Proverbs 20:5-7 Complete Jewish Bible (CJB)

The heart’s real intentions are like deep water;
    but a person with discernment draws them out.

Most people announce that they show kindness,
    but who can find someone faithful [enough to do it]?

The righteous live a life of integrity;
    happy are their children after them.

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.
