Isaiah 1 Corinthians

Isaiah chapter 50 and the epistle of 1 Corinthians.

FE 1Thus says the Master: Where is the bill of divorce of your mother, whom I have put away, or which of my creditors is it to whom I have sold you? For your iniquities you were sold, and for your transgressions your mother is put away. 2Why, when I came, was there no man, or when I called, was there no one to answer? Is my hand shortened at all, that it cannot save, or have I no power to deliver? At my rebuke I dry up the sea, I make the rivers a wilderness; their fish stink because there is no water, and they die of thirst. 3I clothe the skies with darkness and make sackcloth their covering. Isaiah 50:1-34The Master God has given me the tongue of the learned, that I should know how to speak and declare a word to the weary; he wakens me in the morning; in the morning he causes my ears to hear the teaching. 5The Master God has opened my ears, and I have not turned back to the evil way, nor have I been rebellious. 6I gave my back to the strikers and my cheeks to those who slap on the face; I did not turn my face from shame and spitting. 7For the Master God has helped me; therefore I am not confounded; therefore I have hardened my face like a flint, and I know that I will not be ashamed. 8For he who justifies me is near. Who will contend with me? Let us stand together. Who is lord of judgment? Let him come near to me. 9The Master God will help me; who is he that will condemn me? They will all wear out as a garment; the moth will eat them up. Isaiah 50:4-910Who is among you who fears the Master? Let him listen to the voice of his servant. He who walks in darkness and has no light, let him trust in the name of the Master and be saved by his god. 11All of you are like kindling and the sparks of the kindling. Walk in the light of your fire and in the sparks that you have kindled. This you will have of my hands; you will lie down in sorrow. Isaiah 50:10-11 (Isaiah 50 BRB)


FA 1It is reported that fornication is common among you, and such fornication as is not known among pagans, that even a son should take the wife of his father. 2But, instead of boasting, as you have done, rather had you sat down mourning, that he who has done this deed might have been removed from among you. 1 Corinthians 5:1-5 (1 Corinthians 5:1-2 BRB)


1|4 1Am I not a son of freedom, 2|4 or am I not an apostle, 3|4 or have I not seen Joshua FA , the anointed, our master, 4|4 or are you not my work in my master? 2If I am not an apostle to others, yet to you I am, for you are the seal of my apostleship. 1 Corinthians 9:1-23My answer to those who criticize me is this: FA 4Do we not have the authority to eat and to drink? 5Do we not have the authority to travel with a sister as a wife just as the rest of the apostles do and as the brothers of our master and as Peter? 6I and Barnabas, do we not have the authority to live without working? 1 Corinthians 9:3-67What officer commands an army at his own expense? A 2 Kings 5:1 Who plants a vineyard and does not eat of its fruit? A 1 Kings 21:1 Who feeds sheep and does not eat of the produce of his flock? A 1 Samuel 17:15 FA 8I say these things as a man. The law also says them. 9For it is written in the law of Moses, You will not muzzle the ox that treads out the wheat. Q Deuteronomy 25:4 Why? Is god concerned only for the ox? 10No. It is known that he said it for our sakes and it was written for our sakes because the plowman must plow in hope and he who threshes threshes in hope of the crop. 11If we have sown spiritual things among you is it too much that we should reap material things from you? 12If others have this authority over you do we not have it all the more? 1 Corinthians 9:7-12Yet we have not used this authority, but we have endured all things so that we would not hinder the thinking of the anointed. 13Do you not know that those who work in the holy place are maintained out of the temple? Those who minister at the altar share the offerings with the altar? 14Even so our master has commanded that those who preach his thinking should live by his thinking. 1 Corinthians 9:12-1415I have not used 1 of these things nor have I written this that it should be done to me, for it were better for me to die than that any man should nullify my glory. FA 16For though I preach the thinking I have nothing to glory of for I am under obligation. Yes, woe to me if I do not preach the thinking. 17For if I do this thing willingly I have my reward, but if against my will it is like a stewardship entrusted to me. 18What then is my reward? That when I preach the thinking without charge I may make it the thinking of the anointed and I have not abused the authority given to me in the gospel. 1 Corinthians 9:15-18FA 19Because I am free from all these things, I have served all men that I may gain many. 1|4 20With the Jews, I became as a Jew, that I might win the Jews, 2|4 and with those who are under the law, I became as one who is under the law, that I might win those who are under the law. 1 Corinthians 9:19-23 (1 Corinthians 9:1-20 BRB)
