1 H1121 My son, H6148 if you be sure H7453 for your friend, H8628 if you have struck H3709 your hand H2114 with a stranger,
2 H3369 You are snared H561 with the words H6310 of your mouth, H3920 you are taken H561 with the words H6310 of your mouth.
3 H6213 Do H645 this now, H1121 my son, H5337 and deliver H935 yourself, when you are come H3709 into the hand H7453 of your friend; H3212 go, H7511 humble H7292 yourself, and urge H7453 your friend.
5 H5337 Deliver H6643 yourself as a roe H3027 from the hand H6833 of the hunter, and as a bird H3027 from the hand H3353 of the fowler.
8 H3559 Provides H3899 her food H7019 in the summer, H103 and gathers H3978 her food H7105 in the harvest.
9 H7901 How long will you sleep, H6102 O sluggard? H6965 when will you arise H8142 out of your sleep?
10 H4592 Yet a little H8142 sleep, H4592 a little H8572 slumber, H4592 a little H2264 folding H3027 of the hands H7901 to sleep:
11 H7389 So shall your poverty H935 come H1980 as one that travels, H4270 and your want H4043 as a armed H376 man.
12 H1100 A naughty H120 person, H205 a wicked H376 man, H1980 walks H6143 with a perverse H6310 mouth.
13 H7169 He winks H5869 with his eyes, H4448 he speaks H7272 with his feet, H3384 he teaches H676 with his fingers;
14 H8419 Perversity H3820 is in his heart, H2790 he devises H7451 mischief H6256 continually; H7971 he sows H4066 discord.
15 H343 Therefore shall his calamity H935 come H6597 suddenly; H6621 suddenly H7665 shall he be broken H4832 without remedy.
16 H8337 These six H3068 things does the Lord H8130 hate: H7651 Yes, seven H8441 are a abomination H5315 unto him:
17 H7311 A proud H5869 look, H8267 a lying H3956 tongue, H3027 and hands H8210 that shed H5355 innocent H1818 blood,
18 H3820 A heart H2790 that devises H205 wicked H4284 imaginations, H7272 feet H4116 that are swift H7323 in running H7451 to mischief,
19 H8267 A false H5707 witness H6315 that speaks H3577 lies, H7971 and he that sows H4090 discord H251 among brothers.
20 H1121 My son, H5341 keep H1 your father's H4687 commandment, H5203 and forsake H8451 not the law H517 of your mother:
21 H7194 Bind H8548 them continually H3820 upon your heart, H6029 and tie H1621 them about your neck.
22 H1980 When you go, H5148 it shall lead H7901 you; when you sleep, H8104 it shall keep H6974 you; and when you awake, H7878 it shall talk with you.
23 H4687 For the commandment H5216 is a lamp; H8451 and the law H216 is light; H8433 and reproofs H4148 of instruction H1870 are the way H2416 of life:
24 H8104 To keep H7451 you from the evil H802 woman, H2513 from the flattery H3956 of the tongue H5237 of a strange woman.
25 H2530 Lust H3308 not after her beauty H3824 in your heart; H3947 neither let her take H6079 you with her eyelids.
26 H1157 For by means of H2181 a whorish H802 woman H3603 a man is brought to a piece H3899 of bread: H802 and the adulteress H6679 will hunt H3368 for the precious H5315 life.
27 H376 Can a man H2846 take H784 fire H2436 in his bosom, H899 and his clothes H8313 not be burned?
29 H935 So he that goes in H7453 to his neighbors H802 wife; H5060 whoever touches H5352 her shall not be innocent.
30 H936 Men do not despise H1590 a thief, H1589 if he steal H4390 to satisfy H5315 his soul H7456 when he is hungry;
31 H4672 But if he be found, H7999 he shall restore H7659 sevenfold; H5414 he shall give H1952 all the substance H1004 of his house.
32 H5003 But whoever commits adultery H802 with a woman H2638 lacks H3820 understanding: H6213 he that does H7843 it destroys H5315 his own soul.
33 H5061 A wound H7036 and dishonor H4672 shall he get; H2781 and his reproach H4229 shall not be wiped away.
34 H7068 For jealousy H2534 is the rage H1397 of a man: H2550 therefore he will not spare H3117 in the day H5359 of vengeance.
