P R O V E R B S
In this chapter we have, I. A caution against rash
suretiship, ver. 1-5. II. A
rebuke to slothfulness, ver.
6-11. III. The character and fate of a malicious
mischievous man, ver.
12-15. IV. An account of seven things which God hates,
ver. 16-19. V. An
exhortation to make the word of God familiar to us, ver. 20-23. VI. A repeated warning
of the pernicious consequences of the sin of whoredom, ver. 24-35. We are here dissuaded
from sin very much by arguments borrowed from our secular
interests, for it is not only represented as damning in the other
world, but as impoverishing in this.
