Another Warning about Immoral Women

7Follow my advice, my son; always treasure my commands.H1121H8104H561H6845H4687 2Obey my commands and live! Guard my instructions as you guard your own eyes.H8104H4687H2421H8451H380H5869 3Tie them on your fingers as a reminder. Write them deep within your heart.H7194H676H3789H3871H3820 4Love wisdom like a sister; make insight a beloved member of your family.H559H2451H269H7121H998H4129 5Let them protect you from an affair with an immoral woman, from listening to the flattery of a promiscuous woman.H8104H2114H802H5237H2505H561 6While I was at the window of my house, looking through the curtain,H2474H1004H8259H822 7I saw some naive young men, and one in particular who lacked common sense.H7200H6612H995H1121H5288H2638H3820 8He was crossing the street near the house of an immoral woman, strolling down the path by her house.H5674H7784H681H6434H6805H1870H1004 9It was at twilight, in the evening, as deep darkness fell.H5399H3117H6153H380H653H3915 10The woman approached him, seductively dressed and sly of heart.H7125H802H7897H2181H5341H3820 11She was the brash, rebellious type, never content to stay at home.H1993H5637H7272H7931H1004 12She is often in the streets and markets, soliciting at every corner.H6471H2351H6471H7339H693H681H6438 13She threw her arms around him and kissed him, and with a brazen look she said,H2388H5401H5810H6440H559 14“I’ve just made my peace offerings and fulfilled my vows.H8002H2077H3117H7999H5088 15You’re the one I was looking for! I came out to find you, and here you are!H3318H7125H7836H6440H4672 16My bed is spread with beautiful blankets, with colored sheets of Egyptian linen.H7234H6210H4765H2405H330H4714 17I’ve perfumed my bed with myrrh, aloes, and cinnamon.H5130H4904H4753H174H7076 18Come, let’s drink our fill of love until morning. Let’s enjoy each other’s caresses,H3212H7301H1730H1242H5965H159 19for my husband is not home. He’s away on a long trip.H376H1004H1980H7350H1870 20He has taken a wallet full of money with him and won’t return until later this month.”H3947H6872H3701H3027H935H1004H3117H3677 21So she seduced him with her pretty speech and enticed him with her flattery.H7230H3948H5186H2506H8193H5080 22He followed her at once, like an ox going to the slaughter. He was like a stag caught in a trap,H1980H310H6597H7794H935H2874H191H4148H5914 23awaiting the arrow that would pierce its heart. He was like a bird flying into a snare, little knowing it would cost him his life.H2671H6398H3516H6833H4116H6341H3045H5315 24So listen to me, my sons, and pay attention to my words.H8085H1121H7181H561H6310 25Don’t let your hearts stray away toward her. Don’t wander down her wayward path.H3820H7847H1870H8582H5410 26For she has been the ruin of many; many men have been her victims.H5307H7227H2491H6099H2026 27Her house is the road to the grave. Her bedroom is the den of death.H1004H1870H7585H3381H2315H4194
