Violence and Murder
Proverbs 1:10-19Romans 3:15 is very similar to verse 16. Greed steals a person's life. Compare 1:19 with 1 Timothy 6:10 and contrast it with Matthew 6:33 & Hebrews 13:5.
My son, if sinners entice thee, consent thou not. If they say, Come with us, let us lay wait for blood, let us lurk privily for the innocent without cause: Let us swallow them up alive as the grave; and whole, as those that go down into the pit: We shall find all precious substance, we shall fill our houses with spoil: Cast in thy lot among us; let us all have one purse: My son, walk not thou in the way with them; refrain thy foot from their path: For their feet run to evil, and make haste to shed blood. Surely in vain the net is spread in the sight of any bird. And they lay wait for their own blood; they lurk privily for their own lives. So are the ways of every one that is greedy of gain; which taketh away the life of the owners thereof.
Enter not into the path of the wicked, and go not in the way of evil men. Avoid it, pass not by it, turn from it, and pass away. For they sleep not, except they have done mischief; and their sleep is taken away, unless they cause some to fall. For they eat the bread of wickedness, and drink the wine of violence.
These six things doth the LORD hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him: A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief, A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren.
Blessings are upon the head of the just: but violence covereth the mouth of the wicked.
Proverbs 10:11Compare 10:11 with Matthew 12:34 and Luke 6:45.
The mouth of a righteous man is a well of life: but violence covereth the mouth of the wicked.
Proverbs 11:4Riches don't buy salvation, see James 5:1-3.
Riches profit not in the day of wrath: but righteousness delivereth from death.

A soft answer turneth away wrath: but grievous words stir up anger.
The wrath of a king is as messengers of death: but a wise man will pacify it.
A man of great wrath shall suffer punishment: for if thou deliver him, yet thou must do it again.
The robbery of the wicked shall destroy them; because they refuse to do judgment.
Wrath is cruel, and anger is outrageous; but who is able to stand before envy?
Hell and destruction are never full; so the eyes of man are never satisfied.
Proverbs 28:15Case in point: The pharaohs (Exodus 1:14) and Herod (Matt 2:16).
As a roaring lion, and a ranging bear; so is a wicked ruler over the poor people.
A man that doeth violence to the blood of any person shall flee to the pit; let no man stay him.
Scornful men bring a city into a snare: but wise men turn away wrath.
The bloodthirsty hate the upright: but the just seek his soul.
