ContextPaul and Apollos God's Fellow Workers
1And I, brothers, could not speak to you as to spiritual, but as to carnal, even as to babes in Christ. 2I have fed you with milk, and not with meat: for till now you were not able to bear it, neither yet now are you able. 3For you are yet carnal: for whereas there is among you envying, and strife, and divisions, are you not carnal, and walk as men? 4For while one said, I am of Paul; and another, I am of Apollos; are you not carnal? 5Who then is Paul, and who is Apollos, but ministers by whom you believed, even as the Lord gave to every man? 6I have planted, Apollos watered; but God gave the increase. 7So then neither is he that plants any thing, neither he that waters; but God that gives the increase. 8Now he that plants and he that waters are one: and every man shall receive his own reward according to his own labor. 9For we are laborers together with God: you are God's husbandry, you are God's building.
