Proverbs 30:7-9 GOD’S WORD Translation (GW)

A Prayer

[To God]

“I’ve asked you for two things.
Don’t keep them from me before I die:
    Keep vanity and lies far away from me.
    Don’t give me either poverty or riches.
        Feed me only the food I need,
            or I may feel satisfied and deny you
                and say, ‘Who is the Lord?’
            or I may become poor and steal
                and give the name of my God a bad reputation.

Proverbs 30:7-9 New International Version (NIV)

“Two things I ask of you, Lord;
    do not refuse me before I die:
Keep falsehood and lies far from me;
    give me neither poverty nor riches,
    but give me only my daily bread.
Otherwise, I may have too much and disown you
    and say, ‘Who is the Lord?’
Or I may become poor and steal,
    and so dishonor the name of my God.

Proverbs 30:7-9 King James Version (KJV)

Two things have I required of thee; deny me them not before I die:

Remove far from me vanity and lies: give me neither poverty nor riches; feed me with food convenient for me:

Lest I be full, and deny thee, and say, Who is the Lord? or lest I be poor, and steal, and take the name of my God in vain.
