Proverbs Scripture Reading - Proverbs 5:7-14

Proverbs 5:7-14 New King James Version (NKJV)

Therefore hear me now, my children,
And do not depart from the words of my mouth.
Remove your way far from her,
And do not go near the door of her house,
Lest you give your [a]honor to others,
And your years to the cruel one;
10 Lest aliens be filled with your [b]wealth,
And your labors go to the house of a foreigner;
11 And you mourn at last,
When your flesh and your body are consumed,
12 And say:
“How I have hated instruction,
And my heart despised correction!
13 I have not obeyed the voice of my teachers,
Nor inclined my ear to those who instructed me!
14 I was on the verge of total ruin,
In the midst of the assembly and congregation.”


  1. Proverbs 5:9 vigor
  2. Proverbs 5:10 Lit. strength
