Proverbs 6

Against suretiship,

Proverbs 6:1 My sone, yf thou be suertie for yi neghboure, thou hast fastened thine hode wt another ma: Proverbs 6:2 yee thou art boude with thine owne wordes, and taken wt thine owne speach. Proverbs 6:3 Therfore (my sonne) do this, discharge thy self, for thou art come i to yi neghbours daunger. Go thy waye then soone, & intreate thy neghboure: Proverbs 6:4 let not thyne eyes slepe, ner thine eye lyddes slomber. Proverbs 6:5 Saue thy self as a doo fro ye honde, & as a byrde fro the hode of the fouler.


Proverbs 6:6 Go to the Emmet (thou slogarde) cosidre hir wayes, & lerne to be wyse. Proverbs 6:7 She hath no gyde, no teacher, no leder: Proverbs 6:8 yet in the sommer she prouideth hir meate, & gathereth hir foode together i ye haruest. Proverbs 6:9 How loge wilt thou slepe, thou slogish ma? Wha wilt thou aryse out of thy slepe? Proverbs 6:10 Yee slepe on still a litle, slober a litle, folde thine handes together yet a litle, that thou mayest slepe: Proverbs 6:11 so shal pouerte come vnto the as one yt trauayleth by the waye, & necessite like a wapened man.

and mischievousness.

Proverbs 6:12 A dissemblynge person, a wicked man goeth with a frowarde mouth: Proverbs 6:13 he wyncketh with his eyes, he tokeneth wt his fete, he poynteth wt his fyngers, Proverbs 6:14 he is euer ymageninge myschefe & frowardnesse in his hert, & causeth discorde. Proverbs 6:15 Therfore shal his destruccion come hastely vpo him, sodenly shal he be all tobroken, and not be healed.

Seven things hateful to God.

Proverbs 6:16 There be sixe thinges, which the LORDE hateth, & the seuenth he vtterly abhorreth: Proverbs 6:17 A proude loke, a dyssemblynge tonge, hades that shed innocent bloude, Proverbs 6:18 an herte yt goeth aboute wt wicked ymaginacios, fete that be swift in rennynge to do myschefe, Proverbs 6:19 a false wytnesse yt bringeth vp lyes, & soch one as soweth discorde amonge brethren.

The blessings of obedience.

Proverbs 6:20 My sonne, kepe thy fathers comaundemetes, & forsake not ye lawe of thy mother. Proverbs 6:21 Put the vp together in thine herte, and bynde the aboute thy necke. Proverbs 6:22 That they maye lede the where thou goest, preserue the when thou art aslepe, & yt when thou awakest, thou mayest talke of the Proverbs 6:23 (For the commaundement is a lanterne, and the lawe a light: yee chastenynge & nurtoure is ye waye of life) Proverbs 6:24 that they maye kepe the fro the euell woman, & from the flaterynge tonge of the harlott:

The mischiefs of whoredom.

Proverbs 6:25 yt thou lust not after her beuty in thine herte, & lest thou be take wt hir fayre lokes. Proverbs 6:26 An harlot wil make a ma to begg his bred, but a maried woman wil hunt for ye precious life. Proverbs 6:27 Maye a man take fyre in his bosome, and his clothes not be brent? Proverbs 6:28 Or can one go vpon hote coales, and his fete not be hurte? Proverbs 6:29 Euen so, who so euer goeth in to his neghbours wife, and toucheth her, can not be vngiltie. Proverbs 6:30 Men do not vtterly despyse a thefe, that stealeth to satisfie his soule, when he is hongerie: Proverbs 6:31 but yf he maye be gotten, he restoreth agayne seuen tymes asmoch, or els he maketh recompence with all the good of his house. Proverbs 6:32 But who so comitteth aduoutrie with a woma, he is a foole, and bryngeth his life to destruccion. Proverbs 6:33 He getteth him self also shame & dishonor, soch as shal neuer be put out. Proverbs 6:34 For the gelousy & wrath of the ma will not be itreated, Proverbs 6:35 no though thou woldest ofre him greate giftes to make amendes, he will not receaue them.
