For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe .
But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty;
And base things of the world, and things which are despised , hath God chosen , yea, and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are :
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.
For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written , He taketh the wise in their own craftiness.
Whether Paul, or Apollos, or Cephas, or the world, or life, or death, or things present , or things to come ; all are yours;
For I think that God hath set forth us the apostles last, as it were appointed to death: for we are made a spectacle unto the world, and to angels, and to men.
Being defamed , we intreat : we are made as the filth of the world, and are the offscouring of all things unto this day.
Yet not altogether with the fornicators of this world, or with the covetous, or extortioners, or with idolaters; for then must ye needs go out of the world.
Do ye not know that the saints shall judge the world? and if the world shall be judged by you, are ye unworthy to judge the smallest matters?
And they that use this world, as not abusing it: for the fashion of this world passeth away .
But he that is married careth for the things that are of the world, how he may please his wife.
There is difference also between a wife and a virgin. The unmarried woman careth for the things of the Lord, that she may be holy both in body and in spirit: but she that is married careth for the things of the world, how she may please her husband.
As concerning therefore the eating of those things that are offered in sacrifice unto idols, we know that an idol is nothing in the world, and that there is none other God but one.
There are , it may be , so many kinds of voices in the world, and none of them is without signification .
