Rescue those being led away to death; hold back those staggering toward slaughter.
King James Bible
If thou forbear to deliver them that are drawn unto death, and those that are ready to be slain;
American Standard Version
Deliver them that are carried away unto death, And those that are ready to be slain see that thou hold back.
Young's Literal Translation
If from delivering those taken to death, And those slipping to the slaughter -- thou keepest back.
Proverbs 24:11 Additional TranslationsClarke's Commentary on the Bible
If thou forbear to deliver - If thou seest the innocent taken by the hand of lawless power or superstitious zeal, and they are about to be put to death, thou shouldst rise up in their behalf, boldly plead for them, testify to their innocence when thou knowest it; and thus thou wilt not be guilty of blood; which thou wouldst be, if, through any pretense, thou shouldst neglect to save the life of a man unjustly condemned.
