New Living Translation (NLT) New International Version (NIV)
17 He did it so you would never think that it was your own strength and energy that made you wealthy. 17 You may say to yourself, "My power and the strength of my hands have produced this wealth for me."
18 Always remember that it is the LORD your God who gives you power to become rich, and he does it to fulfill the covenant he made with your ancestors. 18 But remember the LORD your God, for it is he who gives you the ability to produce wealth, and so confirms his covenant, which he swore to your forefathers, as it is today.
