Proverbs 6:1 My sonne yf þu be suertye for thy neyghboure, and hast fastened thyne hand for another man, Proverbs 6:2 thou art bounde wt thyne awne wordes, and taken with thine awne speache. Proverbs 6:3 Therfore, my sonne, do thys & thou shalt be discharged: when thou art come into thy neighbours daunger. Goo thy wayes then soone, humble thy selfe, and with thy frendes intreate thy creditour: Proverbs 6:4 let not thyne eyes slepe, ner thyne eye lyddes slomber. Proverbs 6:5 Saue thy selfe as a doo from the hande of the huntre, & as a byrde from the hande of the fouler.
Proverbs 6:6 Go to the Emmet (thou slougard) consydre herwayes, & lerne to be wyse. Proverbs 6:7 She hath no guyde, no ouersear nor ruler: Proverbs 6:8 yet in þe Sommer she prouideth her meate, and gathereth her fode to gether in the haruest. Proverbs 6:9 Howe longe wylt thou slepe, thou slougysh man? When wylt thou aryse out of thy slepe? Proverbs 6:10 Yee slepe on styll a lytle, slomber a lytle, foulde thyne handes together yet a lytle, that þu mayest slepe: Proverbs 6:11 so shall pouertye come vnto the as on that trauayleth by the waye, & necessytelke a weapened man.
Proverbs 6:12 An vngodly person, a wycked man goeth with a frowarde mouth Proverbs 6:13 he wyncketh with his eyes, he tokeneth with hys fete, he poynteth with hys fyngers, Proverbs 6:14 he is euer ymagenynge myschefe, and frowardnesse in hys herte, & causeth discorde. Proverbs 6:15 Therfore shall hys destruccyon come hastly vpon him, sodenly shall he be all to broken, and not be healed.
Seven things hateful to God.
Proverbs 6:16 These syxe thynges doth the Lord hate, and the seuenth he vtterly abhorreth: Proverbs 6:17 A proude looke a lyinge tonge, handes þt shed innocent bloude, Proverbs 6:18 an herte that goeth aboute wyth wycked ymaginacyons fete that be swyfte in rennynge to do myschefe, Proverbs 6:19 a false wytnesse that bringeth vp lyes, and soche one as soweth discorde amonge brethren.
The blessings of obedience.
Proverbs 6:20 My sonne, kepe thy fathers commaundement, and forsake not the lawe of thy mother. Proverbs 6:21 Put them vp together in thyne herte, and bynde them aboute thy neck. Proverbs 6:22 That they may leade the where thou goest, preserue the when thou art a slepe, and that when þu awakest, thou mayest talke of them. Proverbs 6:23 For the commaundement is a lanterne, and the lawe a lyght: yee chastenyng and nourtoure is the waye of lyfe Proverbs 6:24 that they may kepe the from the euell woman, and from the flatteryng tonge of þe harlote:
The mischiefs of whoredom.
Proverbs 6:25 that thou lust not after her beauty in thyne herte, and lest thou be taken with her fayre lookes. Proverbs 6:26 An harlot wyll make a man to begge his bread, and a woman wyll hunt for the precyous lyfe. Proverbs 6:27 Maye a man take fyre in hys bosome and hys clothes not be brent? Proverbs 6:28 Or can one go vpon hote coales, and hys fete not be hurte? Proverbs 6:29 Euen so, whosoeuer goeth into his neyghbours wyfe, and toucheth her, cannot be vngylty. Proverbs 6:30 Men do not vtterly despyse a thefe that stealeth to satisfye hys soule, when he is hungry: Proverbs 6:31 but yf he maye be gotten, he restoreth agayne seuen tymes as moche, or els he maketh recompense with all the good of hys house. Proverbs 6:32 But whoso committeth aduoutry with a woman, he is a foole and bryngeth his lyfe to destruction. Proverbs 6:33 He getteth hym selfe also shame and dishonour, soche as shall neuer be put out. Proverbs 6:34 For the gelousy and wrath of the man wyll not be intreated, Proverbs 6:35 no though thou woldest offre him great gyftes to make amendes, he will not receaue them.
