Proverbs chapter 5
5:1 | My son, give attention to my wisdom, Incline your ear to my understanding;
5:2 | That you may observe discretion And your lips may reserve knowledge.
5:3 | For the lips of an adulteress drip honey And smoother than oil is her speech;
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 take hold of Sheol.
5:6 | She does not ponder the path of life; Her ways are unstable, she does not know it.
5:7 | Now then, my 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 | Or you will give your vigor to others And your years to the cruel one;
5:10 | And strangers will be filled with your strength And your hard-earned goods will go to the house of an alien;
5:11 | And you groan at your final end, When your flesh and your body are consumed;
5:12 | And you say, "How I have hated instruction! And my heart spurned reproof!
5:13 | "I have not listened to the voice of my teachers, Nor inclined my ear to my instructors!
5:14 | "I was almost in utter ruin In the midst of the assembly and congregation."
5:15 | Drink water from your own cistern And fresh water from your own well.
5:16 | Should your springs be dispersed abroad, Streams of water in the streets?
5:17 | Let them be yours alone And not for strangers with you.
5:18 | Let your fountain be blessed, And rejoice in the wife of your youth.
5:19 | As a loving hind and a graceful doe, Let her breasts satisfy you at all times; Be exhilarated always with her love.
5:20 | For why should you, my son, be exhilarated with an adulteress And embrace the bosom of a foreigner?
5:21 | For the ways of a man are before the eyes of the LORD, And He watches all his paths.
5:22 | His own iniquities will capture the wicked, And he will be held with the cords of his sin.
5:23 | He will die for lack of instruction, And in the greatness of his folly he will go astray.
