The water fountain (Prov 5:15-5:18)

“Drink water from your own cistern.

This is flowing water from your own well.

Should your springs be scattered abroad?

Should there be streams of water in the streets?

Let them be for yourself alone.

These are not for sharing with strangers.

Let your fountain be blessed!”

Next we have a little interlude about drinking water. However, this might be a metaphor for sexual semen. You were not to let the water from your well be drunk by others. In other words, your sexual semen, like your drinking water, should stay at home. This is the flowing water from your own well that should not be scattered abroad or in the streets. They are for you alone, and not for sharing with strangers. However, your fountain should be blessed.
