P R O V E R B S
The scope of this chapter is much the same with
that of ch. ii. To
write the same things, in other words, ought not to be grievous,
for it is safe, Phil. iii.
1. Here is, I. An exhortation to get acquaintance with
and submit to the laws of wisdom in general, ver. 2. II. A particular caution against the
sin of whoredom, ver.
3-14. III. Remedies prescribed against that sin. 1.
Conjugal love, ver.
15-20. 2. A regard to God's omniscience, ver. 21. 3. A dread of the miserable
end of wicked people, ver. 22,
23. And all little enough to arm young people against
those fleshly lusts which war against the soul.
