Proverbs 5

5:1 My son, attend unto my wisdom, and bow thine ear to my understanding:
5:2 That thou mayest regard discretion, and that thy lips may keep knowledge. (5:3-5) The feet of strange women "go down to death," and "her steps take hold on hell."

(5:3) "For the lips of a strange woman drop as an honeycomb, and her mouth is smoother than oil."

(5:5) "Her feet go down to death; her steps take hold on hell."

5:3 For the lips of a strange woman drop as an honeycomb, and her mouth is smoother than oil:,
5:4 But her end is bitter as wormwood, sharp as a two-edged sword.
5:5 Her feet go down to death; her steps take hold on hell.
5:6 Lest thou shouldest ponder the path of life, her ways are moveable, that thou canst not know them.
5:7 Hear me now therefore, O ye children, and depart not from the words of my mouth.
5:8 Remove thy way far from her, and come not nigh the door of her house:
5:9 Lest thou give thine honour unto others, and thy years unto the cruel:
5:10 Lest strangers be filled with thy wealth; and thy labours be in the house of a stranger;
5:11 And thou mourn at the last, when thy flesh and thy body are consumed,
5:12 And say, How have I hated instruction, and my heart despised reproof;
5:13 And have not obeyed the voice of my teachers, nor inclined mine ear to them that instructed me!
5:14 I was almost in all evil in the midst of the congregation and assembly.
5:15 Drink waters out of thine own cistern, and running waters out of thine own well.
5:16 Let thy fountains be dispersed abroad, and rivers of waters in the streets.
5:17 Let them be only thine own, and not strangers' with thee.
5:18 Let thy fountain be blessed: and rejoice with the wife of thy youth. (5:18-19) "Rejoice with the wife of thy youth ... Let her breasts satisfy thee at all times; and be thou ravished always with her love."
5:19 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.
5:20 And why wilt thou, my son, be ravished with a strange woman, and embrace the bosom of a stranger? (5:20) "Why wilt thou, my son, be ravished with a strange woman, and embrace the bosom of a stranger?"
5:21 For the ways of man are before the eyes of the LORD, and he pondereth all his goings.
5:22 His own iniquities shall take the wicked himself, and he shall be holden with the cords of his sins.
5:23 He shall die without instruction; and in the greatness of his folly he shall go astray.

Obey the author of the book of Proverbs.
Attend unto my wisdom, and bow thine ear to my understanding. 5:1

Stay away from strange women.
For the lips of a strange woman drop as an honeycomb, and her mouth is smoother than oil: But her end is bitter as wormwood, sharp as a two-edged sword. Her feet go down to death; her steps take hold on hell. Lest thou shouldest ponder the path of life, her ways are moveable, that thou canst not know them. ... Remove thy way far from her, and come not nigh the door of her house. 5:3-8

Why wilt thou, my son, be ravished with a strange woman, and embrace the bosom of a stranger? 5:20

Drink from your own well.
Drink waters out of thine own cistern, and running waters out of thine own well. 5:15

Let your fountains run into the streets.
Let thy fountains be dispersed abroad, and rivers of waters in the streets. 5:16

Don't share your fountains with strangers.
Let them be only thine own, and not strangers' with thee. 5:17

Let your fountain be blessed.
Let thy fountain be blessed. 5:18

Rejoice with your wife.
Rejoice with the wife of thy youth. 5:18b

Be satisfied with your wife's breasts.
Let her [your wife] be as the loving hind and pleasant roe; let her breasts satisfy thee at all times; and be thou ravished always with her love. 5:19
