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.

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.

Her house is the way to Sheol, going down to the chambers of death.
