2:13For this cause also thank we God without ceasing, because, when ye received the word of God which ye heard of us, ye received it not as the word of men, but as it is in truth, the word of God, which effectually worketh also in you that believe. 2:14For ye, brethren, became followers of the churches of God which in Judaea are in Christ Jesus: for ye also have suffered like things of your own countrymen, even as they have of the Jews: 2:15Who both killed the Lord Jesus, and their own prophets, and have persecuted us; and they please not God, and are contrary to all men: 2:16Forbidding us to speak to the Gentiles that they might be saved, to fill up their sins alway: for the wrath is come upon them to the uttermost.
2:17But we, brethren, being taken from you for a short time in presence, not in heart, endeavoured the more abundantly to see your face with great desire. 2:18Wherefore we would have come unto you, even I Paul, once and again; but Satan hindered us. 2:19For what is our hope, or joy, or crown of rejoicing? Are not even ye in the presence of our Lord Jesus Christ at his coming? 2:20For ye are our glory and joy.

7:1My son, keep my words, and lay up my commandments with thee. 7:2Keep my commandments, and live; and my law as the apple of thine eye. 7:3Bind them upon thy fingers, write them upon the table of thine heart. 7:4Say unto wisdom, Thou art my sister; and call understanding thy kinswoman: 7:5That they may keep thee from the strange woman, from the stranger which flattereth with her words.
7:6For at the window of my house I looked through my casement, 7:7And beheld among the simple ones, I discerned among the youths, a young man void of understanding, 7:8Passing through the street near her corner; and he went the way to her house, 7:9In the twilight, in the evening, in the black and dark night: 7:10And, behold, there met him a womanwith the attire of an harlot, and subtil of heart. 7:11(She is loud and stubborn; her feet abide not in her house: 7:12Now is she without, now in the streets, and lieth in wait at every corner.)7:13So she caught him, and kissed him, and with an impudent face said unto him, 7:14I have peace offerings with me; this day have I payed my vows. 7:15Therefore came I forth to meet thee, diligently to seek thy face, and I have found thee. 7:16I have decked my bed with coverings of tapestry, with carved works, with fine linen of Egypt.7:17I have perfumed my bed with myrrh, aloes, and cinnamon. 7:18Come, let us take our fill of love until the morning: let us solace ourselves with loves. 7:19For the goodmanis not at home, he is gone a long journey: 7:20He hath taken a bag of money with him, and will come home at the day appointed. 7:21With her much fair speech she caused him to yield, with the flattering of her lips she forced him. 7:22He goeth after her straightway, as an ox goeth to the slaughter, or as a fool to the correction of the stocks; 7:23Till a dart strike through his liver; as a bird hasteth to the snare, and knoweth not that it is for his life.
7:24Hearken unto me now therefore, O ye children, and attend to the words of my mouth. 7:25Let not thine heart decline to her ways, go not astray in her paths. 7:26For she hath cast down many wounded: yea, many strong men have been slain by her. 7:27Her house is the way to hell, going down to the chambers of death.
