1 Corinthians 2, 16

Verse 16

St Paul quotes for Isaiah 40,13 NASB

16 For WHO HAS KNOWN THE MIND OF THE LORD, THAT HE WILL INSTRUCT HIM? But we have the mind of Christ. 1 Corinthians 2:16

The fuller quotation below ads a little bit more meat to this.  God is Lord no one instructs Him! Yet we are considered more than mere specks because while we were sinners God came down and died in our place… This is too hard a thing for me to fathom.  We appropriate it by grace and faith.

13  Who has directed the Spirit of the LORD,
Or as His counselor has informed Him?
14  With whom did He consult and who gave Him understanding?
And who taught Him in the path of justice and taught Him knowledge
And informed Him of the way of understanding?
15 Behold, the nations are like a drop from a bucket,
And are regarded as a speck of dust on the scales; Isaiah 40:13-15
