Proverbs 20:5-7 Contemporary English Version (CEV)

Someone’s thoughts may be
    as deep as the ocean,
    but if you are smart,
    you will discover them.

There are many who say,
“You can trust me!”
    But can they be trusted?
Good people live right,
    and God blesses the children
    who follow their example.

Proverbs 20:5-7 New International Version (NIV)

The purposes of a person’s heart are deep waters,
    but one who has insight draws them out.

Many claim to have unfailing love,
    but a faithful person who can find?

The righteous lead blameless lives;
    blessed are their children after them.
