Ecclesiastes 7:26 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

Critique of Advice on Women. 26 More bitter than death I find the woman[a] who is a hunter’s trap, whose heart is a snare, whose hands are prison bonds. The one who pleases God will be delivered from her, but the one who displeases will be entrapped by her.

Footnotes:

  1. 7:26 More bitter than death…the woman: warnings against the scheming, adulterous woman are common in ancient wisdom (e.g., Prv 2:16–19, etc.).
