Proverbs Chapter 6   
   King James Version

     1 My son, if thou be surety for thy friend, [if] thou hast stricken thy hand with a stranger, [mhcc]   2 Thou art snared with the words of thy mouth, thou art taken with the words of thy mouth. [gsn]   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.   4 Give not sleep to thine eyes, nor slumber to thine eyelids.   5 Deliver thyself as a roe from the hand [of the hunter], and as a bird from the hand of the fowler.   6 Go to the ant, thou sluggard; consider her ways, and be wise: [gsn] [mhcc]   7 Which having no guide, overseer, or ruler,   8 Provideth her meat in the summer, [and] gathereth her food in the harvest.   9 How long wilt thou sleep, O sluggard? when wilt thou arise out of thy sleep?   10 [Yet] a little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to sleep: [gsn]   11 So shall thy poverty come as one that travelleth, and thy want as an armed man. [gsn]   12 A naughty person, a wicked man, walketh with a froward mouth. [gsn] [mhcc]   13 He winketh with his eyes, he speaketh with his feet, he teacheth with his fingers; [gsn]   14 Frowardness [is] in his heart, he deviseth mischief continually; he soweth discord.   15 Therefore shall his calamity come suddenly; suddenly shall he be broken without remedy.   16 These six [things] doth the LORD hate: yea, seven [are] an abomination unto him:   17 A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood,   18 An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief, [gsn]   19 A false witness [that] speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren.   20 My son, keep thy father's commandment, and forsake not the law of thy mother: [mhcc]   21 Bind them continually upon thine heart, [and] tie them about thy neck. [gsn]   22 When thou goest, it shall lead thee; when thou sleepest, it shall keep thee; and [when] thou awakest, it shall talk with thee.   23 For the commandment [is] a lamp; and the law [is] light; and reproofs of instruction [are] the way of life: [gsn]   24 To keep thee from the evil woman, from the flattery of the tongue of a strange woman.   25 Lust not after her beauty in thine heart; neither let her take thee with her eyelids. [gsn]   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.   27 Can a man take fire in his bosom, and his clothes not be burned? [gsn]   28 Can one go upon hot coals, and his feet not be burned?   29 So he that goeth in to his neighbour's wife; whosoever toucheth her shall not be innocent.   30 [Men] do not despise a thief, if he steal to satisfy his soul when he is hungry; [gsn]   31 But [if] he be found, he shall restore sevenfold; he shall give all the substance of his house.   32 [But] whoso committeth adultery with a woman lacketh understanding: he [that] doeth it destroyeth his own soul.   33 A wound and dishonour shall he get; and his reproach shall not be wiped away. [gsn]   34 For jealousy [is] the rage of a man: therefore he will not spare in the day of vengeance. [gsn]   35 He will not regard any ransom; neither will he rest content, though thou givest many gifts.

And behold at eveningtide trouble; [and] before the morning he [is] not. This [is] the portion of them that spoil us, and the lot of them that rob us.
