Geneva Study Bible
   1: My son, attend unto my wisdom; Incline thine ear to my understanding:
   2: That thou mayest preserve discretion, And that thy lips may keep knowledge.
   3: For the lips of a strange woman drop honey, And her mouth is smoother than oil:
   4: But in the end she is bitter as wormwood, Sharp as a two-edged sword.
   5: Her feet go down to death; Her steps take hold on Sheol;
   6: So that she findeth not the level path of life: Her ways are unstable, [and] she knoweth [it] not.
   7: Now therefore, [my] sons, hearken unto me, And depart not from the words of my mouth.
   8: Remove thy way far from her, And come not nigh the door of her house;
   9: Lest thou give thine honor unto others, And thy years unto the cruel;
   10: Lest strangers be filled with thy strength, And thy labors [be] in the house of an alien,
   11: And thou mourn at thy latter end, When thy flesh and thy body are consumed,
   12: And say, How have I hated instruction, And my heart despised reproof;
   13: Neither have I obeyed the voice of my teachers, Nor inclined mine ear to them that instructed me!
   14: I was well-nigh in all evil In the midst of the assembly and congregation.
   15: Drink waters out of thine own cistern, And running waters out of thine own well.
   16: Should thy springs be dispersed abroad, And streams of water in the streets?
   17: Let them be for thyself alone, And not for strangers with thee.
   18: Let thy fountain be blessed; And rejoice in the wife of thy youth.
   19: [As] a loving hind and a pleasant doe, Let her breasts satisfy thee at all times; And be thou ravished always with her love.
   20: For why shouldest thou, my son, be ravished with a strange woman, And embrace the bosom of a foreigner?
   21: For the ways of man are before the eyes of Jehovah; And he maketh level all his paths.
   22: His own iniquities shall take the wicked, And he shall be holden with the cords of his sin.
   23: He shall die for lack of instruction; And in the greatness of his folly he shall go astray.
