Proverbs Chapter 7

, ; ‍, . 1 My son, keep my words, and lay up my commandments with thee.
‍ ; , . 2 Keep my commandments and live, and my teaching as the apple of thine eye.
-; , - . 3 Bind them upon thy fingers, write them upon the table of thy heart.
, ; , . 4 Say unto wisdom: 'Thou art my sister', and call understanding thy kinswoman;
, ; , . 5 That they may keep thee from the strange woman, from the alien woman that maketh smooth her words.
, -- . 6 For at the window of my house I looked forth through my lattice;
, -- -. 7 And I beheld among the thoughtless ones, I discerned among the youths, a young man void of understanding,
, ; . 8 Passing through the street near her corner, and he went the way to her house;
- ; , . 9 In the twilight, in the evening of the day, in the blackness of night and the darkness.
, ; , . 10 And, behold, there met him a woman with the attire of a harlot, and wily of heart.
; , - . 11 She is riotous and rebellious, her feet abide not in her house;
, -- ; - . 12 Now she is in the streets, now in the broad places, and lieth in wait at every corner.
, ; , . 13 So she caught him, and kissed him, and with an impudent face she said unto him:
; , . 14 'Sacrifices of peace-offerings were due from me; this day have I paid my vows.
-, ; , . 15 Therefore came I forth to meet thee, to seek thy face, and I have found thee.
, ; , . 16 I have decked my couch with coverlets, with striped cloths of the yarn of Egypt.
-- , . 17 I have perfumed my bed with myrrh, aloes, and cinnamon.
, -; , . 18 Come, let us take our fill of love until the morning; let us solace ourselves with loves.
; , . 19 For my husband is not at home, he is gone a long journey;
-, ; , . 20 He hath taken the bag of money with him; he will come home at the full moon.'
, ; , . 21 With her much fair speech she causeth him to yield, with the blandishment of her lips she enticeth him away.
, : , - ; , - . 22 He goeth after her straightway, as an ox that goeth to the slaughter, or as one in fetters to the correction of the fool;
, -- -;
-, - .
23 Till an arrow strike through his liver; as a bird hasteneth to the snare-- {N}
and knoweth not that it is at the cost of his life.
, -; , -. 24 Now therefore, O ye children, hearken unto me, and attend to the words of my mouth.
- - ; -, . 25 Let not thy heart decline to her ways, go not astray in her paths.
- ; , -. 26 For she hath cast down many wounded; yea, a mighty host are all her slain.
; , --. 27 Her house is the way to the nether-world, going down to the chambers of death. {P}
