Proverbs 6

6:1 My son, if thou art surety for thy friend, [if] thou hast
 stricken thy hand with a stranger,
6:2 Thou art snared with the words of thy mouth, thou art taken
 with the words of thy mouth.
6:3 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.
6:4 Give not sleep to thy eyes, nor slumber to thy eyelids.
6:5 Deliver thyself as a roe from the hand [of the hunter], and
 as a bird from the hand of the fowler.
6:6 Go to the ant, thou sluggard; consider her ways, and be
6:7 Which having no guide, overseer, or ruler,
6:8 Provideth her provisions in the summer, [and] gathereth her
 food in the harvest.
6:9 How long wilt thou sleep, O sluggard? when wilt thou arise
 out of thy sleep?
6:10 [Yet] a little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of
 the hands to sleep:
6:11 So shall thy poverty come as one that traveleth, and thy
 want as an armed man.
6:12 A naughty person, a wicked man, walketh with a froward
6:13 He winketh with his eyes, he speaketh with his feet, he
 teacheth with his fingers;
6:14 Frowardness [is] in his heart, he deviseth mischief
 continually; he soweth discord.
6:15 Therefore shall his calamity come suddenly; suddenly shall
 he be broken without remedy.
6:16 These six [things] doth the LORD hate: yes, seven [are] an
 abomination to him:
6:17 A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent
6:18 A heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that are
 swift in running to mischief,
6:19 A false witness [that] speaketh lies, and him that soweth
 discord among brethren.
6:20 My son, keep thy father's commandment, and forsake not the
 law of thy mother:
6:21 Bind them continually upon thy heart, [and] tie them about
 thy neck.
6:22 When thou goest, it shall lead thee; when thou sleepest, it
 shall keep thee; and [when] thou awakest, it shall talk with
6:23 For the commandment [is] a lamp; and the law [is] light;
 and reproofs of instruction [are] the way of life:
6:24 To keep thee from the evil woman, from the flattery of the
 tongue of a strange woman.
6:25 Lust not after her beauty in thy heart; neither let her
 take thee with her eyelids.
6:26 For by means of a lewd woman [a man is brought] to a piece
 of bread: and the adulteress will hunt for the precious life.
6:27 Can a man take fire in his bosom, and his clothes not be
6:28 Can one go upon hot coals, and his feet not be burned?
6:29 So he that goeth in to his neighbor's wife; whoever
 toucheth her shall not be innocent.
6:30 [Men] do not despise a thief, if he stealeth to satisfy his
 soul when he is hungry;
6:31 But [if] he is found, he shall restore seven-fold; he shall
 give all the substance of his house.
6:32 [But] whoever committeth adultery with a woman lacketh
 understanding: he [that] doeth it destroyeth his own soul.
6:33 A wound and dishonor shall he get; and his reproach shall
 not be wiped away.
6:34 For jealousy [is] the rage of a man: therefore he will not
 spare in the day of vengeance.
6:35 He will not regard any ransom; neither will he rest
 content, though thou givest many gifts.
