Proverbs 1:10-20 (New International Version)

View In My Bible
10 My son, if sinners entice1 you, do not give in2 to them.3 11 If they say, "Come along with us; let's lie in wait4 for someone's blood, let's waylay some harmless soul; 12 let's swallow5 them alive, like the grave,a and whole, like those who go down to the pit;6 13 we will get all sorts of valuable things and fill our houses with plunder; 14 throw in your lot with us, and we will share a common purse7"-- 15 my son, do not go along with them, do not set foot8 on their paths;9 16 for their feet rush into sin,10 they are swift to shed blood.11 17 How useless to spread a net in full view of all the birds! 18 These men lie in wait12 for their own blood; they waylay only themselves!13 19 Such is the end of all who go after ill-gotten gain; it takes away the lives of those who get it.14
