Ben Sira 13:9-10New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

When the influential draw near, keep your distance;
    then they will urge you all the more.
10 Do not draw too close, lest you be rebuffed,
    but do not keep too far away lest you be regarded as an enemy.

If you are invited to the home of someone influential, be reserved in your behavior. Then he will invite you more often. 10 If you push yourself on him, he will put you in your place. On the other hand, if you keep your distance from him, he will forget about you.
