Psalm 11

Psa 11:1 To the chief musician. A Psalm of David. I sought refuge in Jehovah; how can you say to my soul, Flee like a bird to your hill.

Psa 11:5 Jehovah tries the righteous, but His soul hates the wicked and the one loving violence.
Psa 11:6 He shall rain snares on the wicked; fire and brimstone and a scorching wind shall be the portion of their cup.

Pro 7:3 Tie them on your fingers; write them on the tablet of your heart.

Pro 7:5 so that they may keep you from the strange woman, from the alien with her flattering words.
Pro 7:6 For I looked through my lattice, at the window of my house,
Pro 7:7 and I saw among the simple ones, I observed among the sons a young man lacking heart,
Pro 7:8 passing through the street near her corner; and he went the way to her house,
Pro 7:9 in the twilight, in the evening, in the black and darkness of night.
Pro 7:10 And, behold, a woman came to meet him, with a harlot’s dress, and a guarded heart;
Pro 7:11 she is loud and stubborn; her feet do not rest in her own house.
Pro 7:12 At this time she is outside, now in the streets, and she lies in wait at every corner;
Pro 7:13 and she seizes him and kisses him; she hardens her face and says to him,
Pro 7:14 Sacrifices of peace offerings are on me, today I have completed my vows;
Pro 7:15 so I came out to meet you, earnestly to seek your face, and I have found you.
Pro 7:16 I have spread my couch with coverings, with striped cloths of Egyptian linen.

Proverb 6

Pro 6:1 My son, if you are surety for your friend, if you struck your hands with an alien,
Pro 6:2 you are snared with the words of your mouth; you are captured with the words of your own mouth.

Pro 6:10 A little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to lie down;
Pro 6:11 so shall your poverty come as one walking, and your need like an armed man.
Pro 6:12 A worthless person, a wicked man, walks with a perverse mouth,
Pro 6:13 winking with his eyes, speaking with his feet, teaching with his fingers.
Pro 6:14 Perversity is in his heart; he is plotting evil at every time, he sends out strife.
Pro 6:15 On account of this, calamity shall come suddenly; he is broken quickly and there is no healing.
Pro 6:16 These six things Jehovah hates; yea, seven are hateful to his soul;
Pro 6:17 a proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood,
Pro 6:18 a heart that plots evil plans, feet hurrying to run to mischief,
Pro 6:19 a false witness who breathes lies, and he who causes strife among brothers.
Pro 6:20 My son, keep your father’s commands, and do not forsake the law of your mother.
Pro 6:21 Bind them to your heart forever; tie them around your neck.
Pro 6:22 When you go, it shall lead you; when you sleep, it shall watch over you; and when you awaken, it will meditate with you.
Pro 6:23 For the commandment is a lamp, and the law a light; and reproofs of instruction are a way of life,
Pro 6:24 to keep you from the evil woman, from the flattery of the tongue of the strange woman.
Pro 6:25 Do not lust after her beauty in your heart, and do not let her take you with her eyelids.
Pro 6:26 For on account of a woman, a harlot, a man comes to the last loaf of bread, and another man’s wife hunts for the precious soul.
Pro 6:27 Can a man take fire into his bosom and his clothes not be burned?
Pro 6:28 Or can a man walk on hot coals and his feet not be burned?
Pro 6:29 So is he who goes in to his neighbor’s wife; everyone touching her shall not be innocent.
Pro 6:30 They do not despise a thief, if he steals to fill his appetite when he is hungry.
Pro 6:31 But if he is found, he shall restore sevenfold; he shall give all the goods of his house.
Pro 6:32 He who commits adultery with a woman lacks heart; he who does it is a destroyer of his own soul.
Pro 6:33 He shall find a wound and dishonor, and his shame shall not be wiped away.
Pro 6:34 For jealousy is the rage of a man, and he will not spare in the day of vengeance.
Pro 6:35 He will not lift up the face of every ransom, nor will he consent if you multiply the bribes.

Proverb 5

Pro 5:1 My son, pay attention to my wisdom; stretch your ear to my understanding;
Pro 5:2 so that you may keep judgment, and your lips may keep knowledge.
Pro 5:3 For the lips of a strange woman drip honey, and her palate is sweeter than oil,
Pro 5:4 but afterwards, she is bitter as wormwood, sharp as a sword of mouths;
Pro 5:5 her feet go down to death; her steps take hold on hell,
Pro 5:6 lest you should meditate on the path of life, her tracks are movable, you cannot know them.
Pro 5:7 Then hear me now, O sons, and do not depart from the words of my mouth.
Pro 5:8 Remove your ways far from her, and do not come near to the door of her house,
Pro 5:9 lest you give your honor to others, and your years to the cruel;
Pro 5:10 that strangers not be filled with your strength, and your labors be in the house of an alien,
Pro 5:11 and you moan when your end comes, when your flesh and muscle are eaten away;
Pro 5:12 and say, How I have hated instruction, and my heart despised correction;
Pro 5:13 and I have not heard the voice of my teachers, nor stretched my ear to those instructing me.
Pro 5:14 I was almost in all evil in the midst of the congregation and assembly.
Pro 5:15 Drink waters out of your own cistern, and running waters out of your own well.
Pro 5:16 Should your overflowing springs be scattered outside, like rivers of waters in the streets?
Pro 5:17 Let them be only your own, and not to strangers with you;
Pro 5:18 let your fountains be blessed, and rejoice with the wife of your youth;
Pro 5:19 she is a loving deer, a graceful doe; let her breasts satisfy you every time, and always be ravished in her love.
Pro 5:20 And my son, why will you be ravished with a strange woman, and embrace a foreigner’s bosom?
Pro 5:21 For the ways of man are before the eyes of Jehovah, and He ponders all his tracks.
Pro 5:22 His own iniquities shall take the wicked himself, and he shall be held with the cords of his sin.
Pro 5:23 He shall die without instruction, and in the greatness of his foolishness he shall go astray.

Jonah 4

Jon 4:1 But it was a great calamity in Jonah’s sight, and it kindled anger in him.
Jon 4:2 And he prayed to Jehovah, and said, Please, O Jehovah, was this not my word while I was on my own land? On account of this, I fled to Tarshish before, for I knew that You are a gracious God and merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness, and One who repents over calamity.
Jon 4:3 And now, O Jehovah, please take my life from me. For better is my death than my life.
Jon 4:4 And Jehovah said, Is anger rightly kindled in you?

Jon 4:8 And it happened when the sun shone, God had appointed a scorching east wind; and the sun struck Jonah’s head, so that he fainted; and he asked for his life to die. And he said, Better is my death than my life.
Jon 4:9 And God said to Jonah, Is your anger rightly kindled over the plant? And he said, My anger is rightly kindled, even to death.
Jon 4:10 And Jehovah said, You have had pity on the plant for which you had not labored, nor made it grow, which was the son of a night and perished the son of a night,
Jon 4:11 and should I not have pity on Nineveh, the great city in which are more than a hundred and twenty thousand of mankind who do not know between the right and the left hand, and many cattle?

Jon 3:2 Rise up, go to Nineveh, the great city, and cry out to it the proclamation that I am declaring to you.

Jon 3:8 But let man and beast be covered with sackcloth. And let them call with strength to God. And let them each one turn from his evil way, and from the violence that is in their hands.
Jon 3:9 Who knows? He may turn, and God may have pity and turn away from the glow of His anger, that we do not perish.
Jon 3:10 And God saw their works, that they turned from their evil way. And God was compassionate over the evil that He had spoken to do to them, and He did not do it.

Jonah 2

Jon 2:1 And Jonah prayed to Jehovah his God out of the belly of the fish.
Jon 2:2 And he said, I cried out to Jehovah from my distress. And He answered me. Out of the belly of Sheol I cried for help, and You heard my voice.
Jon 2:3 For You cast me into the deep, into the heart of the seas, and the current surrounded me; all Your breakers and Your waves passed over me.
Jon 2:4 And I said, I am cast off from Your eyes; yet I will again look to Your holy temple.
Jon 2:5 Waters encompassed me, even to my soul; the depth closed around me; seaweed was clinging to my head.
Jon 2:6 I went down to the bases of the mountains; the earth with her bars was about me forever. But You brought up my life from the pit, O Jehovah my God.
Jon 2:7 When my soul fainted within me, I remembered Jehovah; and my prayer came to You, to Your holy temple.
Jon 2:8 Those who observe vanities of idolatry forsake their faithfulness;
Jon 2:9 but I will sacrifice to You with the voice of thanksgiving; I will fulfill that which I have vowed. Salvation belongs to Jehovah!
Jon 2:10 And Jehovah spoke to the fish, and it vomited Jonah out onto the dry land.
