Unchecked Copy BoxPro 6:1 - My son, if you become surety for your friend,
If you have shaken hands in pledge for a stranger,

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 6:2 - You are snared by the words of your mouth;
You are taken by the words of your mouth.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 6:3 - So do this, my son, and deliver yourself;
For you have come into the hand of your friend:
Go and humble yourself;
Plead with your friend.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 6:4 - Give no sleep to your eyes,
Nor slumber to your eyelids.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 6:5 - Deliver yourself like a gazelle from the hand of the hunter,
And like a bird from the hand of the fowler.[fn]

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 6:6 - Go to the ant, you sluggard!
Consider her ways and be wise,

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 6:7 - Which, having no captain,
Overseer or ruler,

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 6:8 - Provides her supplies in the summer,
And gathers her food in the harvest.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 6:9 - How long will you slumber, O sluggard?
When will you rise from your sleep?

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

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 6:11 - So shall your poverty come on you like a prowler,
And your need like an armed man.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 6:12 - A worthless person, a wicked man,
Walks with a perverse mouth;

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 6:13 - He winks with his eyes,
He shuffles his feet,
He points with his fingers;

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 6:14 - Perversity is in his heart,
He devises evil continually,
He sows discord.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 6:15 - Therefore his calamity shall come suddenly;
Suddenly he shall be broken without remedy.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 6:16 - These six things the LORD hates,
Yes, seven are an abomination to Him:

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 6:17 - A proud look,
A lying tongue,
Hands that shed innocent blood,

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 6:18 - A heart that devises wicked plans,
Feet that are swift in running to evil,

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 6:19 - A false witness who speaks lies,
And one who sows discord among brethren.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 6:20 - My son, keep your father’s command,
And do not forsake the law of your mother.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 6:21 - Bind them continually upon your heart;
Tie them around your neck.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 6:22 - When you roam, they[fn] will lead you;
When you sleep, they will keep you;
And when you awake, they will speak with you.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 6:23 - For the commandment is a lamp,
And the law a light;
Reproofs of instruction are the way of life,

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 6:24 - To keep you from the evil woman,
From the flattering tongue of a seductress.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 6:25 - Do not lust after her beauty in your heart,
Nor let her allure you with her eyelids.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 6:26 - For by means of a harlot
A man is reduced to a crust of bread;
And an adulteress[fn] will prey upon his precious life.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 6:27 - Can a man take fire to his bosom,
And his clothes not be burned?

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 6:28 - Can one walk on hot coals,
And his feet not be seared?

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 6:29 - So is he who goes in to his neighbor’s wife;
Whoever touches her shall not be innocent.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 6:30 - People do not despise a thief
If he steals to satisfy himself when he is starving.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 6:31 - Yet when he is found, he must restore sevenfold;
He may have to give up all the substance of his house.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 6:32 - Whoever commits adultery with a woman lacks understanding;
He who does so destroys his own soul.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 6:33 - Wounds and dishonor he will get,
And his reproach will not be wiped away.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 6:34 - For jealousy is a husband’s fury;
Therefore he will not spare in the day of vengeance.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 6:35 - He will accept no recompense,
Nor will he be appeased though you give many gifts.
