Proverbs 5


Proverbs 5:1 My son, give attention to my wisdom, Incline your ear to my understanding;
Proverbs 5:2 That you may observe discretion And your lips may reserve knowledge.
Proverbs 5:3 For the lips of an adulteress drip honey And smoother than oil is her speech;
Proverbs 5:4 But in the end she is bitter as wormwood, Sharp as a two-edged sword.
Proverbs 5:5 Her feet go down to death, Her steps take hold of Sheol.
Proverbs 5:6 She does not ponder the path of life; Her ways are unstable, she does not know it.
Proverbs 5:7 Now then, my sons, listen to me And do not depart from the words of my mouth.
Proverbs 5:8 Keep your way far from her And do not go near the door of her house,
Proverbs 5:9 Or you will give your vigor to others And your years to the cruel one;
Proverbs 5:10 And strangers will be filled with your strength And your hard-earned goods will go to the house of an alien;
Proverbs 5:11 And you groan at your final end, When your flesh and your body are consumed;
Proverbs 5:12 And you say," How I have hated instruction! And my heart spurned reproof!
Proverbs 5:13 "I have not listened to the voice of my teachers, Nor inclined my ear to my instructors!
Proverbs 5:14 "I was almost in utter ruin In the midst of the assembly and congregation."
Proverbs 5:15 Drink water from your own cistern And fresh water from your own well.
Proverbs 5:16 Should your springs be dispersed abroad, Streams of water in the streets?
Proverbs 5:17 Let them be yours alone And not for strangers with you.
Proverbs 5:18 Let your fountain be blessed, And rejoice in the wife of your youth.
Proverbs 5:19 As a loving hind and a graceful doe, Let her breasts satisfy you at all times; Be exhilarated always with her love.
Proverbs 5:20 For why should you, my son, be exhilarated with an adulteress And embrace the bosom of a foreigner?
Proverbs 5:21 For the ways of a man are before the eyes of the Lord, And He watches all his paths.
Proverbs 5:22 His own iniquities will capture the wicked, And he will be held with the cords of his sin.
Proverbs 5:23 He will die for lack of instruction, And in the greatness of his folly he will go astray.
