1 Corinthians 2:7-14 (New International Version)

View In My Bible
7 No, we speak of God's secret wisdom, a wisdom1 that has been hidden2 and that God destined for our glory before time began. 8 None of the rulers of this age3 understood it, for if they had, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory.4 9 However, as it is written: "No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived what God has prepared for those who love him"a5-- 10 but God has revealed6 it to us by his Spirit.7 The Spirit searches all things, even the deep things of God. 11 For who among men knows the thoughts of a man8 except the man's spirit9 within him? In the same way no one knows the thoughts of God except the Spirit of God. 12 We have not received the spirit10 of the world11 but the Spirit who is from God, that we may understand what God has freely given us. 13 This is what we speak, not in words taught us by human wisdom12 but in words taught by the Spirit, expressing spiritual truths in spiritual words.b 14 The man without the Spirit does not accept the things that come from the Spirit of God,13 for they are foolishness14 to him, and he cannot understand them, because they are spiritually discerned.
