    SEV Biblia, Chapter 2:18

    Por lo cual su casa está inclinada a la muerte, y sus veredas van hacia los muertos.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Proverbs 2:18

    Verse 18. For her
    house inclineth unto death ] It is generally in by and secret places that such women establish themselves. They go out of the high road to get a residence; and every step that is taken towards their house is a step towards death. The path of sin is the path of ruin: the path of duty is the way of safety. For her paths incline unto the dead, µyapr repheim, the inhabitants of the invisible world. The woman who abandons herself to prostitution soon contracts, and generally communicates, that disease, which, above all others, signs the speediest and most effectual passport to the invisible world. Therefore it is said,

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 18. For her
    house inclineth unto death , etc.] Bends, verges, and points that way; it lies in the way to death, and brings unto it, and sinks into it as into a ditch; or all that are in her house, that are familiar with her, live and dwell with her, and commit wickedness with her; these incline or are liable to lose, and do lose, their name, character, and reputation, which is a death upon them; and bring diseases upon their bodies, which issue in corporeal death; or are in danger of dying by the hand of the injured husband, or the civil magistrate; and also are exposed unto eternal death: or “she inclines to death, which is her house” f46 , so Aben Ezra and Kimchi; and to which the Targum agrees, “for in the pit of death is her house:” that is, the house she at last comes to and must dwell in, and all that are ensnared by her; (see Proverbs 5:5 Revelation 21:8); and the second death will be the portion of the whore of Rome and all her followers, ( Revelation 14:10,11 17:8 19:20); and her paths unto the dead ; that is, her evil ways in which she walks, and into which she draws others to join with her; these lead both her and them to the “damned” in hell, to keep company with them, and be punished as they are: the word “rephaim”, here used, sometimes signifies “giants”, and so the Targum renders it here; and may refer to the giants of the old world, who were cut off for their debauchery and uncleanness, ( Genesis 6:4,11,12); and with whom such persons shall be for ever.

    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 __________________________________________________________________
