The King James Version Bible

1 Corinthians 1:17-19

  1. For Christ sent me not to baptize, but to preach the gospel: not with wisdom of words, lest the cross of Christ should be made of none effect.

  2. For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.

  3. For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent.
