3. Interpreting Spiritual Things
with Spiritual Words to Spiritual Men
11 For who among men knows the things of man, except the 1aspirit of man which is in him? In the same way, the things of God also no one has known except the Spirit of God.
12 But we have 1areceived not the spirit of the bworld but the cSpirit which is from God, that we may dknow the ethings which have been graciously given to us by God;
13 Which things also we speak, not in awords taught by human wisdom but in words btaught by the Spirit, 1interpreting spiritual things 2with spiritual words.
14 1But a 2asoulish man does bnot receive the 3cthings of the Spirit of God, for they are dfoolishness to him and he is 4not able to know them because they are 5ediscerned 6spiritually.
15 But the 1aspiritual man discerns all things, but he himself is discerned by no one.
16 For who has known the amind of the Lord and will binstruct Him? But we 1have the cmind of Christ.
