Proverbs 5

5:1 My sonne, attend vnto my wisedome, and bowe thine eare to my vnderstanding. 5:2 That thou mayest regard discretion, and that thy lips may keepe knowledge. 5:3 For the lips of a strange woman drop as an hony combe, and her mouth is smoother then oyle. 5:4 But her end is bitter as wormewood, sharpe as a two edged sword. 5:5 Her feete goe downe to death: her steps take hold on hell. 5:6 Lest thou shouldest ponder the path of life, her wayes are moueable, that thou canst not know them. 5:7 Heare me now therefore, O yee children: & depart not from the words of my mouth. 5:8 Remoue thy way farre from her, and come not nie the doore of her house: 5:9 Lest thou giue thine honour vnto others, and thy yeeres vnto the cruell: 5:10 Lest strangers be filled with thy wealth, and thy labors be in the house of a stranger, 5:11 And thou mourne at the last, when thy flesh and thy body are consumed, 5:12 And say, How haue I hated instruction, and my heart despised reproofe 5:13 And haue not obeyed the voyce of my teachers, nor inclined mine eare to them that instructed me 5:14 I was almost in all euill, in the midst of the congregation & assembly. 5:15 Drinke waters out of thine owne cisterne, and running waters out of thine owne well. 5:16 Let thy fountaines bee dispersed abroad, and riuers of waters in the streets. 5:17 Let them be onely thine owne, and not strangers with thee. 5:18 Let thy fountaine be blessed: and reioyce with the wife of thy youth. 5:19 Let her bee as the louing Hinde and pleasant Roe, let her breasts satisfie thee at all times, and be thou rauisht alwayes with her loue. 5:20 And why wilt thou, my sonne, be rauisht with a strange woman, and imbrace the bosome of a stranger 5:21 For the wayes of man are before the eyes of the Lord, and he pondereth all his goings. 5:22 His owne iniquities shall take the wicked himselfe, and he shall be holden with the coards of his sinnes. 5:23 He shall die without instruction, and in the greatnesse of his folly he shal goe astray.
