ESV — 1 Corinthians 3:1-9

Divisions in the Church

But I, brothers,1 could not address you as aspiritual people, but as bpeople of the flesh, as cinfants in Christ. dI fed you with milk, not solid food, for eyou were not ready for it. And even now you are not yet ready, for you are still of the flesh. For while there is fjealousy and strife among you, are you not of the flesh and behaving only in a human way? For gwhen one says, “I follow Paul,” and another, “I follow Apollos,” hare you not being merely human?

What then is Apollos? What is Paul? iServants through whom you believed, jas the Lord assigned to each. kI planted, lApollos watered, mbut God gave the growth. So nneither he who plants nor he who waters is anything, but only God who gives the growth. He who plants and he who waters are one, and each owill receive his wages according to his labor. For we are pGod's fellow workers. You are God's field, qGod's building.
