Keep your father’s commandment my son and do not reject your mother’s teaching. Always bind them to your heart. Tie them around your neck.
When you walk here and there they will guide you. When you lie down they will watch over you. When you wake up they will talk to you, for a command is a lamp and teaching is a light and corrective discipline is the way to life.
They will keep you from an evil woman, from the flattering tongue of a forbidden woman.
Don’t lust after her beauty in your heart, nor let her captivate you with her eyelashes, for a prostitute’s fee is only a loaf of bread, but the adulteress goes after the precious soul.
Can a man take fire in his bosom and his clothes not be burned?
Can one go upon hot coals and his feet not be burned?
So is he that goes into his neighbor’s wife. Whoever touches her shall not go unpunished.
