Proverbs Chapter 5

, ; , -. 1 My son, attend unto my wisdom; incline thine ear to my understanding;
; , . 2 That thou mayest preserve discretion, and that thy lips may keep knowledge.
, ; . 3 For the lips of a strange woman drop honey, and her mouth is smoother than oil;
, ; , . 4 But her end is bitter as wormwood, sharp as a two-edged sword.
, ; , . 5 Her feet go down to death; her steps take hold on the nether-world;
, -; , . 6 Lest she should walk the even path of life, her ways wander, but she knoweth it not. {P}
, -; -, -. 7 Now therefore, O ye children, hearken unto me, and depart not from the words of my mouth.
; -, - . 8 Remove thy way far from her, and come not nigh the door of her house;
- ; , . 9 Lest thou give thy vigour unto others, and thy years unto the cruel;
- ; , . 10 Lest strangers be filled with thy strength, and thy labours be in the house of an alien;
; , . 11 And thou moan, when thine end cometh, when thy flesh and thy body are consumed,
--, ; , . 12 And say: 'How have I hated instruction, and my heart despised reproof;
-, ; , - . 13 Neither have I hearkened to the voice of my teachers, nor inclined mine ear to them that instructed me!
, --- . 14 I was well nigh in all evil in the midst of the congregation and assembly.'
- ; , . 15 Drink waters out of thine own cistern, and running waters out of thine own well.
; , -. 16 Let thy springs be dispersed abroad, and courses of water in the streets.
- ; . 17 Let them be only thine own, and not strangers' with thee.
- ; , . 18 Let thy fountain be blessed; and have joy of the wife of thy youth.
, -:
, -; , .
19 A lovely hind and a graceful doe, {N}
let her breasts satisfy thee at all times; with her love be thou ravished always.
; , . 20 Why then wilt thou, my son, be ravished with a strange woman, and embrace the bosom of an alien?
, ---; - . 21 For the ways of man are before the eyes of the LORD, and He maketh even all his paths.
-- -; , . 22 His own iniquities shall ensnare the wicked, and he shall be holden with the cords of his sin.
--, ; . 23 He shall die for lack of instruction; and in the greatness of his folly he shall reel. {P}
