1 Corinthians 2:7–14

On the contrary, we speak God’s hidden wisdom in a mystery, a wisdom God predestinedo before the ages for our glory.p None of the rulers of this age knew this wisdom, because if they had known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory.q But as it is written,

What no eye has seen, no ear has heard,

and no human heart has conceived—

God has prepared these things for those who love him.D,r

10 Now God has revealed these things to us by the Spirit, since the Spirit searches everything,s even the depths of God.t 11 For who knows a person’s thoughtsE except his spiritu within him? In the same way, no one knowsv the thoughts of God except the Spirit of God. 12 Now we have not received the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who comes from God, so that we may understand what has been freely given to us by God. 13 We also speak these things, not in wordsw taught by human wisdom, but in those taught by the Spirit, explaining spiritual things to spiritual people.F 14 But the person without the SpiritG does not receive what comes from God’s Spirit, because it is foolishness to him; he is not able to understand it since it is evaluated* spiritually.
