“. . . the deceitfulness of sin.” Hebrews 3:13
Thomas Brooks:

Sin is of a very deceitful and bewitching nature. It will kiss the soul, and look enticing to the soul, and yet betray the soul forever. It will with Delilah smile upon us-that it may betray us into the hands of the devil-as she betrayed Samson into the hands of the Philistines.
Tell the bewitched soul that sin is a viper that will certainly kill; that sin often kills secretly, insensibly, eternally-yet the bewitched soul cannot, and will not, cease from sin.
A man bewitched with sin had rather lose God, Christ, heaven, and his own soul-than part with his sin! Oh, therefore, forever take heed of playing with or nibbling at Satan’s golden baits!
