NKJV 20 He has taken a bag of money with him, And will come home on the appointed day." NIV 20 He took his purse filled with money and will not be home till full moon." NKJV 21 With her enticing speech she caused him to yield, With her flattering lips she seduced him. NIV 21 With persuasive words she led him astray; she seduced him with her smooth talk. NKJV 22 Immediately he went after her, as an ox goes to the slaughter, Or as a fool to the correction of the stocks, NIV 22 All at once he followed her like an ox going to the slaughter, like a deer stepping into a noose NKJV 23 Till an arrow struck his liver. As a bird hastens to the snare, He did not know it would cost his life. NIV 23 till an arrow pierces his liver, like a bird darting into a snare, little knowing it will cost him his life.

NKJV 27 Her house is the way to hell, Descending to the chambers of death. NIV 27 Her house is a highway to the grave, leading down to the chambers of death.
