Proverbs Chapter 5   
   King James Version

     1 My son, attend unto my wisdom, [and] bow thine ear to my understanding: [jfb]   2 That thou mayest regard discretion, and [that] thy lips may keep knowledge. [jfb]   3 For the lips of a strange woman drop [as] an honeycomb, and her mouth [is] smoother than oil: [gsn] [jfb] [jwc]   4 But her end is bitter as wormwood, sharp as a twoedged sword. [jfb] [jwc]   5 Her feet go down to death; her steps take hold on hell. [gsn] [jfb] [jwc]   6 Lest thou shouldest ponder the path of life, her ways are moveable, [that] thou canst not know [them]. [gsn] [jfb] [jwc]   7 Hear me now therefore, O ye children, and depart not from the words of my mouth.   8 Remove thy way far from her, and come not nigh the door of her house: [jfb]   9 Lest thou give thine honour unto others, and thy years unto the cruel: [gsn] [jfb] [jwc]   10 Lest strangers be filled with thy wealth; and thy labours [be] in the house of a stranger; [gsn] [jfb] [jwc]   11 And thou mourn at the last, when thy flesh and thy body are consumed, [jfb]   12 And say, How have I hated instruction, and my heart despised reproof; [jfb]   13 And have not obeyed the voice of my teachers, nor inclined mine ear to them that instructed me!   14 I was almost in all evil in the midst of the congregation and assembly. [gsn] [jfb] [jwc]   15 Drink waters out of thine own cistern, and running waters out of thine own well. [gsn] [jfb] [jwc]   16 Let thy fountains be dispersed abroad, [and] rivers of waters in the streets. [jwc]   17 Let them be only thine own, and not strangers' with thee. [gsn] [jfb]   18 Let thy fountain be blessed: and rejoice with the wife of thy youth. [gsn] [jfb] [jwc]   19 [Let her be as] the loving hind and pleasant roe; let her breasts satisfy thee at all times; and be thou ravished always with her love. [jfb] [jwc]   20 And why wilt thou, my son, be ravished with a strange woman, and embrace the bosom of a stranger?   21 For the ways of man [are] before the eyes of the LORD, and he pondereth all his goings. [gsn] [jfb]   22 His own iniquities shall take the wicked himself, and he shall be holden with the cords of his sins. [jfb] [jwc]   23 He shall die without instruction; and in the greatness of his folly he shall go astray. [gsn] [jfb] [jwc]
