Geneva Study Bible
   1: My son, keep my sayings, and let my rules be stored up with you.
   2: Keep my rules and you will have life; let my teaching be to you as the light of your eyes;
   3: Let them be fixed to your fingers, and recorded in your heart.
   4: Say to wisdom, You are my sister; let knowledge be named your special friend:
   5: So that they may keep you from the strange woman, even from her whose words are smooth.
   6: Looking out from my house, and watching through the window,
   7: I saw among the young men one without sense,
   8: Walking in the street near the turn of her road, going on the way to her house,
   9: At nightfall, in the evening of the day, in the black dark of the night.
   10: And the woman came out to him, in the dress of a loose woman, with a designing heart;
   11: She is full of noise and uncontrolled; her feet keep not in her house.
   12: Now she is in the street, now in the open spaces, waiting at every turning of the road.
   13: So she took him by his hand, kissing him, and without a sign of shame she said to him:
   14: I have a feast of peace-offerings, for today my oaths have been effected.
   15: So I came out in the hope of meeting you, looking for you with care, and now I have you.
   16: My bed is covered with cushions of needlework, with coloured cloths of the cotton thread of Egypt;
   17: I have made my bed sweet with perfumes and spices.
   18: Come, let us take our pleasure in love till the morning, having joy in love's delights.
   19: For the master of the house is away on a long journey:
   20: He has taken a bag of money with him; he is coming back at the full moon.
   21: With her fair words she overcame him, forcing him with her smooth lips.
   22: The simple man goes after her, like an ox going to its death, like a roe pulled by a cord;
   23: Like a bird falling into a net; with no thought that his life is in danger, till an arrow goes into his side.
   24: So now, my sons, give ear to me; give attention to the sayings of my mouth;
   25: Let not your heart be turned to her ways, do not go wandering in her footsteps.
   26: For those wounded and made low by her are great in number; and all those who have come to their death through her are a great army.
   27: Her house is the way to the underworld, going down to the rooms of death.
