    Parental Counsel

    Proverbs Chapter 6 • Daily Reading by Pastor Chopper Ward

    Proverbs 6
    King James Version

    My son, if thou be surety for thy friend,
    if thou hast stricken thy hand with a stranger,​
    2 Thou art snared with the words of thy mouth,
    thou art taken with the words of thy mouth.​
    3 Do this now, my son,
    and deliver thyself,
    when thou art come into the hand of thy friend;
    go, humble thyself,
    and make sure thy friend.​
    4 Give not sleep to thine eyes,
    nor slumber to thine eyelids.​
    5 Deliver thyself as a roe from the hand of the hunter,
    and as a bird from the hand of the fowler.​

    The Folly of Indolence

    6 Go to the ant, thou sluggard;
    consider her ways, and be wise:​
    7 Which having no guide,
    overseer, or ruler,​
    8 Provideth her meat in the summer,
    and gathereth her food in the harvest.​
    9 How long wilt thou sleep, O sluggard?
    when wilt thou arise out of thy sleep?​
    10 Yet a little sleep, a little slumber,
    a little folding of the hands to sleep:​
    11 So shall thy poverty come as one that travelleth,
    and thy want as an armed man.​

    The Wicked Man

    12 A naughty person, a wicked man,
    walketh with a froward mouth.​
    13 He winketh with his eyes,
    he speaketh with his feet,
    he teacheth with his fingers;​
    14 Frowardness is in his heart,
    he deviseth mischief continually;
    he soweth discord.​
    15 Therefore shall his calamity come suddenly;
    suddenly shall he be broken without remedy.​
    16 These six things doth the Lord hate:
    yea, seven are an abomination unto him:​
    17 A proud look,
    a lying tongue,
    and hands that shed innocent blood,​
    18 An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations,
    feet that be swift in running to mischief,​
    19 A false witness that speaketh lies,
    and he that soweth discord among brethren.​

    Beware of Adultery

    20 My son, keep thy father's commandment,
    and forsake not the law of thy mother:​
    21 Bind them continually upon thine heart,
    and tie them about thy neck.​
    22 When thou goest, it shall lead thee;
    when thou sleepest, it shall keep thee;
    and when thou awakest, it shall talk with thee.​
    23 For the commandment is a lamp;
    and the law is light;
    and reproofs of instruction are the way of life:​
    24 To keep thee from the evil woman,
    from the flattery of the tongue of a strange woman.​
    25 Lust not after her beauty in thine heart;
    neither let her take thee with her eyelids.​
    26 For by means of a whorish woman
    a man is brought to a piece of bread:
    and the adultress will hunt for the precious life.​
    27 Can a man take fire in his bosom,
    and his clothes not be burned?​
    28 Can one go upon hot coals,
    and his feet not be burned?​
    29 So he that goeth in to his neighbour's wife;
    whosoever toucheth her shall not be innocent.​

    30 Men do not despise a thief,
    if he steal to satisfy his soul when he is hungry;​
    31 But if he be found, he shall restore sevenfold;
    he shall give all the substance of his house.​
    32 But whoso committeth adultery with a woman lacketh understanding:
    he that doeth it destroyeth his own soul.​
    33 A wound and dishonour shall he get;
    and his reproach shall not be wiped away.​
    34 For jealousy is the rage of a man:
    therefore he will not spare in the day of vengeance.​
    35 He will not regard any ransom;
    neither will he rest content, though thou givest many gifts.

    About Author

    Trusting and Obeying the God of Truth: Loving others within the limits that truth allows. "...not as though I wrote to thee a new commandment, but that which we had from the beginning, that we love one another. And this is love, that we walk according to his commandments; this is the commandment, just as you have heard from the beginning, so that you should walk in it." —2 John 1:5-6
