Proverbs 1:11-15 – Swallow Up Alive Like Sheol


Proverbs 1:11-15 – If they say, “Come with us, Let’s lay in wait for blood; Let’s lurk secretly for the innocent without cause; Let’s swallow them up alive like Sheol, And whole, like those who go down into the pit. We’ll find all valuable wealth. We’ll fill our houses with spoil. You shall cast your lot among us. We’ll all have one purse.” My son, don’t walk in the way with them. Keep your foot from their path. — World English

Here Solomon warns as a father not to follow those who recruit us in the path of robbery and murder. Such often bring sudden death to their victims, as described in this verse. Such would not only rob, but utterly destroy their victim, in order to get rid of the evidence, leaving only the spoils of this horrendous crime. There is nothing here to support the teaching that sheol has either a compartment of torture or a paradise compartment.
