|The Message (MSG)
||New International Version (NIV)
4 Make a careful exploration of who you are and the work you have been given, and then sink yourself into that. Don't be impressed with yourself. Don't compare yourself with others.
4 Each one should test his own actions. Then he can take pride in himself, without comparing himself to somebody else,
