   1: My son, if thou be surety for thy friend, if thou hast stricken thy hand with 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, deliver thyself, when thou art come into the hand of thy friend; go, humble thyself, and make sure thy friend.
   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 guide, overseer, or ruler,
   8: Provideth her meat 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 one that travelleth, and thy want as an armed man.
   12: A naughty person, a wicked man, walketh with a froward mouth.
   13: He winketh with his eyes, he speaketh with his feet, he teacheth with his fingers;
   14: Frowardness is in his heart, he deviseth mischief continually; he soweth discord.
   15: Therefore shall his calamity come suddenly; suddenly shall he be broken without remedy.
   16: These six things doth the LORD hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him:
   17: A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood,
   18: An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief,
   19: A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren.
   20: My son, keep thy father's commandment, and forsake not the law of thy mother:
   21: Bind them continually upon thine heart, and tie them about thy neck.
   22: When thou goest, it shall lead thee; when thou sleepest, it shall keep 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 tongue of a strange woman.
   25: Lust not after her beauty in thine heart; neither let her take thee with her eyelids.
   26: For by means of a whorish woman a man is brought to a piece of bread: and the adulteress will hunt for the precious life.
   27: Can a man take fire in his bosom, and his clothes not be burned?
   28: Can one go upon hot coals, and his feet not be burned?
   29: So he that goeth in to his neighbour's wife; whosoever toucheth her shall not be innocent.
   30: Men do not despise a thief, if he steal to satisfy his soul when he is hungry;
   31: But if he be found, he shall restore sevenfold; he shall give all the substance of his house.
   32: But whoso committeth adultery with a woman lacketh understanding: he that doeth it destroyeth his own soul.
   33: A wound and dishonour shall he get; and his reproach shall not be wiped away.
   34: For jealousy is the rage of a man: therefore 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.
