1 Corinthians 12:12
I Corinthians 12:12 New King James Version (NKJV)
For as the body is one and has many members, but all the members of that one body, being many, are one body, so also is Christ.
1 Corinthians 12:12 American Standard Version (ASV)
For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of the body, being many, are one body; so also is Christ.
1 Corinthians 12:12 New International Version (NIV)
Just as a body, though one, has many parts, but all its many parts form one body, so it is with Christ.
1 Corinthians 12:12-13 The Message (MSG)
You can easily enough see how this kind of thing works by looking no further than your own body. Your body has many parts—limbs, organs, cells—but no matter how many parts you can name, you’re still one body. It’s exactly the same with Christ. By means of his one Spirit, we all said good-bye to our partial and piecemeal lives. We each used to independently call our own shots, but then we entered into a large and integrated life in which he has the final say in everything. (This is what we proclaimed in word and action when we were baptized.) Each of us is now a part of his resurrection body, refreshed and sustained at one fountain—his Spirit—where we all come to drink. The old labels we once used to identify ourselves—labels like Jew or Greek, slave or free—are no longer useful. We need something larger, more comprehensive.
1 Corinthians 12:12 New American Standard Bible - NASB 1995 (NASB1995)
For even as the body is one and yet has many members, and all the members of the body, though they are many, are one body, so also is Christ.
1 Corinthians 12:12 New Living Translation (NLT)
The human body has many parts, but the many parts make up one whole body. So it is with the body of Christ.
1 Corinthians 12:12 King James Version (KJV)
For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of that one body, being many, are one body: so also is Christ.
1 Corinthians 12:12 New Century Version (NCV)
A person’s body is one thing, but it has many parts. Though there are many parts to a body, all those parts make only one body. Christ is like that also.
1 Corinthians 12:12 Amplified Bible (AMP)
For just as the body is one and yet has many parts, and all the parts, though many, form [only] one body, so it is with Christ.
1 Corinthians 12:12 The Passion Translation (TPT)
Just as the human body is one, though it has many parts that together form one body, so too is Christ.
