New King James Version (NKJV) New International Version (NIV)
18 But the path of the just is like the shining sun, That shines ever brighter unto the perfect day. 18 The path of the righteous is like the first gleam of dawn, shining ever brighter till the full light of day.
19 The way of the wicked is like darkness; They do not know what makes them stumble. 19 But the way of the wicked is like deep darkness; they do not know what makes them stumble.
20 My son, give attention to my words; Incline your ear to my sayings. 20 My son, pay attention to what I say; listen closely to my words.
21 Do not let them depart from your eyes; Keep them in the midst of your heart; 21 Do not let them out of your sight, keep them within your heart;
22 For they are life to those who find them, And health to all their flesh. 22 for they are life to those who find them and health to a man's whole body.
23 Keep your heart with all diligence, For out of it spring the issues of life. 23 Above all else, guard your heart, for it is the wellspring of life.
24 Put away from you a deceitful mouth, And put perverse lips far from you. 24 Put away perversity from your mouth; keep corrupt talk far from your lips.
25 Let your eyes look straight ahead, And your eyelids look right before you. 25 Let your eyes look straight ahead, fix your gaze directly before you.
26 Ponder the path of your feet, And let all your ways be established. 26 Make level paths for your feet and take only ways that are firm.
27 Do not turn to the right or the left; Remove your foot from evil. 27 Do not swerve to the right or the left; keep your foot from evil.
