Proverbs 3:5-8 New King James Version (NKJV)

Trust in the Lord with all your heart,
And lean not on your own understanding;
In all your ways acknowledge Him,
And He shall [a]direct your paths.

Do not be wise in your own eyes;
Fear the Lord and depart from evil.
It will be health to your [b]flesh,
And strength[c] to your bones.
