Never Bite the Hand That Feeds You...

Another way of rephrasing that idiom with some additional value which I came across sounded like this...

One who bites the Hand that Feeds will end up being bitten
True enough. Biting the hands of someone who feeds you... feeding a person can mean helping a person out in times of trouble, caring for the person tremendously without having any blood-relation or plainly being there for the person when needed most... but instead of being repaid in kindness, the person who feeds got bitten. That is a very hurtful thing to do and the wound in the heart will have an everlasting effect. Well then... who's going to bite that person back? Certainly not you or I for it is written...

Do not take revenge, my friends, but leave room for God's wrath, for it written: "It is mine to avenge; I will repay," says the Lord.

On the contrary:

"If your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsty, give him something to drink. In doing this, you will heap burning coals on his head."

Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.

[Romans 12:19-21]
