Financial Entanglements

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 6:1 -

My son, if you have put up security for your neighbor[fn]

or entered into an agreement with[fn] a stranger,

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 6:2 -

you have been snared by the words of your mouth

trapped by the words from your mouth.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 6:3 -

Do this, then, my son, and free yourself,

for you have put yourself in your neighbor’s power:

Go, humble yourself, and plead with your neighbor.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 6:4 -

Don’t give sleep to your eyes

or slumber to your eyelids.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 6:5 -

Escape like a gazelle from a hunter,[fn]

like a bird from a hunter’s trap.[fn]

Laziness

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 6:6 -

Go to the ant, you slacker!

Observe its ways and become wise.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 6:7 -

Without leader, administrator, or ruler,

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 6:8 -

it prepares its provisions in summer;

it gathers its food during harvest.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 6:9 -

How long will you stay in bed, you slacker?

When will you get up from your sleep?

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 6:10 -

A little sleep, a little slumber,

a little folding of the arms to rest,

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 6:11 -

and your poverty will come like a robber,

your need, like a bandit.

The Malicious Man

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 6:12 -

A worthless person, a wicked man

goes around speaking dishonestly,

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 6:13 -

winking his eyes, signaling with his feet,

and gesturing with his fingers.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 6:14 -

He always plots evil with perversity in his heart;

he stirs up trouble.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 6:15 -

Therefore calamity will strike him suddenly;

he will be shattered instantly, beyond recovery.

What the LORD Hates

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 6:16 -

The LORD hates six things;

in fact, seven are detestable to him:

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 6:17 -

arrogant eyes, a lying tongue,

hands that shed innocent blood,

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 6:18 -

a heart that plots wicked schemes,

feet eager to run to evil,

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 6:19 -

a lying witness who gives false testimony,

and one who stirs up trouble among brothers.

Warning against Adultery

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 6:20 -

My son, keep your father’s command,

and don’t reject your mother’s teaching.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 6:21 -

Always bind them to your heart;

tie them around your neck.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 6:22 -

When you walk here and there, they will guide you;

when you lie down, they will watch over you;

when you wake up, they will talk to you.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 6:23 -

For a command is a lamp, teaching is a light,

and corrective discipline is the way to life.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 6:24 -

They will protect you from an evil woman,[fn]

from the flattering[fn] tongue of a wayward woman.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 6:25 -

Don’t lust in your heart for her beauty

or let her captivate you with her eyelashes.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 6:26 -

For a prostitute’s fee is only a loaf of bread,[fn]

but the wife of another man[fn] goes after a precious life.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 6:27 -

Can a man embrace fire

and his clothes not be burned?

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 6:28 -

Can a man walk on burning coals

without scorching his feet?

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 6:29 -

So it is with the one who sleeps with

another man’s wife;

no one who touches her will go unpunished.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 6:30 -

People don’t despise the thief if he steals

to satisfy himself when he is hungry.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 6:31 -

Still, if caught, he must pay seven times as much;

he must give up all the wealth in his house.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 6:32 -

The one who commits adultery[fn] lacks sense;

whoever does so destroys himself.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 6:33 -

He will get a beating[fn] and dishonor,

and his disgrace will never be removed.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 6:34 -

For jealousy enrages a husband,

and he will show no mercy when he takes revenge.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 6:35 -

He will not be appeased by anything

or be persuaded by lavish bribes.
