Proverbs 7:7 - Exposition

And beheld among the simple ones. Though it was night ( Proverbs 7:9 ), there was light enough from moon or stars or from illuminated houses to show what was passing. "The simple" are the inexperienced, who are easily led astray (see on Proverbs 1:4 ). Looking forth into the street on the throng of young and thoughtless persons passing to and fro, among them I discerned … a young man void of understanding; a fool, who, without any deliberate intention of sinning, put himself in the way of temptation, played on the borders of transgression. The way of escape was before him, as it is in all temptations ( 1 Corinthians 10:13 ), but he would not take it. Such a one may well be said to lack understanding, or heart, as the Hebrew expresses it ( Proverbs 6:32 , where see note).
