1 Corinthians 2 (ASV)

[1] And I, brethren, when I came unto you, came not with excellency of speech or of wisdom, proclaiming to you the testimony of God.
[2] For I determined not to know anything among you, save Jesus Christ, and him crucified.
[3] And I was with you in weakness, and in fear, and in much trembling.
[4] And my speech and my preaching were not in persuasive words of wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power:
[5] that your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God.
[6] We speak wisdom, however, among them that are fullgrown: yet a wisdom not of this world, nor of the rulers of this world, who are coming to nought:
[7] but we speak God’s wisdom in a mystery, even the wisdom that hath been hidden, which God foreordained before the worlds unto our glory:
[8] which none of the rulers of this world hath known: for had they known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory:
[9] but as it is written, Things which eye saw not, and ear heard not, And which entered not into the heart of man, Whatsoever things God prepared for them that love him.
[10] But unto us God revealed them through the Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God.
[11] For who among men knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of the man, which is in him? even so the things of God none knoweth, save the Spirit of God.
[12] But we received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is from God; that we might know the things that were freely given to us of God.
[13] Which things also we speak, not in words which man’s wisdom teacheth, but which the Spirit teacheth; combining spiritual things with spiritual words.
[14] Now the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him; and he cannot know them, because they are spiritually judged.
[15] But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, and he himself is judged of no man.
[16] For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he should instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ.

King James w/Strong’s #s

1 Corinthians 2 (KJVS)

[1] And I G2504, brethren G80, when I came G2064 (Aor2ActPtc) to G4314 you G5209, came G2064 (Aor2ActInd) not G3756 with G2596 excellency G5247 of speech G3056 or G2228 of wisdom G4678, declaring G2605 (PresActPtc) unto you G5213 the testimony G3142 of God G2316.
[2] For G1063 I determined G2919 (AorActInd) not G3756 to know G1492 (PerfActInf) any thing G5100 among G1722 you G5213, save G1508 Jesus G2424 Christ G5547, and G2532 him G5126 crucified G4717 (PerfPasPtc).
[3] And G2532 I G1473 was G1096 (Aor2MidDepInd) with G4314 you G5209 in G1722 weakness G769, and G2532 in G1722 fear G5401, and G2532 in G1722 much G4183 trembling G5156.
[4] And G2532 my G3450 speech G3056 and G2532 my G3450 preaching G2782 [was] not G3756 with G1722 enticing G3981 words G3056 of man’s G442 wisdom G4678, but G235 in G1722 demonstration G585 of the Spirit G4151 and G2532 of power G1411:
[5] That G2443 your G5216 faith G4102 should G5600 not G3361 stand G5600 (PresSubj) in G1722 the wisdom G4678 of men G444, but G235 in G1722 the power G1411 of God G2316.
[6] Howbeit G1161 we speak G2980 (PresActInd) wisdom G4678 among G1722 them that are perfect G5046: yet G1161 not G3756 the wisdom G4678 of this G5127 world G165, nor G3761 of the princes G758 of this G5127 world G165, that come to nought G2673 (PresPasPtc):
[7] But G235 we speak G2980 (PresActInd) the wisdom G4678 of God G2316 in G1722 a mystery G3466, [even] the hidden G613 (PerfPasPtc) [wisdom], which G3739 God G2316 ordained G4309 (AorActInd) before G4253 the world G165 unto G1519 our G2257 glory G1391:
[8] Which G3739 none G3762 of the princes G758 of this G5127 world G165 knew G1097 (PerfActInd): for G1487 G1063 had they known G1097 (Aor2ActInd) [it], they G302 would G4717 not G3756 have crucified G4717 (AorActInd) the Lord G2962 of glory G1391.
[9] But G235 as G2531 it is written G1125 (PerfPasInd), G3739 Eye G3788 hath G1492 not G3756 seen G1492 (Aor2ActInd), nor G2532 G3756 ear G3775 heard G191 (AorActInd), neither G2532 G3756 have entered G305 (Aor2ActInd) into G1909 the heart G2588 of man G444, the things which G3739 God G2316 hath prepared G2090 (AorActInd) for them that love G25 (PresActPtc) him G846.
[10] But G1161 God G2316 hath revealed G601 (AorActInd) [them] unto us G2254 by G1223 his G846 Spirit G4151: for G1063 the Spirit G4151 searcheth G2045 (PresActInd) all things G3956, yea G2532, the deep things G899 of God G2316.
[11] For G1063 what G5101 man G444 knoweth G1492 (PerfActInd) the things G3588 of a man G444, save G1508 the spirit G4151 of man G444 which G3588 is in G1722 him G846? even G2532 so G3779 the things G3588 of God G2316 knoweth G1492 (PerfActInd) no man G3762, but G1508 the Spirit G4151 of God G2316.
[12] Now G1161 we G2249 have received G2983 (Aor2ActInd), not G3756 the spirit G4151 of the world G2889, but G235 the spirit G4151 which G3588 is of G1537 God G2316; that G2443 we might know G1492 (PerfActSubj) the things that are freely given G5483 (AorPasPtc) to us G2254 of G5259 God G2316.
[13] Which things G3739 also G2532 we speak G2980 (PresActInd), not G3756 in G1722 the words G3056 which man’s G442 wisdom G4678 teacheth G1318, but G235 which the Holy G40 Ghost G4151 teacheth G1722 G1318; comparing G4793 (PresActPtc) spiritual things G4152 with spiritual G4152.
[14] But G1161 the natural G5591 man G444 receiveth G1209 (PresMidPasDepInd) not G3756 the things G3588 of the Spirit G4151 of God G2316: for G1063 they are G2076 (PresInd) foolishness G3472 unto him G846: neither G2532 G3756 can G1410 (PresMidPasDepInd) he know G1097 (Aor2ActInf) [them], because G3754 they are spiritually G4153 discerned G350 (PresPasInd).
[15] But G1161 he that is spiritual G4152 judgeth G350 (PresActInd) G3303 all things G3956, yet G1161 he himself G846 is judged G350 (PresPasInd) of G5259 no man G3762.
[16] For G1063 who G5101 hath known G1097 (Aor2ActInd) the mind G3563 of the Lord G2962, that G3739 he may instruct G4822 (FutActInd) him G846? But G1161 we G2249 have G2192 (PresActInd) the mind G3563 of Christ G5547.

Young’s Literal Translation

1 Corinthians 2 (YLT)

[1] And I, having come unto you, brethren, came-not in superiority of discourse or wisdom-declaring to you the testimony of God,
[2] for I decided not to know any thing among you, except Jesus Christ, and him crucified;
[3] and I, in weakness, and in fear, and in much trembling, was with you;
[4] and my word and my preaching was not in persuasive words of human wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power-
[5] that your faith may not be in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God.
[6] And wisdom we speak among the perfect, and wisdom not of this age, nor of the rulers of this age-of those becoming useless,
[7] but we speak the hidden wisdom of God in a secret, that God foreordained before the ages to our glory,
[8] which no one of the rulers of this age did know, for if they had known, the Lord of the glory they would not have crucified;
[9] but, according as it hath been written, ‘What eye did not see, and ear did not hear, and upon the heart of man came not up, what God did prepare for those loving Him-‘
[10] but to us did God reveal them through His Spirit, for the Spirit all things doth search, even the depths of God,
[11] for who of men hath known the things of the man, except the spirit of the man that is in him? so also the things of God no one hath known, except the Spirit of God.
[12] And we the spirit of the world did not receive, but the Spirit that is of God, that we may know the things conferred by God on us,
[13] which things also we speak, not in words taught by human wisdom, but in those taught by the Holy Spirit, with spiritual things spiritual things comparing,
[14] and the natural man doth not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for to him they are foolishness, and he is not able to know them, because spiritually they are discerned;
[15] and he who is spiritual, doth discern indeed all things, and he himself is by no one discerned;
[16] for who did know the mind of the Lord that he shall instruct Him? and we-we have the mind of Christ.
