10 My child, if sinners entice you, do not consent.
11 If they say, "Come with us, let us lie in wait for blood; let us wantonly ambush the innocent;
12 like Sheol let us swallow them alive and whole, like those who go down to the Pit.
13 We shall find all kinds of costly things; we shall fill our houses with booty.
14 Throw in your lot among us; we will all have one purse"—
15 my child, do not walk in their way, keep your foot from their paths;
16 for their feet run to evil, and they hurry to shed blood.
17 For in vain is the net baited while the bird is looking on;
18 yet they lie in wait—to kill themselves! and set an ambush—for their own lives!
19 Such is the end a of all who are greedy for gain; it takes away the life of its possessors.
