Do you not know that he who unites himself with a prostitute is one with her in body? For it is said, "The two will become one flesh." But he who unites himself with the Lord is one with the spirit. (1 Corinthians 6:16-17)

Do not let your heart turn to her ways or stray
into her paths. Many are the victims she has brought down; her slain are
a mighty throng.

For a prostitute is a deep pit and a wayward wife is a narrow well. (Proverbs 23:27)
A man who loves wisdom brings joy to his father,
but a companion of prostitutes squanders his wealth.
Has no one condemned you? "No one, sir," she said. Then neither do I condemn you, Jesus declared, Go now and leave your life of sin. (John 8:10-11)
