Proverbs 31:3 Give not thy strength unto women, nor thy ways to that which destroyeth kings

Lets take an old example. One would be Delilah in the Bible. You all have seen “Samson & Delilah” (TCM) Movie in the 50′s with Vic Mature and Hedi Lamar. Most/or a lot of it is based on truth. What do you think of that movie?  Here is what I think.. She was given power…with money. And what happened? She betrayed.  Women often are traitors when given a little power, and given strength, you will have a master manipulator. The proverbs flat out states that if you do given women this type strength, she can actually destroy a whole kingdom.
Lets take Elijah and Jezebel. ‘she painted her eyes and adorned her head, and looked out of the window’ (2 Kings 9:30) Jezebel stood up against a prophet of the Almighty God. Jezebel was so proud that she never looked TO God. Jezebel was given power, Jezebel was eaten by dogs for it. Elijah, went into hiding because of this very evil woman.
