Proverbs 2

Proverbs 2:16-19

16   So you will be delivered from the forbidden1 woman,
    from the adulteress2 with her smooth words,
17   who forsakes the companion of her youth
    and forgets the covenant of her God;
18   for her house sinks down to death,
    and her paths to the departed;3
19   none who go to her come back,
    nor do they regain the paths of life.
