Proverbs 13:18-21 BBE
(18) Need and shame will be the fate of him who is uncontrolled by training; but he who takes note of teaching will be honoured. (19) To get one's desire is sweet to the soul, but to give up evil is disgusting to the foolish. (20) Go with wise men and be wise: but he who keeps company with the foolish will be broken. (21) Evil will overtake sinners, but the upright will be rewarded with good.

Proverbs 13:18-21 NWT
18 The one neglecting discipline [comes to] poverty and dishonor, but the one keeping a reproof is the one that is glorified. 19 Desire when realized is pleasurable to the soul; but it is something detestable to the stupid ones to turn away from bad. 20 He that is walking with wise persons will become wise, but he that is having dealings with the stupid ones will fare badly. 21 Sinners are the ones whom calamity pursues, but the righteous are the ones whom good rewards.

Proverbs 13:18-21 LITV
(18) Poverty and shame shall be to him who refuses instruction, but he who keeps to correction shall be honored. (19) The desire coming to pass is sweet to the soul, but to depart from evil is hateful to fools. (20) He who walks with the wise shall be wise, but one associating with fools shall be broken. (21) Evil pursues sinners, but the righteous shall be rewarded with good.

Proverbs 13:18-21 CEV
(18) All who refuse correction will be poor and disgraced; all who accept correction will be praised. (19) It's a good feeling to get what you want, but only a stupid fool hates to turn from evil. (20) Wise friends make you wise, but you hurt yourself by going around with fools. (21) You are in for trouble if you sin, but you will be rewarded if you live right.
