Proverbs 6:20-35 (New American Standard)

View In My Bible
20 1My son, observe the commandment of your father And do not forsake the ateaching of your mother ; 21 2Bind them continually on your heart ; Tie them around your neck. 22 When you 3walk about, bthey will guide you; When you sleep, cthey will watch over you; And when you awake, dthey will talk to you. 23 For 4the commandment is a lamp and the eteaching is light ; And reproofs for discipline are the way of life 24 To 5keep you from the evil woman, From the smooth tongue of the fadulteress. 25 6Do not desire her beauty in your heart, Nor let her capture you with her 7eyelids. 26 For 8on account of a harlot one is reduced to a loaf of bread, And gan adulteress 9hunts for the precious life. 27 Can a man htake fire in his bosom And his clothes not be burned ? 28 Or can a man walk on hot coals And his feet not be scorched ? 29 So is the one who 10goes in to his neighbor's wife ; Whoever touches her 11will not igo unpunished. 30 jMen do not despise a thief if he steals To 12satisfy khimself when he is hungry ; 31 But when he is found, he must 13repay sevenfold ; He must give all the lsubstance of his house. 32 The one who commits adultery with a woman is 14lacking msense ; He who would 15destroy nhimself does it. 33 Wounds and disgrace he will find, And his reproach will not be blotted out. 34 For 16jealousy oenrages a man, And he will not spare in the 17day of vengeance. 35 He will not paccept any ransom, Nor will he be qsatisfied though you give many rgifts.
