Proverbs 7:2
Context
Warnings About the Adulteress

1My son, keep my words, and lay up my commandments with you. 2Keep my commandments, and live; and my law as the apple of your eye. 3Bind them on your fingers, write them on the table of your heart. 4Say to wisdom, You are my sister; and call understanding your kinswoman: 5That they may keep you from the strange woman, from the stranger which flatters with her words. 6For at the window of my house I looked through my casement, 7And beheld among the simple ones, I discerned among the youths, a young man void of understanding, 8Passing through the street near her corner; and he went the way to her house, 9In the twilight, in the evening, in the black and dark night: 10And, behold, there met him a woman with the attire of an harlot, and subtle of heart. 11(She is loud and stubborn; her feet abide not in her house: 12Now is she without, now in the streets, and lies in wait at every corner.) 13So she caught him, and kissed him, and with an impudent face said to him, 14I have peace offerings with me; this day have I paid my vows. 15Therefore came I forth to meet you, diligently to seek your face, and I have found you. 16I have decked my bed with coverings of tapestry, with carved works, with fine linen of Egypt. 17I have perfumed my bed with myrrh, aloes, and cinnamon. 18Come, let us take our fill of love until the morning: let us solace ourselves with loves. 19For the manager is not at home, he is gone a long journey: 20He has taken a bag of money with him, and will come home at the day appointed. 21With her much fair speech she caused him to yield, with the flattering of her lips she forced him. 22He goes after her straightway, as an ox goes to the slaughter, or as a fool to the correction of the stocks; 23Till a dart strike through his liver; as a bird hastens to the snare, and knows not that it is for his life. 24Listen to me now therefore, O you children, and attend to the words of my mouth. 25Let not your heart decline to her ways, go not astray in her paths. 26For she has cast down many wounded: yes, many strong men have been slain by her. 27Her house is the way to hell, going down to the chambers of death.

as the
As the pupil of the eye, the hole or the opening of the uveous coat, or iris, through which the rays of light pass, and falling upon the retina, there depict every object in its natural colour, as upon a piece of white paper. Now the pupil of the eye is essentially necessary to sight, and easily injured, it is not only, in common with other parts, deeply entrenched in the skull, ramparted with the forehead and cheek bones, defended by the eyebrows, eyelids and eyelashes and placed so as to be best protected by the hands, but, by a wonderful mechanism, is contracted or dilated by the muscular power of the iris, without which an excess of light would cause instant blindness.
