Advice to the Young

7 “To have knowledge, you must first have reverence for the Lord. Stupid people have no respect for wisdom and refuse to learn. 8 My child, pay attention to what your father and mother tell you. 9 Their teaching will improve your character as a handsome turban or a necklace improves your appearance. 10 My child, when sinners tempt you, don’t give in. 11 Suppose they say, “Come on; let’s find someone to kill! Let’s attack some innocent people for the fun of it! 12 They may be alive and well when we find them, but they’ll be dead when we’re through with them! 13 We’ll find all kinds of riches and fill our houses with loot! 14 Come and join us, and we’ll all share what we steal.”15 My child, don’t go with people like that. Stay away from them. 16 They can’t wait to do something bad. They’re always ready to kill. 17 It does no good to spread a net when the bird you want to catch is watching, 18 but people like that are setting a trap for themselves, a trap in which they will die. 19 Robbery always claims the life of the robber—this is what happens to anyone who lives by violence.” (‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭1:7-19‬ ‭GNT‬‬)
