¶ The man that flatters his neighbour spreads a net for his feet.

Proverbs 29:3-5 New International Version (NIV)

A man who loves wisdom brings joy to his father,
    but a companion of prostitutes squanders his wealth.

By justice a king gives a country stability,
    but those who are greedy for[a] bribes tear it down.

Those who flatter their neighbors
    are spreading nets for their feet.
