New Living Translation
No, the wisdom we speak of is the mystery of God--his plan that was previously hidden, even though he made it for our ultimate glory before the world began.
King James Bible
But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory:
Darby Bible Translation
But we speak God's wisdom in a mystery, that hidden wisdom which God had predetermined before the ages for our glory:
World English Bible
But we speak God's wisdom in a mystery, the wisdom that has been hidden, which God foreordained before the worlds for our glory,
Young's Literal Translation
but we speak the hidden wisdom of God in a secret, that God foreordained before the ages to our glory,
1 Corinthians 2:7 Parallel
CommentaryWesley's Notes on the Bible
2:7 But we speak the mysterious wisdom of God, which was hidden for many ages from all the world, and is still hidden even from babes in Christ; much more from all unbelievers. Which God ordained before the world - So far is this from coming to nought, like worldly wisdom. For our glory - Arising from the glory of our Lord, and then to be revealed when all worldly glory vanishes.

A Knowledge of God
The Personality of the Holy Spirit.
No Minister Ought to Keep a Faithful Person from the Communion, that Does Desire and Ask It, Whilst He Doth not Know his Conscience Defiled with Mortal Sin.
For God knew his people in advance, and he chose them to become like his Son, so that his Son would be the firstborn among many brothers and sisters.
And having chosen them, he called them to come to him. And having called them, he gave them right standing with himself. And having given them right standing, he gave them his glory.
I want you to understand this mystery, dear brothers and sisters, so that you will not feel proud about yourselves. Some of the people of Israel have hard hearts, but this will last only until the full number of Gentiles comes to Christ.
Now all glory to God, who is able to make you strong, just as my Good News says. This message about Jesus Christ has revealed his plan for you Gentiles, a plan kept secret from the beginning of time.
1 Corinthians 2:1
When I first came to you, dear brothers and sisters, I didn't use lofty words and impressive wisdom to tell you God's secret plan.
God's purpose in all this was to use the church to display his wisdom in its rich variety to all the unseen rulers and authorities in the heavenly places.
And now in these final days, he has spoken to us through his Son. God promised everything to the Son as an inheritance, and through the Son he created the universe.
