Proverbs 26:27

Hebrew Bible

25 When he speaks graciously, do not believe him, for there are seven abominations within him. 26 Though his hatred may be concealed by deceit, his evil will be uncovered in the assembly. 27 The one who digs a pit will fall into it; the one who rolls a stoneā€”it will come back on him. 28 A lying tongue hates those crushed by it, and a flattering mouth works ruin.

Ecclesiastes 10:8

Hebrew Bible

6 Fools are placed in many positions of authority, while wealthy men sit in lowly positions. 7 I have seen slaves on horseback and princes walking on foot like slaves. 8 One who digs a pit may fall into it, and one who breaks through a wall may be bitten by a snake. 9 One who quarries stones may be injured by them; one who splits logs may be endangered by them. 10 If an iron ax head is blunt and a workman does not sharpen its edge, he must exert a great deal of effort; so wisdom has the advantage of giving success.
