Ben Sira 32:3-6 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)
3 You who are older, it is your right to speak,
but temper your knowledge and do not interrupt the singing.
4 Where there is entertainment, do not pour out discourse,
and do not display your wisdom at the wrong time.
5 Like a seal of carnelian in a setting of gold:
a concert of music at a banquet of wine.
6 A seal of emerald in a work of gold:
the melody of music with delicious wine.
