He who plays with the deadliness of sin is like one who strolls through a den of vipers. He and one who drinks poison are the same. Both volunteer to consume a fatal toxin.
With much seductive speech she persuades him; with her smooth talk she compels him. All at once he follows her, as an ox goes to the slaughter, or as a stag is caught fast till an arrow pierces its liver; as a bird rushes into a snare; he does not know that it will cost him his life.
- Proverbs 7:21-23
