Proverbs 7

7:1 My sonne, keepe my words, and lay vp my commaundements with thee. 7:2 Keepe my commandements, and liue: and my law as the apple of thine eye. 7:3 Bind them vpon thy fingers, write them vpon the table of thine heart. 7:4 Say vnto Wisedome, Thou art my sister, and call Understanding thy kinse woman, 7:5 That they may keepe thee from the strange woman, from the stranger which flattereth with her words. 7:6 For at the windowe of my house I looked through my casement, 7:7 And behelde among the simple ones, I discerned among the youths, a yong man void of vnderstanding, 7:8 Passing through the streete neere her corner, and he went the way to her house, 7:9 In the twilight in the euening, in the blacke and darke night: 7:10 And behold, there met him a woman, with the attire of an harlot, and subtill of heart. 7:11 (She is loud and stubburne, her feet abide not in her house: 7:12 Now is shee without, now in the streetes, and lieth in waite at euery corner.) 7:13 So she caught him, and kissed him, and with an impudent face, said vnto him, 7:14 I haue peace offerings with me: this day haue I paid my vowes. 7:15 Therefore came I forth to meete thee, diligently to seeke thy face, and I haue found thee. 7:16 I haue deckt my bed with couerings of tapestrie, with carued workes, with fine linnen of Egypt. 7:17 I haue perfumed my bed with myrrhe, aloes, and cynamom. 7:18 Come, let vs take our fill of loue vntill the morning, let vs solace our selues with loues. 7:19 For the good-man is not at home, he is gone a long iourney. 7:20 He hath taken a bag of money with him, and will come home at the day appointed. 7:21 With much faire speech she caused him to yeeld, with the flattering of her lips she forced him. 7:22 He goeth after her straightway, as an oxe goeth to the slaughter, or as a foole to the correction of the stocks, 7:23 Til a dart strike through his liuer, as a bird hasteth to the snare, and knoweth not that it is for his life. 7:24 Hearken vnto me now therefore, O ye children, and attend to the words of my mouth. 7:25 Let not thine heart decline to her wayes, goe not astray in her paths. 7:26 For shee hath cast downe many wounded: yea many strong men haue bene slaine by her. 7:27 Her house is the way to hell, going downe to the chambers of death.
