The Lips Of The Adulterous Woman 5:1-6

The Lips Of The Adulterous Woman
Proverbs 5:1-6

1
My son, pay attention to my wisdom,
turn your ear to my words of insight,
2
that you may maintain discretion
and your lips may preserve knowledge.
3
For the lips of the adulterous woman drip honey,
and her speech is smoother than oil;
4
but in the end she is bitter as gall,
sharp as a double-edged sword.
5
Her feet go down to death;
her steps lead straight to the grave.
6
She gives no thought to the way of life;
her paths wander aimlessly, but she does not know it.

but in the end she is bitter as gall
5:5A
Her feet go down to death;

The words of the adulteress are tempting,
but the disconcerting end is death.
