1 And I, my brethren, when I came to you, not with grandeur of speech, nor with wisdom, did I evangelize to you the mystery of Aloha.
2 And I considered myself among you as not knowing any thing unless Jeshu Meshiha, and him also as crucified.
3 And I in much fear and trembling was with you.
4 And my speech and my preaching were not with the persuasion of the words of wisdom, but with the demonstration of the Spirit and of power;
5 that your faith might not be through the wisdom of men, but through the power of Aloha.
6 But we speak wisdom among the perfect: not the wisdom of this world, nor the authorities of this world, which are abolished;
7 but we speak the wisdom of Aloha in the mystery which was hidden, and which Aloha predetermined from before the worlds unto our glorification;
8 which not one of the authorities of this world hath known; for if they had known it, the Lord of glory they would not have crucified.
9 But as it is written, The eye hath not seen, Nor the ear heard, Nor the heart of man hath risen (to), That which Aloha hath prepared for those who love him.
10 BUT unto us hath Aloha revealed, by his Spirit. For the Spirit all things searcheth, also the depths of Aloha.
11 For what man knoweth what is in man, save the spirit of a man which is in him? so also that which is in Aloha man knoweth not, but only the Spirit of Aloha.
12 But we not the spirit of this world have received, but the Spirit who is from Aloha, that we might know that the gifts from Aloha are given unto us;
13 which also we speak, not with the learning of words of wisdom of men, but with the learning of the Spirit; and with spirituals the spirituals we compare.
14 For the man who is animal receiveth not spirituals, for they are foolishness to him, and he cannot know them, because they by the Spirit are judged of;
15 but the spiritual judgeth of every thing, and he of man is not judged.
16 For who hath known the mind of the Lord to teach him? But we have the mind of the Meshiha.
