  7 G235 But G2980 we speak [G5719]   G4678 the wisdom G2316 of God G1722 in G3466 a mystery G613 , even the hidden [G5772]   G3739 wisdom, which G2316 God G4309 ordained [G5656]   G4253 before G165 the world G1519 unto G2257 our G1391 glory:
  8 G3739 Which G3762 none G758 of the princes G5127 of this G165 world G1097 knew [G5758]   G1487 : for G1063   G1097 had they known [G5627]   G302 it, they G4717 would G3756 not G4717 have crucified [G5656]   G2962 the Lord G1391 of glory.

  10 G1161 But G2316 God G601 hath revealed [G5656]   G2254 them unto us G1223 by G846 his G4151 Spirit G1063 : for G4151 the Spirit G2045 searcheth [G5719]   G3956 all things G2532 , yea G899 , the deep things G2316 of God.

  17 G3739 Which G2076 are [G5748]   G4639 a shadow G3195 of things to come [G5723]   G1161 ; but G4983 the body G5547 is of Christ.

  19 G2532 And G3756 not G2902 holding [G5723]   G2776 the Head G1537 , from G3739 which G3956 all G4983 the body G1223 by G860 joints G2532 and G4886 bands G2023 having nourishment ministered [G5746]   G2532 , and G4822 knit together [G5746]   G837 , increaseth [G5719]   G838 with the increase G2316 of God.

  1 G2504 And I G80 , brethren G2064 , when I came [G5631]   G4314 to G5209 you G2064 , came [G5627]   G3756 not G2596 with G5247 excellency G3056 of speech G2228 or G4678 of wisdom G2605 , declaring [G5723]   G5213 unto you G3142 the testimony G2316 of God.

  4 G2532 And G3450 my G3056 speech G2532 and G3450 my G2782 preaching G3756 was not G1722 with G3981 enticing G3056 words G442 of man's G4678 wisdom G235 , but G1722 in G585 demonstration G4151 of the Spirit G2532 and G1411 of power:
  5 G2443 That G5216 your G4102 faith G5600 should G3361 not G5600 stand [G5753]   G1722 in G4678 the wisdom G444 of men G235 , but G1722 in G1411 the power G2316 of God.

Job 28:1-28

  1 H3426 Surely H4161 there is a vein H3701 for the silver H4725 , and a place H2091 for gold H2212 where they fine [H8799]   it .
  2 H1270 Iron H3947 is taken [H8714]   H6083 out of the earth H5154 , and brass H6694 is molten [H8799]   H68 out of the stone.
  3 H7760 He setteth [H8804]   H7093 an end H2822 to darkness H2713 , and searcheth out [H8802]   H8503 all perfection H68 : the stones H652 of darkness H6757 , and the shadow of death.
  4 H5158 The flood H6555 breaketh out [H8804]   H1481 from the inhabitant [H8802]   H7911 ; even the waters forgotten [H8737]   H7272 of the foot H1809 : they are dried up [H8804]   H5128 , they are gone away [H8804]   H582 from men.
  5 H776 As for the earth H3318 , out of it cometh [H8799]   H3899 bread H2015 : and under it is turned up [H8738]   H784 as it were fire.
  6 H68 The stones H4725 of it are the place H5601 of sapphires H6083 : and it hath dust H2091 of gold.
  7 H5410 There is a path H5861 which no fowl H3045 knoweth [H8804]   H344 , and which the vulture's H5869 eye H7805 hath not seen [H8804]  :
  8 H7830 The lion's H1121 whelps H1869 have not trodden [H8689]   H7826 it, nor the fierce lion H5710 passed [H8804]   by it.
  9 H7971 He putteth forth [H8804]   H3027 his hand H2496 upon the rock H2015 ; he overturneth [H8804]   H2022 the mountains H8328 by the roots.
  10 H1234 He cutteth out [H8765]   H2975 rivers H6697 among the rocks H5869 ; and his eye H7200 seeth [H8804]   H3366 every precious thing.
  11 H2280 He bindeth [H8765]   H5104 the floods H1065 from overflowing H8587 ; and the thing that is hid H3318 bringeth he forth [H8686]   H216 to light.
  12 H370 But where H2451 shall wisdom H4672 be found [H8735]   H4725 ? and where is the place H998 of understanding?
  13 H582 Man H3045 knoweth [H8804]   H6187 not the price H4672 thereof; neither is it found [H8735]   H776 in the land H2416 of the living.
  14 H8415 The depth H559 saith [H8804]   H3220 , It is not in me: and the sea H559 saith [H8804]  , It is not with me.
  15 H5414 It cannot be gotten [H8714]   H5458 for gold H3701 , neither shall silver H8254 be weighed [H8735]   H4242 for the price thereof.
  16 H5541 It cannot be valued [H8792]   H3800 with the gold H211 of Ophir H3368 , with the precious H7718 onyx H5601 , or the sapphire.
  17 H2091 The gold H2137 and the crystal H6186 cannot equal [H8799]   H8545 it: and the exchange H3627 of it shall not be for jewels H6337 of fine gold.
  18 H2142 No mention [H8735]   H7215 shall be made of coral H1378 , or of pearls H4901 : for the price H2451 of wisdom H6443 is above rubies.
  19 H6357 The topaz H3568 of Ethiopia H6186 shall not equal [H8799]   H5541 it, neither shall it be valued [H8792]   H2889 with pure H3800 gold.
  20 H370 Whence H935 then cometh [H8799]   H2451 wisdom H4725 ? and where is the place H998 of understanding?
  21 H5956 Seeing it is hid [H8738]   H5869 from the eyes H2416 of all living H5641 , and kept close [H8738]   H5775 from the fowls H8064 of the air.
  22 H11 Destruction H4194 and death H559 say [H8804]   H8085 , We have heard [H8804]   H8088 the fame H241 thereof with our ears.
  23 H430 God H995 understandeth [H8689]   H1870 the way H3045 thereof, and he knoweth [H8804]   H4725 the place thereof.
  24 H5027 For he looketh [H8686]   H7098 to the ends H776 of the earth H7200 , and seeth [H8799]   H8064 under the whole heaven;
  25 H6213 To make [H8800]   H4948 the weight H7307 for the winds H8505 ; and he weigheth [H8765]   H4325 the waters H4060 by measure.
  26 H6213 When he made [H8800]   H2706 a decree H4306 for the rain H1870 , and a way H2385 for the lightning H6963 of the thunder:
  27 H7200 Then did he see [H8804]   H5608 it, and declare [H8762]   H3559 it; he prepared [H8689]   H2713 it, yea, and searched it out [H8804]  .
  28 H120 And unto man H559 he said [H8799]   H3374 , Behold, the fear H136 of the Lord H2451 , that is wisdom H5493 ; and to depart [H8800]   H7451 from evil H998 is understanding.
