New International Version
But they will not get very far because, as in the case of those men, their folly will be clear to everyone.
King James Bible

World English Bible

But they shall proceed no farther - Such teaching and teachers shall never be able ultimately to prevail against the truth; for the foundation of God standeth sure.
Their folly shall be manifest - As the Scriptures, which are the only rule of morals and doctrine, shall ever be preserved; so, sooner or later, all false doctrines shall be tried by them: and the folly of men, setting up their wisdom against the wisdom of God, must become manifest to all. False doctrine cannot prevail long where the sacred Scriptures are read and studied. Error prevails only where the book of God is withheld from the people.

Each one threw down his staff and it became a snake. But Aaron's staff swallowed up their staffs.
But when the magicians tried to produce gnats by their secret arts, they could not. Since the gnats were on people and animals everywhere,
The magicians could not stand before Moses because of the boils that were on them and on all the Egyptians.
