Immediately he went after her, as an ox goes to the slaughter, Or as a fool to the correction of the stocks, a23
Till an arrow struck his liver. As a bird hastens to the snare, He did not know it would cost his life.
Now therefore, listen to me, my children; Pay attention to the words of my mouth:
Do not let your heart turn aside to her ways, Do not stray into her paths;
For she has cast down many wounded, And all who were slain by her were strong men.
Her house is the way to hell, b Descending to the chambers of death.
