« Psalm 150 | Proverbs 1 | Proverbs 2 »10 My son, if sinners entice you,do not consent. 11 If they say, “Come with us, let us lie in wait for blood;let us ambush the innocent without reason; 12 like Sheol let us swallow them alive,and whole, like those who go down to the pit; 13 we shall find all precious goods,we shall fill our houses with plunder; 14 throw in your lot among us;we will all have one purse”— 15 my son, do not walk in the way with them;hold back your foot from their paths, 16 for their feet run to evil,and they make haste to shed blood. 17 For in vain is a net spreadin the sight of any bird, 18 but these men lie in wait for their own blood;they set an ambush for their own lives. 19 Such are the ways of everyone who is greedy for unjust gain;it takes away the life of its possessors.
