RF PRO 23:1 On Temperance.
If you sit down to dine with a ruler,
Consider well what is before you;—
RF PRO 23:2 And put a knife to your throat,
If you are a man of keen taste,
RF PRO 23:3 And do not desire his dainties,
For they are a food that deceives.
RF PRO 23:4 On to eager a pursuit of Wealth.
Exhaust not yourself to be rich,
Take a rest, that you may reflect,
RF PRO 23:5 That wealth flies from your sight, and is not.
For it grows;—then spreads wings for itself,
Like an eagle, and flies to the skies.
RF PRO 23:6 On unwilling Hosts.
Eat not the bread of the grudger
And desire none of his sweets;—
RF PRO 23:7 He is like the thoughts of his soul
Though he asks you "to eat and to drink!"
Yet his heart is never with yours.
RF PRO 23:8 You will vomit the mouthful you eat,
And be sick of your pleasant discourse.
RF PRO 23:9 On the Folly of trying to teach Fools.
Speak not to the ears of a fool,
Who despises instructive discourse.
RF PRO 23:10 On Honesty.
The ancient landmark remove not,
Nor encroach on the orphan's land,
RF PRO 23:11 For their Defender has power,—
And conducts their defence against you.
RF PRO 23:12 Advice to Parents.
Present your heart to instruction,
And your ears to the teachings of fact,
RF PRO 23:13 Refrain not correcting your child,
Whom the strokes of a rod will not kill.
RF PRO 23:14 You can flog him yourself with a rod,
And rescue his life from the grave.
RF PRO 23:15 An Appeal to his Son.
My son! if your heart will be wise,
My heart will be glad,—yes, my own!—
RF PRO 23:16 And the depths of my breast will exult,
When I hear of your lips speaking right.
RF PRO 23:17 And let not your heart envy sinners;
But be always in fear of the LORD,—
RF PRO 23:18 For a future condition is certain,
Therefore cut not yourself from your hopes.
RF PRO 23:19 So listen, my son, and be wise,
And proceed with your heart in my way.
RF PRO 23:20 Go not with deep drinkers of wine,
Nor join in their riotous feasts,
RF PRO 23:21 For the drunkard and glutton make poor,
And sleeping will clothe you in rags.
RF PRO 23:22 So attend to the father who got you,
And despise not your mother when old.
RF PRO 23:23 Buy Truth, and sell it not again,
With Wisdom, Instruction, and Sense.
RF PRO 23:24 For the father of the good will be glad,
Who has a wise son can rejoice.—
RF PRO 23:25 Make your father and mother content,
That they may be glad you were born.
RF PRO 23:26 A Warning against Vice.
My son! give your heart up to me,
And let your eyes look on my ways,
RF PRO 23:27 For a loose woman is a deep ditch,
And a whore is a pit of distress;
RF PRO 23:28 For she lies in wait for her plunder,
And increases the vices of men.
RF PRO 23:29 Against Drunkenness.
Who have woe? who have misery and brawls?
Who have wounds? who have objectless strife?
With whom are the red gleaming eyes?
RF PRO 23:30 Are they not with the seekers of wine,
Who go out to search for the best?
RF PRO 23:31 Look not on the wine that is red,
When its eye dances right in the cup;
RF PRO 23:32 For it afterwards stings like a snake,
And its bite like an adder inflames!
RF PRO 23:33 Loose women your eyes will regard,
And your heart vomit out what disgusts,
RF PRO 23:34 As though laid in the heart of the sea,
And stretched on the deck of a ship.
RF PRO 23:35 "Let them strike me! I suffer no pain!
Let them beat me;—I never shall care!—
When I wake, I will seek it again!"


AKJV ROM 8:32 He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?
