Proverbs 7:13

Proverbs 7:13

So she caught him, and kissed him
The young man that went near her corner where she was plying, or in the way to her house, where she was sitting, or standing, waiting and watching for such an opportunity, for such a person, as a prey to fasten on; and no sooner she saw him, and come up to him, but, without any ceremony or address, she laid hold upon him, as the word F12 signifies, threw her arms about his neck, and embraced him in them; and, what is unusual for women to do, kissed him, in order to stir up wanton affections and impure desires in him; [and] with an impudent face;
or, "and she strengthened her face" F13; rubbed her forehead, put on a brasen face, a whore's front; see ( Jeremiah 3:3 ) ( Revelation 17:5 ) . And said unto him;
accosted him in the following manner, without shame or blushing.
