Proverbs 6:20-35

Keep your father's commands, my son, and never forsake your mother's rules, by binding them to your heart continuously, fastening them around your neck. During your travels wisdom will lead you; she will watch over you while you rest; and when you are startled from your sleep, she will commune with you.read more.
Because the command is a lamp and the Law a light, rebukes that discipline are a way of life to protect you from the evil woman, from the words of the seductive woman. Do not focus on her beauty in your mind, nor allow her to take you prisoner with her flirting eyes, because the price of a whore is a loaf of bread, and an adulterous woman stalks a man's precious life. Can a man scoop fire into his bosom without burning his clothes? Can a man walk on hot coals without scorching his feet? So also is it with someone who has sex with his neighbor's wife; anyone touching her will not remain unpunished. A thief isn't despised if he steals to meet his needs when he is hungry, but when he is discovered, he must restore seven-fold, forfeiting the entire value of his house. Whoever commits adultery with a woman is out of his mind; by doing so he corrupts his own soul. He will receive a beating and dishonor, and his shame won't disappear, because jealousy incites a strong man's rage, and he will show no mercy when it's time for revenge. He will not consider any payment, nor will he be willing to accept it, no matter how large the bribe.
