The Enticement of Sinners

8 Hear, my son, your father's instruction And do not forsake your mother's teaching;

9 Indeed, they are a graceful wreath to your head And ornaments about your neck.

10 My son, if sinners entice you, Do not consent.
aeb{T -l;a ~yia'J;x '$.WT;p.y -mia yin.B
11 If they say, "Come with us, Let us lie in wait for blood, Let us ambush the innocent without cause;
h'n.P.cin ~'d.l h'b.r,a,n .Wn'Tia h'k.l .Wr.ma{y -mia ? ~'Nix yiq'n.l
12 Let us swallow them alive like Sheol, Even whole, as those who go down to the pit;

13 We will find all kinds of precious wealth, We will fill our houses with spoil;

14 Throw in your lot with us, We shall all have one purse,"

18 But they lie in wait for their own blood; They ambush their own lives.

Wisdom Warns

20 Wisdom shouts in the street, She lifts her voice in the square;
H'lw{q !eTiT tw{b{x.r'B h'N{r'T #.Wx;B tw{m.k'x
21 At the head of the noisy streets she cries out; At the entrance of the gates in the city she utters her sayings:
22 "How long *, O naive ones, will you love being simple-minded? And scoffers delight themselves in scoffing And fools hate knowledge?
!w{c'l ~yicel.w yit,p .Wb]hea.T ~Iy't.P y;t'm -d;[ ? t;['d -.Wa.n.fIy ~yilyis.k.W ~,h'l .Wd.m'x
23 "Turn to my reproof, Behold, I will pour out my spirit on you; I will make my words known to you.
yix.Wr ~,k'l h'[yiB;a heNih yiT.x;kw{t.l .Wb.Wv'T ? ~,k.t,a y;r'b.d h'[yidw{a
24 "Because I called and you refused, I stretched out my hand and no one paid attention;
!yea.w yid'y yityij'n .Wnea'm.T;w yita'r'q !;[;y ? byiv.q;m
25 And you neglected all my counsel And did not want my reproof;
~,tyib]a a{l yiT.x;kw{t.w yit'c][ -l'k .W[.r.piT;w
26 I will also laugh at your calamity; I will mock when your dread comes,
27 When your dread comes like a storm And your calamity comes like a whirlwind, When distress and anguish come upon you.
28 "Then they will call on me, but I will not answer; They will seek me diligently but they will not find me,
a{l.w yin.nUr]x;v.y h,n/[,a a{l.w yin.nUa'r.qIy z'a ? yin.nUa'c.mIy
29 Because * they hated knowledge And did not choose the fear of the LORD.
a{l h'w{h.y t;a.rIy.w t;['d .Wa.n'f -yiK t;x;T ? .Wr'x'b
30 "They would not accept my counsel, They spurned all my reproof.
yiT.x;kw{T -l'K .Wc]a'n yit'c][;l .Wb'a -a{l
31 "So they shall eat of the fruit of their own way And be satiated with their own devices.
.W['B.fIy ~,hyet{c][{Mim.W ~'K.r;d yir.Pim .Wl.ka{y.w
32 "For the waywardness of the naive will kill them, And the complacency of fools will destroy them.
33 "But he who listens to me shall live securely And will be at ease from the dread of evil."
