11 For who among men knows the thoughts of a man except the 1spirit of the man which is in him? Even so the thoughts of God no one knows except the Spirit of God.
12 Now we 2have received, not the spirit of 3the world, but the Spirit who is from God, so that we may know the things freely given to us by God,
13 which things we also speak, 4not in words taught by human wisdom, but in those taught by the Spirit, combining spiritual thoughts with spiritual words.
14 But a 5natural man 6does not accept the things of the Spirit of God, for they are 7foolishness to him; and he cannot * understand them, because they are spiritually appraised.
15 But he who is 8spiritual appraises all things, yet he himself is appraised by no one.
16 For 9WHO HAS KNOWN THE MIND OF THE LORD, THAT HE WILL INSTRUCT HIM? But 10 we have the mind of Christ.
