Proverbs 1:10-19

NLT 10 My child, if sinners entice you, turn your back on them! NIV 10 My son, if sinners entice you, do not give in to them. NLT 11 They may say, "Come and join us. Let's hide and kill someone! Let's ambush the innocent! NIV 11 If they say, "Come along with us; let's lie in wait for someone's blood, let's waylay some harmless soul; NLT 12 Let's swallow them alive as the grave swallows its victims. Though they are in the prime of life, they will go down into the pit of death. NIV 12 let's swallow them alive, like the grave, and whole, like those who go down to the pit; NLT 13 And the loot we'll get! We'll fill our houses with all kinds of things! NIV 13 we will get all sorts of valuable things and fill our houses with plunder; NLT 14 Come on, throw in your lot with us; we'll split our loot with you." NIV 14 throw in your lot with us, and we will share a common purse"-- NLT 15 Don't go along with them, my child! Stay far away from their paths. NIV 15 my son, do not go along with them, do not set foot on their paths; NLT 16 They rush to commit crimes. They hurry to commit murder. NIV 16 for their feet rush into sin, they are swift to shed blood. NLT 17 When a bird sees a trap being set, it stays away. NIV 17 How useless to spread a net in full view of all the birds! NLT 18 But not these people! They set an ambush for themselves; they booby-trap their own lives! NIV 18 These men lie in wait for their own blood; they waylay only themselves! NLT 19 Such is the fate of all who are greedy for gain. It ends up robbing them of life. NIV 19 Such is the end of all who go after ill-gotten gain; it takes away the lives of those who get it.
