The proverbs of Solomon. A wise son makes a glad father, but a foolish son is a sorrow to his mother. … Listen to your father who gave you life, and do not despise your mother when she is old. … The eye that mocks a father and scorns to obey a mother will be picked out by the ravens of the valley and eaten by the vultures. … For the lips of a forbidden woman drip honey, and her speech is smoother than oil, but in the end she is bitter as wormwood, sharp as a two-edged sword. Her feet go down to death; her steps follow the path to Sheol; … Keep your way far from her, and do not go near the door of her house, … Drink water from your own cistern, flowing water from your own well. … Let your fountain be blessed, and rejoice in the wife of your youth, … Do not desire her beauty in your heart, and do not let her capture you with her eyelashes; … Can a man carry fire next to his chest and his clothes not be burned? Or can one walk on hot coals and his feet not be scorched? … A continual dripping on a rainy day and a quarrelsome wife are alike; … It is better to live in a desert land than with a quarrelsome and fretful woman. … Charm is deceitful, and beauty is vain, but a woman who fears the LORD is to be praised.
