1 Corinthians Chapter 4
1Paul sheweth in what account such as he should be held, of whose fidelity it should be left to God to judge. 6He dissuadeth the Corinthians from valuing themselves in one teacher above another, since all had their respective distinctions from God. 8To their self-sufficient vanity he opposeth his own despised and afflicted state; 14warning them, as their only father in Christ, and urging them to follow him. 17For the same cause he sent Timotheus, and meant soon to follow in person, when he would enquire into the authority of such as opposed him.
