Proverbs 6

6:1 My sonne, if thou bee surety for thy friend, it thou hast stricken thy hand with a stranger, 6:2 Thou art snared with the words of thy mouth, thou art taken with the wordes of thy mouth. 6:3 Doe this now, my sonne, and deliuer thy selfe, when thou art come into the hand of thy friend: goe, humble thy selfe, and make sure thy friend. 6:4 Giue not sleepe to thine eyes, nor slumber to thine eyelids. 6:5 Deliuer thy selfe as a Roe from the hand of the hunter, and as a bird from the hand of the fowler. 6:6 Goe to the Ant, thou sluggard, consider her wayes, and be wise. 6:7 Which hauing no guide, ouerseer, or ruler, 6:8 Prouideth her meat in the Summer, and gathereth her food in the haruest. 6:9 How long wilt thou sleepe, O sluggard when wilt thou arise out of thy sleepe 6:10 Yet a little sleepe, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to sleepe. 6:11 So shall thy pouertie come as one that trauaileth, and thy want as an armed man. 6:12 A naughtie person, a wicked man walketh with a froward mouth. 6:13 He winketh with his eyes, he speaketh with his feete, hee teacheth with his fingers. 6:14 Frowardnesse is in his heart, he deuiseth mischiefe continually, he soweth discord. 6:15 Therefore shall his calamitie come suddenly; suddenly shall hee be broken without remedie. 6:16 These sixe things doeth the Lord hate; yea seuen are an abomination vnto him: 6:17 A proude looke, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood: 6:18 An heart that deuiseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischiefe: 6:19 A false witnesse that speaketh lies; and him that soweth discord among brethren. 6:20 My sonne, keepe thy fathers commandement, and forsake not the law of thy mother. 6:21 Binde them continually vpon thine heart, and tie them about thy necke. 6:22 When thou goest, it shall leade thee; when thou sleepest, it shall keepe thee; and when thou awakest, it shall talke with thee. 6:23 For the Commandement is a lampe, and the Lawe is light: and reproofes of instruction are the way of life: 6:24 To keepe thee from the euill woman, from the flatterie of the tongue of a strange woman. 6:25 Lust not after her beautie in thine heart; neither let her take thee with her eyelids. 6:26 For by meanes of a whorish woman, a man is brought to a piece of bread: and the adulteresse will hunt for the precious life. 6:27 Can a man take fire in his bosome, and his clothes not be burnt 6:28 Can one goe vpon hote coales, and his feete not be burnt 6:29 So he that goeth in to his neighbours wife; whosoeuer toucheth her, shall not be innocent. 6:30 Men doe not despise a thiefe, if he steale to satisfie his soule, when hee is hungry: 6:31 But if he be found, he shall restore seuenfold, he shall giue all the substance of his house. 6:32 But who so committeth adultery with a woman, lacketh vnderstanding: hee that doeth it, destroyeth his owne soule. 6:33 A wound and dishonour shall he get, and his reproch shall not be wiped away. 6:34 For iealousie is the rage of a man: therefore he will not spare in the day of vengeance. 6:35 He will not regard any ransome; neither will hee rest content, though thou giuest many giftes.
