The Message (MSG) New International Version (NIV)
24 They'll protect you from wanton women, from the seductive talk of some temptress. 24 keeping you from the immoral woman, from the smooth tongue of the wayward wife.
25 Don't lustfully fantasize on her beauty, nor be taken in by her bedroom eyes. 25 Do not lust in your heart after her beauty or let her captivate you with her eyes,
26 You can buy an hour with a whore for a loaf of bread, but a wanton woman may well eat you alive. 26 for the prostitute reduces you to a loaf of bread, and the adulteress preys upon your very life.
27 Can you build a fire in your lap and not burn your pants? 27 Can a man scoop fire into his lap without his clothes being burned?
28 Can you walk barefoot on hot coals and not get blisters? 28 Can a man walk on hot coals without his feet being scorched?
29 It's the same when you have sex with your neighbor's wife: Touch her and you'll pay for it. No excuses. 29 So is he who sleeps with another man's wife; no one who touches her will go unpunished.
