3 For the lips of an 1adulteress 2drip honey And 3smoother than oil is her speech;
4 But in the end she is 4bitter as wormwood, 5Sharp as a two-edged sword.
5 Her feet 6go down to death, Her steps take hold of Sheol.
6 She does not ponder the 7path of life; Her ways are 8unstable, she 9does not know it.
7 10Now then, my sons, listen to me And 11do not depart from the words of my mouth.
8 12Keep your way far from her And do not go near the 13door of her house,
9 Or you will give your vigor to others And your years to the cruel one;
10 And strangers will be filled with your strength And your hard-earned goods will go to the house of an alien;
11 And you groan at your final end, When your flesh and your body are consumed;
