Bible: Proverbs 2:16-22

2:16 to deliver you 1  from the adulteress, 2 

from the sexually loose woman 3  who speaks flattering 4  words; 5 

2:17 who leaves 6  the husband 7  from her younger days, 8 

and forgets her marriage covenant 9  made before God. 10 

2:18 For her house 11  sinks 12  down to death,

and her paths lead 13  to the place of the departed spirits. 14 

2:19 None who go in to her will return, 15 

nor will they reach the paths of life. 16 

2:20 So 17  you will walk in the way of good people, 18 

and will keep on the paths of the righteous. 19 

2:21 For the upright will reside in the land,

and those with integrity 20  will remain in it,

2:22 but the wicked 21  will be removed 22  from the land,

and the treacherous 23  will be torn away 24  from it.
