Ecclesiastes 7:18

English Standard Version

18 It is good that you should take hold of this, and from that withhold not your hand, for the one who fears God shall come out from both of them. (Ec 7:16; Ec 7:17; Ec 11:6)

New International Version

18 It is good to grasp the one and not let go of the other. Whoever fears God will avoid all extremes.[1]

New Int. Readers Version

18 It's good to hold on to both of those things. Don't let go of either one. A man who has respect for God will avoid going too far in either direction.

King James Version

18 It is good that thou shouldest take hold of this; yea, also from this withdraw not thine hand: for he that feareth God shall come forth of them all.
