1 And I, brethren, when I came to you, came not with excellency of speech or of wisdom, declaring unto you the a of God.
2 For I determined not to know any thing among you, a Jesus Christ, and him b.
3 And I was with you in a, and in fear, and in much trembling.
4 And my a and my preaching was not with b words of man’s wisdom, but in demonstration of the c and of d:
5 That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the a of God.
6 Howbeit we speak wisdom among them that are a: yet not the wisdom of this world, nor of the princes of this world, that come to nought:
7 But we speak the a of God in a b, even the hidden c, which God d before the world unto our glory:
8 Which none of the princes of this world knew: for had they known it, they would not have a the Lord of glory.
9 But as it is written, a hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath b for them that love him.
10 But God hath a them unto us by his b: for the c d all things, yea, the deep things of God.
11 For what man a the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? even so the things of God b no man, c the d of God.
12 Now we have received, not the a of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God.
13 Which things also we speak, not in the words which man’s a teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost b; comparing spiritual things with spiritual.
14 But the a b not the things of the c of God: for they are d unto him: neither can he e them, because they are f g.
15 But he that is spiritual a all things, yet he himself is judged of no man.
16 For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may a him? But we have the b of Christ.
