Wife Turned Prostitute With Crafty Intent
10 Then out came a woman to meet him,
dressed like a prostitute and with crafty intent.
11 (She is unruly and defiant,
her feet never stay at home;
12 now in the street, now in the squares,
at every corner she lurks.)
This woman is another man’s wife,
dressed like a prostitute
and strutting around
with devious motives.
Senseless Young Man Approaches Her House At Dusk
6 At the window of my house
I looked down through the lattice.
7 I saw among the simple,
I noticed among the young men,
a youth who had no sense.
8 He was going down the street near her corner,
walking along in the direction of her house
9 at twilight, as the day was fading,
as the dark of night set in.
Sneaking away to the house of a married woman
at dusk cannot be a wise decision.
Obeying Wisdom and Insite
4 Say to wisdom, “You are my sister,”
and to insight, “You are my relative.”
5 They will keep you from the adulterous woman,
from the wayward woman with her seductive words.
New International Version (NIV)
Obeying wisdom and insite
will guard you from adultery.
Write My Commands On The Tablet Of Your Heart
1 My son, keep my words
and store up my commands within you.
2 Keep my commands and you will live;
guard my teachings as the apple of your eye.
3 Bind them on your fingers;
write them on the tablet of your heart.
Keep My Words
Store Up My Commands
Keep My Commands
Guard My Teachings
Apple Of Your Eye
Tablet Of Your Heart
You Will Live!
Guard your heart and avoid the adulteress.
24 Now then, my sons, listen to me;
pay attention to what I say.
25 Do not let your heart turn to her ways
or stray into her paths.
26 Many are the victims she has brought down;
her slain are a mighty throng.
27 Her house is a highway to the grave,
leading down to the chambers of death.
Listen and pay attention.
Do not become a victim of the adulteress.
