Passing through the street near her corner; and he went the way to her house,
In the twilight, in the evening, in the black and dark night:
And, behold, there met him a woman with
the attire of an harlot, and subtil of heart.
loud and stubborn; her feet abide not in her house:

without, now in the streets, and lieth in wait at every corner.)
