10 My son, if sinners (A)entice you,
(B)Do not consent.
11 If they say, “Come with us,
Let us (C)lie in wait for blood,
Let us (D)ambush the innocent without cause;
12 Let us (E)swallow them alive like Sheol,
Even whole, as those who (F)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 [a]with us,
We shall all have one purse,”
15 My son, (G)do not walk in the way with them.
(H)Keep your feet from their path,
16 For (I)their feet run to evil
And they hasten to shed blood.
