12Now we 1have received, not the spirit of 2the world, but the Spiritwho is from God, so that we may know the thingsfreelygiven to us by God,
13which things we alsospeak, 3not in wordstaught by humanwisdom, but in those taught by the Spirit, acombiningspiritual thoughts with spiritual words.
But ba 4naturalman5does not accept the things of the Spirit of God, for they are 6foolishness to him; and he cannotunderstand them, because they are spirituallycappraised.
But he who is 7spiritualappraisesallthings, yet he himself is appraised by noone.
For 8WHO HAS KNOWN THE MIND OF THE LORD, THAT HE WILL INSTRUCT HIM? But 9 we have the mind of Christ.
