Proverbs 5:15-20, Rejoice in the Wife of Your Youth


15Drink water from your own cistern

And fresh water from your own well.

16Should your springs be dispersed abroad,

Streams of water in the streets?

17Let them be yours alone

And not for strangers with you.

18Let your fountain be blessed,

And rejoice in the wife of your youth.

19As a loving hind and a graceful doe,

Let her breasts satisfy you at all times;

Be exhilarated always with her love.

20For why should you, my son, be exhilarated with an adulteress

And embrace the bosom of a foreigner?
