The devil can cite Scripture for his purpose

ANTONIO:

Mark you this, Bassanio, the devil can cite Scripture for his purpose.

An evil soul producing holy witness is like a villain with a smiling cheek.

A goodly apple rotten at the heart.

Oh, what a goodly outside falsehood hath!

Shakespeare
Merchant of Venice
Act 1 Scene 3
