New Revised Standard Version Catholic Edition
7 Even the stork in the heavens
knows its times;
and the turtledove, swallow, and crane[a]
observe the time of their coming;
but my people do not know
the ordinance of the Lord.
8 How can you say, “We are wise,
and the law of the Lord is with us,”
when, in fact, the false pen of the scribes
has made it into a lie?
9 The wise shall be put to shame,
they shall be dismayed and taken;
since they have rejected the word of the Lord,
what wisdom is in them?
