Such “wisdom” does not come down from heaven but is earthly, unspiritual, of the devil.
The Amplified Bible

This [superficial] wisdom is not such as comes down from above, but is earthly, unspiritual (animal), even devilish (demoniacal).
Wuest’s Expanded Translation

This wisdom is not the wisdom which comes down from above, but is earthly, unspiritual [having to do with the natural, physical existence as over against the spiritual world of the supernatural], demonic;
Phillips’ Modern English

You may acquire a certain wisdom, but it does not come from above – it comes from the world, from your own lower nature, even from the devil.
Williams’ Language of the People

This is not the kind of wisdom that comes down from above; no, it is earthly, human, demoniacal.
