Sirach 11:32
From a fire’s spark come many coals, and sinful people plot and connive to shed blood.
For as corrupted bowels send forth stinking breath, and as the partridge is brought into the cage, and as the roe into the snare: so also is the heart of the proud, and as a spy that looketh on the fall of his neighbour.
A single spark can set a pile of coals ablaze, and a sinner is just waiting for a chance to do violence.
One spark kindles many coals; a sinner lies in wait for blood.
From a spark many coals are kindled, and a sinner lies in wait to shed blood.
From a spark many coals are kindled, and a sinner lies in wait to shed blood.
From a spark many coals are kindled, and a sinner lies in wait to shed blood.
From a spark many coals are kindled, and a sinner lies in wait to shed blood.
From a spark of fire come many burning coals, and a sinner lies in wait to shed blood.
From a spark of fire come many burning coals, and a sinner lies in wait to shed blood.
Fire is increased of a sparkle (or from a spark), and blood is increased of (or by) a guileful man; for why a sinful man setteth treason to (or for) blood. [Of one sparkle (or one spark) fire is added, and of one (who is) treacherous, blood is increased; a man forsooth sinner waiteth to (or lieth in wait for) blood.]
