Judas had given them the slip.
      - Matthew (Mathew) Henry, Commentaries

      - Junius (pseudonym, possibly of Sir Philip Francis)

Men are oftener treacherous through weakness than design.
      - Francois Duc de la Rochefoucauld

      - Titus Livy, Annales (XLIV, 15)

Hast thou betrayed my credulous innocence
  With vizor'd falsehood and base forgery?
      - John Milton, Comus (l. 697)

Oh, colder than the wind that freezes
  Founts, that but now in sunshine play'd,
    Is that congealing pang which seizes
      The trusting bosom, when betray'd.
      - Thomas Moore,
        Lalla Rookh--The Fire Worshippers

Oh, for a tongue to curse the slave
  Whose treason, like a deadly blight,
    Comes o'er the councils of the brave,
      And blasts them in their hour of might!
      - Thomas Moore,
        Lalla Rookh--The Fire Worshippers

There is no knife that cuts so sharply and with such poisoned blade as treachery.
      - Ouida (pseudonym of Marie Louise de la Ramee)

It is time to fear when tyrants seem to kiss.
      - William Shakespeare

Et tu, Brute?--Then fall Caesar.
      - William Shakespeare, Julius Caesar
         (Julius Caesar at III, i)

To say the truth, so Judas kissed his master
  And cried, 'All hail!' when as he meant all harm.
      - William Shakespeare,
        King Henry the Sixth, Part III
         (Plantagenet, Duke of York at V, vii)
