Parallel Verses
New American Standard Bible
It is good that you grasp one thing and also not let go of the other; for the one who fears God comes forth with both of them.

King James Bible
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.

Holman Christian Standard Bible
It is good that you grasp the one and do not let the other slip from your hand. For the one who fears God will end up with both of them.
