14 Cast [naphal] in thy lot [gowral] among [tavek] us; let us all have one ['echad] purse [kiyc]: KJV-Interlinear
14 throw in your lot among us; we will all have one purse” ESV
The last enticement that is presented in the series, comes in the form of casting lots. The word for a lot, gowral, implies an inheritance for the potential for more gain.
But casting lots is a game of chance, or a form of gambling, wherein you throw the dice or the pebbles, as it were, for a chance for more winnings.
But we all know, that in gambling, the odds are in favor of the house. The house, in effect, owns all of the numbers, while you who are placing the bet have only the chance at one set of numbers. In other words, the odds of winning are few, and the odds of losing are many.
So the enticement comes in the form of easy winnings, which is following on the heels of easy money in the form of crime, but when joining in with others who are doing the same thing, the picture of the easy life, is a false picture. And the promise of more, is a false promise.
And all false things have one thing in common, and have only one guarantee, and that is loss and failure.
In evil, as it is in crime, a person has to do a lot of work, and do it in secret, so that his work is not revealed, or made known to others. Evil cannot be done out in the open, so it does not provide a life of ease.
The spiritual life, on the other hand is merely studying and learning and using what you study and learn in your daily life. It can be done in the open, and not in secret, and it will certainly provide a life of ease.
Throwing in your lot with evil, and the enticement of sharing in a bigger purse, is a lie.
In evil, there is always someone bigger at the top. And that means everyone below the top, will lose. And you will never be on the top, therefore, in evil, your destiny is one of guaranteed loss and failure.
