Sirach 9:9
Don’t ever sit with a married woman, and don’t share meals or indulge in wine with her, since your soul might be attracted to her and you might slip into destruction because of your passion.
For many have perished by the beauty of a woman, and hereby lust is enkindled as a fire.
Don't sit down to eat with another man's wife or join her for a drink. You may give in to the temptation of her charms and be destroyed by your passion.
Never recline at table with a married woman, or drink intoxicants with her, Lest your heart be drawn to her and you go down in blood to the grave.
Never dine with another man’s wife, or revel with her at wine; or your heart may turn aside to her, and in blood you may be plunged into destruction.

Sit thou not in any manner with an alien woman, neither rest thou with her on a bed; and jangle thou not with her in wine, lest peradventure thine heart bow into her, and thou fall into perdition by thy blood. [With an alien woman utterly sit thou not, nor lie thou with her upon the arm; and strive thou not with her in wine, lest peradventure she bow down thine heart into her, and by thy blood thou slide into perdition.]
