6:1 My son, if you have become collateral for your neighbor, If you have struck your hands in pledge for a stranger;
6:3 Do this now, my son, and deliver yourself, Seeing you have come into the hand of your neighbor. Go, humble yourself. Press your plea with your neighbor.
6:5 Free yourself, like a gazelle from the hand of the hunter, Like a bird from the snare of the fowler.
6:6 Go to the ant, you sluggard. Consider her ways, and be wise;
6:7 Which having no chief, Overseer, or ruler,
6:11 So your poverty will come as a robber, And your scarcity as an armed man.
6:12 A worthless person, a man of iniquity, Is he who walks with a perverse mouth;
6:14 In whose heart is perverseness, Who devises evil continually, Who always sows discord.
6:15 Therefore his calamity will come suddenly. He will be broken suddenly, and that without remedy.
6:16 There are six things which Yahweh hates; Yes, seven which are an abomination to him:
6:19 A false witness who utters lies, And he who sows discord among brothers.
6:20 My son, keep your father`s commandment, And don`t forsake your mother`s teaching.
6:24 To keep you from the immoral woman, From the flattery of the wayward wife`s tongue.
6:29 So is he who goes in to his neighbor`s wife. Whoever touches her will not be unpunished.
6:31 But if he be found, he shall restore seven times. He shall give all the wealth of his house.
6:32 He who commits adultery with a woman is void of understanding. He who does it destroys his own soul.
6:33 He will get wounds and dishonor. His reproach will not be wiped away.
6:34 For jealousy arouses the fury of the husband. He won`t spare in the day of vengeance.
6:35 He won`t regard any ransom, Neither will he rest content, though you give many gifts.
