New Revised Standard (NRS) New International Version (NIV)
17 As for those who in the present age are rich, command them not to be haughty, or to set their hopes on the uncertainty of riches, but rather on God who richly provides us with everything for our enjoyment. 17 Command those who are rich in this present world not to be arrogant nor to put their hope in wealth, which is so uncertain, but to put their hope in God, who richly provides us with everything for our enjoyment.
18 They are to do good, to be rich in good works, generous, and ready to share, 18 Command them to do good, to be rich in good deeds, and to be generous and willing to share.
19 thus storing up for themselves the treasure of a good foundation for the future, so that they may take hold of the life that really is life. 19 In this way they will lay up treasure for themselves as a firm foundation for the coming age, so that they may take hold of the life that is truly life.
