It’s smart to refuse a close friend with those who would lead you into unfulfillment and sorrowful hope. Life can be too meaningful to allow a man-kind sluggard to waste it.
Do not set foot on the path of the wicked or walk in the way of evildoers. Avoid it, do not travel on it; turn from it and go on your way.
Proverbs 4:14-15, NIV
