Takes a deep breath, then begins to read.
1 My child, if you have put up security for a friend's debt or agreed to guarantee the debt of a stranger-
2 if you have trapped yourself by your agreement and are caught by what you said-
3 follow my advice and save yourself, for you have placed yourself at your friend's mercy. Now swallow your pride; go and beg to have your name erased.
4 Don't put it off; do it now! Don't rest until you do.
5 Save yourself like a gazelle escaping from a hunter; like a bird fleeing from a net.
6 Take a lesson from the ants, you lazybones. Learn from their ways and become wise!
7 Though they have no prince or governor or ruler to make them work,
8 they labor hard all summer, gathering food for the winter.
9 But you, lazybones, how long will you sleep? When will you wake up?
10 A little extra sleep, a little more slumber, a little folding of the hands to rest-
11 then poverty will pounce upon you like a bandit; scarcity will attack you like an armed robber.
12 What are worthless and wicked people like? They are constant liars,
13 signaling their deceit with a wink of the eye, a nudge of the foot, or the wiggle of fingers.
14 Their perverted hearts plot evil, and they will constantly stir up trouble.
15 But they will be destroyed suddenly, broken in an instant beyond all hope of repairing.
16 There are six things the lord hates- no, seven things he detests:
17 haughty eyes, a lying tongue, hands that kill the innocent,
18 a heart that plots evil, feet that race to do wrong,
19 a false witness who pours out lies, a person who sows discord in a family.
20 My son, obey your father’s commands, and don’t neglect your mother’s instruction.
21 Keep their words always in your heart. Tie them around your neck.
22 When you walk, their counsel will lead you. When you sleep, they will protect you. When you wake up, they will advise you.
23 For their command is a lamp and their instruction a light; their corrective discipline is the way to life.
No, that’s not the entire chapter of Proverbs 6. Some was off-topic.
