Proverbs 7

1 - My son, keep my words, and lay up my commandments with thee.

2 - Keep my commandments, and live; and my law as the apple of thine eye.

3 - Bind them upon thy fingers, write them upon the table of thine heart.

4 - Say unto wisdom, Thou art my sister; and call understanding thy kinswoman:

5 - That they may keep thee from the strange woman, from the stranger which flattereth with her words.

6 - For at the window of my house I looked through my casement,

7 - And beheld among the simple ones, I discerned among the youths, a young man void of understanding,

8 - Passing through the street near her corner; and he went the way to her house,

9 - In the twilight, in the evening, in the black and dark night:

10 - And, behold, there met him a woman with the attire of an harlot, and subtil of heart.

11 - (She is loud and stubborn; her feet abide not in her house:

12 - Now is she without, now in the streets, and lieth in wait at every corner.)

13 - So she caught him, and kissed him, and with an impudent face said unto him,

14 - I have peace offerings with me; this day have I payed my vows.

15 - Therefore came I forth to meet thee, diligently to seek thy face, and I have found thee.

16 - I have decked my bed with coverings of tapestry, with carved works, with fine linen of Egypt.

17 - I have perfumed my bed with myrrh, aloes, and cinnamon.

18 - Come, let us take our fill of love until the morning: let us solace ourselves with loves.

19 - For the goodman is not at home, he is gone a long journey:

20 - He hath taken a bag of money with him, and will come home at the day appointed.

21 - With her much fair speech she caused him to yield, with the flattering of her lips she forced him.

22 - He goeth after her straightway, as an ox goeth to the slaughter, or as a fool to the correction of the stocks;

23 - Till a dart strike through his liver; as a bird hasteth to the snare, and knoweth not that it is for his life.

24 - Hearken unto me now therefore, O ye children, and attend to the words of my mouth.

25 - Let not thine heart decline to her ways, go not astray in her paths.

26 - For she hath cast down many wounded: yea, many strong men have been slain by her.

27 - Her house is the way to hell, going down to the chambers of death.
