Seduction Kills 7:21-23

Seduction Kills
Proverbs 7:21-23

With persuasive words she led him astray;
she seduced him with her smooth talk.
All at once he followed her
like an ox going to the slaughter,
like a deer stepping into a noose
till an arrow pierces his liver,
like a bird darting into a snare,
little knowing it will cost him his life.

PCdc Commentary

She seduces him with words.
He follows her like an ox to slaughter.
It costs him his life.

What Could Possibly Go Worng?
Proverbs 7:14-20

“Today I fulfilled my vows,
and I have food from my fellowship offering at home.
So I came out to meet you;
I looked for you and have found you!
I have covered my bed
with colored linens from Egypt.
I have perfumed my bed
with myrrh, aloes and cinnamon.
Come, let’s drink deeply of love till morning;
let’s enjoy ourselves with love!
My husband is not at home;
he has gone on a long journey.
He took his purse filled with money
and will not be home till full moon.”

PCdc Commentary

Well, I fulfilled my vows today,
so I have plenty of food for us.
My husband is gone until the next full moon,
and I am prepared to “enjoy ourselves with love”.

dressed like a prostitute and with crafty intent.

at every corner she lurks.)

A Youth Who Has No Sense 7:6-9

A Youth Who Has No Sense
Proverbs 7:6-9

At the window of my house
I looked down through the lattice.
I saw among the simple,
I noticed among the young men,
a youth who had no sense.
He was going down the street near her corner,
walking along in the direction of her house
at twilight, as the day was fading,
as the dark of night set in.

PCdc Commentary

Avoid the prostitute, Senseless Youth.

Obviously you are not listening because
you are going down the street near her corner.
Walking along in the direction of her house.

Someone is in for a shocking surprise.

My Family vs The Adulteress 7:1-5

My Family vs The Adulteress
Proverbs 7:1-5

My son, keep my words
and store up my commands within you.
Keep my commands and you will live;
guard my teachings as the apple of your eye.
Bind them on your fingers;
write them on the tablet of your heart.
Say to wisdom, “You are my sister,”
and to insight, “You are my relative.”
They will keep you from the adulterous woman,
from the wayward woman with her seductive words.

PCdc Commentary

Resist the seductive words of the adulteress
by embracing your sister, Wisdom
and your relative, Insight.
