Proverbs 1: 10 My son, if sinners entice you ,
Do not let yourself win.
11 If they say, Come with us! Let's make snares , pay blood
Tendons traps one who sits in vain on his innocence,
12 Let us swallow them alive like Sheol ,
And whole, as those that go down into the pit ;
13 We shall find all precious substance ,
We will fill our houses with spoil ;
14 Cast in thy lot among us;
There will be a scholarship for all of us !
15 My son , do not put yourself in the way with them,
Withhold thy foot from their path ;
16 For their feet run to evil,
And they make haste to shed blood.
Proverbs 24: 1 Do not envy the wicked men,
And do not want to be with them ;

And their lips talk of mischief .
