If people want to boast, they should boast about this: They should boast that they understand and know me. They should boast that they know and understand that I, the Lord, act out of faithfulness, fairness, and justice in the earth and that I desire people to do these things," says the Lord.

And again, "The Lord knows that the thoughts of the wise are futile." So then, no more boasting about mere mortals! For everything belongs to you,

The sovereign master says, "These people say they are loyal to me; they say wonderful things about me, but they are not really loyal to me. Their worship consists of nothing but man-made ritual.

Where is the debater of this age? Has God not made the wisdom of the world foolish?
