New International Version (NIV)
because they have a good return for their labor:
one can help the other up.
But pity anyone who falls
and has no one to help them up.
But how can one keep warm alone?
two can defend themselves.
A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.
What is going on, Lord?
I don't want to fall and have no one to pick me up or lift me up from the hard ground.
Unite and restore friendships.
Heal marriages and guide them in their times of prayer.
Call families together, parents, brothers, sisters, grandparents and babies,
Make us that braid that cannot be undone.
In Jesus Name, Amen.
