1 H3588 When H3427 you sit H3898 to eat H4910 with a ruler, H995 consider H853 diligently what H834 H6440 is before you:
2 H7760 And put H7915 a knife H3930 to your throat, H518 if H1167 you be a man H1167 given H5315 to appetite.
5 H5774 Will you set H5869 your eyes H6213 on that which is not? for riches certainly make H3671 themselves wings; H5774 they fly H5404 away as an eagle H8064 toward heaven.
6 H3898 Eat H3899 you not the bread H7451 of him that has an evil H5869 eye, H408 neither H183 desire H4303 you his dainty meats:
7 H8176 For as he thinks H5315 in his heart, H3651 so H398 is he: Eat H8354 and drink, H559 said H3820 he to you; but his heart is not with you.
8 H6595 The morsel H398 which you have eaten H6958 shall you vomit H7843 up, and lose H5273 your sweet H1697 words.
9 H1696 Speak H241 not in the ears H3684 of a fool: H936 for he will despise H7922 the wisdom H4405 of your words.
10 H5253 Remove H5769 not the old H1366 landmark; H935 and enter H7704 not into the fields H3490 of the fatherless:
12 H935 Apply H3820 your heart H4148 to instruction, H241 and your ears H561 to the words H1847 of knowledge.
13 H4513 Withhold H4148 not correction H5288 from the child: H5221 for if you beat H7626 him with the rod, H4191 he shall not die.
14 H5221 You shall beat H7626 him with the rod, H5337 and shall deliver H5315 his soul H7585 from hell.
15 H1121 My son, H518 if H3820 your heart H2449 be wise, H3820 my heart H8055 shall rejoice, H1571 even H589 mine.
17 H3820 Let not your heart H7065 envy H2400 sinners: H3374 but be you in the fear H3068 of the LORD H3605 all H3117 the day long.
19 H8085 Hear H1121 you, my son, H2449 and be wise, H833 and guide H3820 your heart H1870 in the way.
21 H5435 For the drunkard H2151 and the glutton H3423 shall come to poverty: H5124 and drowsiness H3847 shall clothe H7168 a man with rags.
22 H8085 Listen H1 to your father H3205 that begat H936 you, and despise H517 not your mother H3588 when H2204 she is old.
23 H7069 Buy H571 the truth, H4376 and sell H2451 it not; also wisdom, H4148 and instruction, H998 and understanding.
24 H1 The father H6662 of the righteous H1523 shall greatly rejoice: H3205 and he that begets H2450 a wise H8056 child shall have joy of him.
25 H1 Your father H517 and your mother H8056 shall be glad, H3205 and she that bore H1523 you shall rejoice.
26 H1121 My son, H5414 give H3820 me your heart, H5869 and let your eyes H5341 observe H1870 my ways.
27 H2181 For a whore H6013 is a deep H7745 ditch; H5237 and a strange H6862 woman is a narrow H875 pit.
28 H637 She also H693 lies in wait H2863 as for a prey, H3254 and increases H898 the transgressors H120 among men.
29 H4310 Who H188 has woe? H4310 who H17 has sorrow? H4310 who H4079 has contentions? H4310 who H7879 has babbling? H4310 who H6482 has wounds H2600 without H2600 cause? H4310 who H2448 has redness H5869 of eyes?
30 H309 They that tarry H5921 long at H3196 the wine; H935 they that go H2713 to seek H4469 mixed H4469 wine.
31 H7200 Look H3196 not you on the wine H3588 when H119 it is red, H3588 when H5414 it gives H5869 his color H3599 in the cup, H1980 when it moves H4339 itself aright.
33 H5869 Your eyes H7200 shall behold H2114 strange H3820 women, and your heart H1696 shall utter H8419 perverse things.
34 H7901 Yes, you shall be as he that lies H7901 down H3820 in the middle H3220 of the sea, H7901 or as he that lies H7218 on the top H2260 of a mast.
