12. Even so ye, for as much as ye are zealous of * spiritual gifts [Gr. Spirits] seek that ye may excel to the edifying of the church. 13. Wherefore let him that speaketh in an unknown tongue, pray that he may interpret. 14. For if I pray in an un known tongue, my spirit prayeth, but my understanding is unfruitful. 15.

15. What is it then? I will pray with the spirit, and I will pray with the understanding also: I will f fing with the Ipirit, and I will : sing with the understanding also. 16. Elle when thou shalt bless with the spirit, how shall he that occupieth the room of the unlearned, blay Amen at thy giving of thanks, seeing he understandeth not what thou sayft? 17. For thou verily givest, thanks well, but the ocher is not edified. 18. I thank my God, I speak with tongues more than you all: 19. Yet in the church I had rather speak five words with my understanding, that by my voice I might teach others also, than ten thousand words in an unknown tongue. 20.

2. 6. Howbeit

In the law it is a written, With men of other tongues and other lips, will I speak unto this people : and yet for all that will they not hear me, faith the Lord. 22. Wherefore

tongues are for a sign, not to them that believe, but to them that believe not but prophesying serveth not for them that believe not, but for them which believe. 23. If therefore the whole church be come together into one place, and all speak with tongues, and there come in those that are unlearned, or unbelievers, n will they not say that ye are mad? 24. But if all prophesie, and there come in one that believeth not, or one unlearned, he is convinced of all, he is judged of all: 25. And thus are the secrets of his heart made manifest; and so falling down on his face, he will worship God, and report o that God is in you of a truth. 26. How is it then, brethren? when ye come toger ther

If any man speak in an unknown tongue, let it be by two, or at the most by three, and that by course; and let one'interpret. 28. But if there be no interpreter, let him keep filence in the church; and let him speak to himself, and to God. 29. ' Let the Prophets {peak two or three, and let the other judge. 30. If any thing be revealed to another that fitteth by, s let the first hold his peace. 31. For ye may all prophesie one by one, that all may learn, and all may be comforted. 32. And the spirits of the prophets are subject to the prophets. 33.
