Proverbs 3:5

בְּטַ֣ח אֶל־יְ֖הוָה בְּכָל־לִבֶּ֑ךָ וְאֶל־בִּֽ֜ינָתְךָ֗ אַל־תִּשָּׁעֵֽן

ἴσθι πεποιθὼς ἐν ὅλῃ καρδίᾳ ἐπὶ θεῷ ἐπὶ δὲ σῇ σοφίᾳ μὴ ἐπαίρου (LXX)

Habe fiduciam in Domino ex toto corde tuo, et ne innitaris prudentiæ tuæ. (Vulgata Sixto-Clementina)

Have confidence in the Lord with all thy heart, and lean not upon thy own prudence. (Douay-Challoner)

Put all thy heart’s confidence in the Lord, on thy own skill relying never; (Knox)

Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and do not rely on your own insight. (RSV CE)

Trust in the LORD with all your heart, on your own intelligence do not rely. (NAB RE)


D. V. Andrews received the degree of Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing from Saint Mary’s College of California and the degree of Artium Baccalaurei in English Literature from Washington University in St. Louis.  In all humility, he identifies with the one, holy, catholic, and apostolic marks of the Church.  In all pride, he is a fifth-generation Irish immigrant born on the soil of the United States of America.  He wanders through mystery–wondering upon the way of beauty–as poets are made to do.
