Take heed, you senseless ones among the people; you fools, when will you become wise?
Pay heed, you senseless among the people; And when will you understand, stupid ones?
Think again, you fools! When will you finally catch on?
Well, think again, you idiots, fools--how long before you get smart?
Give your mind to my words, you who are without wisdom among the people; you foolish men, when will you be wise?
Understand, O dullest of the people; fools, when will you be wise?
Understand, you senseless among the people; And you fools, when will you be wise?

1 tn Heb “understand.” The verb used in v. 7 is repeated here for rhetorical effect. The people referred to here claim God is ignorant of their actions, but the psalmist corrects their faulty viewpoint.
2 tn Heb “[you] brutish among the people.”
