Isaiah 8:9-10; 1 Corinthians 3:19-20; Proverbs 19:21

Be broken,1 you peoples, and kbe shattered;2

give ear, all you far countries;

strap on your armor and be shattered;

strap on your armor and be shattered.

10  Take counsel together, but it will come to nothing;

speak a word, lbut it will not stand,

for God mis with us.3


19 For gthe wisdom of this world is folly with God. For it is written, hHe catches the wise in their craftiness, 20 and again, iThe Lord knows the thoughts of the wise, that they are futile.


21  iMany are the plans in the mind of a man,

but jit is the purpose of the Lord kthat will stand.
