Proverbs regarding uncordiality, unfriendliness

  1. My child, if sinners try to entice you, do not consent!
    If they say, "Come with us! We will lie in wait to shed blood; we will ambush an innocent person capriciously.
    We will swallow them alive like Sheol, those full of vigor like those going down to the Pit.
    We will seize all kinds of precious wealth; we will fill our houses with plunder.
    Join with us! We will all share equally in what we steal."
    My child, do not go down their way, withhold yourself from their path;
    for they are eager to inflict harm, and they hasten to shed blood.
    Surely it is futile to spread a net in plain sight of any bird,
    but these men lie in wait for their own blood, they ambush their own lives!
    Such are the ways of all who gain profit unjustly; it takes away the life of those who obtain it!
