[1] [2] [3] [4] [5] [6] [7] [8] [9] [10] [11] [12] [13] [14] [15] [16] [17] [18] [19] [20] [21] [22] [23] [24] [25] [26] [27] [28] [29] [30] [31]

PROV 5:1 My son! to my wisdom give attention, To mine understanding incline thine ear,

PROV 5:2 To observe thoughtfulness, And knowledge do thy lips keep.

PROV 5:3 For the lips of a strange woman drop honey, And smoother than oil `is' her mouth,

PROV 5:4 And her latter end `is' bitter as wormwood, Sharp as a sword `with' mouths.

PROV 5:5 Her feet are going down to death, Sheol do her steps take hold of.

PROV 5:6 The path of life -- lest thou ponder, Moved have her paths -- thou knowest not.

PROV 5:7 And now, ye sons, hearken to me, And turn not from sayings of my mouth.

PROV 5:8 Keep far from off her thy way, And come not near unto the opening of her house,

PROV 5:9 Lest thou give to others thy honour, And thy years to the fierce,

PROV 5:10 Lest strangers be filled `with' thy power, And thy labours in the house of a stranger,

PROV 5:11 And thou hast howled in thy latter end, In the consumption of thy flesh and thy food,

PROV 5:12 And hast said, `How have I hated instruction, And reproof hath my heart despised,

PROV 5:13 And I have not hearkened to the voice of my directors, And to my teachers have not inclined mine ear.

PROV 5:14 As a little thing I have been all evil, In the midst of an assembly and a company.

PROV 5:15 Drink waters out of thine own cistern, Even flowing ones out of thine own well.

PROV 5:16 Let thy fountains be scattered abroad, In broad places rivulets of waters.

PROV 5:17 Let them be to thee for thyself, And not to strangers with thee.

PROV 5:18 Let thy fountain be blessed, And rejoice because of the wife of thy youth,

PROV 5:19 A hind of loves, and a roe of grace! Let her loves satisfy thee at all times, In her love magnify thyself continually.

PROV 5:20 And why dost thou magnify thyself, My son, with a stranger? And embrace the bosom of a strange woman?

PROV 5:21 For over-against the eyes of Jehovah are the ways of each, And all his paths He is pondering.

PROV 5:22 His own iniquities do capture the wicked, And with the ropes of his sin he is holden.

PROV 5:23 He dieth without instruction, And in the abundance of his folly magnifieth himself!
