Proverbs 1:10-12 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)

10 My son, if sinners entice you,
don’t be persuaded.
11 If they say—“Come with us!
Let’s set an ambush and kill someone.[a]
Let’s attack some innocent person just for fun![b]
12 Let’s swallow them alive, like Sheol,
still healthy as they go down to the Pit.

Isaiah 32:6-8 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)

For a fool speaks foolishness
and his mind plots iniquity.
He lives in a godless way
and speaks falsely about the Lord.
He leaves the hungry empty
and deprives the thirsty of drink.
The scoundrel’s weapons are destructive;
he hatches plots to destroy the needy with lies,
even when the poor says what is right.
But a noble person plans noble things;
he stands up for noble causes.

Isaiah 32:6-8 New International Version (NIV)

For fools speak folly,
    their hearts are bent on evil:
They practice ungodliness
    and spread error concerning the Lord;
the hungry they leave empty
    and from the thirsty they withhold water.
Scoundrels use wicked methods,
    they make up evil schemes
to destroy the poor with lies,
    even when the plea of the needy is just.
But the noble make noble plans,
    and by noble deeds they stand.
