Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows.
Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, this he will also reap.
Don’t be misled. Remember that you can’t ignore God and get away with it. You will always reap what you sow!
Don't be misled: No one makes a fool of God. What a person plants, he will harvest. The person who plants selfishness, ignoring the needs of others--ignoring God!--
Be not tricked; God is not made sport of: for whatever seed a man puts in, that will he get back as grain.
Do not be deceived; God is not mocked, for you reap whatever you sow.
Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap.
