    World English Bible

    So you will find favor, and good understanding in the sight of God and man.

    English Revised Version (ERV)

    So shalt thou find favour and good understanding in the sight of God and man.

    Clarke's Commentary on Proverbs 3:4

    So shalt thou find favor - Thou shalt be acceptable to God, and thou shalt enjoy a sense of his approbation.

    And good understanding - Men shall weigh thy character and conduct; and by this appreciate thy motives, and give thee credit for sincerity and uprightness. Though religion is frequently persecuted, and religious people suffer at first where they are not fully known; yet a truly religious and benevolent character will in general be prized wherever it is well known. The envy of men is a proof of the excellence of that which they envy.
