Proverbs 22 | Bible Index | Catholic Bible

The Bible - Proverbs 23

1 - When thou sittest to eat with a ruler, consider diligently what is before thee:

2 - And put a knife to thy throat, if thou be a man given to appetite.

3 - Be not desirous of his dainties: for they are deceitful meat.

4 - Labour not to be rich: cease from thine own wisdom.

5 - Wilt thou set thine eyes upon that which is not? for riches certainly make themselves wings; they fly away as an eagle toward heaven.

6 - Eat thou not the bread of him that hath an evil eye, neither desire thou his dainty meats:

7 - For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he: Eat and drink, saith he to thee; but his heart is not with thee.

8 - The morsel which thou hast eaten shalt thou vomit up, and lose thy sweet words.

9 - Speak not in the ears of a fool: for he will despise the wisdom of thy words.

10 - Remove not the old landmark; and enter not into the fields of the fatherless:

11 - For their redeemer is mighty; he shall plead their cause with thee.

12 - Apply thine heart unto instruction, and thine ears to the words of knowledge.

13 - Withhold not correction from the child: for if thou beatest him with the rod, he shall not die.

14 - Thou shalt beat him with the rod, and shalt deliver his soul from hell.

15 - My son, if thine heart be wise, my heart shall rejoice, even mine.

16 - Yea, my reins shall rejoice, when thy lips speak right things.

17 - Let not thine heart envy sinners: but be thou in the fear of the LORD all the day long.

18 - For surely there is an end; and thine expectation shall not be cut off.

19 - Hear thou, my son, and be wise, and guide thine heart in the way.

20 - Be not among winebibbers; among riotous eaters of flesh:

21 - For the drunkard and the glutton shall come to poverty: and drowsiness shall clothe a man with rags.

22 - Hearken unto thy father that begat thee, and despise not thy mother when she is old.

23 - Buy the truth, and sell it not; also wisdom, and instruction, and understanding.

24 - The father of the righteous shall greatly rejoice: and he that begetteth a wise child shall have joy of him.

25 - Thy father and thy mother shall be glad, and she that bare thee shall rejoice.

26 - My son, give me thine heart, and let thine eyes observe my ways.

27 - For a whore is a deep ditch; and a strange woman is a narrow pit.

28 - She also lieth in wait as for a prey, and increaseth the transgressors among men.

29 - Who hath woe? who hath sorrow? who hath contentions? who hath babbling? who hath wounds without cause? who hath redness of eyes?

30 - They that tarry long at the wine; they that go to seek mixed wine.

31 - Look not thou upon the wine when it is red, when it giveth his colour in the cup, when it moveth itself aright.

32 - At the last it biteth like a serpent, and stingeth like an adder.

33 - Thine eyes shall behold strange women, and thine heart shall utter perverse things.

34 - Yea, thou shalt be as he that lieth down in the midst of the sea, or as he that lieth upon the top of a mast.

35 - They have stricken me, shalt thou say, and I was not sick; they have beaten me, and I felt it not: when shall I awake? I will seek it yet again.
