Proverbs 1:12-22 (New International Version)

View In My Bible
12 let's swallow1 them alive, like the grave,a and whole, like those who go down to the pit;2 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 purse3"-- 15 my son, do not go along with them, do not set foot4 on their paths;5 16 for their feet rush into sin,6 they are swift to shed blood.7 17 How useless to spread a net in full view of all the birds! 18 These men lie in wait8 for their own blood; they waylay only themselves!9 19 Such is the end of all who go after ill-gotten gain; it takes away the lives of those who get it.10

How long will mockers delight in mockery and fools hate13 knowledge?
