Proverbs 9:15 Calling out to those who pass by, who go straight on their way

Danger ahead! Even if you are going where you should and doing what you should, an enemy that wants to take you down to death and hell may meet you on your way today. These are chance encounters of a dangerous kind, and they come in many different forms. Though you may do everything virtuously today, not everyone else is doing the same.

Young man, someone wants to meet you today. Do not be surprised, if during your day’s normal activities, an enticing woman invites you to spend intimate time with her. Are you prepared to resist her invitation? Focus your attention carefully, and commit your heart to godliness, before it is too late. You are the prey of whorish women (Pr 23:28). The more noble and virtuous you are, greater effort may be applied toward you (Pr 6:26).

Her invitation may or may not be verbal. Do you grasp this? It may not be a conversation, phone call, note, email, or text. She may call for your attention by her appearance, clothing, body language, actions, looks, or touches. She may not even be a live person, if she invites you to desire her by pictures in a magazine, in a movie, or on the Internet. She could easily be calling to men in general but catches your eye among many others.

Though you rose intending to fear God and be faithful to your sister Wisdom (Pr 7:1-5), a woman in your city wants to steal you from them both. Though you went to your God-given career by an acceptable route, she can find you. Even in noble duties to serve God and man, you will meet this woman calling to you (Pr 7:12). She will disrupt your plans and life, and unless you are very strong, she will destroy you (Pr 7:21-27; 23:27-28).

“Passengers” is not difficult: they are men passing, or going, on their way. And these passengers are not looking for her, because they are going right on their ways to their appointed stations and duties in life. But she seeks her victims from among them (Pr 9:14). Many men have been snared by a strange woman when they least expected it. It has been said that to be forewarned is to be forearmed, so Solomon warned you here.

She hunts for the precious life (Pr 6:26); base sinners and low-class men are not as appealing; you may meet her in places where wisdom is found (Pr 9:3,14). The more you are like Joseph, a noble ambition, the more she will want you (Gen 39:6-7). But she hunts for the simple, the foolish – she knows seducing a man of virtue is hard (Pr 9:16; 7:7). If you study all of Solomon’s warnings about her and sexual sins, you will be prepared.

Understand and fear the warning here. Consider that Satan does not worry about carnal Christians, for they already serve him by their compromising lives. He wants to distract or ruin men committed to godliness and Jesus Christ’s kingdom. He wants to take down good Christian young men, for the average Christian has already neutered his own power and testimony by worldly living. The more committed you are, the greater the danger.

Understand and fear the warning here. Your faithfulness and diligence to God and men does not discourage or deter her. She wants a prince. The devil encourages her to want a prince. Though you are soberly committed to godliness and virtue, she will still approach you from time to time. The advance warning of this proverb should prepare you for those events. Be a Joseph! Do not be a Samson! Be like Jesus! Do not be like David!

She may be a church member. Where would Satan desire more to cause private or public havoc? Professing Christians are not alike; they rule their lusts and lives differently. They range from the very reserved to foolish flirts. Good church members associate often, have much in common, get to know each other well, and discuss personal aspects of life. Be on guard as you go right on your way – even to worship God and serve Jesus Christ.

She is bold (Pr 7:13); she does not like domestic duties at home (Pr 7:11); she may be a fellow worker. She will use any means to get your attention, your carnal attention. She will inflame your lust of the eyes, lust of the flesh, and pride of life. She may speak of love, but it is only lust that intrigues and motivates her (Pr 7:15-18). She will invite you to forbidden pleasures (Pr 9:17), but she will not tell you of the death there (Pr 9:18).

You must learn to pray wisely, as the Lord Jesus Christ taught, “Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil” (Matt 6:13). As David taught, “Incline my heart unto thy testimonies, and not to covetousness” (Ps 119:36). Your Father in heaven can deliver you from even meeting her, or He can give you the strength to resist her, if you meet her. You ought to sing and pray the excellent song, “My Soul, Be on thy Guard.”

Do not let your heart decline to her ways, and avoid her haunts (Pr 7:25). She will find you anyway; you should not give her any extra opportunities. Keep your desires on noble and spiritual things (Col 3:2). Keep your heart with all diligence (Pr 4:23), for the destructive sin she offers cannot occur if you have not thought upon it. Remember your sister Wisdom and the impossibility of recovering virtue once given away (Pr 6:32-33).

The Lord is calling you by Lady Wisdom as well (Pr 9:1-6). If you disregard His call through her, He will allow calamities to swallow you alive (Pr 1:20-33). Remember your Lord and brother Paul, though greatly distracted by many duties and temptations; they set their hearts only toward the will of God in all things (Lu 9:51; Acts 20:22-24; Heb 4:15). You can fight a good fight, finish your course, and keep the faith as Paul did (II Tim 4:7).

Proverbs 5:6 She gives no thought to the way of life; her paths are crooked, but she knows it not. 

Son, your great enemy is adaptable. She will alter her methods in order to entice and keep you, for she cannot allow you to examine your life or consider the consequences of further dealings with her. Do you know this enemy? Do you know her tactics? Do you know how to save yourself from her? Be forewarned and live, my son (Pr 5:1)!

Solomon used many proverbs to warn men about the strange woman and how she destroys men (Pr 7:26; 23:28). A strange woman is any woman not your wife, but especially a whore; he warned his son carefully about her (Pr 5:1-5). He knew her pain himself, and experience said she was a great threat to destroy young men (Eccl 7:25-29).

He knew many of her enticements. He knew about her flattering words (Pr 6:24), her beauty (Pr 6:25), her eye contact (Pr 6:25), her kisses (Pr 7:13), her pretended character (Pr 7:14), her romantic affection (Pr 7:15), her creative lovemaking (Pr 7:16-18), and her precautions for a safe rendezvous (Pr 7:19-20). But he did not know them all.

Escape from a strange woman requires a man to soberly and unemotionally examine his life and the future results of his actions. Calm reflection will show he is hanging over the pit of hell, with bitter pain and death the certain results. All she can offer is momentary and temporary pleasure. He needs to immediately get as far away from her as possible.

A whore cannot allow you to think soberly, for it would ruin her game, so she uses all her wiles to keep you from realizing your fatal situation. She entices you unrelentingly in various ways, so that you cannot escape her draw. She uses womanly instincts, hellish training, and devilish seduction to keep you off balance and under her spell. She cannot afford to let you consider your ways. She must keep your soul a slave to her desires.

Solomon had learned the hard way that her “heart is snares and nets, and her hands as bands” (Eccl 7:26). Snares and nets are the tools of those who trap unwary animals, birds, or fish. They are disguised from view; they are often moved; and they have attractive bait attached. Whorish women are like beasts of prey, crouching, sneaking, hiding, and then pouncing on their unwary victims to their mortal destruction (Pr 23:27-28; 22:14).

Samson knew Delilah sought to destroy him, by three other events; yet he could not resist her seductive wiles, and so she destroyed a strong man (Jdgs 16:4-21; Pr 7:26). Samson’s ruin is hard to believe, so Solomon gave a clear warning in the proverb here. Tamar knew she must alter her appearance and ways to snare Judah, and they worked (Gen 38:12-19).

Whores can play hard to get – or easy to have. They might be down and dirty – or upright and noble (Pr 7:14). They can offer love – or threaten revenge. They might take you with words – or with touches. They can be mysterious – or bold. They can appear to be slipping away – or promising eternal adoration. They can pretend to be innocent and virtuous – or they can be wildly bold. They will change to chain you to them!

Young man, certain safety is only by staying far from her (Pr 5:8; 4:15; Rom 13:14). Do not deceive yourself about your ability to resist her temptation. To expose yourself to her wiles is more than you can handle. Nearly any whorish woman is too much temptation for nearly any man, so get away, now! Flee fast and far (Gen 39:12; II Tim 2:22)!

You will never escape an inviting woman unless you ponder the path of life. Do you examine yourself in the light of God’s word, where the path of life is detailed for you (Ps 139:23-24)? Do you prepare for the preaching of God’s word to convict you of any errors in your life? This exercise is essential to your safety and success in life (II Cor 13:5).

Beyond whorish women, the devil is also your enemy. He walks about seeking whom he may devour, just like a wanton woman looking for a victim (I Pet 5:8). Take the whole armor of God and stand against his enticing wiles (Eph 6:10-19). Jesus withstood the devil’s three best efforts to ruin Him by soberly applying God’s word (Matt 4:1-11).

Beyond influencing whorish women in their wicked tactics of seduction, the devil also influences false churches to change their methods to beguile unstable souls (II Pet 2:14). The chief of these churches is that in Rome, which has seduced billions of souls into her religious brothel with many abominable spiritual inventions (Rev 17:1-6).

Jesus was tempted in all points, yet without sin (Heb 2:17-18; 4:15). Being a perfect man, He experienced malicious and weak women pursuing Him (Pr 6:26), but He gloriously resisted them all. Having lived so successfully, He is a most merciful high priest for those facing such temptations. Go to Him for strength, and go to Him for forgiveness.

Proverbs 31:3 Do not spend your strength on women, your vigor on those who ruin kings. 

Whores can destroy kings, how much more average men? A queen mother appealed to her son King Lemuel as only a mother can do and warned him against a great threat to his life and reign – evil women (Pr 31:1-3). Every good mother will intensely warn her sons.

Kings, due to power and riches, were objects of seduction by whorish women. Kings, by their power and riches, lived luxuriously, which promoted lascivious living and the lusts of eyes and flesh. This great mother despised whores and warned her son against them.

Kings ruled nations, raised armies, and conquered empires. Kings are the greatest rulers in history. They made weighty decisions that affected the lives of those in and out of their kingdoms. They had absolute authority of life and death over every citizen. To influence a king was to influence nations and the lives of millions. For a king to become infatuated with a woman was to give his strength, duty, and honor to the base lusts of his loins!

How many kings have been destroyed by evil women affecting their decisions? Or would it be easier to ask how many kings have not been so affected! The threat was real; the historical record bleak; the consequences terrible. Kings, and all men in authority, must be stricter and stronger in resisting women than other men. Power is an aphrodisiac and an opportunity for the flesh. On these two counts men in leadership roles must be vigilant. They must deny the flesh to keep themselves, their offices, and their charges.

King Lemuel’s mother knew good women, for she wrote the loftiest description of the most perfect woman ever described (Pr 31:10-31). She wanted her son the king to have one woman – a virtuous, God-fearing woman – to be his wife. She did not desire a harem for him. She rejected thoughts of mistresses. She despised concubines and courtesans. She knew his success depended on one great woman as his wife. Consider it well, men!

Samson was judge of Israel, but the conniving whore Delilah brought him down to terrible destruction. David had a harem of wives, but taking the wife of one of his best friends brought him sore trouble, nearly destroyed his kingdom, and cost him dearly for the rest of his life. His son Solomon followed David’s horrible example against his own wisdom and is left in ignominy and shame in the Bible (I Kgs 11:1-11; Num 13:26).

What can be said about such foolish rulers as Julius Caesar and Marc Anthony, who were seduced and destroyed by the Egyptian whore Cleopatra? Only Augustus knew how to treat her, so she did the best thing for all concerned and committed suicide. Entire history books have been written of royal adultery and sex scandals from ancient Babylon to the Caesars and popes of Rome to Edwardian England. Women have destroyed many rulers.

What are the lessons? Great mothers warn their sons plainly about the danger of whorish women. Great men, especially in positions of authority or leadership, must take extra precautions to be vigilant against this dangerous threat. And if women can destroy gifted rulers with many options, common men should be even more careful. Good women will realize their sexual power and use it loyally for righteous purposes with their husbands.

There is only one King never moved by evil. This king loved righteousness and hated iniquity and always rules righteously (Heb 1:8-9). David wrote of his distant Son, “He that ruleth over men must be just, ruling in the fear of God. And he shall be as the light of the morning, when the sun riseth, even a morning without clouds; as the tender grass springing out of the earth by clear shining after rain” (II Sam 23:3-4).

Jesus Christ is that perfect king. Tempted in all points like other men, He never sinned (Heb 4:15). Though many women followed him with great devotion, He knew them only as repentant sinners. He was moved with eternal affection and dying passion for His one true love – the elect of God His Father that comprise His bride (Ps 45:10-17; Jer 31:3; Eph 5:25-27; Rev 19:5-9). Believe and obey the one King that can truly save your life.
