And I found more bitter than death the woman whose heart is snares and nets, and whose hands are fetters; he who pleases God escapes her, but the sinner is taken by her.
Behold, this is what I found, says the Preacher, adding one thing to another to find the sum,
which my mind has sought repeatedly, but I have not found. One man among a thousand I found, but a woman among all these I have not found.
Behold, this alone I found, that God made man upright, but they have sought out many devices.
