1 Corinthians 2:9

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 9 But as it is written, "Man's eye has not seen, or ear heard, or mind imagined, the things that God has prepared for those who love him."2 [This refers to Isaiah 64:4, which says: men have not heard, nor perceived by ear, nor has the eye seen a God beside you, who acts for the one who waits for Him. The key difference: Isaiah reads waits, 1 Cor reads love. So to love God is to wait on Him: we wait on Him to hear His words that teach us, convict us, encourage us, and guide us — that is loving God.]

Isaiah 64:4

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 4 For since the beginning of the world men have not heard, nor perceived by ear, nor has the eye seen a God beside you, who acts for the one who waits for him.1 [Paul quotes this scripture in 1 Corinthians: ""Man's eye has not seen, or ear heard, or mind imagined, the things that God has prepared for those who love him." The key difference: Isaiah reads waits, 1 Cor 2:9 reads love. So to love God is to wait on Him: we wait on Him to hear His words that teach us, convict us, encourage us, and guide us — that is loving God.]
