Verse of the Week 1/7: Proverbs 3:7-8

NRSV: Do not be wise in your own eyes; fear the Lord, and turn away from evil. It will be a healing for your flesh and a refreshment for your body.

CEB: Don’t consider yourself wise. Fear the Lord and turn away from evil. Then your body will be healthy and your bones strengthened.

The NRSV is the New Revised Standard Version, which is the academic standard for biblical translation. The Common English Bible is a more accessible translation. Both are approved for use during worship in the Episcopal Church.
