Listen to the Bible

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 6:1 - My son, if thou hast become surety for thy friend, if thou hast stricken thy hand for a stranger,

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 6:2 - thou art snared with the words of thy mouth, thou art taken with the words of thy mouth.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 6:3 - Do this now, my son, and deliver thyself, since thou hast come into the hand of thy friend: go, humble thyself, and be urgent with thy friend.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 6:4 - Give not sleep to thine eyes, nor slumber to thine eyelids:

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 6:5 - deliver thyself as a gazelle from the hand of the hunter, and as a bird from the hand of the fowler.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 6:6 - Go to the ant, thou sluggard; consider her ways and be wise:

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 6:7 - which having no chief, overseer, or ruler,

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 6:8 - provideth her bread in the summer, and gathereth her food in the harvest.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 6:9 - How long, sluggard, wilt thou lie down? When wilt thou arise out of thy sleep?

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 6:10 - A little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to rest!

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 6:11 - So shall thy poverty come as a roving plunderer, and thy penury as an armed man.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 6:12 - A man of Belial, a wicked person, is he that goeth about with a perverse mouth;

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 6:13 - he winketh with his eyes, he speaketh with his feet, he teacheth with his fingers;

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 6:14 - deceits are in his heart; he deviseth mischief at all times, he soweth discords.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 6:15 - Therefore shall his calamity come suddenly: in a moment shall he be broken, and without remedy.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 6:16 - These six things doth Jehovah hate, yea, seven are an abomination unto him:

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 6:17 - haughty eyes, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood;

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 6:18 - a heart that deviseth wicked imaginations; feet that are swift in running to mischief;

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 6:19 - a false witness that uttereth lies, and he that soweth discords among brethren.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 6:20 - My son, observe thy father's commandment, and forsake not the teaching of thy mother;

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 6:21 - bind them continually upon thy heart, tie them about thy neck:

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 6:22 - when thou walkest, it shall lead thee; when thou sleepest, it shall keep thee; and when thou awakest, it shall talk with thee.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 6:23 - For the commandment is a lamp, and the teaching a light, and reproofs of instruction are the way of life:

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 6:24 - to keep thee from the evil woman, from the flattery of the tongue of a strange woman.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 6:25 - Lust not after her beauty in thy heart, neither let her take thee with her eyelids;

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 6:26 - for by means of a whorish woman a man is brought to a loaf of bread, and another's wife doth hunt for the precious soul.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 6:27 - Can a man take fire in his bosom, and his garments not be burned?

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 6:28 - Can one go upon hot coals, and his feet not be scorched?

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 6:29 - So he that goeth in to his neighbour's wife: whosoever toucheth her shall not be innocent.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 6:30 - They do not despise a thief, if he steal to satisfy his soul when he is hungry:

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 6:31 - and if he be found, he shall restore sevenfold; he shall give all the substance of his house.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 6:32 - Whoso committeth adultery with a woman is void of understanding: he that doeth it destroyeth his own soul.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 6:33 - A wound and contempt shall he get; and his reproach shall not be wiped away.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 6:34 - For jealousy is the rage of a man, and he will not spare in the day of vengeance;

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 6:35 - he will not regard any ransom, neither will he rest content though thou multipliest thy gifts.
