Indeed, I am aware of that source, and Aesop's (whether it's original Aesop is doubted by scholars) similar (turtle, spider) story, and a medieval Sufi variant.

A commentary I've seen on the Nedarim story ... in which both scorpion and frog survive crossing the river ... is that the man the scorpion stung to death is a man who was about to commit murder, and, thus, the story demonstrates that YHWH may act in mysterious (to humans) ways.

In the Sufi story, both scorpion and frog survive, and, the scorpion stings a poisonous snake about to bite a man. Suggesting divine providence is mysterious ?

Somewhere I have notes on the sources for these, I may be off since I can't find them to refresh my recollection.
«One day it will have to be officially admitted that what we have christened reality is an even greater illusion than the world of dreams.» Salvador Dali
