Proverbs 7 Cross References - ISV

1 My son, guard what I say and treasure my commands. 2 Keep my commands and you'll live. Guard my teaching as you do your eyesight. 3 Strap them to your fingers, and engrave them on the tablet of your heart. 4 Say to wisdom, "You're my sister!" and call understanding your close relative, 5 so they can keep you from an adulterous woman, from the immoral woman with her seductive words. 6 For from a window in my house I peered through the lattice work, 7 and I noticed among the naïve {— } that is, I discerned among the youths {— } a senseless young man. 8 Proceeding down the street near her corner, he makes his way toward her house 9 at twilight, during the evening, even during the darkest part of the night. 10 Look! A woman makes her way to meet him, dressed as a prostitute and intending to entrap him. 11 Brazen she is {— } and defiant {— } her feet don't remain at home. 12 Now she is in the street, now in the plazas, she lurks near every corner. 13 So she grabs hold of him and kisses him, with a brazen face she speaks to him, 14 "I have given my peace offerings, and today I fulfilled my vows. 15 Therefore I've come out to meet you, I've looked specifically for you, and I found you! 16 I've decorated my bed with new coverings {— } embroidered linen from Egypt. 17 I've perfumed my bed with myrrh, aloes, and cinnamon. 18 Come, let's make love until dawn; let's comfort ourselves with love, 19 because my husband isn't home. He left on a long trip. 20 He took a wallet full of cash in his hand and he'll return home in a month." 21 She leads him astray with great persuasion; with flattering lips she seduces him. 22 All of a sudden he follows her like an ox fit for slaughter or like a fool fit for a trap 23 until an arrow pierces his liver. As a bird falls into a snare, he doesn't realize his fatal decision. 24 So listen to me, my sons, and pay attention to what I have to say. 25 Don't be led astray by her lifestyle, and don't imitate her behavior. 26 For many are the victims whom she has conquered, and many are her slain. 27 Her house leads to Sheol, descending to death's catacombs.
