Isaiah 19:11-13 The Passion Translation (TPT)
The Wisdom of Egypt Is Foolishness to God
11 The elite of Zoan are nothing but fools,
and the wisest of Pharaoh’s counselors gives foolish advice.
How in the world can you say to Pharaoh,
“I am a brilliant sage and a descendant of the ancient kings”?
12 Where, oh where, are all your sages?
If they’re so wise, let them discover and tell you
what the Lord Yahweh, Commander of Angel Armies,
has planned for Egypt.
13 Zoan’s elite have become utter fools;
the nobles of Memphis are utterly deceived,
and Egypt has been led astray by her tribal chiefs.
