Do not let your heart turn aside to her ways,
Do not stray into her paths;
For she has cast down many wounded,
And all who were slain by her were strong men.
Her house is the way to hell,
Descending to the chambers of death.
Obviously, this chapter deals with the topic of adultery, and that it’s a trap that leads the unwary to sudden death. It also paints a picture of foolishness, which leads to destruction.
Jesus told us that He came that we would have life – not just ok life, but have it more abundantly (John 10:10). This chapter tells us that foolishness leads to death, but that passionate pursuit of wisdom keeps us safe.
