For I resolved to know nothing while I was with you except Jesus Christ and him crucified.13
I came to you2 in weakness3 and fear, and with much trembling.44
My message and my preaching were not with wise and persuasive words,5 but with a demonstration of the Spirit's power,65
so that your faith might not rest on men's wisdom, but on God's power.7
We do, however, speak a message of wisdom among the mature,8 but not the wisdom of this age9 or of the rulers of this age, who are coming to nothing.107
No, we speak of God's secret wisdom, a wisdom11 that has been hidden12 and that God destined for our glory before time began.
