Old Testament, Proverbs, Chapter 8 & 9

5 Jan

8:13 The fear of the Lord is to hate evil: pride, and arrogancy, and the evil way, and the froward mouth do I hate.


9:17-18 Stolen waters are sweet, and the bread eaten in secret is pleasant. But he knoweth not that the dead are there; and that her guests are in the depths of hell.



Ps: 1. Believe in the church or not, isn’t chapter 9 verse 17-18 “common sense”?

2. For those who may wonder why “waters”, “bread” and “her guests” are symbolic of infidelity, well, the summary of chapter 9 goes “The guests of an immoral woman are in the depths of hell”. If you are against why only “woman” is mentioned here, well, the past society was patriarchy and men usually had more than a wife. How it was when the scriptures were written is far from how it is, especially after the feminist movement. Still, readers can get the spiritual teaching. 🙂
