Like a dog that returns to its vomit
Is a fool who repeats his folly.
His watchmen are blind,
All of them know nothing.

Dreamers lying down, who love to slumber;
“Do not give what is holy to dogs, and do not throw your pearls before swine, or they will trample them under their feet, and turn and tear you to pieces.

2 Peter 2:18

For certain persons have crept in unnoticed, those who were long beforehand marked out for this condemnation, ungodly persons who turn the grace of our God into licentiousness and deny our only Master and Lord, Jesus Christ.
