Proverbs 5:9


lest you give your vigor 1  to others and your years to a cruel person,


Ge 38:23-26; Jud 16:19-21; Ne 13:26; Pr 6:29-35; Ho 4:13,14

NET © Notes

sn The term הוֹד (hod, “vigor; splendor; majesty”) in this context means the best time of one’s life (cf. NIV “your best strength”), the full manly vigor that will be wasted with licentiousness. Here it is paralleled by “years,” which refers to the best years of that vigor, the prime of life. Life would be ruined by living this way, or the revenge of the woman’s husband would cut it short.
