Revised Standard Version
7 Even the stork in the heavens
knows her times;
and the turtledove, swallow, and crane[a]
keep the time of their coming;
but my people know not
the ordinance of the Lord.
8 “How can you say, ‘We are wise,
and the law of the Lord is with us’?
But behold, the false pen of the scribes
has made it into a lie.
9 The wise men shall be put to shame,
they shall be dismayed and taken;
lo, they have rejected the word of the Lord,
and what wisdom is in them?
- Jeremiah 8:7 The meaning of the Hebrew word is uncertain
