Proverbs 23

  1 H3427 [H8799] When thou sittest H3898 [H8800] to eat H4910 [H8802] with a ruler, H995 [H8799] consider H995 [H8800] diligently H6440 what is before thee:
  2 H7760 [H8804] And put H7915 a knife H3930 to thy throat, H1167 if thou art a man given H5315 to appetite.
  3 H183 [H8691] Be not desirous H4303 of his dainties: H3577 for they are deceitful H3899 food.
  4 H3021 [H8799] Labour H6238 [H8687] not to be rich: H2308 [H8798] cease H998 from thy own wisdom.
  5 H5774 H5774 [H8686] Wilt thou set H5869 thy eyes H6213 [H8800] upon that which is not? for riches certainly H6213 [H8799] make H3671 to themselves wings; H5774 H5774 [H8799] they fly away H5404 as an eagle H8064 toward heaven.
  6 H3898 [H8799] Eat H3899 thou not the bread H7451 of him that hath an evil H5869 eye, H183 [H8691] neither desire H4303 thou his delicacies:
  7 H8176 [H8804] For as he thinketh H5315 in his breath, H398 [H8798] so is he: Eat H8354 [H8798] and drink, H559 [H8799] saith H3820 he to thee; but his heart is not with thee.
  8 H6595 The morsel H398 [H8804] which thou hast eaten H6958 [H8686] shalt thou vomit up, H7843 [H8765] and decay H5273 thy sweet H1697 words.
  9 H1696 [H8762] Speak H241 not in the ears H3684 of a fool: H936 [H8799] for he will despise H7922 the wisdom H4405 of thy words.
  10 H5253 [H8686] Remove H5769 not the old H1366 landmark; H935 [H8799] and enter H7704 not into the fields H3490 of the fatherless:
  11 H1350 [H8802] For their redeemer H2389 is mighty; H7378 [H8799] he shall plead H7379 their cause with thee.
  12 H935 [H8685] Apply H3820 thy heart H4148 to instruction, H241 and thy ears H561 to the words H1847 of knowledge.
  13 H4513 [H8799] Withhold H4148 not correction H5288 from the child: H5221 [H8686] for if thou beatest H7626 him with the rod, H4191 [H8799] he shall not die.
  14 H5221 [H8686] Thou shalt beat H7626 him with the rod, H5337 [H8686] and shalt deliver H5315 his breath H7585 from the grave.
  15 H1121 My son, H3820 if thy heart H2449 [H8804] be wise, H3820 my heart H8055 [H8799] shall rejoice, H589 even mine.
  16 H3629 Yea, my reins H5937 [H8799] shall rejoice, H8193 when thy lips H1696 [H8763] speak H4339 right things.
  17 H3820 Let not thy heart H7065 [H8762] envy H2400 sinners: H3374 but be thou in the fear H3068 of the LORD H3117 all the day long.
  18 H3426 For surely there is H319 an end; H8615 and thy expectation H3772 [H8735] shall not be cut off.
  19 H8085 [H8798] Hear H1121 thou, my son, H2449 [H8798] and be wise, H833 [H8761] and guide H3820 thy heart H1870 in the way.
  20 H3196 H5433 [H8802] Be not among winebibbers; H2151 [H8802] among gluttonous eaters H1320 of flesh:
  21 H5433 [H8802] For the drunkard H2151 [H8802] and the glutton H3423 [H8735] shall come to poverty: H5124 and drowsiness H3847 [H8686] shall clothe H7168 a man with rags.
  22 H8085 [H8798] Hearken H1 to thy father H3205 [H8804] that begat H936 [H8799] thee, and despise H517 not thy mother H2204 [H8804] when she is old.
  23 H7069 [H8798] Buy H571 the truth, H4376 [H8799] and sell H2451 it not; also wisdom, H4148 and instruction, H998 and understanding.
  24 H1 The father H6662 of the righteous H1524 shall greatly H1523 [H8799] rejoice: H3205 [H8802] and he that begetteth H2450 a wise H8055 [H8799] child shall have joy of him.
  25 H1 Thy father H517 and thy mother H8055 [H8799] shall be glad, H3205 [H8802] and she that bore H1523 [H8799] thee shall rejoice.
  26 H1121 My son, H5414 [H8798] give H3820 me thy heart, H5869 and let thy eyes H7521 H5341 [H8799] observe H1870 my ways.
  27 H2181 [H8802] For an harlot H6013 is a deep H7745 chasm; H5237 and an adulteress H6862 is a narrow H875 well.
  28 H693 [H8799] She also lieth in wait H2863 as for a prey, H3254 [H8686] and increaseth H898 [H8802] the transgressors H120 among men.
  29 H188 Who hath woe? H17 who hath sorrow? H4079 H4066 [H8675] who hath contentions? H7879 who hath babbling? H6482 who hath wounds H2600 without cause? H2448 who hath redness H5869 of eyes?
  30 H309 [H8764] They that tarry long H3196 at the wine; H935 [H8802] they that go H2713 [H8800] to seek H4469 mixed wine.
  31 H7200 [H8799] Look H3196 not thou upon the wine H119 [H8691] when it is red, H5414 [H8799] when it giveth H5869 its colour H3563 H3599 [H8675] in the cup, H1980 [H8691] when it moveth H4339 itself aright.
  32 H319 At the last H5391 [H8799] it biteth H5175 like a serpent, H6567 [H8686] and stingeth H6848 like an adder.
  33 H5869 Thy eyes H7200 [H8799] shall behold H2114 [H8801] strange things, H3820 and thy heart H1696 [H8762] shall utter H8419 perverse things.
  34 H7901 [H8802] And thou shalt be as he that lieth down H3820 in the midst H3220 of the sea, H7901 [H8802] or as he that lieth H7218 upon the top H2260 of a mast.
  35 H5221 [H8689] They have stricken H2470 [H8804] me, shalt thou say, and I was not sick; H1986 [H8804] they have beaten H3045 [H8804] me, and I felt H6974 [H8686] it not: when shall I awake? H1245 [H8762] I will seek H3254 [H8686] it yet again.
