1 Corinthians 2:6

Context
Wisdom from God

2:6 Now we do speak wisdom among the mature, 1  but not a wisdom of this age or of the rulers of this age, who are perishing.

1 Corinthians 2:15

Context
2:15 The one who is spiritual discerns 2  all things, yet he himself is understood 3  by no one.

1 tn In extrabiblical literature this word was applied to an initiate of a mystery religion (BDAG 995 s.v. τέλειος 3, gives numerous examples and states this was a technical term of the mystery religions). It could here refer to those who believed Paul’s message, the mystery of God (v. 1), and so be translated as “those who believe God’s message.”

2 tn Or “evaluates.”

3 tn Or “is evaluated” (i.e., “is subject to evaluation”); Grk “he himself is discerned,” that is, the person without the Spirit does not understand the person with the Spirit, particularly in relation to the life of faith.
