Proverbs 9:17-18 Stolen water is sweet; food eaten in secret is delicious! 18 But little do they know that the dead are there, that her guest are in the depths of the grave.

Forbidden delights sometimes seem sweeter and more pleasant because of their risk and danger.

“Stolen waters” here is speaking of a man having an affair with a harlot. This is not his wife. Adultery, as we have said before, leads to hell and destruction. The flattering words of folly lead to death.

It is interesting that wisdom offered meat and wine to her guests and the foolish offers bread and water. It seems that the world wants only the forbidden fruit. But just as it led Adam and Eve to destruction, so will it bring the foolish down. Death and hell await the foolish that reject God.
