1 H1121 My son, H6148 [H8804] if thou art surety H7453 for thy friend, H8628 [H8804] if thou hast struck H3709 thy hand H2114 [H8801] with a stranger,
2 H3369 [H8738] Thou art snared H561 with the words H6310 of thy mouth, H3920 [H8738] thou art taken H561 with the words H6310 of thy mouth.
3 H6213 [H8798] Do H645 this now, H1121 my son, H5337 [H8734] and deliver H935 [H8804] thyself, when thou art come H3709 into the hand H7453 of thy friend; H3212 [H8798] go, H7511 [H8690] humble H7292 [H8798] thyself, and plead with H7453 thy friend.
5 H5337 [H8734] Deliver 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 [H8798] Go H5244 to the ant, H6102 thou sluggard; H7200 [H8798] consider H1870 her ways, H2449 [H8798] and be wise:
8 H3559 [H8686] Provideth H3899 her food H7019 in the summer, H103 [H8804] and gathereth H3978 her food H7105 in the harvest.
9 H7901 [H8799] How long wilt thou sleep, H6102 O sluggard? H6965 [H8799] when wilt thou arise 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 [H8800] to sleep:
11 H7389 So shall thy poverty H935 [H8804] come H1980 [H8764] as one that travelleth, H4270 and thy want H4043 as an armed H376 man.
12 H1100 A worthless H120 person, H205 a panting H376 man, H1980 [H8802] walketh H6143 with a perverse H6310 mouth.
13 H7169 [H8802] He winketh H5869 with his eyes, H4448 [H8802] he speaketh H7272 with his feet, H3384 [H8688] he teacheth H676 with his fingers;
14 H8419 Perverseness H3820 is in his heart, H2790 [H8802] he deviseth H7451 evil H6256 continually; H7971 [H8762] he soweth H4066 H4090 [H8675] discord.
15 H343 Therefore shall his calamity H935 [H8799] come H6597 suddenly; H6621 suddenly H7665 [H8735] shall he be broken H4832 without remedy.
16 H8337 These six H3068 things doth the LORD H8130 [H8804] hate: H7651 yea, seven H8441 are abominations H5315 to his breath:
17 H7311 [H8802] A proud H5869 look, H8267 a lying H3956 tongue, H3027 and hands H8210 [H8802] that shed H5355 innocent H1818 blood,
18 H3820 An heart H2790 [H8802] that deviseth H205 panting H4284 imaginations, H7272 feet H4116 [H8764] that are swift H7323 [H8800] in running H7451 to evil,
19 H8267 A false H5707 witness H6315 [H8686] that speaketh H3577 lies, H7971 [H8764] and him that soweth H4090 discord H251 among brethren.
20 H1121 My son, H5341 [H8798] keep H1 thy father's H4687 commandment, H5203 [H8799] and forsake H8451 not the law H517 of thy mother:
21 H7194 [H8798] Bind H8548 them continually H3820 upon thy heart, H6029 [H8798] and tie H1621 them about thy neck.
22 H1980 [H8692] When thou goest, H5148 [H8686] it shall lead H7901 [H8800] thee; when thou sleepest, H8104 [H8799] it shall keep H6974 [H8689] thee; and when thou awakest, H7878 [H8799] it shall talk 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 [H8800] To keep H7451 thee from the evil H802 woman, H2513 from the flattery H3956 of the tongue H5237 of an adulteress woman.
25 H2530 [H8799] Lust H3308 not after her beauty H3824 in thy heart; H3947 [H8799] neither let her take H6079 thee with her eyelids.
26 H1157 For by means of H2181 H802 [H8802] an harlot H3603 a man is brought to a piece H3899 of bread: H802 H376 and the adulteress H6679 [H8799] will hunt H3368 for the precious H5315 breath.
27 H376 Can a man H2846 [H8799] take H784 fire H2436 in his bosom, H899 and his clothes H8313 [H8735] not be burned?
28 H376 Can one H1980 [H8762] go H1513 upon hot coals, H7272 and his feet H3554 [H8735] not be burned?
29 H935 [H8802] So he that goeth in H7453 to his neighbour's H802 wife; H5060 [H8802] whoever toucheth H5352 [H8735] her shall not be innocent.
30 H936 [H8799] Men do not despise H1590 a thief, H1589 [H8799] if he stealeth H4390 [H8763] to satisfy H5315 his breath H7456 [H8799] when he is hungry;
31 H4672 [H8738] But if he is found, H7999 [H8762] he shall restore H7659 sevenfold; H5414 [H8799] he shall give H1952 all the substance H1004 of his house.
32 H5003 [H8802] But whoever committeth adultery H802 with a woman H2638 lacketh H3820 understanding: H6213 [H8799] he that doeth H7843 [H8688] it decayeth H5315 his own breath.
33 H5061 A wound H7036 and dishonour H4672 [H8799] shall he get; H2781 and his reproach H4229 [H8735] shall not be wiped away.
34 H7068 For jealousy H2534 is the rage H1397 of a man: H2550 [H8799] therefore he will not spare H3117 in the day H5359 of vengeance.
