Sunrise on Temple Mount in Jerusalem; Back to Previous Devotion

July 2 - Morning

"At the window of my house
I looked down through the lattice.
I saw among the simple,
I noticed among the young men,
a youth who had no sense.
He was going down the street near her corner,
walking along in the direction of her house
at twilight, as the day was fading,
as the dark of night set in.
Then out came a woman to meet him,
dressed like a prostitute and with crafty intent...
...She took hold of him and kissed him
and with a brazen face she said:

'Today I fulfilled my vows,
and I have food from my fellowship offering at home.
...Come, let’s drink deeply of love till morning;
let’s enjoy ourselves with love!
My husband is not at home.'

...With persuasive words she led him astray;
she seduced him with her smooth talk.
All at once he followed her
like an ox going to the slaughter,
like a deer stepping into a noose
...Many are the victims she has brought down;
her slain are a mighty throng.
Her house is a highway to the grave,
leading down to the chambers of death."

- Proverbs 7:6-27

The Young Man Meets the Woman in the Street    

A father tells his son a story about a young man who was caught in a ploy that played his inexperience against his own sexual desires.

The young man was out in the street with the simple minded boys and ventured too close to this woman’s corner. The evening was ending and he should have been on his way home. She was out prowling for someone just like him. She was bold, crass and knew what she wanted. He was simple, directionless and undecided. She would set his course for him.

The mention of her fellowship offerings has two basic interpretations:

First, the fellowship offerings of Leviticus 4 and 7:11-12 are focused on fellowship with God and with other believers. The meat would be brought home, prepared and served with a delicious meal intended to be shared with others as a sign of fellowship. This woman is saying to the young man:

  • I am also a believer
  • I am in fellowship with God
  • I need to eat this meal with another person to properly fulfill my sacrifice.
  • I have prepared a delicious meal that I’d like to share with you.

Almost as an after-thought, she then hints that a sexual encounter could be a possibility after the meal and gives several reasons why it would be possible and why it would be desirable.

The second interpretation says that the woman has made a vow to pay a certain fee to the Temple if the Lord answered her prayer or fulfilled a request she had made. Well, today of all days, the Lord has answered her prayer, but she has no cash to pay her vow. The young man would be doing her a favor if he let her sell her body to him. Plus, she has no cash because her husband took the money bag and is on a long journey and will not be back for many days.

Stupid is as stupid does, so “he followed her like an ox going to the slaughter.”

In 7:17 the myrrh, aloes and cinnamon are exotic imports from Arabia and India. These same incense and spices are used to describe the woman’s private garden in Song of Solomon 4:10-16 as a euphemism for the woman’s naked body and private sexual parts.

  Christian Quote from Church History
"If you find yourself so anxious to do something that it can't wait, it's probably not of God."
- Robert Thompson

Something to Ponder??

17.7 % of Americans attend church on any given weekend according to the research done by the Evangelical Covenant Church. Yet, Gallup’s polls consistently find that 40% of Americans think they are regular church attendees because they go
to a church 12 times a
year according to
phone interviews.

(PART ONE) Archaeologists from Harvard excavated Samaria, the ancient capital

Amos 3:13-15. The walls
were made of high quality white limestone giving an appearance of an “ivory” palace.
