Paul contrasts the wisdom of God versus the wisdom of man. These two are at odds with each other - and God would have it that way. He is pleased to come across foolish to the worldl-wise but infinitely wise and powerful to those who are his own.

ὁ λόγος γὰρ ὁ τοῦ σταυροῦ τοῖς μὲν ἀπολλυμένοις μωρία ἐστίν,
For the word of the cross is folly to those who are perishing,
τοῖς δὲ σῳζομένοις ἡμῖν δύναμις θεοῦ ἐστιν.
but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.
concessive
γέγραπται γάρ ,
For it is written,
ἀπολῶ τὴν σοφίαν τῶν σοφῶν ,
"I will destroy the wisdom of the wise,
καὶ τὴν σύνεσιν τῶν συνετῶν ἀθετήσω .
and the discernment of the discerning I will thwart."

ποῦ σοφός ;
Where is the one who is wise?
ποῦ γραμματεύς;
Where is the scribe?
ποῦ συζητητὴς τοῦ αἰῶνος τούτου;
Where is the debater of this age?
οὐχὶ ἐμώρανεν ὁ θεὸς τὴν σοφίαν τοῦ κόσμου;
Has not God made foolish the wisdom of the world?
ἐπειδὴ γὰρ ἐν τῇ σοφίᾳ τοῦ θεοῦ οὐκ ἔγνω ὁ κόσμος διὰ τῆς σοφίας τὸν θεόν,
For since, in the wisdom of God, the world did not know God through wisdom,
εὐδόκησεν ὁ θεὸς
it pleased God
διὰ τῆς μωρίας τοῦ κηρύγματος
through the folly of what we preach
σῶσαι τοὺς πιστεύοντας.
to save those who believe.
ἐπειδὴ καὶ Ἰουδαῖοι σημεῖα αἰτοῦσιν
For Jews demand signs
καὶ Ἕλληνες σοφίαν ζητοῦσιν,
and Greeks seek wisdom,
ἡμεῖς δὲ κηρύσσομεν Χριστὸν ἐσταυρωμένον ,
but we preach Christ crucified,
Ἰουδαίοις μὲν σκάνδαλον ἔθνεσιν δὲ μωρίαν,
a stumbling block to Jews and folly to Gentiles,
αὐτοῖς δὲ τοῖς κλητοῖς, Ἰουδαίοις τε καὶ Ἕλλησιν, Χριστὸν θεοῦ δύναμιν καὶ θεοῦ σοφίαν ·
but to those who are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ [is] the power of God and the wisdom of God.
ideaexplanation
ὅτι τὸ μωρὸν τοῦ θεοῦ σοφώτερον τῶν ἀνθρώπων ἐστίν,
For the foolishness of God is wiser than men,
καὶ τὸ ἀσθενὲς τοῦ θεοῦ ἰσχυρότερον τῶν ἀνθρώπων.
and the weakness of God is stronger than men.
