1 PAUL, called to be an apostle of Jesus Christ by the will of God, and Sosthenes the brother,
2 to the church of God which is at Corinth, to the sanctified in Jesus Christ, called to be saints, with all that call on the name of our Lord Jesus Christ in every place, both theirs and ours.
10 I exhort you, brothers, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that you all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be perfected in the same mind and the same will.
11 For I have been informed of you, my brothers, by the family of Chloe, that there are contentions among you.
12 I mean this; that each one of you says I indeed am of Paul, and I of Apollos, and I of Cephas, and I of Christ.
16 And I also baptized the family of Stephanus; besides I do not know that I baptized any other.
17 For Christ sent me not to baptize but to preach the good news, not with a wisdom of speech lest the cross of Christ should be without effect.
19 For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the intelligent.
20 Where is the wise? where the scribe? where the disputer of this life? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of the world?
21 For since, in the wisdom of God, the world by wisdom knew not God, God was pleased by the foolishness of preaching to save those that believe;
23 we preach Christ crucified, to the Jews indeed an offense, and to the gentiles foolishness,
25 for the foolishness of God is wiser than men, and the weakness of God is stronger than men.
26 For you see your calling, brothers, that not many wise according to the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble [are called];
27 but God has chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise, and the weak things of the world has God chosen to put to shame the mighty,
28 and the ignoble things of the world and things that are despised has God chosen, and things that are not, to destroy things that are,
30 But you are of him in Christ Jesus, who has become to us wisdom from God, and righteousness, and sanctification and redemption,
