PROV 5:1 My son! to my wisdom give attention, To mine understanding incline thine ear, PROV 5:2 To observe thoughtfulness, And knowledge do thy lips keep. PROV 5:3 For the lips of a strange woman drop honey, And smoother than oil `isher mouth, PROV 5:4 And her latter end `isbitter as wormwood, Sharp as a sword `withmouths. PROV 5:5 Her feet are going down to death, Sheol do her steps take hold of. PROV 5:6 The path of life -- lest thou ponder, Moved have her paths -- thou knowest not. PROV 5:7 And now, ye sons, hearken to me, And turn not from sayings of my mouth. PROV 5:8 Keep far from off her thy way, And come not near unto the opening of her house, PROV 5:9 Lest thou give to others thy honour, And thy years to the fierce, PROV 5:10 Lest strangers be filled `withthy power, And thy labours in the house of a stranger, PROV 5:11 And thou hast howled in thy latter end, In the consumption of thy flesh and thy food, PROV 5:12 And hast said, `How have I hated instruction, And reproof hath my heart despised, PROV 5:13 And I have not hearkened to the voice of my directors, And to my teachers have not inclined mine ear. PROV 5:14 As a little thing I have been all evil, In the midst of an assembly and a company. PROV 5:15 Drink waters out of thine own cistern, Even flowing ones out of thine own well. PROV 5:16 Let thy fountains be scattered abroad, In broad places rivulets of waters. PROV 5:17 Let them be to thee for thyself, And not to strangers with thee. PROV 5:18 Let thy fountain be blessed, And rejoice because of the wife of thy youth, PROV 5:19 A hind of loves, and a roe of grace! Let her loves satisfy thee at all times, In her love magnify thyself continually. PROV 5:20 And why dost thou magnify thyself, My son, with a stranger? And embrace the bosom of a strange woman? PROV 5:21 For over-against the eyes of Jehovah are the ways of each, And all his paths He is pondering. PROV 5:22 His own iniquities do capture the wicked, And with the ropes of his sin he is holden. PROV 5:23 He dieth without instruction, And in the abundance of his folly magnifieth himself!
