Parental Warnings (Proverbs 6 – Part 5)

by GL Jones

A comparison of the King James and the New Life Translation Versions of Proverbs 6 of the Bible.

Solomon is reported to have a lot of women in his lifetime: (700wives + 300 concubines), so he had a lot of sons. Here is his wise instruction to them. Having much experience as a parent, he now gives the children more instructions:


Proverbs 6: 29-35 KJV (A Parental Warnings)

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


Proverbs 6: 29-35 NLT (Lessons for Daily Life)

29- So it is with the man who sleeps with another man’s wife.He who embraces her will not go unpunished.

30- Excuses might be found for a thief who steals because he is starving.

31- But if he is caught, he must pay back seven times what he stole,even if he has to sell everything in his house.

32- But the man who commits adultery is an utter fool,for he destroys himself.

33- He will be wounded and disgraced.His shame will never be erased.

34- For the woman’s jealous husband will be furious,and he will show no mercy when he takes revenge.

35- He will accept no compensation,nor be satisfied with a payoff of any size.
