Let’s set an ambushPr 12:6; Jr 5:26 and kill someone.1:11 Lit Let’s ambush for blood Let’s attack some innocent personPs 10:8 just for fun!1:11 Lit person for no reason 12Let’s swallow them alive,Ps 124:3 like Sheol, whole, like those who go down to the Pit.Ps 28:1 13We’ll find all kinds of valuable property and fill our houses with plunder.Pr 24:4 14Throw in your lot with us, and we’ll all share the loot”1:14 Lit us; one bag will be for all of us  — 15my son, don’t travel that road with themPs 1:1; Pr 4:14 or set foot on their path,Ps 119:101; Pr 16:19 16because their feet run toward evil and they hurry to shed blood.Pr 6:17–18; Is 59:7; Rm 3:15 17It is useless to spread a net where any bird can see it, 18but they set an ambush to kill themselves;1:18 Lit they ambush for their blood they attack their own lives. 19Such are the paths of all who make profit dishonestly;Pr 15:27; Ezk 22:27; Hab 2:6–12 it takes the lives of those who receive it.1:19 Lit takes the life of its masters Wisdom’s Plea 20Wisdom calls out in the street; she makes her voice heard in the public squares.Pr 8:1–3; 9:3 21She cries out above1:21 Lit at the head of the commotion; she speaks at the entrance of the city gates: 22“How long, inexperienced ones, will you love ignorance? How long will you mockersPs 1:1 enjoy mocking and you fools hate knowledge?Jb 21:14; Pr 1:29; 5:12 23If you respond to my warning,1:23 Lit you turn back to my reprimandPr 3:11; 15:5,31–32 then I will pour out my spirit on youJl 2:28 and teach you my words. 24Since I called out and you refused,Is 65:12; 66:4; Jr 7:13; Zch 7:11 extended my hand and no one paid attention,Is 65:2; Rm 10:21 25since you neglected all my counselPs 107:11; Lk 7:30 and did not accept my correction, 26I, in turn, will laugh at your calamity.Ps 2:4 I will mock when terror strikes you, 27when terror strikes you like a storm and your calamity comes like a whirlwind, when trouble and stress overcome you. 28Then they will call me, but I won’t answer; they will search for me, but won’t find me.1Sm 8:18 29Because they hated knowledge, didn’t choose to fear the Lord,Pr 1:7 30were not interested in my counsel, and rejected all my correction,Pr 5:12; 15:5 31they will eat the fruit of their wayJr 6:19 and be glutted with their own schemes.Pr 14:14; 28:19 32For the apostasy of the inexperienced will kill them,Jr 2:19 and the complacency of fools will destroy them. 33But whoever listens to me will live securely and be undisturbed by the dread of danger.” Blessed be the Lord!
