Proverbs 6


Proverbs 6:1 My son, if you have become surety for your neighbor, Have given a pledge for a stranger,
Proverbs 6:2 If you have been snared with the words of your mouth, Have been caught with the words of your mouth,
Proverbs 6:3 Do this then, my son, and deliver yourself; Since you have come into the hand of your neighbor, Go, humble yourself, and importune your neighbor.
Proverbs 6:4 Give no sleep to your eyes, Nor slumber to your eyelids;
Proverbs 6:5 Deliver yourself like a gazelle from the hunter's hand And like a bird from the hand of the fowler.
Proverbs 6:6 Go to the ant, O sluggard, Observe her ways and be wise,
Proverbs 6:7 Which, having no chief, Officer or ruler,
Proverbs 6:8 Prepares her food in the summer And gathers her provision in the harvest.
Proverbs 6:9 How long will you lie down, O sluggard? When will you arise from your sleep?
Proverbs 6:10 "A little sleep, a little slumber, A little folding of the hands to rest""
Proverbs 6:11 Your poverty will come in like a vagabond And your need like an armed man.
Proverbs 6:12 A worthless person, a wicked man, Is the one who walks with a perverse mouth,
Proverbs 6:13 Who winks with his eyes, who signals with his feet, Who points with his fingers;
Proverbs 6:14 Who with perversity in his heart continually devises evil, Who spreads strife.
Proverbs 6:15 Therefore his calamity will come suddenly; Instantly he will be broken and there will be no healing.
Proverbs 6:16 There are six things which the Lord hates, Yes, seven which are an abomination to Him:
Proverbs 6:17 Haughty eyes, a lying tongue, And hands that shed innocent blood,
Proverbs 6:18 A heart that devises wicked plans, Feet that run rapidly to evil,
Proverbs 6:19 A false witness who utters lies, And one who spreads strife among brothers.
Proverbs 6:20 My son, observe the commandment of your father And do not forsake the teaching of your mother;
Proverbs 6:21 Bind them continually on your heart; Tie them around your neck.
Proverbs 6:22 When you walk about, they will guide you; When you sleep, they will watch over you; And when you awake, they will talk to you.
Proverbs 6:23 For the commandment is a lamp and the teaching is light; And reproofs for discipline are the way of life
Proverbs 6:24 To keep you from the evil woman, From the smooth tongue of the adulteress.
Proverbs 6:25 Do not desire her beauty in your heart, Nor let her capture you with her eyelids.
Proverbs 6:26 For on account of a harlot one is reduced to a loaf of bread, And an adulteress hunts for the precious life.
Proverbs 6:27 Can a man take fire in his bosom And his clothes not be burned?
Proverbs 6:28 Or can a man walk on hot coals And his feet not be scorched?
Proverbs 6:29 So is the one who goes in to his neighbor's wife; Whoever touches her will not go unpunished.
Proverbs 6:30 Men do not despise a thief if he steals To satisfy himself when he is hungry;
Proverbs 6:31 But when he is found, he must repay sevenfold; He must give all the substance of his house.
Proverbs 6:32 The one who commits adultery with a woman is lacking sense; He who would destroy himself does it.
Proverbs 6:33 Wounds and disgrace he will find, And his reproach will not be blotted out.
Proverbs 6:34 For jealousy enrages a man, And he will not spare in the day of vengeance.
Proverbs 6:35 He will not accept any ransom, Nor will he be satisfied though you give many gifts.
