Judges 14:15

15On the fourth
Septuagint, Syriac; Hebrew seventh
day they said to Samson’s wife, b  Entice your husband to tell us what the riddle is, c  lest we burn you and your father’s house with fire. Have you invited us here to impoverish us?”

Proverbs 2:16-19

16 So d  you will be delivered from the forbidden
Hebrew strange
woman,
from f  the adulteress
Hebrew foreign woman
with h  her smooth words,
17who forsakes i  the companion of her youth
and forgets j  the covenant of her God;
18 k  for her house sinks down to death,
and her paths to the departed;
Hebrew  to the Rephaim

19none who go to her come back,
nor do they regain the paths of life.

Proverbs 5:3-11

3For the lips of m  a forbidden
Hebrew strange; also verse 20
woman
drip honey,
and her speech
Hebrew palate
is p  smoother than oil,
4but in the end she is q  bitter as r  wormwood,
s  sharp as t  a two-edged sword.
5Her feet u  go down to death;
her steps follow the path to
Hebrew lay hold of
Sheol;
6she w  does not ponder the path of life;
her ways wander, and she does not know it.
7 And x  now, O sons, listen to me,
and do not depart from the words of my mouth.
8Keep your way far from her,
and do not go near the door of her house,
9lest you give your honor to others
and your years to the merciless,
10lest strangers take their fill of your strength,
and your y  labors go to the house of a foreigner,
11and at the end of your life you z  groan,
when your flesh and body are consumed,

Proverbs 6:24-26

24to preserve you from the evil woman
Revocalization (compare Septuagint) yields  from the wife of a neighbor

from the smooth tongue of ab  the adulteress.
Hebrew  the foreign woman

25 ad  Do not desire her beauty in your heart,
and do not let her capture you with her ae  eyelashes;
26for af  the price of a prostitute is only ag  a loaf of bread
Or (compare Septuagint, Syriac, Vulgate)  for a prostitute leaves a man with nothing but a loaf of bread

but a married woman
Hebrew  a man’s wife
aj  hunts down a precious life.

Proverbs 7:21-27

21 With much seductive speech she persuades him;
with ak  her smooth talk she compels him.
22All at once he follows her,
as an ox goes to the slaughter,
or as a stag is caught fast
Probable reading (compare Septuagint, Vulgate, Syriac); Hebrew  as an anklet for the discipline of a fool

23till an arrow pierces its liver;
as am  a bird rushes into a snare;
he does not know that it will cost him his life.
24 And an  now, O sons, listen to me,
and be attentive to the words of my mouth.
25Let not your heart turn aside to her ways;
do not stray into her paths,
26for many a victim has she laid low,
and all her slain are ao  a mighty throng.
27Her house is ap  the way to Sheol,
going down to the chambers of death.

1 Corinthians 6:15-18

15Do you not know that aq  your bodies are members of Christ? Shall I then take the members of Christ and make them members of a prostitute? Never! 16Or do you not know that he who is joined
Or  who holds fast (compare Genesis 2:24 and Deuteronomy 10:20); also verse 17
to a prostitute becomes one body with her? For, as it is written as  “The two will become one flesh.”
17But he who is joined to the Lord at  becomes one spirit with him. 18 au  Flee from sexual immorality. Every other sin
Or  Every sin
a person commits is outside the body, but the sexually immoral person aw  sins against his own body.
