6:20-24 Parental Teachings Prevent Adultery

Parental Teachings Prevent Adultery
Proverbs 6:20-24

20 My son, keep your father’s command
and do not forsake your mother’s teaching.

21 Bind them always on your heart;
fasten them around your neck.

22 When you walk, they will guide you;
when you sleep, they will watch over you;
when you awake, they will speak to you.

23 For this command is a lamp,
this teaching is a light,
and correction and instruction
are the way to life,

24 keeping you from your neighbor’s wife,
from the smooth talk of a wayward woman.

PCDC Commentary

Your father’s command and your mother’s teaching
will keep you from the smooth talk of a wayward woman.
