“For ye see your calling, brethren, how that not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called:”
King James Version (KJV)
1:26 Behold your calling - What manner of men they are whom God calls. That not many wise men after the flesh - In the account of the world. Not many mighty - Men of power and authority.
1Co 1:26 Not many wise men after the flesh. Paul now shows the weakness of the human instrumentality chosen to convert the world; not those the world called wise, not the mighty, not the noble, yet the work was moving on with wonderful power.
