1Co 12:7 But to every man some form of the Spirit’s working is given for the common good.
1Co 12:8 For to one are given words of wisdom through the Spirit; and to another words of knowledge through the same Spirit:
1Co 12:9 To another faith in the same Spirit; and to another the power of taking away disease, by the one Spirit;
1Co 12:10 And to another the power of working wonders; and to another the prophet’s word; and to another the power of testing spirits; to another different sorts of tongues; and to another the power of making clear the sense of the tongues:
1Co 12:11 But all these are the operations of the one and the same Spirit, giving to every man separately as his pleasure is.
