Proverbs 5

1  My son, attend unto my wisdom, and bow thine ear to my understanding:

2  That thou mayest regard discretion, and that thy lips may keep knowledge.

3  For the lips of a strange woman drop as an honeycomb, and her mouth is smoother than oil:

4  But her end is bitter as wormwood, sharp as a twoedged sword.

5  Her feet go down to death; her steps take hold on hell.

6  Lest thou shouldest ponder the path of life, her ways are moveable, that thou canst not know them.

7  Hear me now therefore, O ye children, and depart not from the words of my mouth.

8  Remove thy way far from her, and come not nigh the door of her house:

9  Lest thou give thine honour unto others, and thy years unto the cruel:

10  Lest strangers be filled with thy wealth; and thy labours be in the house of a stranger;
