Proverbs 6:2 (Mini Sermon)


2. Pro 6:2 - "Thou art snared with the words of thy mouth, thou art taken with the words of thy mouth." A. Thou art snared with the words of thy mouth, i. In order to be surety for a person two things are necessary: a handshake (Pro 6:1) and a verbal agreement (the words of thy mouth) that the handshake confirms. ii. The words establishing a suretiship will snare a man. a. Snare v. - 1. a. trans. To capture (small wild animals, birds, etc.) in a snare; to catch by entangling. b. Just as an animal gets entangled in a rope or net, so a man gets entangled in foolish agreements to guarantee another's debt. c. Wicked men try to entangle the righteous with their words (Mat 22:15). d. Be very careful because wicked men will try to entangle you with carefully worded verbal or written agreements that they get you to assent to with your words. iii. Sinful or foolish words will snare the wicked (Pro 12:13). iv. A man's own words will be used to condemn him (Mat 12:37). a. A man will be judged out of the words of his own mouth (Luk 19:22). b. Death and life are in the power of the tongue (Pro 18:21). B. thou art taken with the words of thy mouth. i. Once one is snared, he is then taken (Isa 28:13). ii. The words of the agreement will be used to catch the man and then take him to cleaners to pay the debt of his friend when he defaults.
