But ye are [a]of him in Christ Jesus, [b]who of God is made unto us wisdom and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption.
1Corinthians 1:30 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)
[a] Whom he cast down before, now he lifteth up, yea, higher then all men: yet so, that he showeth them all their worthiness is without themselves, that is, standeth in Christ, and that of God.
[b] He teacheth that especially and above all things, the Gospel ought not to be contemned, seeing it containeth the chiefst things that are to be desired, to wit, true wisdom, the true way to obtain righteousness, the true way to live honestly and godly, the true deliverance from all miseries and calamities.
