Paul’s Message by the Spirit’s Power

1And I brethren, when I came to you, came not in gloriousnesse of wordes, or of wisedome, shewing vnto you the testimonie of God. 2For I esteemed not to knowe any thyng among you saue Iesus Christe, and hym crucified. 3And I was among you in weaknesse, and in feare, and in much tremblyng. 4And my wordes and my preachyng was not with entysing wordes of mans wisedome, but in shewyng of the spirite, and of power: 5That your fayth should not stande in the wisedome of men, but in the power of God.

Spiritual Wisdom
(Ephesians 1:15–23)

6And we speake wisedome among the that are perfite: not the wisedome of this world, neither of the princes of this world, which come to naught. 7But we speake the wisedome of God in a misterie euen the hyd wisedome which God ordeyned before the worlde, vnto our glorie. 8Which none of ye princes of this world knewe: For had they knowen it, they woulde not haue crucified the Lorde of glorie.

9But as it is written: The eye hath not seen, & the eare hath not heard, neither haue entred into the heart of man, the thynges which God hath prepared for them that loue hym.

10But God hath reuealed the vnto vs by his spirite: For the spirite searcheth all thinges, yea the deepe thinges of God. 11For what man knoweth the thynges of a man, saue ye spirite of man which is in hym? Euen so, the thinges of God, knoweth no man, but ye spirite of God. 12And we haue receaued, not the spirite of the worlde, but the spirite which is of God, that we myght know the thinges that are geuen to vs of God. 13Which thynges also we speake, not in the wordes which mans wisedome teacheth, but which ye holy ghost teacheth, comparyng spirituall thynges with spirituall thynges.

14But the naturall man perceaueth not the thynges of ye spirite of God, for they are foolyshenesse vnto hym: Neither can he knowe them because they are spiritually discerned. 15But he that is spirituall, discerneth all thynges, yet he hym selfe is iudged of no man. 16For who hath knowen the mynde of the Lorde, that he myght instruct hym? But we haue the mynde of Christe.
