1 When thou sittest to eat with a ruler, consider diligently what is before thee: H · G · S  
2 And put a knife to thy throat, if thou be a man given to appetite. H · G · S  
3 Be not desirous of his dainties: for they are deceitful meat. H · G · S  
4 Labour not to be rich: cease from thine own wisdom. H · G · S  
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. H · G · S  
6 Eat thou not the bread of him that hath an evil eye, neither desire thou his dainty meats: H · G · S  hath an evil eye
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. H · G · S  thinketh in his heart
8 The morsel which thou hast eaten shalt thou vomit up, and lose thy sweet words. H · G · S  
9 Speak not in the ears of a fool: for he will despise the wisdom of thy words. H · G · S  
10 Remove not the old landmark; and enter not into the fields of the fatherless: H · G · S  old landmark
11 For their redeemer is mighty; he shall plead their cause with thee. H · G · S  
12 Apply thine heart unto instruction, and thine ears to the words of knowledge. H · G · S  
13 Withhold not correction from the child: for if thou beatest him with the rod, he shall not die. H · G · S  beatest him with the rod
14 Thou shalt beat him with the rod, and shalt deliver his soul from hell. H · G · S  beat him with the rod deliver his soul
15 My son, if thine heart be wise, my heart shall rejoice, even mine. H · G · S  
16 Yea, my reins shall rejoice, when thy lips speak right things. H · G · S  reins
17 Let not thine heart envy sinners: but be thou in the fear of the LORD all the day long. H · G · S  
18 For surely there is an end; and thine expectation shall not be cut off. H · G · S  
19 Hear thou, my son, and be wise, and guide thine heart in the way. H · G · S  
20 Be not among winebibbers; among riotous eaters of flesh: H · G · S  winebibbers
21 For the drunkard and the glutton shall come to poverty: and drowsiness shall clothe a man with rags. H · G · S  
22 Hearken unto thy father that begat thee, and despise not thy mother when she is old. H · G · S  
23 Buy the truth, and sell it not; also wisdom, and instruction, and understanding. H · G · S  
24 The father of the righteous shall greatly rejoice: and he that begetteth a wise child shall have joy of him. H · G · S  
25 Thy father and thy mother shall be glad, and she that bare thee shall rejoice. H · G · S  
26 My son, give me thine heart, and let thine eyes observe my ways. H · G · S  
27 For a whore is a deep ditch; and a strange woman is a narrow pit. H · G · S  
28 She also lieth in wait as for a prey, and increaseth the transgressors among men. H · G · S  
29 Who hath woe? who hath sorrow? who hath contentions? who hath babbling? who hath wounds without cause? who hath redness of eyes? H · G · S  
30 They that tarry long at the wine; they that go to seek mixed wine. H · G · S  
31 Look not thou upon the wine when it is red, when it giveth his colour in the cup, when it moveth itself aright. H · G · S  wine when it is red
32 At the last it biteth like a serpent, and stingeth like an adder. H · G · S  
33 Thine eyes shall behold strange women, and thine heart shall utter perverse things. H · G · S  
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. H · G · S  
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.

H · G · S
