Warnings Against Foolishness

1My son, if you be surety for your friend, if you have stricken your hand with a stranger, 2You are snared with the words of your mouth, you are taken with the words of your mouth. 3Do this now, my son, and deliver yourself, when you are come into the hand of your friend; go, humble yourself, and make sure your friend. 4Give not sleep to your eyes, nor slumber to your eyelids. 5Deliver yourself as a roe from the hand of the hunter, and as a bird from the hand of the fowler. 6Go to the ant, you sluggard; consider her ways, and be wise: 7Which having no guide, overseer, or ruler, 8Provides her meat in the summer, and gathers her food in the harvest. 9How long will you sleep, O sluggard? when will you arise out of your sleep? 10Yet a little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to sleep: 11So shall your poverty come as one that travels, and your want as an armed man. 12A naughty person, a wicked man, walks with a fraudulent mouth. 13He winks with his eyes, he speaks with his feet, he teaches with his fingers; 14Frowardness is in his heart, he devises mischief continually; he sows discord. 15Therefore shall his calamity come suddenly; suddenly shall he be broken without remedy. 16These six things does the LORD hate: yes, seven are an abomination to him: 17A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, 18An heart that devises wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief, 19A false witness that speaks lies, and he that sows discord among brothers.
