The foolish woman is loud; she is ignorant and knows nothing.
She sits at the door of her house, on a seat at the high places of the town,
calling to those who pass by, who are going straight on their way,
"You who are simple, turn in here!" And to those without sense she says,
"Stolen water is sweet, and bread eaten in secret is pleasant."
But they do not know that the dead a are there, that her guests are in the depths of Sheol.
