(You are the temple of God.)
You are God’s building.
By the grace God gave me,
I succeeded as an architect
and laid the foundations,
on which someone else is doing the building.
Everyone doing the building must work carefully.
For the foundation, nobody can lay any other
than the one which has already been laid,
that is Jesus Christ.
Didn’t you realise that you were God’s temple
and that the Spirit of God was living among you?
If anybody should destroy the temple of God,
God will destroy him,
because the temple of God is sacred;
and you are that temple.
The word of the Lord.
R.) Thanks be to God.
