The Net is Spread in Vain in the Sight of Any Bird {Can you Foresee Imminent Danger?}

Surely in vain the net is spread in the sight of any bird.
Proverbs 1:17

Throughout the book of proverbs, we are constantly being warned of specific sin, and to take heed of the ensuing destructive consequences of that sin.

Going back to proverbs 1:10, it says, “My son, if sinners entice thee, do not consent.”

The wicked, and their ways, may initially appeal to our senses.

In an effort to entice, the wicked (featured in this proverb) give their most compelling argument toward securing the consent of their victim. Their pleasant description of the things to follow sound rather compelling.

In verse 13, they describe and offer such benefits as, “all sorts of precious substance” and the “filling [of your] houses with spoil.” Join us, they entreat, “and we shall all have one purse.”

The argument is enticing…
to the simple, who does not know it’s end.

To the wise, these words render themselves powerless. They are ineffective, because he is aware of it’s end. He is keenly aware of the cost and inevitable wage of this lifestyle.

Sudden destruction. Distress. Anguish. Fear. Calamity. Desolation. Death (v.26-27). The wise know that the cost is, “his own blood” (v.18).

Where the fool envisions a life of luxury and bounty, the wise foresee death and destruction, and do not consent.

So, as one who sets a trap in the presence and sight of his prey, so is the vanity of enticing the wise to partake in evil.

Wisdom gives one such a vantage point that he has already detected the trap (he is watching it being spread before his eyes), and he already knows it’s certain end. Thus, removing the element of attraction, and replacing it with aversion.

In such a way, the wise are able to avoid danger, and dwell safely.
