That you may exercise proper discrimination and discretion and your lips may guard and keep knowledge and the wise answer .
For the lips of a loose woman drip honey as a honeycomb, and her mouth is smoother than oil;
But in the end she is bitter as wormwood, sharp as a two-edged and devouring sword.
Her feet go down to death; her steps take hold of Sheol (Hades, the place of the dead).
She loses sight of and walks not in the path of life; her ways wind about aimlessly, and you cannot know them.
Now therefore, my sons, listen to me, and depart not from the words of my mouth.
Let your way in life be far from her, and come not near the door of her house ,
Lest you give your honor to others and your years to those without mercy,
Lest strangers take their fill of your strength and wealth and your labors go to the house of an alien --
And you groan and mourn when your end comes, when your flesh and body are consumed,
And you say, How I hated instruction and discipline, and my heart despised reproof!
I have not obeyed the voice of my teachers nor submitted and consented to those who instructed me.
my sin involved almost all evil of the congregation and the community.
All of the Ten Commandments are reflected in the book of Proverbs; here it is the seventh, ``You shall not commit adultery."Drink waters out of your own cistern , and fresh running waters out of your own well.
Should your offspring be dispersed abroad as water brooks in the streets?
let your children be for you alone, and not the children of strangers with you.
Let your fountain be blessed , and rejoice in the wife of your youth.
Let her be as the loving hind and pleasant doe --let her bosom satisfy you at all times, and always be transported with delight in her love.
Why should you, my son, be infatuated with a loose woman, embrace the bosom of an outsider, and go astray?
For the ways of man are directly before the eyes of the Lord, and He carefully weighs all man's goings.
His own iniquities shall ensnare the wicked man, and he shall be held with the cords of his sin.
He will die for lack of discipline and instruction, and in the greatness of his folly he will go astray and be lost.
