Do Not Lust For A Prostitute – Proverbs 6:25-26

Do not lust in your heart after her beauty
Proverbs 6:25-26

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

but another man’s wife preys on your very life.

PCDC Commentary

The prostitute captures your eyes and your heart.
While she is affordable, she endangers your life.

Parental Teachings Prevent Adultery
Proverbs 6:20-24

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.

PCDC Commentary

Your father’s command and your mother’s teaching
will keep you from the smooth talk of a wayward woman.

Body Parts Of A Villain 6:12-15

Body Parts Of A Villain
Proverbs 6:12-15

A troublemaker and a villain,
who goes about with a corrupt mouth,
who winks maliciously with his eye,
signals with his feet
and motions with his fingers,
who plots evil with deceit in his heart —
he always stirs up conflict.
Therefore disaster will overtake him in an instant;
he will suddenly be destroyed — without remedy.

PCdc Commentary

The Body Parts Of A Villain:
A corrupt mouth
A maliciously winking eye
Signalling feet
Motioning fingers
A deceitful heart that plots evil

He will be instantly destroyed without remedy.

A Little Folding Of The Hands To Rest 6:9-11

A Little Folding Of The Hands To Rest
Proverbs 6:9-11

How long will you lie there, you sluggard?
When will you get up from your sleep?
A little sleep, a little slumber,
a little folding of the hands to rest,
and poverty will come on you like a thief
and scarcity like an armed man.

PCdc Commentary

A Little Folding Of The Hands To Rest;
Solomon really knows how to turn a phrase.

Hey, Sluggard!
Get to work or live in the poverty you deserve.
