Parallel Strong's
Holman Christian Standard Bible
Don’t say, “ Why were the former days better than these? ” since it is not wise of you to ask this.

New American Standard Bible
Do not say, "Why is it that the former days were better than these?" For it is not from wisdom that you ask about this.

King James Bible
Say not thou, What is [the cause] that the former days were better than these? for thou dost not enquire wisely concerning this.
Parallel Verses
International Standard Version
Never ask "Why does the past seem so much better than now?" because this question does not come from wisdom.

American Standard Version
Say not thou, What is the cause that the former days were better than these? for thou dost not inquire wisely concerning this.

Young's Literal Translation
Say not thou, 'What was it, That the former days were better than these?' For thou hast not asked wisely of this.
