Remove thy way far from her, and come not nigh the door of her house:
Lest thou give thy honor to others, and thy years to the cruel:
Lest strangers be filled with thy wealth; and thy labors [be] in the house of a stranger;
And thou mourn at the last, when thy flesh and thy body are consumed,
And say, How have I hated instruction, and my heart despised reproof;
And have not obeyed the voice of my teachers, nor inclined my ear to them that instructed me!
I was almost in all evil in the midst of the congregation and assembly.
Drink waters out of thy own cistern, and running waters out of thy own well.
Let thy fountains be dispersed abroad, [and] rivers of waters in the streets.
Let them be only thy own, and not for strangers with thee.
Let thy fountain be blessed: and rejoice with the wife of thy youth.
