"For the lips of an immoral woman drip honey,
And her mouth is smoother than oil;
4 But in the end she is bitter as wormwood,
Sharp as a two-edged sword.
5 Her feet go down to death,Her steps lay hold of hell." - Proverbs 5:3-5
He tells the young men that chasing after pleasures (he uses women as an example in this passage as often it was just the men who were taught in religious schools) is going to end up being a bitter experience.
In fact, if we look at these verses again we will see that the words he chooses bring this great contrast to light:
Honey (sweet to taste) versus Wormwood (which is a bitter herb)
Smooth versus Sharp
These wise words are here to teach all of us that in pursuing things that 'look good', we may fall into a trap of disappointment and hurt in the long run.
"Educating the mind, without educating the heart is no wisdom at all." - Aristotle
