Daily Reading Proverbs 6

Listen & Read along 

1  My son, if thou be surety for thy friend, if thou hast stricken thy hand with a stranger,

2  Thou art snared with the words of thy mouth, thou art taken with the words of thy mouth.

3  Do this now, my son, and deliver thyself, when thou art come into the hand of thy friend; go, humble thyself, and make sure thy friend.

4  Give not sleep to thine eyes, nor slumber to thine eyelids.

5  Deliver thyself as a roe from the hand of the hunter, and as a bird from the hand of the fowler.

6  Go to the ant, thou sluggard; consider her ways, and be wise:

7  Which having no guide, overseer, or ruler,

8  Provideth her meat in the summer, and gathereth her food in the harvest.

9  How long wilt thou sleep, O sluggard? when wilt thou arise out of thy sleep?

10  Yet a little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to sleep:

11  So shall thy poverty come as one that travelleth, and thy want as an armed man.

12  A naughty person, a wicked man, walketh with a froward mouth.

13  He winketh with his eyes, he speaketh with his feet, he teacheth with his fingers;

14  Frowardness is in his heart, he deviseth mischief continually; he soweth discord.

15  Therefore shall his calamity come suddenly; suddenly shall he be broken without remedy.

16  These six things doth the LORD hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him:

17  A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood,

18  An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief,

19  A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren.

20  My son, keep thy father’s commandment, and forsake not the law of thy mother:

21  Bind them continually upon thine heart, and tie them about thy neck.

22  When thou goest, it shall lead thee; when thou sleepest, it shall keep thee; and when thou awakest, it shall talk with thee.

23  For the commandment is a lamp; and the law is light; and reproofs of instruction are the way of life:

24  To keep thee from the evil woman, from the flattery of the tongue of a strange woman.

25  Lust not after her beauty in thine heart; neither let her take thee with her eyelids.

26  For by means of a whorish woman a man is brought to a piece of bread: and the adulteress will hunt for the precious life.

27  Can a man take fire in his bosom, and his clothes not be burned?

28  Can one go upon hot coals, and his feet not be burned?

29  So he that goeth in to his neighbour’s wife; whosoever toucheth her shall not be innocent.

30  Men do not despise a thief, if he steal to satisfy his soul when he is hungry;

31  But if he be found, he shall restore sevenfold; he shall give all the substance of his house.

32  But whoso committeth adultery with a woman lacketh understanding: he that doeth it destroyeth his own soul.

33  A wound and dishonour shall he get; and his reproach shall not be wiped away.

34  For jealousy is the rage of a man: therefore he will not spare in the day of vengeance.

35  He will not regard any ransom; neither will he rest content, though thou givest many gifts.

About liv4Christ4ever

Seeking to promote true life through Jesus Christ by making the Gospel relevant to our lives today. Presenting the word of God as the final authority on how we as believers, hypocrites and those yet to believe should live in order to please our Creator. One thing is sure, the creature (all creation) was created for a purpose. We will do well by acknowledging our Creator and using His gift of free will to accomplish His purposes. According to scripture “Every knee will bow (Submission) and every tongue will confess (Confession)” to Jesus Christ the Lord. We just choose to submit and confess Christ’s Lordship daily that we might live with Him now and forever.

Discussion

One thought on “Daily Reading Proverbs 6

  1. 6 six things God hates. In the list of 6 we see lying twice. Telling something to anyone you know not be true is the first one (lying tongue). Repeating a lie told to you by someone else as truth is bearing false witness. Sounds like we should consider our words to see whether God hates them. The 7th in order is sowing discord between brethren. I read as that one alone being the 7th is the abomination referenced in verse 16. Brethren are not only in families or in the local church but also spans into close friendships and the body of Christ at large. So today and everyday going forward consider your conversations about others did you build the family or divide it. Never lie but even if it’s true should you really say that about them?
