to preserve you from the wife of another, from the smooth tongue of the adulteress.
References for Proverbs 6:24
Do not desire her beauty in your heart, and do not let her capture you with her eyelashes;
for a prostitute's fee is only a loaf of bread, but the wife of another stalks a man's very life.
References for Proverbs 6:26
Can fire be carried in the bosom without burning one's clothes?
Or can one walk on hot coals without scorching the feet?
So is he who sleeps with his neighbor's wife; no one who touches her will go unpunished.
