Unchecked Copy Box1Co 1:1 - Paul, a called apostle of Jesus Christ, by God's will, and Sosthenes the brother,
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 1:2 - to the assembly of God which is in Corinth, to those sanctified in Christ Jesus, called saints, with all that in every place call on the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, both theirs and ours:
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 1:3 - Grace to you and peace from God our Father, and the Lord Jesus Christ.
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 1:4 - I thank my God always about you, in respect of the grace of God given to you in Christ Jesus;
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 1:5 - that in everything ye have been enriched in him, in all word of doctrine, and all knowledge,
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 1:6 - (according as the testimony of the Christ has been confirmed in you,)
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 1:7 - so that ye come short in no gift, awaiting the revelation of our Lord Jesus Christ;
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 1:8 - who shall also confirm you to the end, unimpeachable in the day of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 1:9 - God is faithful, by whom ye have been called into the fellowship of his Son Jesus Christ our Lord.
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 1:10 - Now I exhort you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye all say the same thing, and that there be not among you divisions; but that ye be perfectly united in the same mind and in the same opinion.
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 1:11 - For it has been shewn to me concerning you, my brethren, by those of the house of Chloe, that there are strifes among you.
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 1:12 - But I speak of this, that each of you says, *I* am of Paul, and *I* of Apollos, and *I* of Cephas, and *I* of Christ.
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 1:13 - Is the Christ divided? has Paul been crucified for you? or have ye been baptised unto the name of Paul?
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 1:14 - I thank God that I have baptised none of you, unless Crispus and Gaius,
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 1:15 - that no one may say that I have baptised unto my own name.
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 1:16 - Yes, I baptised also the house of Stephanas; for the rest I know not if I have baptised any other.
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 1:17 - For Christ has not sent me to baptise, but to preach glad tidings; not in wisdom of word, that the cross of the Christ may not be made vain.

The Wisdom of God

(cf. Isa 29:14 )
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 1:18 - For the word of the cross is to them that perish foolishness, but to us that are saved it is God's power.
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 1:19 - For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and set aside the understanding of the understanding ones.
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 1:20 - Where is the wise? where scribe? where disputer of this world? has not God made foolish the wisdom of the world?
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 1:21 - For since, in the wisdom of God, the world by wisdom has not known God, God has been pleased by the foolishness of the preaching to save those that believe.
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 1:22 - Since Jews indeed ask for signs, and Greeks seek wisdom;
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 1:23 - but *we* preach Christ crucified, to Jews an offence, and to nations foolishness;
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 1:24 - but to those that are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ God's power and God's wisdom.
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 1:25 - Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men, and the weakness of God is stronger than men.
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 1:26 - For consider your calling, brethren, that there are not many wise according to flesh, not many powerful, not many high-born.
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 1:27 - But God has chosen the foolish things of the world, that he may put to shame the wise; and God has chosen the weak things of the world, that he may put to shame the strong things;
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 1:28 - and the ignoble things of the world, and the despised, has God chosen, and things that are not, that he may annul the things that are;
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 1:29 - so that no flesh should boast before God.
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 1:30 - But of him are *ye* in Christ Jesus, who has been made to us wisdom from God, and righteousness, and holiness, and redemption;
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 1:31 - that according as it is written, He that boasts, let him boast in the Lord.

In 1867, John Nelson Darby translated the New Testament from Greek into English. Further revisions were done in 1872 and 1884. Darby’s work was first published as The Holy Scriptures: A New Translation from the Original Languages by J. N. Darby. After Darby’s death in 1882, some of his students worked together to produce the complete Darby Bible based on the Masoretic Hebrew text, Darby’s German (Elberfelder), and the French (Pau) translations. In 1890, the first complete Darby Bible was published in English. This translation of the Bible is in the public domain.
