Proverbs 7:1-27

1 My son, keep my sayings, and, my commandments, treasure by thee; 2 Keep my commandments and live, and mine instruction, as the pupil of thine eye; 3 Bind them upon thy fingers, write them, on the tablet of thy heart; 4 Say unto wisdom, My sister, thou! and, an acquaintance, call thou, understanding: 5 That thou mayest be kept, from the woman that is a stranger, from the female unknown, who, with her speeches, doth flatter. 6 For, in the window of my house, through my lattice, I looked out; 7 And saw among the simple ones, discerned among the youths, A young man lacking sense; 8 Passing through the street, near her corner, and, on the way to her house, he sauntered along; 9 In the twilight, in the evening of the day, in the midst of the night, and the gloom; 10 And lo! a woman, came to meet him, attired as one unchaste, of a wily heart. 11 Boisterous, is she, and rebellious, In her house, abide not her feet; 12 Now outside, now in the broadways, and, near every corner, she lieth in wait: 13 So she caught him, and kissed him, and, embolding her face, she said to him: 14 Peace-offerings, are by me, to-day, have I paid my vows; 15 For this cause, came I forth to meet thee, to seek diligently thy face, and I have found thee: 16 Coverlets, have I spread on my couch of pleasure, dark-hued stuffs, of the yarn of Egypt; 17 I have sprinkled my bed, with myrrh, aloes, and cinnamon: 18 Come! let us take our fill of endearments, until morning, let us delight ourselves with caresses; 19 For the husband is not in his house, he hath gone on a journey afar; 20 A bag of silver, hath he taken in his hand, On the day of the full moon, will he enter his house. 21 She turneth him aside, with her great persuasiveness,—with the flattery of her lips, she compelleth him: 22 Going after her instantly, as an ox, to the slaughter, he entereth, and, as in fetters, unto the correction of a fool. 23 Until an arrow cleaveth his liver, as a bird hasteth into a snare, and knoweth not, that, for his life, it is! 24 Now, therefore, ye sons, hearken unto me, and attend, to the sayings of my mouth; 25 Let not thy heart, turn aside to her ways, Do not go astray, in her paths. 26 For, many, wounded, hath she caused to fail,—yea strong men, slain wholly by her: 27 Ways to hades, are in her house, descending into the chambers of death.

Romans 1:24-32

24 Wherefore God gave them up in the covetings of their hearts unto impurity, so as to be dishonouring their bodies among them,— 25 Who, indeed, exchanged away the truth of God for the falsehood, and rendered worship and service unto the creature rather than unto the Creator,—who is blessed unto the ages. Amen! 26 For this cause, God gave them up unto dishonourable passions; for, even their females, exchanged away the natural use into that which is against nature,— 27 In like manner also, even the males, leaving the natural use of the female, flamed out in their eager desire one for another, males with males, the indecency, effecting,—and, the necessary recompence of their error, within themselves, duly receiving;— 28 And, even as they did not approve to be holding, God, in acknowledgment, God gave them up unto a disapproved mind to be doing the things that are not becoming, 29 Filled with all unrighteousness, wickedness, greed, baseness, full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, evil disposition, 30 Whisperers, detractors, haters of God, insolent, arrogant, vain boasters, inventors of vices, unto parents unyielding, 31 Without discernment, regardless of covenants, without natural affection, unmerciful:— 32 Who, indeed, having acknowledged the righteous sentence of God,—that, they who such things as these do practise, are worthy of death, not only, the same things, are doing, but are even delighting together with them who are practising [them] .

2 Peter 2:12-14

12 These, however, as unreasoning creatures that have been bred as being, by nature, for capture and destruction, in the things they are ignorant of, uttering defamation, in their spoiling, shall also be made a spoil,— 13 Doing wrong themselves, for a reward of wrong, accounting, a delight, their day-time delicacy, spots and blemishes, indulging in delicacies with their stratagems, as they carouse together with you, 14 Having, eyes, full of an adulteress, and that cannot rest from sin, enticing unstable souls, having, a heart trained in greed,—children of a curse,—

Isaiah 3:16-17

16 Because haughty are the daughters of Zion, And they walk with neck thrown back, and wanton eyes,—Tripping along as they go, And with their feet, making, a tinkling sound, 17 Therefore will My Lord, smite with leprosy the crown of hair of the daughters of Zion,—And, as for Yahweh, their shame, will he lay bare!

Exodus 20:17

17 Thou shalt not covet, thy neighbours house,—thou shalt not covet, thy neighbour’s wife nor his servant nor his handmaid nor his ox, nor his ass, nor anything which belongeth unto thy neighbour.

1 John 2:1-29

1 My dear children! these things, am I writing unto you, in order that ye may not be committing sin. And, if anyone should commit sin, an Advocate, have we, with the Father, Jesus Christ, the Righteous; 2 And, he, is, a propitiation, concerning our sins,—and, not concerning our own only, but, also concerning those of the whole world. 3 And, hereby, perceive we, that we understand him,—if, his commandments, we are keeping. 4 He that saith—I understand him! And, his commandments, is not keeping, is false, and, in him, the truth is not! 5 But whosoever may be keeping his word, of a truth, in this man, the love of God hath been made perfect. Hereby, perceive we, that, in him, we are. 6 He that saith, that, in him, he abideth, ought, just as He walked, himself also, to be walking. 7 Beloved! no new commandment, am I writing unto you; but an old commandment, which ye have been holding from the beginning: The old commandment is the word which ye have heard. 8 Again, a new commandment, am I writing unto you,—which thing is true, in him and in you, because, the darkness, is passing away, and, the real light, already is shining. 9 He that saith he is, in the light, and hateth, his brother, is, in the darkness, until even now! 10 He that loveth his brother, is abiding, in the light, and, cause of stumbling, in him, is there none. 11 Whereas, he that hateth his brother, in the darkness, dwelleth, and in the darkness, walketh; and knoweth not whither he is drifting, because the, darkness, hath blinded his eyes. 12 I write unto you, dear children, because your sins have been forgiven you, for the sake of his name: 13 I write unto you, fathers, because ye understand him who was from the beginning: I write unto you, young men, because ye have overcome the wicked one. I have written unto you, little children, because ye understand the Father: 14 I have written unto you, fathers, because ye understand him who was from the beginning: I have written you, young men, because ye are, strong, and the word of God, within you, abideth, and ye have overcome the wicked one. 15 Be not loving the world, nor yet the things that are in the world: if anyone be loving the world, the love of the Father is not in him. 16 Because, all that is in the world—the coveting of the flesh, the coveting of the eyes, and the vain grandeur of life—is not of the Father, but is, of the world; 17 And, the world, passeth away, and the coveting [thereof], but, he that doeth the will of God, endureth unto times age-abiding. 18 Little children! it is, the last hour; and, just as ye have heard that, an antichrist, is coming, even now, antichrists have become, many, whence we perceive that it is, the last hour: 19 From among us, they went out, but they were not of us; for, if, of us, they had been, they would in that case have abode with us; but [it came to pass] in order that they might be made manifest, because, all, are not of us. 20 And, ye, have, an anointing, from the Holy One,—Ye all, know: 21 I have not written unto you because ye know not the truth, but because ye know it, and because, no falsehood, is, of the truth. 22 Who, is the False One;—save he that denieth that, Jesus, is the Christ? The same, is the Antichrist,—he that denieth the Father and the Son. 23 Whosoever denieth the Son, neither hath he, the Father: He that confesseth the Son, hath, the Father also. 24 As for you, what ye have heard from the beginning, in you, let it abide. If, in you, shall abide, that which, from the beginning, ye have heard, ye also, in the Son, and [in] the Father, shall abide. 25 And, this, is the promise, which he hath promised unto us,—The age-abiding life. 26 These things, have I written unto you, concerning them who would lead you astray. 27 And, as for you, the anointing which ye have received from him, abideth in you, and ye have, no need, that anyone be teaching you; but, as, his anointing, is teaching you, and is, true, and is no falsehood, even just as it hath taught you, abide ye in him. 28 And, now, dear children, abide ye in him, in order that, if he be made manifest, we may have boldness, and not be shamed away from him by his presence. 29 If ye know that he is, righteous, ye perceive that—whosoever doeth righteousness, of him, hath been born.

Philippians 4:8

8 For the rest, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are dignified, whatsoever things are righteous, whatsoever things are chaste, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report,—if there be any virtue, and if any praise, the same, be taking into account;

2 Chronicles 7:14

14 if my people upon whom my Name is called shall humble themselves, and pray and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways, then will, I myself, hear out of the heavens, and forgive their sin, and heal their land.

Ecclesiastes 5:2

2 Be not rash with thy mouth, and, with thy heart, be not in haste to bring forth a word, before God,—for, God, is in the heavens, and, thou, upon the earth, for this cause, let thy words be few.

Proverbs 6:24-25

24 To keep thee from the wicked woman, from the flattery of the tongue of her that is a stranger. 25 Do not covet her beauty, in thy heart, neither let her take thee, by her eyelashes;

Titus 2:11-12

11 For the favour of God, bringing salvation for all men, hath shone forth, 12 Putting us under discipline—in order that,—denying ourselves of ungodliness and worldly covetings, in a soberminded and righteous and godly manner, we should live, in the present age,

Matthew 5:28

28 But, I, say unto you, that, Every one who looketh on a woman so as to covet her, already, hath committed adultery with her, in his heart.
