 New English Bible << 1 Corinthians:2 >>Novum Testamentum Graece (UBS.Ed.26)  

1 As for me, brothers, when I came to you, I declared the attested truth of God [Some witnesses read: I declared God's secret purpose ...] without display of fine words or wisdom. Proclaiming Christ Crucified 1Cor.2.1-5Κἀγὼ ἐλθὼν πρὸς ὑμᾶς, ἀδελφοί, ἦλθον οὐ καθ' ὑπεροχὴν λόγου ἢ σοφίας καταγγέλλων ὑμῖν τὸ μυστήριον τοῦ θεοῦ.
2 I resolved that while I was with you I would think of nothing but Jesus Christ—Christ nailed to the cross.  οὐ γὰρ ἐκρινά τι εἰδέναι ἐν ὑμῖν εἰ μὴ Ἰησοῦν Χριστὸν - καὶ τοῦτον ἐσταυρωμένον.
3 I came before you weak, nervous and shaking with fear.  κἀγὼ ἐν ἀσθενείᾳ καὶ ἐν φόβῳ καὶ ἐν τρόμῳ πολλῷ ἐγενόμην πρὸς ὑμᾶς,
4 The word I spoke, the gospel I proclaimed, did not sway you with subtle arguments; it carried conviction by spiritual power,  καὶ ὁ λόγος μου καὶ τὸ κήρυγμά μου οὐκ ἐν πειθοῖ[ς] σοφίας [λόγοις] ἀλλ' ἐν ἀποδείξει πνεύματος καὶ δυνάμεως,
5 so that your faith might be built not upon human wisdom but upon the power of God.
 ἵνα ἡ πίστις ὑμῶν μὴ ᾖ ἐν σοφίᾳ ἀνθρώπων ἀλλ' ἐν δυνάμει θεοῦ.
6 And yet I do speak words of wisdom to those who are ripe for it, not a wisdom belonging to this passing age, nor to any of its governing powers, which are declining to their end; The Revelation by God's Spirit 1Cor.2.6-16Σοφίαν δὲ λαλοῦμεν ἐν τοῖς τελείοις, σοφίαν δὲ οὐ τοῦ αἰῶνος τούτου οὐδὲ τῶν ἀρχόντων τοῦ αἰῶνος τούτου τῶν καταργουμένων·
7 I speak God's hidden wisdom, his secret purpose framed from the very beginning to bring us to our full glory.  ἀλλὰ λαλοῦμεν θεοῦ σοφίαν ἐν μυστηρίῳ, τὴν ἀποκεκρυμμένην, ἣν προώρισεν ὁ θεὸς πρὸ τῶν αἰώνων εἰς δόξαν ἡμῶν·
8 The powers that rule the world have never known it; if they had, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory.  ἣν οὐδεὶς τῶν ἀρχόντων τοῦ αἰῶνος τούτου ἐγνωκεν, εἰ γὰρ ἐγνωσαν, οὐκ ἂν τὸν κύριον τῆς δόξης ἐσταύρωσαν.
9 But, in the words of Scripture, 'Things beyond our seeing, things beyond our hearing, things beyond our imagining, all prepared by God for those who love him', - What no eye has seen, nor ear heard 1Cor.2.9 | Is.64.4 | Ps.52.15ἀλλὰ καθὼς γέγραπται,

Ἅ ὀφθαλμὸς οὐκ εἶδεν καὶ οὖς οὐκ ἤκουσεν
καὶ ἐπὶ καρδίαν ἀνθρώπου οὐκ ἀνέβη,
ἂ ἡτοίμασεν ὁ θεὸς τοῖς ἀγαπῶσιν αὐτόν.

10 these it is that God has revealed to us through the Spirit.

For the Spirit explores everything, even the depths of God's own nature.

 ἡμῖν δὲ ἀπεκάλυψεν ὁ θεὸς διὰ τοῦ πνεύματος· τὸ γὰρ Πνεῦμα πάντα ἐραυνᾷ, καὶ τὰ βάθη τοῦ θεοῦ.
11 Among men, who knows what a man is but the man's own spirit within him? In the same way, only the Spirit of God knows what God is.  τίς γὰρ οἶδεν ἀνθρώπων τὰ τοῦ ἀνθρώπου εἰ μὴ τὸ Πνεῦμα τοῦ ἀνθρώπου τὸ ἐν αὐτῷ; οὑτως καὶ τὰ τοῦ θεοῦ οὐδεὶς ἐγνωκεν εἰ μὴ τὸ Πνεῦμα τοῦ θεοῦ.
12 This is the Spirit that we have received from God, and not the spirit of the world, so that we may know all that God of his own grace gives us;  ἡμεῖς δὲ οὐ τὸ Πνεῦμα τοῦ κόσμου ἐλάβομεν ἀλλὰ τὸ Πνεῦμα τὸ ἐκ τοῦ θεοῦ, ἵνα εἰδῶμεν τὰ ὑπὸ τοῦ θεοῦ χαρισθέντα ἡμῖν·
13 and, because we are interpreting spiritual truths to those who have the Spirit, we speak of these gifts of God in words found for us not by our human wisdom but by the Spirit.  ἂ καὶ λαλοῦμεν οὐκ ἐν διδακτοῖς ἄνθρωπίνης σοφίας λόγοις ἀλλ' ἐν διδακτοῖς πνεύματος, πνευματικοῖς πνευματικὰ συγκρίνοντες.
14 A man who is unspiritual refuses what belongs to the Spirit of God; it is folly to him; he cannot grasp it, because it needs to be judged in the light of the Spirit.  ψυχικὸς δὲ ἄνθρωπος οὐ δέχεται τὰ τοῦ πνεύματος τοῦ θεοῦ, μωρία γὰρ αὐτῷ ἐστιν, καὶ οὐ δύναται γνῶναι, ὅτι πνευματικῶς ἀνακρίνεται·
15 A man gifted with the Spirit can judge the worth of everything, but is not himself subject to judgement by his fellow-men.  ὁ δὲ πνευματικὸς ἀνακρίνει [τὰ] πάντα, αὐτὸς δὲ ὑπ' οὐδενὸς ἀνακρίνεται.
16 For (in the words of Scripture) 'who knows the mind of the Lord? Who can advise him?' We, however, possess the mind of Christ.
- For who has known the mind of the Lord 1Cor.2.16 | Is.40.13τίς γὰρ ἔγνω νοῦν κυρίου,
ὃς συμβιβάσει αὐτόν;
ἡμεῖς δὲ νοῦν Χριστοῦ ἐχομεν.
