Proverbs 6:25-29

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

26 For a prostitute can be had for a loaf of bread,
    but another man’s wife preys on your very life.
27 Can a man scoop fire into his lap
    without his clothes being burned?
28 Can a man walk on hot coals
    without his feet being scorched?
29 So is he who sleeps with another man’s wife;
    no one who touches her will go unpunished.

One response to “Proverbs 6:25-29

  1. God designed marriage and the rules that govern it. He does not allow for us to make our own plans or follow after our lusts. He is fair and merciful in telling us the rules and giving us the punishment. He plainly says that we will suffer and be punished for lusting and sleeping with another man’s wife and we can only blame ourselves when our lusts lead to ruin.
