King Solomon spent an entire chapter detailing the dangers of adulterous women. Being the son of David, a man who risked so many blessings for the love of a married woman, and considering that Solomon himself was known for having a harem of women — I think we can trust that Solomon understood the potential threat of letting lust take over our decisions. So in this chapter, Solomon described a scene that so many could find familiar. One person walks down the street, and another comes along and uses all the right phrases to gain the first one’s trust. “I’ve prayed to God!” “I’ve been waiting for you.” “The timing is perfect.” “No one will every know.” But every time, these promises and golden words only lead to destruction.
Verses 2-3: “Keep my commands and you will live; guard my teachings as the apple of your eye. Bind them on your fingers; write them on the tablet of your heart.”
