Listen to the Bible

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 7:1 -
My son, keep my words,
And lay up my commandments with thee.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 7:2 -
Keep my commandments and live;
And my law as the apple of thine eye.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 7:3 -
Bind them upon thy fingers;
Write them upon the tablet of thy heart.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 7:4 -
Say unto wisdom, Thou art my sister;
And call understanding thy kinswoman:

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 7:5 -
That they may keep thee from the strange woman,
From the foreigner that flattereth with her words.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 7:6 -
For at the window of my house
I looked forth through my lattice;

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 7:7 -
And I beheld among the simple ones,
I discerned among the youths,
A young man void of understanding,

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 7:8 -
Passing through the street near her corner;
And he went the way to her house,

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 7:9 -
In the twilight, in the evening of the day,
In the middle of the night and in the darkness.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 7:10 -
And, behold, there met him a woman
With the attire of a harlot, and wily of heart.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 7:11 -
(She is clamorous and wilful;
Her feet abide not in her house:

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 7:12 -
Now she is in the streets, now in the broad places,
And lieth in wait at every corner.)

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 7:13 -
So she caught him, and kissed him,
And with an impudent face she said unto him:

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 7:14 -
Sacrifices of peace-offerings are with me;
This day have I paid my vows.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 7:15 -
Therefore came I forth to meet thee,
Diligently to seek thy face, and I have found thee.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 7:16 -
I have spread my couch with carpets of tapestry,
With striped cloths of the yarn of Egypt.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 7:17 -
I have perfumed my bed
With myrrh, aloes, and cinnamon.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 7:18 -
Come, let us take our fill of love until the morning;
Let us solace ourselves with loves.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 7:19 -
For the man is not at home;
He is gone a long journey:

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 7:20 -
He hath taken a bag of money with him;
He will come home at the full moon.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 7:21 -
With her much fair speech she causeth him to yield;
With the flattering of her lips she forceth him along.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 7:22 -
He goeth after her straightway,
As an ox goeth to the slaughter,
Or as one in fetters to the correction of the fool;

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 7:23 -
Till an arrow strike through his liver;
As a bird hasteth to the snare,
And knoweth not that it is for his life.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 7:24 -
Now therefore, my sons, hearken unto me,
And attend to the words of my mouth.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 7:25 -
Let not thy heart decline to her ways;
Go not astray in her paths.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 7:26 -
For she hath cast down many wounded:
Yea, all her slain are a mighty host.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 7:27 -
Her house is the way to Sheol,
Going down to the chambers of death.
