Proverbs 1:10-19

10. My son, if sinners entice thee, consent thou not.
11. If they say, Come with us, let us lay wait for blood, let us lurk privily for the innocent without cause:
12. Let us swallow them up alive as the grave; and whole, as those that go down into the pit:
13. We shall find all precious substance, we shall fill our houses with spoil:
14. Cast in thy lot among us; let us all have one purse:
15. My son, walk not thou in the way with them; refrain thy foot from their path:
16. For their feet run to evil, and make haste to shed blood.
17. Surely in vain the net is spread in the sight of any bird.
18. And they lay wait for their [own] blood; they lurk privily for their [own] lives.
19. So [are] the ways of every one that is greedy of gain; [which] taketh away the life of the owners thereof.

10. My son, if sinners entice thee, consent thou not
In verse ten it say's do not say ok to fall into sin by doing something evil that is directly from satan himself.

11. If they say, Come with us, let us lay wait for blood, let us lurk privily for the innocent without cause

Here in verse 11; It is known that these things happen; by the words ""if they say..." First we are instructed not to go." Then the evil is said. "Let us lay wait for blood.."It is planned. Then they are going to do things to the innocent without any reason. When we have a loved one hurt or injured because someone does it to us; we often get the question; why? He or she was a good person. They did not deserve this. We torture ourselves trying to find the reason.

12. Let us swallow them up alive as the grave; and whole, as those that go down into the pit:

We hear it in the news all the time how people turn against people; yet there is no reason for it. They just do it. This is how satan works; he wants people to lay in wait to destroy others.

Laying in wait mentally and even in our hearts is wrong as wel. ie He or she did this to me; now I am just waiting for even worse thing to happen to them. No matter how we juice it up; We are harmfully to others and ourselves lurking as satan wants us to do; to destroy our own souls.

13. We shall find all precious substance, we shall fill our houses with spoil:

The one who literally lurks and waits, wants substance, wants others possessions by taking & stealing. I would like to submit that if it is in our hearts to get vengeance; we want substance. We tend to want something to happen to them. We want to take possession of the vengeance that we think or maybe deserved. We want to fill our life, the house that God has given us ie our bodies and fill it with the spoil of vengeance, or see what happens when you do this to me.

14 Cast in thy lot among us; let us all have one purse

15. My son, walk not thou in the way with them; refrain thy foot from their path

Another exhaultation not to go down this road. Let us learn to walk the narrow path with the Lord Jesus.

6. For their feet run to evil, and make haste to shed blood.

You see this is not good. Have we not heard a robery go wrong and someone was killed. It is most likely in lurking and steeling or robery can lead to innocent blood being shed.

Surely in vain the net is spread in the sight of any bird.

When a bird is cought by the net. It is obscured from the bird. so the bird can be cought. It is very unlikely that a bird is going to be cought knowing that the net is in sight.

18. And they lay wait for their [own] blood; they lurk privily for their [own] lives.

Those that do such things know that they lay in wait for their own destruction. They wait leisurley to destroy and to steal. They get anxious and want to do it quickly. What a way of destroying peoples lives that satan has put in their hearts to do. In their own demise they are brought to destruction themselves.

They are like a silly bird that sees the net for their own trap and they take the bait. These people do not take the warning of the net.

God sees and says in the bible that we are more valuable than the bird. Since we are more sensible than the bird ; would you not think that we would stay away from the net of sin and be cought up in it? Job 35:11 says we were made wiser than the fowls of heaven.

The bird trapper will hide the net so he can catch the bird. But the sinner does see the net of his life being ruined by the lurking and stealing. It may not be their intention to have his life ruined, but to get the point accross; he or she is being a silly bird that sees the net of being cought.

It is possible that they may escape the law. But there is a divine retribution that will follow he or she of their days. Remember, Vengeance comes from God.

Heberews 10:30 For we know him that hath said, Vengeance [belongeth] unto me, I will recompense, saith the Lord. And again, The Lord shall judge his people For we know him that hath said, Vengeance [belongeth] unto me, I will recompense, saith the Lord. And again, The Lord shall judge his people.

They will not want to live. They may not live out half their days. They have no reason to be proud of their possessions.

Matthew 16:26. For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?

Heberews 10:30 For we know him that hath said, Vengeance [belongeth] unto me, I will recompense, saith the Lord. And again, The Lord shall judge his people For we know him that hath said, Vengeance [belongeth] unto me, I will recompense, saith the Lord. And again, The Lord shall judge his people.

Even though Hebrews 10:30 verse is here in God's word; and we can claim it in our own lives. Let us not lay wait for something evil to happen to someone because they did something to us or our loved ones. But rather take it to heart that it is God's business and leave it entirely to him.

I can surely testify of what others have done to me. But I leave it to God to take care of it the way he wants to and I refrain myself to fall into the trap of laying in wait.

My encouragement is:
1.Do not walk with those who want to lay in wait to destroy peoples properties, stealing or their lives.

2. Do not lay in wait in our hearts to see recompense that God may do; but realize it is God's business.
