–6– 23 1When you are invited to eat with a king, use your best manners. 2Don't go and stuff yourself! That would be just the same as cutting your throat. 3Don't be greedy for all of that fancy food! It may not be so tasty. –7– 4Give up trying so hard to get rich. 5Your money flies away before you know it, just like an eagle suddenly taking off. –8– 6Don't accept an invitation to eat a selfish person's food, no matter how good it is. 7People like that take note of how much you eat.[Q] They say, “Take all you want!” But they don't mean it. 8Each bite will come back up, and all your kind words will be wasted. –9– 9Don't talk to fools— they will make fun of you. –10– 10Don't move a boundary marker[R] or take the land that belongs to orphans. 11God All-Powerful is there to defend them against you. –11– 12Listen to instruction and do your best to learn. –12– 13Don't fail to correct your children. You won't kill them by being firm, 14and it may even save their lives. –13– 15My children, if you show good sense, I will be happy, 16and if you are truthful, I will really be glad. –14– 17Don't be jealous of sinners, but always honor the LORD. 18Then you will truly have hope for the future. –15– 19Listen to me, my children! Be wise and have enough sense to follow the right path. 20Don't be a heavy drinker or stuff yourself with food. 21It will make you feel drowsy, and you will end up poor with only rags to wear. –16– 22Pay attention to your father, and don't neglect your mother when she grows old. 23Invest in truth and wisdom, discipline and good sense, and don't part with them. 24Make your father truly happy by living right and showing sound judgment. 25Make your parents proud, especially your mother. –17– 26My son, pay close attention, and gladly follow my example. 27Bad women and unfaithful wives are like a deep pit— 28they are waiting to attack you like a gang of robbers with victim after victim. –18– 29Who is always in trouble? Who argues and fights? Who has cuts and bruises? Whose eyes are red? 30Everyone who stays up late, having just one more drink. 31Don't even look at that colorful stuff bubbling up in the glass! It goes down so easily, 32but later it bites like a poisonous snake. 33You will see weird things, and your mind will play tricks on you. 34You will feel tossed about like someone trying to sleep on a ship in a storm. 35You will be bruised all over, without even remembering how it all happened. And you will lie awake asking, “When will morning come, so I can drink some more?”
