She is that seductive woman to be feared, who leads one to utter destruction, and has often been translated as the adulteress and the strange woman in Proverbs 1-9.

However, the Hebrew explicitly refers to her as a foreign woman and a strange woman . This book argues against the former translation and identifies a motif of the foreign woman within the Hebrew scripture where she originates. It also continues to trace how this motif develops after she leaves Proverbs 1-9 to the later Jewish wisdom literature.
