A Strange Woman

To deliver thee from the
strange woman, even from the stranger which flattereth with her words;... and forgetteth the covenant of her God. For her house inclineth unto death, and her paths unto the dead. Proverbs 2:16-18

The house of the strange woman inclineth unto death” (Prov. 2:16,18). Some Canaanite houses had a family burial vault underneath, reached by stone stairs. Literally, then, as well as figuratively, the unsuspecting Hebrew man who went in to a harlot was entering a “house of death”!

Booker, George., By The Way, ChristadelphianBooksOnline, Section IV
