One of the things that is apparent in the School of Wisdom study (you can find the podcasts here) is that the Strange Woman is an enemy of wisdom and a danger to the soul of men. I’ve attempted to put together a list of descriptive phrases given to us in the material. This list only goes up through chapter six. (I’ll update this as we progress through the material.)
If you haven’t started the study yet you can jump in at any point. If you don’t want to work through all thirty-one chapters but are interested in just one chapter or a passage in a particular chapter, that’s fine too. The material is modular enough to act as a commentary in that way.
Look back through the blog entries and search for the outlines for each chapter or for the chapter you are interested in. Of course, I would recommend studying Proverbs from beginning to end since it is written to be studied in that way.

I have complied these without including the verse numbers so that the raw phrases would be easily seen. (If you want to know the verse designations that sounds like a good reason to search these chapters of Proverbs for yourself.) I have also left out the warnings and the results of NOT listening and attending to the commandments concerning the Strange Woman.
- which flattereth with her words;
- Which forsaketh the guide of her youth, and
- forgetteth the covenant of her God.
- For her house inclineth unto death, and her paths unto the dead.
- For the lips of a strange woman drop as an honeycomb,
- and her mouth is smoother than oil:
- But her end is bitter as wormwood,
- sharp as a twoedged sword.
- Her feet go down to death;
- her steps take hold on hell.
- her ways are moveable, that thou canst not know them.
- from the flattery of the tongue of a strange woman.
- Lust not after her beauty in thine heart;
- neither let her take thee with her eyelids.
- and the adulteress will hunt for the precious life.
