a dart

followed the Israelite man into the tent, and drove it through both the Israelite man and the woman-- through her belly. Then the plague on the Israelites was stopped,
Numbers 25:9
but those who died in the plague numbered 24,000.
as a bird
Proverbs 1:17
It is foolish to spread a net where any bird can see it,
Ecclesiastes 9:12
For man certainly does not know his time: like fish caught in a cruel net, or like birds caught in a trap, so people are trapped in an evil time, as it suddenly falls on them.
Proverbs 9:18
But he doesn't know that the departed spirits are there, that her guests are in the depths of Sheol.
