Modern American culture has attempted to normalize adultery. The goal is to minimize the stigma and consequences of the behavior. This, however, will never happen. A covenant breaker is a covenant breaker. A cheater is a cheater. A liar is a liar. Words, philosophy, and feelings will never dismiss the reproach, dishonor, emotional injury, and desire for revenge that are irrevocably attached to this behavior. This proverb also carries a deeper message, God is telling us how he feels and what He will do when we cheat on Him! If we truly understood the consequences of adultery, we would NEVER do it! Selah..
