Proverbs chapter 5
5:1 | My son, be attentive to my wisdom; incline your ear to my understanding,
5:2 | that you may keep discretion, and your lips may guard knowledge.
5:3 | For the lips of a forbidden woman drip honey, and her speech is smoother than oil,
5:4 | but in the end she is bitter as wormwood, sharp as a two-edged sword.
5:5 | Her feet go down to death; her steps follow the path to Sheol;
5:6 | she does not ponder the path of life; her ways wander, and she does not know it.
5:7 | And now, O sons, listen to me, and do not depart from the words of my mouth.
5:8 | Keep your way far from her, and do not go near the door of her house,
5:9 | lest you give your honor to others and your years to the merciless,
5:10 | lest strangers take their fill of your strength, and your labors go to the house of a foreigner,
5:11 | and at the end of your life you groan, when your flesh and body are consumed,
5:12 | and you say, "How I hated discipline, and my heart despised reproof!
5:13 | I did not listen to the voice of my teachers or incline my ear to my instructors.
5:14 | I am at the brink of utter ruin in the assembled congregation."
5:15 | Drink water from your own cistern, flowing water from your own well.
5:16 | Should your springs be scattered abroad, streams of water in the streets?
5:17 | Let them be for yourself alone, and not for strangers with you.
5:18 | Let your fountain be blessed, and rejoice in the wife of your youth,
5:19 | a lovely deer, a graceful doe. Let her breasts fill you at all times with delight; be intoxicated always in her love.
5:20 | Why should you be intoxicated, my son, with a forbidden woman and embrace the bosom of an adulteress?
5:22 | The iniquities of the wicked ensnare him, and he is held fast in the cords of his sin.
5:23 | He dies for lack of discipline, and because of his great folly he is led astray.
