So she seizes him and kisses him,
and shamelessly she says to him, Bible

“shamelessly.” The literal Hebrew is an idiom, “with a strong face,” meaning that she has conviction. She is not doubtful or double-minded about her sexual immorality. She knows what she is doing and is not deterred in any way by the idea that it is wrong or that people, including her husband, will be hurt. It is a good lesson for people to learn that such evil people exist in our society. Sometimes Christians are so afraid of making a bad judgment about a person that we make excuses for people who are openly evil. That is not wise. As Jesus taught us, we are to judge with a righteous judgment (John 7:24), and if a person is evil, that means calling them evil. Jesus set the example for us (Matt. 23:13-33). Paul put overtly sexually immoral people out of the church (1 Cor. 5:2, 13).
