1 Corinthians 2.16

tiV gar egnw noun kuriou,

Who has known the mind of the Lord?  or who has been his counsellor, to instruct him

New Testament

Romans 11.34:  For who hath known the mind of the Lord?  or who hath been his counsellor?

1 Corinthians 2.16For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he should instruct him?  But we have the mind of Christ 

Masoretic Text

Who hath directed the Spirit of Jehovah, or being his counsellor hath taught him?

Comments:  The MT emphasizes the Lordís Spirit, which is decidedly different from the NT and the LXX, where the mind of the Lord is the object of inquiry.
