And behold, a woman comes to meet him, 1Dressed as a harlot and cunning of heart.
She is 2boisterous and rebellious, Her 3feet do not remain at home ;
She is now in the streets, now4in the squares, And 5lurks by everycorner.
So she seizes him and kisses him aAnd with a 6brazenface she says to him:
"bI was due to offer7peaceofferings ; Today I have 8paid my vows.
15"Therefore I have come out to meet you, To seek your presenceearnestly, and I have found you.
"I have spread my couch with 9coverings, With colored10linens of Egypt.
"I have sprinkled my bed With 11myrrh, aloes and 12cinnamon.
18"Come, let us drink our fill of loveuntilmorning ; Let us delight ourselves with caresses.
"For cmy husband is not at home, He has gone on a longjourney ;
He has taken a 13bag of moneydwith him, At the fullmoon he will comehome."
