Adultery: Penalty of Prostitution is Destruction — Proverbs 6 #5

Proverbs 6:27-35 New Living Translation (NLT)

Lessons for Daily Life

27 Can a man scoop a flame into his lap
    and not have his clothes catch on fire?
28 Can he walk on hot coals
    and not blister his feet?
29 So it is with the man who sleeps with another man’s wife.
    He who embraces her will not go unpunished.

30 Excuses might be found for a thief
    who steals because he is starving.
31 But if he is caught, he must pay back seven times what he stole,
    even if he has to sell everything in his house.

32 But the man who commits adultery is an utter fool,

    for he destroys himself.

33 He will be wounded and disgraced.

    His shame will never be erased.

34 For the woman’s jealous husband will be furious,

    and he will show no mercy when he takes revenge.

35 He will accept no compensation,

    nor be satisfied with a payoff of any size.

She has prepared her meat and mixed her wine;
she has also set her table.
She has sent out her servants, and she calls
from the highest point of the city,
    “Let all who are simple come to my house!”
To those who have no sense she says,
    “Come, eat my food
and drink the wine I have mixed.

9.6 9.6

Leave your simple ways and you will live;
walk in the way of insight.”

Whoever corrects a mocker invites insults;
whoever rebukes the wicked incurs abuse.
Do not rebuke mockers or they will hate you;
rebuke the wise and they will love you.

Instruct the wise and they will be wiser still;

The Little Children and Jesus

13 Then people brought little children to Jesus for him to place his hands on them and pray for them. But the disciples rebuked them.

14 Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.” 15 When he had placed his hands on them, he went on from there.
