Ben Sira 3:21-23New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

21 What is too sublime for you, do not seek;
    do not reach into things that are hidden from you.
22 What is committed to you, pay heed to;
    what is hidden is not your concern.
23 In matters that are beyond you do not meddle,
    when you have been shown more than you can understand.

Sirach 3:21-23New Revised Standard Version Catholic Edition (NRSVCE)

21 Neither seek what is too difficult for you,
    nor investigate what is beyond your power.
22 Reflect upon what you have been commanded,
    for what is hidden is not your concern.
23 Do not meddle in matters that are beyond you,
    for more than you can understand has been shown you.

Sirach 3:21-23Good News Translation (GNT)

21 Don't try to understand things that are too hard for you, or investigate matters that are beyond your power to know. 22 Concentrate on the Law, which has been given to you. You do not need to know about things which the Lord has not revealed, 23 so don't concern yourself with them. After all, what has been shown to you is beyond human power to understand.
