Like a bandit she lies in wait and multiplies the unfaithful among men.
King James Bible
She also lieth in wait as for a prey, and increaseth the transgressors among men.
American Standard Version
Yea, she lieth in wait as a robber, And increaseth the treacherous among men.
Young's Literal Translation
She also, as catching prey, lieth in wait, And the treacherous among men she increaseth.
Proverbs 23:28 Additional TranslationsClarke's Commentary on the Bible
Increaseth the transgressors among men - More iniquity springs from this one source of evil, than from any other cause in the whole system of sin. Women and strong drink cause many millions to transgress.
