but God has revealed1 it to us by his Spirit.2 The Spirit searches all things, even the deep things of God.
For who among men knows the thoughts of a man3 except the man's spirit4 within him? In the same way no one knows the thoughts of God except the Spirit of God.
We have not received the spirit5 of the world6 but the Spirit who is from God, that we may understand what God has freely given us.
This is what we speak, not in words taught us by human wisdom7 but in words taught by the Spirit, expressing spiritual truths in spiritual words.a
