Proverbs 1:10-19

My son, if sinners entice you, don't be persuaded. If they say-"Come with us! Let's set an ambush and kill someone. Let's attack some innocent person just for fun! Let's swallow them alive, like Sheol, still healthy as they go down to the Pit. read more.
We'll find all kinds of valuable property and fill our houses with plunder. Throw in your lot with us, and we'll all share our money"- my son, don't travel that road with them or set foot on their path, because their feet run toward trouble and they hurry to commit murder. It is foolish to spread a net where any bird can see it, but they set an ambush to kill themselves; they attack their own lives. Such are the paths of all who pursue gain dishonestly; it takes the lives of those who profit from it.
