Animal Talmudika / Watch out for the Bite, the Sting, and the Hiss of the Biblical Prophets

Beware [of the Prophets]...for their bite is the bite of a Fox, their sting is the sting of a Scorpion, their hiss is the hiss a Serpent, and all their words are like fiery coals.

- Pirkei Avot (Ethics of the Fathers) 2:10
