Proverbs 23:2-6


A (2) And put a knife to thy throat, if thou be a man given to appetite <05315>.

B (3) Be not desirous of his dainties:

C (3) for they are deceitful meat <03899>.

D (4,5) Labour not to be rich: cease from thine own wisdom.
Wilt thou set <05774>  thine eyes upon that which is not?

E (5) for riches certainly make themselves wings;

D1 (5) they fly away <05774>  as an eagle toward heaven.

C1 (6) Eat thou not the bread <03899> of him that hath an evil eye,

B1 (6) neither desire thou his dainty meats:

A1 (7) For as he thinketh in his heart <05315>, so is he: Eat and drink, saith he to thee; but his heart is not with thee.
