My son, if sinners entice you, do not consent.

If they say, Come with us; let us lie in wait [to shed] blood, let us ambush the innocent without cause [and show that his piety is in vain];

Let us swallow them up alive as does Sheol (the place of the dead), and whole, as those who go down into the pit [of the dead];

We shall find and take all kinds of precious goods [when our victims are put out of the way], we shall fill our houses with plunder;

Throw in your lot with us [they insist] and be a sworn brother and comrade; let us all have one purse in common—

My son, do not walk in the way with them; restrain your foot from their path;

For their feet run to evil, and they make haste to shed blood.

For in vain is the net spread in the sight of any bird!

But [when these men set a trap for others] they are lying in wait for their own blood; they set an ambush for their own lives.

So are the ways of everyone who is greedy of gain; such [greed for plunder] takes away the lives of its possessors.
