Genesis 13:12-13

12Abram settled in the land of Canaan, while Lot settled among the cities of the valley and moved his tent as far as Sodom. 13Now the men of Sodom a  were wicked, great sinners against the  Lord.

Genesis 14:12

12They also took Lot, b  the son of Abram’s brother, c  who was dwelling in Sodom, and his possessions, and went their way.

1 Kings 12:8

8But he abandoned the counsel that the old men gave him and took counsel with the young men who had grown up with him and stood before him.

1 Kings 12:10

10And the young men who had grown up with him said to him, “Thus shall you speak to this people who said to you, ‘Your father made our yoke heavy, but you lighten it for us,’ thus shall you say to them, ‘My little finger is thicker than my father’s thighs.

Proverbs 1:11-19

11If they say, “Come with us, d  let us lie in wait for blood;
e  let us ambush the innocent without reason;
12like Sheol let us f  swallow them alive,
and whole, like g  those who go down to the pit;
13we shall find all precious goods,
we shall fill our houses with plunder;
14throw in your lot among us;
we will all have one purse”—
15my son h  do not walk in the way with them;
i  hold back your foot from their paths,
16for j  their feet run to evil,
and they make haste to shed blood.
17 k  For in vain is a net spread
in the sight of any bird,
18but these men l  lie in wait for their own blood;
they m  set an ambush for their own lives.
19 n  Such are the ways of everyone who is o  greedy for unjust gain;
p  it takes away the life of its possessors.

Proverbs 2:12-19

12delivering you from the way of evil,
from men of perverted speech,
13who forsake the paths of uprightness
to q  walk in the ways of darkness,
14who r  rejoice in doing evil
and s  delight in the perverseness of evil,
15men whose t  paths are crooked,
u  and who are v  devious in their ways.
16 So w  you will be delivered from the forbidden
Hebrew strange
woman,
from y  the adulteress
Hebrew foreign woman
with aa  her smooth words,
17who forsakes ab  the companion of her youth
and forgets ac  the covenant of her God;
18 ad  for her house sinks down to death,
and her paths to the departed;
Hebrew  to the Rephaim

19none who go to her come back,
nor do they regain the paths of life.

Proverbs 7:22-23

22All at once he follows her,
as an ox goes to the slaughter,
or as a stag is caught fast
Probable reading (compare Septuagint, Vulgate, Syriac); Hebrew  as an anklet for the discipline of a fool

23till an arrow pierces its liver;
as ag  a bird rushes into a snare;
he does not know that it will cost him his life.

Proverbs 7:27

27Her house is ah  the way to Sheol,
going down to the chambers of death.

Proverbs 9:6

6Leave ai  your simple ways
Or  Leave the company of the simple
and ak  live,
al  and walk in the way of insight.”
