My child, be attentive to my wisdom; incline your ear to my understanding,
so that you may hold on to prudence, and your lips may guard knowledge.
For the lips of a loose a woman drip honey, and her speech is smoother than oil;
but in the end she is bitter as wormwood, sharp as a two-edged sword.
Her feet go down to death; her steps follow the path to Sheol.
She does not keep straight to the path of life; her ways wander, and she does not know it.
