1corinthians

1 Cor. 3:1 - NIV, NAB - in Irenaeus Against Heresies Book V

For men of this stamp do indeed say that they believe in the Father and the Son, but they never meditate as they should upon the things of God, neither are they adorned with works of righteousness; but, as I have already observed, they have adopted the lives of swine and of dogs, giving themselves over to filthiness, to gluttony, and recklessness of all sorts. Justly, therefore, did the apostle call all such "carnal" and "animal,"[57]

1 Cor. 3:1 - NIV, NAB - in Clement of Alexandria The Instructor Book I

So also may we take the Scripture: "And I, brethren, could not speak unto you as unto spiritual, but as unto carnal, even as unto babes in Christ; "[79]

1 Cor. 3:1 - NIV, NAB - in Clement of Alexandria Stromata Book V

For ye are yet carnal: for whereas there is among you envy and strife, are ye not carnal, and walk as men? "[63]

1 Cor. 3:1 - NIV, NAB - in Clement of Alexandria Stromata Book V

I have fed you with milk, not with meat: for ye were not yet able; neither are ye now able. For ye are yet carnal."[125]

1 Cor. 3:1 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian The Prescription Against Heretics

That they likewise (remember), what was written to the Corinthians, that they "were yet carnal," who "required to be fed with milk," being as yet "unable to bear strong meat; "[295]

1 Cor. 3:1 - NIV, NAB - in Cyprian Treatise X On Jealousy and Envy

For ye are yet carnal: for whereas there are still among you jealousy, and contention, and strifes, are ye not carnal, and walk as men? "[32]

1 Cor. 3:1 - NIV, NAB - in Cyprian Treatise XII Three Books of Testimonies Against the Jews

For ye are still carnal: for where there are in you emulation, and strife, and dissensions, are ye not carnal, and walk after man? "[378]

1 Cor. 3:1 - NIV, NAB - in Origen Commentary on Matthew Book XI

Moreover, interpret with me allegorically the children in accordance with the passage, "I could not speak unto you as unto spiritual, but as unto carnal, as unto babes in Christ; "[20]

1 Cor. 3:2 - NIV, NAB - in Irenaeus Against Heresies Book IV

And on this account does Paul declare to the Corinthians, "I have fed you with milk, not with meat, for hitherto ye were not able to bear it."[620]

1 Cor. 3:2 - NIV, NAB - in Clement of Alexandria The Instructor Book I

And we have still to explain what is said by the apostle: "I have fed you with milk (as children in Christ), not with meat; for ye were not able, neither yet are ye now able."[75]

1 Cor. 3:2 - NIV, NAB - in Clement of Alexandria The Instructor Book I

And since the Word is the gushing fountain of life, and has been called a river of olive oil, Paul, using appropriate figurative language, and calling Him milk, adds: "I have given you to drink; "[93]

1 Cor. 3:2 - NIV, NAB - in Clement of Alexandria The Instructor Book I

Wherefore the Holy Spirit in the apostle, using the voice of the Lord, says mystically, "I have given you milk to drink."[100]

1 Cor. 3:2 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian On Monogamy

What was the subject-matter which led the apostle to write such (words)? The inexperience of a new and just rising Church, which he was rearing, to wit, "with milk," not yet with the "solid food"[90]

1 Cor. 3:2 - NIV, NAB - in Origen Against Celsus Book II

which is the same as saying, "Hitherto ye were not able, neither yet now are ye able, for ye are still carnal."[171]

1 Cor. 3:2 - NIV, NAB - in Origen Against Celsus Book III

For the word is used by our Paul in writing to the Corinthians, who were Greeks, and not yet purified in their morals: "I have fed you with milk, not with meat; for hitherto ye were not able to bear it, neither yet now are ye able, for ye are yet carnal: for whereas there is among you envying and strife, are ye not carnal, and walk as men? "[162]

1 Cor. 3:2 - NIV, NAB - in Origen Commentary on Matthew Book XII

to whom Paul says, "I have fed you with milk, not with meat,"[204]

1 Cor. 3:3 - NIV, NAB - in Irenaeus Against Heresies Book IV

"For when envying and strife," he says, "and dissensions are among you, are ye not carnal, and walk as men? "[621]

1 Cor. 3:3 - NIV, NAB - in Clement of Alexandria The Instructor Book I

For he called those who had already believed on the Holy Spirit spiritual, and those newly instructed and not yet purified carnal; whom with justice he calls still carnal, as minding equally with the heathen the things of the flesh: "For whereas there is among you envy and strife, are ye not carnal, and walk as men? "[80]

1 Cor. 3:3 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian On Baptism

to Paul, another to Apollos.[146]

1 Cor. 3:3 - NIV, NAB - in A Treatise Against the Heretic Novatian by an Anonymous Bishop

For where there are "rivalries and dissensions among you, are ye not carnal, and walk according to man? "[52]

1 Cor. 3:6 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian An Answer to the Jews

But the new law's wont was to point to clemency, and to convert to tranquillity the pristine ferocity of "glaives" and "lances," and to remodel the pristine execution of "war" upon the rivals and foes of the law into the pacific actions of "ploughing" and "tilling" the land.[54]

1 Cor. 3:6 - NIV, NAB - in Origen de Principiis Book III

So then neither is he that planteth anything, neither he that watereth; but God that giveth the increase."[184]

1 Cor. 3:6 - NIV, NAB - in Origen de Principiis Book III

So then neither is he that planteth anything, neither he that watereth; but God that giveth the increase."[198]

1 Cor. 3:6 - NIV, NAB - in A Treatise of Novatian Concerning the Trinity

Therefore neither is he that planteth anything, nor he that watereth, but God who gives the increase. Now he that planteth and he that watereth are one."[217]

1 Cor. 3:6 - NIV, NAB - in Pseudo-Gregory Thaumaturgus A Sectional Confession of Faith

and there is a divinity present according to nature in the Spirit into wit, what subsists as the Spirit of God-according to Paul's statement, "Ye are the temple of God, and the Spirit of God dwelleth in you."[32]

1 Cor. 3:7 - NIV, NAB - in Irenaeus Against Heresies Book IV

but it is one God who bestows things suitable upon both-seed to the sower, but bread for the reaper to eat. Just as it is one that planteth, and another who watereth, but one God who giveth the increase.[349]

1 Cor. 3:7 - NIV, NAB - in Archelaus Acts of the Disputation with the Heresiarch Manes

which also covered and destroyed the glory on the countenance of Moses.[111]

1 Cor. 3:7 - NIV, NAB - in Methodius From the Discourse on the Resurrection

The apostle certainly, after assigning the planting and watering to art and earth and water, conceded the growth to God alone, where he says, "Neither is he that planteth anything, neither he that watereth; but God that giveth the increase."[48]

1 Cor. 3:8 - NIV, NAB - in Clement of Alexandria Stromata Book I

"But every one shall receive his own reward, according to his own work. For we are God's husbandmen, God's husbandry. Ye are God's building,"[16]

1 Cor. 3:8 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian On Monogamy

Else how shall we sing thanks to God to eternity, if there shall remain in us no sense and memory of this debt; if we shall be reformed in substance, not in consciousness? Consequently, we who shall be with God shall be together; since we shall all be with the one God-albeit the wages be various,[83]

1 Cor. 3:9 - NIV, NAB - in Shepherd of Hermas Vision Third

I answered and said to her, "When, then, will they be useful for the building, Lady? "When the riches that now seduce them have been circumscribed, then will they be of use to God.[25]

1 Cor. 3:9 - NIV, NAB - in Origen Against Celsus Book IV

And in the next place, as we must not stop with rooting out and pulling down the hindrances which have just been mentioned, but must, in room of what has been rooted out, plant the plants of "God's husbandry; "[4]

1 Cor. 3:10 - NIV, NAB - in Clement of Alexandria Stromata Book V

"According to the grace," it is said, "given to me as a wise master builder, I have laid the foundation. And another buildeth on it gold and silver, precious stones."[64]

1 Cor. 3:10 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian An Answer to the Jews

, among the Jews from Jerusalem," among the other things named, "the wise architect" too,[308]

1 Cor. 3:10 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian Against Marcion Book V

What has he also to do with illustrations from our God? For when (the apostle) calls himself "a wise master-builder,"[263]

1 Cor. 3:10 - NIV, NAB - in Archelaus Acts of the Disputation with the Heresiarch Manes

has laid our foundation,[646]

1 Cor. 3:11 - NIV, NAB - in Shepherd of Hermas Similitude Ninth

If, then, the whole creation is supported by the Son of God, what think ye of those who are called by Him, and bear the name of the Son of God, and walk in His commandments? do you see what kind of persons He supports? Those who bear His name with their whole heart. He Himself, accordingly, became a foundation[23]

1 Cor. 3:11 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian Against Marcion Book V

And was it not Paul himself who was there foretold, destined "to be taken away from Judah"-that is, from Judaism-for the erection of Christianity, in order "to lay that only foundation, which is Christ? "[266]

1 Cor. 3:11 - NIV, NAB - in Lactantius Divine Institutes Book VI

But let us suppose it possible that any one, by natural and innate goodness, should gain true virtues, such a man as we have heard that Cimon was at Athens, who both gave alms to the needy, and entertained the poor, and clothed the naked; yet, when that one thing which is of the greatest importance is wanting-the acknowledgment of God-then all those good things are superfluous and empty, so that in pursuing them he has laboured in vain.[66]

1 Cor. 3:12 - NIV, NAB - in Origen de Principiis Book II

Of this fire the fuel and food are our sins, which are called by the Apostle Paul wood, and hay, and stubble."[176]

1 Cor. 3:12 - NIV, NAB - in Origen Against Celsus Book IV

And we assert that they are wickedness, and the works which result from it, and which, being figuratively called "wood, hay, stubble,"[50]

1 Cor. 3:12 - NIV, NAB - in Origen Against Celsus Book V

which needs to be consumed by that fire, and which burns and consumes those who by their actions, words, and thoughts have built up wood, or hay, or stubble, in that which is figuratively termed a "building."[57]

1 Cor. 3:12 - NIV, NAB - in Origen Against Celsus Book VI

In the same way, too, if sins are called "wood, and straw, and stubble," we shall not maintain that sins are corporeal; and if blessings are termed "gold, and silver, and precious stones,"[363]

1 Cor. 3:12 - NIV, NAB - in A Treatise Against the Heretic Novatian by an Anonymous Bishop

Behold how glorious, how dear to the Lord, are the people whom these schismatics do not shrink from calling "wood, hay, stubble; "[21]

1 Cor. 3:13 - NIV, NAB - in 1 Clement

of the Spirit, he wrote to you concerning himself, and Cephas, and Apollos,[213]

1 Cor. 3:13 - NIV, NAB - in Origen Against Celsus Book IV

which he hath built thereupon, he shall receive a reward. If any man's work be burned, he shall suffer loss."[52]

1 Cor. 3:13 - NIV, NAB - in Cyprian Epistle LI

It is one thing to stand for pardon, another thing to attain to glory: it is one thing, when cast into prison, not to go out thence until one has paid the uttermost farthing; another thing at once to receive the wages of faith and courage. It is one thing, tortured by long suffering for sins, to be cleansed and long purged by fire;[35]

1 Cor. 3:13 - NIV, NAB - in Lactantius Divine Institutes Book VII

These things are near to the truth.[135]

1 Cor. 3:13 - NIV, NAB - in 1 Clement

of the Spirit, he wrote to you concerning himself, and Cephas, and Apollos,[260]

1 Cor. 3:16 - NIV, NAB - in Epistle of Ignatius to the Philadelphians

as the temples of God;[63]

1 Cor. 3:16 - NIV, NAB - in Irenaeus Against Heresies Book V

Whence also he says, that this handiwork is "the temple of God," thus declaring: "Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you? If any man, therefore, will defile the temple of God, him will God destroy: for the temple of God is holy, which [temple] ye are."[31]

1 Cor. 3:16 - NIV, NAB - in Fragments from the Lost Writings of Irenaeus

For thus, according to the holy apostle, the sin of fornication is perpetrated against the body, as involving also sin against the temple of God.[87]

1 Cor. 3:16 - NIV, NAB - in Shepherd of Hermas Similitude Fifth

If you defile your flesh, you will also defile the Holy Spirit; and if you defile your flesh [and spirit], you will not live."[24]

1 Cor. 3:16 - NIV, NAB - in Clement of Alexandria Stromata Book VII

What, then, shall we say of the Gnostic himself? "Know ye not," says the apostle, "that ye are the temple of God? "[135]

1 Cor. 3:16 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian A Treatise on the Soul

but in the apostle's it is "the temple of God,"[307]

1 Cor. 3:16 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian Against Marcion Book V

"Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you? "[269]

1 Cor. 3:16 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian On the Resurrection of the Flesh

he also forbids our body to be profaned, as being "the temple of God; "[78]

1 Cor. 3:16 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian On the Apparel of Women Book II

(in) us of the Holy Spirit, we are all" the temple of God,"[3]

1 Cor. 3:16 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian To His Wife Book II

produce (our) marriage certificates before the Lord's tribunal, and allege that a marriage such as He Himself has forbidden has been duly contracted? What is prohibited (in the passage just referred to) is not "adultery; "It is not "fornication." The admission of a strange man (to your couch) less violates "the temple of God,"[26]

1 Cor. 3:16 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian On Modesty

of "temple of God,"[77]

1 Cor. 3:16 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian On Modesty

(He it is) who even in the first (Epistle) was the first of all (the apostles) to dedicate the temple of God: "Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that in you the Lord dwells? "[162]

1 Cor. 3:16 - NIV, NAB - in Cyprian Epistle LIX

For inasmuch as the Apostle Paul says again, "Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you? "[5]

1 Cor. 3:16 - NIV, NAB - in Cyprian Treatise XII Three Books of Testimonies Against the Jews

Also in the first Epistle of Paul to the Corinthians: "Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and the Spirit of God abideth in you? If any one violate the temple of God, him will God destroy."[553]

1 Cor. 3:16 - NIV, NAB - in Pseudo-Gregory Thaumaturgus A Sectional Confession of Faith

And again he says: "Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you? If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy."[86]

1 Cor. 3:16 - NIV, NAB - in Origen Commentary on Matthew Book X

to them also it might be said, "The kingdom of heaven is within you; "and most of all because of the repentance from the letter unto the spirit; since "When one turn to the Lord, the veil over the letter is taken away.But the Lord is the Spirit."[74]

1 Cor. 3:17 - NIV, NAB - in Irenaeus Against Heresies Book IV

and "whosoever shall defile the temple of God, him shall God defile."[101]

1 Cor. 3:17 - NIV, NAB - in Irenaeus Against Heresies Book V

And not only does he (the apostle) acknowledge our bodies to be a temple, but even the temple of Christ, saying thus to the Corinthians, "Know ye not that your bodies are members of Christ? Shall I then take the members of Christ, and make them the members of an harlot? "[33]

1 Cor. 3:17 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian Against Marcion Book V

-of course, by the God of the temple.[271]

1 Cor. 3:17 - NIV, NAB - in Archelaus Acts of the Disputation with the Heresiarch Manes

But if it seems difficult for you to understand this, and if you do not acquiesce in these statements, I may at all events try to make them good by adducing illustrations. Contemplate man as a kind of temple, according to the similitude of Scripture:[158]

1 Cor. 3:18 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian The Prescription Against Heretics

produced for itching ears of the spirit of this world's wisdom: this the Lord called "foolishness,"[63]

1 Cor. 3:18 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian Against Marcion Book V

If you threaten an avenger, you threaten us with the Creator. "Ye must become fools, that ye may be wise."[272]

1 Cor. 3:18 - NIV, NAB - in Origen Against Celsus Book I

But since Celsus has declared it to be a saying of many Christians, that "the wisdom of this life is a bad thing, but that foolishness is good," we have to answer that he slanders the Gospel, not giving the words as they actually occur in the writings of Paul, where they run as follow: "If any one among you seemeth to be wise in this world, let him become a fool, that he may become wise. For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God."[32]

1 Cor. 3:18 - NIV, NAB - in Cyprian Treatise IX On the Advantage of Patience

For it is written, I will rebuke the wise in their own craftiness." And again: "The Lord knoweth the thoughts of the wise, that they are foolish."[5]

1 Cor. 3:18 - NIV, NAB - in Cyprian Treatise XII Three Books of Testimonies Against the Jews

For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, Thou shall rebuke the wise in their own craftiness."[716]

1 Cor. 3:19 - NIV, NAB - in Clement of Alexandria Stromata Book I

For on the believer alone, who is separated entirely from the rest, who by the Scripture are called wild beasts, rests the head of the universe, the kind and gentle Word, "who taketh the wise in their own craftiness. For the Lord knoweth the thoughts of the wise, that they axe vain; "[45]

1 Cor. 3:19 - NIV, NAB - in Clement of Alexandria Stromata Book I

This, then, "the wisdom of the world is foolishness with God," and of those who are "the wise the Lord knoweth their thoughts that they are vain."[119]

1 Cor. 3:19 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian Against Marcion Book V

Wherefore? "Because the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God."[273]

1 Cor. 3:19 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian Against Marcion Book V

an excellent testimony turns up in what (the apostle) here adjoins: "For it is written, He taketh the wise in their own craftiness; and again, The Lord knoweth the thoughts of the wise, that they are vain."[275]

1 Cor. 3:19 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian On the Resurrection of the Flesh

according to the estimate of God, and that the very "Wisdom of the world is foolishness," (as the inspired word) pronounces it to be.[27]

1 Cor. 3:19 - NIV, NAB - in Origen Against Celsus Book VI

is foolishness with God."[60]

1 Cor. 3:19 - NIV, NAB - in Origen Against Celsus Book VII

For if he means one who is wise in "the wisdom of this world," as it is called, "which is foolishness with God,"[45]

1 Cor. 3:19 - NIV, NAB - in Dionysius A Commentary on the Beginning of Ecclesiastes

I was vainly puffed up, and increased wisdom; not the wisdom which God has given, but that wisdom of which Paul says, "The wisdom of this world is foolishness with God."[6]

1 Cor. 3:19 - NIV, NAB - in Arnobius Against the Heathen Book II

what the issues to be proposed in lawsuits are, how many kinds of cases there are, how many ways of pleading, what the genus is, what the species, by what methods an opposite is distinguished from a contrary,-do you therefore think that you know what is false, what true, what can or cannot be done, what is the nature of the lowest and highest? Have the well-known words never rung in[39]

1 Cor. 3:19 - NIV, NAB - in The Epistle of Pope Urban First

for the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God.[12]

1 Cor. 3:19 - NIV, NAB - in Origen Commentary on John Book II

For what is that which is destroyed by the breath of the mouth of Christ, Christ being the Word and Truth and Wisdom, but the lie? And what is that which is brought to naught by the manifestation of Christ's coming, Christ being conceived as wisdom and reason, what but that which announces itself as wisdom, when in reality it is one of those things with which God deals as the Apostle describes,[19]

1 Cor. 3:21 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian Against Marcion Book V

"Therefore," says he, "let no man glory in man; "[277]

1 Cor. 3:21 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian Against Marcion Book V

Now, from whom do all things come to us, but from Him to whom all things belong? And pray, what things are these? You have them in a preceding part of the epistle: "All things are yours; whether Paul, or Apollos, or Cephas, or the world, or life, or death, or things present, or things to come."[318]

1 Cor. 3:21 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian On the Apparel of Women Book II

also, to augment that (beauty) when (naturally) given them, and to strive after it when not (thus) given? Some one will say, "Why, then, if voluptuousness be shut out and chastity let in, may (we) not enjoy the praise of beauty alone, and glory in a bodily good? "Let whoever finds pleasure in "glorying in the flesh"[31]

1 Cor. 3:22 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian On the Resurrection of the Flesh

The apostle, however, in his epistle says, "Whether it be the world, or life, or death, or things present, or things to come; all are yours: "[456]

1 Cor. 3:23 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian Against Marcion Book V

" comes also Christ.[319]
