Proverbs 7:14-15

Context

7:14 “I have 1  fresh meat at home; 2 

today I have fulfilled my vows!

7:15 That is why I came out to meet you,

to look for you, 3  and I found you!

1 tn Heb “with me.”

2 tn Heb “I have peace offerings.” The peace offerings refer to the meat left over from the votive offering made at the sanctuary (e.g., Lev 7:11-21). Apparently the sacrificial worship meant as little to this woman spiritually as does Christmas to modern hypocrites who follow in her pattern. By expressing that she has peace offerings, she could be saying nothing more than that she has fresh meat for a meal at home, or that she was ceremonially clean, perhaps after her period. At any rate, it is all probably a ruse for winning a customer.

3 tn Heb “to look diligently for your face.”
