast in the Lord.”

1 Abakkolinso 1

1Nze Pawulo eyayitibwa okuba omutume wa Yesu Kristo olw’okwagala kwa Katonda, ne Sossene[a] owooluganda[b], tuwandiikira ekkanisa ya Katonda eri mu Kkolinso n’eri abo abaatukuzibwa mu Kristo Yesu, abayitibwa abatukuvu, n’abo bonna abakoowoola erinnya lya Mukama waffe Yesu Kristo mu buli kifo, owaabwe era owaffe; ekisa kibe ku mmwe n’emirembe egiva eri Katonda Kitaffe ne Mukama waffe Kristo.

Okwebaza

Nneebaza Katonda wange bulijjo ku lwammwe, olw’ekisa kya Katonda ekyabaweebwa mu Kristo Yesu, mu ye mwagaggawazibwa mu buli kintu, ne mu kwogera kwonna, era ne mu kutegeera kwonna, era ng’obujulirwa bwa Kristo bwe bwakakasibwa mu mmwe, muleme kubaako kye mwetaaga mu kirabo kyonna, nga mulindirira okubikkulirwa kwa Mukama waffe Yesu Kristo. Era oyo y’alibanyweza ku nkomerero, nga temuliiko kya kunenyezebwa ku lunaku lwa Mukama waffe Yesu Kristo. Katonda mwesigwa, oyo eyabayita mu kussekimu okw’Omwana we Yesu Kristo Mukama waffe.

10 Kaakano mbeegayirira abooluganda, mu Iinnya lya Mukama waffe Yesu Kristo, mukkiriziganyenga mwekka na mwekka muleme okwawukananga. Naye mube n’omutima gumu n’endowooza emu. 11 Abooluganda, ab’ewa Kuloowe bannyinnyonnyola nti mu mmwe mulimu ennyombo. 12 Kye ŋŋamba kye kino nti buli omu ku mmwe agamba nti nze ndi wa Pawulo, nze ndi wa Apolo, nze ndi wa Keefa, nze ndi wa Kristo.

13 Kale Kristo ayawuliddwamu? Pawulo yakomererwa ku musaalaba ku lwammwe? Oba mwabatizibwa mu linnya lya Pawulo? 14 Neebaza Katonda kubanga nze sibatizanga muntu n’omu ku mmwe okuggyako Kulisupo ne Gaayo. 15 Noolwekyo si kulwa nga wabaawo agamba nti mwabatizibwa mu linnya lyange. 16 Naye nzijukira nga nabatiza ab’omu nnyumba ya Suteefana, naye sirowooza nga nabatiza omuntu omulala yenna. 17 Kristo teyantuma kubatiza wabula yantuma kubuulira Njiri. Era sigibuulira mu magezi ga bigambo bugambo, si kulwa ng’omusaalaba gwa Kristo gumalibwamu amaanyi gaagwo.

Kristo amagezi n’amaanyi ga Katonda

18 Ekigambo ky’omusaalaba kya busirusiru eri abo abazikirira naye eri ffe abaalokolebwa ge maanyi ga Katonda. 19 Kubanga kyawandiikibwa nti,

“Ndizikiriza amagezi g’abagezi,
    ne nzigyawo okumanya kw’abayivu.”

20 Kale omugezi aluwa? N’omuwandiisi aluwa? Omuwakanyi w’omulembe guno aluwa? Katonda teyafuula amagezi ag’ensi eno okuba obusirusiru? 21 Kubanga Katonda, mu magezi ge, yalaba ng’ensi teyinza kumumanya ng’eyita mu kutegeera kwayo. Katonda kyeyava asiima okuyita mu busirusiru bw’okubuulira Enjiri okulokola abakkiriza. 22 Kubanga Abayudaaya banoonya bubonero, Abayonaani bo ne banoonya amagezi, 23 naye ffe tubuulira Kristo eyakomererwa. Eri Abayudaaya nkonge, eri Abaamawanga busirusiru, 24 naye eri abaayitibwa, Abayudaaya n’Abamawanga, Kristo ge maanyi ga Katonda, era amagezi ga Katonda. 25 Kubanga obusirusiru bwa Katonda businga amagezi g’abantu, n’obunafu bwa Katonda businga abantu amaanyi.

26 Kubanga mulabe okuyitibwa kwammwe abooluganda, bangi ku mmwe temwali bagezi mu mubiri, era nga bangi temuli b’amaanyi, era nga bangi temwazaalibwa nga muli ba kitiibwa. 27 Naye Katonda yalonda ebisirusiru eby’ensi, akwase abagezi ensonyi; era Katonda yalonda ebinafu eby’ensi, akwase ab’amaanyi ensonyi, 28 era n’alonda abakopi ab’ensi n’abo abanyoomebwa; era n’ebitaliiwo alyoke aggyewo ebiriwo, 29 waleme kubaawo muntu n’omu eyeenyumiriza mu maaso ga Katonda. 30 Kyokka ku bw’oyo muli mu Kristo Yesu, eyafuuka amagezi gye tuli okuva eri Katonda, bwe butuukirivu, n’okutukuzibwa, n’okununulibwa, 31 nga bwe kyawandiikibwa nti eyeenyumiriza yeenyumirizenga mu Mukama waffe.
