King James Version

1 Corinthians 2:1-16

1And I, brethren, when I came to you, came not with excellency of speech or of wisdom, declaring unto you the testimony of God. 2For I determined not to know any thing among you, save Jesus Christ, and him crucified. 3And I was with you in weakness, and in fear, and in much trembling. 4And my speech and my preaching was not with enticing words of man’s wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power: 5That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God. 6Howbeit we speak wisdom among them that are perfect: yet not the wisdom of this world, nor of the princes of this world, that come to nought: 7But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory: 8Which none of the princes of this world knew: for had they known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory. 9But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him. 10But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God. 11For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God. 12Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God. 13Which things also we speak, not in the words which man’s wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual. 14But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned. 15But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no man. 16For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ.

Knijga O Kristu

1 Korinćanima 2:1-16

1Draga braćo i sestre, kad sam prvi put došao k vama, nisam se služio uzvišenim ni dubokoumnim riječima da vam navijestim Božju poruku. 2Jer odlučio sam među vama ne znati ništa drugo osim Isusa Krista, i to raspetoga. 3Došao sam k vama slab—bojažljivo i drhteći. 4Moj govor i propovijedanje nisu se zasnivali na mudrim i uvjerljivim riječima, nego na djelovanju Svetoga Duha među vama, 5zato da svoju vjeru ne temeljite na ljudskoj mudrosti, nego na Božjoj sili.

6Doduše, kad smo sa zrelim kršćanima, navješćujemo mudrost—ali ne mudrost ovoga svijeta ni takvu mudrost koja bi se svidjela vladarima ovoga svijeta koji su ionako osuđeni na propast. 7Navješćujemo tajnu, skrivenu Božju mudrost koju je Bog namijenio našoj dobrobiti još prije postanka svijeta. 8Vladari ovoga svijeta nisu ju razumjeli—jer da jesu, ne bi raspeli našega Gospodina slave. 9Upravo je to značenje ulomka iz Svetoga pisma:

“Ono što oko još nije vidjelo,

što uho još nije čulo

niti um može zamisliti,

to je Bog pripravio

onima koji ga ljube.”2:9 Izaija 64:3.

10Ali mi to znamo jer nam je Bog otkrio svojim Duhom koji proniče sve, pa tako i Božje dubine. 11Tko može znati misli nekog čovjeka osim njegova vlastitoga čovječjeg duha u njemu? Tako ni Božje misli ne može znati nitko osim Božjega Duha. 12I tog nam je Božjeg Duha (a ne duha svijeta) Bog dao da bismo mogli znati čime nas je obdario. 13Govoreći vam o tomu, ne služimo se riječima ljudske mudrosti, nego riječima koje nam daje Sveti Duh—služeći se riječima Duha da bismo objasnili duhovne istine. 14Ali čovjek tjelesne naravi ne može razumjeti spoznaje koje daje Božji Duh. Njemu se one čine ludošću jer ih valja prosuđivati Duhom. 15Čovjek koji ima Duha može sve prosuđivati, ali drugi nisu kadri prosuđivati njega.

16“Jer tko poznaje Gospodnje misli?

Tko će njemu dati savjet?”2:16 Izaija 40:13.

Ali mi imamo Kristov um.
