Geneva Study Bible
   1: My son, if thou art become surety for thy neighbor, If thou hast stricken thy hands for a stranger;
   2: Thou art snared with the words of thy mouth, Thou art taken with the words of thy mouth.
   3: Do this now, my son, and deliver thyself, Seeing thou art come into the hand of thy neighbor: Go, humble thyself, and importune thy neighbor;
   4: Give not sleep to thine eyes, Nor slumber to thine eyelids;
   5: Deliver thyself as a roe from the hand [of the hunter], And as a bird from the hand of the fowler.
   6: Go to the ant, thou sluggard; Consider her ways, and be wise:
   7: Which having no chief, Overseer, or ruler,
   8: Provideth her bread in the summer, And gathereth her food in the harvest.
   9: How long wilt thou sleep, O sluggard? When wilt thou arise out of thy sleep?
   10: [Yet] a little sleep, a little slumber, A little folding of the hands to sleep:
   11: So shall thy poverty come as a robber, And thy want as an armed man.
   12: A worthless person, a man of iniquity, Is he that walketh with a perverse mouth;
   13: That winketh with his eyes, that speaketh with his feet, That maketh signs with his fingers;
   14: In whose heart is perverseness, Who deviseth evil continually, Who soweth discord.
   15: Therefore shall his calamity come suddenly; On a sudden shall he be broken, and that without remedy.
   16: There are six things which Jehovah hateth; Yea, seven which are an abomination unto him:
   17: Haughty eyes, a lying tongue, And hands that shed innocent blood;
   18: A heart that deviseth wicked purposes, Feet that are swift in running to mischief,
   19: A false witness that uttereth lies, And he that soweth discord among brethren.
   20: My son, keep the commandment of thy father, And forsake not the law of thy mother:
   21: Bind them continually upon thy heart; Tie them about thy neck.
   22: When thou walkest, it shall lead thee; When thou sleepest, it shall watch over thee; And when thou awakest, it shall talk with thee.
   23: For the commandment is a lamp; and the law is light; And reproofs of instruction are the way of life:
   24: To keep thee from the evil woman, From the flattery of the foreigner's tongue.
   25: Lust not after her beauty in thy heart; Neither let her take thee with her eyelids.
   26: For on account of a harlot [a man is brought] to a piece of bread; And the adulteress hunteth for the precious life.
   27: Can a man take fire in his bosom, And his clothes not be burned?
   28: Or can one walk upon hot coals, And his feet not be scorched?
   29: So he that goeth in to his neighbor's wife; Whosoever toucheth her shall not be unpunished.
   30: Men do not despise a thief, if he steal To satisfy himself when he is hungry:
   31: But if he be found, he shall restore sevenfold; He shall give all the substance of his house.
   32: He that committeth adultery with a woman is void of understanding: He doeth it who would destroy his own soul.
   33: Wounds and dishonor shall he get; And his reproach shall not be wiped away.
   34: For jealousy is the rage of a man; And he will not spare in the day of vengeance.
   35: He will not regard any ransom; Neither will he rest content, though thou givest many gifts.
