To deliver thee from the strange woman, even from the stranger which flattereth with her words; Which forsaketh the guide of her youth, and forgetteth the covenant of her God. For her house inclineth unto death, and her paths unto the dead. None that go unto her return again, neither take they hold of the paths of life.
Wisdom saves not only from the company of evil individuals but also from the clutches of the immoral woman. She is unfaithful to the companion of her youth, which could refer to her husband, and she forgets the covenant of her God, which could refer to the marriage vows that she made before God. Due to neglect of doing right, her house leads down to death, as it will be impossible to escape from her.
