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.

    we possess the Lord’s Instruction,”
        when the lying pen of the scribes has surely distorted it?
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?
