KJV PRO5 with Strong's Hebrew/GreekPRO4.htm PRO6.htm
5:1 My son [H1121] , attend [H7181] unto my wisdom [H2451] , [and] bow [H5186] thine ear [H241] to my understanding [H8394] :
5:2 That thou mayest regard [H8104] discretion [H4209] , and [that] thy lips [H8193] may keep [H5341] knowledge [H1847] .
5:3 For the lips [H8193] of a strange woman [H2114] drop [H5197] [as] an honeycomb [H5317] , and her mouth [H2441] [is] smoother [H2509] than oil [H8081] :(mouth: Heb. palate)
5:4 But her end [H319] is bitter [H4751] as wormwood [H3939] , sharp [H2299] as a twoedged [H6310] sword [H2719] .
5:5 Her feet [H7272] go down [H3381] to death [H4194] ; her steps [H6806] take hold [H8551] on hell [H7585] .
5:6 Lest thou shouldest ponder [H6424] the path [H734] of life [H2416] , her ways [H4570] are moveable [H5128] , [that] thou canst not know [H3045] [them].
5:7 Hear [H8085] me now therefore, O ye children [H1121] , and depart [H5493] not from the words [H561] of my mouth [H6310] .
5:8 Remove [H7368] thy way [H1870] far [H7368] from her, and come not nigh [H7126] the door [H6607] of her house [H1004] :
5:9 Lest thou give [H5414] thine honour [H1935] unto others [H312] , and thy years [H8141] unto the cruel [H394] :
5:10 Lest strangers [H2114] be filled [H7646] with thy wealth [H3581] ; and thy labours [H6089] [be] in the house [H1004] of a stranger [H5237] ;(thy wealth: Heb. thy strength)
5:11 And thou mourn [H5098] at the last [H319] , when thy flesh [H1320] and thy body [H7607] are consumed [H3615] ,
5:12 And say [H559] , How have I hated [H8130] instruction [H4148] , and my heart [H3820] despised [H5006] reproof [H8433] ;
5:13 And have not obeyed [H8085] the voice [H6963] of my teachers [H3384] , nor inclined [H5186] mine ear [H241] to them that instructed [H3925] me!
5:14 I was almost [H4592] in all evil [H7451] in the midst [H8432] of the congregation [H6951] and assembly [H5712] .
5:15 Drink [H8354] waters [H4325] out of thine own cistern [H953] , and running waters [H5140] out of [H8432] thine own well [H875] .
5:16 Let thy fountains [H4599] be dispersed [H6327] abroad [H2351] , [and] rivers [H6388] of waters [H4325] in the streets [H7339] .
5:17 Let them be only thine own, and not strangers' [H2114] with thee.
5:18 Let thy fountain [H4726] be blessed [H1288] : and rejoice [H8055] with the wife [H802] of thy youth [H5271] .
5:19 [Let her be as] the loving [H158] hind [H365] and pleasant [H2580] roe [H3280] ; let her breasts [H1717] satisfy [H7301] thee at all times [H6256] ; and be thou ravished [H7686] always [H8548] with her love [H160] .(satisfy: Heb. water thee)(be thou: Heb. err thou always in her love)
5:20 And why wilt thou, my son [H1121] , be ravished [H7686] with a strange woman [H2114] , and embrace [H2263] the bosom [H2436] of a stranger [H5237] ?
5:21 For the ways [H1870] of man [H376] [are] before [H5227] the eyes [H5869] of the LORD [H3068] , and he pondereth [H6424] all his goings [H4570] .
5:22 His own iniquities [H5771] shall take [H3920] the wicked [H7563] himself, and he shall be holden [H8551] with the cords [H2256] of his sins [H2403] .(sins: Heb. sin)
5:23 He shall die [H4191] without instruction [H4148] ; and in the greatness [H7230] of his folly [H200] he shall go astray [H7686] .
