Whose confidence is fragile, And whose trust a spider's web.
The lizard you may grasp with the hands, Yet it is in kings' palaces.
They hatch adders' eggs and weave the spider's web; He who eats of their eggs dies, And from that which is crushed a snake breaks forth.
"He has built his house like the spider's web, Or as a hut which the watchman has made.
