Jeremiah 8:9 New World Translation of the Holy Scriptures (Study Edition) 9 The wise have been put to shame.+ They have become terrified and will be caught. Look! They have rejected the word of Jehovah,And what wisdom do they have? James 1:23, 24 New World Translation of the Holy Scriptures (Study Edition) 23 For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer,+ this one is like a man looking at his own face* in a mirror. 24 For he looks at himself, and he goes away and immediately forgets what sort of person he is.
