“As the climbing vp a sandie way is to the feete of the aged, so is a wife full of words to a quiet man.”
King James Version (KJV)
17. The wickednesse of a woman changeth her face, and darkeneth her countenance like sackecloth. 18. Her husband shall sit among his neighbours: and when hee heareth it, shall sigh bitterly. 19. All wickednesse is but little to the wickednesse of a woman: let the portion of a sinner fall vpon her. 20. As the climbing vp a sandie way is to the feete of the aged, so is a wife full of words to a quiet man. 21. Stumble not at the beautie of a woman, and desire her not for pleasure. 22. A woman, if shee maintaine her husband, is full of anger, impudencie, and much reproch. 23. A wicked woman abateth the courage, maketh a heauie countenance, and a wounded heart: a woman that will not comfort her husband in distresse maketh weake hands, and feeble knees.
