7:1 My son [H1121] , keep [H8104] my words [H561] , and lay up [H6845] my commandments [H4687] with thee.
7:2 Keep [H8104] my commandments [H4687] , and live [H2421] ; and my law [H8451] as the apple [H380] of thine eye [H5869] .
7:3 Bind [H7194] them upon thy fingers [H676] , write [H3789] them upon the table [H3871] of thine heart [H3820] .
7:4 Say [H559] unto wisdom [H2451] , Thou [art] my sister [H269] ; and call [H7121] understanding [H998] [thy] kinswoman [H4129] :
7:5 That they may keep [H8104] thee from the strange [H2114] woman [H802] , from the stranger [H5237] [which] flattereth [H2505] with her words [H561] .
7:6 For at the window [H2474] of my house [H1004] I looked [H8259] through my casement [H822] ,
7:7 And beheld [H7200] among the simple ones [H6612] , I discerned [H995] among the youths [H1121] , a young man [H5288] void [H2638] of understanding [H3820] ,(the youths: Heb. the sons)
7:8 Passing through [H5674] the street [H7784] near [H681] her corner [H6434] ; and he went [H6805] the way [H1870] to her house [H1004] ,
7:9 In the twilight [H5399] , in the evening [H3117] [H6153] , in the black [H380] and dark [H653] night [H3915] :(in the evening: Heb. in the evening of day)
7:10 And, behold, there met [H7125] him a woman [H802] [with] the attire [H7897] of an harlot [H2181] , and subtil [H5341] of heart [H3820] .
7:11 (She [is] loud [H1993] and stubborn [H5637] ; her feet [H7272] abide [H7931] not in her house [H1004] :
7:12 Now [H6471] [is she] without [H2351] , now [H6471] in the streets [H7339] , and lieth in wait [H693] at [H681] every corner [H6438] .)
7:13 So she caught [H2388] him, and kissed [H5401] him, [and] with an impudent [H5810] face [H6440] said [H559] unto him,(with: Heb. she strengthened her face and said)
7:14 [I have] peace [H8002] offerings [H2077] with me; this day [H3117] have I payed [H7999] my vows [H5088] .(I have: Heb. Peace offerings are upon me)
7:15 Therefore came I forth [H3318] to meet [H7125] thee, diligently to seek [H7836] thy face [H6440] , and I have found [H4672] thee.
7:16 I have decked [H7234] my bed [H6210] with coverings [H4765] of tapestry, with carved [H2405] [works], with fine linen [H330] of Egypt [H4714] .
7:17 I have perfumed [H5130] my bed [H4904] with myrrh [H4753] , aloes [H174] , and cinnamon [H7076] .
7:18 Come [H3212] , let us take our fill [H7301] of love [H1730] until the morning [H1242] : let us solace [H5965] ourselves with loves [H159] .
7:19 For the goodman [H376] [is] not at home [H1004] , he is gone [H1980] a long [H7350] journey [H1870] :
7:20 He hath taken [H3947] a bag [H6872] of money [H3701] with him [H3027] , [and] will come [H935] home [H1004] at the day [H3117] appointed [H3677] .(with: Heb. in his hand)(the day: or, the new moon)
7:21 With her much [H7230] fair speech [H3948] she caused him to yield [H5186] , with the flattering [H2506] of her lips [H8193] she forced [H5080] him.
7:22 He goeth [H1980] after [H310] her straightway [H6597] , as an ox [H7794] goeth [H935] to the slaughter [H2874] , or as a fool [H191] to the correction [H4148] of the stocks [H5914] ;(straightway: Heb. suddenly)
7:23 Till a dart [H2671] strike [H6398] through his liver [H3516] ; as a bird [H6833] hasteth [H4116] to the snare [H6341] , and knoweth [H3045] not that it [is] for his life [H5315] .
7:24 Hearken [H8085] unto me now therefore, O ye children [H1121] , and attend [H7181] to the words [H561] of my mouth [H6310] .
7:25 Let not thine heart [H3820] decline [H7847] to her ways [H1870] , go not astray [H8582] in her paths [H5410] .
7:26 For she hath cast down [H5307] many [H7227] wounded [H2491] : yea, many strong [H6099] [men] have been slain [H2026] by her.
7:27 Her house [H1004] [is] the way [H1870] to hell [H7585] , going down [H3381] to the chambers [H2315] of death [H4194] .
