1st Corinthians   chapter 1

       1 Paul, called to be an apostle of Jesus Christ
      through the will of God, and Sosthenes our
       2 Unto the church of God which is at Corinth, to
      them that are sanctified in Christ Jesus, called
      to be saints, with all that in every place call
      upon the name of Jesus Christ our Lord, both
      theirs and ours:
       3 Grace be unto you, and peace, from God our
      Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ.
       4 I thank my God always on your behalf, for the
      grace of God which is given you by Jesus Christ;
       5 That in every thing ye are enriched by him, in
      all utterance, and in all knowledge;
       6 Even as the testimony of Christ was confirmed
      in you:
       7 So that ye come behind in no gift; waiting for
      the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ:
       8 Who shall also confirm you unto the end, that
      ye may be blameless in the day of our Lord Jesus
       9 God is faithful, by whom ye were called unto
      the fellowship of his Son Jesus Christ our Lord.
      10 Now I beseech you, brethren, by the name of
      our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye all speak the same
      thing, and that there be no divisions among you;
      but that ye be perfectly joined together in the
      same mind and in the same judgment.
      11 For it hath been declared unto me of you, my
      brethren, by them which are of the house of
      Chloe, that there are contentions among you.
      12 Now this I say, that every one of you saith, I
      am of Paul; and I of Apollos; and I of Cephas;
      and I of Christ.
      13 Is Christ divided? was Paul crucified for you?
      or were ye baptized in the name of Paul?
      14 I thank God that I baptized none of you, but
      Crispus and Gaius;
      15 Lest any should say that I had baptized in
      mine own name.
      16 And I baptized also the household of
      Stephanas: besides, I know not whether I baptized
      any other.
      17 For Christ sent me not to baptize, but to
      preach the gospel: not with wisdom of words, lest
      the cross of Christ should be made of none
      18 For the preaching of the cross is to them that
      perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved
      it is the power of God.
      19 For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom
      of the wise, and will bring to nothing the
      understanding of the prudent.
      20 Where is the wise? where is the scribe? where
      is the disputer of this world? hath not God made
      foolish the wisdom of this world?
      21 For after that in the wisdom of God the world
      by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the
      foolishness of preaching to save them that
      22 For the Jews require a sign, and the Greeks
      seek after wisdom:
      23 But we preach Christ crucified, unto the Jews
      a stumblingblock, and unto the Greeks
      24 But unto them which 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
      26 For ye see your calling, brethren, how that
      not many wise men after the flesh, not many
      mighty, not many noble, are called:
      27 But God hath chosen the foolish things of the
      world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen
      the weak things of the world to confound the
      things which are mighty;
      28 And base things of the world, and things which
      are despised, hath God chosen, yea, and things
      which are not, to bring to nought things that
      29 That no flesh should glory in his presence.
      30 But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God
      is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and
      sanctification, and redemption:
      31 That, according as it is written, He that
      glorieth, let him glory in the Lord. 1st Corinthians chapter 2
