    SEV Biblia, Chapter 2:17

    que desampara el príncipe de su juventud, y se olvida del pacto de su Dios.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Proverbs 2:17

    Verse 17. Which forsaketh the
    guide of her youth ] Leaves her father's house and instructions, and abandons herself to the public.

    The covenant of her God. ] Renounces the true religion, and mixes with idolaters; for among them prostitution was enormous. Or by the covenant may be meant the matrimonial contract, which is a covenant made in the presence of God between the contracting parties, in which they bind themselves to be faithful to each other.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 17. Which forsaketh the guide of her youth , etc.] Not God, the God of her life, and who had provided for her from her youth up; nor her parent that had taken care of her in her infancy, and had been the guardian of her virgin state; but her husband, to whom she was married in her youth, and to whom she gave up herself to be guided and directed, ruled and governed, by: and as it is an aggravation of evil in a man to deal treacherously against the wife of his youth, and the wife of his covenant, ( Malachi 2:14); so it is in a woman to forsake “the friend” or “companion of her youth” f45 , as the phrase may be rendered; who loved her and espoused her in his youthful age, and with whom he had lived long in love and friendship, and in great happiness, but now forsakes him; her affections being alienated from him, leaves his company and bed, and associates with others. Gersom interprets this of the human understanding, appointed to govern the other powers and faculties of the soul; and forgetteth the covenant of her God : not the covenant made with Noah, in which adultery, as well as other things, were forbidden; nor the law of Moses, or covenant at Sinai, in which it was condemned; but the marriage covenant, which she entered into with her husband when espoused to him, and when they mutually obliged themselves to be faithful to one another: and this is called “the covenant of God”; not only because God is the author and institutor of marriage, and has directed and enjoined persons to enter into such a contract with one another; but because he is present at it, and is a witness of such an engagement, mid is appealed unto in it; which, as it adds to the solemnity of it, makes the violation of it the more criminal.

    So the church of Rome has forsook Christ, who was her guide in her first settlement, and her husband she professed to be espoused to, as a chaste virgin; and has followed other lovers, and become the mother of harlots; so false teachers leave their guide, the Scriptures, and bring in damnable heresies, and deny the Lord that bought them, ( 2 Peter 2:1).


    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 10-22 - If we are truly wise, we shall be careful to avoid all evil company an evil practices. When wisdom has dominion over us, then it not onl fills the head, but enters into the heart, and will preserve, bot against corruptions within and temptations without. The ways of sin ar ways of darkness, uncomfortable and unsafe: what fools are those wh leave the plain, pleasant, lightsome paths of uprightness, to walk in such ways! They take pleasure in sin; both in committing it, and i seeing others commit it. Every wise man will shun such company. Tru wisdom will also preserve from those who lead to fleshly lusts, whic defile the body, that living temple, and war against the soul. Thes are evils which excite the sorrow of every serious mind, and caus every reflecting parent to look upon his children with anxiety, les they should be entangled in such fatal snares. Let the sufferings of others be our warnings. Our Lord Jesus deters from sinful pleasures, by the everlasting torments which follow them. It is very rare that an who are caught in this snare of the devil, recover themselves; so muc is the heart hardened, and the mind blinded, by the deceitfulness of this sin. Many think that this caution, besides the literal sense, is to be understood as a caution against idolatry, and subjecting the sou to the body, by seeking any forbidden object. The righteous must leav the earth as well as the wicked; but the earth is a very differen thing to them. To the wicked it is all the heaven they ever shall have to the righteous it is the place of preparation for heaven. And is in all one to us, whether we share with the wicked in the miseries of their latter end, or share those everlasting joys that shall crow believers __________________________________________________________________
