Proverbs 5

1 - My son, attend unto my wisdom, [and] bow thine ear to my understanding:
2 - That thou mayest regard discretion, and [that] thy lips may keep knowledge.
3 - For the lips of a strange woman drop [as] an honeycomb, and her mouth [is] smoother than oil:
4 - But her end is bitter as wormwood, sharp as a twoedged sword.
5 - Her feet go down to death; her steps take hold on hell.
6 - Lest thou shouldest ponder the path of life, her ways are moveable, [that] thou canst not know [them].
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:
9 - Lest thou give thine honour unto others, and thy years unto the cruel:
10 - Lest strangers be filled with thy wealth; and thy labours [be] in the house of a stranger;
11 - And thou mourn at the last, when thy flesh and thy body are consumed,
12 - And say, How have I hated instruction, and my heart despised reproof;
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.
15 - Drink waters out of thine own cistern, and running waters out of thine own well.
16 - Let thy fountains be dispersed abroad, [and] rivers of waters in the streets.
17 - Let them be only thine own, and not strangers' with thee.
18 - Let thy fountain be blessed: and rejoice with the wife of thy youth.
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.
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.
22 - His own iniquities shall take the wicked himself, and he shall be holden with the cords of his sins.
23 - He shall die without instruction; and in the greatness of his folly he shall go astray.
