That they may keep you from an adulteress, From the foreigner who flatters with her words. (Proverbs 7:5)

With her many persuasions she entices him; With her flattering lips she seduces him. (Proverbs 7:21)

Suddenly he follows her As an ox goes to the slaughter, Or as one in fetters to the discipline of a fool, (Proverbs 7:22)

Until an arrow pierces through his liver; As a bird hastens to the snare, So he does not know that it will cost him his life. (Proverbs 7:23)
