Proverbs 6:20

Warning against Adultery

20 My son, keep your father's command, and don't reject your mother's teaching.[a]

Proverbs 6:20 In-Context

18 a heart that plots wicked schemes, feet eager to run to evil,
19 a lying witness who gives false testimony, and one who stirs up trouble among brothers.
20 My son, keep your father's command, and don't reject your mother's teaching.
21 Always bind them to your heart; tie them around your neck.
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.
