2:1 And I, brethren, when I came to you, came not in the highness of word, or of wisdom, telling to you the witnessing of Christ. And I brethren when I came to you, came not in gloriousness of words or of wisdom, shewing unto you the testimony of God. And I, brethren, when I came to you, came not with excellency of words, or of wisdom, shewing unto you the testimony of God. And I, brethren, when I came to you, came not with excellency of speech, or of wisdom, declaring unto you the testimony of God.
2:2 For I deemed not in me to know any thing among you, but Christ Jesus, and him crucified. Neither shewed I myself that I knew any thing among you save Jesus Christ, even the same that was crucified. For I esteemed not to know any thing among you, save Jesus Christ, and him crucified. For I determined not to know any thing among you, save Jesus Christ, and him crucified.
2:3 And I in sickness, and dread, and much trembling, was with you; And I was among you in weakness, and in fear, and in much trembling. And I was among you in weakness, and in fear, & in much trembling. And I was with you in weakness, and in fear, and in much trembling.
2:4 and my word and my preaching was not in subtly stirring words of man’s wisdom, but in shewing of Spirit and of virtue; And my words, and my preaching were not with enticing words of man’s wisdom: but in shewing of the spirit and of power, Neither stood my word, & my preaching in the enticing speech of man’s wisdom, but in plain evidence of the Spirit and of power, 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 be not in the wisdom of men, but in the virtue of God. that your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of god. That your faith should not be in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God. That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God.
2:6 For we speak wisdom among perfect men, but not wisdom of this world, neither of princes of this world, that be destroyed; We speak that which is wisdom among them that are perfect: not the wisdom of this world neither of the rulers of this world (which goeth to nought) And we speak wisdom among them that are perfect: not the wisdom of this world, neither of the princes of this world, which come to nought. Howbeit 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 nought:
2:7 but we speak the wisdom of God in mystery, which wisdom is hid; the which God before-ordained before worlds into our glory, but we speak the wisdom of god, which is in secret and lieth hid, which god ordained before the world unto our glory: But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hid wisdom, which God had determined before the world, unto our glory. But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom which God ordained before the world, unto our glory.
2:8 which none of the princes of this world knew; for if they had known, they should never have crucified the Lord of glory. which wisdom none of the rulers of the world knew. For had they known it, they would not have crucified the lord of glory: Which none of the princes of this world hath known: for had they known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory. 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, That eye saw not, nor ear heard, neither it ascended into the heart of man, what things God made ready before to them that love him; but as it is written The eye hath not seen, and the ear hath not heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which god hath prepared for them that love him. But as it is written, The things which eye hath not seen, neither ear hath heard, neither came into man’s heart, are, which God hath prepared for them that love him. 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 shewed to us by his Spirit. For why the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God. But God hath opened them unto us by his spirit. For the spirit searcheth all things, yea the bottom of god’s secrets. But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God. But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit. for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God.
2:11 And who of men knoweth, what things be of man, but the spirit of man that is in him? and what things be of God, no man knoweth, but the Spirit of God. For what man knoweth the things of a man: save the spirit of a man which is within him? Even so the things of god knoweth no man, but the spirit of god. For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of a man, which is in him? even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God. 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 And 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. and we have not received the spirit of the world: but the spirit which cometh of god, for to know the things that are given to us of god, Now we have received not the Spirit of the world, but the Spirit, which is of God, that we might know the things that are given to us of God. Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit which is of God, that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God.
2:13 The which things we speak, not in taught words of man’s wisdom, but in doctrine of the Spirit, comparisoning spiritual things to ghostly men. which things also we speak, not in the cunning words of man’s wisdom, but with the cunning words of the holy ghost, making spiritual comparisons of spiritual things. Which things also we speak, not in the words which man’s wisdom teacheth, but which the holy Ghost teacheth, comparing spiritual things with spiritual things. Which things also we speak, not in the words which man’s wisdom teacheth, but which the holy Ghost teacheth, comparing spiritual things with spiritual.
2:14 For 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 ghostly. For the natural man perceiveth not the things of the spirit of god: For they are but foolishness unto him. neither can he perceive them because he is spiritually examined: But the natural man perceiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned. But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.
2:15 But a spiritual man deemeth all things, and he is deemed of no man. but he that is spiritual discusseth all things: yet he himself is judged of no man. But he that is spiritual, discerneth all things: yet he himself is judged of no man. But he that is spiritual, judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no man.
2:16 As it is written, And who knew the wit of the Lord, or who taught him? And we have the wit of Christ. For who knoweth the mind of the lord, other who shall inform him? but we understand the mind of Christ. For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he might instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ. For who hath known the mind of the Lord that he may instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ.
