I Corinthii - caput 21 Corinthians - chapter 2


1 Et ego, cum venissem ad vos, fratres, veni non in sublimitate sermonis, aut sapientiæ, annuntians vobis testimonium Christi.

And I, brethren, when I came to you, came not in loftiness of speech or of wisdom, declaring unto you the testimony of Christ.

2 Non enim judicavi me scire aliquid inter vos, nisi Jesum Christum, et hunc crucifixum.

For I judged not myself to know anything among you, but Jesus Christ, and him crucified.

3 Et ego in infirmitate, et timore, et tremore multo fui apud vos:

And I was with you in weakness, and in fear, and in much trembling.

4 et sermo meus, et prædicatio mea non in persuasibilibus humanæ sapientiæ verbis, sed in ostensione spiritus et virtutis:

And my speech and my preaching was not in the persuasive words of human wisdom, but in shewing of the Spirit and power;

5 ut fides vestra non sit in sapientia hominum, sed in virtute Dei.

That your faith might not stand on the wisdom of men, but on the power of God.

6 Sapientiam autem loquimur inter perfectos: sapientiam vero non hujus sæculi, neque principum hujus sæculi, qui destruuntur:

Howbeit we speak wisdom among the perfect: yet not the wisdom of this world, neither of the princes of this world that come to nought;

7 sed loquimur Dei sapientiam in mysterio, quæ abscondita est, quam prædestinavit Deus ante sæcula in gloriam nostram,

But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, a wisdom which is hidden, which God ordained before the world, unto our glory:

8 quam nemo principum hujus sæculi cognovit: si enim cognovissent, numquam Dominum gloriæ crucifixissent.

Which none of the princes of this world knew; for if they had known it, they would never have crucified the Lord of glory.

9 Sed sicut scriptum est: Quod oculus non vidit, nec auris audivit, nec in cor hominis ascendit, quæ præparavit Deus iis qui diligunt illum:

But, as it is written: That eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither hath it entered into the heart of man, what things God hath prepared for them that love him.

10 nobis autem revelavit Deus per Spiritum suum: Spiritus enim omnia scrutatur, etiam profunda Dei.

But to us God hath revealed them, by this Spirit. For the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God.

11 Quis enim hominum scit quæ sunt hominis, nisi spiritus hominis, qui in ipso est? ita et quæ Dei sunt, nemo cognovit, nisi Spiritus Dei.

For what man knoweth the things of a man, but the spirit of a man that is in him? So the things also that are of God no man knoweth, but the Spirit of God.

12 Nos autem non spiritum hujus mundi accepimus, sed Spiritum qui ex Deo est, ut sciamus quæ a Deo donata sunt nobis:

Now we have received not the spirit of this world, but the Spirit that is of God; that we may know the things that are given us from God.

13 quæ et loquimur non in doctis humanæ sapientiæ verbis, sed in doctrina Spiritus, spiritualibus spiritualia comparantes.

Which things also we speak, not in the learned words of human wisdom; but in the doctrine of the Spirit, comparing spiritual things with spiritual.

14 Animalis autem homo non percipit ea quæ sunt Spiritus Dei: stultitia enim est illi, et non potest intelligere: quia spiritualiter examinatur.

But the sensual man perceiveth not these things that are of the Spirit of God; for it is foolishness to him, and he cannot understand, because it is spiritually examined.

15 Spiritualis autem judicat omnia: et ipse a nemine judicatur.

But the spiritual man judgeth all things; and he himself is judged of no man.

16 Quis enim cognovit sensum Domini, qui instruat eum? nos autem sensum Christi habemus.

For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that we may instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ.

But, as it is written: That eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither hath it entered into the heart of man, what things God hath prepared for them that love him.

For what man knoweth the things of a man, but the spirit of a man that is in him? So the things also that are of God no man knoweth, but the Spirit of God.

12 Nos autem non spiritum hujus mundi accepimus, sed Spiritum qui ex Deo est, ut sciamus quæ a Deo donata sunt nobis:

Now we have received not the spirit of this world, but the Spirit that is of God; that we may know the things that are given us from God.

13 quæ et loquimur non in doctis humanæ sapientiæ verbis, sed in doctrina Spiritus, spiritualibus spiritualia comparantes.
