Proverbs 18-17

The King James (UK) version of Proverbs 18-17 says:   He that is first in his own cause seemeth just; but his neighbour cometh and searcheth him.

The King James (Am.) version says:  He that is first in his own cause seems just; but his neighbor comes and searches him.

The New Living Testament (2007) says:   The first to speak in court sounds right–until the cross-examination begins.
