A person who flatters his neighbor
spreads a net for his feet. Bible other translations

“spreads a net for his feet.” The Hebrew is ambiguous as to who the “his” refers to. It can be interpreted to refer to either the one who spreads the net or the one for whom the net was intended, or both. Flattery entraps both those who speak it and those who are deceived by it.
