26. Pro 7:26 - "For she hath cast down many wounded: yea, many strong men have been slain by her." A. For she hath cast down many wounded: i. Wounded ppl. - 1. Subjected to, injured or impaired by, wounding; suffering from a wound or wounds; a. Of persons or animals. ii. Wound v. - 1. trans. To inflict a wound on (a person, the body, etc.) by means of a weapon; to injure intentionally in such a way as to cut or tear the flesh. iii. The strange woman is a warrior. a. She hunts for men (Pro 6:26). b. She lies in wait as for a prey and waits for men to fall into her deep ditch and narrow pit to be wounded (Pro 23:27-28). c. She waits with a dart to strike through his liver and kill him (Pro 7:23, 26b). d. The man that commits adultery gets a wound and dishonour (Pro 6:33). iv. She is successful in battle because she hath cast down many wounded. a. Strange women are never content with just one man. b. This is why a man should never marry one because she will not be faithful. B. yea, many strong men have been slain by her. i. She has brought down many strong men. ii. It is not only weak men that fall prey to strange women. iii. She prides herself for destroying strong men. a. Samson was a very strong man (Jdg 15:15) who was brought down by the power of a woman (Jdg 16:15-21). b. Solomon was an exceeding wise man (1Ki 4:29-31) who was strong (Pro 24:5), and he was likewise brought down by strange women (Neh 13:26). iv. If a man has no rule over his own spirit, he is weak and defenseless, no matter how physically strong he may be (Pro 25:28). a. If he can't control his lusts, he will be brought down to death by a whorish woman (Jam 1:14-15). b. We must keep under our bodies and bring them into subjection or we will become castaways who are good for nothing (1Co 9:27). v. A man could be slain by a strange woman in several ways. a. He could have his health, wealth, and reputation destroyed by her (Pro 5:9-11). b. He could be put do death for the sin of adultery if he lived under the law of Moses (Lev 20:10). c. He could be killed by her husband in a fit of jealous rage (Pro 6:34-35). d. He will be cast into the lake of fire which is the second death if he is not a child of God (Rev 20:14-15; Rev 21:8).
