There are different wordings:

  • "Allahumma inni a'udhu bika min 'ilmin la yanfa'u, wa qalbin la yakhsha'u, wa du'a'in la yasma'u, wa nafsin la tashba'u.
    (O Allah, I seek refuge with You from
    knowledge that is of no benefit,
    a heart that is not humble,
    a supplication that is not heard
    and a soul that is not satisfied.)"
    Then he would say: 'Allahumma inni a'udhu bika min ha'ula'il-arba'
    (O Allah, I seek refuge with You from these four.)'"
    (Sunan ibn Majah)

  • " 'Allahumma inni a'udhu bika min al-arba': min 'ilmin la yanfa'u, wa min qalbin la yakhsha'u, wa min nafsin la tashba'u, wa min du'a'in la yusma'u
    (O Allah, I seek refuge in You from four:
    From knowledge that is of no benefit,
    from a heart that is not humble,
    from a soul that is not satisfied
    and from a supplication that is not answered.)'"
    (Sunan an-Nasa-i, see also here, here and in Sunan ibn Majah)

  • 'Allahumma, inni a'udhu bika min 'ilmin la yanfa'u, wa mindu'a'in la yusma'u, wa min qalbin la yakhsha'u, wa min nafsin la tashba'u
    [O Allah, I seek refuge with You
    from knowledge that is of no benefit,
    from a supplication that is not heard,
    from a heart that does not fear (You)
    and from a soul that is not satisfied].'"
    (Sunan ibn Majah and Sunan abi Dawod

  • “O Allah, I seek refuge in You
    from a heart that does not humble itself,
    and from a supplication that is not heard,
    and from a soul that is never satisfied,
    and from knowledge that does not benefit,
    I seek refuge in You from these four
    (Allāhumma innī a'ūdhu bika min qalbin lā yakhsha'u, wa min du'ā’in lā yusma'u, wa min nafsin lā tashba'u, wa min 'ilmin lā yanfa'u, a'ūdhu bika min hā’ula’il-arba`).”
    (Jami' at-Tirmidhi)

  • 'Allahumma inni a'udhu bika min al-'ajzi wal-kasali, wal-bukhli, wal-jubni, wal-harami, wa 'adhabil-qabri. Allahumma at nafsi taqwaha, wa zakkaha anta khairu min zakkaha, anta waliyyuha wa mawlaha. Allahumma inni a'udhu bika min nafsin la tashba'u wa min qalbin la yakhsha'u wa min 'ilmin la yanfa'u wa du'a'in la yustajab
    (O Allah, I seek refuge in You
    from incapacity, laziness, miserliness, cowardice, old age, the torment of the grave. O Allah, make my soul obedient and purify it, for You are the best One to purify it, You are its Guardian and Lord. O Allah, I seek refuge in You
    from a soul that is not satisfied,
    a heart that is not humble,
    knowledge that is of no benefit
    and a supplication that is not answered.)'
    (Sahih Muslim and Sunan an-Nasa-i)

and as you see not all have the same order of the words and supplications.
