1 Corinthians 14:20

Context
NET ©

Brothers and sisters, 1  do not be children in your thinking. Instead, be infants in evil, but in your thinking be mature.

NIV ©

Brothers, stop thinking like children. In regard to evil be infants, but in your thinking be adults.

NASB ©

Brethren, do not be children in your thinking; yet in evil be infants, but in your thinking be mature.

NLT ©

Dear brothers and sisters, don’t be childish in your understanding of these things. Be innocent as babies when it comes to evil, but be mature and wise in understanding matters of this kind.

MSG ©

To be perfectly frank, I'm getting exasperated with your infantile thinking. How long before you grow up and use your head--your [adult] head? It's all right to have a childlike unfamiliarity with evil; a simple [no] is all that's needed there. But there's far more to saying [yes] to something. Only mature and well-exercised intelligence can save you from falling into gullibility.

BBE ©

My brothers, do not be children in mind: in evil be as little children, but in mind be of full growth.

NRSV ©

Brothers and sisters, do not be children in your thinking; rather, be infants in evil, but in thinking be adults.

NKJV ©

Brethren, do not be children in understanding; however, in malice be babes, but in understanding be mature.
