The LORD foils the plans of the nations; he thwarts the purposes of the peoples.
The LORD nullifies the counsel of the nations; He frustrates the plans of the peoples.
The LORD shatters the plans of the nations and thwarts all their schemes.
GOD takes the wind out of Babel pretense, he shoots down the world's power-schemes.
The Lord undoes the designs of the nations; he makes the thoughts of the peoples without effect.
The LORD brings the counsel of the nations to nothing; he frustrates the plans of the peoples.
The LORD brings the counsel of the nations to nothing; He makes the plans of the peoples of no effect.
