The Book of Proverbs Chapter 7 – New King James Version (NKJV) – Audio Bible

Chapter 7. My son keep my words and treasure my Commands within you Keep my commands and live and my law as The apple of your eye Find them on your fingers write them on The tablet of your heart Say to wisdom you are my sister And call understanding your nearest kin That they may keep you from the immoral Woman from the seductress who flatters With her words For out the window of my house I looked Through my lattice And saw among the simple I perceived among the youths a young man Devoid of understanding Passing along the streets near her Corner and he took the path to her house In the Twilight in the evening in the Black and dark night And there a woman met him with the Attire of a harlot and a crafty heart She was loud and rebellious her feet Would not stay at home At times she was outside at times in the Open Square lurking at every corner So she caught him and kissed him with an Impudent face she said to him I have peace offerings with me today I Have paid my vows So I came out to meet you diligently to Seek your face and I have found you I have spread my bed with tapestry

Colored coverings of Egyptian linen I have perfumed my bed with myrrh aloes And cinnamon Come let us take our fill of love until Morning Let us Delight ourselves with love For my husband is not at home He has gone on a long journey He has taken a bag of money with him and Will come home on the appointed day With her enticing speech she caused him To yield with her flattering lips she Seduced him Immediately he went after her as an ox Goes to the slaughter or as a fool to The correction of the stocks Dylan Arrow struck his liver As a bird hastens to the snare he did Not know it would cost his life Now therefore listen to me my children Pay attention to the words of my mouth Do not let your heart turn aside to her Ways Do not stray into her paths For she has cast down many wounded And all who were slain by her were Strong men Her house is the way to hell Descending to the chambers of death
