1
When thou sittest [3427] to eat [3898] with a ruler, [4910] consider [0995] diligently [0995] what [is] before [6440] thee:
2
And put [7760] a knife [7915] to thy throat, [3930] if thou [be] a man given [1167] to appetite. [5315]
3
Be not desirous [0183] of his dainties: [4303] for they [are] deceitful [3577] meat. [3899]
4
Labour [3021] not to be rich: [6238] cease [2308] from thine own wisdom. [0998]
5
Wilt thou set [5774] thine eyes [5869] upon that which is not? for [riches] certainly [6213] make [6213] themselves wings; [3671] they fly away [5774] as an eagle [5404] toward heaven. [8064]
6
Eat [3898] thou not the bread [3899] of [him that hath] an evil [7451] eye, [5869] neither desire [0183] thou his dainty meats: [4303]
7
For as he thinketh [8176] in his heart, [5315] so [is] he: Eat [0398] and drink, [8354] saith [0559] he to thee; but his heart [3820] [is] not with thee.
8
The morsel [6595] [which] thou hast eaten [0398] shalt thou vomit up, [6958] and lose [7843] thy sweet [5273] words. [1697]
9
Speak [1696] not in the ears [0241] of a fool: [3684] for he will despise [0936] the wisdom [7922] of thy words. [4405]
10
Remove [5253] not the old [5769] landmark; [1366] and enter [0935] not into the fields [7704] of the fatherless: [3490]
11
For their redeemer [1350] [is] mighty; [2389] he shall plead [7378] their cause [7379] with thee.
12
Apply [0935] thine heart [3820] unto instruction, [4148] and thine ears [0241] to the words [0561] of knowledge. [1847]
13
Withhold [4513] not correction [4148] from the child: [5288] for [if] thou beatest [5221] him with the rod, [7626] he shall not die. [4191]
14
Thou shalt beat [5221] him with the rod, [7626] and shalt deliver [5337] his soul [5315] from hell. [7585]
15
My son, [1121] if thine heart [3820] be wise, [2449] my heart [3820] shall rejoice, [8055] even mine. [0589]
16
Yea, my reins [3629] shall rejoice, [5937] when thy lips [8193] speak [1696] right things. [4339]
17
Let not thine heart [3820] envy [7065] sinners: [2400] but [be thou] in the fear [3374] of the LORD [3068] all the day [3117] long.
18
For surely there is [3426] an end; [0319] and thine expectation [8615] shall not be cut off. [3772]
19
Hear [8085] thou, my son, [1121] and be wise, [2449] and guide [0833] thine heart [3820] in the way. [1870]
20
Be not among winebibbers; [3196] [5433] among riotous eaters [2151] of flesh: [1320]
21
For the drunkard [5433] and the glutton [2151] shall come to poverty: [3423] and drowsiness [5124] shall clothe [3847] [a man] with rags. [7168]
22
Hearken [8085] unto thy father [0001] that begat [3205] thee, and despise [0936] not thy mother [0517] when she is old. [2204]
23
Buy [7069] the truth, [0571] and sell [4376] [it] not; [also] wisdom, [2451] and instruction, [4148] and understanding. [0998]
24
The father [0001] of the righteous [6662] shall greatly [1524] rejoice: [1523] and he that begetteth [3205] a wise [2450] [child] shall have joy [8055] of him.
25
Thy father [0001] and thy mother [0517] shall be glad, [8055] and she that bare [3205] thee shall rejoice. [1523]
26
My son, [1121] give [5414] me thine heart, [3820] and let thine eyes [5869] observe [7521] [5341] my ways. [1870]
27
For a whore [2181] [is] a deep [6013] ditch; [7745] and a strange [5237] woman [is] a narrow [6862] pit. [0875]
28
She also lieth in wait [0693] as [for] a prey, [2863] and increaseth [3254] the transgressors [0898] among men. [0120]
29
Who hath woe? [0188] who hath sorrow? [0017] who hath contentions? [4079] [4066] who hath babbling? [7879] who hath wounds [6482] without cause? [2600] who hath redness [2448] of eyes? [5869]
30
They that tarry long [0309] at the wine; [3196] they that go [0935] to seek [2713] mixed wine. [4469]
31
Look [7200] not thou upon the wine [3196] when it is red, [0119] when it giveth [5414] his colour [5869] in the cup, [3563] [3599] [when] it moveth [1980] itself aright. [4339]
32
At the last [0319] it biteth [5391] like a serpent, [5175] and stingeth [6567] like an adder. [6848]
33
Thine eyes [5869] shall behold [7200] strange women, [2114] and thine heart [3820] shall utter [1696] perverse things. [8419]
34
Yea, thou shalt be as he that lieth down [7901] in the midst [3820] of the sea, [3220] or as he that lieth [7901] upon the top [7218] of a mast. [2260]
35
They have stricken [5221] me, [shalt thou say, and] I was not sick; [2470] they have beaten [1986] me, [and] I felt [3045] [it] not: when shall I awake? [6974] I will seek [1245] it yet [3254] again.
