7:3 Bind them on your fingers. Write them on the tablet of your heart.
7:4 Tell wisdom, "You are my sister." Call understanding your relative,
7:5 That they may keep you from the strange woman, From the foreigner who flatters with her words.
7:6 For at the window of my house, I looked forth through my lattice.
7:7 I saw among the simple ones. I discerned among the youths a young man void of understanding,
7:10 Behold, there a woman met him with the attire of a prostitute, And with crafty intent.
7:11 She is loud and defiant. Her feet don`t stay in her house.
7:12 Now she is in the streets, now in the squares, And lurking at every corner.
7:13 So she caught him, and kissed him. With an impudent face she said to him:
7:15 Therefore I came out to meet you, To diligently seek your face, And I have found you.
7:16 I have spread my couch with carpets of tapestry, With striped cloths of the yarn of Egypt.
7:22 He followed her immediately, As an ox goes to the slaughter, As a fool stepping into a noose.
7:23 Until an arrow strikes through his liver, As a bird hurries to the snare, And doesn`t know that it will cost his life.
7:24 Now therefore, sons, listen to me. Pay attention to the words of my mouth.
7:26 For she has thrown down many wounded. Yes, all her slain are a mighty host.
7:27 Her house is the way to Sheol, Going down to the chambers of death.
