New King James Version
8 “How can you say, ‘We are wise,
(C)And the law of the Lord is with us’?
Look, the false pen of the scribe certainly works falsehood.
9 (D)The wise men are ashamed,
They are dismayed and taken.
Behold, they have rejected the word of the Lord;
So (E)what wisdom do they have?
New International Version
7 Even the stork in the sky
knows her appointed seasons,
and the dove, the swift and the thrush
observe the time of their migration.
But my people do not know(A)
the requirements of the Lord.
8 “‘How can you say, “We are wise,
for we have the law(B) of the Lord,”
when actually the lying pen of the scribes
has handled it falsely?
9 The wise(C) will be put to shame;
they will be dismayed(D) and trapped.(E)
Since they have rejected the word(F) of the Lord,
what kind of wisdom(G) do they have?
