Proverbs 23

When thou sittest
<03427> (8799)
to eat
<03898> (8800)
with a ruler
<04910> (8802)_,
consider
<0995> (8799)
diligently
<0995> (8800)
what [is] before
<06440>
thee:
And put
<07760> (8804)
a knife
<07915>
to thy throat
<03930>_,
if thou [be] a man given
<01167>
to appetite
<05315>_.
Be not desirous
<0183> (8691)
of his dainties
<04303>_:
for they [are] deceitful
<03577>
meat
<03899>_.
Labour
<03021> (8799)
not to be rich
<06238> (8687)_:
cease
<02308> (8798)
from thine own wisdom
<0998>_.
Wilt thou set
<05774> (8686) (8675) <05774> (8799)
thine eyes
<05869>
upon that which is not? for [riches] certainly
<06213> (8800)
make
<06213> (8799)
themselves wings
<03671>_;
they fly away
<05774> (8799) (8675) <05774> (8687)
as an eagle
<05404>
toward heaven
<08064>_.
{set...: Heb. cause thine eyes to fly upon}
Eat
<03898> (8799)
thou not the bread
<03899>
of [him that hath] an evil
<07451>
eye
<05869>_,
neither desire
<0183> (8691)
thou his dainty meats
<04303>_:
For as he thinketh
<08176> (8804)
in his heart
<05315>_,
so [is] he: Eat
<0398> (8798)
and drink
<08354> (8798)_,
saith
<0559> (8799)
he to thee; but his heart
<03820>
[is] not with thee.
The morsel
<06595>
[which] thou hast eaten
<0398> (8804)
shalt thou vomit up
<06958> (8686)_,
and lose
<07843> (8765)
thy sweet
<05273>
words
<01697>_.
Speak
<01696> (8762)
not in the ears
<0241>
of a fool
<03684>_:
for he will despise
<0936> (8799)
the wisdom
<07922>
of thy words
<04405>_.
Remove
<05253> (8686)
not the old
<05769>
landmark
<01366>_;
and enter
<0935> (8799)
not into the fields
<07704>
of the fatherless
<03490>_:
{landmark: or, bound}
For their redeemer
<01350> (8802)
[is] mighty
<02389>_;
he shall plead
<07378> (8799)
their cause
<07379>
with thee.
Apply
<0935> (8685)
thine heart
<03820>
unto instruction
<04148>_,
and thine ears
<0241>
to the words
<0561>
of knowledge
<01847>_.
Withhold
<04513> (8799)
not correction
<04148>
from the child
<05288>_:
for [if] thou beatest
<05221> (8686)
him with the rod
<07626>_,
he shall not die
<04191> (8799)_.
Thou shalt beat
<05221> (8686)
him with the rod
<07626>_,
and shalt deliver
<05337> (8686)
his soul
<05315>
from hell
<07585>_.
My son
<01121>_,
if thine heart
<03820>
be wise
<02449> (8804)_,
my heart
<03820>
shall rejoice
<08055> (8799)_,
even mine
<0589>_.
{even...: or, even I will rejoice}
Yea, my reins
<03629>
shall rejoice
<05937> (8799)_,
when thy lips
<08193>
speak
<01696> (8763)
right things
<04339>_.
Let not thine heart
<03820>
envy
<07065> (8762)
sinners
<02400>_:
but [be thou] in the fear
<03374>
of the LORD
<03068>
all the day
<03117>
long.
For surely there is
<03426>
an end
<0319>_;
and thine expectation
<08615>
shall not be cut off
<03772> (8735)_.
{end: or, reward}
Hear
<08085> (8798)
thou, my son
<01121>_,
and be wise
<02449> (8798)_,
and guide
<0833> (8761)
thine heart
<03820>
in the way
<01870>_.
Be not among winebibbers
<03196> <05433> (8802)_;
among riotous eaters
<02151> (8802)
of flesh
<01320>_:
{of flesh: Heb. of their flesh}
For the drunkard
<05433> (8802)
and the glutton
<02151> (8802)
shall come to poverty
<03423> (8735)_:
and drowsiness
<05124>
shall clothe
<03847> (8686)
[a man] with rags
<07168>_.
Hearken
<08085> (8798)
unto thy father
<01>
that begat
<03205> (8804)
thee, and despise
<0936> (8799)
not thy mother
<0517>
when she is old
<02204> (8804)_.
Buy
<07069> (8798)
the truth
<0571>_,
and sell
<04376> (8799)
[it] not; [also] wisdom
<02451>_,
and instruction
<04148>_,
and understanding
<0998>_.
The father
<01>
of the righteous
<06662>
shall greatly
<01524>
rejoice
<01523> (8799)_:
and he that begetteth
<03205> (8802)
a wise
<02450>
[child] shall have joy
<08055> (8799)
of him.
Thy father
<01>
and thy mother
<0517>
shall be glad
<08055> (8799)_,
and she that bare
<03205> (8802)
thee shall rejoice
<01523> (8799)_.
My son
<01121>_,
give
<05414> (8798)
me thine heart
<03820>_,
and let thine eyes
<05869>
observe
<07521> (8799) <05341> (8799)
my ways
<01870>_.
For a whore
<02181> (8802)
[is] a deep
<06013>
ditch
<07745>_;
and a strange woman
<05237>
[is] a narrow
<06862>
pit
<0875>_.
She also lieth in wait
<0693> (8799)
as [for] a prey
<02863>_,
and increaseth
<03254> (8686)
the transgressors
<0898> (8802)
among men
<0120>_.
{as for...: or, as a robber}
Who hath woe
<0188>_?
who hath sorrow
<017>_?
who hath contentions
<04079> (8675) <04066>_?
who hath babbling
<07879>_?
who hath wounds
<06482>
without cause
<02600>_?
who hath redness
<02448>
of eyes
<05869>_?
They that tarry long
<0309> (8764)
at the wine
<03196>_;
they that go
<0935> (8802)
to seek
<02713> (8800)
mixed wine
<04469>_.
Look
<07200> (8799)
not thou upon the wine
<03196>
when it is red
<0119> (8691)_,
when it giveth
<05414> (8799)
his colour
<05869>
in the cup
<03563> (8675) <03599>_,
[when] it moveth
<01980> (8691)
itself aright
<04339>_.
At the last
<0319>
it biteth
<05391> (8799)
like a serpent
<05175>_,
and stingeth
<06567> (8686)
like an adder
<06848>_.
{an...: or, a cockatrice}
Thine eyes
<05869>
shall behold
<07200> (8799)
strange women
<02114> (8801)_,
and thine heart
<03820>
shall utter
<01696> (8762)
perverse things
<08419>_.
Yea, thou shalt be as he that lieth down
<07901> (8802)
in the midst
<03820>
of the sea
<03220>_,
or as he that lieth
<07901> (8802)
upon the top
<07218>
of a mast
<02260>_.
{the midst...: Heb. the heart of the sea}
They have stricken
<05221> (8689)
me, [shalt thou say, and] I was not sick
<02470> (8804)_;
they have beaten
<01986> (8804)
me, [and] I felt
<03045> (8804)
[it] not: when shall I awake
<06974> (8686)_?
I will seek
<01245> (8762)
it yet
<03254> (8686)
again. {I felt...: Heb. I knew it not}
