Pristine Grace

1 Cor 1:18-25, (KJV)
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.
19  For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent.
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?
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 believe.
22  For the Jews require a sign, and the Greeks seek after wisdom:
23  But we preach Christ crucified, unto the Jews a stumblingblock, and unto the Greeks foolishness;
24  But unto them which are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God.
25  Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the weakness of God is stronger than men.

1 Cor 1:18-25, (MKJV)
18  For the preaching of the cross is foolishness to those being lost, but to us being saved, it is the power of God.
19  For it is written, "I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and I will set aside the understanding of the perceiving ones."
20  Where is the wise? Where is the scribe? Where is the lawyer of this world? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of this world?
21  For since, in the wisdom of God, the world by wisdom did not know God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save those who believe.
22  For the Jews ask for a sign, and the Greeks seek after wisdom;
23  but we preach Christ crucified, to the Jews a stumbling block, and to the Greeks foolishness.
24  But to them, the called-out ones, both Jews and Greeks, Christ is the power of God and the wisdom of God.
25  Because the foolish thing of God is wiser than men, and the weak thing of God is stronger than men.

1 Cor 1:18-25, (NASB)
18  For the word of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.
19  For it is written, "I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, And the cleverness of the clever I will set aside."
20  Where is the wise man? Where is the scribe? Where is the debater of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of the world?
21  For since in the wisdom of God the world through its wisdom did not come to know God, God was well-pleased through the foolishness of the message preached to save those who believe.
22  For indeed Jews ask for signs and Greeks search for wisdom;
23  but we preach Christ crucified, to Jews a stumbling block and to Gentiles foolishness,
24  but to those who are the called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God.
25  Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men, and the weakness of God is stronger than men.

1 Cor 1:18-25, (LITV)
18  For the Word of the cross is foolishness to those being lost, but to us being saved, it is the power of God.
19  For it has been written, "I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and I will set aside the understanding of the understanding ones." Isa. 29:14
20  Where is the wise? Where the scribe? Where the lawyer of this world? Did God not make the wisdom of this world foolish?
21  For since in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom did not know God, God was pleased through the foolishness of preaching to save the ones believing.
22  And since Jews ask for a sign, and Greeks seek wisdom,
23  we, on the other hand, preach Christ crucified (truly an offense to Jews, and foolishness to Greeks),
24  but to the called out ones, both to Jews and to Greeks, Christ is the power of God and the wisdom of God;
25  because the foolish thing of God is wiser than men, and the weak thing of God is stronger than men.
