Proverbs 1:10-19  
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.  

Romans 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.

Proverbs 4:14-15  
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.  

Proverbs 9:6  
Forsake the foolish, and live; and go in the way of understanding.

Proverbs 9:13-18  
A foolish woman is clamorous: she is simple, and knoweth nothing.  For she sitteth at the door of her house, on a seat in the high places of the city,  To call passengers who go right on their ways:  Whoso is simple, let him turn in hither: and as for him that wanteth understanding, she saith to him,  Stolen waters are sweet, and bread eaten in secret is pleasant.  But he knoweth not that the dead are there; and that her guests are in the depths of hell.  

Compare to 1 Timothy 6:4. Misery loves company. Compare Prov 9:15 with Prov 7:13-15, 25-27, & Prov 23:27-28.
Cross Reference: James 1:14-15 & Ephesians 5:12.

Proverbs 12:5  
The thoughts of the righteous are right: but the counsels of the wicked are deceit.

Proverbs 12:11  
He that tilleth his land shall be satisfied with bread: but he that followeth vain persons is void of understanding.

Proverbs 12:26  
The righteous is more excellent than his neighbour: but the way of the wicked seduceth them.

Proverbs 13:20  
He that walketh with wise men shall be wise: but a companion of fools shall be destroyed.

Proverbs 14:7  
Go from the presence of a foolish man, when thou perceivest not in him the lips of knowledge.

Proverbs 16:29  
A violent man enticeth his neighbour, and leadeth him into the way that is not good.

Proverbs 22:14  
The mouth of strange women is a deep pit: he that is abhorred of the LORD shall fall therein.

Proverbs 22:24-25  
Make no friendship with an angry man; and with a furious man thou shalt not go:  Lest thou learn his ways, and get a snare to thy soul.  

Proverbs 23:20-21  
Be not among winebibbers; among riotous eaters of flesh:  For the drunkard and the glutton shall come to poverty: and drowsiness shall clothe a man with rags.  

Proverbs 23:27-28  
For a whore is a deep ditch; and a strange woman is a narrow pit.  She also lieth in wait as for a prey, and increaseth the transgressors among men.  

Proverbs 24:1-2  
Be not thou envious against evil men, neither desire to be with them.  For their heart studieth destruction, and their lips talk of mischief.  

Proverbs 24:21-22  
My son, fear thou the LORD and the king: and meddle not with them that are given to change:  For their calamity shall rise suddenly; and who knoweth the ruin of them both?  

1 Peter 2:17 says that we should fear God and honor the king. We should show respect to positions of authority.

Proverbs 25:4-5  
Take away the dross from the silver, and there shall come forth a vessel for the finer.  Take away the wicked from before the king, and his throne shall be established in righteousness.  

Cross Reference: Prov 26:23, Ezek 22:18; Mal 3:2-3. The natural truth of Prov 25:4 illustrates the spiritual truth of Prov 25:5.

Proverbs 28:7  
Whoso keepeth the law is a wise son: but he that is a companion of riotous men shameth his father.

1 Cor 15:33

Proverbs 28:19  
He that tilleth his land shall have plenty of bread: but he that followeth after vain persons shall have poverty enough.

If a man doesn't contribute by working when he is able to work then he shouldn't eat (2 Th 3:10-12).

Proverbs 29:3  
Whoso loveth wisdom rejoiceth his father: but he that keepeth company with harlots spendeth his substance.

What a shame the prodigal son didn't heed this parable (Luke 15:13, 30). As Proverbs 5:8-10 and 6:26 proclaim, keeping company with harlots will separate you from your money fast!

Proverbs 29:24  
Whoso is partner with a thief hateth his own soul: he heareth cursing, and bewrayeth it not.
