Avoid Immoral Women

5My son, pay attention to my wisdom; listen carefully to my wise counsel.H1121H7181H2451H5186H241H8394 2Then you will show discernment, and your lips will express what you’ve learned.H8104H4209H8193H5341H1847 3For the lips of an immoral woman are as sweet as honey, and her mouth is smoother than oil.H8193H2114H5197H5317H2441H2509H8081 4But in the end she is as bitter as poison, as dangerous as a double-edged sword.H319H4751H3939H2299H6310H2719 5Her feet go down to death; her steps lead straight to the grave.H7272H3381H4194H6806H8551H7585 6For she cares nothing about the path to life. She staggers down a crooked trail and doesn’t realize it.H6424H734H2416H4570H5128H3045 7So now, my sons, listen to me. Never stray from what I am about to say.H8085H1121H5493H561H6310 8Stay away from her! Don’t go near the door of her house!H7368H1870H7368H7126H6607H1004 9If you do, you will lose your honor and will lose to merciless people all you have achieved.H5414H1935H312H8141H394 10Strangers will consume your wealth, and someone else will enjoy the fruit of your labor.H2114H7646H3581H6089H1004H5237 11In the end you will groan in anguish when disease consumes your body.H5098H319H1320H7607H3615 12You will say, “How I hated discipline! If only I had not ignored all the warnings!H559H8130H4148H3820H5006H8433 13Oh, why didn’t I listen to my teachers? Why didn’t I pay attention to my instructors?H8085H6963H3384H5186H241H3925 14I have come to the brink of utter ruin, and now I must face public disgrace.”H4592H7451H8432H6951H5712 15Drink water from your own well—share your love only with your wife.H8354H4325H953H5140H8432H875 16Why spill the water of your springs in the streets, having sex with just anyone?H4599H6327H2351H6388H4325H7339 17You should reserve it for yourselves. Never share it with strangers.H2114 18Let your wife be a fountain of blessing for you. Rejoice in the wife of your youth.H4726H1288H8055H802H5271 19She is a loving deer, a graceful doe. Let her breasts satisfy you always. May you always be captivated by her love.H158H365H2580H3280H1717H7301H6256H7686H8548H160 20Why be captivated, my son, by an immoral woman, or fondle the breasts of a promiscuous woman?H1121H7686H2114H2263H2436H5237 21For the Lord sees clearly what a man does, examining every path he takes.H1870H376H5227H5869H3068H6424H4570 22An evil man is held captive by his own sins; they are ropes that catch and hold him.H5771H3920H7563H8551H2256H2403 23He will die for lack of self-control; he will be lost because of his great foolishness.H4191H4148H7230H200H7686
