You Cannot Escape the Cruel, Vicious, Brutal, Ruthless Violence that Leads to Your Fatality

Proverbs 7:26-27 Updated American Standard Version (UASV)
26 For many are the fatally wounded[1] she has made fall,[2]
    and all her slain are a mighty throng.
27 Her house is the way to Sheol,
    descending to the chambers of death.

For many are the fatally wounded she has made fall: Here is the Hebrew noun (chalal) is literally rendered fatally wounded but elsewhere it is rendered victim (ESV) or slain (LEB). The sense of this line is that this immoral wayward woman has mortally wounded and brought death to many men.

And all her slain are a mighty army: Solomon is trying to stress the danger by using military language to describe the fatal results of interacting with this wayward woman. Fatally wounded can refer to casualties and the slain (Heb. harag) here are a mighty throng (atsumim) and can be seen as a mighty army. The verb for slain can mean with cruel, vicious, brutal, ruthless violence.

Her house is the way to Sheol: Here her house is not simply the building or home that she lives in but rather, it has the sense of what it is that is going on in her house as the focus. (see 2:18 and 5:5. Compare also 9:18) Here Sheol: (Heb. sheol) occurs sixty-six times in the UASV. The Greek Septuagint renders Sheol as Hades. It has the underlying meaning of a place of the dead, where they are conscious of nothing, awaiting a resurrection, for both the righteous and the unrighteous. (Gen. 37:35; Psa. 16:10; Ac 2:31; John 5:28-29; Acts 24:15) It corresponds to “Hades” in the NT. It does not involve torment and punishment.

Descending to the chambers of death: The Hebrew verb (yarad) rendered descending is to move downward or lower with an ominous sense. Chambers of death is an expression that is similar to, equivalent to Sheol and is similar to Proverbs 2:18 and 5:5. The Hebrew (cheder) Chambers is a rendering for a word meaning rooms that are located in the inner part of a house or building. Here Sheol is seen as a house that has many rooms.

The beauty and seductive power of this strange woman are quite deceptive because she has slain many that have entered her house. To naively believe that you can somehow escape the cruel, vicious, brutal, ruthless violence that leads to your fatality, while a throng of others has not is simply foolish. Some temptations are so consuming that the best recourse, is to stay as far removed as one can. The terminology of verse 26 is military in nature. Thus, young one needs to see the world of humankind that is alienated from God, his own weaknesses, and leanings, in addition to Satan, as a war zone. Therefore, he needs to be ever vigilant in his environment.
