Proverbs 6

Proverbs 6:1  
My son, if thou be surety for thy friend, if thou hast stricken thy hand with a stranger,

Proverbs 6:2  
Thou art snared with the words of thy mouth, thou art taken with the words of thy mouth.

Proverbs 6:3  
Do this now, my son, and deliver thyself, when thou art come into the hand of thy friend; go, humble thyself, and make sure thy friend.

Proverbs 6:4  
Give not sleep to thine eyes, nor slumber to thine eyelids.

Proverbs 6:5  
Deliver thyself as a roe from the hand of the hunter, and as a bird from the hand of the fowler.

Proverbs 6:6  
Go to the ant, thou sluggard; consider her ways, and be wise:

Proverbs 6:7  
Which having no guide, overseer, or ruler,

Proverbs 6:8  
Provideth her meat in the summer, and gathereth her food in the harvest.

Proverbs 6:9  
How long wilt thou sleep, O sluggard? when wilt thou arise out of thy sleep?

Proverbs 6:10  
Yet a little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to sleep:

Proverbs 6:11  
So shall thy poverty come as one that travelleth, and thy want as an armed man.

Proverbs 6:12  
A naughty person, a wicked man, walketh with a froward mouth.

Proverbs 6:13  
He winketh with his eyes, he speaketh with his feet, he teacheth with his fingers;

Proverbs 6:14  
Frowardness is in his heart, he deviseth mischief continually; he soweth discord.

Proverbs 6:15  
Therefore shall his calamity come suddenly; suddenly shall he be broken without remedy.

Proverbs 6:16  
These six things doth the LORD hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him:

Proverbs 6:17  
A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood,

Proverbs 6:18  
An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief,

Proverbs 6:19  
A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren.

Proverbs 6:20  
My son, keep thy father's commandment, and forsake not the law of thy mother:

Proverbs 6:21  
Bind them continually upon thine heart, and tie them about thy neck.

Proverbs 6:22  
When thou goest, it shall lead thee; when thou sleepest, it shall keep thee; and when thou awakest, it shall talk with thee.

Proverbs 6:23  
For the commandment is a lamp; and the law is light; and reproofs of instruction are the way of life:

Proverbs 6:24  
To keep thee from the evil woman, from the flattery of the tongue of a strange woman.

Proverbs 6:25  
Lust not after her beauty in thine heart; neither let her take thee with her eyelids.

Proverbs 6:26  
For by means of a whorish woman a man is brought to a piece of bread: and the adulteress will hunt for the precious life.

Proverbs 6:27  
Can a man take fire in his bosom, and his clothes not be burned?

Proverbs 6:28  
Can one go upon hot coals, and his feet not be burned?

Proverbs 6:29  
So he that goeth in to his neighbour's wife; whosoever toucheth her shall not be innocent.

Proverbs 6:30  
Men do not despise a thief, if he steal to satisfy his soul when he is hungry;

Proverbs 6:31  
But if he be found, he shall restore sevenfold; he shall give all the substance of his house.

Proverbs 6:32  
But whoso committeth adultery with a woman lacketh understanding: he that doeth it destroyeth his own soul.

Proverbs 6:33  
A wound and dishonour shall he get; and his reproach shall not be wiped away.

Proverbs 6:34  
For jealousy is the rage of a man: therefore he will not spare in the day of vengeance.

Proverbs 6:35  
He will not regard any ransom; neither will he rest content, though thou givest many gifts.
