Common English Bible
7 Even the stork in the sky knows the seasons,
and the dove, swallow,[a] and crane[b]
return in due time.
But my people don’t know the Lord’s ways.
8 How can you say, “We are wise;
we possess the Lord’s Instruction,”
when the lying pen of the scribes has surely distorted it?
9 The wise will be shamed and shocked
when they are caught.
Look, they have rejected the Lord’s word;
what kind of wisdom is that?
