Where there is no vision, people perish; but he that keepeth the law, happy is he. Proverbs 29:18 KJV
The NIV says where there is no revelation, the people cast off restraint. The NLT says when people do not accept divine guidance, they run wild. But whoever obeys the law is joyful. The Message Bible says, if people can’t see what God is doing, they stumble all over themselves; but when they attend to what He reveals, they are most blessed.
