Wisdom is not just about learning from someone’s words, but also someone’s example, including their mistakes.
Here are few wise things you can learn about the dangers of immoral women from King Solomon, the Jewish sage.
Caveat: This is merely my opinion so cross check the biblical references provided in each point to draw your own conclusions.
Contrary to popular belief that Solomon was great because of having many women , Solomon’s greatness was actually destroyed by having many women . (1 Kings 11: 1-13)
Solomon (or his disciples) summarized in the Bible that immoral women are a deadly trap who catch those who arouse God’s anger (Proverbs 22:18)
Solomon knew that there exists a breed of women whose sole aim is to destroy men using ‘love’. (Ecclesiastes 7: 26 - 29).
Solomon knew that accountability and taking responsibility for actions is foreign to immoral women (Proverbs 30:20)
Solomon knew that hanging out with prostitutes invites poverty (Proverbs 29:3)
Solomon knew that immorality and sexual depravity invites sickness and regret (Proverbs 5:11)
There are of course a lot of things he knew about good women that he wrote. These examples are simply meant to act as a warning to those who love “baddies” “slay queens” “lanyes” et al.
If you’re interested in a similar analysis from another Jewish sage called Jesus Ben Sira (Catholics and Orthodox Christians may know him) let me know and I will share in a separate thread later.
