"Them that are perfect" (I Cor. 2:6)—The Greek term which is here translated "perfect" is also used in a number of different senses, which include "mature," "complete,' and "full-grown." Thus, while the Riverside New Testament has: "We do speak wisdom among the mature," the American Standard Version renders: "we speak wisdom, however, among them that are fullgrown."
"We speak the wisdom of God in a mystery" (I Cor. 2:7)—Moffatt suggests: "It is the mysterious Wisdom of God that we discuss;" Goodspeed prefers: "It is a mysterious, divine wisdom that we impart."
"The natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God" (I Cor. 2:14)—The word which is here rendered "natural" is, in Greek, "psuchikos," that is, having to do with the "psuche," which has been defined as "the sensuous nature with its subjection to appetite and passion." Moffatt renders" "The unspiritual man rejects these truths of the Spirit of God;" while the Riverside New Testament has: "The animal man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God."
