Attendite a falsis prophetis
qui veniunt ad vos
in vestimentis ovium
intrindecus autem
sunt lupirapaces
a fructibus eorum
cognosectis eos.

Watch out for false prophets.
They come to you in sheep’s clothing
but inwardly they are ferocious wolves.
By their fruit
you will recognize them.
Matthew 7,15.
