My son,H1121 keepH8104 my words,H561 and layH6845 up my commandmentsH4687 with you.
KeepH8104 my commandments,H4687 and live;H2421 and my lawH8451 as the appleH380 of your eye.H5869
BindH7194 them on your fingers,H676 writeH3789 them on the tableH3871 of your heart.H3820
SayH559 to wisdom,H2451 You are my sister;H269 and callH7121 understandingH998 your kinswoman:H4129
That they may keepH8104 you from the strangeH2114 woman,H802 from the strangerH5237 which flattersH2505 with her words.H561
For at the windowH2474 of my houseH1004 I lookedH8259 through my casement,H822
And beheldH7200 among the simpleH6612 ones, I discernedH995 among the youths,H1121 a youngH5288 man voidH2638 of understanding,H3820
PassingH5674 through the streetH7784 nearH681 her corner;H6438 and he wentH6805 the wayH1870 to her house,H1004
In the twilight,H5399 in the evening,H6153 in the blackH380 and darkH653 night:H3915
And, behold,H2009 there metH7125 him a womanH802 with the attireH7897 of an harlot,H2181 and subtleH5341 of heart.H3820
(She is loudH1993 and stubborn;H5637 her feetH7272 abideH7931 not in her house:H1004
NowH6471 is she without,H2351 nowH6471 in the streets,H7339 and lies in waitH693 atH681 everyH3605 corner.H6438)
So she caughtH2388 him, and kissedH5401 him, and with an impudentH5810 faceH6440 saidH559 to him,
I have peaceH8002 offerings with me; this dayH3117 have I paidH7999 my vows.H5088
ThereforeH5921 H3651 cameH3318 I forthH3318 to meetH7125 you, diligentlyH7836 to seekH7836 your face,H6440 and I have foundH4672 you.
I have deckedH7234 my bedH6210 with coveringsH4765 of tapestry, with carvedH2405 works, with fine linenH948 of Egypt.H4714
I have perfumedH5130 my bedH4904 with myrrh,H4753 aloes,H174 and cinnamon.H7076
Come,H3212 let us take our fillH7301 of loveH1730 untilH5704 the morning:H1242 let us solaceH5965 ourselves with loves.H159
For the managerH376 is not at home,H1004 he is goneH1980 a longH7350 journey:H1870
He has takenH3947 a bagH6872 of moneyH3701 with him, and will comeH935 homeH1004 at the dayH3117 appointed.H3677
With her muchH7230 fairH3948 speechH3948 she caused him to yield,H5186 with the flatteringH2506 of her lipsH8193 she forcedH5080 him.
He goesH1980 afterH310 her straightway,H6597 as an oxH7794 goesH935 to the slaughter,H2874 or as a foolH191 to the correctionH4148 of the stocks;H5914
TillH5704 a dartH2671 strikeH6398 through his liver;H3516 as a birdH6833 hastensH4116 to the snare,H6341 and knowsH3045 not that it is for his life.H5315
ListenH8085 to me nowH6258 therefore, O you children,H1121 and attendH7181 to the wordsH561 of my mouth.H6310
Let not your heartH3820 declineH7847 to her ways,H1870 goH8582 not astrayH8582 in her paths.H5410
For she has castH5307 down manyH7227 wounded:H2491 yes, manyH3605 strongH6099 men have been slainH2026 by her.
Her houseH1004 is the wayH1870 to hell,H7585 goingH3381 downH3381 to the chambersH2315 of death.H4194
