1 Corinthians 1:18-25 American Standard Version (ASV)
[c]I will destroy the wisdom of the wise,
20 Where is the wise? where is the scribe? where is the disputer of this [d]world? hath not God made foolish the wisdom of the world? 21 For seeing that in the wisdom of God the world through its wisdom knew not God, it was God’s good pleasure through the foolishness of the [e]preaching to save them that believe. 22 Seeing that Jews ask for signs, and Greeks seek after wisdom: 23 but we preach [f]Christ crucified, unto Jews a stumblingblock, and unto Gentiles foolishness; 24 but unto [g]them that are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God. 25 Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the weakness of God is stronger than men.
