Proverbs 22:5-7 Douay-Rheims 1899 American Edition (DRA)

Arms and swords are in the way of the perverse: but he that keepeth his own soul departeth far from them.

It is a proverb: A young man according to his way, even when he is old he will not depart from it.

The rich ruleth over the poor: and the borrower is servant to him that lendeth.

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.
