Proverbs 7

My son
<01121>_,
keep
<08104> (8798)
my words
<0561>_,
and lay up
<06845> (8799)
my commandments
<04687>
with thee.
Keep
<08104> (8798)
my commandments
<04687>_,
and live
<02421> (8798)_;
and my law
<08451>
as the apple
<0380>
of thine eye
<05869>_.
Bind
<07194> (8798)
them upon thy fingers
<0676>_,
write
<03789> (8798)
them upon the table
<03871>
of thine heart
<03820>_.
Say
<0559> (8798)
unto wisdom
<02451>_,
Thou [art] my sister
<0269>_;
and call
<07121> (8799)
understanding
<0998>
[thy] kinswoman
<04129>_:
That they may keep
<08104> (8800)
thee from the strange
<02114> (8801)
woman
<0802>_,
from the stranger
<05237>
[which] flattereth
<02505> (8689)
with her words
<0561>_.
For at the window
<02474>
of my house
<01004>
I looked
<08259> (8738)
through my casement
<0822>_,
And beheld
<07200> (8799)
among the simple ones
<06612>_,
I discerned
<0995> (8799)
among the youths
<01121>_,
a young man
<05288>
void
<02638>
of understanding
<03820>_,
{the youths: Heb. the sons}
Passing through
<05674> (8802)
the street
<07784>
near
<0681>
her corner
<06434>_;
and he went
<06805> (8799)
the way
<01870>
to her house
<01004>_,
In the twilight
<05399>_,
in the evening
<03117> <06153>_,
in the black
<0380>
and dark
<0653>
night
<03915>_:
{in the evening: Heb. in the evening of days}
And, behold, there met
<07125> (8800)
him a woman
<0802>
[with] the attire
<07897>
of an harlot
<02181> (8802)_,
and subtil
<05341> (8803)
of heart
<03820>_.
(She [is] loud
<01993> (8802)
and stubborn
<05637> (8802)_;
her feet
<07272>
abide
<07931> (8799)
not in her house
<01004>_:
Now
<06471>
[is she] without
<02351>_,
now
<06471>
in the streets
<07339>_,
and lieth in wait
<0693> (8799)
at
<0681>
every corner
<06438>.)
So she caught
<02388> (8689)
him, and kissed
<05401> (8804)
him, [and] with an impudent
<05810> (8689)
face
<06440>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto him, {with...: Heb. she strengthened her face and said}
[I have] peace
<08002>
offerings
<02077>
with me; this day
<03117>
have I payed
<07999> (8765)
my vows
<05088>_.
{I have...: Heb. Peace offerings are upon me}
Therefore came I forth
<03318> (8804)
to meet
<07125> (8800)
thee, diligently to seek
<07836> (8763)
thy face
<06440>_,
and I have found
<04672> (8799)
thee.
I have decked
<07234> (8804)
my bed
<06210>
with coverings
<04765>
of tapestry, with carved
<02405>
[works], with fine linen
<0330>
of Egypt
<04714>_.
I have perfumed
<05130> (8804)
my bed
<04904>
with myrrh
<04753>_,
aloes
<0174>_,
and cinnamon
<07076>_.
Come
<03212> (8798)_,
let us take our fill
<07301> (8799)
of love
<01730>
until the morning
<01242>_:
let us solace
<05965> (8691)
ourselves with loves
<0159>_.
For the goodman
<0376>
[is] not at home
<01004>_,
he is gone
<01980> (8804)
a long
<07350>
journey
<01870>_:
He hath taken
<03947> (8804)
a bag
<06872>
of money
<03701>
with him
<03027>_,
[and] will come
<0935> (8799)
home
<01004>
at the day
<03117>
appointed
<03677>_.
{with...: Heb. in his hand} {the day...: or, the new moon}
With her much
<07230>
fair speech
<03948>
she caused him to yield
<05186> (8689)_,
with the flattering
<02506>
of her lips
<08193>
she forced
<05080> (8686)
him.
He goeth
<01980> (8802)
after
<0310>
her straightway
<06597>_,
as an ox
<07794>
goeth
<0935> (8799)
to the slaughter
<02874>_,
or as a fool
<0191>
to the correction
<04148>
of the stocks
<05914>_;
{straightway: Heb. suddenly}
Till a dart
<02671>
strike
<06398> (8762)
through his liver
<03516>_;
as a bird
<06833>
hasteth
<04116> (8763)
to the snare
<06341>_,
and knoweth
<03045> (8804)
not that it [is] for his life
<05315>_.
Hearken
<08085> (8798)
unto me now therefore, O ye children
<01121>_,
and attend
<07181> (8685)
to the words
<0561>
of my mouth
<06310>_.
Let not thine heart
<03820>
decline
<07847> (8799)
to her ways
<01870>_,
go not astray
<08582> (8799)
in her paths
<05410>_.
For she hath cast down
<05307> (8689)
many
<07227>
wounded
<02491>_:
yea, many strong
<06099>
[men] have been slain
<02026> (8803)
by her.
Her house
<01004>
[is] the way
<01870>
to hell
<07585>_,
going down
<03381> (8802)
to the chambers
<02315>
of death
<04194>_.
