Proverbs 6:13

Hebrew Bible

11 and your poverty will come like a robber, and your need like an armed man. 12 A worthless and wicked person walks around saying perverse things; 13 he winks with his eyes, signals with his feet, and points with his fingers; 14 he plots evil with perverse thoughts in his heart; he spreads contention at all times. 15 Therefore, his disaster will come suddenly; in an instant he will be broken, and there will be no remedy.

Sirach 27:22

Ben Sira, Ecclesiasticus

20 Do not go after him, for he is too far off, and has escaped like a gazelle from a snare. 21 For a wound may be bandaged, and there is reconciliation after abuse, but whoever has betrayed secrets is without hope. 22 Whoever winks the eye plots mischief, and those who know him will keep their distance. 23 In your presence his mouth is all sweetness, and he admires your words; but later he will twist his speech and with your own words he will trip you up. 24 I have hated many things, but him above all; even the Lord hates him.
