The Book of Psalms (a multi-generational work likely finalized between the 6th and 3rd centuries BC)
“Whoever is pregnant with evil
conceives trouble and gives birth to disillusionment.
Whoever digs a hole and scoups it out
falls into the pit they have made.
The trouble they cause recoils on them;
their violence comes down on their own heads.”
-Psalms 7:14-16 (New International Version, 1978, 2011)
