Proverbs 7:21-23

21-23Soon she has him eating out of her hand,

bewitched by her honeyed speech.

Before you know it, he's trotting behind her,

like a calf led to the butcher shop,

Like a stag lured into ambush

and then shot with an arrow,

Like a bird flying into a net

not knowing that its flying life is over.

24-27So, friends, listen to me,

take these words of mine most seriously.

Don't fool around with a woman like that;

don't even stroll through her neighborhood.

Countless victims come under her spell;

she's the death of many a poor man.

She runs a halfway house to hell,

fits you out with a shroud and a coffin.
