Proverbs 23

Pro 23:20  Be not among winebibbers; among riotous eaters of flesh:
Pro 23:21  For the drunkard and the glutton shall come to poverty: and drowsiness shall clothe a man with rags.
Pro 23:22  Hearken unto thy father that begat thee, and despise not thy mother when she is old.
Pro 23:23  Buy the truth, and sell it not; also wisdom, and instruction, and understanding.
Pro 23:24  The father of the righteous shall greatly rejoice: and he that begetteth a wise child shall have joy of him.
Pro 23:25  Thy father and thy mother shall be glad, and she that bare thee shall rejoice.
Pro 23:26  My son, give me thine heart, and let thine eyes observe my ways.
Pro 23:27  For a whore is a deep ditch; and a strange woman is a narrow pit.
Pro 23:28  She also lieth in wait as for a prey, and increaseth the transgressors among men.

We're still on gluttony at the start, and then it extols wisdom.  Wisdom is contrary to gluttony and sexual sin (the last part).
