1 Corinthians 1:25
Context
The Foolish Chosen to Shame the Wise

25Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the weakness of God is stronger than men. 26For you see your calling, brothers, how that not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called: 27But God has chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God has chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty; 28And base things of the world, and things which are despised, has God chosen, yes, and things which are not, to bring to nothing things that are: 29That no flesh should glory in his presence. 30But of him are you in Christ Jesus, who of God is made to us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption: 31That, according as it is written, He that glories, let him glory in the Lord.
