The Treasury of Scripture Knowledge

Chapter Overview
 
1After his salutation and thanksgiving,
10he exhorts them to unity,
12and reproves their dissensions.
18God destroys the wisdom of the wise,
21by the foolishness of preaching;
26and calls not the wise, mighty, and noble,
28but the foolish, weak, and men of no account.
