1 Corinthians 1:29

That no flesh should glory before God (opwv mh kauxhshtai pasa sarx enwpion tou teou).
This is the further purpose expressed by opwv for variety and appeals to God's ultimate choice in all three instances. The first aorist middle of the old verb kauxaomai, to boast, brings out sharply that not a single boast is to be made. The papyri give numerous examples of enwpion as a preposition in the vernacular, from adjective en-wpiov, in the eye of God. One should turn to 2 Corinthians 4:7 for Paul's further statement about our having this treasure in earthen vessels that the excellency of the power may be of God and not of us.
