Proverbs 7

6 For at the window of my house I looked out through my lattice,

7 And I saw among the naive, And discerned among the youths A young man lacking sense,

8 Passing through the street near her corner; And he takes the way to her house,

9 In the twilight, in the evening, In the middle of the night and in the darkness.

10 And behold, a woman comes to meet him, Dressed as a harlot and cunning of heart.

11 She is boisterous and rebellious, Her feet do not remain at home;

12 She is now in the streets, now in the squares, And lurks by every corner.

13 So she seizes him and kisses him And with a brazen face she says to him:

14 'I was due to offer peace offerings; Today I have paid my vows.

15 'Therefore I have come out to meet you, To seek your presence earnestly, and I have found you.

16 'I have spread my couch with coverings, With colored linens of Egypt.

17 'I have sprinkled my bed With myrrh, aloes and cinnamon.

18 'Come, let us drink our fill of love until morning; Let us delight ourselves with caresses.

19 'For my husband is not at home, He has gone on a long journey;

20 He has taken a bag of money with him, At the full moon he will come home.'

21 With her many persuasions she entices him; With her flattering lips she seduces him.

22 Suddenly he follows her As an ox goes to the slaughter, Or as one in fetters to the discipline of a fool,

23 Until an arrow pierces through his liver; As a bird hastens to the snare, So he does not know that it will cost him his life.

24 Now therefore, my sons, listen to me, And pay attention to the words of my mouth.

25 Do not let your heart turn aside to her ways, Do not stray into her paths.

26 For many are the victims she has cast down, And numerous are all her slain.

27 Her house is the way to Sheol, Descending to the chambers of death.




The Apocrypha

Please note that, if you want a book from the Apocrypha (1 Esdras, 2 Esdras, Greek Additions to Esther, 1 Maccabees, 2 Maccabees, Tobit, Judith, Wisdom of Solomon, Sirach, Baruch, Epistle of Jeremiah, Susannah, Azariah, Manasseh, Bel and the Dragon) they are currently available only by choosing "Apocrypha - King James Version".

Other than Epistle of Jeremiah, you only need the first five letters of the book name (and actually, in some cases you can use just the first three or four, e.g. "Bel"). For the Greek Additions to Ester, you can use "Greek" as the book name. For Ecclesiasticus, please use its alternate name, "Sirach".
