Loose woman (Prov 22:14-22:16)

“The mouth of a loose woman is a deep pit.

Whomever Yahweh is angry with

Will fall into it.

Folly is bound up in the heart of a child.

But the rod of discipline drives it far away.

Oppressing the poor in order to enrich oneself,

Will only lead to a loss.

Giving to the rich,

Will only lead to a loss.”

The mouth of a loose woman is like a deep pit. If Yahweh is angry with anyone, they will fall into that pit. In order to get foolishness out of child, it is better to discipline them with the rod to drive out that foolishness. If you oppress the poor to get rich, this will only lead to your own poverty. If you give to rich, you also will end up poor.
