Proverbs 7~day 7

October 7, 2010

Another chapter of adultery: this time aimed at the adultress.
The apple of your eye.
^ an Old English expression for the eye's center, or pupil.  The whole body is tuned to protect that pupil from harm: eyelids reflexively snap shut at the slightest hint of danger; tear ducts bathe your eye with a cleansing liquid if any irritant enters; nerve endings scream "danger" at the slightest pain or pressure.  Proverbs urges us to take as much care of its teachings as you do of your eye.
