1 Corinthians 1:18–31

18 For the preaching of the cross is to lthem that perish mfoolishness; but unto us nwhich are saved it is othe power of God. 19 For it is written, pI will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will qbring to nothing the understanding of the prudent. 20 Where is the wise? rwhere is sthe scribe? where is the disputer ssof this world? thath not God umade foolish the wisdom uuof this world? 21 vFor after that pin the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, vvit pleased God by the mfoolishness of preaching to save them that believe. 22 For wthe Jews require a sign, and the Greeks seek after wisdom: 23 But wwwe preach Christ crucified, xunto the Jews a ystumblingblock, and unto the Greeks mfoolishness; 24 But unto them which are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ othe power of God, and zthe wisdom of God. 25 Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the weakness of God is stronger than men. 26 For aye see your bcalling, brethren, how that not many wise men after the flesh, cnot many dmighty, not many enoble, are called: 27 But fGod hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty; 28 And base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, yea, and gthings which are not, hto bring to nought things that are: 29 iThat no flesh should glory in his presence. 30 But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us zwisdom, and krighteousness, and lsanctification, and mredemption: 31 That, according as it is written, nHe that glorieth, let him glory in the Lord.
