Do not lust in your heart after her beauty or let her captivate you with her eyes.
King James Bible
Lust not after her beauty in thine heart; neither let her take thee with her eyelids.
American Standard Version
Lust not after her beauty in thy heart; Neither let her take thee with her eyelids.
Young's Literal Translation
Desire not her beauty in thy heart, And let her not take thee with her eyelids.
Proverbs 6:25 Additional TranslationsClarke's Commentary on the Bible
Neither let her take thee with her eye-lids - It is a very general custom in the East to paint the eye-lids. I have many Asiatic drawings in which this is expressed. They have a method of polishing the eyes with a preparation of antimony, so that they appear with an indescribable lustre; or, as one who mentions the fact from observation, "Their eyes appear to be swimming in bliss."
