What does Proverbs 6:28 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Proverbs 6:28

Can one go upon hot coals, and his feet not be burned?
] He cannot; if he sets his feet upon them, and continues them ever so little on them, they will be burnt, and much more if he walks upon them; and so if a man gives way to the burning lusts of his heart after a whorish woman, and commits adultery with her, though not with frequency, he will not escape punishment in one shape or another; and much more if he continues such a lewd course of life; such practices are extremely dangerous F17, and there is no possibility of being unhurt by them: see ( Job 31:12 ) ; the lake of fire and brimstone, everlasting burnings, will be the portion of those that commit fornication with the whore of Rome, ( Revelation 14:10 Revelation 14:11 ) .
