View Proverbs 7 in the note window.

An exhortation to cleave to wisdom, as a preservative from strange women, ver. 1 - 5. The snares they lay for unwary young men, ver. 6 - 23. A serious caution against coming near them, ver. 24 - 37.

2: Live - Thou shalt live. Eye - With all possible care and diligence.

3: Bind them - As a ring which is continually in a man's eye.

4: And call - Acquaint and delight thyself with her.

8: Passing - Idle and careless, near the corner of the street in which her house stood.

12: Without - Without the door of her house. Corner - Of the streets, where she might either conceal or discover herself, as she saw fit.

14: Offerings - I have paid my peace - offerings which I had vowed. Whereby she signifies, that she had plentiful provisions at her house for his entertainment. For the peace - offerings were to be of the best flesh, (Le 22:21), and a considerable part of these offerings fell to the offerer's share.

20: Hath taken - Which is an evidence that he designs to stay a considerable time. At the day - So that we need not fear any surprise.

22: As an ox - Going to it securely, as if it were going to a good pasture.

23: His liver - His vital parts, 'till his life be lost.
