Matthew Henry's Proverbs Chapter 7 Bible commentary...
Invitations to learn wisdom. (1-5) The arts of seducers, with warnings against them. (6-27)1-5 We must lay up God's commandments safely. Not only, Keep them, and you shall live; but, Keep them as those that cannot live without them. Those that blame strict and careful walking as needless and too precise, consider not that the law is to be kept as the apple of the eye; indeed the law in the heart is the eye of the soul. Let the word of God dwell in us, and so be written where it will be always at hand to be read. Thus we shall be kept from the fatal effects of our own passions, and the snares of Satan. Let God's word confirm our dread of sin, and resolutions against it.
6-27 Here is an affecting example of the danger of youthful lusts. It is a history or a parable of the most instructive kind. Will any one dare to venture on temptations that lead to impurity, after Solomon has set before his eyes in so lively and plain a manner, the danger of even going near them? Then is he as the man who would dance on the edge of a lofty rock, when he has just seen another fall headlong from the same place. The misery of self-ruined sinners began in disregard to God's blessed commands. We ought daily to pray that we may be kept from running into temptation, else we invite the enemies of our souls to spread snares for us. Ever avoid the neighbourhood of vice. Beware of sins which are said to be pleasant sins. They are the more dangerous, because they most easily gain the heart, and close it against repentance. Do nothing till thou hast well considered the end of it. Were a man to live as long as Methuselah, and to spend all his days in the highest delights sin can offer, one hour of the anguish and tribulation that must follow, would far outweigh them.

Keeping the commandments of God is the path that keeps us from the fallen woman it amazes me how plain the bible is yet most Christians blindly follow all catholic adopted pagan festivals and reject Gods Sabbath and holy days these are the ones Jesus talks about in luke 6 46 and mark 7 6 thru 9 Jesus said he is Lord of the Sabbath why woule he change its observance not tell his apostles nor amend the 4th commandment in the NT i thank God for opening my eyes and pray i can be worthy and fruitful in spreading the truth

This is a warning for young men who want to see life from the perception of pleasure without understanding the danger of falling from Christ. It exposes the path of destruction men without understanding had followed to destruction. It is also a warning to the Church to beware of worldliness as it is common place today

Strange woman/Strange church. That which is condemned is condemned already. Unless Satan can cast Satan out. No only through the blood of Christ. God allmighty.Shangdi. Alpha and Omega. Morning and evening Star. The beginning. And the End. He who is he who was and is to come... we need to pray hard so we don't become deceived by the enemy. And trust trust trust in the Lord God allmighty.

When we stay in the word pray n have a personal relationship with God we are not easily swayed by the words n works of Satan. Its easy to get caught up if we r not focused n prayed up.

To me I am being told to keep the words of the God with me and that I need to keep the 10 commandments and not break them.

This passage relates to any woman of this sort, but certainly is more specifically referring to the MOTHER OF HARLOTS (notice that it is plural in the following verse, but it specifically speaks of the MOTHER OF HARLOTS, being MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, without question is the Roman Catholic Church.
REVELATION 17:5: And upon her forehead [was] a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.
