1 Corinthians 3:18-20 New Matthew Bible (NMB)
18 Let no one deceive himself.
If any man seems wise among you, let him be a fool in this world so that he may be wise. 19 For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written: He compasses the wise in their craftiness. 20 And again: God knows the thoughts of the wise, that they are vain.
