Proverbs chapter 5
5:1 | My son, pay attention to my wisdom, listen well to my words of insight,
5:2 | that you may maintain discretion and your lips may preserve knowledge.
5:3 | For the lips of an adulteress drip honey, and her speech is smoother than oil;
5:4 | but in the end she is bitter as gall, sharp as a double-edged sword.
5:5 | Her feet go down to death; her steps lead straight to the grave.
5:6 | She gives no thought to the way of life; her paths are crooked, but she knows it not.
5:7 | Now then, my sons, listen to me; do not turn aside from what I say.
5:8 | Keep to a path far from her, do not go near the door of her house,
5:9 | lest you give your best strength to others and your years to one who is cruel,
5:11 | At the end of your life you will groan, when your flesh and body are spent.
5:12 | You will say, "How I hated discipline! How my heart spurned correction!
5:13 | I would not obey my teachers or listen to my instructors.
5:14 | I have come to the brink of utter ruin in the midst of the whole assembly."
5:15 | Drink water from your own cistern, running water from your own well.
5:16 | Should your springs overflow in the streets, your streams of water in the public squares?
5:17 | Let them be yours alone, never to be shared with strangers.
5:18 | May your fountain be blessed, and may you rejoice in the wife of your youth.
5:19 | A loving doe, a graceful deer- may her breasts satisfy you always, may you ever be captivated by her love.
5:22 | The evil deeds of a wicked man ensnare him; the cords of his sin hold him fast.
5:23 | He will die for lack of discipline, led astray by his own great folly.
