THE HOLY BIBLE Authorized King James

1 Corinthians (Author Paul)

1:18For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.

1:19For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent.

1:20Where is the wise? where is the scribe? where is the disputer of this world? hath not God made foolish the wisdom of this world?

1:21For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe.

1:22For the Jews require a sign, and the Greeks seek after wisdom:

1:23But we preach Christ crucified, unto the Jews a stumblingblock, and unto the Greeks foolishness;

1:24But unto them which are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God.

1:25Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the weakness of God is stronger than men.

Romans (Author Paul)

12:1I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.

12:2And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

Colossians (Author Paul)

1:20And, having made peace through the blood of his cross, by him to reconcile all things unto himself; by him, I say, whether they be things in earth, or things in heaven.

1:21And you, that were sometime alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now hath he reconciled

1:22In the body of his flesh through death, to present you holy and unblameable and unreproveable in his sight:
