Proverbs 22:5-7 21st Century King James Version (KJ21)

Thorns and snares are in the path of the froward; he that doth keep his soul shall stay far from them.

Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it.

The rich ruleth over the poor, and the borrower is servant to the lender.

Proverbs 22:5-7 New International Version (NIV)

In the paths of the wicked are snares and pitfalls,
    but those who would preserve their life stay far from them.

Start children off on the way they should go,
    and even when they are old they will not turn from it.

The rich rule over the poor,
    and the borrower is slave to the lender.
