"So far as I can remember, there is not one word in the Gospels in praise of intelligence."
~ Bertrand Russell

Probably depends on ones version... I did a Bible Gateway search for "intelligence" and found these:

From KJV:

Daniel 11:30
"For the ships of Chittim shall come against him: therefore he shall be grieved, and return, and have indignation against the holy covenant: so shall he do; he shall even return, and have intelligence with them that forsake the holy covenant."

and from NIV:

· 2 Chronicles 2:12
And Hiram added: "Praise be to the LORD, the God of Israel, who made heaven and earth! He has given King David a wise son, endowed with intelligence and discernment, who will build a temple for the LORD and a palace for himself.

· Isaiah 29:14
Therefore once more I will astound these people with wonder upon wonder; the wisdom of the wise will perish, the intelligence of the intelligent will vanish."

· Daniel 5:11
There is a man in your kingdom who has the spirit of the holy gods in him. In the time of your father he was found to have insight and intelligence and wisdom like that of the gods. King Nebuchadnezzar your father—your father the king, I say—appointed him chief of the magicians, enchanters, astrologers and diviners.

· Daniel 5:14
I have heard that the spirit of the gods is in you and that you have insight, intelligence and outstanding wisdom.

· 1 Corinthians 1:19
For it is written: "I will destroy the wisdom of the wise; the intelligence of the intelligent I will frustrate." [ Isaiah 29:14]


- Matt

Perhaps this is merely a technicality, but Russell's quote specifically states "gospels." Daniel, 2 Chronicles, Isaiah, and 1 Corinthians are not gospels.
