Proverbs Chapter 6 מִשְׁלֵי

א  בְּנִי, אִם-עָרַבְתָּ לְרֵעֶךָ;    תָּקַעְתָּ לַזָּר כַּפֶּיךָ. 1 My son, if thou art become surety for thy neighbour, if thou hast struck thy hands for a stranger--
ב  נוֹקַשְׁתָּ בְאִמְרֵי-פִיךָ;    נִלְכַּדְתָּ, בְּאִמְרֵי-פִיךָ. 2 Thou art snared by the words of thy mouth, thou art caught by the words of thy mouth--
ג  עֲשֵׂה זֹאת אֵפוֹא בְּנִי, וְהִנָּצֵל--    כִּי בָאתָ בְכַף-רֵעֶךָ;
לֵךְ הִתְרַפֵּס,    וּרְהַב רֵעֶיךָ.
3 Do this now, my son, and deliver thyself, seeing thou art come into the hand of thy neighbour; {N}
go, humble thyself, and urge thy neighbour.
ד  אַל-תִּתֵּן שֵׁנָה לְעֵינֶיךָ;    וּתְנוּמָה, לְעַפְעַפֶּיךָ. 4 Give not sleep to thine eyes, nor slumber to thine eyelids.
ה  הִנָּצֵל, כִּצְבִי מִיָּד;    וּכְצִפּוֹר, מִיַּד יָקוּשׁ. 5 Deliver thyself as a gazelle from the hand [of the hunter], and as a bird from the hand of the fowler. {P}
ו  לֵךְ-אֶל-נְמָלָה עָצֵל;    רְאֵה דְרָכֶיהָ וַחֲכָם. 6 Go to the ant, thou sluggard; consider her ways, and be wise;
ז  אֲשֶׁר אֵין-לָהּ קָצִין--    שֹׁטֵר וּמֹשֵׁל. 7 Which having no chief, overseer, or ruler,
ח  תָּכִין בַּקַּיִץ לַחְמָהּ;    אָגְרָה בַקָּצִיר, מַאֲכָלָהּ. 8 Provideth her bread in the summer, and gatherest her food in the harvest.
ט  עַד-מָתַי עָצֵל תִּשְׁכָּב;    מָתַי, תָּקוּם מִשְּׁנָתֶךָ. 9 How long wilt thou sleep, O sluggard? When wilt thou arise out of thy sleep?
י  מְעַט שֵׁנוֹת, מְעַט תְּנוּמוֹת;    מְעַט, חִבֻּק יָדַיִם לִשְׁכָּב. 10 'Yet a little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to sleep'--
יא  וּבָא-כִמְהַלֵּךְ רֵאשֶׁךָ;    וּמַחְסֹרְךָ, כְּאִישׁ מָגֵן. 11 So shall thy poverty come as a runner, and thy want as an armed man. {P}
יב  אָדָם בְּלִיַּעַל, אִישׁ אָוֶן;    הוֹלֵךְ, עִקְּשׁוּת פֶּה. 12 A base person, a man of iniquity, is he that walketh with a froward mouth;
יג  קֹרֵץ בְּעֵינָו, מֹלֵל בְּרַגְלָו;    מֹרֶה, בְּאֶצְבְּעֹתָיו. 13 That winketh with his eyes, that scrapeth with his feet, that pointeth with his fingers;
יד  תַּהְפֻּכוֹת, בְּלִבּוֹ--חֹרֵשׁ רָע בְּכָל-עֵת;    מדנים (מִדְיָנִים) יְשַׁלֵּחַ. 14 Frowardness is in his heart, he deviseth evil continually; he soweth discord.
טו  עַל-כֵּן--פִּתְאֹם, יָבוֹא אֵידוֹ;    פֶּתַע יִשָּׁבֵר, וְאֵין מַרְפֵּא. 15 Therefore shall his calamity come suddenly; on a sudden shall he be broken, and that without remedy. {P}
טז  שֶׁשׁ-הֵנָּה, שָׂנֵא יְהוָה;    וְשֶׁבַע, תועבות (תּוֹעֲבַת) נַפְשׁוֹ. 16 There are six things which the LORD hateth, yea, seven which are an abomination unto Him:
יז  עֵינַיִם רָמוֹת, לְשׁוֹן שָׁקֶר;    וְיָדַיִם, שֹׁפְכוֹת דָּם-נָקִי. 17 Haughty eyes, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood;
יח  לֵב--חֹרֵשׁ, מַחְשְׁבוֹת אָוֶן;    רַגְלַיִם מְמַהֲרוֹת, לָרוּץ לָרָעָה. 18 A heart that deviseth wicked thoughts, feet that are swift in running to evil;
יט  יָפִיחַ כְּזָבִים, עֵד שָׁקֶר;    וּמְשַׁלֵּחַ מְדָנִים, בֵּין אַחִים. 19 A false witness that breatheth out lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren. {P}
כ  נְצֹר בְּנִי, מִצְוַת אָבִיךָ;    וְאַל-תִּטֹּשׁ, תּוֹרַת אִמֶּךָ. 20 My son, keep the commandment of thy father, and forsake not the teaching of thy mother;
כא  קָשְׁרֵם עַל-לִבְּךָ תָמִיד;    עָנְדֵם, עַל-גַּרְגְּרֹתֶךָ. 21 Bind them continually upon thy heart, tie them about thy neck.
כב  בְּהִתְהַלֶּכְךָ, תַּנְחֶה אֹתָךְ--    בְּשָׁכְבְּךָ, תִּשְׁמֹר עָלֶיךָ;
וַהֲקִיצוֹתָ,    הִיא תְשִׂיחֶךָ.
22 When thou walkest, it shall lead thee, when thou liest down, it shall watch over thee; and when thou awakest, it shall talk with thee.
כג  כִּי נֵר מִצְוָה, וְתוֹרָה אוֹר;    וְדֶרֶךְ חַיִּים, תּוֹכְחוֹת מוּסָר. 23 For the commandment is a lamp, and the teaching is light, and reproofs of instruction are the way of life;
כד  לִשְׁמָרְךָ, מֵאֵשֶׁת רָע;    מֵחֶלְקַת, לָשׁוֹן נָכְרִיָּה. 24 To keep thee from the evil woman, from the smoothness of the alien tongue.
כה  אַל-תַּחְמֹד יָפְיָהּ, בִּלְבָבֶךָ;    וְאַל-תִּקָּחֲךָ, בְּעַפְעַפֶּיהָ. 25 Lust not after her beauty in thy heart; neither let her captivate thee with her eyelids.
כו  כִּי בְעַד-אִשָּׁה זוֹנָה,    עַד-כִּכַּר-לָחֶם:
וְאֵשֶׁת אִישׁ--    נֶפֶשׁ יְקָרָה תָצוּד.
26 For on account of a harlot a man is brought to a loaf of bread, but the adulteress hunteth for the precious life. {P}
כז  הֲיַחְתֶּה אִישׁ אֵשׁ בְּחֵיקוֹ;    וּבְגָדָיו, לֹא תִשָּׂרַפְנָה. 27 Can a man take fire in his bosom, and his clothes not be burned?
כח  אִם-יְהַלֵּךְ אִישׁ, עַל-הַגֶּחָלִים;    וְרַגְלָיו, לֹא תִכָּוֶינָה. 28 Or can one walk upon hot coals, and his feet not be scorched?
כט  כֵּן--הַבָּא, אֶל-אֵשֶׁת רֵעֵהוּ:    לֹא-יִנָּקֶה, כָּל-הַנֹּגֵעַ בָּהּ. 29 So he that goeth in to his neighbour's wife; whosoever toucheth her shall not go unpunished.
ל  לֹא-יָבוּזוּ לַגַּנָּב, כִּי יִגְנוֹב--    לְמַלֵּא נַפְשׁוֹ, כִּי יִרְעָב. 30 Men do not despise a thief, if he steal to satisfy his soul when he is hungry;
לא  וְנִמְצָא, יְשַׁלֵּם שִׁבְעָתָיִם:    אֶת-כָּל-הוֹן בֵּיתוֹ יִתֵּן. 31 But if he be found, he must restore sevenfold, he must give all the substance of his house.
לב  נֹאֵף אִשָּׁה חֲסַר-לֵב;    מַשְׁחִית נַפְשׁוֹ, הוּא יַעֲשֶׂנָּה. 32 He that committeth adultery with a woman lacketh understanding; he doeth it that would destroy his own soul.
לג  נֶגַע-וְקָלוֹן יִמְצָא;    וְחֶרְפָּתוֹ, לֹא תִמָּחֶה. 33 Wounds and dishonour shall he get, and his reproach shall not be wiped away.
לד  כִּי-קִנְאָה חֲמַת-גָּבֶר;    וְלֹא-יַחְמוֹל, בְּיוֹם נָקָם. 34 For jealousy is the rage of a man, and he will not spare in the day of vengeance.
לה  לֹא-יִשָּׂא, פְּנֵי כָל-כֹּפֶר;    וְלֹא-יֹאבֶה, כִּי תַרְבֶּה-שֹּׁחַד. 35 He will not regard any ransom; neither will he rest content, though thou givest many gifts. {P}
