There is no wisdom, no insight, no plan that can succeed against the LORD.
There is no wisdom and no understanding And no counsel against the LORD.
Human plans, no matter how wise or well advised, cannot stand against the LORD.
Nothing clever, nothing conceived, nothing contrived, can get the better of GOD.
Wisdom and knowledge and wise suggestions are of no use against the Lord.
No wisdom, no understanding, no counsel, can avail against the LORD.
There is no wisdom or understanding Or counsel against the LORD.

1 tn The form לְנֶגֶד (lÿneged) means “against; over against; in opposition to.” The line indicates they cannot in reality be in opposition, for human wisdom is nothing in comparison to the wisdom of God (J. H. Greenstone, Proverbs, 232).
2 sn The verse uses a single sentence to state that all wisdom, understanding, and advice must be in conformity to the will of God to be successful. It states it negatively – these things cannot be in defiance of God (e.g., Job 5:12-13; Isa 40:13-14).
