I’m eager to share what I see in the following passage, but I want to hear your ponderings, whatever they are, first. As you look, consider what the four items in verse 19 have in common, culminating in the way of a man with a maiden. Also, note the contrast of beauty in verse 19 with the ugliness of verse 20. Part of learning to see in Scripture is being unafraid to ask questions, even if those questions seem foolish. Share your questions, insights, and then I will too. Let’s be like iron sharpening iron!
There are three things that are too amazing for me,
Four that I do not understand;
The way of an eagle in the sky,
The way of a snake on a rock
The way of a ship on the high seas,
And the way of a man with a maiden.
This is the way of an adulteress:
She eats and wipes her mouth
And says, “I’ve done nothing wrong.”
