1:1 Poul, clepid apostle of Jhesu Crist, bi the wille of God, and Sostenes, brothir, to the chirche of God that is at Corynthe,
1:2 to hem that ben halewid in Crist Jhesu, and clepid seyntis, with alle that inwardli clepen the name of oure Lord Jhesu Crist, in ech place of hem and of oure,
1:3 grace to you and pees of God, oure fadir, and of the Lord Jhesu Crist.
1:4 Y do thankyngis to my God eueremore for you, in the grace of God that is youun to you in Crist Jhesu.
1:5 For in alle thingis ye ben maad riche in hym, in ech word, and in ech kunnyng,
1:6 as the witnessyng of Crist is confermyd in you;
1:7 so that no thing faile to you in ony grace, that abiden the schewyng of oure Lord Jhesu Crist;
1:8 which also schal conferme you in to the ende with outen cryme, in the dai of the comyng of oure Lord Jhesu Crist.
1:9 `A trewe God, bi whom ye ben clepid in to the felouschipe of his sone Jhesu Crist oure Lord.
1:10 But, britheren, Y biseche you, bi the name of oure Lord Jhesu Crist, that ye alle seie the same thing, and that dissenciouns be not among you; but be ye perfit in the same wit, and in the same kunnyng.
1:11 For, my britheren, it is teld to me of hem that ben at Cloes, that stryues ben among you.
1:12 And Y seie that, that ech of you seith, For Y am of Poul, and Y am of Apollo, and Y am of Cefas, but Y am of Crist.
1:13 Whether Crist is departid? whether Poul was crucified for you, ether ye ben baptisid in the name of Poul?
1:14 Y do thankyngis to my God, that Y baptiside noon of you, but Crispus and Gayus;
1:15 lest ony man seie, that ye ben baptisid in my name.
1:16 And Y baptiside also the hous of Stephan, but Y woot not, that Y baptiside ony other.
1:17 For Crist sente me not to baptise, but to preche the gospel; not in wisdom of word, that the cros of Crist be not voidid awei.
1:18 For the word of the cros is foli to hem that perischen; but to hem that ben maad saaf, that is to seie, to vs, it is the vertu of God.
1:19 For it is writun, Y schal distruye the wisdom of wise men, and Y schal reproue the prudence of prudent men.
1:20 Where is the wise man? where is the wise lawiere? where is the purchasour of this world? Whether God hath not maad the wisdom of this world fonned?
1:21 For the world in wisdom of God knewe not God bi wisdom, it pleside to God, bi foli of prechyng, `to maken hem saaf that bileueden.
1:22 For Jewis seken signes, and Grekis seken wisdom;
1:23 but we prechen Crist crucified, to Jewis sclaundre, and to hethene men foli;
1:24 but to tho Jewis and Grekis that ben clepid, we prechen Crist the vertu of God and the wisdom of God.
1:25 For that that is foli thing of God, is wiser than men; and that that is the feble thing of God, is strengere than men.
1:26 But, britheren, se ye youre clepyng; for not many wise men aftir the fleisch, not many myyti, not many noble.
1:27 But God chees tho thingis that ben fonned of the world, to confounde wise men;
1:28 and God chees the feble thingis of the world, to confounde the stronge thingis; and God chees the vnnoble thingis `and dispisable thingis of the world, and tho thingis that ben not, to distruye tho thingis that ben;
1:29 that ech man haue not glorie in his siyt.
1:30 But of hym ye ben in Crist Jhesu, which is maad of God to vs wisdom, and riytwisnesse, and holynesse, and ayenbiyng; that,
1:31 as it is wrytun, He that glorieth, haue glorie in the Lord.
