Proverbs 5:1-6, You May Observe Discretion


1My son, give attention to my wisdom,

Incline your ear to my understanding;

2That you may observe discretion

And your lips may reserve knowledge.

3For the lips of an adulteress drip honey

And smoother than oil is her speech;

4But in the end she is bitter as wormwood,

Sharp as a two-edged sword.

5Her feet go down to death,

Her steps take hold of Sheol.

6She does not ponder the path of life;

Her ways are unstable, she does not know it.
