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.
