Proverbs 19:1-3 New English Translation (NET Bible)

19 Better is a poor person who walks in his integrity
than one who is perverse in his speech and is a fool.
It is dangerous to have zeal without knowledge,
and the one who acts hastily makes poor choices.
A person’s folly subverts his way,
and his heart rages against the Lord.

Proverbs 19:1-3 New International Version (NIV)

19 Better the poor whose walk is blameless
    than a fool whose lips are perverse.

Desire without knowledge is not good—
    how much more will hasty feet miss the way!

A person’s own folly leads to their ruin,
    yet their heart rages against the Lord.
