Lord

thou hast

Isaiah 29:14

1 Corinthians 1:9-26
9
God is faithful, through whom you were called into fellowship with His Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.
10
Now I exhort you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that you all agree and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be made complete in the same mind and in the same judgment.
11
For I have been informed concerning you, my brethren, by Chloe's [people], that there are quarrels among you.
12
Now I mean this, that each one of you is saying, "I am of Paul," and "I of Apollos," and "I of Cephas," and "I of Christ."
13
Has Christ been divided? Paul was not crucified for you, was he? Or were you baptized in the name of Paul?
14
I thank God that I baptized none of you except Crispus and Gaius,
15
so that no one would say you were baptized in my name.
16
Now I did baptize also the household of Stephanas; beyond that, I do not know whether I baptized any other.
17
For Christ did not send me to baptize, but to preach the gospel, not in cleverness of speech, so that the cross of Christ would not be made void.
18
For the word of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.
19
For it is written, "I WILL DESTROY THE WISDOM OF THE WISE, AND THE CLEVERNESS OF THE CLEVER I WILL SET ASIDE."
20
Where is the wise man? Where is the scribe? Where is the debater of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of the world?
21
For since in the wisdom of God the world through its wisdom did not [come to] know God, God was well-pleased through the foolishness of the message preached to save those who believe.
22
For indeed Jews ask for signs and Greeks search for wisdom;
23
but we preach Christ crucified, to Jews a stumbling block and to Gentiles foolishness,
24
but to those who are the called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God.
25
Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men, and the weakness of God is stronger than men.
26
For consider your calling, brethren, that there were not many wise according to the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble;
1 Corinthians 2:6-8
6
Yet we do speak wisdom among those who are mature; a wisdom, however, not of this age nor of the rulers of this age, who are passing away;
7
but we speak God's wisdom in a mystery, the hidden [wisdom] which God predestined before the ages to our glory;
8
[the wisdom] which none of the rulers of this age has understood; for if they had understood it they would not have crucified the Lord of glory;
1 Corinthians 3:18-20
18
Let no man deceive himself. If any man among you thinks that he is wise in this age, he must become foolish, so that he may become wise.
19
For the wisdom of this world is foolishness before God. For it is written, "[He is] THE ONE WHO CATCHES THE WISE IN THEIR CRAFTINESS";
20
and again, "THE LORD KNOWS THE REASONINGS of the wise, THAT THEY ARE USELESS."
2 Corinthians 4:3
And even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing,
Colossians 2:2
that their hearts may be encouraged, having been knit together in love, and [attaining] to all the wealth that comes from the full assurance of understanding, [resulting] in a true knowledge of God's mystery, [that is], Christ [Himself],
Colossians 2:3
in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.

Isaiah 29:19
The afflicted also will increase their gladness in the LORD, And the needy of mankind will rejoice in the Holy One of Israel.
Isaiah 35:8
A highway will be there, a roadway, And it will be called the Highway of Holiness. The unclean will not travel on it, But it [will] be for him who walks [that] way, And fools will not wander [on it].
Matthew 13:11-16
11
Jesus answered them, "To you it has been granted to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it has not been granted.
12
"For whoever has, to him [more] shall be given, and he will have an abundance; but whoever does not have, even what he has shall be taken away from him.
13
"Therefore I speak to them in parables; because while seeing they do not see, and while hearing they do not hear, nor do they understand.
14
"In their case the prophecy of Isaiah is being fulfilled, which says, 'YOU WILL KEEP ON HEARING, BUT WILL NOT UNDERSTAND; YOU WILL KEEP ON SEEING, BUT WILL NOT PERCEIVE;
15
FOR THE HEART OF THIS PEOPLE HAS BECOME DULL, WITH THEIR EARS THEY SCARCELY HEAR, AND THEY HAVE CLOSED THEIR EYES, OTHERWISE THEY WOULD SEE WITH THEIR EYES, HEAR WITH THEIR EARS, AND UNDERSTAND WITH THEIR HEART AND RETURN, AND I WOULD HEAL THEM.'
16
"But blessed are your eyes, because they see; and your ears, because they hear.
Matthew 16:17
And Jesus said to him, "Blessed are you, Simon Barjona, because flesh and blood did not reveal [this] to you, but My Father who is in heaven.
Matthew 21:16
and said to Him, "Do You hear what these [children] are saying?" And Jesus said to them, "Yes; have you never read, 'OUT OF THE MOUTH OF INFANTS AND NURSING BABIES YOU HAVE PREPARED PRAISE FOR YOURSELF'?"
Mark 10:15
"Truly I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God like a child will not enter it [at] [all]."
1 Corinthians 1:27-29
27
but God has chosen the foolish things of the world to shame the wise, and God has chosen the weak things of the world to shame the things which are strong,
28
and the base things of the world and the despised God has chosen, the things that are not, so that He may nullify the things that are,
29
so that no man may boast before God.
1 Corinthians 2:6
Yet we do speak wisdom among those who are mature; a wisdom, however, not of this age nor of the rulers of this age, who are passing away;
1 Corinthians 2:7
but we speak God's wisdom in a mystery, the hidden [wisdom] which God predestined before the ages to our glory;
1 Peter 2:1
Therefore, putting aside all malice and all deceit and hypocrisy and envy and all slander,
1 Peter 2:2
like newborn babies, long for the pure milk of the word, so that by it you may grow in respect to salvation,
even
Ephesians 1:5
He predestined us to adoption as sons through Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the kind intention of His will,
Ephesians 1:11
also we have obtained an inheritance, having been predestined according to His purpose who works all things after the counsel of His will,
