Proclaiming Christ Crucified
And I, when I came to you, brothers, x did not come proclaiming to you y the testimony of God with lofty speech or wisdom.
For I decided to know nothing among you except z Jesus Christ and him crucified.
And a I was with you b in weakness and in fear and much trembling,
and my speech and my message were not in plausible words of wisdom, but in demonstration of c the Spirit and of power,
that your faith might not rest in the wisdom of men but d in the power of God.
