Chapter 23

  1. 1. When thou sittest
    H3427
    to eat
    H3898
    with a ruler,
    H4910
    consider
    H995
    diligently
    H995
    what is before
    H6440
    thee:
  2. 2. And put
    H7760
    a knife
    H7915
    to thy throat,
    H3930
    if thou be a man given
    H1167
    to appetite.
    H5315
  3. 3. Be not desirous
    H183
    of his dainties:
    H4303
    for they are deceitful
    H3577
    meat.
    H3899
  4. 4. Labour
    H3021
    not to be rich:
    H6238
    cease
    H2308
    from thine own wisdom.
    H998
  5. 5. Wilt thou set
    H5774
    H5774
    thine eyes
    H5869
    upon that which is not? for riches certainly
    H6213
    make
    H6213
    themselves wings;
    H3671
    they fly away
    H5774
    H5774
    as an eagle
    H5404
    toward heaven.
    H8064
  6. 6. Eat
    H3898
    thou not the bread
    H3899
    of him that hath an evil
    H7451
    eye,
    H5869
    neither desire
    H183
    thou his dainty meats:
    H4303
  7. 7. For as he thinketh
    H8176
    in his heart,
    H5315
    so is he: Eat
    H398
    and drink,
    H8354
    saith
    H559
    he to thee; but his heart
    H3820
    is not with thee.
  8. 8. The morsel
    H6595
    which thou hast eaten
    H398
    shalt thou vomit up,
    H6958
    and lose
    H7843
    thy sweet
    H5273
    words.
    H1697
  9. 9. Speak
    H1696
    not in the ears
    H241
    of a fool:
    H3684
    for he will despise
    H936
    the wisdom
    H7922
    of thy words.
    H4405
  10. 10. Remove
    H5253
    not the old
    H5769
    landmark;
    H1366
    and enter
    H935
    not into the fields
    H7704
    of the fatherless:
    H3490
  11. 11. For their redeemer
    H1350
    is mighty;
    H2389
    he shall plead
    H7378
    their cause
    H7379
    with thee.
  12. 12. Apply
    H935
    thine heart
    H3820
    unto instruction,
    H4148
    and thine ears
    H241
    to the words
    H561
    of knowledge.
    H1847
  13. 13. Withhold
    H4513
    not correction
    H4148
    from the child:
    H5288
    for if thou beatest
    H5221
    him with the rod,
    H7626
    he shall not die.
    H4191
  14. 14. Thou shalt beat
    H5221
    him with the rod,
    H7626
    and shalt deliver
    H5337
    his soul
    H5315
    from hell.
    H7585
  15. 15. My son,
    H1121
    if thine heart
    H3820
    be wise,
    H2449
    my heart
    H3820
    shall rejoice,
    H8055
    even mine.
    H589
  16. 16. Yea, my reins
    H3629
    shall rejoice,
    H5937
    when thy lips
    H8193
    speak
    H1696
    right things.
    H4339
  17. 17. Let not thine heart
    H3820
    envy
    H7065
    sinners:
    H2400
    but be thou in the fear
    H3374
    of the LORD
    H3068
    all the day
    H3117
    long.
  18. 18. For surely there is
    H3426
    an end;
    H319
    and thine expectation
    H8615
    shall not be cut off.
    H3772
  19. 19. Hear
    H8085
    thou, my son,
    H1121
    and be wise,
    H2449
    and guide
    H833
    thine heart
    H3820
    in the way.
    H1870
  20. 20. Be not among winebibbers;
    H5433
    H3196
    among riotous eaters
    H2151
    of flesh:
    H1320
  21. 21. For the drunkard
    H5433
    and the glutton
    H2151
    shall come to poverty:
    H3423
    and drowsiness
    H5124
    shall clothe
    H3847
    a man with rags.
    H7168
  22. 22. Hearken
    H8085
    unto thy father
    H1
    that begat
    H3205
    thee, and despise
    H936
    not thy mother
    H517
    when she is old.
    H2204
  23. 23. Buy
    H7069
    the truth,
    H571
    and sell
    H4376
    it not; also wisdom,
    H2451
    and instruction,
    H4148
    and understanding.
    H998
  24. 24. The father
    H1
    of the righteous
    H6662
    shall greatly
    H1524
    rejoice:
    H1523
    and he that begetteth
    H3205
    a wise
    H2450
    child shall have joy
    H8055
    of him.
  25. 25. Thy father
    H1
    and thy mother
    H517
    shall be glad,
    H8055
    and she that bare
    H3205
    thee shall rejoice.
    H1523
  26. 26. My son,
    H1121
    give
    H5414
    me thine heart,
    H3820
    and let thine eyes
    H5869
    observe
    H7521
    H5341
    my ways.
    H1870
  27. 27. For a whore
    H2181
    is a deep
    H6013
    ditch;
    H7745
    and a strange woman
    H5237
    is a narrow
    H6862
    pit.
    H875
  28. 28. She also lieth in wait
    H693
    as for a prey,
    H2863
    and increaseth
    H3254
    the transgressors
    H898
    among men.
    H120
  29. 29. Who hath woe?
    H188
    who hath sorrow?
    H17
    who hath contentions?
    H4079
    H4066
    who hath babbling?
    H7879
    who hath wounds
    H6482
    without cause?
    H2600
    who hath redness
    H2448
    of eyes?
    H5869
  30. 30. They that tarry long
    H309
    at the wine;
    H3196
    they that go
    H935
    to seek
    H2713
    mixed wine.
    H4469
  31. 31. Look
    H7200
    not thou upon the wine
    H3196
    when it is red,
    H119
    when it giveth
    H5414
    his colour
    H5869
    in the cup,
    H3563
    H3599
    when it moveth
    H1980
    itself aright.
    H4339
  32. 32. At the last
    H319
    it biteth
    H5391
    like a serpent,
    H5175
    and stingeth
    H6567
    like an adder.
    H6848
  33. 33. Thine eyes
    H5869
    shall behold
    H7200
    strange women,
    H2114
    and thine heart
    H3820
    shall utter
    H1696
    perverse things.
    H8419
  34. 34. Yea, thou shalt be as he that lieth down
    H7901
    in the midst
    H3820
    of the sea,
    H3220
    or as he that lieth
    H7901
    upon the top
    H7218
    of a mast.
    H2260
  35. 35. They have stricken
    H5221
    me, shalt thou say, and I was not sick;
    H2470
    they have beaten
    H1986
    me, and I felt
    H3045
    it not: when shall I awake?
    H6974
    I will seek
    H1245
    it yet
    H3254
    again.
