Proverbs 7:22-27, Suddenly


22Suddenly he follows her

As an ox goes to the slaughter,

Or as one in fetters to the discipline of a fool,

23Until an arrow pierces through his liver;

As a bird hastens to the snare,

So he does not know that it will cost him his life.

24Now therefore, my sons, listen to me,

And pay attention to the words of my mouth.

25Do not let your heart turn aside to her ways,

Do not stray into her paths.

26For many are the victims she has cast down,

And numerous are all her slain.

27Her house is the way to Sheol,

Descending to the chambers of death.
