Unchecked Copy Box1Co 2:1 - And *I*, when I came to you, brethren, came not in excellency of word, or wisdom, announcing to you the testimony of God.
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 2:2 - For I did not judge it well to know anything among you save Jesus Christ, and *him* crucified.
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 2:3 - And *I* was with you in weakness and in fear and in much trembling;
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 2:4 - and my word and my preaching, not in persuasive words of wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power;
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 2:5 - that your faith might not stand in men's wisdom, but in God's power.
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 2:6 - But we speak wisdom among the perfect; but wisdom not of this world, nor of the rulers of this world, who come to nought.
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 2:7 - But we speak God's wisdom in a mystery, that hidden wisdom which God had predetermined before the ages for our glory:
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 2:8 - which none of the princes of this age knew, (for had they known, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory;)
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 2:9 - but according as it is written, Things which eye has not seen, and ear not heard, and which have not come into man's heart, which God has prepared for them that love him,
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 2:10 - but God has revealed to us by his Spirit; for the Spirit searches all things, even the depths of God.
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 2:11 - For who of men hath known the things of a man except the spirit of the man which is in him? thus also the things of God knows no one except the Spirit of God.
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 2:12 - But *we* have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit which is of God, that we may know the things which have been freely given to us of God:
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 2:13 - which also we speak, not in words taught by human wisdom, but in those taught by the Spirit, communicating spiritual things by spiritual means.
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 2:14 - But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are folly to him; and he cannot know them because they are spiritually discerned;
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 2:15 - but the spiritual discerns all things, and *he* is discerned of no one.
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 2:16 - For who has known the mind of the Lord, who shall instruct him? But *we* have the mind of Christ.
DBY

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.
