Proverbs 1:11


11 If they say [‘amar], Come [yalak] with us, let us lay wait [‘arab] for blood [dam], let us lurk [tsaphan] privily for the innocent [naqiy] without cause [chinnam]:   KJV-Interlinear


11 If they say, “Come with us, let us lie in wait for blood; let us ambush the innocent without reason;  ESV


There is only one way to have legitimate gain, is by means of the spiritual life, with responsibility and accountability, wherein God provides everything, in accordance with His divine plan and process.

Anyone who does not want to follow Gods plan, has already decided to pursue their own gain, in their own way, with total disregard for God and His plan.

To lay in wait, is an expression that describes deceitful or hidden means. This does not mean that someone is hiding in the shadows, but it does mean that their method, being not from God, is one of deceit.

To lurk, is a reference to any and all activity outside of the plan of God.

Without cause, means that they have no legitimate reason or basis or claim on whatever it is they want, and are attempting to take from others.

When God created this universe, and decreed His divine plan, it was all designed and created for believers in Christ, namely those who belong to God, and are of His family.

Anyone who does not belong to God, which is clearly by their own choice, do not have any legitimate claim on anything in this universe.

Anyone who ignores Gods plan and spiritual process, which likewise is clearly by their own choice, forfeit their rights to legitimate claims on Gods provision.

This includes all unbelievers of course, but also includes believers who do not pursue their spiritual life in accordance with Gods plan and process.

By rejecting God’s spiritual process, they choose to live outside of Gods will, and therefore are attempting to take that which was not intended for them, but was intended for others who do live inside of Gods will.

And the reasons that they do this is merely for greed and illegitimate or unjust gain. To take what was not intended for you, is nothing more than theft.

However, when an individual, being saved, lives their life within the sphere of Gods plan and design, then whatever they have or need or want, is provided by God. And that divine provision is legitimate and just.


These studies are a part of the massive daily study web site at DailyBibeStudy.Org, and are written, so that you can come to Christ if you have not done so already, and therefore not be lost forever.

And if you have already believed in Christ, then these studies are written so you can learn and understand and grow in your spiritual life, so that you can come to the full knowledge of Christ, so that you can fulfill your meaning and purpose in life as God intended for you, and so you can qualify for a phenomenal eternal reward which you will have forever.

To ignore this opportunity to pursue a daily study means you will be incomplete, unfulfilled and you will lose out, big time.

The Daily Bible Study is online, making it possible as never before in all of human history, to advance in ones relationship with God, through Christ, and to complete yourself beyond your imagination.

But each person has to decide to make that commitment. No one else can study for you. You have to do that yourself.

Keep in the Word, Isa. 41:10.
