A deep pit is the mouth of strange women, The abhorred of Jehovah falleth there.
Proverbs 22:14 Additional TranslationsClarke's Commentary on the Bible
The mouth of strange women is a deep pit - In Proverbs 23:27, he says, A whore is a Deep Ditch:, oud a strange woman is a Narrow Pit.

Virgil's hell has been adduced in illustration: -

Dis geniti potuere.
Virg. Aen, lib. vi., ver. 125.
