International Standard Version
7 Even the stork in the sky knows its seasons,
and the dove, the swallow, and the crane observe the time for migration.
But my people don’t know
the requirements[a] of the Lord.
8 How can you say, ‘We’re wise,
and the Law of the Lord is with us,’
when, in fact, the deceitful pen of the scribe has made it
into something that deceives.
9 The wise men will be put to shame.
They’ll be dismayed and taken captive.
Look, they have rejected the message from the Lord!
So what kind of wisdom do they have?
- Jeremiah 8:7 I.e. the behavior God expects of his people
