Proverbs 6

CSB 1 My son, if you have put up security for your neighbor or entered into an agreement with a stranger, NIV 1 My son, if you have put up security for your neighbor, if you have struck hands in pledge for another, CSB 2 you have been trapped by the words of your lips- ensnared by the words of your mouth. NIV 2 if you have been trapped by what you said, ensnared by the words of your mouth, CSB 3 Do this, then, my son, and free yourself, for you have put yourself in your neighbor's power: Go, humble yourself, and plead with your neighbor. NIV 3 then do this, my son, to free yourself, since you have fallen into your neighbor's hands: Go and humble yourself; press your plea with your neighbor! CSB 4 Don't give sleep to your eyes or slumber to your eyelids. NIV 4 Allow no sleep to your eyes, no slumber to your eyelids. CSB 5 Escape like a gazelle from a hunter, like a bird from a fowler's trap. NIV 5 Free yourself, like a gazelle from the hand of the hunter, like a bird from the snare of the fowler. CSB 6 Go to the ant, you slacker! Observe its ways and become wise. NIV 6 Go to the ant, you sluggard; consider its ways and be wise! CSB 7 Without leader, administrator, or ruler, NIV 7 It has no commander, no overseer or ruler, CSB 8 it prepares its provisions in summer; it gathers its food during harvest. NIV 8 yet it stores its provisions in summer and gathers its food at harvest. CSB 9 How long will you stay in bed, you slacker? When will you get up from your sleep? NIV 9 How long will you lie there, you sluggard? When will you get up from your sleep? CSB 10 A little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the arms to rest, NIV 10 A little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to rest-- CSB 11 and your poverty will come like a robber, your need, like a bandit. NIV 11 and poverty will come on you like a bandit and scarcity like an armed man. CSB 12 A worthless person, a wicked man, who goes around speaking dishonestly, NIV 12 A scoundrel and villain, who goes about with a corrupt mouth, CSB 13 who winks his eyes, signals with his feet, and gestures with his fingers, NIV 13 who winks with his eye, signals with his feet and motions with his fingers, CSB 14 who plots evil with perversity in his heart- he stirs up trouble constantly. NIV 14 who plots evil with deceit in his heart-- he always stirs up dissension. CSB 15 Therefore calamity will strike him suddenly; he will be shattered instantly-beyond recovery. NIV 15 Therefore disaster will overtake him in an instant; he will suddenly be destroyed--without remedy. CSB 16 Six things the Lord hates; in fact, seven are detestable to Him: NIV 16 There are six things the LORD hates, seven that are detestable to him: CSB 17 arrogant eyes, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood, NIV 17 haughty eyes, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood, CSB 18 a heart that plots wicked schemes, feet eager to run to evil, NIV 18 a heart that devises wicked schemes, feet that are quick to rush into evil, CSB 19 a lying witness who gives false testimony, and one who stirs up trouble among brothers. NIV 19 a false witness who pours out lies and a man who stirs up dissension among brothers. CSB 20 My son, keep your father's command, and don't reject your mother's teaching. NIV 20 My son, keep your father's commands and do not forsake your mother's teaching. CSB 21 Always bind them to your heart; tie them around your neck. NIV 21 Bind them upon your heart forever; fasten them around your neck. CSB 22 When you walk here and there, they will guide you; when you lie down, they will watch over you; when you wake up, they will talk to you. NIV 22 When you walk, they will guide you; when you sleep, they will watch over you; when you awake, they will speak to you. CSB 23 For a commandment is a lamp, teaching is a light, and corrective instructions are the way to life. NIV 23 For these commands are a lamp, this teaching is a light, and the corrections of discipline are the way to life, CSB 24 They will protect you from an evil woman, from the flattering tongue of a stranger. NIV 24 keeping you from the immoral woman, from the smooth tongue of the wayward wife. CSB 25 Don't lust in your heart for her beauty or let her captivate you with her eyelashes. NIV 25 Do not lust in your heart after her beauty or let her captivate you with her eyes, CSB 26 For a prostitute's fee is only a loaf of bread, but an adulteress goes after [your] very life. NIV 26 for the prostitute reduces you to a loaf of bread, and the adulteress preys upon your very life. CSB 27 Can a man embrace fire and his clothes not be burned? NIV 27 Can a man scoop fire into his lap without his clothes being burned? CSB 28 Can a man walk on coals without scorching his feet? NIV 28 Can a man walk on hot coals without his feet being scorched? CSB 29 So it is with the one who sleeps with another man's wife; no one who touches her will go unpunished. NIV 29 So is he who sleeps with another man's wife; no one who touches her will go unpunished. CSB 30 People don't despise the thief if he steals to satisfy himself when he is hungry. NIV 30 Men do not despise a thief if he steals to satisfy his hunger when he is starving. CSB 31 Still, if caught, he must pay seven times as much; he must give up all the wealth in his house. NIV 31 Yet if he is caught, he must pay sevenfold, though it costs him all the wealth of his house. CSB 32 The one who commits adultery lacks sense; whoever does so destroys himself. NIV 32 But a man who commits adultery lacks judgment; whoever does so destroys himself. CSB 33 He will get a beating and dishonor, and his disgrace will never be removed. NIV 33 Blows and disgrace are his lot, and his shame will never be wiped away; CSB 34 For jealousy enrages a husband, and he will show no mercy when he takes revenge. NIV 34 for jealousy arouses a husband's fury, and he will show no mercy when he takes revenge. CSB 35 He will not be appeased by anything or be persuaded by lavish gifts. NIV 35 He will not accept any compensation; he will refuse the bribe, however great it is.
