Strange woman

Definition

[1] Now Jephthah the Gileadite was a mighty man of valour, and he was the son of an harlot: and Gilead begat Jephthah.
 [2] And Gilead’s wife bare him sons; and his wife’s sons grew up, and they thrust out Jephthah, and said unto him, Thou shalt not inherit in our father’s house; for thou art the son of a strange woman.
(Judges 11:1-2 [KJV])

A strange woman is defined in its first occurance in the kjv. We see from the verse above that a strange woman is a harlot.

Scripture

The scripture tells us how to deal with a strange woman.

(Proverbs 5:1-23 [KJV])
 [1] My son, attend unto my wisdom, and bow thine ear to my understanding:
 [2] That thou mayest regard discretion, and that thy lips may keep knowledge.
 [3] For the lips of a strange woman drop as an honeycomb, and her mouth is smoother than oil:
 [4] But her end is bitter as wormwood, sharp as a twoedged sword.
 [5] Her feet go down to death; her steps take hold on hell.
 [6] Lest thou shouldest ponder the path of life, her ways are moveable, that thou canst not know them.
 [7] Hear me now therefore, O ye children, and depart not from the words of my mouth.
 [8] Remove thy way far from her, and come not nigh the door of her house:
 [9] Lest thou give thine honour unto others, and thy years unto the cruel:
 [10] Lest strangers be filled with thy wealth; and thy labours be in the house of a stranger;
 [11] And thou mourn at the last, when thy flesh and thy body are consumed,
 [12] And say, How have I hated instruction, and my heart despised reproof;
 [13] And have not obeyed the voice of my teachers, nor inclined mine ear to them that instructed me!
 [14] I was almost in all evil in the midst of the congregation and assembly.
 [15] Drink waters out of thine own cistern, and running waters out of thine own well.
 [16] Let thy fountains be dispersed abroad, and rivers of waters in the streets.
 [17] Let them be only thine own, and not strangers’ with thee.
 [18] Let thy fountain be blessed: and rejoice with the wife of thy youth.
 [19] Let her be as the loving hind and pleasant roe; let her breasts satisfy thee at all times; and be thou ravished always with her love.
 [20] And why wilt thou, my son, be ravished with a strange woman, and embrace the bosom of a stranger?
 [21] For the ways of man are before the eyes of the LORD, and he pondereth all his goings.
 [22] His own iniquities shall take the wicked himself, and he shall be holden with the cords of his sins.
 [23] He shall die without instruction; and in the greatness of his folly he shall go astray.

How are we to deal with a strange woman ?

We are told to remove our way far from her [8] and not come near to the door of her house. We are also told to depart from the words of her mouth [7] so it can be good to not talk to her and not take her advice.

Her ways are moveable, that thou canst not know them [6] so don't try to understand her just stop focusing on her and stop talking to her.

Since Mystery Babylon is the mother of harlots the way to deal with a strange woman could also apply to Mystery Babylon.
