Proverbs 2:16-1916 So d you will be delivered from the forbidden ▼
from f the adulteress ▼
▼Hebrew foreign womanwith 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 5:3-113For the lips of m a forbidden ▼
▼Hebrew strange; also verse 20woman drip honey,
and her speech ▼
▼Hebrew palateis 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 ofSheol;
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,

▼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 wifeaj hunts down a precious life.
Proverbs 7:21-2721 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 6:15-1815Do 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 17to 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 sina person commits is outside the body, but the sexually immoral person aw sins against his own body.
