But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory:

World English Bible

CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible

I do not want you to be ignorant of this mystery, brothers and sisters, so that you may not be conceited: Israel has experienced a hardening in part until the full number of the Gentiles has come in,
Now to him who is able to establish you in accordance with my gospel, the message I proclaim about Jesus Christ, in keeping with the revelation of the mystery hidden for long ages past,
1 Corinthians 2:1
And so it was with me, brothers and sisters. When I came to you, I did not come with eloquence or human wisdom as I proclaimed to you the testimony about God.
His intent was that now, through the church, the manifold wisdom of God should be made known to the rulers and authorities in the heavenly realms,
but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed heir of all things, and through whom also he made the universe.
