Bible verses about "wisdom" | Riverside

Luke 12:12

12 For the Holy Spirit will teach you in that hour what you must say."

1 Corinthians 2:9-14

9 But as it is written, "What eye has not seen and what ear has not heard and what has not entered human mind, God has prepared for those who love him." 10 To us God has revealed this by his Spirit. For the Spirit searches all things, even the depths of God. 11 For who of men knows what pertains to a man except the spirit of the man which is in him. Just so no one knows what pertains to God except the Spirit of God. 12 But we did not receive the spirit of the world, but the Spirit that is from God, so that we know the gracious gifts of God. 13 And these we speak of, not in words taught by man's wisdom, but in words taught by the Spirit, expressing spiritual things in spiritual words. 14 But the animal man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him, nor can he know them because they are spiritually understood.

1 John 2:27

27 But as for you, the anointing that you have received from him remains in you and you have no need for any one to teach you, but as his anointing teaches you about all things and is true and is no lie and as it has taught you, you must remain in him.

John 8:12

12 Again Jesus spoke to them, saying, "I am the light of the world. He who follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life."

1 Corinthians 2:6-16

6 We do speak wisdom among the mature, but a wisdom not of this world nor of the defeated rulers of this world. 7 But we speak a wisdom of God in a mystery, the hidden wisdom which God predestined before the world began for our glory. 8 None of the rulers of this world knew it, for if they had known it they would not have crucified the Lord of glory. 9 But as it is written, "What eye has not seen and what ear has not heard and what has not entered human mind, God has prepared for those who love him." 10 To us God has revealed this by his Spirit. For the Spirit searches all things, even the depths of God. 11 For who of men knows what pertains to a man except the spirit of the man which is in him. Just so no one knows what pertains to God except the Spirit of God. 12 But we did not receive the spirit of the world, but the Spirit that is from God, so that we know the gracious gifts of God. 13 And these we speak of, not in words taught by man's wisdom, but in words taught by the Spirit, expressing spiritual things in spiritual words. 14 But the animal man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him, nor can he know them because they are spiritually understood. 15 But the spiritual man understands all things though he himself is understood by no one. 16 For "Who has known the mind of the Lord? Who will teach him?" But we have the mind of Christ.

Galatians 4:9

Philippians 3:15

15 Let us all who are full grown think in this way. If in anything you think differently, even that God will reveal to you,

1 Corinthians 1:17-26

17 For Christ did not send me to baptize, but to proclaim the good news — not in wisdom of words, that the cross of Christ might not be emptied of meaning. 18 For the message 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 I will bring to nought the prudence of the prudent." 20 Where is the wise? Where is the scribe? Where is the debater of this world? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of the world? 21 For when in the wisdom of God the world by its wisdom did not come to know God, God was pleased to save through the foolishness of our proclamation those who believe. 22 Jews ask for signs and Greeks seek for wisdom, 23 but we proclaim Christ crucified, to Jews a stumbling block, to Gentiles folly, 24 but to those who are called, whether Jews or Greeks, Christ, the power of God and the wisdom of God. 25 For God's foolishness is wiser than men and God's weakness is stronger than men. 26 Consider your own call, brethren, that not many wise, humanly speaking, not many powerful, not many high-born have been called.

2 Timothy 1:7

7 For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and love and self-control.

18 Let no one deceive himself. If any one of you thinks himself wise in this world, let him become a fool in order to become wise. 19 For the wisdom of this world is foolishness in God's sight. For it is written, "He catches the wise in their own craftiness," 20 and again, "The Lord knows the reasonings of the wise to be futile."

John 8:32

32 and you will know the truth and the truth will make you free."

2 Timothy 2:7

7 Think over what I am saying, for the Lord will give you insight in all things.

Ephesians 3:14-19

14 For this reason I bow my knees to the Father 15 from whom every family in heaven and on earth is named, 16 that he may grant to you according to his glorious wealth to be strengthened with might through his Spirit in the inner man, 17 that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith, and that you, rooted and founded in love, 18 may be able with all the holy to comprehend what is the breadth and length and height and depth — 19 yes, to know the love of Christ, which yet surpasses knowledge, and may be filled with all the fullness of God.

Ephesians 5:15-17

15 Be strictly careful, then, how you live, not as unwise but as wise. 16 Buy up the opportunity, because these are evil days. 17 Therefore do not be thoughtless, but understand what is the Lord's will.

James 1:5

5 If any one of you is lacking in wisdom, let him ask it from God, who gives to all freely without reproaching, and it will be given to him.
