Proverbs 3:5

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, a scribe who has been delivered printed, signed, and sealed papers from a host of schools, is an author with one authority. He is secure about that. He has been a student under a host of other scribes. He has become a master serving in the traditions of a host of unwanted scribes, dead or alive. He remains weak so that he is strong in his unselfish universal identity. He is secure about that, too, like a very narrow minority of schools or scribes.

Here comes everybody.  (Joyce, James. Finnegans Wake.)
