Proverbs 2:16-19 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)
16 Saving you from a stranger,
from a foreign woman with her smooth words,
17 One who forsakes the companion of her youth
and forgets the covenant of her God;
18 For her path sinks down to death,
and her footsteps lead to the shades.
19 None who enter there come back,
or gain the paths of life.
