“None that go unto her return again, neither take they hold of the paths of life.”
King James Version (KJV)
2:17 Forsaketh - Her husband whom she took to be her guide and governor, in her youth. The covenant - The marriage covenant: so called because God is the author of that mutual obligation: and because God is called to be the witness and judge of that solemn promise and covenant.
2:18 For - Conversation with her (which was most usual in her own house) is the certain way to death, which it brings many ways, and undoubtedly, without repentance, to God's wrath and the second death.
2:20 That - This depends upon ver.#11|, and is mentioned as another happy fruit of wisdom.
