THE HOLY BIBLE Authorized King James

1 Corinthians (Author Paul)

4:14I write not these things to shame you, but as my beloved sons I warn you.

4:15For though ye have ten thousand instructors in Christ, yet have ye not many fathers: for in Christ Jesus I have begotten you through the gospel.

4:16Wherefore I beseech you, be ye followers of me.

4:17For this cause have I sent unto you Timotheus, who is my beloved son, and faithful in the Lord, who shall bring you into remembrance of my ways which be in Christ, as I teach every where in every church.

4:18Now some are puffed up, as though I would not come to you.

4:19But I will come to you shortly, if the Lord will, and will know, not the speech of them which are puffed up, but the power.

4:20For the kingdom of God is not in word, but in power.

4:21What will ye? shall I come unto you with a rod, or in love, and in the spirit of meekness?
