Avoid Seduction

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 5:1 -

My son, pay attention to my wisdom;

listen closely[fn] to my understanding

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 5:2 -

so that you may maintain discretion

and your lips safeguard knowledge.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 5:3 -

Though the lips of the forbidden woman drip honey

and her words are[fn] smoother than oil,

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 5:4 -

in the end she’s as bitter as wormwood

and as sharp as a double-edged sword.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 5:5 -

Her feet go down to death;

her steps head straight for Sheol.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 5:6 -

She doesn’t consider the path of life;

she doesn’t know that her ways are unstable.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 5:7 -

So now, sons, listen to me,

and don’t turn away from the words from my mouth.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 5:8 -

Keep your way far from her.

Don’t go near the door of her house.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 5:9 -

Otherwise, you will give up your vitality to others

and your years to someone cruel;

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 5:10 -

strangers will drain your resources,

and your hard-earned pay will end up in a foreigner’s house.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 5:11 -

At the end of your life, you will lament

when your physical body has been consumed,

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 5:12 -

and you will say, “How I hated discipline,

and how my heart despised correction.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 5:13 -

“I didn’t obey my teachers

or listen closely[fn] to my instructors.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 5:14 -

“I am on the verge of complete ruin

before the entire community.”

Enjoy Marriage

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 5:15 -

Drink water from your own cistern,

water flowing from your own well.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 5:16 -

Should your springs flow in the streets,

streams in the public squares?

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 5:17 -

They should be for you alone

and not for you to share with strangers.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 5:18 -

Let your fountain be blessed,

and take pleasure in the wife of your youth.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 5:19 -

A loving deer, a graceful doe[fn] —

let her breasts always satisfy you;

be lost in her love forever.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 5:20 -

Why, my son, would you lose yourself

with a forbidden woman

or embrace a wayward woman?

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 5:21 -

For a man’s ways are before the LORD’s eyes,

and he considers all his paths.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 5:22 -

A wicked man’s iniquities will trap him;

he will become tangled in the ropes of his own sin.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 5:23 -

He will die because there is no discipline,

and be lost because of his great stupidity.
