1corinthians

1 Cor. 1:1 - NIV, NAB - in Origen Against Celsus Book V

" It is not to be wondered at, indeed, if such thoughts have been entertained by those amongst us who are called in Scripture the "foolish things" of the world, and "base things," and "things which are despised," and "things which are not," because "by the foolishness of preaching it pleased God to save them that believe on Him, after that, in the wisdom of God, the world by wisdom knew not God,"[65]

1 Cor. 1:1 - NIV, NAB - in Origen Commentary on Matthew Book XIV

But perhaps also not even few but two or three make a symphony as Peter and James and John, to whom as making a symphony the Word of God showed His own glory. But two made a symphony, Paul and Sosthenes, when writing the first Epistle to the Corinthians;[11]

1 Cor. 1:3 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian Against Marcion Book V

which the apostle prescribes for those to whom he writes, but "grace and peace."[197]

1 Cor. 1:3 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian Against Marcion Book V

Now, when he announces these blessings as "from God the Father and the Lord Jesus,"[202]

1 Cor. 1:5 - NIV, NAB - in Origen Commentary on John Book VI

The result of my counting, it is true, has been that I do not possess what is required to finish it; yet I have put my trust in God, who enriches us[5]

1 Cor. 1:7 - NIV, NAB - in Polycrates of Ephesus

It is surely noteworthy that nobody doubted that it was kept by a Christian and Apostolic ordinance. So St. Paul argues from its Christian observance, in his rebuke of the Corinthians.[4]

1 Cor. 1:9 - NIV, NAB - in Clement of Alexandria Stromata Book II

And when it is said, "God is faithful," it is intimated that He is worthy to be believed when declaring aught. Now His Word declares; and "God" Himself is "faithful."[63]

1 Cor. 1:9 - NIV, NAB - in Clement of Alexandria Stromata Book V

as "God," who by instruction is communicated to the faithful, "is faithful; "[31]

1 Cor. 1:10 - NIV, NAB - in Epistle of Ignatius to the Ephesians

It is therefore befitting that you should in every way glorify Jesus Christ, who hath glorified you, that by a unanimous obedience "ye may be perfectly joined together in the same mind, and in the same judgment, and may all speak the same thing concerning the same thing,"[21]

1 Cor. 1:10 - NIV, NAB - in Epistle of Ignatius to the Ephesians

It is therefore befitting that you should in every way glorify Jesus Christ, who hath glorified you, that by a unanimous obedience "ye may be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment, and may all speak the same thing concerning the same thing,"[26]

1 Cor. 1:10 - NIV, NAB - in Epistle of Ignatius to the Trallians

I therefore, yet not I, out the love of Jesus Christ, "entreat you that ye all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you; but that ye be perfectly joined together in the same mind, and in the same judgment."[32]

1 Cor. 1:10 - NIV, NAB - in Epistle of Ignatius to the Philippians

"that ye all speak the same thing, being of one mind, thinking the same thing, and walking by the same rule of faith,"[4]

1 Cor. 1:10 - NIV, NAB - in Clement of Alexandria The Instructor Book II

But if all things have been conferred on you, and all things allowed you, and "if all things are lawful, yet all things are not expedient,"[255]

1 Cor. 1:10 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian The Prescription Against Heretics

men to turn away from such, teaching them that they should "all speak and think the selfsame thing,"[47]

1 Cor. 1:10 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian The Prescription Against Heretics

-as if they spoke of one God in the Church, (and) another at home, and described one substance of Christ, publicly, (and) another secretly, and announced one hope of the resurrection before all men, (and) another before the few; although they themselves, in their epistles, besought men that they would all speak one and the same thing, and that there should be no divisions and dissensions in the church,[288]

1 Cor. 1:10 - NIV, NAB - in Origen de Principiis Book I

And in keeping with this is the declaration of the same apostle, when he exhorts us, who even in the present life are placed in the Church, in which is the form of that kingdom which is to come, to this same similitude of unity: "That ye all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you; but that ye be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment."[111]

1 Cor. 1:10 - NIV, NAB - in Cyprian Treatise I On the Unity of the Church

And does any one believe that in one place there can be either many shepherds or many flocks? The Apostle Paul, moreover, urging upon us this same unity, beseeches and exhorts, saving, "I beseech you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye all speak the same thing, and that there be no schisms among you; but that ye be joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment."[27]

1 Cor. 1:10 - NIV, NAB - in Cyprian Treatise XII Three Books of Testimonies Against the Jews

Also in the first Epistle of Paul to the Corinthians: "But I beseech you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye all say the same thing, and that there be no schisms among you; but that ye be all joined together in the same mind and in the same opinion."[748]

1 Cor. 1:10 - NIV, NAB - in A Treatise on Re-Baptism by an Anonymous Writer

But since it is not in our power, according to the apostle's precept, "to speak the same thing, that there be not schisms among us; "[3]

1 Cor. 1:10 - NIV, NAB - in Constitutions of the Holy Apostles Book II

Be ye of one mind, O ye bishops, one with another, and be at peace with one another; sympathize with one another, love the brethren, and feed the people with care; with one consent teach those that are under you to be of the same sentiments and to be of the same opinions about the same matters, "that there may be no schisms among you; that ye may be one body and one spirit, perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment,"[209]

1 Cor. 1:11 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian On Baptism

to Paul, another to Apollos.[146]

1 Cor. 1:12 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian Against Marcion Book V

give any sign of His Christ, as destined to be the foundation of such as believe in Him, upon which every man should build at will the superstructure of either sound or worthless doctrine; forasmuch as it is the Creator's function, when a man's work shall be tried by fire, (or) when a reward shall be recompensed to him by fire; because it is by fire that the test is applied to the building which you erect upon the foundation which is laid by Him, that is, the foundation of His Christ.[268]

1 Cor. 1:14 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian On Baptism

, why did he baptize Gaius, and Crispus, and the house of Stephanas?[145]

1 Cor. 1:14 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian On Modesty

And what kind of invidiousness is the pungency of humility? "To God I give thanks that I have baptized none of you, except Crispus and Gaius, lest any say that I have baptized in mine own name."[138]

1 Cor. 1:17 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian On Baptism

apostle himself, in that he said, "For Christ sent me not to baptize; "[144]

1 Cor. 1:17 - NIV, NAB - in Cyprian Treatise XII Three Books of Testimonies Against the Jews

Because the Jews desire signs, and the Greeks seek for wisdom: but we preach Christ crucified, to the Jews indeed a stumbling-block, and to the Gentiles foolishness; but to them that are called, Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God."[715]

1 Cor. 1:18 - NIV, NAB - in Epistle of Ignatius to the Ephesians

for the sake of the cross, which is a stumbling-block[123]

1 Cor. 1:18 - NIV, NAB - in Irenaeus Against Heresies Book I

Moreover, they affirm that the Apostle Paul himself made mention of this cross in the following words: "The doctrine of the cross is to them that perish foolishness, but to us who are saved it is the power of God."[53]

1 Cor. 1:18 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian Against Marcion Book V

from one who has never experienced rebellion? "The cross of Christ," he says, "is to them that perish foolishness; but unto such as shall obtain salvation, it is the power of God and the wisdom of God."[207]

1 Cor. 1:18 - NIV, NAB - in Origen Against Celsus Book III

But it is probable that what is written by Paul in the first Epistle to the Corinthians,[150]

1 Cor. 1:18 - NIV, NAB - in Excerpts of Theodotus

As, then, the magnet, repelling other matter, attracts iron alone by reason of affinity; so also books, though many read them, attract those alone who are capable of comprehending them. For the word of truth is to some "foolishness,"[48]

1 Cor. 1:18 - NIV, NAB - in Excerpts of Theodotus

and to others a "stumbling-block; "[49]

1 Cor. 1:18 - NIV, NAB - in Excerpts of Theodotus

but to a few "wisdom."[50]

1 Cor. 1:19 - NIV, NAB - in Clement of Alexandria Stromata Book I

Of these and the like, who devote their attention to empty words, the divine Scripture most excellently says, "I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent."[46]

1 Cor. 1:19 - NIV, NAB - in Clement of Alexandria Stromata Book I

of this world, the philosophers of the Gentiles. "Hath not God made foolish the wisdom of the world? "[201]

1 Cor. 1:19 - NIV, NAB - in Clement of Alexandria Stromata Book V

And again, "I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent,"[19]

1 Cor. 1:19 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian Against Marcion Book V

And then, that we may known from whence this comes, he adds: "For it is written, `I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent.' "[208]

1 Cor. 1:19 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian Against Marcion Book V

-that God, no doubt, who in reference to this very dispensation of His threatened long before that He would "destroy the wisdom of the wise."[893]

1 Cor. 1:20 - NIV, NAB - in Epistle of Ignatius to the Ephesians

to those that do not believe, but to us salvation and life eternal. "Where is the wise man? where the disputer? "[124]

1 Cor. 1:20 - NIV, NAB - in Epistle of Ignatius to the Ephesians

The cross of Christ is indeed a stumbling-block to those that do not believe, but to the believing it is salvation and life eternal. "Where is the wise man? where the disputer? "[126]

1 Cor. 1:20 - NIV, NAB - in Clement of Alexandria Stromata Book V

"Where, then, is the scribe? where is the searcher of this world? Hath not God made foolish the wisdom of this world? "[18]

1 Cor. 1:20 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian On Idolatry

"Where is the wise, where the grammarian, where the disputer of this age? Hath not God made foolish the wisdom of this age? "[57]

1 Cor. 1:20 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian Against Marcion Book V

and the human race, for some great offence committed against Him, with the loss of wisdom and prudence? What follows will confirm this suggestion, when he asks, "Hath not God infatuated the wisdom of this world? "[212]

1 Cor. 1:20 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian On the Resurrection of the Flesh

according to the estimate of God, and that the very "Wisdom of the world is foolishness," (as the inspired word) pronounces it to be.[27]

1 Cor. 1:20 - NIV, NAB - in Lactantius Divine Institutes Book IV

But what can we suppose to have been the reason why it was not found, though sought with the greatest earnestness and labour by so many intellects, and during so many ages, unless it be that philosophers sought for it out of their own limits? And since they traversed and explored all parts, but nowhere found any wisdom, and it must of necessity be somewhere, it is evident that it ought especially to be sought there where the title of folly[6]

1 Cor. 1:21 - NIV, NAB - in Clement of Alexandria Stromata Book I

And if you ask the cause of their seeming wisdom, he will say, "because of the blindness of their heart; "since "in the wisdom of God," that is, as proclaimed by the prophets, "the world knew not," in the wisdom "which spake by the prophets," "Him,"[202]

1 Cor. 1:21 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian Against Marcion Book V

by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe."[214]

1 Cor. 1:21 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian On Modesty

See whether the heathen have in God the Father the "substance" of origin, and wisdom, and natural power of Godward recognition; by means of which power the apostle withal notes that "in the wisdom of God, the world through wisdom knew not God,"[108]

1 Cor. 1:21 - NIV, NAB - in Methodius Oration on the Psalms

Blessed is He that cometh in the name of the Lord: the King against the tyrant; not with omnipotent power and wisdom, but with that which is accounted the foolishness[46]

1 Cor. 1:21 - NIV, NAB - in Epitome of the Divine Institutes by Lactantius

Since, therefore, human wisdom has no existence (Socrates says in the writings of Plato), let us follow that which is divine, and let us give thanks to God, who has revealed and delivered it to us; and let us congratulate ourselves, that through the divine bounty we possess the truth and wisdom, which, though sought by so many intellects through so many ages, philosophy[66]

1 Cor. 1:21 - NIV, NAB - in Origen Commentary on Matthew Book XI

handing over to them an intelligent nation who were able to admit "the foolishness of the preaching,"[181]

1 Cor. 1:21 - NIV, NAB - in Origen Commentary on Matthew Book XII

But if you will understand the differences of the Word which by "the foolishness of preaching"[192]

1 Cor. 1:22 - NIV, NAB - in Clement of Alexandria Stromata Book I

Why, then, you will ask, did you think it fit that such an arrangement should be adopted in your memoranda? Because there is great danger in divulging the secret of the true philosophy to those, whose delight it is unsparingly to speak against everything, not justly; and who shout forth all kinds of names and words indecorously, deceiving themselves and beguiling those who adhere to them. "For the Hebrews seek signs," as the apostle says, "and the Greeks seek after wisdom."[43]

1 Cor. 1:22 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian Against Marcion Book V

"Because the Jews require signs," who ought to have already made up their minds about God, "and the Greeks seek after wisdom,"[217]

1 Cor. 1:22 - NIV, NAB - in Cyprian Treatise XII Three Books of Testimonies Against the Jews

"Because the Jews require a sign, and the Creeks seek after wisdom: but we preach Christ crucified, to the Jews indeed a stumbling-block, and to the Gentiles foolishness; but to them that are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God."[126]

1 Cor. 1:23 - NIV, NAB - in Irenaeus Against Heresies Book III

And again, writing to the Corinthians, he declares, "But we preach Christ Jesus crucified; "[329]

1 Cor. 1:23 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian An Answer to the Jews

of the passion itself should be figuratively set forth in predictions; and the more incredible (that mystery), the more likely to be "a stumbling-stone,"[199]

1 Cor. 1:23 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian Against Marcion Book V

are in the hands of Him who gave us the Scriptures which we use, it follows that the apostle, when treating of the Creator, (as Him whom both Jew and Gentile as yet have) not known, means undoubtedly to teach us, that the God who is to become known (in Christ) is the Creator. The very "stumbling-block" which he declares Christ to be "to the Jews,"[220]

1 Cor. 1:23 - NIV, NAB - in Origen Against Celsus Book I

For the preaching of Jesus Christ as crucified is the "foolishness" of preaching, as Paul also perceived, when he said, "But we preach Christ crucified, to the Jews a stumbling-block, and to the Greeks foolishness; but to them who are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God, and wisdom of God."[35]

1 Cor. 1:23 - NIV, NAB - in Origen Commentary on Matthew Book X

And if anyone thinks of Jesus Christ, "a stumbling-block to the Jews,"[98]

1 Cor. 1:24 - NIV, NAB - in Clement of Alexandria Stromata Book I

But the teaching, which is according to the Saviour, is complete in itself and without defect, being "the power and wisdom of God; "[231]

1 Cor. 1:24 - NIV, NAB - in Clement of Alexandria Stromata Book I

The law of this man who possesses knowledge is the saving precept; or rather, the law is the precept of knowledge. For the Word is "the power and the wisdom of God."[317]

1 Cor. 1:24 - NIV, NAB - in Clement of Alexandria Stromata Book VI

on hearing the voice of the Lord, whether that of His own person or that acting through His apostles, with all speed turned and believed. For we remember that the Lord is "the power of God,"[84]

1 Cor. 1:24 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian Against Praxeas

"Except Wisdom," however, is a phrase of the same sense exactly as "except the Son," who is Christ, "the Wisdom and Power of God,"[226]

1 Cor. 1:24 - NIV, NAB - in Origen de Principiis Book I

The first-born, however, is not by nature a different person from the Wisdom, but one and the same. Finally, the Apostle Paul says that "Christ (is) the power of God and the wisdom of God."[25]

1 Cor. 1:24 - NIV, NAB - in Origen de Principiis Book I

Nor was it fitting that there should be any other beginning save God Himself, from whom it derives its birth. And according to the expression of the apostle, that Christ "is the power of God,"[47]

1 Cor. 1:24 - NIV, NAB - in Melito the Philosopher

. In the apostle: "Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God; "[114]

1 Cor. 1:25 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian Against Marcion Book II

We, however, know that "the foolishness of God is wiser than men, and the weakness of God is stronger than men."[26]

1 Cor. 1:25 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian Against Marcion Book V

Now, what is that "foolishness of God which is wiser than men," but the cross and death of Christ? What is that "weakness of God which is stronger than men,"[225]

1 Cor. 1:26 - NIV, NAB - in Irenaeus Against Heresies Book II

But since neither he, nor the chief priests, nor the rulers, nor the eminent of the people, turned to Him [in faith], but, on the contrary, those who sat begging by the highway, the deaf, and the blind, while He was rejected and despised by others, according to what Paul declares, "For ye see your calling, brethren, that there are not many wise men among you, not many noble, not many mighty; but those things of the world which were despised hath God chosen."[110]

1 Cor. 1:26 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian To His Wife Book II

joys?-which, indeed, is chiefly found among the wealthier; for the more any is rich, and inflated with the name of "matron," the more capacious house does she require for her burdens, as it were a field wherein ambition may run its course. To such the churches look paltry. A rich man is a difficult thing (to find) in the house of God;[56]

1 Cor. 1:26 - NIV, NAB - in Origen de Principiis Book III

The declaration, moreover, "For ye see your calling, brethren, how that not many wise men among you according to the flesh are called,"[356]

1 Cor. 1:26 - NIV, NAB - in Origen Against Celsus Book III

And perhaps also from the words, "For ye see your calling, brethren, how that not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called: but God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and the base things, and the things which are despised, hath God chosen, and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are, that no flesh may glory in His presence;[156]

1 Cor. 1:26 - NIV, NAB - in Origen Against Celsus Book VI

At the present time, moreover, the Churches have, in proportion to the multitudes (of ordinary believers), a few "wise" men, who have come over to them from that wisdom which is said by us to be "according to the flesh; "[78]

1 Cor. 1:26 - NIV, NAB - in Origen Commentary on John Book IV

The mystery of the truth and the power of the things said were not hindered by the humble diction from travelling to the ends of the earth, nor from subduing to the word of Christ, not only the foolish things of the world, but sometimes its wise things, too. For we see our calling,[4]

1 Cor. 1:27 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian Against Marcion Book V

are not), "to bring to nothing things which are" (that is, which really are).[228]

1 Cor. 1:27 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian Against Marcion Book V

But how remote is our (Catholic) verity from the artifices of this heretic, when it dreads to arouse the anger of God, and firmly believes that He produced all things out of nothing, and promises to us a restoration from the grave of the same flesh (that died) and holds without a blush that Christ was born of the virgin's womb! At this, philosophers, and heretics, and the very heathen, laugh and jeer. For "God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise"[892]

1 Cor. 1:27 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian On the Flesh of Christ

But, Marcion, consider well this Scripture, if indeed you have not erased it: "God hath chosen the foolish things of the world, to confound the wise."[62]

1 Cor. 1:27 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian On the Resurrection of the Flesh

and again, "God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise? "[444]

1 Cor. 1:27 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian Against Praxeas

The foolish things also of the world hath God chosen to confound the things which are wise."[107]

1 Cor. 1:27 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian On Baptism

sufficient to meet each point is the divine declaration which has fore-run: "The foolish things of the world hath God elected to confound its wisdom; "[8]

1 Cor. 1:27 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian De Fuga in Persecutione

For the weak things of the world have been chosen by God to confound the strong, and the foolish things of the world to confound its wisdom.[5]

1 Cor. 1:27 - NIV, NAB - in Origen Against Celsus Book III

And Paul also, knowing this, said, "But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise,"[225]

1 Cor. 1:27 - NIV, NAB - in Origen Against Celsus Book VI

As the wise and learned among the Greeks, then, commit errors in the service which they render to God, God "chose the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and base things of the world, and things that are weak, and things which are despised, and things which are nought, to bring to nought things that are; "and this, truly, "that no flesh should glory in the presence of God."[16]

1 Cor. 1:27 - NIV, NAB - in Origen Against Celsus Book VII

God doubtless saw the pride and arrogance of those who, with contempt for all others, boast of their knowledge of God, and of their profound acquaintance with divine things obtained from philosophy, but who still, not less even than the most ignorant, run after their images, and temples, and famous mysteries; and seeing this, He "has chosen the foolish things of this world"[102]

1 Cor. 1:27 - NIV, NAB - in Origen Commentary on Matthew Book XI

disbelieved the Word, on this account "God chose the foolish things of the world,"[179]

1 Cor. 1:28 - NIV, NAB - in Origen Commentary on Matthew Book XI

namely, that which was not Israel, nor clear of vision, that He might put to shame the wise ones of Israel; and He called "the things which are not,"[180]

1 Cor. 1:29 - NIV, NAB - in Irenaeus Against Heresies Book III

and that he might always continue glorifying God, and giving thanks without ceasing, for that salvation which he has derived from Him, "that no flesh should glory in the Lord's presence; "[379]

1 Cor. 1:29 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian Against Marcion Book V

(the Creator) in the process of confusing opposites by their opposites, so that "no flesh shall glory; but, as it is written, He that glorieth, let him glory in the Lord."[233]

1 Cor. 1:29 - NIV, NAB - in Origen de Principiis Book III

From which it appears to me that the divine mysteries were concealed from the wise and prudent, according to the statement of Scripture, that "no flesh should glory before God,"[124]

1 Cor. 1:29 - NIV, NAB - in Origen de Principiis Book III

And observe, that for this reason divine things have been concealed from the wise and prudent, in order, as says the apostle, that "no flesh should glory in the presence of God; "[133]

1 Cor. 1:30 - NIV, NAB - in Origen Against Celsus Book V

for these things are in our view the Son of God, as His genuine disciple has shown, when he said of Him, "Who of God is made to us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption."[142]

1 Cor. 1:30 - NIV, NAB - in Origen Against Celsus Book VI

" But every one who prefers vice and a vicious life, is (because acting in a manner contrary to virtue) Satanas, that is, an "adversary" to the Son of God, who is righteousness, and truth, and wisdom.[227]

1 Cor. 1:30 - NIV, NAB - in Origen Commentary on John Book I

But who will deny that righteousness, essential righteousness, is a good, and essential sanctification, and essential redemption? And these things those preach who preach Jesus, saying[52]

1 Cor. 1:30 - NIV, NAB - in Origen Commentary on Matthew Book XII

And taking occasion from these things you will say that the righteous bear the surname of Christ who is Righteousness, and the wise of Christ who is Wisdom.[79]

1 Cor. 1:30 - NIV, NAB - in Origen Commentary on Matthew Book XII

for the expression, "I live, yet no longer I," was the voice of one denying himself, as of one who had laid aside his own life and taken on himself the Christ, in order that He might live in him as Righteousness, and as Wisdom, and as Sanctification, and as our Peace,[173]

1 Cor. 1:31 - NIV, NAB - in 1 Clement

Let us therefore, brethren, be of humble mind, laying aside all haughtiness, and pride, and foolishness, and angry feelings; and let us act according to that which is written (for the Holy Spirit saith, "Let not the wise man glory in his wisdom, neither let the mighty man glory in his might, neither let the rich man glory in his riches; but let him that glorieth glory in the Lord, in diligently seeking Him, and doing judgment and righteousness"[54]

1 Cor. 1:31 - NIV, NAB - in Epistle of Ignatius to the Trallians

But I measure myself, that I may not perish through boasting: but it is good to glory in the Lord.[20]

1 Cor. 1:31 - NIV, NAB - in Epistle of Ignatius to Hero, a Deacon of Antioch

I do not glory in the world, but in the Lord. I exhort Hero, my son; "but let him that glorieth, glory in the Lord."[24]

1 Cor. 1:31 - NIV, NAB - in Clement of Alexandria The Instructor Book I

But if human wisdom, as it remains to understand, is the glorying in knowledge, hear the law of Scripture: "Let not the wise man glory in his wisdom, and let not the mighty man glory in his might; but let him that glorieth glory in the Lord."[86]

1 Cor. 1:31 - NIV, NAB - in The History of Joseph the Carpenter

Tell them also this word which I have said to you to-day: Let not the strong man glory in his strength, nor the rich man in his riches; but let him who wishes to glory, glory in the Lord.[8]

1 Cor. 1:31 - NIV, NAB - in 1 Clement

Let us therefore, brethren, be of humble mind, laying aside all haughtiness, and pride, and foolishness, and angry feelings; and let us act according to that which is written (for the Holy Spirit saith, "Let not the wise man glory in his wisdom, neither let the mighty man glory in his might, neither let the rich man glory in his riches; but let him that glorieth glory in the Lord, in diligently seeking Him, and doing judgment and righteousness"[63]
