Proverbs 9:13–18

On a seat mby the highest places of the city,

15 To call to those who pass by,

Who go straight on their way:

16 “Whoever nis 3simple, let him turn in here”;

And as for him who lacks understanding, she says to him,

17 “Stolen owater is sweet,

And bread eaten in secret is pleasant.”

18 But he does not know that pthe dead are there,

That her guests are in the depths of 4hell.
