Do not be ensnared by a woman's beauty, and do not desire a woman for her possessions.
There is wrath and impudence and great disgrace when a wife supports her husband.
A dejected mind, a gloomy face, and a wounded heart are caused by an evil wife. Drooping hands and weak knees are caused by the wife who does not make her husband happy.
From a woman sin had its beginning, and because of her we all die.
Allow no outlet to water, and no boldness of speech in an evil wife.
If she does not go as you direct, separate her from yourself.
