1. My son,attendunto my wisdom,andbowthine earto my understanding:2. That thou mayest regarddiscretion, andthatthy lipsmay keepknowledge.3. ¶For the lipsof a strange womandropasan honeycomb,and her mouthissmootherthan oil:mouth: Heb. palate4. But her endis bitteras wormwood,sharpas a twoedgedsword.5. Her feetgo downto death;her stepstake holdon hell.6. Lest thou shouldest ponderthe pathof life,her waysare moveable,thatthou canst not knowthem.7. Hearme now therefore, O ye children,and departnot from the wordsof my mouth.8. Removethy wayfarfrom her, and come not nighthe doorof her house:9. Lest thou givethine honourunto others,and thy yearsunto the cruel:10. Lest strangersbe filledwith thy wealth;and thy laboursbein the houseof a stranger;thy wealth: Heb. thy strength11. And thou mournat the last,when thy fleshand thy bodyare consumed,12. And say,How have I hatedinstruction,and my heartdespisedreproof;13. And have not obeyedthe voiceof my teachers,nor inclinedmine earto them that instructed me!
