020:007:001
My son,
keep my words,
and lay up my commandments with thee.


020:007:002
Keep my commandments,
and live;
and my law as the apple of thine eye.


020:007:003
Bind them upon thy fingers,
write them upon the table of thine heart.


020:007:004
Say unto wisdom,
Thou art my sister;
and call understanding thy kinswoman:


020:007:005
That they may keep thee from the strange woman,
from the stranger which flattereth with her words.


020:007:006
For at the window of my house I looked through my casement,


020:007:007
And beheld among the simple ones,
I discerned among the youths,
a young man void of understanding,


020:007:008
Passing through the street near her corner;
and he went the way to her house,


020:007:009
In the twilight,
in the evening,
in the black and dark night:


020:007:010
And,
behold,
there met him a woman with the attire of an harlot,
and subtil of heart.


020:007:011
(She is loud and stubborn;
her feet abide not in her house:


020:007:012
Now is she without,
now in the streets,
and lieth in wait at every corner.)


020:007:013
So she caught him,
and kissed him,
and with an impudent face said unto him,


020:007:014
I have peace offerings with me;
this day have I payed my vows.


020:007:015
Therefore came I forth to meet thee,
diligently to seek thy face,
and I have found thee.


020:007:016
I have decked my bed with coverings of tapestry,
with carved works,
with fine linen of Egypt.


020:007:017
I have perfumed my bed with myrrh,
aloes,
and cinnamon.


020:007:018
Come,
let us take our fill of love until the morning:
let us solace ourselves with loves.


020:007:019
For the goodman is not at home,
he is gone a long journey:


020:007:020
He hath taken a bag of money with him,
and will come home at the day appointed.


020:007:021
With her much fair speech she caused him to yield,
with the flattering of her lips she forced him.


020:007:022
He goeth after her straightway,
as an ox goeth to the slaughter,
or as a fool to the correction of the stocks;


020:007:023
Till a dart strike through his liver;
as a bird hasteth to the snare,
and knoweth not that it is for his life.


020:007:024
Hearken unto me now therefore,
O ye children,
and attend to the words of my mouth.


020:007:025
Let not thine heart decline to her ways,
go not astray in her paths.


020:007:026
For she hath cast down many wounded:
yea,
many strong men have been slain by her.


020:007:027
Her house is the way to hell,
going down to the chambers of death.
