Proverbs 3

24 You can go to bed without fear;
  you will lie down and sleep soundly.
25 You need not be afraid of sudden disaster
  or the destruction that comes upon the wicked,
26 for the LORD is your security.
  He will keep your foot from being caught in a trap.

27 Do not withhold good from those who deserve it
  when it's in your power to help them.
28 If you can help your neighbor now, don't say,
  "Come back tomorrow, and then I'll help you."

29 Don't plot harm against your neighbor,
  for those who live nearby trust you.
30 Don't pick a fight without reason,
  when no one has done you harm.

31 Don't envy violent people
  or copy their ways.
32 Such wicked people are detestable to the LORD,
  but he offers his friendship to the godly.

33 The LORD curses the house of the wicked,
  but he blesses the home of the upright.

34 The LORD mocks the mockers
  but is gracious to the humble.*

35 The wise inherit honor,
  but fools are put to shame!

3:34 Greek version reads The LORD opposes the proud / but favors the humble. Compare Jas 4:6; 1 Pet 5:5.

Im thrilled with the NLT second edition. . . .The attention to accuracy while being understandable makes the NLT the perfect choice for all churches called to grow people in Christ and reach people far from God.
