CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
He taketh the wise in their own craftiness - So counterworks them as to cause their feet to be taken in their own snares, and their evil dealings to fall on their own pate.

Your sin prompts your mouth; you adopt the tongue of the crafty.
Therefore, people revere him, for does he not have regard for all the wise in heart?"
