The Lustful Youth Who Lacked Judgment - Prov.7.6-27

It has been a long time since I have done "literation". I could not help but see several "L's" in Proverbs 7.6-27

1. The Lustful Youth Who Lacked Judgment V.7-8
"At the window of my house I looked out through the lattice. 7 I saw among the simple, I noticed among the young men, a youth who lacked judgment. 8 He was going down the street near her corner, walking along in the direction of her house

2. The Lowering Sun V.9
..."at twilight, as the day was fading, as the dark of night set in.

3. The Loud, Lurking Woman V.10-12
"Then out came a woman to meet him, dressed like a prostitute and with crafty intent. 11 (She is loud and defiant, her feet never stay at home; 12 now in the street, now in the squares, at every corner she lurks.)

4. The Luring Kiss V.13
"She took hold of him and kissed him and with a brazen face she said: 14 “I have fellowship offerings at home; today I fulfilled my vows.

5. The Look of Death V.15-17
"So I came out to meet you; I looked for you and have found you! 16 I have covered my bed with colored linens from Egypt. 17 I have perfumed my bed with myrrh, aloes and cinnamon.

6. The Lie V.18-21
"Come, let’s drink deep of love till morning; let’s enjoy ourselves with love! 19 My husband is not at home; he has gone on a long journey. 20 He took his purse filled with money and will not be home till full moon.” 21 With persuasive words she led him astray; she seduced him with her smooth talk.

7. The Liver Pierced & Loss of Life V.22-23
"All at once he followed her like an ox going to the slaughter, like a deer stepping into a noose 23 till an arrow pierces his liver, like a bird darting into a snare, little knowing it will cost him his life.

8. The Leading Down to Chambers of Death. V.24-27
"Now then, my sons, listen to me; pay attention to what I say. 25 Do not let your heart turn to her ways or stray into her paths. 26 Many are the victims she has brought down; her slain are a mighty throng. 27 Her house is a highway to the grave, leading down to the chambers of death."
Lots to think about, wouldn't you say?
Loving the Lord and thanking Him for His amazing love for us.
