Proverbs 7 ©
Solomon recommendeth obedience to his precepts, and such a familiarity with wisdom as may prove a guard to chastity. In a recital of what had passed under his own eye he sheweth the cunning and impudence of a lewd woman, and the desperate folly of a youth seduced by her: he dissuadeth from such dangerous courses.
¶For at the window of my house I looked through my casement,
Passing through the street near her corner; and he iwent the way to her house,
4I have opeace offerings with me; this day have I payed my vows.
Therefore came I forth to meet thee, diligently to seek thy face, and I have found thee.
I have perfumed my bed with myrrh, aloes, and cinnamon.
Come, let us take our fill of love until the morning: let us solace ourselves with loves.
For the *goodman is not at home, he is gone a long journey:
He hath taken a bag of money 5with him, and will come home at 6the day appointed.
