Warning Against Adultery

Proverbs 5:1–6 (ESV)

My son, be attentive to my wisdom;

incline your ear to my understanding,

that you may keep discretion,

and your lips may guard knowledge.

For the lips of a forbidden woman drip honey,

and her speech is smoother than oil,

but in the end she is bitter as wormwood,

sharp as a two-edged sword.

Her feet go down to death;

her steps follow the path to Sheol;

she does not ponder the path of life;

her ways wander, and she does not know it.

Proverbs 5:8–12 (ESV)

Keep your way far from her,

and do not go near the door of her house,

lest you give your honor to others

and your years to the merciless,

10  lest strangers take their fill of your strength,

and your labors go to the house of a foreigner,

11  and at the end of your life you groan,

when your flesh and body are consumed,

12  and you say, “How I hated discipline,

and my heart despised reproof!

Proverbs 5:20–21 (ESV)

20  Why should you be intoxicated, my son, with a forbidden woman

and embrace the bosom of an adulteress?

21  For a man’s ways are before the eyes of the Lord,

and he ponders all his paths.
