8My son, hear the instruction of your father, and forsake not the law of your mother: 9For they shall be an ornament of grace to your head, and chains about your neck. 10My son, if sinners entice you, consent you not. 11If they say, Come with us, let us lay wait for blood, let us lurk privately for the innocent without cause: 12Let us swallow them up alive as the grave; and whole, as those that go down into the pit: 13We shall find all precious substance, we shall fill our houses with spoil: 14Cast in your lot among us; let us all have one purse: 15My son, walk not you in the way with them; refrain your foot from their path: 16For their feet run to evil, and make haste to shed blood. 17Surely in vain the net is spread in the sight of any bird. 18And they lay wait for their own blood; they lurk privately for their own lives. 19So are the ways of every one that is greedy of gain; which takes away the life of the owners thereof.
