First Corinthians 2


2:1 And I, brethren, when I came to you, came not with
 excellence of speech, or of wisdom, declaring to you the
 testimony of God.
2:2 For I determined not to know any thing among you, save Jesus
 Christ, and him crucified.
2:3 And I was with you in weakness, and in fear, and in much
 trembling.
2:4 And my speech and my preaching [was] not with enticing words
 of man's wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit, and of
 power:
2:5 That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but
 in the power of God.
2:6 However, we speak wisdom among them that are perfect: yet
 not the wisdom of this world, nor of the princes of this world,
 that come to naught:
2:7 But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, [even] the
 hidden [wisdom] which God ordained before the world to our
 glory:
2:8 Which none of the princes of this world knew: for had they
 known [it], they would not have crucified the Lord of glory.
2:9 But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard,
 neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which
 God hath prepared for them that love him.
2:10 But God hath revealed [them] to us by his Spirit; for the
 Spirit searcheth all things, even the deep things of God.
2:11 For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit
 of man which is in him? even so the things of God knoweth no
 man, but the Spirit of God.
2:12 Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the
 spirit which is from God; that we may know the things that are
 freely given to us by God.
2:13 Which things also we speak, not in the words which man's
 wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Spirit teacheth; comparing
 spiritual things with spiritual.
2:14 But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit
 of God: for they are foolishness to him: neither can he know
 [them], because they are spiritually discerned.
2:15 But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself
 is judged by no man.
2:16 For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may
 instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ.
