These commands and this teaching will keep you from the immoral woman, from the smooth tongue of an adulterous woman.
Don't lust for her beauty. Don't let her coyness seduce you.
For a prostitute will bring you to poverty, and sleeping with another man's wife may cost you your very life.
Can a man scoop fire into his lap and not be burned?
Can he walk on hot coals and not blister his feet?
So it is with the man who sleeps with another man's wife. He who embraces her will not go unpunished.
