Proverbs 6:14-24 (Common English Bible w/ Apocrypha)

View In My Bible
14 Their hearts are corrupt and determined to do evil; they create controversies all the time. 15 Therefore, sudden disaster will come upon them; they will be quickly broken beyond healing. 16 There are six things that the LORD hates, seven things detestable to him: 17 snobbish eyes, a lying tongue, hands that spill innocent blood, 18 a heart set on wicked plans, feet that run quickly to evil, 19 a false witness who breathes lies, and one who causes conflicts among relatives.

Danger of adultery

20 My son, keep your father's command; don't abandon your mother's instruction. 21 Bind them on your heart for all time; fasten them around your neck. 22 When you walk around, they will lead you; when you lie down, they will protect you; when you awake, they will occupy your attention. 23 The commandment is a lamp and instruction a light; corrective teaching is the path of life. 24 They guard you from the evil woman, from the flattering tongue of the foreign woman.
