ruby ruby ​​update ruby ​​on OSX

I was having some trouble running some Ruby scripts. While trying to get these scripts to run I tried lots of different things as well as updating rubygems as I thought this may be the problem. Since then I can't get any Ruby scripts to run.

I think that if I can revert rubygems back to it's original version I may be able to run Ruby scripts again, but I don't know how.

    $ gem environment
  RubyGems Environment:
  - RUBYGEMS VERSION: 1.3.5
  - RUBY VERSION: 1.8.7 (2009-06-12 patchlevel 174) [universal-darwin10.0]

    $ ruby -v

    $ which -a ruby

    $ which -a gem

Thank you for any help in advance.

It seems that you have multiple versions of ruby(and gem) installed. It is advised to use rvm when maintaining multiple ruby versions. Or clean up your wrong/old/unneeded installations.
