Proverbs Scripture Reading - Proverbs 5:7-14

Proverbs 5:7-14 English Standard Version

7 And now, O sons, listen to me,

    and do not depart from the words of my mouth.

8 Keep your way far from her,

    and do not go near the door of her house,

9 lest you give your honor to others

    and your years to the merciless,

10 lest strangers take their fill of your strength,

    and your labors go to the house of a foreigner,

11 and at the end of your life you groan,

    when your flesh and body are consumed,

12 and you say, “How I hated discipline,

    and my heart despised reproof!

13 I did not listen to the voice of my teachers

    or incline my ear to my instructors.

14 I am at the brink of utter ruin

    in the assembled congregation.”
