But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory:
I will open my mouth in a parable; I will utter enigmas of old,
Thou hast heard it, thou hast seen it all; and will ye not declare it? I have showed thee new things from this time, even hidden things, and thou didst not know them.
At that time Jesus answered and said, I praise thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because thou hast hid these things from the wise and understanding and hast revealed them unto children.
that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, saying, I will open my mouth in parables; I will utter things which have been kept secret from the foundation of the world.
Now to him that is able to confirm you according to my gospel and the preaching of Jesus Christ, according to the revelation of the mystery which was concealed from times eternal
according as he has chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blemish before him in charity;
by which, when ye read, ye may understand my knowledge in the mystery of the Christ),
even the mystery which has been hid from ages and from generations, but now is made manifest to his saints,
2 Timothy 1:9
who has saved us and called us with a holy calling, not according to our works, but according to his own purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus before the times of the ages,
1 Peter 1:11
searching when and in what point of time the Spirit of Christ which was in them did signify, which announced beforehand the afflictions that were to come upon the Christ, and the glory that should follow them.
And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship it, whose names are not written in the book of the life of the Lamb that was slain from the foundation of the world.
