Parental Counsel

1 My son, if you have become 1surety for your neighbor, Have agiven a pledge for a stranger, 2 If you have been snared with the words of your mouth, Have been caught with the words of your mouth, 3 Do this then, my son, and deliver yourself; Since you have come into the bhand of your neighbor, Go, humble yourself, and importune your neighbor. 4 Give no 2sleep to your eyes, Nor slumber to your eyelids; 5 Deliver yourself like a gazelle from the hunter's hand And like a 3bird from the hand of the fowler. 6 Go to the 4ant, O 5sluggard, Observe her ways and be wise, 7 Which, having 6no chief, Officer or ruler, 8 Prepares her food 7in the summer And gathers her provision in the harvest. 9 How long will you lie down, O sluggard? When will you arise from your sleep? 10 "8A little sleep, a little slumber, A little folding of the hands to crest "- 11 9Your poverty will come in like a dvagabond And your need like ean armed man. 12 A 10worthless person, a wicked man, Is the one who walks with a 11perverse mouth, 13 Who 12winks with his eyes, who fsignals with his feet, Who gpoints with his fingers; 14 Who with 13perversity in his heart continually 14devises evil, Who h15spreads strife. 15 Therefore 16his calamity will come suddenly; 17Instantly he will be broken and there will be 18no healing. 16 There are six things which the LORD hates, Yes, seven which are an abomination ito Him: 17 19Haughty eyes, a 20lying tongue, And hands that 21shed innocent blood, 18 A heart that devises 22wicked plans, 23Feet that run rapidly to evil, 19 A 24false witness who utters lies, And one who j25spreads strife among brothers.
