Proverbs 5

LXX 1 son, attend to my wisdom, and apply thine ear to my words; NIV 1 My son, pay attention to my wisdom, turn your ear to my words of insight, LXX 2 that thou mayest keep good understanding, and the discretion of my lips gives thee a charge. Give no heed to a worthless woman; NIV 2 that you may maintain discretion and your lips may preserve knowledge. LXX 3 for honey drops from the lips of a harlot, who for a season pleases thy palate: NIV 3 For the lips of the adulterous woman drip honey, and her speech is smoother than oil; LXX 4 but afterwards thou wilt find her more bitter than gall, and sharper than a two-edged sword. NIV 4 but in the end she is bitter as gall, sharp as a double-edged sword. LXX 5 For the feet of folly lead those who deal with her down to the grave with death; and her steps are not established. NIV 5 Her feet go down to death; her steps lead straight to the grave. LXX 6 For she goes not upon the paths of life; but her ways are slippery, and not easily known. NIV 6 She gives no thought to the way of life; her paths wander aimlessly, but she does not know it. LXX 7 Now then, son, hear me, and make not my words of none effect. NIV 7 Now then, my sons, listen to me; do not turn aside from what I say. LXX 8 Remove thy way far from her; draw not near to the doors of her house: NIV 8 Keep to a path far from her, do not go near the door of her house, LXX 9 lest thou give away thy life to others, and thy substance to the merciless: NIV 9 lest you lose your honor to others and your dignity to one who is cruel, LXX 10 lest strangers be filled with thy strength, and thy labours come into the houses of strangers; NIV 10 lest strangers feast on your wealth and your toil enrich the house of another. LXX 11 And thou repent at last, when the flesh of thy body is consumed, NIV 11 At the end of your life you will groan, when your flesh and body are spent. LXX 12 and thou shalt say, How have I hated instruction, and my heart avoided reproofs! NIV 12 You will say, “How I hated discipline! How my heart spurned correction! LXX 13 I heard not the voice of him that instructed me, and taught me, neither did I apply mine ear. NIV 13 I would not obey my teachers or turn my ear to my instructors. LXX 14 I was almost in all evil in the midst of the congregation and assembly. NIV 14 And I was soon in serious trouble in the assembly of God’s people.” LXX 15 Drink waters out of thine own vessels, and out of thine own springing wells. NIV 15 Drink water from your own cistern, running water from your own well. LXX 16 Let not waters out of thy fountain be spilt by thee, but let thy waters go into thy streets. NIV 16 Should your springs overflow in the streets, your streams of water in the public squares? LXX 17 Let them be only thine own, and let no stranger partake with thee. NIV 17 Let them be yours alone, never to be shared with strangers. LXX 18 Let thy fountain of water be thine own; and rejoice with the wife of thy youth. NIV 18 May your fountain be blessed, and may you rejoice in the wife of your youth. LXX 19 Let loving hart and thy graceful colt company with thee, and let her be considered thine own, and be with thee at all times; for ravished with her love thou shalt be greatly increased. NIV 19 A loving doe, a graceful deer— may her breasts satisfy you always, may you ever be intoxicated with her love. LXX 20 Be not intimate with a strange woman, neither fold thyself in the arms of a woman not thine own. NIV 20 Why, my son, be intoxicated with another man’s wife? Why embrace the bosom of a wayward woman? LXX 21 For the ways of a man are before the eyes of God, and he looks on all his paths. NIV 21 For your ways are in full view of the LORD, and he examines all your paths. LXX 22 Iniquities ensnare a man, and every one is bound in the chains of his own sins. NIV 22 The evil deeds of the wicked ensnare them; the cords of their sins hold them fast. LXX 23 Such a man dies with the uninstructed; and he is cast forth from the abundance of his own substance, and has perished through folly. NIV 23 For lack of discipline they will die, led astray by their own great folly.
