Whi gnastiden with teeth hethene men; and puplis thouyten veyn thingis?
1611 King James Version 
Why ** Aƈts. 4. 25. do the heathen ǁǁ Or, tumultuouſly aſſemble? rage, and the people †† Hebr. meditate. imagine a vaine thing?
1769 King James Version 
Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing?
Why do the nations rage, And the peoples meditate a vain thing?
Why do the nations rage,
- and the peoples plot a vain thing?
Why should the foreigners rile, and the nations speak nothings?
- יֶהְגּוּ-רִיק literally-- speak void, figuratively, talk hot air. The words for "nothingness" or "meaningless" are wrongly translated into "vanity" in several places.
