Proverbs 1:11-14

_ _ Murder and robbery are given as specific illustrations.

_ _ lay wait ... lurk privily — express an effort and hope for successful concealment.

_ _ swallow ... grave — utterly destroy the victim and traces of the crime (Numbers 16:33; Psalms 55:15). Abundant rewards of villainy are promised as the fruits of this easy and safe course.

Matthew Henry's Commentary
