|The Message (MSG)
||New International Version (NIV)
4 Blessed are you who give yourselves over to God, turn your backs on the world's "sure thing," ignore what the world worships;
4 Blessed is the man who makes the LORD his trust, who does not look to the proud, to those who turn aside to false gods.
