Discretion will guard you; understanding will protect you.
Wisdom will rescue you from the evil path, from people who twist their words.
They forsake the way of integrity and go on obscure paths.
They enjoy doing evil, rejoicing in their twisted evil.
Their paths are confused; they get lost on their way.
Wisdom will rescue you from the mysterious woman, from the foreign woman with her slick words.
She leaves behind the partner of her youth; she even forgets her covenant with God.
Her house sinks down to death, and her paths go down to the shadowy dead.
All those who go to her will never return; they will never again reach the ways of the living.
So you should stay on the path of good people, guarding the road of the righteous.
Those who have integrity will dwell in the land; the innocent will remain in it.
