1 H1121 My son H6148 , if thou be surety [H8804] H7453 for thy friend H8628 , if thou hast stricken [H8804] H3709 thy hand H2114 with a stranger [H8801] ,
2 H3369 Thou art snared [H8738] H561 with the words H6310 of thy mouth H3920 , thou art taken [H8738] H561 with the words H6310 of thy mouth.
3 H6213 Do [H8798] H645 this now H1121 , my son H5337 , and deliver [H8734] H935 thyself, when thou art come [H8804] H3709 into the hand H7453 of thy friend H3212 ; go [H8798] H7511 , humble [H8690] H7292 thyself, and make sure [H8798] H7453 thy friend.
4 H5414 Give [H8799] H8142 not sleep H5869 to thine eyes H8572 , nor slumber H6079 to thine eyelids.
5 H5337 Deliver [H8734] H6643 thyself as a roe H3027 from the hand H6833 of the hunter, and as a bird H3027 from the hand H3353 of the fowler.
6 H3212 Go [H8798] H5244 to the ant H6102 , thou sluggard H7200 ; consider [H8798] H1870 her ways H2449 , and be wise [H8798] :
8 H3559 Provideth [H8686] H3899 her meat H7019 in the summer H103 , and gathereth [H8804] H3978 her food H7105 in the harvest.
9 H7901 How long wilt thou sleep [H8799] H6102 , O sluggard H6965 ? when wilt thou arise [H8799] H8142 out of thy 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 [H8800] :
11 H7389 So shall thy poverty H935 come [H8804] H1980 as one that travelleth [H8764] H4270 , and thy want H4043 as an armed H376 man.
12 H1100 A naughty H120 person H205 , a wicked H376 man H1980 , walketh [H8802] H6143 with a froward H6310 mouth.
13 H7169 He winketh [H8802] H5869 with his eyes H4448 , he speaketh [H8802] H7272 with his feet H3384 , he teacheth [H8688] H676 with his fingers;
14 H8419 Frowardness H3820 is in his heart H2790 , he deviseth [H8802] H7451 mischief H6256 continually H7971 ; he soweth [H8762] H4066 discord [H8675] H4090 .
15 H343 Therefore shall his calamity H935 come [H8799] H6597 suddenly H6621 ; suddenly H7665 shall he be broken [H8735] H4832 without remedy.
16 H8337 These six H3068 things doth the LORD H8130 hate [H8804] H7651 : yea, seven H8441 are an abomination H5315 unto him:
17 H7311 A proud [H8802] H5869 look H8267 , a lying H3956 tongue H3027 , and hands H8210 that shed [H8802] H5355 innocent H1818 blood,
18 H3820 An heart H2790 that deviseth [H8802] H205 wicked H4284 imaginations H7272 , feet H4116 that be swift [H8764] H7323 in running [H8800] H7451 to mischief,
19 H8267 A false H5707 witness H6315 that speaketh [H8686] H3577 lies H7971 , and he that soweth [H8764] H4090 discord H251 among brethren.
20 H1121 My son H5341 , keep [H8798] H1 thy father's H4687 commandment H5203 , and forsake [H8799] H8451 not the law H517 of thy mother:
21 H7194 Bind [H8798] H8548 them continually H3820 upon thine heart H6029 , and tie [H8798] H1621 them about thy neck.
22 H1980 When thou goest [H8692] H5148 , it shall lead [H8686] H7901 thee; when thou sleepest [H8800] H8104 , it shall keep [H8799] H6974 thee; and when thou awakest [H8689] H7878 , it shall talk [H8799] with thee.
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 [H8800] H7451 thee from the evil H802 woman H2513 , from the flattery H3956 of the tongue H5237 of a strange woman.
25 H2530 Lust [H8799] H3308 not after her beauty H3824 in thine heart H3947 ; neither let her take [H8799] H6079 thee with her eyelids.
26 H1157 For by means of H2181 a whorish [H8802] H802 woman H3603 a man is brought to a piece H3899 of bread H802 : and the adulteress H376 H6679 will hunt [H8799] H3368 for the precious H5315 life.
27 H376 Can a man H2846 take [H8799] H784 fire H2436 in his bosom H899 , and his clothes H8313 not be burned [H8735] ?
28 H376 Can one H1980 go [H8762] H1513 upon hot coals H7272 , and his feet H3554 not be burned [H8735] ?
29 H935 So he that goeth in [H8802] H7453 to his neighbour's H802 wife H5060 ; whosoever toucheth [H8802] H5352 her shall not be innocent [H8735] .
30 H936 Men do not despise [H8799] H1590 a thief H1589 , if he steal [H8799] H4390 to satisfy [H8763] H5315 his soul H7456 when he is hungry [H8799] ;
31 H4672 But if he be found [H8738] H7999 , he shall restore [H8762] H7659 sevenfold H5414 ; he shall give [H8799] H1952 all the substance H1004 of his house.
32 H5003 But whoso committeth adultery [H8802] H802 with a woman H2638 lacketh H3820 understanding H6213 : he that doeth [H8799] H7843 it destroyeth [H8688] H5315 his own soul.
33 H5061 A wound H7036 and dishonour H4672 shall he get [H8799] H2781 ; and his reproach H4229 shall not be wiped away [H8735] .
34 H7068 For jealousy H2534 is the rage H1397 of a man H2550 : therefore he will not spare [H8799] H3117 in the day H5359 of vengeance.
