    Arabic - Lebanon
    The dictionary المورد gives the following literal translation of the saying:
    إنّ بين الكأس والشفة مزالق كثيرة
    As for any equivalents in Arabic, it says:
    ويقابله في العربية قولهم: "القدَر أقرب إليك من سواد العين إلى بياضها". وشبيه به قول الشاعر:‏
    ما بين غَمضة عين وانتباهتها يبدّل الله من حالٍ إلى حال
