Proverbs chapter 5
5:1 | My son, pay attention to my wisdom; Lend your ear to my understanding,
5:2 | That you may preserve discretion, And your lips may keep knowledge.
5:3 | For the lips of an immoral woman drip honey, And her mouth 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 lay hold of hell.
5:6 | Lest you ponder her path of life--Her ways are unstable; You do not know them.
5:7 | Therefore hear me now, my children, And do not depart from the words of my mouth.
5:8 | Remove 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 cruel one;
5:10 | Lest aliens be filled with your wealth, And your labors go to the house of a foreigner;
5:11 | And you mourn at last, When your flesh and your body are consumed,
5:12 | And say: "How I have hated instruction, And my heart despised correction!
5:13 | I have not obeyed the voice of my teachers, Nor inclined my ear to those who instructed me!
5:14 | I was on the verge of total ruin, In the midst of the assembly and congregation."
5:15 | Drink water from your own cistern, And running water from your own well.
5:16 | Should your fountains be dispersed abroad, Streams of water in the streets?
5:17 | Let them be only your own, And not for strangers with you.
5:18 | Let your fountain be blessed, And rejoice with the wife of your youth.
5:19 | As a loving deer and a graceful doe, Let her breasts satisfy you at all times; And always be enraptured with her love.
5:20 | For why should you, my son, be enraptured by an immoral woman, And be embraced in the arms of a seductress?
5:21 | For the ways of man are before the eyes of the LORD, And He ponders all his paths.
5:22 | His own iniquities entrap the wicked man, And he is caught in the cords of his sin.
5:23 | He shall die for lack of instruction, And in the greatness of his folly he shall go astray.
