Contradiction dealing with inerrency within the Bible

Biblical inerrancy is the #1 defense that Christian apologetics use to “prove” their sacred text is the supreme law of the land.

2 Timothy 3:16 (King James Version)

All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:

According to this, all scripture is divine, and thus inerrant. But, according to Jeremiah 8:8,

How do ye say, We are wise, and the law of the LORD is with us? Lo, certainly in vain made he it; the pen of the scribes is in vain.

it says that the Bible was written in vain (with errors). Which one is right? I’d say that since one says the whole Bible is true, and the other says the Bible has errors, then the first confirms the second, which makes the second true and invalidates the first. Conclusively, the Bible is in error, and could not have been inspired by a god.
