“But as a wife that committeth adultery, which taketh strangers instead of her husband!”
King James Version (KJV)
16:30 How weak - Unstable, like water. An imperious woman - A woman, that knows no superior, nor will be neither guided nor governed.
16:31 Not as an harlot - Common harlots make gain of their looseness, and live by that gain; thou dost worse, thou lavishest out thy credit, wealth, and all, to maintain thine adulterers.
16:34 Contrary - Here we may see, what the nature of men is, when God leaves them to themselves: yea, tho' they have the greatest advantage, to be better, and to do better.
But as a wife that committeth adulterie, which taketh strangers in steede of her husband.
