Proverbs 5:3, For the lips of a strange woman drop as an honeycomb, and her mouth is smoother than oil:
The picture that the father paints of this woman is of a woman who drips sweetness.
Her actions, her speech, her dress, all are designed to appeal to youthful lusts and will draw to her all but those who are wise to her wiles.
The word drop means to ooze, to fall in drops.
It indicates a continuing gradual sweetness, a wearing down type of sweetness.
The picture is of a honeycomb oozing honey.
It pictures a slow continuous process of dripping honey.
As the bees have constructed the honeycomb with much activity and over a lengthy period of time this woman has perfected her sweetness designed to capture her prey.
The sweetness of her lips is designed to bring her victim to her lips for her mouth is smoother than oil.
Her mouth is her weapon of war.
She decorates it, she emphasizes it, she enhances it to promote her purposes of capture.
Her mouth is designed to send forth messages of flattery and sweetness to draw her victim to it.
And once drawn to her mouth passionate kisses will draw her victim to her and are intended ultimately to escort her victim into hell.
In the Hebrew this is strong symbolic language describing in vivid pictures the result of yielding to youthful lusts.
In other words Satan uses the mouth of the strange woman as an entrance into hell.
Her words of flattery are designed to cater to the pride of youth and her mouth of kisses are designed to cater to the flesh of youth.
This father intends for his son to know about these things early on and to know the price of these pleasures.
For the price is high and to know that price early on is to have a protective barrier surrounding.
Our Lord Jesus Christ said in Luke 14:28-30, For which of you, intending to build a tower, sitteth not down first, and counteth the cost, whether he have sufficient to finish it? Lest haply, after he hath laid the foundation, and is not able to finish it, all that behold it begin to mock him, Saying, This man began to build, and was not able to finish.
It is the responsibility of the father to sit down with his children and count the cost of sin.
Paint the picture for them with all the colors that sin presents itself for they do not yet know how to paint and how to count.
For no matter how sweet the beginning, never will it surpass the bitterness of the end.
Latin Proverb: The sins of youth are paid for in old age.
So he continues painting the picture of her end in saying by faith: Go to Proverbs 5:4,5
