Proverbs 23:20-22 Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV)

20 Be not among winebibbers;
among riotous eaters of flesh:
21 for the drunkard and the glutton shall come to poverty:
and drowsiness shall clothe a man with rags.

22 Hearken unto thy father that begat thee,
and despise not thy mother when she is old.

Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV)
