Proverbs regarding adultery, cheating, extramarital affairs, fornication, infidelity, two-timing, unfaithfulness, etc.

  1. For the lips of the adulterous woman drip honey, and her seductive words are smoother than olive oil,
    but in the end she is bitter as wormwood, sharp as a two-edged sword.
    Her feet go down to death; her steps lead straight to the grave.
    Lest she should make level the path leading to life, her paths are unstable but she does not know it.
    So now, children, listen to me; do not turn aside from the words I speak.
    Keep yourself far from her, and do not go near the door of her house,
    lest you give your vigor to others and your years to a cruel person,
    lest strangers devour your strength, and your labor benefit another man's house.
    And at the end of your life you will groan when your flesh and your body are wasted away.
    And you will say, "How I hated discipline! My heart spurned reproof!
    For I did not obey my teachers and I did not heed my instructors.
    I almost came to complete ruin in the midst of the whole congregation!"
    Drink water from your own cistern and running water from your own well.
    Should your springs be dispersed outside, your streams of water in the wide plazas?
    Let them be for yourself alone, and not for strangers with you.
    May your fountain be blessed, and may you rejoice in your young wife -
    a loving doe, a graceful deer; may her breasts satisfy you at all times, may you be captivated by her love always.

    Prov. 5:3-19 (read whole chapter)

  2. But why should you be captivated, my son, by an adulteress, and embrace the bosom of a different woman?
    For the ways of a person are in front of the LORD's eyes, and the LORD weighs all that person's paths.
    The wicked will be captured by his own iniquities, and he will be held by the cords of his own sin.
    He will die because there was no discipline; because of the greatness of his folly he will reel.

    Prov. 5:20-23 (read whole chapter)

  3. For the commandments are like a lamp, instruction is like a light, and rebukes of discipline are like the road leading to life,
    by keeping you from the evil woman, from the smooth tongue of the loose woman.
    Do not lust in your heart for her beauty, and do not let her captivate you with her alluring eyes;
    for on account of a prostitute one is brought down to a loaf of bread, but the wife of another man preys on your precious life.

    Prov. 6:23-26 (read whole chapter)

  4. Can a man hold fire against his chest without burning his clothes?
    Can a man walk on hot coals without scorching his feet?
    So it is with the one who has sex with his neighbor's wife; no one who touches her will escape punishment.
    People do not despise a thief when he steals to fulfill his need when he is hungry.
    Yet if he is caught he must repay seven times over, he might even have to give all the wealth of his house.

    Prov. 6:27-31 (read whole chapter)

  5. A man who commits adultery with a woman lacks wisdom, whoever does it destroys his own life.
    He will be beaten and despised, and his reproach will not be wiped away;
    for jealousy kindles a husband's rage, and he will not show mercy when he takes revenge.
    He will not consider any compensation; he will not be willing, even if you multiply the compensation.

    Prov. 6:32-35 (read whole chapter)

  6. There are three things that are too wonderful for me, four that I do not understand:
    the way of an eagle in the sky, the way of a snake on a rock, the way of a ship in the sea, and the way of a man with a woman.
    This is the way of an adulterous woman: she eats and wipes her mouth and says, "I have not done wrong."

    Prov. 30:18-20 (read whole chapter)
