Proverbs 20:5-7 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

The intention of the human heart is deep water,
    but the intelligent draw it forth.[a]
Many say, “My loyal friend,”
    but who can find someone worthy of trust?
The just walk in integrity;
    happy are their children after them!


  1. 20:5 The heart is where human plans are made and stored; they remain “deep water” until words reveal them to others. The wise know how to draw up those waters, i.e., express them. Cf. 18:4.
