4:1 Let a man so account of us, as of the ministers of Christ, and stewards of the mysteries of God.
o de loipon zhteitai en toiV oikonomoiV ina pistoV tiV eureqh
4:2 Moreover it is required in stewards, that a man be found faithful.
emoi de eiV elaciston estin ina uf umwn anakriqw h upo anqrwpinhV hmeraV all oude emauton anakrinw
4:3 But with me it is a very small thing that I should be judged of you, or of man's judgment: yea, I judge not mine own self.
ouden gar emautw sunoida all ouk en toutw dedikaiwmai o de anakrinwn me kurioV estin
4:4 For I know nothing by myself; yet am I not hereby justified: but he that judgeth me is the Lord.
wste mh pro kairou ti krinete ewV an elqh o kurioV oV kai fwtisei ta krupta tou skotouV kai fanerwsei taV boulaV twn kardiwn kai tote o epainoV genhsetai ekastw apo tou qeou
4:5 Therefore judge nothing before the time, until the Lord come, who both will bring to light the hidden things of darkness, and will make manifest the counsels of the hearts: and then shall every man have praise of God.
tauta de adelfoi meteschmatisa eiV emauton kai apollw di umaV ina en hmin maqhte to mh uper o gegraptai fronein ina mh eiV uper tou enoV fusiousqe kata tou eterou
4:6 And these things, brethren, I have in a figure transferred to myself and [to] Apollos for your sakes; that ye might learn in us not to think [of men] above that which is written, that no one of you be puffed up for one against another.
tiV gar se diakrinei ti de eceiV o ouk elabeV ei de kai elabeV ti kaucasai wV mh labwn
4:7 For who maketh thee to differ [from another]? and what hast thou that thou didst not receive? now if thou didst receive [it], why dost thou glory, as if thou hadst not received [it]?
hdh kekoresmenoi este hdh eplouthsate cwriV hmwn ebasileusate kai ofelon ge ebasileusate ina kai hmeiV umin sumbasileuswmen
4:8 Now ye are full, now ye are rich, ye have reigned as kings without us: and I would to God ye did reign, that we also might reign with you.
dokw gar oti o qeoV hmaV touV apostolouV escatouV apedeixen wV epiqanatiouV oti qeatron egenhqhmen tw kosmw kai aggeloiV kai anqrwpoiV
4:9 For I think that God hath set forth us the apostles last, as it were appointed to death: for we are made a spectacle unto the world, and to angels, and to men.
hmeiV mwroi dia criston umeiV de fronimoi en cristw hmeiV asqeneiV umeiV de iscuroi umeiV endoxoi hmeiV de atimoi
4:10 We [are] fools for Christ's sake, but ye [are] wise in Christ; we [are] weak, but ye [are] strong; ye [are] honourable, but we [are] despised.
acri thV arti wraV kai peinwmen kai diywmen kai gumnhteuomen kai kolafizomeqa kai astatoumen
4:11 Even unto this present hour we both hunger, and thirst, and are naked, and are buffeted, and have no certain dwellingplace;
kai kopiwmen ergazomenoi taiV idiaiV cersin loidoroumenoi eulogoumen diwkomenoi anecomeqa
4:12 And labour, working with our own hands: being reviled, we bless; being persecuted, we suffer it:
blasfhmoumenoi parakaloumen wV perikaqarmata tou kosmou egenhqhmen pantwn periyhma ewV arti
4:13 Being defamed, we intreat: we are made as the filth of the world, [and are] the offscouring of all things unto this day.
ouk entrepwn umaV grafw tauta all wV tekna mou agaphta nouqetw
4:14 I write not these things to shame you, but as my beloved sons I warn [you].
ean gar muriouV paidagwgouV echte en cristw all ou pollouV pateraV en gar cristw ihsou dia tou euaggeliou egw umaV egennhsa
4:15 For 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.
parakalw oun umaV mimhtai mou ginesqe
4:16 Wherefore I beseech you, be ye followers of me.
dia touto epemya umin timoqeon oV estin teknon mou agaphton kai piston en kuriw oV umaV anamnhsei taV odouV mou taV en cristw kaqwV pantacou en pash ekklhsia didaskw
4:17 For 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.
wV mh ercomenou de mou proV umaV efusiwqhsan tineV
4:18 Now some are puffed up, as though I would not come to you.
eleusomai de tacewV proV umaV ean o kurioV qelhsh kai gnwsomai ou ton logon twn pefusiwmenwn alla thn dunamin
4:19 But 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.
ou gar en logw h basileia tou qeou all en dunamei
4:20 For the kingdom of God [is] not in word, but in power.
ti qelete en rabdw elqw proV umaV h en agaph pneumati te praothtoV
4:21 What will ye? shall I come unto you with a rod, or in love, and [in] the spirit of meekness?
