20 (A)Where is the one who is wise? Where is the scribe? Where is the debater of this age? (B)Has not God made foolish the wisdom of the world? 21 For since, in the wisdom of God, the world did not know God through wisdom, it pleased God through the folly of what we preach[a] to save those who believe. 22 For (C)Jews demand signs and Greeks seek wisdom, 23 but we preach Christ (D)crucified, a stumbling block to Jews and folly to Gentiles, 24 but to those who are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ (E)the power of God and (F)the wisdom of God. 25 For the foolishness of God is wiser than men, and the weakness of God is stronger than men.
