1 Corinthians 1 : 23 - 2 : 4

Chapter 1

23but we preach Christ crucified, to the Jews a stumbling block and to the Greeks foolishness,
24but to those who are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God.
25Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men, and the weakness of God is stronger than men.
26For you see your calling, brethren, that not many wise according to the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called.
27But God has chosen the foolish things of the world to put to shame the wise, and God has chosen the weak things of the world to put to shame the things which are mighty;
28and the base things of the world and the things which are despised God has chosen, and the things which are not, to bring to nothing the things that are,
29that no flesh should glory in His presence.
30But of Him you are in Christ Jesus, who became for us wisdom from God--and righteousness and sanctification and redemption--
31that, as it is written, "He who glories, let him glory in the LORD."

Chapter 2

1And I, brethren, when I came to you, did not come with excellence of speech or of wisdom declaring to you the testimony of God.
2For I determined not to know anything among you except Jesus Christ and Him crucified.
3I was with you in weakness, in fear, and in much trembling.
4And my speech and my preaching were not with persuasive words of human wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power,
