Proverbs 6:30-35

View Full Chapter

30People do not despise a thief if he steals to satisfy his hunger when he is starving.

31Yet if he is caught, he must pay sevenfold, though it costs him all the wealth of his house.

32But a man who commits adultery has no sense; whoever does so destroys himself.

33Blows and disgrace are his lot, and his shame will never be wiped away.

34For jealousy arouses a husband’s fury, and he will show no mercy when he takes revenge. 35He will not accept any compensation; he will refuse a bribe, however great it is.
