Proverbs 6:1-19 KJV

1 My son, if thou be surety for thy friend, if thou hast stricken thy hand with a stranger ,
2 Thou art snared with the words of thy mouth, thou art taken with the words of thy mouth.
3 Do this now, my son, and deliver thyself, when thou art come into the hand of thy friend; go , humble thyself, and make sure thy friend.
4 Give not sleep to thine eyes, nor slumber to thine eyelids.
5 Deliver thyself as a roe from the hand of the hunter, and as a bird from the hand of the fowler.
6 Go to the ant, thou sluggard; consider her ways, and be wise :
7 Which having no guide, overseer , or ruler ,
8 Provideth her meat in the summer, and gathereth her food in the harvest.
9 How long wilt thou sleep , O sluggard? when wilt thou arise out of thy sleep?
10 Yet a little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to sleep :
11 So shall thy poverty come as one that travelleth , and thy want as an armed man.
13 He winketh with his eyes, he speaketh with his feet, he teacheth with his fingers;
14 Frowardness is in his heart, he deviseth mischief continually; he sowetha discord * .
