The Seductive Invitation
Proverbs 7:18 Updated American Standard Version (UASV)
18 Come, let us drink our fill of love until morning;
let us delight ourselves with love.
Come, let us drink our fill of love until morning: Here drink our fill means to take our fill or to fully experience our lovemaking as much as possible. The Hebrew noun rendered love (dod) is in the plural form here and in the second line are used in the Old Testament only in a sexual sense and refer to sexual intercourse between two people. The context here is immoral sexual contact. Until morning has the sense of all night long.
Let us delight ourselves with love: The Hebrew rendered delight (alas) means to enjoy, to take pleasure in each other with lovemaking all night.
