章:1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 29 30 31

6:1 我儿,你若为朋友作保,替外人击掌,

My son, if thou be surety for thy friend, if thou hast stricken thy hand with a stranger,

6:2 你就被口中的话语缠住,被嘴里的言语捉住。

Thou art snared with the words of thy mouth, thou art taken with the words of thy mouth.

6:3 我儿,你既落在朋友手中,就当这样行,才可救自己。你要自卑,去恳求你的朋友。

Do this now, my son, and deliver thyself, when thou art come into the hand of thy friend; go, humble thyself, and make sure thy friend.

6:4 不要容你的眼睛睡觉,不要容你的眼皮打盹。

Give not sleep to thine eyes, nor slumber to thine eyelids.

6:5 要救自己,如鹿脱离猎户的手,如鸟脱离捕鸟人的手。

Deliver thyself as a roe from the hand of the hunter, and as a bird from the hand of the fowler.

6:6 懒惰人哪,你去察看蚂蚁的动作,就可得智慧。

Go to the ant, thou sluggard; consider her ways, and be wise:

6:7 蚂蚁没有元帅,没有官长,没有君王,

Which having no guide, overseer, or ruler,

6:8 尚且在夏天豫备食物,在收割时聚敛粮食。

Provideth her meat in the summer, and gathereth her food in the harvest.

6:9 懒惰人哪,你要睡到几时呢。你何时睡醒呢。

How long wilt thou sleep, O sluggard? when wilt thou arise out of thy sleep?

6:10 再睡片时,打盹片时,抱着手躺卧片时,

Yet a little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to sleep:

6:11 你的贪穷就必如强盗速来,你的缺乏仿佛拿兵器的人来到。

So shall thy poverty come as one that travelleth, and thy want as an armed man.

6:12 无赖的恶徒,行动就用乖僻的口。

A naughty person, a wicked man, walketh with a froward mouth.

6:13 用眼传神,用脚示意,用指点划。

He winketh with his eyes, he speaketh with his feet, he teacheth with his fingers;

6:14 心中乖僻,常设恶谋,布散分争。

Frowardness is in his heart, he deviseth mischief continually; he soweth discord.

6:15 所以灾难必忽然临到他身。他必顷刻败坏无法可治。

Therefore shall his calamity come suddenly; suddenly shall he be broken without remedy.

6:16 耶和华所恨恶的有六样,连他心所憎恶的共有七样。

These six things doth the LORD hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him:

6:17 就是高傲的眼,撒谎的舌,流无辜人血的手,

A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood,

6:18 图谋恶计的心,飞跑行恶的脚,

An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief,

6:19 吐谎言的假见证,并弟兄中布散分争的人。

A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren.

6:20 我儿,要谨守你父亲的诫命,不可离弃你母亲的法则。(或作指教)

My son, keep thy father’s commandment, and forsake not the law of thy mother:

6:21 要常系在你心上,挂在你项上。

Bind them continually upon thine heart, and tie them about thy neck.

6:22 你行走,他必引导你。你躺卧,他必保守你。你睡醒,他必与你谈论。

When thou goest, it shall lead thee; when thou sleepest, it shall keep thee; and when thou awakest, it shall talk with thee.

6:23 因为诫命是灯,法则(或作指教)是光。训诲的责备是生命的道。

For the commandment is a lamp; and the law is light; and reproofs of instruction are the way of life:

6:24 能保你远离恶妇,远离外女谄媚的舌头。

To keep thee from the evil woman, from the flattery of the tongue of a strange woman.

6:25 你心中不要恋慕他的美色,也不要被他的眼皮勾引。

Lust not after her beauty in thine heart; neither let her take thee with her eyelids.

6:26 因为妓女能使人只剩一块饼,淫妇猎取人宝贵的生命。

For by means of a whorish woman a man is brought to a piece of bread: and the adulteress will hunt for the precious life.

6:27 人若怀里搋火,衣服岂能不烧呢。

Can a man take fire in his bosom, and his clothes not be burned?

6:28 人若在火炭上走,脚岂能不烫呢。

Can one go upon hot coals, and his feet not be burned?

6:29 亲近邻舍之妻的,也是如此。凡挨近他的,不免受罚。

So he that goeth in to his neighbour’s wife; whosoever toucheth her shall not be innocent.

6:30 贼因饥饿偷窃充饥,人不藐视他。

Men do not despise a thief, if he steal to satisfy his soul when he is hungry;

6:31 若被找着,他必赔还七倍。必将家中所有的,尽都偿还。

But if he be found, he shall restore sevenfold; he shall give all the substance of his house.

6:32 与妇人行淫的,便是无知,行这事的,必丧掉生命。

But whoso committeth adultery with a woman lacketh understanding: he that doeth it destroyeth his own soul.

6:33 他必受伤损,必被凌辱。他的羞耻不得涂抹。

A wound and dishonour shall he get; and his reproach shall not be wiped away.

6:34 因为人的嫉恨,成了烈怒。报仇的时候,决不留情。

For jealousy is the rage of a man: therefore he will not spare in the day of vengeance.

6:35 什吗赎价,他都不顾。你虽送许多礼物,他也不肯干休。

He will not regard any ransom; neither will he rest content, though thou givest many gifts.

箴言6参考

朋友有求不应帮吗?不是讲要爱人如己吗?
6:1-5 这几节并不是反对人慷慨,而是叫人慎防因滥用财富以致贫穷这种不负责任的表现。我们既要慷慨,又要作神忠心的管家。神要我们帮助贫穷缺乏的亲友,但他并没有承诺负责我们一切不智的花费。我们应当慎重行事,好使我们的家庭不至受累。

你有没有因为懒惰而不想作工的时候?对主的工作呢?
6:6-11 “太舒服了,再睡一会吧。”──这想法使我们懒洋洋地不肯开始一天的工作。但是箴言警告我们,不要因懒惰贪睡而不去工作。这并不是说我们不可以休息,事实上,神赐犹太人安息日,让他们一个礼拜有一天休息,以便恢复体力,只不过我们不可在该工作的时候去休息。这段经文以蚂蚁作榜样,因为它肯用体力去积存食粮。如果我们懒惰不工作,很快就会变得贫穷,反而失去应享的休息(参28章的附表)。

我已经是成年人了,不需要再听父母的意见了……
6:20-23 孩童逐渐长大成人,便不需再倚靠父母而变得独立,这是一种自然的正常现象。但是年轻人应当小心,不可不听父母的劝告──尤其是在你最需要他们劝告的时候。如果你有难以取舍的抉择,或需寻求高明见解的话,就该与父母或是熟识你的长者倾谈。他们多年的经验,也许可以帮助你少走冤枉路。

英雄难过美人关,我的抵抗力也难说……
6:25 你要时常警惕自己勿受情欲的控制。在你被一位异性吸引而失去理智的时候,你的情欲往往会使你犯罪。你应当求神帮助,在你陷入罪以前抑制你的欲望。

“我只是想弥补些婚姻中的缺欠,不会影响家庭的”,现实吗?
6:25-35 有人辩称,如若不伤害别人,即使不守神的律法与人犯奸淫罪也无伤大雅。但事实上,总会有人受到伤害,例如与配偶的关系遭破坏、儿女的心灵受创伤。犯罪者双方即使有幸未染上疾病,也没有发生婚外孕,却不能像正式夫妻般享受正常的性生活、互相信任、坦诚相对。神的律法不是专横的,它并不禁止人享受良善而纯洁的乐趣,它只是警告我们,不要以愚昧的行动毁灭自己和家庭。
