Proverbs 23:26-28 World English Bible (WEB)

26 My son, give me your heart;
    and let your eyes keep in my ways.
27 For a prostitute is a deep pit;
    and a wayward wife is a narrow well.
28 Yes, she lies in wait like a robber,
    and increases the unfaithful among men.

26 Give me your heart, my son,
And let your eyes [a]delight in my ways.
27 For a harlot is a deep pit
And an [b]adulterous woman is a narrow well.
28 Surely she lurks as a robber,
And increases the [c]faithless among men.
