11 For who knows a person's thoughts (A)except the spirit of that person, which is in him? So also no one comprehends the thoughts of God except the Spirit of God. 12 Now (B)we have received not (C)the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, that we might understand the things freely given us by God. 13 And we impart this (D)in words not taught by human wisdom but taught by the Spirit, (E)interpreting spiritual truths to those who are spiritual.[a]
