Indeed, many are the conceits of human beings; evil imaginations lead them astray.
For their conceit has led many astray, and wrong opinion has impaired their judgment.
For their conceit has led many astray, and wrong opinion has impaired their judgement.
For their conceit has led many astray, and wrong opinion has impaired their judgement.
For their conceit has led many astray, and wrong opinion has impaired their judgment.
For their hasty judgment has led many astray, and wrong opinion has caused their thoughts to slip.
For their hasty judgment has led many astray, and wrong opinion has caused their thoughts to slip.
For the suspicion of many men hath deceived them(selves), and withheld their wits in vanity. [Many forsooth supplanted the suspicion of them, and in vanity held down the wits of them.]
