A. The harlot will meet you dressed to seduce

"And behold, there met him a woman, dressed as a harlot"

1 Timothy 2:9 (Amplified Bible)

Also [I desire] that women should adorn themselves modestly and appropriately and sensibly in seemly apparel, not with [elaborate] hair arrangement or gold or pearls or expensive clothing,

Revelation 17:3-5 (Amplified Bible)

And [the angel] bore me away [rapt] in the Spirit into a desert (wilderness), and I saw a woman seated on a scarlet beast that was all covered with blasphemous titles (names), and he had seven heads and ten horns.

The woman was robed in purple and scarlet and bedecked with gold, precious stones, and pearls, [and she was] holding in her hand a golden cup full of the accursed offenses and the filth of her lewdness and vice.

And on her forehead there was inscribed a name of mystery [with a secret symbolic meaning]: Babylon the great, the mother of prostitutes (idolatresses) and of the filth and atrocities and abominations of the earth.

Take the example of Tamar who dressed like a harlot to seduce his father-in-law Judah, because she knows Shelah was grown up and she was not given to him as his wife.

Genesis 38:14-15 (Amplified Bible)

So she put off her widow’s garments and covered herself with a veil, wrapped herself up [in disguise], and sat in the entrance of Enaim, which is by the road to Timnath; for she saw that Shelah was grown and she was not given to him as his wife.

When Judah saw her, he thought she was a harlot or devoted prostitute [under a vow to her goddess], for she had covered her face [as such women did].

B. The harlot has a sly and cunning heart

"and sly and cunning of heart"
