Proverbs 5

NLT 1 My son, pay attention to my wisdom; listen carefully to my wise counsel. NIV 1 My son, pay attention to my wisdom, turn your ear to my words of insight, NLT 2 Then you will show discernment, and your lips will express what you’ve learned. NIV 2 that you may maintain discretion and your lips may preserve knowledge. NLT 3 For the lips of an immoral woman are as sweet as honey, and her mouth is smoother than oil. NIV 3 For the lips of the adulterous woman drip honey, and her speech is smoother than oil; NLT 4 But in the end she is as bitter as poison, as dangerous as a double-edged sword. NIV 4 but in the end she is bitter as gall, sharp as a double-edged sword. NLT 5 Her feet go down to death; her steps lead straight to the grave. NIV 5 Her feet go down to death; her steps lead straight to the grave. NLT 6 For she cares nothing about the path to life. She staggers down a crooked trail and doesn’t realize it. NIV 6 She gives no thought to the way of life; her paths wander aimlessly, but she does not know it. NLT 7 So now, my sons, listen to me. Never stray from what I am about to say: NIV 7 Now then, my sons, listen to me; do not turn aside from what I say. NLT 8 Stay away from her! Don’t go near the door of her house! NIV 8 Keep to a path far from her, do not go near the door of her house, NLT 9 If you do, you will lose your honor and will lose to merciless people all you have achieved. NIV 9 lest you lose your honor to others and your dignity to one who is cruel, NLT 10 Strangers will consume your wealth, and someone else will enjoy the fruit of your labor. NIV 10 lest strangers feast on your wealth and your toil enrich the house of another. NLT 11 In the end you will groan in anguish when disease consumes your body. NIV 11 At the end of your life you will groan, when your flesh and body are spent. NLT 12 You will say, “How I hated discipline! If only I had not ignored all the warnings! NIV 12 You will say, “How I hated discipline! How my heart spurned correction! NLT 13 Oh, why didn’t I listen to my teachers? Why didn’t I pay attention to my instructors? NIV 13 I would not obey my teachers or turn my ear to my instructors. NLT 14 I have come to the brink of utter ruin, and now I must face public disgrace.” NIV 14 And I was soon in serious trouble in the assembly of God’s people.” NLT 15 Drink water from your own well— share your love only with your wife. NIV 15 Drink water from your own cistern, running water from your own well. NLT 16 Why spill the water of your springs in the streets, having sex with just anyone? NIV 16 Should your springs overflow in the streets, your streams of water in the public squares? NLT 17 You should reserve it for yourselves. Never share it with strangers. NIV 17 Let them be yours alone, never to be shared with strangers. NLT 18 Let your wife be a fountain of blessing for you. Rejoice in the wife of your youth. NIV 18 May your fountain be blessed, and may you rejoice in the wife of your youth. NLT 19 She is a loving deer, a graceful doe. Let her breasts satisfy you always. May you always be captivated by her love. NIV 19 A loving doe, a graceful deer— may her breasts satisfy you always, may you ever be intoxicated with her love. NLT 20 Why be captivated, my son, by an immoral woman, or fondle the breasts of a promiscuous woman? NIV 20 Why, my son, be intoxicated with another man’s wife? Why embrace the bosom of a wayward woman? NLT 21 For the LORD sees clearly what a man does, examining every path he takes. NIV 21 For your ways are in full view of the LORD, and he examines all your paths. NLT 22 An evil man is held captive by his own sins; they are ropes that catch and hold him. NIV 22 The evil deeds of the wicked ensnare them; the cords of their sins hold them fast. NLT 23 He will die for lack of self-control; he will be lost because of his great foolishness. NIV 23 For lack of discipline they will die, led astray by their own great folly.
