Proverbs Chapter 5The Holy Bible, King James Version
5:1My son, attend unto my wisdom, and bow thine ear to my understanding:
5:2That thou mayest regard discretion, and that thy lips may keep knowledge.
5:3For the lips of a strange woman drop as an honeycomb, and her mouth is smoother than oil:
5:4But her end is bitter as wormwood, sharp as a two-edged sword.
5:5Her feet go down to death; her steps take hold on hell.
5:6Lest thou shouldest ponder the path of life, her ways are moveable, that thou canst not know them.
5:7Hear me now therefore, O ye children, and depart not from the words of my mouth.
5:8Remove thy way far from her, and come not nigh the door of her house:
5:9Lest thou give thine honour unto others, and thy years unto the cruel:
5:10Lest strangers be filled with thy wealth; and thy labours be in the house of a stranger;
5:11And thou mourn at the last, when thy flesh and thy body are consumed,
5:12And say, How have I hated instruction, and my heart despised reproof;
5:13And have not obeyed the voice of my teachers, nor inclined mine ear to them that instructed me!
5:14I was almost in all evil in the midst of the congregation and assembly.
5:15Drink waters out of thine own cistern, and running waters out of thine own well.
5:16Let thy fountains be dispersed abroad, and rivers of waters in the streets.
5:17Let them be only thine own, and not strangers' with thee.
5:18Let thy fountain be blessed: and rejoice with the wife of thy youth.
5:19Let her be as the loving hind and pleasant roe; let her breasts satisfy thee at all times; and be thou ravished always with her love.
5:20And why wilt thou, my son, be ravished with a strange woman, and embrace the bosom of a stranger?
5:21For the ways of man are before the eyes of the LORD, and he pondereth all his goings.
5:22His own iniquities shall take the wicked himself, and he shall be holden with the cords of his sins.
5:23He shall die without instruction; and in the greatness of his folly he shall go astray.
