|New International Version (© 2011)|
Walk with the wise and become wise, for a companion of fools suffers harm.
King James Bible
He that walketh with wise men shall be wise: but a companion of fools shall be destroyed.
American Standard Version
Walk with wise men, and thou shalt be wise; But the companion of fools shall smart for it.
Young's Literal Translation
Whoso is walking with wise men is wise, And a companion of fools suffereth evil.
Proverbs 13:20 Additional TranslationsClarke's Commentary on the Bible
He that walketh with wise men shall be wise - To walk with a person implies love and attachment; and it is impossible not to imitate those we love. So we say, "Show me his company, and I'll tell you the man." Let me know the company he keeps, and I shall easily guess his moral character.
