My son, ifsinners1entice you, 2Do not consent.
11If they say, "Come with us, Let us 3lie in wait for blood, Let us 4ambush the innocentwithoutcause ;
Let us 5swallow them alive like Sheol, Even whole, as those who 6godown to the pit ;
We will findall kinds of preciouswealth, We will fill our houses with spoil ;
14Throw in your lotawith us, We shall allhaveonepurse,"
My son, 7do not walk in the way with them. 8Keep your feet from their path,
For 9their feetrun to evil And they hasten to shedblood.
17Indeed, it is buseless to spread the baited net In the sight of anycbird ;
But they 10lie in wait for their own blood ; They ambush their own lives.
19So are the ways of everyone who 11gains by violence ; It takes away the life of its possessors.
