Even if they be many, do not rejoice in them if they do not have fear of the Lord.
If they multiply, do not rejoice in them, unless the fear of the Lord is in them.
If they multiply, do not rejoice in them, unless the fear of the Lord is in them.
If they multiply, do not rejoice in them, unless the fear of the Lord is in them.
If they multiply, do not rejoice in them, unless the fear of the Lord is in them.
If they multiply, do not rejoice in them, unless the fear of the Lord is in them.
If they multiply, do not rejoice in them, unless the fear of the Lord is in them.
Be thou not glad in wicked sons, if they be multiplied; neither delight thou on (or in) them, if the dread of God is not in them. [Make thou not merry in unpious sons, if they be multiplied; nor delight thou upon them, if there is not the dread of God in them.]
