1st Corinthians 2

1And I, brethren, when I came to you, came not in the highness of word, either of wisdom, telling, [or showing], to you the witnessing of Christ.
2For I deemed not me to know anything among you, but Christ Jesus, and him crucified.
3And I in sickness, and dread, and in much trembling, was among you [or was with you];
4and my word and my preaching was not in subtly stirring [or persuad-able] words of man’s wisdom, but in showing of Spirit and of virtue;
5that your faith be not in the wisdom of men, but in the virtue of God.
6For we speak wisdom among perfect men, but not wisdom of this world, neither of princes of this world, that be destroyed;
7but we speak the wisdom of God in mystery, which wisdom is hid; which wisdom God before-ordained before worlds into our glory,
8which none of the princes of this world knew; for if they had known, they should never have crucified the Lord of glory.
9But as it is written, That eye saw not, nor ear heard, neither it ascended into the heart of man, what things God arrayed [or made ready before] to them that love him;
10but God showed to us by his Spirit. For why the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God.
11And who of men knoweth, what things be of man, but the spirit of man that is in him? So what things be of God, no man knoweth, but the Spirit of God.
12And we have not received the spirit of this world, but the Spirit that is of God, that we know what things be given to us of God.
13Which things we speak also, not in wise [or in taught] words of man’s wisdom, but in the doctrine of the Spirit, and make a likeness [or a comparison] of spiritual things to ghostly men.
14For a beastly man perceiveth not those things that be of the Spirit of God; for it is folly to him, and he may not understand, for it is examined, [or assayed], ghostly.
15But a spiritual man deemeth all things, and he is deemed of no man.
16As it is written, And who knew the wit of the Lord, or who taught him? And we have the wit of Christ.
