New International Version
21 My son,(A) do not let wisdom and understanding out of your sight,(B)
preserve sound judgment and discretion;
22 they will be life for you,(C)
an ornament to grace your neck.(D)
23 Then you will go on your way in safety,(E)
and your foot will not stumble.(F)
24 When you lie down,(G) you will not be afraid;(H)
when you lie down, your sleep(I) will be sweet.
25 Have no fear of sudden disaster
or of the ruin that overtakes the wicked,
26 for the Lord will be at your side(J)
and will keep your foot(K) from being snared.(L)
King James Version
21 My son, let not them depart from thine eyes: keep sound wisdom and discretion:
22 So shall they be life unto thy soul, and grace to thy neck.
23 Then shalt thou walk in thy way safely, and thy foot shall not stumble.
24 When thou liest down, thou shalt not be afraid: yea, thou shalt lie down, and thy sleep shall be sweet.
25 Be not afraid of sudden fear, neither of the desolation of the wicked, when it cometh.
26 For the Lord shall be thy confidence, and shall keep thy foot from being taken.Read full chapter
