Proverbs 7:20 New English Translation (NET Bible)

20 He has taken a bag of money with him;[a]
he will not return until[b] the end of the month.”[c]


  1. Proverbs 7:20 tn Heb “in his hand.”
  2. Proverbs 7:20 tn Heb “he will come back to his home at.”
  3. Proverbs 7:20 tn Heb “new moon.” Judging from the fact that the husband took a purse of money and was staying away until the next full moon, the woman implies that they would be safe in their escapade. If v. 9 and v. 20 are any clue, he could be gone for about two weeks—until the moon is full again.
