13 So she caught him, and kissed him, and with an impudent face said unto him,
14 I have peace offerings with me; this day have I payed my vows.
The requirements of the peace offering are described in Leviticus 7:11-21. It is important to note that from Leviticus 7:16 that this offering was made voluntarily or as a result of the person offering the sacrifice to fulfill a vow made to the Lord. Also, in making this sacrifice of a vow to the Lord as this woman in Proverbs 7:14 said she had done, the person would offer only one part of the animal to the priest for the actual offering and would take the remainder of the animal home to eat that day or the next. The naïve young man saw two things before him. A beautiful and sexually enticing woman made an approach on him by grabbing and kissing him, and that image and act captured his eyes and ignited his passions. Secondly, as if in total contradiction to that, the woman mentioned that she had just completed a religious vow to God. In other words, she said she had just arrived home from church. While the hypocrisy of her actions and words may have been lost to this young man, we should not overlook it. If she was even telling the truth, she was saying that she had just left the temple, offered a voluntary sacrifice that indicated that she had taken a special religious effort that went beyond what was required of anyone, and now inside her house, she had this leftover meat that needed to be eaten that day. What should you do when someone makes advances on you who talks about their exceeding great spirituality yet demonstrates exceeding great carnality? Flee.
