New Testament - Corinthians 1

Chapter 1
26 For consider also your own calling, my brethren, not many among you are wise in terms of worldly things and not many among you are mighty and not many among you belong to the nobility.
27 But God has chosen the foolish ones of the world to put the wise to shame; and God has chosen the weak ones of the world to embarrass the mighty.

Chapter 3
3 Because you are still worldly; for as long as there is among you envying and strife and divisions, are you not worldly and still following the material things?
16 Do you not know that you are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwells in you?
17 And whoever defiles the temple of God, God will destroy; for the temple of God is holy, and that temple is you.
18 Let no man deceive himself. Whoever among you thinks he is wise in this world, let him consider himself a fool so that he may become wise.
19 For the wisdom of this world is foolishness before God. For it is written, He catches the wise in their own craftiness.
20 And again, The Lord knows that the thoughts of the wise are vain.

Chapter 6
9 Do you not know that the wicked shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not misled; neither the immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor the corrupt nor men who lie with males
18 Keep away from fornication. Every sin that a man commits is outside his body; but he who commits adultery sins against his own body.
20 For you have been bought with a price; therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, because they belong to God.

Chapter 9
24 Namely, ourselves, the called ones, not of the Jews only but also of the Gentiles.
25 As he said also in Hosea, I will call them my people, who were not my own people; and her beloved who was not beloved.
26 And it shall come to pass that in the place where it was said you are not my people, there shall they be called the children of the living God.
27 Isaiah also preached concerning the children of Israel, Though the number of children of Israel should be as the sand of the sea, only a remnant shall be saved.

Chapter 13
1 THOUGH I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not love in my heart, I am become as sounding brass or a tinkling cymbal.
2 And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not love in my heart, I am nothing.
3 And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not love in my heart, I gain nothing.
4 Love is long-suffering and kind; love does not envy; love does not make a vain display of itself, and does not boast,
5 Does not behave itself unseemly, seeks not its own, is not easily provoked, thinks no evil;
6 Rejoices not over iniquity, but rejoices in the truth;
7 Bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
8 Love never fails; but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away.
9 For we know in part and we prophesy in part.
10 But when that which is perfect is come, then that which is imperfect shall come to an end.
11 When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child; but when I became a man, I put away childish things.
12 For now we see through a mirror, darkly; but then face to face. Now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.
13 And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love.

Chapter 16
13 Watch, stand firm in the faith, be valiant, be strong.
14 Let all your deeds be done with love.
