New Living Translation (NLT) New International Version (NIV)
12 But, my child, be warned: There is no end of opinions ready to be expressed. Studying them can go on forever and become very exhausting! 12 Be warned, my son, of anything in addition to them. Of making many books there is no end, and much study wearies the body.
13 Here is my final conclusion: Fear God and obey his commands, for this is the duty of every person. 13 Now all has been heard; here is the conclusion of the matter: Fear God and keep his commandments, for this is the whole [duty] of man.
14 God will judge us for everything we do, including every secret thing, whether good or bad. 14 For God will bring every deed into judgment, including every hidden thing, whether it is good or evil.
