2. Convicting People More
20 Brothers, do not be 1achildren in your 2understanding, but in bmalice be cbabes and in your 2understanding be 3dfull-grown.
21 In the 1alaw it is written, 2b"By those of other tongues and with the lips of others I will speak to this people; even so they will not listen to Me, says the Lord.''
22 So then tongues are for a 1sign, not to those who believe but to the unbelievers; but prophecy is for a sign not to the unbelievers but to those who believe.
23 If therefore the whole church acomes together in one place, and 1all speak in tongues, and some unlearned in tongues or unbelievers enter, will they not say that you are 2binsane?
24 But if 1aall prophesy and some unbeliever or unlearned person enters, he is 2convicted by all, he is 2examined by all;
25 The secrets of his aheart become manifest; and so bfalling on his face, he will worship 1God, declaring that indeed 1God is camong you.
