6 My son, if you have put up esecurity for your neighbor,
have egiven your pledge for a stranger,

and ghands that shed innocent blood,

ifeet that make haste to run to evil,
and one who asows discord among brothers.

ntie them around your neck.
23 For the commandment is qa lamp and the teaching a light,
and the rreproofs of discipline are the way of life,
24 to preserve you from the evil woman,5
25 tDo not desire her beauty in your heart,
and do not let her capture you with her ueyelashes;
28 Or can one awalk on hot coals
none who touches her bwill go unpunished.

and he will not spare when ghe takes revenge.
