We shall find all kinds of riches, we shall fill our houses with spoil. Cast in thy lot among us; let us all have one purse: My son, do not walk in the way with them; refrain thy foot from their path: For their feet shall run to evil and make haste to shed blood. Surely in vain the net is spread in the sight of any bird. And they lay in wait for their own blood; they ambush their own souls. So are the ways of every one that is greedy of gain which takes away the life of those who possess it.

Proverbs 5:1-23

My son, attend unto my wisdom, and bow thine ear to my intelligence; that thou may keep council and that thy lips may conserve knowledge. For the lips of the strange woman drop as a honeycomb, and her mouth is smoother than oil,read more.
But her end is bitter as wormwood, sharp as a twoedged sword. Her feet go down to death, her steps uphold Sheol, lest thou should ponder the path of life, her ways are unstable; thou shalt not know them. Hear me now therefore, O ye sons, and do not depart from the words of my mouth. Remove thy way far from her, and do not come near the door of her house, lest thou give thine honour unto others and thy years unto the cruel, lest strangers be filled with thy wealth, and thy labours be in the house of a stranger, and thou mourn at the last when thy flesh and thy body are consumed and say, How have I hated chastening and my heart despised reproof and have not obeyed the voice of those who chastened me, nor inclined my ear to those that instructed me! I have been in almost every kind of evil, in the midst of society and of the congregation. Drink waters out of thine own cistern and running waters out of thine own well. Let thy fountains be dispersed abroad, and rivers of thy waters in the streets. Let them be only thine own and not for strangers with thee. Thy fountain shall be blessed; and rejoice with the wife of thy youth. Let her be as the loving hind and pleasant roe; let her breasts satisfy thee at all times; and be thou ravished always with her love, without eyes for anyone else. And why wilt thou, my son, be ravished with a woman belonging to someone else, and embrace the bosom of a stranger? For the ways of man are before the eyes of the LORD, and he weighs all his goings. His own iniquities shall take hold of the wicked, and he shall be imprisoned with the cords of his sins. He shall die because he did not submit to chastening; and due to the greatness of his folly he shall go astray.

Proverbs 6:20-29

My son, keep thy father's commandment and forsake not the law of thy mother: Bind them continually upon thine heart and tie them about thy neck. When thou goest, it shall lead thee; when thou sleepest, it shall keep thee; and when thou awakest, it shall talk with thee.read more.
For the commandment is fire, and the law is light; and reproofs of chastening are the way of life, to keep thee from the evil woman, from the flattery of the tongue of a strange woman. Lust not after her beauty in thine heart, neither let her take thee with her eyes. For by means of a whorish woman a man is reduced to a piece of bread, and the woman will hunt the precious soul of the man. Can a man take fire in his bosom and his clothes not be burned? Can one go upon hot coals, and his feet not be burned? So is he that goes in to his neighbour's wife; whosoever touches her shall not be innocent.

Proverbs 7:6-27

For at the window of my house I looked through my casement and beheld among the simple ones, I discerned among the youths, a young man void of understanding, passing through the street near her corner; and he went the way to her house,read more.
in the twilight, in the evening, in the black and dark night; and, behold, a woman met him with the attire of a harlot, and subtil of heart. (She is loud and stubborn; her feet do not abide in her house: Now without, now in the streets, she lies in wait at every corner.) So she caught him and kissed him and with an impudent face said unto him, I had promised sacrifices of peace; today I have payed my vows. Therefore I came forth to meet thee, diligently to seek thy face, and I have found thee. I have decked my bed with coverings of tapestry, with carved works, with fine linen of Egypt. I have perfumed my bed with myrrh, aloes, and cinnamon. Come, let us take our fill of love until the morning; let us solace ourselves with loves. For the husband is not at home; he is gone a long journey: He has taken a bag of money with him and will come home at the appointed feast day. With her much fair speech she caused him to yield; with the flattering of her lips she persuaded him. He went after her straightway, as an ox goes to the slaughter or as a fool to the correction of the stocks, until the arrow pierces through his liver. He is as a bird struggling in the snare and not knowing that it is against his own life. Hearken unto me now therefore, O ye sons, and attend to the words of my mouth. Let not thine heart decline to her ways; do not go astray in her paths. For she has caused many to fall down dead; yea, all the strong men have been slain by her. Her house is the way to Sheol, going down to the chambers of death.
