Speaking in Tongues: 1 Corinthians 14:2

   For speaking glossa (tongues) speaks not to [any] mortal but to God (only) for no person understands Howbeit in the spirit they speak mysteries[1]

[1] 1 Corinthians 14:2 is a witness that tongues (glossa) are not always earthly languages. The apostle wrote that when a person speaks in tongues no one understands them except God. There are tongues of men, but there are also, as Paul states in chapter 13, tongues of angels as well.
