Proverbs 6:1-19

NRS 1 My child, if you have given your pledge to your neighbor, if you have bound yourself to another, NIV 1 My son, if you have put up security for your neighbor, if you have struck hands in pledge for another, NRS 2 you are snared by the utterance of your lips, caught by the words of your mouth. NIV 2 if you have been trapped by what you said, ensnared by the words of your mouth, NRS 3 So do this, my child, and save yourself, for you have come into your neighbor's power: go, hurry, 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! NRS 4 Give your eyes no sleep and your eyelids no slumber; NIV 4 Allow no sleep to your eyes, no slumber to your eyelids. NRS 5 save yourself like a gazelle from the hunter, like a bird from the hand of the fowler. NIV 5 Free yourself, like a gazelle from the hand of the hunter, like a bird from the snare of the fowler. NRS 6 Go to the ant, you lazybones; consider its ways, and be wise. NIV 6 Go to the ant, you sluggard; consider its ways and be wise! NRS 7 Without having any chief or officer or ruler, NIV 7 It has no commander, no overseer or ruler, NRS 8 it prepares its food in summer, and gathers its sustenance in harvest. NIV 8 yet it stores its provisions in summer and gathers its food at harvest. NRS 9 How long will you lie there, O lazybones? When will you rise from your sleep? NIV 9 How long will you lie there, you sluggard? When will you get up from your sleep? NRS 10 A little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to rest, NIV 10 A little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to rest-- NRS 11 and poverty will come upon you like a robber, and want, like an armed warrior.

NRS 15 on such a one calamity will descend suddenly; in a moment, damage beyond repair. NIV 15 Therefore disaster will overtake him in an instant; he will suddenly be destroyed--without remedy. NRS 16 There are six things that the Lord hates, seven that are an abomination to him: NIV 16 There are six things the LORD hates, seven that are detestable to him: NRS 17 haughty eyes, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, NIV 17 haughty eyes, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood, NRS 18 a heart that devises wicked plans, feet that hurry to run to evil, NIV 18 a heart that devises wicked schemes, feet that are quick to rush into evil, NRS 19 a lying witness who testifies falsely, and one who sows discord in a family.
