Flee
Genesis 39:12-18
12
She grabbed him by his garment and said, "Sleep with me!" But leaving his garment in her hand, he escaped and ran outside.
13
When she realized that he had left his garment with her and had run outside,
14
she called the household servants. "Look," she said to them, "my husband brought a Hebrew man to us to make fun of us. He came to me so he could sleep with me, and I screamed as loud as I could.
15
When he heard me screaming for help, he left his garment with me and ran outside."
16
She put Joseph's garment beside her until his master came home.
17
Then she told him the same story: "The Hebrew slave you brought to us came to me to make fun of me,
18
but when I screamed for help, he left his garment with me and ran outside."
Proverbs 2:16-19
16
It will rescue you from a forbidden woman, from a stranger with her flattering talk,
17
who abandons the companion of her youth and forgets the covenant of her God;
18
for her house sinks down to death and her ways to the land of the departed spirits.
19
None return who go to her; none reach the paths of life.
Proverbs 5:3-15
3
Though the lips of the forbidden woman drip honey and her words are smoother than oil,
4
in the end she's as bitter as wormwood and as sharp as a double-edged sword.
5
Her feet go down to death; her steps head straight for Sheol.
6
She doesn't consider the path of life; she doesn't know that her ways are unstable.
7
So now, [my] sons, listen to me, and don't turn away from the words of my mouth.
8
Keep your way far from her. Don't go near the door of her house.
9
Otherwise, you will give up your vitality to others and your years to someone cruel;
10
strangers will drain your resources, and your earnings will end up in a foreigner's house.
11
At the end of your life, you will lament when your physical body has been consumed,
12
and you will say, "How I hated discipline, and how my heart despised correction.
13
I didn't obey my teachers or listen closely to my mentors.
14
I was on the verge of complete ruin before the entire community."
15
Drink water from your own cistern, water flowing from your own well.
Proverbs 6:24-32
24
They will protect you from an evil woman, from the flattering tongue of a stranger.
25
Don't lust in your heart for her beauty or let her captivate you with her eyelashes.
26
For a prostitute's fee is only a loaf of bread, but an adulteress goes after [your] very life.
27
Can a man embrace fire and his clothes not be burned?
28
Can a man walk on coals without scorching his feet?
29
So it is with the one who sleeps with another man's wife; no one who touches her will go unpunished.
30
People don't despise the thief if he steals to satisfy himself when he is hungry.
31
Still, if caught, he must pay seven times as much; he must give up all the wealth in his house.
32
The one who commits adultery lacks sense; whoever does so destroys himself.
Proverbs 7:5-23
5
She will keep you from a forbidden woman, a stranger with her flattering talk.
6
At the window of my house I looked through my lattice.
7
I saw among the inexperienced, I noticed among the youths, a young man lacking sense.
8
Crossing the street near her corner, he strolled down the road to her house
9
at twilight, in the evening, in the dark of the night.
10
A woman came to meet him, dressed like a prostitute, having a hidden agenda.
11
She is loud and defiant; her feet do not stay at home.
12
Now in the street, now in the squares, she lurks at every corner.
13
She grabs him and kisses him; she brazenly says to him,
14
"I've made fellowship offerings; today I've fulfilled my vows.
15
So I came out to meet you, to search for you, and I've found you.
16
I've spread coverings on my bed-- richly colored linen from Egypt.
17
I've perfumed my bed with myrrh, aloes, and cinnamon.
18
Come, let's drink deeply of lovemaking until morning. Let's feast on each other's love!
19
My husband isn't home; he went on a long journey.
20
He took a bag of money with him and will come home at the time of the full moon."
21
She seduces him with her persistent pleading; she lures with her flattering talk.
22
He follows her impulsively like an ox going to the slaughter, like a deer bounding toward a trap
23
until an arrow pierces its liver, like a bird darting into a snare-- he doesn't know it will cost him his life.
Proverbs 7:24-27
24
Now, [my] sons, listen to me, and pay attention to the words of my mouth.
25
Don't let your heart turn aside to her ways; don't stray onto her paths.
26
For she has brought many down to death; her victims are countless.
27
Her house is the road to Sheol, descending to the chambers of death.
Proverbs 9:16-18
16
"Whoever is inexperienced, enter here!" To the one who lacks sense, she says,
17
"Stolen water is sweet, and bread [eaten] secretly is tasty!"
18
But he doesn't know that the departed spirits are there, that her guests are in the depths of Sheol.
Romans 6:12
Therefore do not let sin reign in your mortal body, so that you obey its desires.
Romans 6:13
And do not offer any parts of it to sin as weapons for unrighteousness. But as those who are alive from the dead, offer yourselves to God, and all the parts of yourselves to God as weapons for righteousness.
2 Timothy 2:22
Flee from youthful passions, and pursue righteousness, faith, love, and peace, along with those who call on the Lord from a pure heart.
Hebrews 13:4
Marriage must be respected by all, and the marriage bed kept undefiled, because God will judge immoral people and adulterers.
1 Peter 2:11
Dear friends, I urge you as aliens and temporary residents to abstain from fleshly desires that war against you.
sinneth
Romans 1:24
Therefore God delivered them over in the cravings of their hearts to sexual impurity, so that their bodies were degraded among themselves.
1 Thessalonians 4:5
not with lustful desires, like the Gentiles who don't know God.
