The foolish woman is restless and noisy;
She is naive and easily misled and thoughtless, and knows nothing at all [of eternal value].
She sits at the doorway of her house,
On a seat by the high and conspicuous places of the city,
Calling to those who pass by,
Who are making their paths straight:
“Whoever is naive or inexperienced, let him turn in here!”
And to him who lacks understanding (common sense), she says,
“Stolen waters (pleasures) are sweet [because they are forbidden];
And bread eaten in secret is pleasant.”
But he does not know that the spirits of the dead are there,
And that her guests are [already] in the depths of Sheol (the nether world, the place of the dead).
