1st Corinthians Chapter 1
1:18 For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness;
but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.
1:19 For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will
bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent.
1:20 Where is the wise? where is the scribe? where is the disputer of
this world? hath not God made foolish the wisdom of this world?
1:21 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
1:22 For the Jews require a sign, and the Greeks seek after wisdom:
1:23 But we preach Christ crucified, unto the Jews a stumblingblock, and
unto the Greeks foolishness;
1:24 But unto them which are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the
power of God, and the wisdom of God.
1:25 Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the weakness
of God is stronger than men.
1:26 For ye see your calling, brethren, how that not many wise men after
the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called:
1:27 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;
1:28 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
1:29 That no flesh should glory in his presence.
1:30 But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us
wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption:
1:31 That, according as it is written, He that glorieth, let him glory
in the Lord.
