NKJV 5 If you would earnestly seek God And make your supplication to the Almighty, NIV 5 But if you will seek God earnestly and plead with the Almighty, NKJV 6 If you were pure and upright, Surely now He would awake for you, And prosper your rightful dwelling place. NIV 6 if you are pure and upright, even now he will rouse himself on your behalf and restore you to your prosperous state.

NKJV 16 He grows green in the sun, And his branches spread out in his garden. NIV 16 They are like a well-watered plant in the sunshine, spreading its shoots over the garden; NKJV 17 His roots wrap around the rock heap, And look for a place in the stones. NIV 17 it entwines its roots around a pile of rocks and looks for a place among the stones. NKJV 18 If he is destroyed from his place, Then it will deny him, saying, 'I have not seen you.'

NIV 22 Your enemies will be clothed in shame, and the tents of the wicked will be no more.”
