Proverbs 1:15-25

RSV 15 my son, do not walk in the way with them, hold back your foot from their paths; NIV 15 my son, do not go along with them, do not set foot on their paths; RSV 16 for their feet run to evil, and they make haste to shed blood. NIV 16 for their feet rush into sin, they are swift to shed blood. RSV 17 For in vain is a net spread in the sight of any bird; NIV 17 How useless to spread a net in full view of all the birds! RSV 18 but these men lie in wait for their own blood, they set an ambush for their own lives. NIV 18 These men lie in wait for their own blood; they waylay only themselves! RSV 19 Such are the ways of all who get gain by violence; it takes away the life of its possessors. NIV 19 Such is the end of all who go after ill-gotten gain; it takes away the lives of those who get it. RSV 20 Wisdom cries aloud in the street; in the markets she raises her voice; NIV 20 Wisdom calls aloud in the street, she raises her voice in the public squares; RSV 21 on the top of the walls she cries out; at the entrance of the city gates she speaks: NIV 21 at the head of the noisy streets she cries out, in the gateways of the city she makes her speech: RSV 22 "How long, O simple ones, will you love being simple? How long will scoffers delight in their scoffing and fools hate knowledge? NIV 22 "How long will you simple ones love your simple ways? How long will mockers delight in mockery and fools hate knowledge? RSV 23 Give heed to my reproof; behold, I will pour out my thoughts to you; I will make my words known to you. NIV 23 If you had responded to my rebuke, I would have poured out my heart to you and made my thoughts known to you. RSV 24 Because I have called and you refused to listen, have stretched out my hand and no one has heeded, NIV 24 But since you rejected me when I called and no one gave heed when I stretched out my hand, RSV 25 and you have ignored all my counsel and would have none of my reproof, NIV 25 since you ignored all my advice and would not accept my rebuke,
