Egyptian Legends - Part I

I teach Western Civilization and one of the classes I teach is on Egypt.  The Egyptian have a legend on Osiris, the god of fertility.  However, he is fooled by his brother Set, and hops into a jeweled box and the box then becomes his coffin.

Egyptian gods are anthropomorphic - i.e., gods with human characteristics.  How can a god not know that the box was going to be a trap?
