1 Corinthians 3:18-20 J.B. Phillips New Testament (PHILLIPS)
18-19 Let no one be under any illusion over this. If any man among you thinks himself one of the world’s clever ones, let him discard his cleverness that he may learn to be truly wise. For this world’s cleverness is stupidity to God. It is written: ‘He catches the wise in their own craftiness’.
20 And again: ‘The Lord knows the thoughts of the wise, that they are futile’.
