Proverbs 1:14-24 NRS

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.
