Proverbs 28:24

Whosoever robs his father or his mother and says, It is no transgression; the same is the companion of the destroyer.

Proverbs 1:10-19

My son, if sinners entice thee, do not consent. If they say, Come with us, let us lay in wait for blood; let us ambush the innocent without cause. Let us swallow them up alive as Sheol and whole as those that go down into the pit; read more.
We shall find all kinds of riches, we shall fill our houses with spoil. Cast in thy lot among us; let us all have one purse: My son, do not walk in the way with them; refrain thy foot from their path: For their feet shall run to evil and make haste to shed blood. Surely in vain the net is spread in the sight of any bird. And they lay in wait for their own blood; they ambush their own souls. So are the ways of every one that is greedy of gain which takes away the life of those who possess it.

Exodus 21:16

Likewise he that steals a man and sells him, or if he is found in his hand, he shall surely be put to death.
