The spider spreads its web wide
And catches insects unaware
Who didn't know the web was there.
It traps them,
And sucks out their insides.
Old Satan spreads his web wide
And catches people unaware
Who didn't know his web was there.
He traps them,
And sucks out their souls.
Beware, both moth and fly!
Beware, both you and I!

--Hebrews 2:14, ESV
He delivered us from such a deadly peril, and he will deliver us. On him we have set our hope that he will deliver us again.
--2 Corinthians 1:10, ESV
