Proverbs Chapter 6

, - ; . 1 My son, if thou art become surety for thy neighbour, if thou hast struck thy hands for a stranger--
-; , -. 2 Thou art snared by the words of thy mouth, thou art caught by the words of thy mouth--
, -- -;
, .
3 Do this now, my son, and deliver thyself, seeing thou art come into the hand of thy neighbour; {N}
go, humble thyself, and urge thy neighbour.
- ; , . 4 Give not sleep to thine eyes, nor slumber to thine eyelids.
, ; , . 5 Deliver thyself as a gazelle from the hand [of the hunter], and as a bird from the hand of the fowler. {P}
-- ; . 6 Go to the ant, thou sluggard; consider her ways, and be wise;
- -- . 7 Which having no chief, overseer, or ruler,
; , . 8 Provideth her bread in the summer, and gatherest her food in the harvest.
- ; , . 9 How long wilt thou sleep, O sluggard? When wilt thou arise out of thy sleep?
, ; , . 10 'Yet a little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to sleep'--
- ; , . 11 So shall thy poverty come as a runner, and thy want as an armed man. {P}
, ; , . 12 A base person, a man of iniquity, is he that walketh with a froward mouth;
, ; , . 13 That winketh with his eyes, that scrapeth with his feet, that pointeth with his fingers;
, -- -; () . 14 Frowardness is in his heart, he deviseth evil continually; he soweth discord.
---, ; , . 15 Therefore shall his calamity come suddenly; on a sudden shall he be broken, and that without remedy. {P}
-, ; , () . 16 There are six things which the LORD hateth, yea, seven which are an abomination unto Him:
, ; , -. 17 Haughty eyes, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood;
--, ; , . 18 A heart that deviseth wicked thoughts, feet that are swift in running to evil;
, ; , . 19 A false witness that breatheth out lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren. {P}
, ; -, . 20 My son, keep the commandment of thy father, and forsake not the teaching of thy mother;
- ; , -. 21 Bind them continually upon thy heart, tie them about thy neck.
, -- , ;
, .
22 When thou walkest, it shall lead thee, when thou liest down, it shall watch over thee; and when thou awakest, it shall talk with thee.
, ; , . 23 For the commandment is a lamp, and the teaching is light, and reproofs of instruction are the way of life;
, ; , . 24 To keep thee from the evil woman, from the smoothness of the alien tongue.
- , ; -, . 25 Lust not after her beauty in thy heart; neither let her captivate thee with her eyelids.
- , --:
-- .
26 For on account of a harlot a man is brought to a loaf of bread, but the adulteress hunteth for the precious life. {P}
; , . 27 Can a man take fire in his bosom, and his clothes not be burned?
- , -; , . 28 Or can one walk upon hot coals, and his feet not be scorched?
--, - : -, - . 29 So he that goeth in to his neighbour's wife; whosoever toucheth her shall not go unpunished.
- , -- , . 30 Men do not despise a thief, if he steal to satisfy his soul when he is hungry;
, : -- . 31 But if he be found, he must restore sevenfold, he must give all the substance of his house.
-; , . 32 He that committeth adultery with a woman lacketh understanding; he doeth it that would destroy his own soul.
- ; , . 33 Wounds and dishonour shall he get, and his reproach shall not be wiped away.
- -; -, . 34 For jealousy is the rage of a man, and he will not spare in the day of vengeance.
-, -; -, -. 35 He will not regard any ransom; neither will he rest content, though thou givest many gifts. {P}
