2:1 And I, brethren, when I came to you, came not with excellency of speech or of wisdom, declaring unto you the testimony of .

2:2 For I determined not to know any thing among you, save the Messiah, and him crucified.

2:3 And I was with you in weakness, and in fear, and in much trembling.

2:4 And my speech and my preaching was not with enticing words of man's wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power:

2:5 That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of .

2:6 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:

2:15 But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no man.

2:16 For who hath known the mind of , that he may instruct him? But we have the mind of the Messiah.
