Proverbs 7:22

Overview - Proverbs 7
Solomon persuades to a sincere and kind familiarity with wisdom.
In an example of his own experience, he shews,
10 the cunning of a harlot;
22 and the desperate simplicity of a young wanton.
24 He dehorteth from such wickedness.

Proverbs 7:22  (King James Version)
He goeth after her straightway, as an ox goeth to the slaughter, or as a fool to the correction of the stocks;
 


straightway
Hebrew suddenly. as an.
Acts 14:13

as a
Dr. Grey, making a slight alteration in the text, renders, "as a dog to the chain, and as a deer, till a dart strike through his liver;" and Dr. Hunt, "Or as a hart boundeth into the toils, till a dart strike through his liver
" The LXX., Chaldee, Syriac, and Arabic, concur in this interpretation. The circumstance of the dart, as applied to the deer, is beautiful and proper, which otherwise we are at a loss to dispose of; and this creature, of all others, was the most proper to be noticed on this occasion; for the usual representation which the Egyptians made of a man overthrown by flattery and fair speeches was the picture of a heart captivated and ensnared by the sound of music.
