020:005:001
My son,
attend unto my wisdom,
and bow thine ear to my understanding:


020:005:002
That thou mayest regard discretion,
and that thy lips may keep knowledge.


020:005:003
For the lips of a strange woman drop as an honeycomb,
and her mouth is smoother than oil:


020:005:004
But her end is bitter as wormwood,
sharp as a two-edged sword.


020:005:005
Her feet go down to death;
her steps take hold on hell.


020:005:006
Lest thou shouldest ponder the path of life,
her ways are moveable,
that thou canst not know them.


020:005:007
Hear me now therefore,
O ye children,
and depart not from the words of my mouth.


020:005:008
Remove thy way far from her,
and come not nigh the door of her house:


020:005:009
Lest thou give thine honour unto others,
and thy years unto the cruel:


020:005:010
Lest strangers be filled with thy wealth;
and thy labours be in the house of a stranger;


020:005:011
And thou mourn at the last,
when thy flesh and thy body are consumed,


020:005:012
And say,
How have I hated instruction,
and my heart despised reproof;


020:005:013
And have not obeyed the voice of my teachers,
nor inclined mine ear to them that instructed me!


020:005:014
I was almost in all evil in the midst of the congregation and assembly.


020:005:015
Drink waters out of thine own cistern,
and running waters out of thine own well.


020:005:016
Let thy fountains be dispersed abroad,
and rivers of waters in the streets.


020:005:017
Let them be only thine own,
and not strangers' with thee.


020:005:018
Let thy fountain be blessed:
and rejoice with the wife of thy youth.


020:005:019
Let 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.


020:005:020
And why wilt thou,
my son,
be ravished with a strange woman,
and embrace the bosom of a stranger?


020:005:021
For the ways of man are before the eyes of the LORD,
and he pondereth all his goings.


020:005:022
His own iniquities shall take the wicked himself,
and he shall be holden with the cords of his sins.


020:005:023
He shall die without instruction;
and in the greatness of his folly he shall go astray.
