Proverbs 23

  1 G1437 If G2523 you should sit G1172 to have supper G1909 at G5132 the table G1413 of a monarch, G3540.2 intelligibly G3539 comprehend G3588 the things G3908 being placed near G1473 you!
  2 G2532 And G1911 give attention G3588 to G5495 your hand! G1473   G1492 beholding G3754 that G5108 [4for such things G1473 2for you G1163 1 it is a must G3903 3to make preparations]; G1487 but if G1161   G571.2 you are insatiable, G1510.2.2  
  3 G3361 do not G1937 desire G3588   G1475.1 his food; G1473   G3778 for these G1063   G2192 have G2222 [2life G5571 1a false].
  4 G3361 Do not G3923.1 reach forth, G3993 [2needy G1510.6 1being], G4145 to the rich! G3588   G1161 but G4674 in your G1771 insight G566 be at a distance!
  5 G1437 If G2186 you set G3588   G4674 your G3659 eye G4314 upon G1473 him, G3759.1 he shall not at all G5316 appear; G2680 for there are carefully prepared G1063   G1473 for him G4420 wings G5618 as of G105 an eagle, G2532 and G5290 he returns G1519 to G3588 the G3624 house G3588   G4291 being set G1473 for him.
  6 G3361 Do not G4885.2 dine with G435 [2man G940.1 1a bewitching], G3366 nor G1937 desire G3588   G1033 his foods; G1473  
  7 G3739 [2in which G5158 3manner G1063 1for] G1536 as if any G2666 may swallow down G2359 a hair, G3779 thus G2068 he eats G2532 and G4095 drinks; G3366 nor G4314 [3to G1473 4yourself G1521 1should you bring G1473 2him], G2532 nor G2068 you should eat G3588   G5596.1 your morsel G1473   G3326 with G1473 him,
  8 G1828.1 for he will vomit G1161   G1473 it, G2532 and G3075 lay waste G3588   G3056 [3words G1473 1your G3588   G2570 2good].
  9 G1519 [3into G3775 4 the ears G878 5of a fool G3367 1Do not G3004 2speak]! G3379 lest at any time G3456 he sneer at G3588   G4908 discerning G1473 your G3056 words.
  10 G3361 You should not G3346 transpose G3725 [2boundaries G166 1 the everlasting]; G1519 and to G1161   G2933 the possession G3737 of orphans G3361 you should not G1525 enter to take;
  11 G3588 for the G1063   G3084 one ransoming G1473 them G2962 is the lord; G2900 he is strong, G1510.2.3   G2532 and G2919 he arbitrates G3588   G2920 their case G1473   G3326 with G1473 you.
  12 G1325 Give G1519 [3for G3809 4instruction G3588   G2588 2heart G1473 1your]! G3588   G1161 and G3775 [2your ears G1473   G2090 1prepare] G3056 for words G144 of good sense!
  13 G3361 You should not G566 be at a distance G3516 [2 the simple G3811 1to correct]; G3754 for G1437 if G3960 you strike G1473 him G4464 with a rod G3766.2 in no way G599 should he die.
  14 G1473 Forasmuch as you G3303   G1063   G3960 struck G1473 him G4464 with a rod, G3588   G1161 then G5590 [2his soul G1473   G1537 3from G2288 4death G4506 1you rescued].
  15 G5207 O son, G1437 if G4680 [4wise G1096 1you should make G1473 2your G3588   G2588 3heart], G2165 you shall gladden G2532 also G3588   G1699 my G2588 heart;
  16 G2532 and G1736.2 [4shall spend time G3056 1 the words G3588   G4674 2of your G5491 3lips] G4314 with G3588   G1699 my G5491 lips, G1437 if G3717 they should be straight. G1510.3  
  17 G3361 Let not G2206 [2be jealous G3588   G2588 1your heart] G1473   G268 of sinners, G235 but G1722 [2in G5401 3 the fear G2962 4 of the lord G1510.5 1be] G3650 the whole G3588   G2250 day!
  18 G1437 For if G1063   G5083 you should give heed to G1473 these things G1510.8.3 there will be G1473 a progeny for you, G1549   G3588   G1161 and G1680 your hope G1473   G3756 will not G868 leave.
  19 G191 Hear, G5207 O son, G2532 and G4680 [2wise G1096 1be], G2532 and G2720 straighten out G1771 the reflections G4674 of your G2588 heart!
  20 G3361 Do not be G1510.5   G3630 a winebibber, G3366 nor G1614 stretch out G4822.4 couplings, G2907 [3of meats G5037 1nor G60.1 2purchasings]!
  21 G3956 For every G1063   G3183 intoxicated one G2532 and G4204.2 whoremonger G4433 shall be poor; G2532 and G1746 [3shall put on G1284 4torn G2532 5and G4470.1 6ragged garments G3956 1every G5258.2 2sleepy one].
  22 G191 Hear, G5207 O son, G3962 the father G3588   G1080 engendering G1473 you, G2532 and G3361 do not G2706 disdain G3754 that G1095 [3has grown old G1473 1your G3588   G3384 2mother]!
  23 G225 [2truth G2932 1Acquire]! G2532 and G3361 you should not thrust away G683   G4678 wisdom G2532 and G3809 instruction G2532 and G4907 understanding.
  24 G2573 [4well G1625 3nourishes G3962 2father G1342 1A just]; G1909 [4by G1161 1and G5207 6son G4680 5a wise G2165 3is gladdened G3588   G5590 2his soul]. G1473  
  25 G2165 Let your [4be glad G3588   G3962 1father G2532 2and G3588   G3384 3mother] G1909 over G1473 you, G2532 and G5463 let [4rejoice G3588 1the G5088 2one who gave birth to G1473 3you]!
  26 G1325 Give G1473 to me, G5207 O son, G4674 your G2588 heart, G3588   G1161 and G4674 let your G3788 eyes G1699 [2my G3598 3ways G5083 1give heed to]!
  27 G4086.2 [5a cask G1063 1For G5069.2 6having been drilled G1510.2.3 4is G245 2a strange G3624 3house]; G2532 and G5421 [2well G4728 3is narrow G245 1a strange].
  28 G3778 For this one G1063   G4935 suddenly G622 shall perish, G2532 and G3956 every G3892.1 lawbreaker G355 shall be consumed.
  29 G5100 To whom G3759 is there woe? G5100 to whom G2351 a tumult? G5100 to whom G2920 litigations? G5100 to whom G108.1 rancor G2532 and G3016.3 intrigue? G5100 to whom G4938 breaks G1246.1 without cause? G5100 to whom G3990.2 dark colored G3588   G3788 eyes?
  30 G3756 is it not G3588 the G1472.1 ones lingering G1722 in G3631 wines? G3756 is it not G3588 the ones G2486.1 prowling G4226 where G4224 parties G1096 happen? G3361 Do not G3182 be intoxicated G3631 by wine, G235 but G3656 consort G444 [2men G1342 1with just], G2532 and G3656 consort G1722 in G4043.1 the promenades!
  31 G1437 For if G1063   G1519 in G3588 the G5357 bowls G2532 and G3588 the G4221 cups G1325 you should give G3588   G3788 your eyes, G1473   G5305 afterwards G4043 you shall walk G1131 more naked than G5246.3 a pestle.
  32 G3588   G1161 But G2078 at last G5618 it will be as if G5259 [2by G3789 3a serpent G4141 1being struck] G1614 he stretches out, G2532 and G5618 as if G5259 by G2768.2 a horned serpent G1315.1 [3diffuses G1473 4throughout him G3588 1the G2447 2poison].
  33 G3588   G3788 [3eyes G1473 2your G3752 1Whenever] G1492 behold G245 the strange woman, G3588   G4750 your mouth G1473   G5119 then G2980 speaks G4646 perverse things;
  34 G2532 and G2621 you shall recline G5618 as if G1722 in G2588 the heart G2281 of the sea; G2532 and G5618 as G2942 a navigator G1722 in G4183 a great G2830 swell;
  35 G2046 and you shall say, G1161   G5180 They beat G1473 me, G2532 and G3756 I did not have G4188.1 pain; G2532 and, G1702 They mocked G1473 me, G1473 but I G1161   G3756 did not G1492 know. G4219 When G3722 will it be dawn G1510.8.3   G2443 that G2064 coming G2212 I shall seek G3326 after G3739 one who G4905 shall go together with me to drink ?
