Proverbs 7:3 - Exposition

Bind them upon thy fingers. Wear my precepts like a ring on thy finger, so that they may go with thee, whatever thou takest in hand. Others think that the so called tephillin, or phylacteries, are meant. These were worn both on the hand and the forehead, and consisted of a leather box containing strips of parchment, on which were written four texts, viz. Exodus 13:1-10 ; 11-16; Deuteronomy 6:4-9 ; Deuteronomy 11:13-21 . The box was attached to a leather strap wound seven times round the arm three times round the middle finger, and the remainder passed round the hand (see ( Exodus 13:9 , Exodus 13:16 ; Jeremiah 22:24 ). Write them upon the table of thine heart (see on Proverbs 3:3 and Proverbs 6:21 ; and comp. Deuteronomy 6:9 ).
