Proverbs Chapter 7The Holy Bible, King James Version
7:1My son, keep my words, and lay up my commandments with thee.
7:2Keep my commandments, and live; and my law as the apple of thine eye.
7:3Bind them upon thy fingers, write them upon the table of thine heart.
7:4Say unto wisdom, Thou art my sister; and call understanding thy kinswoman:
7:5That they may keep thee from the strange woman, from the stranger which flattereth with her words.
7:6For at the window of my house I looked through my casement,
7:7And beheld among the simple ones, I discerned among the youths, a young man void of understanding,
7:8Passing through the street near her corner; and he went the way to her house,
7:9In the twilight, in the evening, in the black and dark night:
7:10And, behold, there met him a woman with the attire of an harlot, and subtil of heart.
7:11(She is loud and stubborn; her feet abide not in her house:
7:12Now is she without, now in the streets, and lieth in wait at every corner.)
7:13So she caught him, and kissed him, and with an impudent face said unto him,
7:14I have peace offerings with me; this day have I payed my vows.
7:15Therefore came I forth to meet thee, diligently to seek thy face, and I have found thee.
7:16I have decked my bed with coverings of tapestry, with carved works, with fine linen of Egypt.
7:17I have perfumed my bed with myrrh, aloes, and cinnamon.
7:18Come, let us take our fill of love until the morning: let us solace ourselves with loves.
7:19For the goodman is not at home, he is gone a long journey:
7:20He hath taken a bag of money with him, and will come home at the day appointed.
7:21With her much fair speech she caused him to yield, with the flattering of her lips she forced him.
7:22He goeth after her straightway, as an ox goeth to the slaughter, or as a fool to the correction of the stocks;
7:23Till a dart strike through his liver; as a bird hasteth to the snare, and knoweth not that it is for his life.
7:24Hearken unto me now therefore, O ye children, and attend to the words of my mouth.
7:25Let not thine heart decline to her ways, go not astray in her paths.
7:26For she hath cast down many wounded: yea, many strong men have been slain by her.
7:27Her house is the way to hell, going down to the chambers of death.
