1 My child, if you have gone surety for your neighbour, if you have guaranteed the bond of a stranger,
Prov 17:18  Prov 22:26  Prov 11:15  Job 17:3  Prov 20:16  Gen 43:9  Gen 44:32-33 

2 if you have committed yourself with your lips, if through words of yours you have been entrapped,
Prov 12:13  Prov 18:7 

3 do this, my child, to extricate yourself -- since you have put yourself in the power of your neighbour: go, humble yourself, plead with your neighbour,
2Chr 12:5  2Chr 36:12  2Sam 24:14  Exod 10:3  Jas 4:10  Ps 31:8 

4 give your eyes no sleep, your eyelids no rest,
Ps 132:4  Eccl 9:10  Mark 13:35-36  Matt 24:17-18  Prov 6:10-11 

5 break free like a gazelle from the trap, like a bird from the fowler's clutches.
Ps 91:3  Ps 124:7  Ps 11:1  Prov 1:17 

6 Idler, go to the ant; ponder her ways and grow wise:
Prov 13:4  Heb 6:12  Job 12:7-8  Matt 25:26  Prov 10:26  Prov 20:4  Prov 30:25 

7 no one gives her orders, no overseer, no master,
Job 38:39-12  Job 39:26-30  Job 41:4-34  Prov 30:27 

8 yet all through the summer she gets her food ready, and gathers her supplies at harvest time.
Prov 10:5  1Tim 6:19  Prov 30:25 

9 How long do you intend to lie there, idler? When are you going to rise from your sleep?
Prov 24:33-34  1Thess 5:2-7  Eph 5:14  Jer 4:14  Ps 94:8  Rom 13:11  Prov 1:22 

10 A little sleep, a little drowsiness, a little folding of the arms to lie back,
Prov 6:6  Prov 23:33-34  Prov 24:33-34 

11 and poverty comes like a vagrant and, like a beggar, dearth.
Prov 13:4  Prov 24:34  Prov 10:4  Prov 20:4 

12 A scoundrel, a vicious man, he goes with a leer on his lips,
Prov 4:24  Prov 16:27  1Tim 5:13  Acts 20:30  Jas 3:6  Matt 12:34  Prov 17:4 

13 winking his eye, shuffling his foot, beckoning with his finger.
Ps 35:19  Job 15:12  Prov 10:10  Prov 5:6 

14 Trickery in his heart, always scheming evil, he sows dissension.
Mic 2:1  Prov 6:18-19  Ezek 11:2  Gal 6:7-8  Hos 8:7  Isa 32:7  Isa 57:20 

15 Disaster will overtake him sharply for this, suddenly, irretrievably, he will be broken.
Jer 19:11  2Chr 36:16  1Thess 5:3  Isa 30:13-14  Ps 73:18-20  Prov 1:27  Ps 50:22 

16 There are six things that Yahweh hates, seven that he abhors:
Ps 11:5  Prov 11:20  Prov 17:15  Deut 18:10-12  Deut 25:16  Prov 3:32  Prov 8:13 

17 a haughty look, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood,
Ps 120:2-3  Prov 12:22  Isa 1:15  Ps 101:5  Ps 5:6  2Kgs 24:4  Deut 19:10 

18 a heart that weaves wicked plots, feet that hurry to do evil,
Gen 6:5  Prov 1:16  Rom 3:15  Isa 59:7  Jer 4:14  Mic 2:1  Ps 36:4 

19 a false witness who lies with every breath, and one who sows dissension among brothers.
Prov 19:5  Ps 27:12  Prov 6:14  Prov 19:9  Jas 3:14-16  Jas 3:18  Prov 12:17 

20 Keep your father's precept, my child, do not spurn your mother's teaching.
Eph 6:1  Prov 23:22  Deut 27:16  Prov 1:8-9  Prov 7:1-4  Prov 30:11  Deut 21:18 

21 Bind them ever to your heart, tie them round your neck.
Prov 3:3  2Cor 3:3  Deut 6:8  Exod 13:16  Prov 4:6  Prov 4:21  Prov 7:3-4 

22 While you are active, they will guide you, when you fall asleep, they will watch over you, when you wake up, they will converse with you.
Prov 2:11  Prov 3:23-24  Ps 17:4  Ps 43:3  Ps 119:9  Ps 119:11  Ps 119:24 

23 For the precept is a lamp, the teaching is a light; correction and discipline are the way to life,
Ps 119:105  Ps 19:8  Jer 21:8  2Pet 1:19  Ps 119:98-100  Ps 141:5  Prov 3:18 

24 preserving you from the woman of bad character, from the wheedling talk of a woman who belongs to another.
Prov 2:16  Prov 5:3  Prov 7:5  Eccl 7:26 

25 Do not covet her beauty in your heart or let her captivate you with the play of her eyes;
2Kgs 9:30  Matt 5:28  Jas 1:14-15  2Sam 11:2-5  Isa 3:16  Song 4:9 

26 a prostitute can be bought for a hunk of bread, but a married woman aims to snare a precious life.
Prov 29:3  1Sam 2:36  Prov 5:10  Ezek 13:8  Ezek 13:18  Gen 39:14  Luke 15:13-15 

27 Can a man carry fire inside his shirt without setting his clothes alight?
Hos 7:4-7  Jas 3:5  Job 31:9-12 

28 Can you walk on red-hot coals without burning your feet?

29 Just so, the man who makes love to his neighbour's wife: no one who touches her will get off unpunished.
1Cor 7:1  2Sam 11:3-4  2Sam 12:9-10  2Sam 16:21  Ezek 22:11  Gen 12:18-19  Gen 20:4-7 

30 People attach but little blame to a thief who steals only to satisfy his hunger;
Job 38:39 

31 yet even he, if caught, will have to repay sevenfold and hand over all his family resources.
2Sam 12:6  Job 20:18  Exod 22:1-4  Luke 19:8  Matt 18:25 

32 But the adulterer has no sense; he works his own destruction.
Prov 7:7  Exod 20:14  Gen 39:9-10  Gen 41:39  Heb 13:4  Prov 2:18-19  Prov 7:22-23 

33 All he will get is blows and contempt, and dishonour never to be blotted out.
Prov 5:9-11  1Kgs 15:5  Gen 49:4  Judg 16:19-21  Matt 1:6  Neh 13:26  Ps 38:1-8 

34 For jealousy inflames the husband who will show no mercy when the day comes for revenge;
Prov 27:4  Song 8:6  Num 5:14  1Cor 10:22  Judg 19:29-30  Num 25:11 

35 he will not consider any compensation; lavish what gifts you may, he will not be placated.
2Kgs 5:1  Isa 2:9  Mal 2:9  Prov 4:3  Prov 7:13  Prov 8:25
