Proverbs 1:10-19

10.  My son, if sinful men entice you, do not give in to them.

11.  If they say, “Come along with us: let’s lie in wait for innocent blood, let’s ambush some harmless soul;

12.  let’s swallow them alive, like the grave, and whole, like those who go down to the pit;

13.  we will get all sorts of valuable things and fill our houses with plunder;

14.  cast lots with us; we will all share the loot”-

15.  my son, do not go along with them, do not set foot on their paths;

16.  for their feet rush to do evil, they are swift to shed blood.

17.  How useless to spread a net where every bird can see it!

18.  These men lie in wait for their own blood; they ambush only themselves!

19.  Such are the paths of all who go after ill-gotten gain; it takes away the Life of those who get it.
