The Book of Proverbs: Chapter 23, Verse 13 (Proverbs 23:13)
|«Proverbs Chapter 22||Proverbs Chapter 24»|
Wilt thou set thine eyes upon that which is not? for riches certainly make themselves wings; they fly away as an eagle toward heaven.
Eat thou not the bread of him that hath an evil eye, neither desire thou his dainty meats:
For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he: Eat and drink, saith he to thee; but his heart is not with thee.
Withhold not correction from the child: for if thou beatest him with the rod, he shall not die.
Let not thine heart envy sinners: but be thou in the fear of the LORD all the day long.
For the drunkard and the glutton shall come to poverty: and drowsiness shall clothe a man with rags.
Hearken unto thy father that begat thee, and despise not thy mother when she is old.
The father of the righteous shall greatly rejoice: and he that begetteth a wise child shall have joy of him.
Who hath woe? who hath sorrow? who hath contentions? who hath babbling? who hath wounds without cause? who hath redness of eyes?
Look not thou upon the wine when it is red, when it giveth his colour in the cup, when it moveth itself aright.
Thine eyes shall behold strange women, and thine heart shall utter perverse things.
Yea, thou shalt be as he that lieth down in the midst of the sea, or as he that lieth upon the top of a mast.
There is a generation, whose teeth are as swords, and their jaw teeth as knives, to devour the poor from off the earth, and the needy from among men.
