    from (B)the adulteress[b] with (C)her smooth words,
17 who forsakes (D)the companion of her youth
    and forgets (E)the covenant of her God;
18 (F)for her house sinks down to death,
    and her paths to the departed;[c]
19 none who go to her come back,
    nor do they regain the paths of life.
