He goethafter her straightway,a as an oxgoeth to the slaughter, or as a fool to the correction of the stocks;23
Till a dartstrike through his liver; as a birdhasteth to the snare, and knoweth not that it is for his life.24Hearken unto me now therefore, O ye children, and attend to the words of my mouth.25
Let not thine heartdecline to her ways, go not astray in her paths.26
For she hath cast downmanywounded: yea, many strong men have been slain by her.
Her house is the way to hell, going down to the chambers of death.
