8 iHear, my son, your father's instruction,
9 for they are ja graceful garland for your head
and kpendants for your neck.
10 My son, if sinners lentice you,
11 If they say, “Come with us, mlet us lie in wait for blood;
nlet us ambush the innocent without reason;
12 like Sheol let us oswallow them alive,
and whole, like pthose who go down to the pit;
15 my son, qdo not walk in the way with them;
rhold back your foot from their paths,
16 for stheir feet run to evil,
17 tFor in vain is a net spread
18 but these men ulie in wait for their own blood;
they uset an ambush for their own lives.
xit takes away the life of its possessors.
