My son, do not walk on the road with them;
keep your feet from their pathway, Bible see other translations

“walk on the road.” The Hebrew has both a literal and idiomatic meaning. The word “walk” and the metaphor of a road was widely used idiomatically for living life. When the father admonishes the son not to “walk on the road with them,” he means it literally, and he also means do not get caught up in their lifestyle.
