20As the climbing up a sandy way is to the feet of the aged, so is a wife full of words to a quiet man. 21Stumble not at the beauty of a woman, and desire her not for pleasure. 22A woman, if she maintain her husband, is full of anger, impudence, and much reproach. 23A wicked woman abateth the courage, maketh an heavy countenance and a wounded heart: a woman that will not comfort her husband in distress maketh weak hands and feeble knees.24Of the woman came the beginning of sin, and through her we all die. 25Give the water no passage; neither a wicked woman liberty to gad abroad. 26If she go not as thou wouldest have her, cut her off from thy flesh, and give her a bill of divorce, and let her go.
A wicked woman abateth the courage, maketh a heauie countenance, and a wounded heart: a woman that will not comfort her husband in distresse maketh weake hands, and feeble knees. - King James Version (1611) - View 1611 Bible Scan
