Proverbs 7:1-5

My son, keep my words
    and store up my commands within you.
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.
Say to wisdom, “You are my sister,”
    and to insight, “You are my relative.”
They will keep you from the adulterous woman,
    from the wayward woman with her seductive words.

One response to “Proverbs 7:1-5

  1. Wisdom, and the teachings that we receive from God will protect us from the deceit and the seduction of the deceiver in the ways that he tries to pull us from our purpose in God. Adulterous women are a large concern, but they are also symbolic of the imagery that plays to our lusts to lead us into sin. Wisdom and teaching from His word will empower us to overcome and war against these temptations.
