||For the Jews ask for signs, and the Greeks seek wisdom.
||But we are preaching Christ crucified. Certainly, to the Jews, this is a scandal, and to the Gentiles, this is foolishness.
||But to those who have been called, Jews as well as Greeks, the Christ is the virtue of God and the wisdom of God.
||For what is foolishness to God is considered wise by men, and that which is weakness to God is considered strong by men.
||So take care of your vocation, brothers. For not many are wise according to the flesh, not many are powerful, not many are noble.
||But God has chosen the foolish of the world, so that he may confound the wise. And God has chosen the weak of the world, so that he may confound the strong.
||And God has chosen the ignoble and contemptible of the world, those who are nothing, so that he may reduce to nothing those who are something.
