New International Version
16 Wisdom will save you also from the adulterous woman,(A)
from the wayward woman with her seductive words,
17 who has left the partner of her youth
and ignored the covenant she made before God.[a](B)
18 Surely her house leads down to death
and her paths to the spirits of the dead.(C)
19 None who go to her return
or attain the paths of life.(D)
- Proverbs 2:17 Or covenant of her God
King James Version
16 To deliver thee from the strange woman, even from the stranger which flattereth with her words;
17 Which forsaketh the guide of her youth, and forgetteth the covenant of her God.
18 For her house inclineth unto death, and her paths unto the dead.
19 None that go unto her return again, neither take they hold of the paths of life.Read full chapter
