Therefore, you kings, be wise; be warned, you rulers of the earth.
Now therefore, O kings, show discernment; Take warning, O judges of the earth.
Now then, you kings, act wisely! Be warned, you rulers of the earth!
So, rebel-kings, use your heads; Upstart-judges, learn your lesson:
So now be wise, you kings: take his teaching, you judges of the earth.
Now therefore, O kings, be wise; be warned, O rulers of the earth.
Now therefore, be wise, O kings; Be instructed, you judges of the earth.
