Genesis 13:12-1312Abram 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 14:1212They 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 12:88But 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 12:1010And 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 1:11-1911If 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 2:12-1912delivering 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 ▼
from y the adulteress ▼
▼Hebrew foreign womanwith 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 7:22-2322All 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 7:2727Her house is ah the way to Sheol,
going down to the chambers of death.
Proverbs 9:66Leave ai your simple ways ▼
▼Or Leave the company of the simpleand ak live,
al and walk in the way of insight.”
