Hypocrite
 
  An hypocrite is like unto an apple, that is very faire and beautiful without, but within is corrupted and rotten.
            —Anthonie Fletcher (Certain Very Proper and Profitable Similes, 1595)
  1
  Hypocrites! for ye are like unto whited sepulchres, which indeed appear beautiful outward, but are within full of dead men’s bones, and of all uncleanness.
            —New Testament
