Proverbs 5:3-23

For the lips
<08193>
of a strange woman
<02114> (8801)
drop
<05197> (8799)
[as] an honeycomb
<05317>_,
and her mouth
<02441>
[is] smoother
<02509>
than oil
<08081>_:
{mouth: Heb. palate}
But her end
<0319>
is bitter
<04751>
as wormwood
<03939>_,
sharp
<02299>
as a twoedged
<06310>
sword
<02719>_.
Her feet
<07272>
go down
<03381> (8802)
to death
<04194>_;
her steps
<06806>
take hold
<08551> (8799)
on hell
<07585>_.
Lest thou shouldest ponder
<06424> (8762)
the path
<0734>
of life
<02416>_,
her ways
<04570>
are moveable
<05128> (8804)_,
[that] thou canst not know
<03045> (8799)
[them].
Hear
<08085> (8798)
me now therefore, O ye children
<01121>_,
and depart
<05493> (8799)
not from the words
<0561>
of my mouth
<06310>_.
Remove
<07368> (0)
thy way
<01870>
far
<07368> (8685)
from her, and come not nigh
<07126> (8799)
the door
<06607>
of her house
<01004>_:
Lest thou give
<05414> (8799)
thine honour
<01935>
unto others
<0312>_,
and thy years
<08141>
unto the cruel
<0394>_:
Lest strangers
<02114> (8801)
be filled
<07646> (8799)
with thy wealth
<03581>_;
and thy labours
<06089>
[be] in the house
<01004>
of a stranger
<05237>_;
{thy wealth: Heb. thy strength}
And thou mourn
<05098> (8804)
at the last
<0319>_,
when thy flesh
<01320>
and thy body
<07607>
are consumed
<03615> (8800)_,
And say
<0559> (8804)_,
How have I hated
<08130> (8804)
instruction
<04148>_,
and my heart
<03820>
despised
<05006> (8804)
reproof
<08433>_;
And have not obeyed
<08085> (8804)
the voice
<06963>
of my teachers
<03384> (8688)_,
nor inclined
<05186> (8689)
mine ear
<0241>
to them that instructed
<03925> (8764)
me!
I was almost
<04592>
in all evil
<07451>
in the midst
<08432>
of the congregation
<06951>
and assembly
<05712>_.
Drink
<08354> (8798)
waters
<04325>
out of thine own cistern
<0953>_,
and running waters
<05140> (8802)
out of
<08432>
thine own well
<0875>_.
Let thy fountains
<04599>
be dispersed
<06327> (8799)
abroad
<02351>_,
[and] rivers
<06388>
of waters
<04325>
in the streets
<07339>_.
Let them be only thine own, and not strangers
<02114> (8801)_'
with thee.
Let thy fountain
<04726>
be blessed
<01288> (8803)_:
and rejoice
<08055> (8798)
with the wife
<0802>
of thy youth
<05271>_.
[Let her be as] the loving
<0158>
hind
<0365>
and pleasant
<02580>
roe
<03280>_;
let her breasts
<01717>
satisfy
<07301> (8762)
thee at all times
<06256>_;
and be thou ravished
<07686> (8799)
always
<08548>
with her love
<0160>_.
{satisfy...: Heb. water thee} {be thou...: Heb. err thou always in her love}
And why wilt thou, my son
<01121>_,
be ravished
<07686> (8799)
with a strange woman
<02114> (8801)_,
and embrace
<02263> (8762)
the bosom
<02436>
of a stranger
<05237>_?
For the ways
<01870>
of man
<0376>
[are] before
<05227>
the eyes
<05869>
of the LORD
<03068>_,
and he pondereth
<06424> (8764)
all his goings
<04570>_.
His own iniquities
<05771>
shall take
<03920> (8799)
the wicked
<07563>
himself, and he shall be holden
<08551> (8735)
with the cords
<02256>
of his sins
<02403>_.
{sins: Heb. sin}
He shall die
<04191> (8799)
without instruction
<04148>_;
and in the greatness
<07230>
of his folly
<0200>
he shall go astray
<07686> (8799)_.

Proverbs 6:20-35

My son
<01121>_,
keep
<05341> (8798)
thy father's
<01>
commandment
<04687>_,
and forsake
<05203> (8799)
not the law
<08451>
of thy mother
<0517>_:
Bind
<07194> (8798)
them continually
<08548>
upon thine heart
<03820>_,
[and] tie
<06029> (8798)
them about thy neck
<01621>_.
When thou goest
<01980> (8692)_,
it shall lead
<05148> (8686)
thee; when thou sleepest
<07901> (8800)_,
it shall keep
<08104> (8799)
thee; and [when] thou awakest
<06974> (8689)_,
it shall talk
<07878> (8799)
with thee.
For the commandment
<04687>
[is] a lamp
<05216>_;
and the law
<08451>
[is] light
<0216>_;
and reproofs
<08433>
of instruction
<04148>
[are] the way
<01870>
of life
<02416>_:
{lamp: or, candle}
To keep
<08104> (8800)
thee from the evil
<07451>
woman
<0802>_,
from the flattery
<02513>
of the tongue
<03956>
of a strange woman
<05237>_.
{of the...: or, of the strange tongue}
Lust
<02530> (8799)
not after her beauty
<03308>
in thine heart
<03824>_;
neither let her take
<03947> (8799)
thee with her eyelids
<06079>_.
For by means of
<01157>
a whorish
<02181> (8802)
woman
<0802>
[a man is brought] to a piece
<03603>
of bread
<03899>_:
and the adulteress
<0802> <0376>
will hunt
<06679> (8799)
for the precious
<03368>
life
<05315>_.
{the adulteress: Heb. the woman of a man, or, a man's wife}
Can a man
<0376>
take
<02846> (8799)
fire
<0784>
in his bosom
<02436>_,
and his clothes
<0899>
not be burned
<08313> (8735)_?
Can one
<0376>
go
<01980> (8762)
upon hot coals
<01513>_,
and his feet
<07272>
not be burned
<03554> (8735)_?
So he that goeth in
<0935> (8802)
to his neighbour's
<07453>
wife
<0802>_;
whosoever toucheth
<05060> (8802)
her shall not be innocent
<05352> (8735)_.
[Men] do not despise
<0936> (8799)
a thief
<01590>_,
if he steal
<01589> (8799)
to satisfy
<04390> (8763)
his soul
<05315>
when he is hungry
<07456> (8799)_;
But [if] he be found
<04672> (8738)_,
he shall restore
<07999> (8762)
sevenfold
<07659>_;
he shall give
<05414> (8799)
all the substance
<01952>
of his house
<01004>_.
[But] whoso committeth adultery
<05003> (8802)
with a woman
<0802>
lacketh
<02638>
understanding
<03820>_:
he [that] doeth
<06213> (8799)
it destroyeth
<07843> (8688)
his own soul
<05315>_.
{understanding: Heb. heart}
A wound
<05061>
and dishonour
<07036>
shall he get
<04672> (8799)_;
and his reproach
<02781>
shall not be wiped away
<04229> (8735)_.
For jealousy
<07068>
[is] the rage
<02534>
of a man
<01397>_:
therefore he will not spare
<02550> (8799)
in the day
<03117>
of vengeance
<05359>_.
He will not regard
<05375> (8799) <06440>
any ransom
<03724>_;
neither will he rest content
<014> (8799)_,
though thou givest many
<07235> (8686)
gifts
<07810>_.
{He will...: Heb. He will not accept the face of any ransom}

Proverbs 7:4-27

Say
<0559> (8798)
unto wisdom
<02451>_,
Thou [art] my sister
<0269>_;
and call
<07121> (8799)
understanding
<0998>
[thy] kinswoman
<04129>_:
That they may keep
<08104> (8800)
thee from the strange
<02114> (8801)
woman
<0802>_,
from the stranger
<05237>
[which] flattereth
<02505> (8689)
with her words
<0561>_.
For at the window
<02474>
of my house
<01004>
I looked
<08259> (8738)
through my casement
<0822>_,
And beheld
<07200> (8799)
among the simple ones
<06612>_,
I discerned
<0995> (8799)
among the youths
<01121>_,
a young man
<05288>
void
<02638>
of understanding
<03820>_,
{the youths: Heb. the sons}
Passing through
<05674> (8802)
the street
<07784>
near
<0681>
her corner
<06434>_;
and he went
<06805> (8799)
the way
<01870>
to her house
<01004>_,
In the twilight
<05399>_,
in the evening
<03117> <06153>_,
in the black
<0380>
and dark
<0653>
night
<03915>_:
{in the evening: Heb. in the evening of days}
And, behold, there met
<07125> (8800)
him a woman
<0802>
[with] the attire
<07897>
of an harlot
<02181> (8802)_,
and subtil
<05341> (8803)
of heart
<03820>_.
(She [is] loud
<01993> (8802)
and stubborn
<05637> (8802)_;
her feet
<07272>
abide
<07931> (8799)
not in her house
<01004>_:
Now
<06471>
[is she] without
<02351>_,
now
<06471>
in the streets
<07339>_,
and lieth in wait
<0693> (8799)
at
<0681>
every corner
<06438>.)
So she caught
<02388> (8689)
him, and kissed
<05401> (8804)
him, [and] with an impudent
<05810> (8689)
face
<06440>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto him, {with...: Heb. she strengthened her face and said}
[I have] peace
<08002>
offerings
<02077>
with me; this day
<03117>
have I payed
<07999> (8765)
my vows
<05088>_.
{I have...: Heb. Peace offerings are upon me}
Therefore came I forth
<03318> (8804)
to meet
<07125> (8800)
thee, diligently to seek
<07836> (8763)
thy face
<06440>_,
and I have found
<04672> (8799)
thee.
I have decked
<07234> (8804)
my bed
<06210>
with coverings
<04765>
of tapestry, with carved
<02405>
[works], with fine linen
<0330>
of Egypt
<04714>_.
I have perfumed
<05130> (8804)
my bed
<04904>
with myrrh
<04753>_,
aloes
<0174>_,
and cinnamon
<07076>_.
Come
<03212> (8798)_,
let us take our fill
<07301> (8799)
of love
<01730>
until the morning
<01242>_:
let us solace
<05965> (8691)
ourselves with loves
<0159>_.
For the goodman
<0376>
[is] not at home
<01004>_,
he is gone
<01980> (8804)
a long
<07350>
journey
<01870>_:
He hath taken
<03947> (8804)
a bag
<06872>
of money
<03701>
with him
<03027>_,
[and] will come
<0935> (8799)
home
<01004>
at the day
<03117>
appointed
<03677>_.
{with...: Heb. in his hand} {the day...: or, the new moon}
With her much
<07230>
fair speech
<03948>
she caused him to yield
<05186> (8689)_,
with the flattering
<02506>
of her lips
<08193>
she forced
<05080> (8686)
him.
He goeth
<01980> (8802)
after
<0310>
her straightway
<06597>_,
as an ox
<07794>
goeth
<0935> (8799)
to the slaughter
<02874>_,
or as a fool
<0191>
to the correction
<04148>
of the stocks
<05914>_;
{straightway: Heb. suddenly}
Till a dart
<02671>
strike
<06398> (8762)
through his liver
<03516>_;
as a bird
<06833>
hasteth
<04116> (8763)
to the snare
<06341>_,
and knoweth
<03045> (8804)
not that it [is] for his life
<05315>_.
Hearken
<08085> (8798)
unto me now therefore, O ye children
<01121>_,
and attend
<07181> (8685)
to the words
<0561>
of my mouth
<06310>_.
Let not thine heart
<03820>
decline
<07847> (8799)
to her ways
<01870>_,
go not astray
<08582> (8799)
in her paths
<05410>_.
For she hath cast down
<05307> (8689)
many
<07227>
wounded
<02491>_:
yea, many strong
<06099>
[men] have been slain
<02026> (8803)
by her.
Her house
<01004>
[is] the way
<01870>
to hell
<07585>_,
going down
<03381> (8802)
to the chambers
<02315>
of death
<04194>_.

Proverbs 22:14

The mouth
<06310>
of strange women
<02114> (8801)
[is] a deep
<06013>
pit
<07745>_:
he that is abhorred
<02194> (8803)
of the LORD
<03068>
shall fall
<05307> (8799)
therein.

Proverbs 23:26-28

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}

Proverbs 30:20-23

Such [is] the way
<01870>
of an adulterous
<05003> (8764)
woman
<0802>_;
she eateth
<0398> (8804)_,
and wipeth
<04229> (8804)
her mouth
<06310>_,
and saith
<0559> (8804)_,
I have done
<06466> (8804)
no wickedness
<0205>_.
For three
<07969>
[things] the earth
<0776>
is disquieted
<07264> (8804)_,
and for four
<0702>
[which] it cannot
<03201> (8799)
bear
<05375> (8800)_:
For a servant
<05650>
when he reigneth
<04427> (8799)_;
and a fool
<05036>
when he is filled
<07646> (8799)
with meat
<03899>_;
For an odious
<08130> (8803)
[woman] when she is married
<01166> (8735)_;
and an handmaid
<08198>
that is heir
<03423> (8799)
to her mistress
<01404>_.

Proverbs 31:3

Give
<05414> (8799)
not thy strength
<02428>
unto women
<0802>_,
nor thy ways
<01870>
to that which destroyeth
<04229> (8687)
kings
<04428>_.
