Most Popular Bible Verses in Proverbs 6
There are six things which the LORD hates, Yes, seven which are an abomination to Him:
Go to the ant, O sluggard, Observe her ways and be wise,
Prepares her food in the summer And gathers her provision in the harvest.
How long will you lie down, O sluggard? When will you arise from your sleep?
Your poverty will come in like a vagabond And your need like an armed man.
"A little sleep, a little slumber, A little folding of the hands to rest"--
Who winks with his eyes, who signals with his feet, Who points with his fingers;
A false witness who utters lies, And one who spreads strife among brothers.
A worthless person, a wicked man, Is the one who walks with a perverse mouth,
Therefore his calamity will come suddenly; Instantly he will be broken and there will be no healing.
My son, if you have become surety for your neighbor, Have given a pledge for a stranger,
Can a man take fire in his bosom And his clothes not be burned?
Who with perversity in his heart continually devises evil, Who spreads strife.
Haughty eyes, a lying tongue, And hands that shed innocent blood,
A heart that devises wicked plans, Feet that run rapidly to evil,
Do not desire her beauty in your heart, Nor let her capture you with her eyelids.
To keep you from the evil woman, From the smooth tongue of the adulteress.
Bind them continually on your heart; Tie them around your neck.
If you have been snared with the words of your mouth, Have been caught with the words of your mouth,
When you walk about, they will guide you; When you sleep, they will watch over you; And when you awake, they will talk to you.
Do this then, my son, and deliver yourself; Since you have come into the hand of your neighbor, Go, humble yourself, and importune your neighbor.
For on account of a harlot one is reduced to a loaf of bread, And an adulteress hunts for the precious life.
Men do not despise a thief if he steals To satisfy himself when he is hungry;
Deliver yourself like a gazelle from the hunter's hand And like a bird from the hand of the fowler.
Give no sleep to your eyes, Nor slumber to your eyelids;
Or can a man walk on hot coals And his feet not be scorched?
So is the one who goes in to his neighbor's wife; Whoever touches her will not go unpunished.
My son, observe the commandment of your father And do not forsake the teaching of your mother;
For the commandment is a lamp and the teaching is light; And reproofs for discipline are the way of life
The one who commits adultery with a woman is lacking sense; He who would destroy himself does it.
For jealousy enrages a man, And he will not spare in the day of vengeance.
But when he is found, he must repay sevenfold; He must give all the substance of his house.
Wounds and disgrace he will find, And his reproach will not be blotted out.
