Unchecked Copy BoxPro 5:1 - My son, pay attention to my wisdom. Turn your ear to my understanding:
Unchecked Copy BoxPro 5:2 - That you may maintain discretion, That your lips may preserve knowledge.
Unchecked Copy BoxPro 5:3 - For the lips of an adulteress drip honey. Her mouth is smoother than oil,
Unchecked Copy BoxPro 5:4 - But in the end she is as bitter as wormwood, And as sharp as a two-edged sword.
Unchecked Copy BoxPro 5:5 - Her feet go down to death. Her steps lead straight to She'ol.
Unchecked Copy BoxPro 5:6 - She gives no thought to the way of life. Her ways are crooked, and she doesn't know it.
Unchecked Copy BoxPro 5:7 - Now therefore, my sons, listen to me. Don't depart from the words of my mouth.
Unchecked Copy BoxPro 5:8 - Remove your way far from her. Don't come near the door of her house,
Unchecked Copy BoxPro 5:9 - Lest you give your honor to others, And your years to the cruel one;
Unchecked Copy BoxPro 5:10 - Lest strangers feast on your wealth, And your labors enrich another man's house.
Unchecked Copy BoxPro 5:11 - You will groan at your latter end, When your flesh and your body are consumed,
Unchecked Copy BoxPro 5:12 - And say, "How I have hated instruction, And my heart despised reproof;
Unchecked Copy BoxPro 5:13 - Neither have I obeyed the voice of my teachers, Nor turned my ear to those who instructed me!
Unchecked Copy BoxPro 5:14 - I have come to the brink of utter ruin, In the midst of the gathered assembly."
Unchecked Copy BoxPro 5:15 - Drink water out of your own cistern, Running water out of your own well.
Unchecked Copy BoxPro 5:16 - Should your springs overflow in the streets, Streams of water in the public squares?
Unchecked Copy BoxPro 5:17 - Let them be for yourself alone, Not for strangers with you.
Unchecked Copy BoxPro 5:18 - Let your spring be blessed. Rejoice in the wife of your youth.
Unchecked Copy BoxPro 5:19 - A loving doe and a graceful deer -- Let her breasts satisfy you at all times. Be captivated always with her love.
Unchecked Copy BoxPro 5:20 - For why should you, my son, be captivated with an adulteress? Why embrace the bosom of another?
Unchecked Copy BoxPro 5:21 - For the ways of man are before the eyes of the LORD. He examines all his paths.
Unchecked Copy BoxPro 5:22 - The evil deeds of the wicked ensnare him. The cords of his sin hold him firmly.
Unchecked Copy BoxPro 5:23 - He will die for lack of instruction. In the greatness of his folly, he will go astray.
