Proverbs 5

Proverbs 5:1   My son, attend unto my wisdom; Incline thine ear to my understanding:
Proverbs 5:2   That thou mayest preserve discretion, And that thy lips may keep knowledge.
Proverbs 5:3   For the lips of a strange woman drop honey, And her mouth is smoother than oil:
Proverbs 5:4   But in the end she is bitter as wormwood, Sharp as a two-edged sword.
Proverbs 5:5   Her feet go down to death; Her steps take hold on Sheol;
Proverbs 5:6   So that she findeth not the level path of life: Her ways are unstable, and she knoweth it not.
Proverbs 5:7   Now therefore, my sons, hearken unto me, And depart not from the words of my mouth.
Proverbs 5:8   Remove thy way far from her, And come not nigh the door of her house;
Proverbs 5:9   Lest thou give thine honor unto others, And thy years unto the cruel;
Proverbs 5:10   Lest strangers be filled with thy strength, And thy labors be in the house of an alien,
Proverbs 5:11   And thou mourn at thy latter end, When thy flesh and thy body are consumed,
Proverbs 5:12   And say, How have I hated instruction, And my heart despised reproof;
Proverbs 5:13   Neither have I obeyed the voice of my teachers, Nor inclined mine ear to them that instructed me!
Proverbs 5:14   I was well-nigh in all evil In the midst of the assembly and congregation.
Proverbs 5:15   Drink waters out of thine own cistern, And running waters out of thine own well.
Proverbs 5:16   Should thy springs be dispersed abroad, And streams of water in the streets?
Proverbs 5:17   Let them be for thyself alone, And not for strangers with thee.
Proverbs 5:18   Let thy fountain be blessed; And rejoice in the wife of thy youth.
Proverbs 5:19   As a loving hind and a pleasant doe, Let her breasts satisfy thee at all times; And be thou ravished always with her love.
Proverbs 5:20   For why shouldest thou, my son, be ravished with a strange woman, And embrace the bosom of a foreigner?
Proverbs 5:21   For the ways of man are before the eyes of Jehovah; And he maketh level all his paths.
Proverbs 5:22   His own iniquities shall take the wicked, And he shall be holden with the cords of his sin.
Proverbs 5:23   He shall die for lack of instruction; And in the greatness of his folly he shall go astray.
