On the contrary, their diverse ethnic composition makes them vulnerable to internal and external conflicts, which cumulatively tempt intrusion by more powerful neighbors.
Напротив, вследствие разного этнического состава они уязвимы для внутренних и внешних конфликтов, что в совокупности делает их привлекательными для вмешательства со стороны более могущественных соседей.

Sin, with sacrilege whose very horror made him shudder, made use of her to tempt him.
Грех пользовался даже ею, пресвятой девой, дабы соблазнять его; это ужасное святотатство подавляло его.

But Lisa is not like her; she would not demand degrading sacrifices from me: she would not tempt me away from my duties; she would herself incite me to hard honest work, and we would walk hand in hand towards a noble aim.
Но Лиза не чета той: она бы не потребовала от меня постыдных жертв; она не отвлекла бы меня от моих занятий; она бы сама воодушевила меня на честный, строгий труд, и мы пошли бы оба вперед к прекрасной цели.

Far from this; Varvara Ardalionovna did not marry until she felt convinced that her future husband was unassuming, agreeable, almost cultured, and that nothing on earth would tempt him to a really dishonourable deed.
Совсем даже напротив: Варвара Ардалионовна вышла замуж после того, как уверилась основательно, что будущий муж ее человек скромный, приятный, почти образованный и большой подлости ни за что никогда не сделает.

did you ever tempt those holy men who ate locusts and prayed seventeen years in the wilderness till they were overgrown with moss?"

"Indeed, Roland, you forget yourself so strangely," said she, "that you will tempt me to take serious measures to lower you in your own opinion by reducing you to your proper station in society."
— В самом деле, Роланд, ты забываешься настолько, что я должна буду принять серьезные меры, дабы убавить твою самоуверенность, а именно — вернуть тебя на подобающее твоему происхождению место в обществе.

"Confound you," cried the baron, suddenly getting up; "you tempt me to show you at once that I am not 'your good baron.'"

Albine for a moment defied him with her fixed glance; then, carried away by a fresh burst of passion, she exclaimed: 'Well, answer me. Accuse me! Say it was I who came to tempt you!
Альбина смерила его долгим, пристальным взглядом, потом снова взорвалась: – Ну, отвечай же, обвиняй меня! Скажи, что это я тебя соблазнила!

I may not believe in an epidemic of suicide, but if it's always catching my eye, there really are moments, you know, when it might tempt one."
Я, может быть, и не верю в эпидемию самоубийств, но если торчит вот это перед глазами - право, есть минуты, что и соблазнит.
