Proverbs 1:8-19

The Enticement of Sinners
  • 8 (M)Hear, my son, your father's instruction And (N)do not forsake your mother's teaching; 9 Indeed, they are a (O)graceful wreath to your head And (P)ornaments about your neck. 10 My son, if sinners (Q)entice you, (R)Do not consent. 11If they say, "Come with us, Let us (S)lie in wait for blood, Let us (T)ambush the innocent without cause; 12 Let us (U)swallow them alive like Sheol, Even whole, as those who (V)go down to the pit; 13 We will find all kinds of precious wealth, We will fill our houses with spoil; 14 Throw in your lot with us, We shall all have one purse," 15 My son, (W)do not walk in the way with them (X)Keep your feet from their path, 16 For (Y)their feet run to evil And they hasten to shed blood. 17 Indeed, it is useless to spread the baited net In the sight of any bird; 18 But they (Z)lie in wait for their own blood; They ambush their own lives. 19 So are the ways of everyone who (AA)gains by violence; It takes away the life of its possessors.
