|New Century Version (NCV)
||New International Version (NIV)
11 Words from wise people are like sharp sticks used to guide animals. They are like nails that have been driven in firmly. Altogether they are wise teachings that come from one Shepherd.
11 The words of the wise are like goads, their collected sayings like firmly embedded nails--given by one Shepherd.
