Proverbs 7:1-11 (Holman Christian Standard)

View In My Bible
1 My son, obey my words, and treasure my commands. 2 Keep my commands and live;a protect my teachings as you would the pupil of your eye.b 3 Tie them to your fingers; write them on the tablet of your heart.c 4 Say to wisdom, "You are my sister," and call understanding [your] relative. 5 She will keep you from a forbidden woman, a stranger with her flattering talk.d

A Story of Seduction

6 At the window of my house I looked through my lattice. 7 I saw among the inexperienced,e I noticed among the youths, a young man lacking sense. 8 Crossing the street near her corner, he strolled down the road to her house 9 at twilight, in the evening, in the dark of the night. 10 A woman came to meet him, dressed like a prostitute, having a hidden agenda.f 11 She is loud and defiant; her feet do not stay at home.
