1 Corinthians 2

CHAPTER 2

The Wisdom of God Revealed

And I having come to you, brethren, I came not according to superiority of word or wisdom, announcing to you the testimony of God. [3not 1For 2I decided] to know anything among you except Jesus Christ, and this one being crucified. And I in weakness, and in fear, and in [2trembling 1much] was with you; and my word, and my proclaiming was not in persuasive human [2of wisdom 1words], but in a demonstration of spirit and power; that the belief of yours should not be in wisdom of men, but in power of God. [3wisdom 1But 2we speak] among the ones completed; but wisdom not of this eon, nor of the rulers of this eon of the ones being rendered useless. But we speak wisdom of God in a mystery, the one being concealed, which God predefined before the eons for our glory; which not one of the rulers of this eon has known. For if they knew, [3not 2would 5the 6Lord 7of glory 1they 4have crucified]. But as it has been written, That which eye saw not, and ear heard not, and into the heart of man ascended not, which God prepared to the ones loving him. 10 But to us God revealed by his spirit. For the spirit searches all things, even the deep things of God. 11 For who [2knows 1of men] the things of man, except the spirit of the man, the one in him? So also the things of God no one knows, except the spirit of God. 12 But we [2not 3the 4spirit 5of the 6world 1received], but the spirit, the one from God, that we should know the things [3by 4God 1being granted 2to us]. 13 Which also we speak not in [2instructed 3by human 4wisdom 1words], but by words instructed [2spirit 1of holy]; [3in spiritual ways 1spiritual things 2being interpreted]. 14 But the physical man does not receive the things of the spirit of God; [3moronishness 1for 4to him 2they are], and he is not able to know them, for [2spiritually 1they are examined]. 15 But the spiritual examines indeed all things, but he [2by 3no one 1is examined]. 16 For who knew the mind of the Lord? Who instructs him? But we [2the mind 3of Christ 1have].
