New American Standard Bible
He who walks blamelessly will be delivered, But he who is crooked will fall all at once.
King James Bible
Whoso walketh uprightly shall be saved: but he that is perverse in his ways shall fall at once.
Darby Bible Translation
Whoso walketh in integrity shall be saved; but he that is perverted in his double ways, shall fall in one of them.
World English Bible
Whoever walks blamelessly is kept safe; but one with perverse ways will fall suddenly.
Young's Literal Translation
Whoso is walking uprightly is saved, And the perverted of ways falleth at once.
Proverbs 28:18 Parallel
CommentaryBarnes' Notes on the Bible
In his ways - Rather "in his double ways" (as in Proverbs 28:6). The evil of vacillation rather than that of craft, the want of the one guiding principle of right, is contrasted with the straightforwardness of the man that "walketh uprightly."
Shall fall at once - Better, shall fall in one of them (his ways). The attempt to combine incompatibilities is sure to fail. Men cannot serve God and Mammon.
"He that covereth his sins shall not prosper: but whoso confesseth and forsaketh them shall have mercy." Proverbs 28:13. The conditions of obtaining mercy of God are simple and just and reasonable. The Lord does not require us to do some grievous thing in order that we may have the forgiveness of sin. We need not make long and wearisome pilgrimages, or perform painful penances, to commend our souls to the God of heaven or to expiate our transgression; but he that confesseth and forsaketh his sin …
Ellen Gould White—Steps to Christ
He who walks in integrity walks securely, But he who perverts his ways will be found out.
The fear of the LORD prolongs life, But the years of the wicked will be shortened.
