Proverbs 22:5-7 Darby Translation (DARBY)

Thorns [and] snares are in the way of the perverse: he that keepeth his soul holdeth himself far from them.

Train up the child according to the tenor of his way, and when he is old he will not depart from it.

The rich ruleth over the poor; and the borrower is servant to the lender.

Proverbs 22:5-7 New International Version (NIV)

In the paths of the wicked are snares and pitfalls,
    but those who would preserve their life stay far from them.

Start children off on the way they should go,
    and even when they are old they will not turn from it.

The rich rule over the poor,
    and the borrower is slave to the lender.
