Prov 1:1 The proverbs of Shalamah son of Dud, sovereign of Yashara'Al:
Prov 1:2 For knowing wisdom and discipline, For understanding the words of understanding,
Prov 1:3 For receiving the discipline of wisdom, Righteousness, right-ruling, and straightness;
Prov 1:4 For giving insight to the simple, Knowledge and discretion to the young.
Prov 1:5 The wise one hears and increases learning, And the understanding one gets wise counsel,
Prov 1:6 For understanding a proverb and a figure, The words of the wise and their riddles.
Prov 1:7 The fear of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 is the beginning of knowledge; Fools despise wisdom and discipline.
Prov 1:8 My son, heed the discipline of your father, And do not forsake the Torat of your mother;
Prov 1:9 For they are a fair wreath on your head, And chains about your neck.
Prov 1:10 My son, if sinners entice you, do not give in.
Prov 1:11 If they say, “Come with us, let us lie in wait for blood, Let us ambush the innocent without cause.
Prov 1:12 “Let us swallow them alive like the grave, And entirely, like those going down to the pit.
Prov 1:13 “Let us find all precious goods, Let us fill our houses with spoil.
Prov 1:14 “Cast in your lot among us, Let us all have one purse,”
Prov 1:15 My son, do not walk in the way with them, Keep your foot from their path;
Prov 1:16 For their feet run to evil, And they hurry to shed blood.
Prov 1:17 For in vain the net is spread In the sight of any bird.
Prov 1:18 But they lie in wait for their own blood, They ambush their own lives.
Prov 1:19 Such are the ways of everyone greedy for gain; It takes away the life of its owners.
Prov 1:20 Wisdom calls aloud outside; She raises her voice in the broad places.
Prov 1:21 At the head of the noisy streets she cries out, At the openings of the gates, In the city she speaks her words:
Prov 1:22 “How long, you simple ones, Would you love simplicity, And shall scoffers delight in their scoffing, And fools hate knowledge?
Prov 1:23 “Turn at my reproof. See, I pour out my spirit on you, I make my words known to you.
Prov 1:24 “Because I called and you refused, I have stretched out my hand and no one inclined,
Prov 1:25 “And you spurned all my counsel, And would not yield to my reproof,
Prov 1:26 “Let me also laugh at your calamity, Mock when your dread comes,
Prov 1:27 “When your dread comes like a storm, And your calamity comes like a whirlwind, When distress and anguish come upon you.
Prov 1:28 “Let them then call on me, but I answer not; Let them seek me, but not find me.
Prov 1:29 “Because they hated knowledge And did not choose the fear of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄,
Prov 1:30 “They did not accept my counsel, They despised all my reproof,
Prov 1:31 “Therefore let them eat the fruit of their own way, And be filled with their own counsels.
Prov 1:32 “For the turning away of the simple slays them, And the complacency of fools destroys them.
Prov 1:33 “But whoever listens to me dwells safely, And is at ease from the dread of evil.”
Prov 2:1 My son, if you accept my words, And treasure up my commands with you,
Prov 2:2 So that you make your ear attend to wisdom, Incline your heart to understanding;
Prov 2:3 For if you cry for discernment, Lift up your voice for understanding,
Prov 2:4 If you seek her as silver, And search for her as hidden treasures,
Prov 2:5 Then you would understand the fear of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, And find the knowledge of Alahiym.
Prov 2:6 For 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 gives wisdom; Out of His mouth come knowledge and understanding.
Prov 2:7 And He treasures up stability for the straight, A shield to those walking blamelessly,
Prov 2:8 To watch over the paths of right-ruling, And the way of His kind ones He guards.
Prov 2:9 Then you would understand righteousness And right-ruling, and straightness – Every good path.
Prov 2:10 For wisdom would enter your heart, And knowledge be pleasant to your being,
Prov 2:11 Discretion would guard you; Understanding would watch over you,
Prov 2:12 To deliver you from the evil way, From the man who speaks perversities,
Prov 2:13 Those who leave the paths of straightness To walk in the ways of darkness;
Prov 2:14 Who rejoice to do evil; They delight in the perversities of evil;
Prov 2:15 Whose paths are crooked, And they are perverted in their ways;
Prov 2:16 To deliver you from the strange woman, From the foreigner who flatters with her words,
Prov 2:17 Who forsakes the companion of her youth, And has forgotten the covenant of her Alahiym.
Prov 2:18 For her house has sunk down to death, And her paths to the dead;
Prov 2:19 None going in to her does return, Nor do they reach the paths of life –
Prov 2:20 So walk in the way of goodness, And guard the paths of righteousness.
Prov 2:21 For the straight shall dwell in the earth, And the perfect be left in it;
Prov 2:22 But the wrong shall be cut off from the earth, And the treacherous ones plucked out of it.
Prov 3:1 My son, do not forget my Torat, And let your heart watch over my commands;
Prov 3:2 For length of days and long life And peace they add to you.
Prov 3:3 Let not kindness and truth forsake you – Bind them around your neck, Write them on the tablet of your heart,
Prov 3:4 Thus finding favor and good insight In the eyes of Alahiym and man.
Prov 3:5 Trust in 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding;
Prov 3:6 Know Him in all your ways, And He makes all your paths straight.
Prov 3:7 Do not be wise in your own eyes; Fear 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 and turn away from evil.
Prov 3:8 It is healing to your navel, And moistening to your bones.
Prov 3:9 Esteem 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 with your goods, And with the first-fruits of all your increase;
Prov 3:10 Then your storehouses shall be filled with plenty, And your vats overflow with new wine.
Prov 3:11 My son, do not despise the discipline of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, And do not loathe His reproof;
Prov 3:12 For whom 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 loves He reproves, As a father the son whom he delights in.
Prov 3:13 Blessed is the man who has found wisdom, And the man who gets understanding;
Prov 3:14 For the gain from it is better Than gain from silver, And its increase than fine gold.
Prov 3:15 She is more precious than rubies, And all your delights are not comparable to her.
Prov 3:16 Length of days is in her right hand, Riches and esteem in her left hand.
Prov 3:17 Her ways are pleasant ways, And all her paths are peace.
Prov 3:18 She is a tree of life to those taking hold of her, And blessed are all who retain her.
Prov 3:19 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 founded the earth by wisdom; He established the shamiym by understanding;
Prov 3:20 By His knowledge the depths were broken up, And clouds drop down dew.
Prov 3:21 My son, let them not depart from your eyes; Watch over sound wisdom and discretion;
Prov 3:22 Then they become life to your being And an adorning to your neck.
Prov 3:23 Then you would walk safely in your way, And your foot would not stumble.
Prov 3:24 When you lie down, you need not be afraid. And you shall lie down and your sleep shall be sweet.
Prov 3:25 Do not be afraid of sudden dread, Nor of the ruin of the wrong when it comes;
Prov 3:26 For 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 is at your side, And He shall guard your foot from being caught.
Prov 3:27 Do not withhold good from those who deserve it, When it is in the power of your hand to do so.
Prov 3:28 Do not say to your neighbor, “Go, and come back, and tomorrow I give it,” When you have it with you.
Prov 3:29 Do not plan evil against your neighbor, Seeing he dwells safely beside you.
Prov 3:30 Do not strive with a man without cause, If he has done you no evil.
Prov 3:31 Do not envy a cruel man, And choose none of his ways;
Prov 3:32 For the perverse one is an abomination to 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, And His secret counsel is with the straight.
Prov 3:33 The curse of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 is on the house of the wrong, But He blesses the home of the righteous.
Prov 3:34 He certainly scoffs the scoffers, But gives favor to the humble.
Prov 3:35 The wise do inherit esteem, But fools are bearing away shame!
Prov 4:1 Children, listen to the discipline of a father, And give attention to know understanding;
Prov 4:2 For I gave you good instruction: Do not forsake my Torat.
Prov 4:3 For I was my father’s son, Tender and the only one in the eyes of my mother,
Prov 4:4 Then he taught me and said to me, “Let your heart hold fast my words; Guard my commands, and live.
Prov 4:5 “Get wisdom! Get understanding! Do not forget, and do not turn away From the words of my mouth.
Prov 4:6 “Do not leave her, and let her guard you; Love her, and let her watch over you.
Prov 4:7 “The beginning of wisdom is: Get wisdom! And with all your getting, get understanding.
Prov 4:8 “Exalt her, and let her uplift you; She brings you esteem when you embrace her.
Prov 4:9 “She gives your head a fair wreath, She shields you with an adorning crown.”
Prov 4:10 Hear, my son, and accept my words, And let the years of your life be many.
Prov 4:11 I have taught you in the way of wisdom, I have led you in straight paths.
Prov 4:12 When you walk your steps shall not be hindered, And if you run you shall not stumble.
Prov 4:13 Hold fast to discipline, do not let go; Watch over her, for she is your life.
Prov 4:14 Do not enter the path of the wrong, And do not walk in the way of evil-doers.
Prov 4:15 Avoid it, do not pass by it; Turn away from it and pass on.
Prov 4:16 For they do not sleep unless they have done evil. And their sleep is taken away unless they make someone fall.
Prov 4:17 For they have eaten the bread of wrongdoing, And they drink the wine of violence.
Prov 4:18 But the path of the righteous is like the light of dawn, That shines ever brighter unto the perfect day.
Prov 4:19 The way of the wrong is like darkness; They do not know at what they stumble.
Prov 4:20 My son, listen to my words; Incline your ear to my sayings.
Prov 4:21 Let them not depart from your eyes; Guard them in the midst of your heart;
Prov 4:22 For they are life to those who find them, And healing to all their flesh.
Prov 4:23 Watch over your heart with all diligence, For out of it are the sources of life.
Prov 4:24 Turn away from you a crooked mouth, And put perverse lips far from you.
Prov 4:25 Let your eyes look forward, And your eyelids look straight before you.
Prov 4:26 Consider the path of your feet, And all your ways are established.
Prov 4:27 Do not turn to the right or the left; Turn your foot away from evil.
Prov 5:1 My son, listen to my wisdom; Incline your ear to my understanding,
Prov 5:2 So as to watch over discretion, And your lips guard knowledge.
Prov 5:3 For the lips of a strange woman drip honey, And her mouth is smoother than oil;
Prov 5:4 But in the end she is bitter as wormwood, Sharp as a two-edged sword.
Prov 5:5 Her feet go down to death, Her steps lay hold of the grave.
Prov 5:6 She does not consider the path of life; Her ways are unstable – you do not know it.
Prov 5:7 So now, listen to me, you children, And do not turn away from the words of my mouth.
Prov 5:8 Keep your way far from her, And do not come near the door of her house,
Prov 5:9 Lest you give your splendor to others, And your years to one who is cruel;
Prov 5:10 Lest strangers be filled with your strength, And your labors go to the house of a foreigner.
Prov 5:11 Then you shall howl in your latter end, When your flesh and your body are consumed,
Prov 5:12 And shall say, “How I have hated discipline, And my heart has despised reproof!
Prov 5:13 “And I have not heeded the voice of my teachers, And I have not inclined my ear to those who instructed me!
Prov 5:14 “In a little while I was in all evil, In the midst of an assembly and a congregation.”
Prov 5:15 Drink water from your own cistern, And running water from your own well.
Prov 5:16 Should your springs be scattered abroad, Rivers of water in the streets?
Prov 5:17 And not for strangers with you.
Prov 5:18 Let your fountain be blessed, And rejoice with the wife of your youth –
Prov 5:19 A loving deer and a pleasant doe! Let her breasts satisfy you at all times. And be captivated by her love always.
Prov 5:20 For why should you, my son, Be captivated by a strange woman, And embrace the bosom of a foreigner?
Prov 5:21 For the ways of man Are before the eyes of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, And He considers all his paths.
Prov 5:22 The wrong one is entrapped In his own crookednesses, And he is caught in the cords of his sin.
Prov 5:23 He dies for lack of discipline, And in the greatness of his folly He goes astray.
Prov 6:1 My son, if you: Have become guarantor for your friend, Have shaken hands in pledge for a stranger,
Prov 6:2 Have been snared by the words of your own mouth, Have been caught by the words of your mouth –
Prov 6:3 Do this at once, my son, and deliver yourself, For you have come into the hand of your friend: Go, humble yourself, and urge your friend.
Prov 6:4 Give no sleep to your eyes, Nor slumber to your eyelids.
Prov 6:5 Deliver yourself like a gazelle from the hunter’s hand, And like a bird from the hand of the trapper.
Prov 6:6 Go to the ant, you lazy one! See her ways and be wise,
Prov 6:7 Which, having no commander, overseer or ruler,
Prov 6:8 Provides her supplies in the summer, Gathers her food in the harvest.
Prov 6:9 How long would you lie down, O lazy one? When do you arise from your sleep?
Prov 6:10 A little sleep, a little slumber, A little folding of the hands to lie down;
Prov 6:11 And your poverty shall come like a prowler, And your need as an armed man.
Prov 6:12 A man of Baliy'aul, a wicked man, Walks with a perverse mouth,
Prov 6:13 Winks with his eyes, shuffles his feet, Points with his fingers;
Prov 6:14 Perverseness is in his heart, plotting evil at all times, He sends out strife.
Prov 6:15 Therefore his calamity comes suddenly; Instantly he is broken, And there is no healing.
Prov 6:16 These six matters 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 hates, And seven are an abomination to Him:
Prov 6:17 A proud look, A lying tongue, And hands shedding innocent blood,
Prov 6:18 A heart devising wicked schemes, Feet quick to run to evil,
Prov 6:19 A false witness breathing out lies, And one who causes strife among brothers.
Prov 6:20 My son, watch over your father’s command, And do not forsake the Torat of your mother.
Prov 6:21 Bind them on your heart always; Tie them around your neck.
Prov 6:22 When you are walking about, it leads you; When you lie down, it guards you. And when you have woken up, It talks to you.
Prov 6:23 For the command is a lamp, And the Torah a light, And reproofs of discipline a way of life,
Prov 6:24 To guard you against an evil woman, From the flattering tongue of a strange woman.
Prov 6:25 Do not desire her prettiness in your heart, Neither let her captivate you with her eyelids.
Prov 6:26 For because of a whore One is brought to a crust of bread. And an adulteress hunts a precious life.
Prov 6:27 Would a man take fire to his bosom, And his garments not be burned?
Prov 6:28 Would a man walk on hot coals, And his feet not be scorched?
Prov 6:29 So is he who goes in to his neighbor’s wife; None who touches her goes unpunished.
Prov 6:30 They do not despise a thief If he steals to satisfy his appetite when he is starving.
Prov 6:31 Yet if he is caught he repays sevenfold; He gives all the wealth of his house.
Prov 6:32 He who commits adultery with a woman lacks heart; He who does it destroys his own life.
Prov 6:33 He finds smiting and shame, And his reproach is not wiped away.
Prov 6:34 For jealousy enrages a man, And he does not spare in the day of vengeance.
Prov 6:35 He does not regard any ransom, Nor accept your bribe, however great!
Prov 7:1 My son, guard my words, And treasure up my commands with you.
Prov 7:2 Guard my commands and live, And my Torah as the apple of your eye.
Prov 7:3 Bind them on your fingers; Write them on the tablet of your heart.
Prov 7:4 Say to wisdom, “You are my sister,” And call understanding a close friend,
Prov 7:5 To guard you against the strange woman, Against the foreigner who flatters with her words.
Prov 7:6 For at the window of my house I looked through my lattice,
Prov 7:7 And I saw among the simple, I perceived among the youths, A young man lacking heart,
Prov 7:8 Passing through the street near her corner; And he went the way to her house
Prov 7:9 In the twilight, in the evening, In the black and dark night.
Prov 7:10 And look, a woman met him, Dressed like a whore, With a hidden heart.
Prov 7:11 She was boisterous and stubborn, Her feet did not stay at her own house.
Prov 7:12 Now in the street, Now in the square, And at every corner she lurks.
Prov 7:13 And she took hold of him and kissed him; She hardened her face and said to him:
Prov 7:14 “Peace offerings are with me; Today I have paid my vows.
Prov 7:15 “Therefore I came out to meet you, To earnestly seek your face, and I found you.
Prov 7:16 “I have spread my bed with coverings, colored linens of Matsriym.
Prov 7:17 “I have sprinkled my bed with myrrh, aloes, and cinnamon.
Prov 7:18 “Come, let us take our fill of love until morning; Let us delight ourselves with love.
Prov 7:19 “For my husband is not at home; He has gone on a long journey;
Prov 7:20 “He took a bag of silver with him; He comes home on the day of the full moon.”
Prov 7:21 With her many words she leads him astray, With her smooth lips she seduces him.
Prov 7:22 He goes after her immediately, Like an ox he goes to the slaughter, And as in chains, a fool to the punishment,
Prov 7:23 Till an arrow strikes through his liver; Like a bird rushing into a snare, And did not know it would take his life.
Prov 7:24 And now, listen to me, you children; Pay attention to the words of my mouth:
Prov 7:25 Do not let your heart turn aside to her ways, Do not go astray in her paths.
Prov 7:26 For many are the wounded she has caused to fall, And numerous all her slain ones.
Prov 7:27 Her house is the way to the grave, Going down to the rooms of death.
Prov 8:1 Does not wisdom call, And understanding lift up her voice?
Prov 8:2 On the top of the heights along the way, Between the paths she has taken her stand.
Prov 8:3 Beside the gates, leading to the city, At the entrances, she shouts:
Prov 8:4 “O men, I call, to you, And my voice is to the sons of men.
Prov 8:5 “You simple ones, understand insight, And you fools, be of an understanding heart.

Prov 8:9 “All of them plain to him who understands, And straight to those who find knowledge.

Prov 8:28 “When He set the clouds above, When He made the fountains of the deep strong,
Prov 8:29 “When He gave to the sea its limit, So that the waters would not transgress His command, When He decreed the foundations of the earth,
Prov 8:30 “Then I was beside Him, a master workman, And I was His delight, day by day Rejoicing before Him all the time,
Prov 8:31 “Rejoicing in the world, His earth; And my delights were with the sons of men.
