1 Corinthians 2

2:1 And I, having come unto you, brethren, came--not in superiority of discourse or wisdom--declaring to you the testimony of God, 2:2 for I decided not to know any thing among you, except Jesus Christ, and him crucified; 2:3 and I, in weakness, and in fear, and in much trembling, was with you; 2:4 and my word and my preaching was not in persuasive words of human wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power-- 2:5 that your faith may not be in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God.  2:6 And wisdom we speak among the perfect, and wisdom not of this age, nor of the rulers of this age--of those becoming useless, 2:7 but we speak the hidden wisdom of God in a secret, that God foreordained before the ages to our glory, 2:8 which no one of the rulers of this age did know, for if they had known, the Lord of the glory they would not have crucified; 2:9 but, according as it hath been written, `What eye did not see, and ear did not hear, and upon the heart of man came not up, what God did prepare for those loving Him--' 2:10 but to us did God reveal [them] through His Spirit, for the Spirit all things doth search, even the depths of God, 2:11 for who of men hath known the things of the man, except the spirit of the man that [is] in him so also the things of God no one hath known, except the Spirit of God. 2:12 And we the spirit of the world did not receive, but the Spirit that [is] of God, that we may know the things conferred by God on us, 2:13 which things also we speak, not in words taught by human wisdom, but in those taught by the Holy Spirit, with spiritual things spiritual things comparing, 2:14 and the natural man doth not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for to him they are foolishness, and he is not able to know [them] , because spiritually they are discerned; 2:15 and he who is spiritual, doth discern indeed all things, and he himself is by no one discerned; 2:16 for who did know the mind of the Lord that he shall instruct Him and we--we have the mind of Christ.
