Proverbs 6

YLT 1 My son! if thou hast been surety for thy friend, Hast stricken for a stranger thy hand, NIV 1 My son, if you have put up security for your neighbor, if you have struck hands in pledge for another, YLT 2 Hast been snared with sayings of thy mouth, Hast been captured with sayings of thy mouth, NIV 2 if you have been trapped by what you said, ensnared by the words of your mouth, YLT 3 Do this now, my son, and be delivered, For thou hast come into the hand of thy friend. Go, trample on thyself, and strengthen thy friend, 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! YLT 4 Give not sleep to thine eyes, And slumber to thine eyelids, NIV 4 Allow no sleep to your eyes, no slumber to your eyelids. YLT 5 Be delivered as a roe from the hand, And as a bird from the hand of a fowler. NIV 5 Free yourself, like a gazelle from the hand of the hunter, like a bird from the snare of the fowler. YLT 6 Go unto the ant, O slothful one, See her ways and be wise; NIV 6 Go to the ant, you sluggard; consider its ways and be wise! YLT 7 Which hath not captain, overseer, and ruler, NIV 7 It has no commander, no overseer or ruler, YLT 8 She doth prepare in summer her bread, She hath gathered in harvest her food. NIV 8 yet it stores its provisions in summer and gathers its food at harvest. YLT 9 Till when, O slothful one, dost thou lie? When dost thou arise from thy sleep? NIV 9 How long will you lie there, you sluggard? When will you get up from your sleep? YLT 10 A little sleep, a little slumber, A little clasping of the hands to rest, NIV 10 A little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to rest-- YLT 11 And thy poverty hath come as a traveller, And thy want as an armed man. NIV 11 and poverty will come on you like a bandit and scarcity like an armed man. YLT 12 A man of worthlessness, a man of iniquity, Walking [with] perverseness of mouth, NIV 12 A scoundrel and villain, who goes about with a corrupt mouth, YLT 13 Winking with his eyes, speaking with his feet, Directing with his fingers, NIV 13 who winks with his eye, signals with his feet and motions with his fingers, YLT 14 Frowardness [is] in his heart, devising evil at all times, Contentions he sendeth forth. NIV 14 who plots evil with deceit in his heart-- he always stirs up dissension. YLT 15 Therefore suddenly cometh his calamity, Instantly he is broken -- and no healing. NIV 15 Therefore disaster will overtake him in an instant; he will suddenly be destroyed--without remedy. YLT 16 These six hath Jehovah hated, Yea, seven [are] abominations to His soul. NIV 16 There are six things the LORD hates, seven that are detestable to him: YLT 17 Eyes high -- tongues false -- And hands shedding innocent blood -- NIV 17 haughty eyes, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood, YLT 18 A heart devising thoughts of vanity -- Feet hasting to run to evil -- NIV 18 a heart that devises wicked schemes, feet that are quick to rush into evil, YLT 19 A false witness [who] doth breathe out lies -- And one sending forth contentions between brethren. NIV 19 a false witness who pours out lies and a man who stirs up dissension among brothers. YLT 20 Keep, my son, the command of thy father, And leave not the law of thy mother. NIV 20 My son, keep your father's commands and do not forsake your mother's teaching. YLT 21 Bind them on thy heart continually, Tie them on thy neck. NIV 21 Bind them upon your heart forever; fasten them around your neck. YLT 22 In thy going up and down, it leadeth thee, In thy lying down, it watcheth over thee, And thou hast awaked -- it talketh [with] thee. 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. YLT 23 For a lamp [is] the command, And the law a light, And a way of life [are] reproofs of instruction, NIV 23 For these commands are a lamp, this teaching is a light, and the corrections of discipline are the way to life, YLT 24 To preserve thee from an evil woman, From the flattery of the tongue of a strange woman. NIV 24 keeping you from the immoral woman, from the smooth tongue of the wayward wife. YLT 25 Desire not her beauty in thy heart, And let her not take thee with her eyelids. NIV 25 Do not lust in your heart after her beauty or let her captivate you with her eyes, YLT 26 For a harlot consumeth unto a cake of bread, And an adulteress the precious soul hunteth. NIV 26 for the prostitute reduces you to a loaf of bread, and the adulteress preys upon your very life. YLT 27 Doth a man take fire into his bosom, And are his garments not burnt? NIV 27 Can a man scoop fire into his lap without his clothes being burned? YLT 28 Doth a man walk on the hot coals, And are his feet not scorched? NIV 28 Can a man walk on hot coals without his feet being scorched? YLT 29 So [is] he who hath gone in unto the wife of his neighbour, None who doth touch her is innocent. NIV 29 So is he who sleeps with another man's wife; no one who touches her will go unpunished. YLT 30 They do not despise the thief, When he stealeth to fill his soul when he is hungry, NIV 30 Men do not despise a thief if he steals to satisfy his hunger when he is starving. YLT 31 And being found he repayeth sevenfold, All the substance of his house he giveth. NIV 31 Yet if he is caught, he must pay sevenfold, though it costs him all the wealth of his house. YLT 32 He who committeth adultery [with] a woman lacketh heart, He is destroying his soul who doth it. NIV 32 But a man who commits adultery lacks judgment; whoever does so destroys himself. YLT 33 A stroke and shame he doth find, And his reproach is not wiped away, NIV 33 Blows and disgrace are his lot, and his shame will never be wiped away; YLT 34 For jealousy [is] the fury of a man, And he doth not spare in a day of vengeance. NIV 34 for jealousy arouses a husband's fury, and he will show no mercy when he takes revenge. YLT 35 He accepteth not the appearance of any atonement, Yea, he doth not consent, Though thou dost multiply bribes! NIV 35 He will not accept any compensation; he will refuse the bribe, however great it is.
