Proverbs 7:1-5

More danger!

7:1In chapters 7-9, Solomon teaches his final lesson to his son. The lesson has three parts.

1 My child, remember what I say. Keep my commands in your mind.

2 Obey my commands, so that you live well. Keep my teaching safe. It is as valuable as your own eyes. 3 Keep it always in front of you. Think about my message all the time, as if you have written it on your heart.

4 Love wisdom in the same way that you love your sister. Be very careful to understand what is right. 5 If you do that, it will keep you safe from sin. You will not agree to sleep with an adulteress or a prostitute when she speaks sweet words to you.
