1Now concerning spiritual matters, my brethren, I want to remind you 2that once you were pagans, and without exception you were carried away by dumb idols. 3Therefore I want you to understand that no man speaking by Ru’akh HaElohim calls Yeshua accursed; and that no man can say that Yeshua is יהוה but by The Ru’akh HaKodesh. 4Now there are many various gifts, but there is only one Ru’akh. 5And there are various ministries, but there is only one who is יהוה . And6 there are various powers, but it is the one Elohim who works all things in all men. 7But a manifestation of HaRu’akh is given to every man in order to help him. 8For to one is given in HaRu’akh the word of wisdom; to another the word of knowledge in the same Ru’akh. 9To another, absolute trust in the same Ru’akh; to another gifts of healing in the same Ru’akh; 10to another, the working of miracles; to another, nevu’ah; to another, the means to discern spirits; to another, different languages; to another, the interpretation of languages. 11But all of these gifts are wrought in that one and the same Ru’akh, dividing to every one severally according to His Will.
12For as the body is one and has many members, and all the members of the body, even though many, are one body, so also is Mashi’akh. 13For all of us are immersed in one Ru’akh into one body, whether Yehudim or Arame’ans, whether bond or free; and we have all received through the one Ru’akh. 14The body is not one member, but many. 15For if the foot should say, “Because I am not the hand, I am not a part of the body;” is it therefore not a member of the body? 16And if the ear should say, “Because I am not the eye, I am not a part of the body;” is it therefore not a member of the body? 17If the whole body were eyes, where would hearing be? And if the whole were hearing, where would smelling be? 18But now Elohim has set every member in the body, as it has pleased Him. 19If they were all one member, where would the body be? 20But now they are many members, yet but one body. 21The eye cannot say to the hand, “I have no need of you;” nor can the head say to the feet, “I have no need of you.” 22But rather, those members of the body which are considered to be weak are necessary. 23And on those members of the body which we think to be less honorable we bestow more abundant honor; and the parts that are uncomely we dress with greater care; 24For our comely parts have no need for attention. But Elohim has so tempered the body together, and has given greater honor to the member which is inferior, 25that there may be no discord in the body, but that they may care one for another, all members should be equal. 26So when one member is in pain, all the members suffer with it; and if one member is honored, all the members will glory with it.
27Now you are the Body of Mashi’akh, and members in your respective places. 28For Elohim has set in His assembly, first Shlikhim; after them, nevi’im; then teachers, then performers of miracles, then those who have the gift of healing, helpers, leaders, and speakers in diverse languages. 29Are all Shlikhim? Are all nevi’im? Are all teachers? Are all workers of miracles? 30Have all the gifts of healing? Do all speak in diverse languages? Or do all interpret? 31But, if you are searching for the greater gifts, I will show you a more excellent way.
