1 Corinthians 3:18

Let no man deceive himself (Mhdeiv eauton exapatw).
A warning that implied that some of them were guilty of doing it (mh and the present imperative). Excited partisans can easily excite themselves to a pious phrenzy, hypnotize themselves with their own supposed devotion to truth.

Thinketh that he is wise (dokei sopov einai).
Condition of first class and assumed to be true. Predicate nominative sopov with the infinitive to agree with subject of dokei (Robertson, Grammar, p. 1038). Paul claimed to be "wise" himself in verse 10 and he desires that the claimant to wisdom may become wise (ina genhtai sopov, purpose clause with ina and subjunctive) by becoming a fool (mwrov genestw, second aorist middle imperative of ginomai) as this age looks at him. This false wisdom of the world (1:18-20,23; 2:14), this self-conceit, has led to strife and wrangling. Cut it out.
