New International Reader's Version
7 Storks know when to fly south.
So do doves, swifts and thrushes.
But my people do not know
what I require them to do.
8 “ ‘ “How can you people say, ‘We are wise.
We have the law of the Lord’?
Actually, the teachers of the law have told lies about it.
Their pens have not written what is true.
9 Those who think they are wise will be put to shame.
They will become terrified. They will be trapped.
They have not accepted my message.
So what kind of wisdom do they have?
