1 Corinthians 2:6-13

9 But as it is written:
(C)“Eye has not seen, nor ear heard,
Nor have entered into the heart of man
The things which God has prepared for those who love Him.”

For the Spirit searches all things, yes, the deep things of God. 11 For what man knows the things of a man except the (E)spirit of the man which is in him? (F)Even so no one knows the things of God except the Spirit of God. 12 Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but (G)the Spirit who is from God, that we might know the things that have been freely given to us by God.
