Pristine Grace

1 Cor 2:1-16, (KJV)
1  And I, brethren, when I came to you, came not with excellency of speech or of wisdom, declaring unto you the testimony of God.
2  For I determined not to know any thing among you, save Jesus Christ, and him crucified.
3  And I was with you in weakness, and in fear, and in much trembling.
4  And my speech and my preaching was not with enticing words of man's wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power:
5  That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God.
6  Howbeit we speak wisdom among them that are perfect: yet not the wisdom of this world, nor of the princes of this world, that come to nought:
7  But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory:
8  Which none of the princes of this world knew: for had they known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory.
9  But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.
10  But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God.
11  For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God.
12  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.
13  Which things also we speak, not in the words which man's wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual.
14  But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.
15  But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no man.
16  For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? but we have the mind of Christ.

1 Cor 2:1-16, (MKJV)
1  And I, brothers, when I came to you, did not come with excellency of speech or of wisdom, declaring to you the testimony of God.
2  For I determined not to know anything among you except Jesus Christ and Him crucified.
3  And I was with you in weakness and in fear, and in much trembling.
4  And my speech and my preaching was not with enticing words of man's wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power,
5  so that your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God.
6  But, we speak wisdom among those who are perfect; yet not the wisdom of this world, nor of the rulers of this world, that come to nothing.
7  But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, which God has hidden, predetermining it before the world for our glory;
8  which none of the rulers of this world knew (for if they had known, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory).
9  But as it is written, "Eye has not seen, nor ear heard," nor has it entered into the heart of man, "the things which God has prepared for those who love Him."
10  But God has revealed them to us by His Spirit; for the Spirit searches all things, yea, the deep things of God.
11  For who among men knows the things of a man except the spirit of man within him? So also no one knows the things of God except the Spirit of God.
12  But we have not received the spirit of the world, but the Spirit from God, so that we might know the things that are freely given to us by God.
13  These things we also speak, not in words which man's wisdom teaches, but which the Holy Spirit teaches, comparing spiritual things with spiritual.
14  But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; neither can he know them , because they are spiritually discerned.
15  But he who is spiritual judges all things, yet he himself is judged by no one.
16  For who has known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct Him? But we have the mind of Christ.

1 Cor 2:1-16, (NASB)
1  And when I came to you, brethren, I did not come with superiority of speech or of wisdom, proclaiming to you the testimony of God.
2  For I determined to know nothing among you except Jesus Christ, and Him crucified.
3  I was with you in weakness and in fear and in much trembling,
4  and my message and my preaching were not in persuasive words of wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power,
5  so that your faith would not rest on the wisdom of men, but on the power of God.
6  Yet we do speak wisdom among those who are mature; a wisdom, however, not of this age nor of the rulers of this age, who are passing away;
7  but we speak God's wisdom in a mystery, the hidden wisdom which God predestined before the ages to our glory;
8  the wisdom which none of the rulers of this age has understood; for if they had understood it they would not have crucified the Lord of glory;
9  but just as it is written, "Things which eye has not seen and ear has not heard, And which have not entered the heart of man, All that God has prepared for those who love Him."
10  For to us God revealed them through the Spirit; for the Spirit searches all things, even the depths of God.
11  For who among men knows the thoughts of a man except the spirit of the man which is in him? Even so the thoughts of God no one knows except the Spirit of God.
12  Now we have received, not the spirit of the 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, not in words taught by human wisdom, but in those taught by the Spirit, combining spiritual thoughts with spiritual words.
14  But a natural man does not accept the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; and he cannot understand them, because they are spiritually appraised.
15  But he who is spiritual appraises all things, yet he himself is appraised by no one.
16  For who has known the mind of the Lord, that he will instruct Him? But we have the mind of Christ.

1 Cor 2:1-16, (LITV)
1  And when I came to you, brothers, I did not come with excellency of word or wisdom, declaring to you the Testimony of God.
2  For I decided not to know anything among you except Jesus Christ, and Him having been crucified.
3  And I was with you in weakness, and in fear, and in much trembling.
4  And my word and my preaching was not in enticing words of human wisdom, but in proof of the Spirit and of power,
5  that your faith might not be in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God.
6  But we speak wisdom among the perfect, but not the wisdom of this age, nor of the rulers of this age, those being brought to nothing.
7  But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, having been hidden, which God predetermined before the ages for our glory,
8  which none of the rulers of this age has known. For if they had known, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory;
9  according as it has been written, "Eye has not seen, and ear has not heard," nor has it risen up into the heart of man, the things which God has prepared for those that love Him. Isa. 64:4
10  But God revealed them to us by His Spirit, for the Spirit searches all things, even the depths of God.
11  For who among men knows the things of a man, except the spirit of a man within him? So also no one has known the things of God except the Spirit of God.
12  But we have not received the spirit of the world, but the Spirit from God, so that we might know the things that are freely given to us by God.
13  Which things we also speak, not in words taught in human wisdom, but in Words taught of the Holy Spirit, comparing spiritual things with spiritual things.
14  But a natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him, and he is not able to know them, because they are spiritually discerned.
15  But the spiritual one discerns all things, but he is discerned by no one.
16  For "who has known the mind of the Lord?" "Who will teach Him?" But we have the mind of Christ. Isa. 40:13
