Proverbs 23:22-32 KJV

22 Hearken unto thy father that begat thee, and despise not thy mother when she is old .
23 Buy the truth, and sell it not; also wisdom, and instruction, and understanding.
24 The father of the righteous shall greatly rejoice : and he that begetteth a wise child shall have joy of him.
25 Thy father and thy mother shall be glad , and she that bare thee shall rejoice .
26 My son, give me thine heart, and let thine eyes observe my ways.
27 For a whore is a deep ditch; and a strange woman is a narrow pit.
28 She also lieth in wait as for a prey, and increaseth the transgressors among men.
29 Who hath woe? who hath sorrow? who hath contentions ? who hath babbling? who hath wounds without cause? who hath redness of eyes?
30 They that tarry long at the wine; they that go to seek mixed wine.
31 Look not thou upon the wine when it is red , when it giveth his colour in the cup , when it moveth itself aright.
32 At the last it biteth like a serpent, and stingetha like an adder.
