The Abyss of Behemoth

My son, if sinners entice you, do not consent. If they say, "Come with us, let us lie in wait for blood; let us ambush the innocent withouth reason;

like Sheol let us swallow them alive, and whole like those who go down to the pit; we shall find all precious goods, we shall fill our houses with plunder; throw in your lot among us; we will all have one purse"-

my son, do not walk in the way with them; hold back hour foot from their paths, for their feet run to evil, and they make haste to shed blood.

For in vain is a net spread in the sight of any bird, but these men lie in wait for their own blood; they set an ambush for their own lives.

Such are the ways of everyone who is greedy for unjust gain;
it takes away the life of its possessors. - Proverbs 1:10-19 (ESV)
