The DEFINED King James Bible Removed the Bible Warning About the
The DEFINED King James Bible removed the
warning about the strange woman by providing a definition for "strange" that
defies the obvious meaning of the word in context.
Solomon, through the inspiration of the Holy Spirit,
warned the reader many times to beware of the strange woman:
To deliver thee from the strange woman,
even from the
stranger which flattereth with her words; Proverbs 2:16
For the lips of a strange woman drop as an honeycomb, and her
mouth is smoother than oil: Proverbs 5:3
And why wilt thou, my son, be ravished with a
and embrace the bosom of a stranger? Proverbs 5:20
To keep thee from the evil woman, from the flattery of the
tongue of a strange woman. Proverbs 6:24
That they may keep thee from the strange woman, from the
stranger which flattereth with her words. Proverbs 7:5
Take his garment that is surety for a stranger: and take a
pledge of him for a strange woman. Proverbs 20:16
For a whore is a deep ditch; and a strange woman is a narrow
pit. Proverbs 23:27
Take his garment that is surety for a stranger, and take a
pledge of him for a strange woman. Proverbs 27:13
How D. A. Waite Jr. Directs the Reader Away
From God's Warning
D. A. Waite, Jr., author of
DEFINED King James Bible, would have you believe that
"strange" in the biblical context of "strange woman," means simply a foreign or alien woman!
The meaning of "strange" in the
context of the verses listed above is not merely "foreign or alien":
a foreign or alien woman necessarily dangerous?
Is a foreign or alien woman necessarily a whore?
foreign or alien woman necessarily bent on ravishing a young man?
Is a foreign
or alien woman
necessarily a flatterer with her words?
The answer to all these questions is No.
The DEFINED King James Bible's definition for strange is WRONG
in this context. Not only is it wrong, the very presence
of this false definition for "strange" causes the reader to miss God's warning
to watch out for the "subtil at heart" strange woman.
What Does "Strange" in the context of "Strange Woman"
What does "strange" mean in the context of Solomon's warning
against the "strange woman" in Proverbs? Any reader who knows basic English
should be able to gather from the context that a strange woman is
"the stranger which flattereth with words," "a woman with the
attire of an harlot and subtil at heart"
The warning against the strange woman
is obvious in the Proverbs -- as long as you don't read Mr. Waite, Jr.'s footnotes
that steer you in another direction.
The context is king; we know that a strange woman is morally
corrupt, but just as a second voice on the matter, let us see what the Strong's
Concordance  says. Strong's Concordance lists
several usages of strange. Strong's numbers 2114 and 5237 indicates that "strange woman," in addition to foreign woman,
is used to refer to a prostitute or harlot.
(Prov. 2:16) strange woman, prostitute, harlot
(Prov. 5:3) strange woman, prostitute, harlot
(Prov. 5:20) strange woman, prostitute, harlot
(Prov. 7:5) Prov. 20:16) foreign woman, harlot
(Prov. 20:16) foreign woman, harlot
(Prov. 23:27) foreign woman, harlot
(Prov. 27:13) foreign woman, harlot
God gives us warnings in his word to keep us from falling.
(Jude 1:24) Yes, he is able to keep us from falling but we must cooperate with
him by heeding his word. Don't let anyone steal God's
words from you in the guise of "defining"
the King James Bible.

Greek or Hebrew word. (It is not a dictionary.) Never hold this or any other
study tool as an authority above
the words in the King James Bible.
