Proverbs 7:6-27

at twilight, at [the] day's evening, in [the] midst of night and the darkness. Then behold! A woman [comes] to meet him [with the] garment of a prostitute and {a secret heart}.

And now, my children, listen to me, and be attentive to the sayings of my mouth. May your heart not turn aside to her ways; do not stray into her path. For many slain she has laid low, and countless [are] all of her killings. The ways of Sheol [are] her house, descending to chambers of death.
