Proverbs 7 - King James 3 - The Literal Traslation

1. My son, keep my words and treasure up My commands within you.

2. Keep My commands and live, and keep My Law as the pupil of your eye.

3. Bind them on your fingers; write them on the tablet of your heart.

4. Say to wisdom, You are my sister, and call understanding your kinswoman,

5. to keep you from the strange woman, from the foreign one with her flattering words.

Beware of Adultery

6. For at the window of my house I looked through my lattice,

7. and I saw in the ones of simplicity, I observed among the sons a young man lacking heart,

8. passing through the street near her corner; and he stepped the way to her house,

9. in the twilight, in the evening, in the black and darkness of night.

10. And, behold, a woman to meet him, in the dress of one doing adultery, and a guarded heart;

11. she is loud and stubborn; her feet do not abide in her own house.

12. At this time she is outside, now in the streets, and she lies in wait at every corner;

13. and she seizes him and kisses him; she hardens her face and says to him,

14. Sacrifices of peace offerings are on me, today I have completed my vows;

15. so I came out to meet you, early to seek your face, and I have found you.

16. I have spread my couch with coverings, with striped cloths of Egyptian linen.

17. I have sprinkled my bed with myrrh, aloes and cinnamon.

18. Come, let us take our fill of love until the morning, let us delight ourselves with caresses.

19. For my husband is not in his house; he is going in the way to a distant place.

20. He has taken a bag of silver in his hand; at the day of the full moon he will enter his house.

21. With her much persuasiveness she turned him aside; with the flattering of her lips she forced him,

22. going after her at once, as an ox goes to the slaughter; or as one in fetters goes to the correction of a foolish one,

23. until an arrow strikes through his liver, like a bird hastening to the snare, and not knowing that it is for his soul.

24. And now listen to Me, O sons, and attend to the words of My mouth:

25. Do not let your heart turn aside to her ways; do not go astray in her paths.

26. For many are the wounded she has caused to fall, and numerous all the ones being slain by her.

27. The ways of Sheol are in her house, leading down to the rooms of death.
