Do not glory in your own wisdom, might, or riches. For I give you wisdom. I am your strength. I am your provider. Yet, truly grow in your knowledge and understanding of Me as God, your Father. Then, you may boast in the fact that I am the Lord of justice and righteousness who shows lovingkindness towards you. And I delight in doing so!
King James Version (KJV)
23 Thus saith the Lord, Let not the wise man glory in his wisdom, neither let the mighty man glory in his might, let not the rich man glory in his riches:
24 But let him that glorieth glory in this, that he understandeth and knoweth me, that I am the Lord which exercise lovingkindness, judgment, and righteousness, in the earth: for in these things I delight, saith the Lord.
Living Bible (TLB)
23 The Lord says: Let not the wise man bask in his wisdom, nor the mighty man in his might, nor the rich man in his riches.
24 Let them boast in this alone: That they truly know me, and understand that I am the Lord of justice and of righteousness whose love is steadfast; and that I love to be this way.
New Living Translation (NLT)
23 This is what the Lord says:
“Don’t let the wise boast in their wisdom,
or the powerful boast in their power,
or the rich boast in their riches.
24 But those who wish to boast
should boast in this alone:
that they truly know me and understand that I am the Lord
who demonstrates unfailing love
and who brings justice and righteousness to the earth,
and that I delight in these things. I, the Lord, have spoken!
Jeremías 9:23-24 Dios Habla Hoy (DHH)
23 (22) El Señor dice:
«Que no se enorgullezca el sabio de ser sabio,
ni el poderoso de su poder,
ni el rico de su riqueza.
24 (23) Si alguien se quiere enorgullecer,
que se enorgullezca de conocerme,
de saber que yo soy el Señor,
que actúo en la tierra con amor, justicia y rectitud,
pues eso es lo que a mí me agrada. Yo, el Señor, lo afirmo.
