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.|
