81Hear, my son, your father'sinstruction And 2do not forsake your mother'steaching ;
9Indeed, they are a 3gracefulwreath to your head And a4ornaments about your neck.
My son, ifsinners5entice you, 6Do not consent.
11If they say, "Come with us, Let us 7lie in wait for blood, Let us 8ambush the innocentwithoutcause ;
Let us 9swallow them alive like Sheol, Even whole, as those who 10godown to the pit ;
We will findall kinds of preciouswealth, We will fill our houses with spoil ;
14Throw in your lotbwith us, We shall allhaveonepurse,"
My son, 11do not walk in the way with them. 12Keep your feet from their path,
For 13their feetrun to evil And they hasten to shedblood.
17Indeed, it is cuseless to spread the baited net In the sight of anydbird ;
But they 14lie in wait for their own blood ; They ambush their own lives.
19So are the ways of everyone who 15gains by violence ; It takes away the life of its possessors.
