    King James Bible - Proverbs 5:22

    His own iniquities shall take the wicked himself, and he shall be holden with the cords of his sins.

    World English Bible

    The evil deeds of the wicked ensnare him. The
    cords of his sin hold him firmly.

    Douay-Rheims - Proverbs 5:22

    His own iniquities catch the wicked, and he is
    fast bound with the ropes of his own sins.

    Webster's Bible Translation

    His own iniquities shall take the wicked himself, and he shall be held with the
    cords of his sins.

    Original Hebrew

    5771 ילכדנו 3920 את 853 הרשׁע 7563 ובחבלי 8551 חטאתו 2403 יתמך׃ 2256

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 5:22

    Sus propias iniquidades prenderán al impío, y con las cuerdas de su pecado será detenido.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Proverbs 5:22

    Verse 22. He shall be holden with the
    cords of his sins. ] Most people who follow unlawful pleasures, think they can give them up whenever they please; but sin repeated becomes customary; custom soon engenders habit; and habit in the end assumes the form of necessity; the man becomes bound with his own cords, and so is led captive by the devil at his will.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 22. His own
    iniquities shall take the wicked himself , etc.] As in a snare or net, as Gersom observes; in which the adulterer is so entangled that he cannot extricate himself; he may fancy that when he grows old his lusts will be weakened, and he shall be able to get clear of them, and have repentance for them, but he will find himself mistaken; he will become but more and more hardened by them and confirmed in them, and will have neither will nor power to repent of them, and shake off those shackles with which he is bound: and it may be understood of the guilt and punishment of his sins; that the horrors of a guilty conscience shall seize him, there will be no need of any others to arrest him, these will do that office; or diseases shall come upon him for his sins, and bring him to the dust of death, and so to everlasting destruction; and he shall be holden with the cords of his sins ; which he has been all his life committing and twisting together, and made as it were cords of, which by constant practice become strong as such; with the guilt of which he is bound as a malefactor, and will be brought to justice, being reserved in these cords, as the angels that sinned in their chains, unto the judgment of the great day; the phrase denotes the strength of sin, the impotency of man to get rid of it, and the sure and inevitable ruin that comes by it.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 15-23 -
    Lawful marriage is a means God has appointed to keep from thes destructive vices. But we are not properly united, except as we atten to God's word, seeking his direction and blessing, and acting with affection. Ever remember, that though secret sins may escape the eye of our fellow-creatures, yet a man's ways are before the eyes of the Lord, who not only sees, but ponders all his goings. Those who are s foolish as to choose the way of sin, are justly left of God to themselves, to go on in the way to destruction __________________________________________________________________
