5:3-6 For the lips of a strange woman drop as an honeycomb.(a
honeycomb has many chambers and this analogy to a strange woman's words
shows she has many tricks in mind she can use against you).and
her mouth is smoother than oil. But her end is bitter as wormwood, sharp
as a two edged sword. Her feet go down to death; her steps take hold on
hell. Lest thou shouldest ponder the path of life, her ways are moveable,
that thou canst not know them.
5:7 Hear me now therefore, O you children and depart not from the words
of my mouth..(listen
to learn and live)
5:8-10 Remove your way far from her and come not nigh the door of her
house, lest you give your honour unto others and your years unto the cruel,
lest strangers be filled with your wealth.(similar
to what happened to Samson by the evil
Delilah).and your labours be
in the house of a stranger;
and learn from life so you won't end up with your life having been a waste).And
you mourn at the last, when your flesh and your body are consumed, And
say, How have I hated instruction and my heart despised reproof; And have
not obeyed the voice of my teachers, nor inclined mine ear to them that
live your life by putting yourself in a position where you later wonder
how on Earth did you become like that.

the congregation and assembly.

almost every time we got together'.
5:15 Drink waters out of your own cistern and running waters out of
your own well.
5:19 Let her be as the loving hind and pleasant roe. Let her breasts
satisfy you at all times and be you ravished always with her love.
5:20 And why will you, my son, be ravished with a strange woman and
embrace the bosom of a stranger?
5:21 For the ways of man are before the eyes of the Lord.(God
44:21).and he ponders
all his goings.
5:22.23 His own iniquities shall take the wicked himself and he shall
be held bythe cords of his sins. He shall die without instruction and in
the greatness of his folly he shall go astray.
6:1-3 My son, if you be surety
for your friend or if you have stricken your hand with a stranger, You
art snared with the words of your mouth, you are taken with the words of
your mouth. Do this now, my son and deliver thyself, when you are come
into the hand of your friend; go, humble yourself and make sure your friend.(reestablish
6:4,5 Give not sleep to your eyes, nor slumber to thine eyelids, until
you deliver yourself as a roe from the hand of the hunter and as a bird
from the hand of the fowler.
6:6 Go to the ant, you sluggard;
consider her ways and be wise.
6:7-11 Which having no guide, overseer or ruler, Provideth her meat
in the summer and gathereth her food in the harvest. How long wilt thou
sleep, O sluggard? when will you arise out of thy sleep? Yet a little sleep,
a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to sleep and then so shall
your poverty come as one that travels.(comprised
Notes: keeps going here and there for no other purpose than to
do it or one who travels around to rob others).and
your want as an armed man.(comprised
Notes: carries a weapon to rob others for gain, but will end up
6:12-15 A naughty person, a wicked man, walks with a froward
mouth. He winks with his eyes, he speaks with his feet, he teaches with
his body language; is his body do you think, in
sync with his heart or betraying
it? watch what he or she is doing); Frowardness
is in his heart. He devises mischief
out ways to take advantage of you). He sows discord.(and
always for some selfish greedy advantage accruing
to him). Therefore shall his calamity
come suddenly. Suddenly shall he be broken without remedy.

6:16,17 These six things does the Lord hate: yea, seven are an abomination
unto him: A proud look, a lying tongue and hands that shed innocent blood,
6:18 An heart that devises wicked imaginations, feet that be swift
in running to mischief.(Proverbs
6:19 A false witness that speaks lies and he that sows discord among
comes from one who is ignorant of the
oneness of the universe.
6:23 For the commandment.(a
command is an instruction from one having authority, such as in a parent/child
relationship).is a lamp and
the law is light and reproofs of instruction are the way of life.
6:24 To keep thee from the evil woman, from the flattery of the tongue
of a strange woman.(a
woman not in rapport
with you, but keeps that hidden).
6:25 Lust not after her beauty in thine heart, neither let her take
thee with her eyelids.
6:26 For by means of a whorish woman a man is brought to a piece of
type of woman, such as Delilah was,
is out to use you for her gain and cares not for how you may end up).
And the adulteress will hunt for the precious life.
6:27-29 Can a man take fire in his bosom and his clothes not be burned?
Can one go upon hot coals and his feet not be burned? So he that goes in
to his neighbour's wife;
whosoever touches her shall not be innocent.
7:1,2 My son, keep my words and lay up my commandments with you. Keep
my commandments and live, and my law as the apple of thine eye.

7:5-10 That they may keep thee from the strange woman.(a
woman not really matched up with you, but able to get to your heart with
her charm), from the stranger which flatters with her words.
For at the window of my house I looked through my casement, And beheld
among the simple ones, I discerned among the youths, a young man void of
understanding, passing through the street near her corner and he went the
way to her house, in the twilight, in the evening, in the black and dark
night. And behold there met him a woman with the attire of an harlot and
7:11-14 She is loud and stubborn. Her feet abide not in her house.(she's
always wanting to be out and about promoting herself looking for the big
catch, the one with the money who may be easy for her to control).
Now is she without, now in the streets and lies in wait at every corner.
So she caught him and kissed him and with an impudent
face said unto him, I have peace offerings with me. This day have I payed
trying to make him think that she's a special catch she promotes
herself as a clean living religious person having had all sins covered.
7:15 Therefore came I forth to meet you, diligently to seek your face.("I've
been noticing you and I'm really attracted to you. I've been looking for
someone as good as you and now I've found you.").and
I have found you.
just the guy I've been looking for! You must be my soul mate!"
7:16-23 I have decked my bed with coverings of tapestry, with carved
works, with fine linen of Egypt. I have perfumed my bed with myrrh, aloes
and cinnamon. Come, let us take our fill of love until the morning.("I
really want you. I've been preparing for a person such as you are and now
here you are. Let's make the most of our recent meeting by loving all night").
Let us solace.(let's
lose ourselves in sex, far away from the cares of the day).ourselves
with loves. For the goodman is not at home.(she
preps him by trying to make him feel comfortable that her man is not at
home and so he would not encounter him; she couldn't hide the fact that
she had someone else, so trys to make him think that she's not to happy
with him so he'll think that he is now the one of choice),
he is gone a long journey. He has taken a bag of money with him and will
come home at the day appointed. With her much fair speech she caused him
to yield, with the flattering of her lips she forced.(drives

straightway, as an ox goes to the slaughter or as a fool to the correction
of the stocks; Till a dart strike through his liver; as a bird hastes to
the snare and knows not that it is for his life.

not wisdom cry and understanding
put forth her voice?.(inside
you is something that always wants you to come up higher in life so that
your life right now starts on the road of joy and stays that way; is there
any true reason why you should not have all the good you want?).She
stands in the top of high places by the way in the places of the paths.
She cries at the gates, at the entry of the city, at the coming in at the
doors. Unto you, O men, I call and my voice is to the sons of man. O you

strength. By me kings reign and princes decree justice. By me princes rule
and nobles, even all the judges of the earth. I love them that love me
and those that seek me early shall find me. Riches and honour are with

1:1-5). I was set
up from everlasting, from the beginning or ever the earth was. When
there were no depths I was brought forth and when there were no fountains

was I brought forth. While as yet he had not

When he prepared the heavens I was there. When he set a compass upon the
face of the depth, when he established the clouds above, when he strengthened
the fountains of the deep.
