Proverbs 9:13-18 World English Bible (WEB)

13 The foolish woman is loud,
    Undisciplined, and knows nothing.
14 She sits at the door of her house,
    on a seat in the high places of the city,
15 To call to those who pass by,
    who go straight on their ways,
16 “Whoever is simple, let him turn in here.”
    as for him who is void of understanding, she says to him,
17 “Stolen water is sweet.
    Food eaten in secret is pleasant.”
18 But he doesn’t know that the departed spirits are there,
    that her guests are in the depths of Sheol.[a]

Proverbs 9:13-18 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

13 The [a]woman of folly is boisterous,
She is [b]naive and knows nothing.
14 She sits at the doorway of her house,
On a seat by the high places of the city,
15 Calling to those who pass by,
Who are making their paths straight:
16 Whoever is [c]naive, let him turn in here,”
And to him who lacks [d]understanding she says,
17 “Stolen water is sweet;
And bread eaten in secret is pleasant.”
18 But he does not know that the [e]dead are there,
That her guests are in the depths of Sheol.
