He leads rulers away stripped and makes fools of judges.
King James Bible
He leadeth counsellers away spoiled, and maketh the judges fools.
American Standard Version
He leadeth counsellors away stripped, And judges maketh he fools.
Young's Literal Translation
Causing counsellors to go away a spoil, And judges He maketh foolish.
Job 12:17 Additional TranslationsClarke's Commentary on the Bible
He leadeth counsellors away spoiled - The events of war are also in his hand. It is he who gives victory; through him even the counsellors - the great men and chief men, are often led into captivity, and found among the spoils.
And maketh the judges fools - He infatuates the judges. Does this refer to the foolish conduct of some of the Israelitish judges, such as Samson?
