Geneva Study Bible
   1: My son, if you have become collateral for your neighbor, If you have struck your hands in pledge for a stranger;
   2: You are trapped by the words of your mouth. You are ensnared with the words of your mouth.
   3: Do this now, my son, and deliver yourself, Seeing you have come into the hand of your neighbor. Go, humble yourself. Press your plea with your neighbor.
   4: Give no sleep to your eyes, Nor slumber to your eyelids.
   5: Free yourself, like a gazelle from the hand of the hunter, Like a bird from the snare of the fowler.
   6: Go to the ant, you sluggard. Consider her ways, and be wise;
   7: Which having no chief, Overseer, or ruler,
   8: Provides her bread in the summer, And gathers her food in the harvest.
   9: How long will you sleep, sluggard? When will you arise out of your sleep?
   10: A little sleep, a little slumber, A little folding of the hands to sleep:
   11: So your poverty will come as a robber, And your scarcity as an armed man.
   12: A worthless person, a man of iniquity, Is he who walks with a perverse mouth;
   13: Who winks with his eyes, who signals with his feet, Who motions with his fingers;
   14: In whose heart is perverseness, Who devises evil continually, Who always sows discord.
   15: Therefore his calamity will come suddenly. He will be broken suddenly, and that without remedy.
   16: There are six things which Yahweh hates; Yes, seven which are an abomination to him:
   17: Haughty eyes, a lying tongue, Hands that shed innocent blood;
   18: A heart that devises wicked schemes, Feet that are swift in running to mischief,
   19: A false witness who utters lies, And he who sows discord among brothers.
   20: My son, keep your father's commandment, And don't forsake your mother's teaching.
   21: Bind them continually on your heart. Tie them around your neck.
   22: When you walk, it will lead you. When you sleep, it will watch over you. When you awake, it will talk with you.
   23: For the commandment is a lamp, And the law is light. Reproofs of instruction are the way of life,
   24: To keep you from the immoral woman, From the flattery of the wayward wife's tongue.
   25: Don't lust after her beauty in your heart, Neither let her captivate you with her eyelids.
   26: For a prostitute reduces you to a piece of bread. The adulteress hunts for your precious life.
   27: Can a man scoop fire into his lap, And his clothes not be burned?
   28: Or can one walk on hot coals, And his feet not be scorched?
   29: So is he who goes in to his neighbor's wife. Whoever touches her will not be unpunished.
   30: Men don't despise a thief, If he steals to satisfy himself when he is hungry:
   31: But if he be found, he shall restore seven times. He shall give all the wealth of his house.
   32: He who commits adultery with a woman is void of understanding. He who does it destroys his own soul.
   33: He will get wounds and dishonor. His reproach will not be wiped away.
   34: For jealousy arouses the fury of the husband. He won't spare in the day of vengeance.
   35: He won't regard any ransom, Neither will he rest content, though you give many gifts.
