Proverbs 7:6-27

For from a window in my house I peered through the lattice work, and I noticed among the naive that is, I discerned among the youths a senseless young man. Proceeding down the street near her corner, he makes his way toward her houseread more.
at twilight, during the evening, even during the darkest part of the night. Look! A woman makes her way to meet him, dressed as a prostitute and intending to entrap him. She is brazen and defiant her feet don't remain at home. Now she is in the street, now in the plazas, she lurks near every corner. So she grabs hold of him and kisses him, with a brazen face she speaks to him, "I have given my peace offerings, and today I fulfilled my vows. Therefore, I've come out to meet you, I've looked just for you, and I found you! I've decorated my bed with new coverings embroidered linen from Egypt. I've perfumed my bed with myrrh, aloes, and cinnamon. Come, let's make love until dawn; let's comfort ourselves with love, because my husband isn't home. He left on a long trip. He took a fist full of cash and he'll return home in a month." She leads him astray with great persuasion; with flattering lips she seduces him. All of a sudden he follows her like an ox fit for slaughter or like a fool fit for a trap until an arrow pierces his liver. As a bird darts into a snare, he doesn't realize his fatal decision. So listen to me, my sons, and pay attention to what I have to say. Don't be led astray by her lifestyle, and don't imitate her behavior. For many are the victims whom she has conquered, and many are her slain. Her house leads to Sheol, descending to death's catacombs.
