My son, if sinners entice thee, consent thou not. If they say, Come with us. Let us lay wait for blood. Let us lurk secretly for the innocent without cause. Let us swallow them up alive as Sheol, and whole, as those who go down into the pit. read more.
We shall find all precious substance. We shall fill our houses with spoil. Thou shall cast thy lot among us. We will all have one bag. My son, walk not thou in the way with them. Restrain thy foot from their path. For their feet run to evil, and they make haste to shed blood. For in vain is the net spread in the sight of any bird,

till an arrow strikes through his liver, as a bird hastens to the snare. And he does not know that it is for his life.

For in vain is the net spread in the sight of any bird, and these lay wait for their own blood. They lurk secretly for their own lives. So are the ways of everyone who is greedy of gain. It takes away the life of the owners of it. Wisdom cries aloud in the street. She utters her voice in the broad places. She cries in the chief place of concourse, at the entrance of the gates, in the city. She utters her words: How long, ye simple ones, will ye love simplicity? And scoffers delight them in scoffing, and fools hate knowledge? Turn back at my reproof. Behold, I will pour out my spirit upon you. I will make my words known to you. Because I have called, and ye have refused, I have stretched out my hand, and no man has regarded, but ye have made all my counsel void, and want none of my reproof, I also will laugh at your calamity. I will mock when your fear comes, when your fear comes as a storm, and your calamity comes on as a whirlwind, when distress and anguish come upon you. Then they will call upon me, but I will not answer. They will seek me diligently, but they shall not find me, because they hated knowledge, and did not choose the fear of LORD. They wanted none of my counsel. They despised all my reproof. Therefore they shall eat of the fruit of their own way, and be filled with their own devices. For the backsliding of the simple shall kill them, and the careless ease of fools shall destroy them.

Hear, O earth: Behold, I will bring evil upon this people, even the fruit of their thoughts, because they have not hearkened to my words. And as for my law, they have rejected it.

Waste silver, men shall call them, because LORD has rejected them.

And a certain man out of the crowd said to him, Teacher, speak to my brother to divide the inheritance with me. But he said to him, Man, who appointed me a judge or an arbitrator over you?

And he spoke a parable to them, saying, The land of a certain rich man brought forth well. And he pondered within himself, saying, What shall I do, because I have nowhere I will store my crops? And he said, I will do this. I will dismantle my barns, and I will build greater, and there I will store all my grain and my goods. And I will say to my soul, Soul, thou have many goods laid up for many years. Take thine ease, eat, drink, be merry. But God said to him, Thou foolish man, they demand thy soul from thee this night, and the things that thou prepared, whose will they be? So is he who stores up for himself, and is not being rich toward God.

They have all turned to their own way, each one to his gain, from every quarter. read more.

Shall not all these take up a parable against him, and a taunting proverb against him, and say, Woe to him who increases that which is not his (how long?) and who loads himself with pledges! Shall they not rise up suddenly that shall bite thee, and awake that shall vex thee. And thou shall be for booty to them? Because thou have plundered many nations, all the remnant of the peoples shall plunder thee, because of men's blood, and for the violence done to the land, to the city and to all who dwell therein. read more.
Woe to him who gets an evil gain for his house, that he may set his nest on high, that he may be delivered from the hand of evil! Thou have devised shame to thy house, by cutting off many peoples, and have sinned against thy soul. For the stone shall cry out of the wall, and the beam out of the timber shall answer it. Woe to him who builds a town with blood, and establishes a city by iniquity! Behold, is it not of LORD of hosts that the peoples labor for the fire, and the nations weary themselves for vanity? For the earth shall be filled with the knowledge of the glory of LORD, as the waters cover the sea. Woe to him who gives his neighbor drink, who adds thy venom, and also makes him drunken, that thou may look on their nakedness! Thou are filled with shame, and not glory. Drink thou also, and be as one uncircumcised. The cup of LORD's right hand shall come around to thee, and foul shame shall be upon thy glory.

The word of LORD came to me again, saying, What do ye mean, that ye use this proverb concerning the land of Israel, saying, The fathers have eaten sour grapes, and the son's teeth are set on edge? As I live, says lord LORD, ye shall not have [occasion] any more to use this proverb in Israel. read more.
Behold, all souls are mine, as the soul of the father, so also the soul of the son is mine. The soul that sins, it shall die. But if a man be just, and does that which is lawful and right. And has not eaten upon the mountains, nor has lifted up his eyes to the idols of the house of Israel, nor has defiled his neighbor's wife, nor has come near to a woman in her impurity, and has not wronged any man, but has restored to the debtor his pledge, has taken nothing by robbery, has given his bread to a hungry man, and has covered a naked man with a garment, he who has not given forth upon interest, nor has taken any increase, who has withdrawn his hand from iniquity, has executed TRUE justice between man and man, has walked in my statutes, and has kept my ordinances, to deal truly, he is just. He shall surely live, says lord LORD. If he begets a son who is a robber, a shedder of blood, and who does any one of these things, and who does not do any of those [duties], but has even eaten upon the mountains, and defiled his neighbor's wife, has wronged the poor and needy man, has taken by robbery, has not restored the pledge, and has lifted up his eyes to the idols, has committed abomination, has given forth upon interest, and has taken increase, shall he then live? He shall not live. He has done all these abominations. He shall surely die. His blood shall be upon him.
