Adultery: Life Time’s Price of Punishment — Proverbs 6 #3

Warning Against Adultery

Proverbs 6:20-26

20 My son, keep your father’s command
    and do not forsake your mother’s teaching.
21 Bind them always on your heart;
    fasten them around your neck.
22 When you walk, they will guide you;
    when you sleep, they will watch over you;
    when you awake, they will speak to you.
23 For this command is a lamp,
    this teaching is a light,
and correction and instruction
    are the way to life,
24 keeping you from your neighbor’s wife,
    from the smooth talk of a wayward woman.

25 Do not lust in your heart after her beauty
    or let her captivate you with her eyes.

26 For a prostitute can be had for a loaf of bread,
    but another man’s wife preys on your very life.

Awake. Stop Sleeping! Start Learning Wisdom of Ants — Proverbs 6 #2

Take a lesson from the ants, you lazybones.

    Learn from their ways and become wise!

Though they have no prince

    or governor or ruler to make them work,

they labor hard all summer,

    gathering food for the winter.

But you, lazybones, how long will you sleep?

    When will you wake up?

10 A little extra sleep, a little more slumber,

    a little folding of the hands to rest—

11 then poverty will pounce on you like a bandit;

    scarcity will attack you like an armed robber

Proverbs 6:6-11

Escape Debt Trap: Sin! Proverbs 6 #1

Warnings Against Folly

1My son, if you have put up security for your neighbor,

if you have shaken hands in pledge for a stranger,

2you have been trapped by what you said,

ensnared by the words of your mouth.

3So do this, my son, to free yourself,

since you have fallen into your neighbor’s hands:

Go—to the point of exhaustion— a

and give your neighbor no rest!

4Allow no sleep to your eyes,

no slumber to your eyelids.

5Free yourself, like a gazelle from the hand of the hunter,

like a bird from the snare of the fowler.

Proverbs 6:1-5
1 Corinthians 10:13

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.

Prostitute of Proverbs: Pay Attention to Parents’ Wisdom — Proverbs 5 #2

King Solomon in all his human wisdom fell for idolatrous adulteresses, and thereby failed the Kingdom went astray from God’s grace

Proverbs 5

Warning Against Adultery

1My son, pay attention to my wisdom,

turn your ear to my words of insight,

2that you may maintain discretion

and your lips may preserve knowledge.

3For the lips of the adulterous woman drip honey,

and her speech is smoother than oil;

4but in the end she is bitter as gall,

sharp as a double-edged sword.

5Her feet go down to death;

her steps lead straight to the grave.

6She gives no thought to the way of life;

her paths wander aimlessly, but she does not know it.

7Now then, my sons, listen to me;

do not turn aside from what I say.



15Drink water from your own cistern,

running water from your own well.

16Should your springs overflow in the streets,

your streams of water in the public squares?

17Let them be yours alone,

never to be shared with strangers.
.
18May your fountain be blessed,

and may you rejoice in the wife of your youth.

19A loving doe, a graceful deer—

may her breasts satisfy you always,

may you ever be intoxicated with her love.

21For your ways are in full view of the Lord,

and he examines all your paths.

22The evil deeds of the wicked ensnare them;

the cords of their sins hold them fast.

23For lack of discipline they will die,

led astray by their own great folly.

Proverbs 5:1-8, 15-23

The Parable of the Two Sons

28“What do you think? There was a man who had two sons. He went to the first and said, ‘Son, go and work today in the vineyard.’

29“ ‘I will not,’ he answered, but later he changed his mind and went.

30“Then the father went to the other son and said the same thing. He answered, ‘I will, sir,’ but he did not go.

31“Which of the two did what his father wanted?”

“The first,” they answered.

Jesus said to them, “Truly I tell you, the tax collectors and the prostitutes are entering the kingdom of God ahead of you.

32For John came to you to show you the way of righteousness, and you did not believe him, but the tax collectors and the prostitutes did. And even after you saw this, you did not repent and believe him.

Matthew 21:28-32
