Chapter 2

And I, brethren, when I came to you, came not with excellency of speech or of wisdom, declaring unto you the testimony of God.
speech 2nd Cor 11:6

For I determined not to know any thing among you, save Jesus Christ, and him crucified.
save Gal 6:14

And I was with you in weakness, and in fear, and in much trembling.
weakness 2nd Cor 10:1, Gal 4:13

And my speech and my preaching was not with enticing words of man's wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power:
enticing 2nd Peter 1:16

That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God.
power 2nd Cor 4:7, 1st Peter 1:5

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:
perfect Eph 4:13
wisdom James 3:15

But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory:
hidden Psalms 8:2, Matt 11:25, 1st Cor 1:27, 2nd Cor 3:14
before Romans 16:25, 2nd Tim 1:9

Which none of the princes of this world knew: for had they known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory.
knew Acts 13:27

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.
Eye Isa 64:4
prepared Matt 25:34, Heb 11:16

But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God.
revealed Matt 11:25, 13:11, 16:17, Mark 4:11, Luke 8:10, Col 1:26, 1st John 2:27

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.

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.
spirit which is of God Romans 8:15

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.

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.
man Matt 16:23
can he know Romans 8:5, Jude 19

But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no man.
judgeth Prov 28:5

For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ.
Isa 40:14
mind Psa 25:14, John 15:15
