But be sure you live out the message and do not merely listen to it and so deceive yourselves.
Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says.
But prove yourselves doers of the word, and not merely hearers who delude themselves.
And remember, it is a message to obey, not just to listen to. If you don’t obey, you are only fooling yourself.
Don't fool yourself into thinking that you are a listener when you are anything but, letting the Word go in one ear and out the other. Act on what you hear!
But be doers of the word, and not only hearers of it, blinding yourselves with false ideas.
But be doers of the word, and not merely hearers who deceive themselves.
But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves.
