so that your faith might not rest on human wisdom, but on God’s power.(A)

God’s Wisdom Revealed by the Spirit

We do, however, speak a message of wisdom among the mature,(B) but not the wisdom of this age(C) or of the rulers of this age, who are coming to nothing.(D) No, we declare God’s wisdom, a mystery(E) that has been hidden(F) and that God destined for our glory before time began. None of the rulers of this age(G) understood it, for if they had, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory.(H) However, as it is written:

“What no eye has seen,
    what no ear has heard,
and what no human mind has conceived”[a]
    the things God has prepared for those who love him—(I)

10 these are the things God has revealed(J) to us by his Spirit.(K)

The Spirit searches all things, even the deep things of God. 11 For who knows a person’s thoughts(L) except their own spirit(M) within them? In the same way no one knows the thoughts of God except the Spirit of God.
