“For he that speaketh in an unknown tongue speaketh not unto men, but unto God: for no man understandeth him; howbeit in the spirit he speaketh mysteries.”
King James Version (KJV)
14:2 He that speaketh in an unknown tongue speaks, in effect, not to men, but to God - Who alone understands him.
1Co 14:2 For he that speaketh in an [unknown] language. Hath the gift of tongues. The tenor of Paul's remarks shows that the Corinthians placed too high a comparative estimate on this gift. In the spirit he speaketh mysteries. Things that are unknown and mysterious to his hearers. Men do not understand him.
