hDo not consent.
Let us ilie in wait to shed blood;
Let us lurk secretly for the innocent without cause;
12 Let us swallow them alive like 3Sheol,
And whole, jlike those who go down to the Pit;
13 We shall find all kinds of precious 4possessions,
We shall fill our houses with 5spoil;
Let us all have one purse”—
15 My son, kdo not walk in the way with them,
lKeep your foot from their path;
16 mFor their feet run to evil,
And they make haste to shed blood.
17 Surely, in 6vain the net is spread
In the sight of any 7bird;
They lurk secretly for their own lives.
19 nSo are the ways of everyone who is greedy for gain;
It takes away the life of its owners.
Or the grave
