13 Then the Lord said,

“Because (A)this people draw near with their [a]words
And honor Me with their [b]lip service,
But they remove their hearts far from Me,
And their [c]reverence for Me [d]consists of [e]tradition learned by rote,
14 Therefore behold, I will once again deal (B)marvelously with this people, wondrously marvelous;
And (C)the wisdom of their wise men will perish,
And the discernment of their discerning men will be concealed.”
