Parallel Verses
New American Standard Bible
Whatever exists has already been named, and it is known what man is; for he cannot dispute with him who is stronger than he is.

King James Bible
That which hath been is named already, and it is known that it is man: neither may he contend with him that is mightier than he.

Holman Christian Standard Bible
Whatever exists was given its name long ago, and it is known what man is. But he is not able to contend with the One stronger than he.
