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.

God Gives a King’s Heart: Eternal Life — Psalm 21 #2

Psalm 21

1 How the king rejoices in your strength, O LORD!
He shouts with joy because you give him victory.
2 For you have given him his heart’s desire;
you have withheld nothing he requested.

He asked you to preserve his life,

and you granted his request.

The days of his life stretch on forever.

Psalm 21:4

Hear My Heart’s Plea and Prayer, O LORD, Psalm 17 #1

Hear My Righteous Plea

13 Arise, O LORD, confront them! Bring them to their knees; deliver me from the wicked by Your sword,

14 from such men, O LORD, by Your hand, from men of the world whose portion is in this life.

You fill their bellies with Your treasure and satisfy their sons; so they leave their abundance to their children.

Psalm 17:13-14
