RF PRO 7:1 "My son, give regard to my words,—
Lay up with yourself my commands;
RF PRO 7:2 Regard my commandments,—and live,—
And my rules like the ball of your eye.
RF PRO 7:3 Let them girdle your fingers around,
Inscribe on the book of your heart;
RF PRO 7:4 Say to Wisdom, 'My sister are you;
And Discernment address as your friend,
RF PRO 7:5 Who will guard you from women depraved;
From the stranger with slippery tongue."
RF PRO 7:6 Once from my house, thro' the lattice,
At the time of the evening I looked,
RF PRO 7:7 And, watching, I saw in the Broadway,
With the young men a youth without sense,
RF PRO 7:8 Who passed thro' the street to her corner,—
He stalked on the way to her house,
RF PRO 7:9 In the twilight, the dusk of the day,
In the gloom of the night, towards dark;
RF PRO 7:10 Then I saw a woman approach him,
A dressed harlot,—and crafty of heart,
RF PRO 7:11 (Such are noisy, and cannot be quiet,
And their feet never rest in the house,
RF PRO 7:12 But are now in the streets,—in the squares,—
And lurking in every nook),
RF PRO 7:13 And she eagerly seized him and kissed,
And pouted her mouth, and addressed;"
RF PRO 7:14 'I have offered my offering of thanks,—
to-day I have paid what I vowed;
RF PRO 7:15 And so I have come out to meet you,—
To seek for your face, and have found!
RF PRO 7:16 I have spread pretty rugs on my couch,—
Of Egypt the bright-colored chintz.
RF PRO 7:17 I have charmingly scented my chamber,
With cinnamon, sandal, and myrrh!—
RF PRO 7:18 "' Come in! let us riot with loves!
And delight with the darlings till dawn;—
RF PRO 7:19 For the master is not in my home,—
He has gone on a journey afar!
RF PRO 7:20 He took with him a bag full of cash;—
He comes home on the day of new moon.'
RF PRO 7:21 She seduced him by prattling much;—
She deludes by her pattering lips!—
RF PRO 7:22 He went, like an ox to be slain;
Went and leaped like a stag to a net,
RF PRO 7:23 Till his liver is pierced by her dart;—
As a bird he makes haste to the trap,
And knows not, it is or his life!
RF PRO 7:24 But you, my son, listen to me;
And attend to the words of my mouth,
RF PRO 7:25 Incline not your heart to her path,
Nor turn yourself to her arcade.
RF PRO 7:26 For many fall wounded by her,
And her murdered would make a great host;—
RF PRO 7:27 Her house is the path to the grave;
It leads down to the Chambers of Death!"


AKJV ROM 8:32 He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?
