Proverbs 23

Proverbs 23:1   When thou sittest to eat with a ruler, Consider diligently him that is before thee;
Proverbs 23:2   And put a knife to thy throat, If thou be a man given to appetite.
Proverbs 23:3   Be not desirous of his dainties; Seeing they are deceitful food.
Proverbs 23:4   Weary not thyself to be rich; Cease from thine own wisdom.
Proverbs 23:5   Wilt thou set thine eyes upon that which is not? For riches certainly make themselves wings, Like an eagle that flieth toward heaven.
Proverbs 23:6   Eat thou not the bread of him that hath an evil eye, Neither desire thou his dainties:
Proverbs 23:7   For as he thinketh within himself, so is he: Eat and drink, saith he to thee; But his heart is not with thee.
Proverbs 23:8   The morsel which thou hast eaten shalt thou vomit up, And lose thy sweet words.
Proverbs 23:9   Speak not in the hearing of a fool; For he will despise the wisdom of thy words.
Proverbs 23:10   Remove not the ancient landmark; And enter not into the fields of the fatherless:
Proverbs 23:11   For their Redeemer is strong; He will plead their cause against thee.
Proverbs 23:12   Apply thy heart unto instruction, And thine ears to the words of knowledge.
Proverbs 23:13   Withhold not correction from the child; For if thou beat him with the rod, he will not die.
Proverbs 23:14   Thou shalt beat him with the rod, And shalt deliver his soul from Sheol.
Proverbs 23:15   My son, if thy heart be wise, My heart will be glad, even mine:
Proverbs 23:16   Yea, my heart will rejoice, When thy lips speak right things.
Proverbs 23:17   Let not thy heart envy sinners; But be thou in the fear of Jehovah all the day long:
Proverbs 23:18   For surely there is a reward; And thy hope shall not be cut off.
Proverbs 23:19   Hear thou, my son, and be wise, And guide thy heart in the way.
Proverbs 23:20   Be not among winebibbers, Among gluttonous eaters of flesh:
Proverbs 23:21   For the drunkard and the glutton shall come to poverty; And drowsiness will clothe a man with rags.
Proverbs 23:22   Hearken unto thy father that begat thee, And despise not thy mother when she is old.
Proverbs 23:23   Buy the truth, and sell it not; Yea, wisdom, and instruction, and understanding.
Proverbs 23:24   The father of the righteous will greatly rejoice; And he that begetteth a wise child will have joy of him.
Proverbs 23:25   Let thy father and thy mother be glad, And let her that bare thee rejoice.
Proverbs 23:26   My son, give me thy heart; And let thine eyes delight in my ways.
Proverbs 23:27   For a harlot is a deep ditch; And a foreign woman is a narrow pit.
Proverbs 23:28   Yea, she lieth in wait as a robber, And increaseth the treacherous among men.
Proverbs 23:29   Who hath woe? who hath sorrow? who hath contentions? Who hath complaining? who hath wounds without cause? Who hath redness of eyes?
Proverbs 23:30   They that tarry long at the wine; They that go to seek out mixed wine.
Proverbs 23:31   Look not thou upon the wine when it is red, When it sparkleth in the cup, When it goeth down smoothly:
Proverbs 23:32   At the last it biteth like a serpent, And stingeth like an adder.
Proverbs 23:33   Thine eyes shall behold strange things, And thy heart shall utter perverse things.
Proverbs 23:34   Yea, thou shalt be as he that lieth down in the midst of the sea, Or as he that lieth upon the top of a mast.
Proverbs 23:35   They have stricken me, shalt thou say, and I was not hurt; They have beaten me, and I felt it not: When shall I awake? I will seek it yet again.
